    Smart, Sexy, and Fun

    After suffering many heartbreaks over the years, one recently, I was ready to give up on romance and relationships altogether. I can only say Thank G-d I found this book! The incredible collection of poetry-not to mention the fun, witty commentary - was a life saver. The 'Sex In the City' writing style made me laugh and cry and most importantly move on. I've ordered copies for all of my single friends. I highly recommend this book.

    Revenge Is Best Served Cold

    Insightful, outrageous, funny, cathartic, educational and a must-have for anyone who has ever loved and lost, and lived to love again. In this tiny book the reader will find the solutions to surviving life's greatest pleasure and pain. It is, after all, a human being's most heartfelt need to be necessary to someone. Give yourself a gift - or better yet, buy two and give one away.

    The Hell with Valentine's Day

    What an amazing collection of poems for the grieving masses! These authors realize what the commercial world fails to acknowledge every year at this time: Most of us do not live in a Hallmark world. Who, after all, hasn't had their heart broken? And who isn't sadder but much wiser for it? With this book, Velez and Esselman have become the Barrett and Browing for sadder-but-wiser yuppies who are looking for love in all the wrong places. I can hardly wait for this duo's next book.
