Summary
  • As the lovable and naive Synclaire James of the prime-time hit "Living Single" and as a single woman herself, Kim Coles knows what it's like to be without a man, to be with a man who's not "the one," and to be or not to be. Now that's the question. In her first book, I'm Free, But It'll Cost You, Kim explores everything from the potentially treacherous first date to tired pick-up lines like "Got some fries to go with that shake?" Pleeease!

There's plenty of insider information for you too, including "Ten Ways to Tell if a Woman Is a Gold Digger," "Ten Biggest Turn-on Myths" (ladies, you'll want your men to read this section carefully), and the ultimate section on "Lie Detectors." Whether you're hoping to find the man of your
  • dreams or, more importantly, avoid the man of your nightmares, I'm Free, But It'll Cost You is just what you need to make some sense out of the strife of being single. So kick back, get a good bedside lamp, and soon you'll know the real deal on how to live successfully single
