As a sassy young woman used to drinking, partying, blogging, and shopping her way through dreary London, the call of a glamorous, tax-free career in sunny Dubai just couldn’t go unanswered. Over the course of two years, an entire city funded by oil wealth rises from the dust around her as Becky rapidly scales the career ladder. She becomes a celebrity editor in a land where sex definitely does not sell and spends most nights in a five-star blur of champagne luxury. 
Dubai offers everything, but things soon get messy—not least because a wealthy Arab man makes her his mistress. Skinny-dipping, affairs, gay parties—Wicks soon discovers just how easy it is to break the law in Dubai! Wicks lifts the burqa from the razzledazzle and reveals some of the most scandalous goings-on in the world’s fastest up-and-coming city of gold.
What’s it like to be a beautiful female expat living the good life in the MiddleEast? Becky Wicks reveals everything in this scandalous Middle East tell-all.

I didn't finish reading it. Why some people do not realize that what is appropriate for a chat with your friends in Face book is not necessarily have to be embodied in the book.
Chasing money, the author is going to work in Dubai, where she doesn't work at all but spends her time after office hours on bars, clubs, etc., puking every time on streets and other public places because of too much of consumed alcohol. She becomes the mistress of a wealthy married Arab man, describes how it was hard to find familiar in the Western world, women's hygiene articles and the like. She condemns Dubai residents for being shallow, and she is even worse.
