Debra fell for the wrong man, who she believed was her "forever". Vincent was caught in the act of fornication when Debra arrived home, seeing a familiar face with her man. Too many times we see women get cheated on--never see it coming or choose not to--and to know. Men need to stand and take their place to tell them face-to-face before engaging in the act. Luckily, she has her girls to cry to and get it together!

Rachel and Brian, the married couple, are having sexual issues in their marriage with their routine scheduled sexual duties and who wears the "pants" in the household. Rachel doesn't understand the beauty of sex and the importance of marriage as a whole due to emotional baggage. We see so many case-scenarios on relationships due to bringing the wrong baggage in the relationship and not willing to speak about it or clean up their act to get it right.

Sherry is seeking help from Doc Reid and tells Debra about him since she keeps getting involved in countless going-nowhere relationships. She needs to reprogram her whole outlook on men and relationships. Doc Reid breaks down the process of men: sees women with his eyes, his crotch, and then his heart. He can only get pass the visuals when his emotional, spiritual, and mental maturity happens. Use the goody box as a built-in power source to be emotionally connected to you.

Loved reading all this on p. 81. Ironically, we see the author, Christopher Reid put his name in the book also as Doc Reid. Overall, will ladies take the mental notes or brush it off and still open the goody box and end up in emotional disasters repeatedly. The man should "invest in you" not your goodies that are his ultimate focus (which is usually the case as visual-sex hunters).

This book is a tool for hopeless, countless relationships that go sour, and women who want to learn what their goody box is used for—(what is the main purpose). Some know the power of it, others use it for their own ill-gotten gains as most just use it and can't accept when men continue to hit it and leave you pitiless (or empty-handed).

Is the ending for a sequel? Cliff-hanger because you left me hanging?
