How to Make Sex Look Boring 19 Jan. 2014
By Norman A. Pattis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Rebecca Kade manages to accomplish the improbable: She makes sex seem uninteresting. I was, frankly, surprised. She boasts of being one of Anna Gristina's, aka, the Soccer-Mom Madam's, top girls. I represented Anna in her prosecution by the Manhattan District Attorney's Office. The prosecution accused Anna of being a wealthy and well-connected Madam, but, from where I sat, next to Anna, most of the prosecution's case consisted of hot air. I read this book hoping to learn a little more about the maelstrom.

The author portrays herself as the Mary Magdalene of high-priced hookers. After falling in love with her rock-star beau, she finds herself pregnant. When daddy splits, all she wants to do is raise her love child. Then the unnamed rocker kidnaps her child. Kade, desperate for cash, turns to hooking to finance her legal battles. She never enjoyed it at all, she says. She did it all for the love of her child.

This doesn't even rise to the level of a revisionist history. Woodard/Kade is cashing in on the notoriety of being the first to publish a book about this tabloid sensation of a case. She wrote the book she hopes her daughter will read.

Hence, the stiff -- no pun intended -- and wholly conclusory accounts of her trysts. She even makes kink sound dull. A more genuine account would have revealed the psychic cost of slipping between the sheets with strangers. A prostitute's life is one of emotional devastation.

She claims the Manhattan District Attorney's Office required her to turn tricks while working for them as an informant. In other words, Cy Vance Jr. was pimping her out in the name of justice. Vance denies this, of course, but she claims to have secretly recorded meetings with prosecutors.

Too often the book merely recycles what was printed in newspapers. I noticed this in reference to my involvement in the case. When I am quoted, the remarks are simply lifted from old clips. The author refers to court pleadings without apparently having bothered actually to read them.

The book does have the ring of truth in one regard, however, and I did learn a lot from her about why prosecutors were hell-bent in their belief that Anna engaged in child-sex trafficking. Apparently, one of Woodard/Kade's wealthy Johns once asked her to procure a young boy for his pleasure. She claims to have reacted in disgust.

During my representation of Anna, prosecutors kept promising leniency if Anna would give the name of the man who loved boys. Throughout the case, we denied any such knowledge. Prosecutors were incredulous.

It turns out they had the name, Woodard/Kade gave it to them. She says the man blurted out his request after a lust fest. Nothing in the book suggests Woodard/Kade shared the request with Anna; she suggests she ran from the man in tears and disgust. Months later, after she had been turned into a confidential informant, prosecutors wired her up and trolled her past the man. She confronted him, talking about his desire to have oral sex with a young boy. Her editors didn't notice that this more graphic detail is at odds with her claim to have recoiled at the mere mention of a child. I suspect she knew far more than she confessed, both to prosecutors and to readers.

The John did not confess to Woodard/Kade on tape. Anna never corroborated the tale. He was never prosecuted; his identity remains secret.

So, too, do the names and tastes of all the men Woodard/Kade bedded as part of what the press regarded as one of the world's premiere escort services.

Woodard/Kade returned to school to study forensic psychology. It should be interested to watch her when she first takes the stand to testify in her new professional life. Will counsel attack her testimony using the theme: "Once a whore, always a whore?" Or will they carefully read her book, and conclude she is but a tease, exaggerating her role to make a quick buck.

Everyone wants to be victim 25 April 2014
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
" You’ve probably heard of Anna Gristina, the notori­ous “Soccer Mom Madam,” who allegedly operated a multimillion-dollar escort service with clients from the Forbes billionaires list to Capitol Hill. But you haven’t heard of the woman who helped bring the Soccer Mom Madam down—until now. Call Girl Confidential is Rebecca Kade’s compelling, intimate account of her career as an escort . . . and her work as an undercover agent for the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office. " ~ Amazon

What I liked about the book was it was a quick easy read, almost too easy because I could go a day without reading it, and pick right back up where I had left off. Not much filler in this one.

Basically Rebecca is saying she got into high end prostitution when her boyfriend took custody of their daughter and only allowed her limited visitation rights. Rebecca, needing cash for high legal fees, immediately jumps to prostitution as the means to get the cash. She starts out with a smaller scale pimp- Kristin but soon jumps to the pony club with Anna aka "Soccer Mom Madam".

Rebecca states in her book money was the driving factor for her to choose this lifestyle and then she goes on to say how she was flown to exotic vacations, and other countries for clients such as Tokyo, Vera Cruz, ect. She also states that her clients paid for her expensive wardrobe- she would literally shop until she dropped and thought nothing of putting it on their tab.

Where is her daughter when she is out jet-setting around the world or dropping thousands of dollars in Chanel?

Rebecca also says she went undercover for the ADA when they were gathering evidence to prosecute Anna - and that the ADA wanted her to keep prostituting, in effect break the law, while she was working undercover for them.

Rebecca included several pages of secretly taped dialogue in her book- information she had secretly taped - recording, a conversation with her and Anna. I skipped that because after a page or two, it was boring.

There was also mention in the book that one of Rebecca's clients had requested a young male boy = now Rebecca claims to have left in disgust and never saw him again.

Later in the book she claims to have met up with the man and tried to get him to admit on tape he had requested a young boy

This left me puzzled because no where else in the book was child prostitution even discussed except in this one scene in the book, and the man admitted to nothing and even knew she was wired- .

I think this was Rebecca's twist to turn herself into the victim and willing to work with the law when busted and not thinking twice about taking everyone else down with her.

Disjointed and quite frankly - dull 7 Mar. 2014
By A. Spence - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This poorly-written story seems to have been put together with little thought or creativity in an obvious attempt to make money as soon as possible on a story that already has faded.

Poor writing & not much insight into the life of a call girl. She is just a rat & a boring rat at that.
