    A true work of love

    I'm not really good with book reviews but I highly recommend this book. I have probably read it 5 times already.

    Must read if you are single

    Jillian writes effortlessly and gets the points across in a easy to read fashion. The examples are fantastic as it really helps the reader understand the conflicts that many single people are going through. This is a book I would give to all my single friends. If you are single this is a must before your next date!
