    Can a single girl really have no-strings sex minus the heartache?

    Lauren moves to London looking for fun, not commitment. So why do the men she dates assume she's searching for The One and run for the hills?

    It's time for drastic action. Lauren turns her love life into an experiment, vowing to obey the advice of a different dating guide each month. She'll follow The Rules and play The Game to discover the science behind being a no-strings siren.

    But modern dating is more complicated than swiping right - and Lauren's about to discover that the things you run from tend to catch up with you . . .

Melissa Pimentel grew up in a small town in Massachusetts in a house without cable TV and therefore much of her childhood was spent watching 1970s British comedy on public television. At twenty-two, she made the move to London and has lived there happily for thirteen years, though she has sadly never come across the Ministry of Funny Walks. She spends much of her time reading in the various pubs of Stoke Newington with her husband (everyone thinks they're weird but they don't care) and being awoken in the night by her two squabbling cats, Roger and BoJack. She works in publishing.
