Hooked : Confessions of a London Call Girl Paperback

3 out of 5 (1 rating)


'I love drugs. I love getting drunk. Better still both at the same time. It helps me to forget, faster. I am an addict and I always will be. But when I drink, I sniff cocaine, and when I do that, well, I swap my snatch for cash'.

In "Hooked", reformed addict Clare Gee draws on her own experiences of cocaine addiction, alcoholism and prostitution in telling the sensational story of a woman living on the edge.

Emotionally scarred by having never known her mother, Katie escapes to London and immerses herself in a seedy world of drugs, drink, and sex, chasing happiness in the pubs and clubs, and snorting cocaine in private members' bars with her rich punters.

Finding herself in a cycle of prostitution and unable to break free, she turns to drug smuggling and becomes embroiled in a bigamous marriage in an attempt to secure some emotional stability.

From this dark emotional pit, Katie starts her painful journey back to 'wellness' and attempts to rid herself of her addictions for good.

Hooked is a graphic tale of how life as a prostitute really is and what can happen when we search for happiness outside of ourselves. It is a poignant reminder that things can always get better, as long as we remember that when it's time to leave the party, it's time.

Review by

When I picked this up at the library the lady at the desk said jokingly "looking into a new line of work are we".(oh ha ha!) Well this book would certainly do away with any thought that people may have about prostitution being glamourous. This was tough and gritty but somehow I was always rooting for her to survive and by the end of the book I was hopeful that she would indeed make it out the other side and be strong enough to leave her old life behind. Unlike other reviewers here I have not read her blog so did not know anything about the writer, but I am now going to look up her blog to see what she is doing now. A really good read
