Publisher's Summary

In the 1980s, Jill Dodd determines that her ticket out of an abusive home is to make it as a top model in Paris. Armed with only her desire for freedom and independence, she embarks on an epic journey that takes her to uncharted territory - the Parisian fashion industry, with all its beautiful glamour and its ugly underbelly of sex, drugs, and excess. From there Jill begins an eye-opening adventure that includes trips to Monte Carlo, sexual exploitation, and falling in love with one of the richest men in the world, agreeing to become one of his wives - until she finds the courage to walk away from it all and rebuild her dreams.

The Currency of Love is a raw, honest, and inspiring portrait of a young woman's struggles and triumphs from fashion model to Saudi billionaire's pleasure wife to founder and creator of global fashion line ROXY. This modern memoir with a feminist fairy tale twist reveals how one woman chose to live her life without forfeiting her independence, ambition, creative expression, and free spirit, all while learning one invaluable lesson: Nothing is worth the sacrifice of her integrity, inner peace, and spirit.

I want that time back along with the brain cells.

This book was TERRIBLE! The narrator was whiny and the story was too. The author takes no accountability for any actions. Everything works out because she is amazing and things just work out for her. She was a pleasure wife but she really loved him for who he was, she was a model who had standards when no one else did. I call BS on all of it. This was terrible!

I wanted more

it was more about fashion school that the harem and the jealousies and drama that must accompany that lifestyle. not always 100% honest, it feels.
