Synopsis

At the start of the New Year, 32-year-old "singleton" Bridget decides it's time to take control of her life and start keeping a diary. Now, the most provocative, erotic and hysterical book on her bedside table is the one she's writing. With a taste for adventure, and an opinion on every subject--from her circle of "smug married" friends, to men, exercise, food, sex, and everything in between--she's turning a page on a whole new life. Despite her efforts to get her act together, she finds herself caught between two men--a man who's too good to be true, and a man who's so wrong, he could be right. Meanwhile her new employers think she is nuts and her scatter-brained friends are absolutely no help whatsoever.
