Description

If you can't date anyone nice, don't date anyone at all...


Dating is a dangerous sport. So after her sixth successive failed relationship, romantically-challenged 20-something Sass decides she's had enough.


The Dating Detox is born. No men, no break-ups, no problem.


The result? Her life - usually joyfully/traumatically occupied with dates, clothes and vodka - is finally easy. Chastity rocks. No wonder nuns are always singing. Everything falls at her feet. Especially men.


Will Sass break the rules? Why does fate keep throwing her in the path of the irritatingly amusing - and gorgeous - Jake? Will she ever roll the dice and play again? Or is a love-free life too good to risk losing?


For the post-Carrie Bradshaw, post-Bridget Jones, post-credit crunch generation of singles, life isn't beautiful, a bitch, or a beach. It's a party.

About Gemma Burgess

Gemma Burgess moved to London at the age of 22. She started working as an advertising copywriter, and applied herself more wholeheartedly to having a good time. Eight years later she decided to distil some of her experiences into The Dating Detox: the book for women with confidence, wit and style but absolutely no clue whatsoever how to know the real thing when they see it. (Love, that is.)
