No one walks into a relationship without the proper footing…
In a collection of original essays drawn from her open ended and inquisitive relationship column “Sex and the Chester,” Alyssa Velazquez explores a twenty-first century world dominated by proverbial singles, foreign and domestic affairs, and emotional recall relationships. In her intensely personal memoir of unscripted cute meets, dates that should have never happened, and affairs to forget Velazquez searches through her past for wisdom, perspective, and advice on the survival of a hopeless romantic. Following familiar scenarios through her never ending, often time predictable search for love in flats, sneakers, rain boots, and even a pair of Manolos her electric honesty makes us contemplate if maybe the key to the “mating ritual” is all in our shoes

Well written and with heart.

Loved it! This book begins with a woman on a ferry reflecting on her past relationships. I loved it. I thought it was well-thought out, beautifully-written, and well-edited. It’s a quick read, quite entertaining and humorous (my favorite was her mention of chivalry in the hospital). So true! Insightful and authentic, I think almost any woman can relate to this short work and even gain a deeper understanding of their own past relationships, of themselves, and of finding peace and happiness. I highly recommend it!
