A true story of sun, sand, sex and secrecy.
For a sassy young woman used to blagging, blogging and slogging her way through dreary London, the call of a glamorous, tax-free lifestyle in sunny Dubai just couldn't go unanswered. Over the course of two years, while an entire city rose from the dust Becky Wicks scaled a good few rungs of the hard-to-climb career ladder. She became a celebrity editor in a land where sex definitely does not sell and spent most nights in a five-star blur of champagne luxury. Dubai offered everything, but things soon got messy - not least because a wealthy Arab man made Becky his mistress. these days, shamed rule-breakers and failed entrepreneurs are a dime a dozen in Dubai, yet the city retains its allure. Becky Wicks lifts the burqa on the razzle-dazzle and reveals some of what goes on in the world's fastest up-and-coming city and shopping Mecca.


  • Top 3 worst books I ever read

    By Ovspba
    Most people like talking about silly things they did when they were drunk but to write a whole book based on such immature behaviour seems a bit excessive. I hope she has grown up by now and found more intriguing or interesting things to write about. I probably wouldn't bother even looking at a book written by her after this though.

    Having recently returned from short holiday in Dubai I am finding this book very interesting and quite funny in places. I like the style of writing, light and easy to read.
  • Nothing to write home about

    By Udder2011
    Good as a series of blogs, not sure if they hold together as a book. The authors style starts to grate after a few chapters, and not much of any significance seems to happen - but for 99 cents who really cares.
  • Light and easy

    By DannyMckell
    A light and easy read that didn't require too much thinking. Worth the money I paid as it has kept me entertained through nights of feeding a newborn. Recommended!

    I found the book got a bit boring. Too much of the same thing. It really didn't seem to go anywhere.
