    Disappointing.

    The book is supposed to be about regaining the love for herself. It's very sad and depressing, the way it should be, but it shouldn't linger with a person once they put the book down. It could be just me, but this book is more about lies and betrayal [negative], rather than her actually going after what makes HER happy, just her being alone [positive]. The summary on the back was a bit misleading.
    It was funny in the beginning with wit and one night stands, but then it started going downhill towards the end. I was expecting something like Chelsea Handlers Horizontal Life, but it wasn't anything compared to what I thought it was going to be.

    Just plain dull

    I found this book to be a boring detailing the offenses of her evil ex in-laws, a selfish yet spineless ex husband, superficial friends and uninteresting dating escapades. It seemed like the author wanted to be honest, tried to be witty, but couldn't pull it off. After I finished reading this book, I was left wondering why I wasted my time.

    A reviewer

    While reading this memoir, I felt right there with Stephanie through all her experiences...many of which I could relate to. She did a great job of captivating my attention as a reader. There's more than a moderate use of profanity...which I didn't mind. It made the book seem incredibly candid...as though she wrote down exactly what she thought/felt and kept it that way with no apologies. I'm glad it wasn't overly edited. It's not a sugar-coated 'oh look at me I'm perfect' memoir. It's what it is...'Straight Up and Dirty.' LOVED IT!

    I couldn't stop reading it...

    When you come across a book like this that is so personal, and heart breaking, you can't stop reading. I found myself almost feeling alot of what she went through. There were parts that were funny, familiar, and completely gut wrenching. There was emotion and heart put into the book, and for that it's one of the best I've read this year. It's definately given me new insight for dating. The only part that let me down was her abortion after trying so hard to conceive. At that point the book changed for me, so I gave it 4 stars.
