Review: Calling Clarissa by Beth Worsdell

Clarissa Darcy didn’t think life could get any worse.

A single mum of two young boys, with an arsehole for an ex-husband who never helps. Thank god she has her two best friends, Becky and Hayley, and an open mind.

Stuck in a customer service job she hates, a pervert boss, and outrageous child care costs, Clarissa doesn’t have two pennies to rub together until Hayley suggests a new way to earn a living, phone sex chat lines.

Shock turns to empowerment when Clarissa unexpectedly finds her niche. Not only does she earn good money in her new job, but she also finds her lost confidence, female sexual power, and a renewed lust for life.

What she also doesn’t expect is to bump into a hot and sexy nerd who wants her to become his Dominatrix.

Who knew that a single mum could find happiness dominating powerful men, and so many men had freaky and funny fetishes?

Clarissa certainly didn’t.

Clarissa and her friends had me in stitches, so this was a fun story to read. Their bond is totally #friendgoals and I loved everything about them. When we meet Clarissa, she’s a struggling single mom of two boys. Her ex is a total deadbeat who can’t even be bothered to wish his own son happy birthday. She works a boring office job with the world’s skeeviest manager sexually harassing her all day, every day, and she does it for a pittance. Desperate for a way to increase her income, Clarissa is intrigued when her friend tells her about a job with a phone sex chat line.

She’s a tad uncomfortable at first but she’s very popular with the customers and the calls are quite entertainment, so she decides to give it a try. With a little research and attention to detail, Clarissa starts making good money, enough that she gets to knee her pervy boss in the jewels and walk out for good. Her luck seems to be improving every day and she soon meets a handsome man with stars in his eyes.

Tobi is sweet, sexy and he wants to take care of her and her boys. It’s practically a fairy tale, except that the pervy ex-boss is a total psycho and he’s hellbent on making Clarissa pay for exposing him. This book has a little steam, some suspense and a lot of heart. I really enjoyed these characters and had a lot of fun with their story. The author is new to me, but I already want more. I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.
