The Las Vegas Madam: The Escorts, the Clients, the Truth takes you inside the life of a call girl as she spirals into a world of glamour and secrets and expose.
When a scandalous news story splashed across mainstream media about an elite escort agency in Las Vegas, people were shocked to learn there was a tiny mastermind behind the company: a small town girl from Oregon named Jami Rodman who went by the pseudonym Haley Heston.
Meet the secret society of high-end escorts and the men who hire them.
Discover the highly lucrative business of sex as Rodman reveals the hidden websites and layers of complex networking to satisfy man's endless desire for sex.
Timed with the 2007 collapse, Vegas cultivated a new, unprecedented class of call girls...ones with brains, beauty and savvy. Together with her agency, they cleaned up the soiled reputation of prostitution in Las Vegas.
Weathering competition from desperate, violent, and successful pimps and madams, hosting swanky parties, and serving clients in cities that spanned the globe, her agency ruled the oldest profession for several years until one of her star escorts, Olympian Suzy Favor Hamilton, canceled on a jealous and disgruntled client...he wrote an email at 2 AM to the online Smoking Gun. Haley Heston, the Las Vegas Madam, was outed.
The Las Vegas Madam is a provocative memoir of one girl's journey into prostitution and how quickly a fast-paced life built a wedge between her and the very thing she was seeking to begin with love, friendship and meaning. She replaces loneliness with companionship, both as a hired prostitute and recreationally.

"Very Graphic-Performance & Backstory Kept Me From*"
*Very Graphic- The Performance & Backstory Kept Me From Shutting It Off*
Jamie comes from a small town in Oregon. She discovers her sexuality at a very young age and pursues it by herself, then with friends and finally boyfriends. She married 18 and headed to Las Vegas. Once there she discovers the world of prostitutes, escorts, etc.
This book is very, very graphic. It is probably one of the most descriptive and [again] graphic books I have ever listened to. Had **I not agreed to listen in exchange for a review** I probably would've shut it off after the few first chapters.
The redeeming factor for me was not what Jamie did [in her way to toward earning her living] as a call girl but her business sense behind her decisions. It was fascinating to hear her approach and reasoning from being any of the above to a profitable career doing none of those activities.
Teri Schnaubelt, again, is perfection. I have narrowed my top two favorite female performers and Teri is one of them. She is able to choose stories that are interesting and worth listening to, even if the listener doesn't recognize it right away. Spot on in all, performance and characters.
Notes: Graphic descriptions of sex in any manner or form you can imagine. Strong language
This would not be rate able as a movie for a theater. I would imagine that it would be X-rated.
Stars: Overall 4, Performance 5, Story 4

"Honest recollection of one's journey"
Captivating, inspirational, and scandalous. Loved it!! Thank you for sharing your sturuggles and personal growth.
"Erotic, Honest and True,"
Consider 1960's reality as compared to 2016 - thanks Jaimie Rodman for pushing humanities envelope of sexuality until
It combusts into flames! Such awesome and penetrating insights this book allows
I didn't know much about the author or her story prior to listening, but I was intrigued. I couldn't stop listening. If you are not a fan of very explicit sexual details, this probably isn't for you. I felt like I really got to know Jami and I felt for her. I enjoyed it.
"Good story, but alot of x rated scenes"
I plowed through the story pretty fast, but if you are not into explicit details--its heavy on that content. Then again, what would you expect given the title and foundation of the story.
"An amazing story"
I loved this audio book, the story that it told was fascinating and I couldn't stop listening to it. I love how she talked about her experiences, the inclusion of other prostitutes , and how prostitution affected their lives.
"Wow! Such a risky job..."
This is the truth as told by Jami Rodman about her Vegas life as a call girl turned Madam. I found this book interesting, graphic (not too bad), but not exciting. I was intrigued to listen to entire book though. It is as interesting as any biography would be and I liked it as a book. I never realized how much work went into being a call girl (prostitute), nor did I realize just how dangerous and competitive it is. This book is a real eye opener. I also feel this book is a must read by any young person who thinks he/she can run away from home and make it on their own. Definitely food for thought.
The author, Jami Rodman did a wonderful job writing this book. The courage it had to take to put it all in print for 1) To let people know & 2) To tell the truth for those close to her is amazing (just my opinion). Ms Rodman turned the oldest profession into a science. The narrator, Teri Schnaubelt delivers a flawless reading to us with many different voice, accents and so on. Good job ladies!
I received this audio book as a gift in exchange for a honest review.
"Story moved along at a good pace.."
Interesting and fun stories. If explanation of graphic sex upsets you, move along. But if you find raw, true stories of the oldest profession, interesting, it's a keeper..
"An amazing story"
Towards the top
I don't usually listen to books of a sexual nature so I was surprised I wanted to listen to this book.
There isn't one particular scene that stands out. I do like that she helped a lot of women especially after everything came down around her.
No it was too long. I did find it hard to put down.
I'm glad that I listened to her story.
