Publisher's Summary

Kacie Main woke up on a blurry Saturday morning, put a hand to her throbbing head, and started to recall the events from the night before. Oh shit, she thought as the evening played back spottily in her head like a Netflix movie during a storm. I can't believe I made out with David. She pulled a pillow over her face and tried to go back to sleep, not yet ready to face those consequences. 

By most definitions, Kacie lived a social, fulfilling life. She had a good job, great friends, solid family. Aside from the 30-something-and-single combination, her life was picture-perfect. But that was just a filter, like how the right Instagram filter can hide the circles under your eyes. The unfiltered Kacie was restless...uninspired...uncomfortable. Something had to change - that drunken make out with her not-single good friend was the straw that broke the camel's back. So she gave up men for Lent - a 40-day cleanse in an attempt to figure out why she felt unhappy in her happy life.

I quit halfway through

There was little of which I could relate to or empathize. It seemed self serving. I’m not interested in her life experiences. We live in completely different worlds. It was like picking my favorite Brazil nuts out of the mixed nut jar- halfway through l, I was no longer interested, what few gems I gleaned were already consumed.
