If you feel like sex just isn’t worth the effort, you’re not alone. Forty million American women are frustrated by their lack of sexual passion. They know something’s missing—and their husbands know it, too—but the emotional, physical, and mental obstacles to healthy desire can be a knot that seems too tangled to unravel.

This book is not something that I would typically pick up to read as one of my first choices but I thought I would give it a look.

There were some good things in the book that I could relate to, and I look forward to having my husband read in hopes he will fully see how they are explaining my feelings. Maybe he will get it? With the right mindset, I ...more
