I actually love the fact she embraced her new single status and went out of her way to not go out on dates.
It was actually quite a refreshing experience to see Sass want to stay single, rather than go back on all of her hard work throughout the detox and begin dating losers again.
If you can't date anyone nice, don't date anyone at all... So after her sixth successive failed relationship, romantically-challenged 20-something Sass decides she's had enough. I didn’t have to move to next chapter or die; I just sort of did because, unless a book is truly horrendous, I usually finish what I’ve begun to read.
I read it when I was single and tried almost every dating site out there and was becoming the Grinch of love and relationships.

The author messed up, some, on the formatting on this one, too, only it's much subtler—it looks like all m-dashes (like this "—") became question marks. A note about Steamy: There's sex in the book, and a make out or two that get pretty hot, but Burgess cuts well before we get terribly explicit.
