✨Review✨Come ~ Rita Therese I read this on my memoir kick in June and it took me completely by surprise. It’s also been sat on my shelf for months and I’m glad I’ve finally read it and can be confident in all the reels I’ve put it in as a recommendation! Rita Therese details her early time as an escort starting in her late teens. She’s now in her mid 20s so that gives an idea of the timeline covered. The book is broken into three sections; sex, love, and death. And it is not for the faint of heart. Therese spares no detail about the clients she’s had, what happens with the sex, and then her eventual decline into drug addiction, an eating disorder, and mental illness. This book takes you on an emotional rollercoaster. One minute it’s funny, and the next it’s devastating as she talks about the death of her brother. It’s not very long, but it is heavy in parts, with a very graphic account of her rape by a client. One thing that stuck out to me was the timeline jumping around, it’s not in order, and her memory seems a bit unreliable. Which didn’t bother me, but may bother others. Overall a detailed, heartbreaking, and interesting look into the life of an escort and what it’s actually like as a sex worker. CW: sexual assault (this is very detailed), drug use, suicide, mental illness, eating disorder, sex content. [ID: a white hand holds up Come, it has a red cover. In the background is blurred but there is a Sadness figurine from Inside Out, and the top of a lamp]
