Regardless of what anyone says, this is a book about power within America. The wealthy used prostitutes to get the upper hand on other wealthy families in order to secure their place in power. The prostitutes understood the game and took matters into their own hands when one of the wealthy clients mistreats Bernice, an African-American bipolar prostitute.
After the seven women lose their pimp, who becomes a minister, the women strive to earn a living, as prostitutes.
J-Nell the new leader of the group has fits of rage and does drugs because nature provided her with some extra body parts.
Bernice, the prostitute who is gang raped by her own client is bipolar, not stupid. She tells the group of women what happened, and the most educated woman in the group, who dropped out of law school to become a woman of the night, calls a friend who happens to be a judge.
The women put their heads together, and Bernice uses a turkey baster to steal the sperm from her wealthy client and inserts into her womb. She impregnates her-self and nine months later gives birth to a beautiful and healthy baby boy, whom they name Jonathan.
The story surrounds how the women struggle to raise a child and be the best prostitutes in the business. The story is downright funny at times.
As Jonathan gets older, the women of seven take their business from walking the streets on West MacArthur Blvd in Oakland, California to International connections all over the world. They grow a small, but lucrative business into an International call girl operation, which includes benefits such as excessive amounts of cash and a private jet which they share.
Jonathan gets it in his head that he wants to play football, so to keep him silent the women purchase an expensive condo in San Francisco so he can attend high-school and play football. It turns out that Jonathan is good at football and plays college football before he is drafted into the National Football League.
The women are committed to their lifetime plot of shaking down their previous client for money and they don’t want the heir to one of the wealthiest families in America playing football. The book doesn’t make it clear but it seems that the prostitutes use their skills to get Jonathan kicked off the NFL team based on concussions he incurred while playing college sports. For this Jonathan wants to kill all seven of his mother(s).
After Jonathan goes into depression over the loss of his football career, the judge’s daughter comes back into the picture and provides an afternoon of “marry me” love-making. She wants in as Jonathan’s wife. I can only imagine that her father encouraged this union since he knew who Jonathan’s real father was. Of course the author never really says for sure it. If I had one complaint about this book it would be that the author left me to draw my own conclusions, more than once.
The story takes some serious twist and turns as Jonathan tries to gain control over his life from the gang of women. TI the entire story is based on Jonathan getting control over his life. Towards the end of the book, he learns the truth about his biological father. He comes to understand why the women controlled every phase of his life.
In a psychological battle between the prostitute(s) and the client, this book takes the battle to the max. The client broke the rules. The prostitutes, who lost their pimp, handled the situation the best way they could. Were they cruel? Yes. Were they creative? Yes. Illegal? Very
I believe this story is based on true events. It’s hard to believe that someone could just sit down and wrote this story. The ending has a big surprise, as Jonathan finally gains control over his life.
