The book could have been improved by additional detail. Kendra participated in many trips within the GND series. It would have been very interesting to read about the behind the scenes preparations and activies during more of the various trips. More detail about the workings of the Mansion to include a number of the people involved as well as the commercial side of making GND would have made good reading.
Overall this is a good book. It has an honest feel to it, and is, to date, the best book that has come out of the modern Playboy Mansion/Girls Next Door genre. It is highly readable and hard to put down.
The fact she was not close to Bridget or Holly does not surprise me. The fact she didn't settle down over night after meeting Hank didn't raise an eyebrow. What does shock the reader is how candid she gets and does so in a matter of fact way-no hidden agendas. This is the best celebrity memoir I've read in a long time. If honesty sells, this should be a blockbuster.
I found the section on her drug use disturbing, not because she was doing drugs at such a young age, but because she repeatedly says she was not an addict, she could quit anytime she wanted to, she just chose not to. Hello, that's the description of an addict! With the enormous amounts of drugs she was doing, she was definitely an addict, and the denial of that made the whole thing seem a lot less sincere.
I was also surprised that Kendra seems to scorn Hef, based on descriptions throughout the book. She basically puts up with the sex, mentions a few times how her mind is elsewhere when she "has" to do it. She scoffs at the 9 p.m. curfew and talks about how "boring" life is at the Mansion. She also acts surprised when she finds out she has a weekly allowance while living at the Mansion and assures the reader that she didn't go into it for the money. So let me get this straight: she isn't physically or sexually attracted to Hef, she is bored by Mansion life, but she's NOT in it for the money? Spare me!
Overall, I found this memoir boring and uninspired and it actually made me think a lot LESS of Kendra after I read it.
In the beginning Bridget was my favorite- she just seemed so sweet- but soon after the 1st season Kendra and Bridget were both my favorite (Holly kinda rubbed me the wrong way for some reason)
Anyway, those questions were really answered-- well the situations with Kendra anyway.
She has told us the story of her life- her REAL life and not what some producers wanted her to be portrayed as.
She gives details of situations in her life that normally a female would be too embarrassed or ashamed to tell.
She has had a difficult life in the past and now things just seem to keep getting better for her.
I really enjoyed the book, some parts of the book were kind of slow but I still couldnt put the book down- I read it in one sitting (how sad is that?!?!) and I wish there was a follow up-- not really sure what else could be said in that book so soon because she really touches on all ages of her life - up until she had her son-
Hank truely seems to love her and they make a beautiful family, I wish her nothing but the best and I am so glad she came out with the juicy details of the mansion life and life as one of Hef's Girlfriends (I heard before the book was released - I preordered- that it gave details of what goes on there and if it didnt provide that info I probably wouldnt have bought the book)
So, I got my questions answered and then some,
THANK YOU KENDRA FOR BEING HONEST AND OPEN WITH YOUR LIFE STORY!!
