If you want to find love – a love that endures – you have to find a new way than the one you’ve been using for your whole life.

If this is how strongly you can feel, why ever settle for anything less?

“I don’t want to back myself into a corner and have you use only one part of a quote,” says Shupak, “but sex isn’t a bad thing.” Guiliana, Shupak’s alter ego in the book, certainly agrees, and sleeps with one guy after another to put distance between herself and her ex-fiancé, who was cheating on her with his assistant. When police track her down, the petite beauty tackles a cop.

After Guiliana finds out, she moves out, leaving her engagement ring, and everything else, behind. “I turn back to the officer and jump on him like a linebacker sacking a quarterback,” Shupak writes.

You crave the pure feeling you had before, but you spend more time worrying than feeling peaceful about your relationship.

“Zelda barks furiously alongside us as I pound on his chest, screaming at the top of my lungs about how I’m not going to give her up …” Guiliana is arrested and slides headlong into depression.
