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.

E. Miller 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Goodreads review
I absolutely loved this book! I really really need best friends like Clarissa’s! Man they had me laughing so much!
Clarissa is the embodiment of a woman going through it. From a struggling mom, to a deadbeat ex and father to her kids, to struggling with her job dealing with harassment from her boss, to overcoming her insecurities and grasping what it means to do whatever it takes to support your family.
I loved the fact that she took the calling job and embraced all the weirdness and crazy fetishes of her callers! The slippy penguin is still my favorite lol I was dying laughing!! But overall I really loved how she became something more than she ever imagined!
This story will have you laughing, it’ll suck you in with some drama, intrigue, excitement, and some spiciness and you’ll find yourself saying out loud “yesssss girl”!
Beth is my favorite author and will not disappoint in any of her books! But this one is my favorite now!!
Thank you Beth for letting me read another fantastic story you created!! I loved it so much I even read aloud to my husband a few parts and he’s like that’s a good one!
So again thank you Beth I loved it!!!
"Just finished your book and absolutely loved it! Great characters and lots of laugh-out-loud moments that had me wondering if you ever spoke to a Harold or tool guy. I used to love penguins, but not sure I will look at one the same way again. Well Done!
L. Rypel 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️, Goodreads Review.
Just finished reading Beth’s new book Calling Clarissa! Yes, I did read it in 5 hours!
From struggling single mother to successful dominatrix, Clarissa goes through it all to make sure her children are taken care of, falling in love unexpectedly and starting her own business were perks she was not expecting.
I promise you will laugh, cry, and be stunned on every page! Now I have to wait again for the next one! Love this author no matter the genre she writes in!
"I can't tell you the last time I enjoyed a book so much! I have A.D.D and it's hard for me to find books that hold my interest. You definitely do, and I look forward to reading your other books. I really enjoyed it! Your writing is amazing. I couldn't put your book down."
C. Robinson 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Goodreads rating.
"It was awesome! So much fun! I liked that it was fun, had some serious stuff, and had a steamy romance! The phone call scenes were hilarious, lol. I also like the original spin that you had the guy as the submissive instead of another alpha make, lol!"
"I absolutely loved your book. I think it's amazing.

Slam Dunks Luscious Reads 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Goodreads review.
A single mum, and two best friends who are more like sisters, a few bottles of wine lots of laughter and next minute you're a smexy phone operator helping people live out their fetishes one call at a time .
I need friends like that in my life just saying ! 😉🤣.
Clarissa is a single parent working a dead end job for a boss who's as sleezy as they come. He's always dropping sexual innuendos and trying to cop a feel every chance he gets .
Clarissa needs a new job ASAP however money is tight with two boys to look after and a ex husband who forgets he even has children until it suits him to remember.
( Spoiler alert he doesn't 😡)
One girls night with her best friends and a few bottles of wine they talk Clarissa into applying for a phone sex operator job, after all she has the husky sexy voice that would turn any man or woman for that matter on and with her current circumstances what does she have to loose ? .
I loved the characters in this story and how Clarissa with her circumstances still managed to put one foot in front of the other because she's a strong woman raising two amazing boys and just does what needs to be done . ( As a single parent myself I know the struggle is real )
Beth Worsdell wrote this story with strong female characters and a brilliant knowledge of the Dominant/ submissive/ fetish industry giving the reader a insight to how popular this scene has become over the years.
I loved the witty banter and one liners between Clarissa and her best friends and I loved how she had such a fantastic support network that encouraged her to step out of her comfort zone and embrace her new career with such passion.
There were some elements that had this reader wanting to throat punch a character or two and then stomp on certain parts of their anatomy. 🤦♀️
But also I wanted to embrace the friendship and love that Clarissa had with her best friends and extended family.
All of this then leads up to Clarissa eventually finding her happily ever after with Tobias (who I claimed just saying 😜 ) who not only worships the ground she walks on but embraced her children like they were his very own . Giving Clarissa the encouragement and new found self esteem to start her own business and finally put to rest the horrors of her past .
With every chapter you see Clarissa go from a shy mentally abused woman to a vibrant self assured and confident woman who takes life by the nipple clamps and gives it a hard pull .
I love this story I loved the witty banter and I love a happily ever after , ❤️ and I learnt a few things along the way as well . Five flaming stars from this reader or should I say five smacks with a paddle mistress Clarissa . Lol 😜.
Dark fantasy author, Josephine Wrightson. 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Goodreads Review.
Having been involved from day one with the authors great thought process of how this story would flow. I was lucky enough to get a forward copy. And she did not disappoint.
The storyline as a whole was hilarious. Rom com, would not normally be my go to read, but this one is special.
It has heart and love. Filled with fun and laughter, a single mum who many will be able to sympathise with. And men that really need a swift kick. Dealing with more serious subjects and men that many would love to see get their retribution.
It a real life funny, serious, heartwarming and eye opening story .
Well done …
Renee Simmons 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Goodreads review.
Clarissa hates her job where she barely makes enough to support her and her two young sons. And dreads going in to a boss that harasses her on a daily basis but feels that she has no choice since her ex husband cares more about all of his women than about his children.
Clarissa’s friend suggests her working from home as a sales rep, and phone solicitor and would eventually be able to leave her job,…it was worth a try. But when her boss physically assaulted her, she defended herself and walked out for good.
Building her sales clients and her confidence, she is full steam ahead! But her boss has other plans.
I really enjoyed Clarissa’s and her two best friends story.
Learn how Clarissa, gets even, stands her ground, builds her confidence, and how she will make you laugh throughout the whole book!
Brittany Paige 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Goodreads review.
Calling Clarissa is a hilarious and incredibly entertaining book.
The main character Clarissa is absolutely loveable. She’s sweet and sassy and I was constantly cheering for her.
Her friends and family are loyal, hysterical, and rowdy in the best way possible.
The chat line calls are wildly amusing!
Clarissa is such a fabulous heroine; she takes some out of the box risks and ends up creating an amazing life for herself.
This was brilliantly funny and a definite binge read!
Patricia. 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Goodreads review.
I haven’t enjoyed a book like this in a long time. It’s hard to put down.
I could not stop laughing. I will never look at penguins the same again.
If you’re looking for a book that will make you laugh plus empower women I highly recommend.
Hollie Lopez 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Goodreads review.
Throughout all 410 pages of this book, my face looked like the cover photo. Wow.
This book kept me wanting more after every page. I ended up laughing out loud so often that my husband had me read bits to him & he laughed just as much.
It made me laugh, cringe and feeling extra naughty.
I cannot look at my husbands hammer & tools the same way. I cannot wait for book number 2.
Angela 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Goodreads review.
Love, love, love this book!
This single mom clearly is open to any means to better her and her two young son’s lives. Her choices lead to hilarious scenarios that will keep you laughing out loud!
I just loved the many twists and turns to her story and where it all takes her.
One of the most imaginative, and entertaining books I’ve read in a long time!
Shelly Shaw 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Goodreads review.
OH MY!!! This book was a total surprise.
It was at first enough to get my ire up because of Clarissa’s boss’ actions. Then we meet her best friends and HOLY CRAP ON A CRACKER, I want these girls to be MY best friends. Funny, smart, and such loving friends to Clarissa!
Then we meet the ex-a$$hole and back to being irked!! Then when the crap really hits the fan in comes the gorgeous Tobias!! Holy hotness!
This story made me literally snot my iced coffee through my nose! So dang funny but yet serious at times!
This book was a fantastic read and I will happily read it again.
Beth Worsdell you now have me as a #1 Fan!! Thank you!!!
Lisa Hall 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Goodreads review.
A single Mom with a serious dilemma.
After being assaulted by her boss she has to find a new way to support her 2 kids. Could she actually work on a phone sex hotline?
Let the hilarity ensue. I will leave the rest of the plot for you to discover.
I haven't laughed that hard reading a book in years. It didn't matter what was going on in my own life, this made me laugh regardless.
I didn't want it to end!
This book was so well written that time just flew by. The story was funny and intriguing with a plot that took you on a uproarious ride.
I can't wait for more from Worsdell.
Leslie Rush Author 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Goodreads review.
I was lucky enough to read an advanced copy, and Beth Worsdell's latest may be her greatest!
"Calling Clarissa" is heartfelt, horny and hilarious. Clarissa transforms from an unappreciated divorcee with a crappy job and a criminally perverted boss to a confident, sexy, powerful woman, with a new-found "customer service" talent and a little help from her ride-or-die friends.
I don't want to spoil any of it, but after reading this I will never look at my husband's work bench in the same way.
Amy 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Goodreads review.
