One of the most entertaining books I've ever read. Rosa Blasi has the amazing ability to make you laugh even as her life is being turned upside down. You know she's honest because she points out her own flaws. (We all have them, but how many of us will admit to them? And publicly - no less.) Loved peeking behind the scenes in the life of the professional athlete, a world few of us ever know much about. I highly recommend this book if you need to learn how to handle the crap dished out by the jerks around you. (Learn to laugh and move on.) I hope she writes a sequel.

i had heard the author on the radio and what she "pitched" was only found at the beginning of each chapter. i was more interested in the lives of cheating athletes and their wives (as i heard on the radio) rather than Rosa on the hunt for the right sized athlete with right size "equipment" Quite honestly she was in the game long enough to know that men in that society wouldnt commit she fooled herself into believing other wise.

A good life tale about going for an egotistical jock, then getting stuck in a nightmare. A funny bio about life with me first jocks, who think the world revolves around them. Great, easy read.

This book is great!! I was a little optimistic at first but a friend of mine practically made me read it and I couldn't put it down was I was started. I feel like Rosa did an amazing job connecting with the reader and showing to all her fans that she is just as crazy as the rest of us. This book is a must read for anyone who has had relationship trouble or has been wronged by their partner, you will laugh your butt off and probably realize you don't actually have it that bad.
