From Publishers Weekly
The racy adventures chronicled in Sarah's new and collected essays (some from her column of the same name on literarymama.com) initially make for breezy reading, a west coast Sex in the City roundup of romantic escapades and frustrated desires for the Pampers (as opposed to the pampered) set. Unfortunately, Sarah's tales lack both insight and momentum. Throughout the five years covered here, Sarah never comes up with a more compelling reason for pursuing the "thorny," "chaotic" life of a single-mom "serial dater" than her up-front admission, "I missed having a man." Two hundred pages in, talking plans with her next disastrous date despite "red flag" warnings, "in big, bold letters, 'I'M UNAVAILABLE,' " Sarah ponders the obvious: "So, why don't I call it off right now?" She doesn't seem to know (lamely offering, "it' s my pattern"), and neither will readers-making it difficult to muster enthusiasm for yet another mismatch. Readers will also wish for more of Sarah's daughter, Mae, often mentioned but rarely seen; calling "Something's coming down the pike!" on her way to the potty, she's a natural-born scene-stealer. Sarah's ability to communicate her longing and lust is the best reason to read this book; unfortunately, it's also the reason why some readers will lose interest long before the "Where are they now?" postscript.

I absolutely LOVED every page of this book! I completed it in about two days. It was such a fantastic read. I am so grateful for Rachel because along the way, I totally saw myself during parts of her journey. I would definitely recommend this book to other single mothers trying to get back into the dating scene because Rachel keeps it so real, you can't help but feel like you're not alone anymore in navigating the dating scence. If you don't have any female friends you can talk to about dating, AND you're a single mother, then this book is excellent for you too.
She's gone through lots of the online dating "pitfalls" and she takes the reader through all of it. Plus, Rachel is from the Bay Area. When she would describe all the places she went on dates like Zachary's Pizza in Berkeley, I knew exactly what she was talking about so that was fun too because I'm from the Bay also.
I can't say enough good things about this book. I enjoyed it thoroughly~
