Debra Hampton comes home excited about making plans for a permanent relationship with her live-in boyfriend Vincent, only to walk in on a heartbreaking surprise: Vincent in bed with the first woman who welcomed her to their neighborhood. She then finds out that the relationship has been going on for quite a while, and the ring Vincent has been talking about buying was for the other woman, not her. The sad thing for Debra...this is not the only broken relationship she has dealt with.

Doc Reid has been helping Debra's friend, Sherry, with her relationships so she introduces him to Debra. In this book, Doc Reid discusses how he helps Debra deal with her broken relationships and learn how to make the right choices while dating.

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this book, but as I started reading about Debra’s heartbreaking discovery, I wanted to keep reading to find out what happened. The situations discussed are things people face every day. The authors answer many questions about the difference in the way men and women feel about sex, dating and relationships. The Doc gives women advice on how to have a more lasting relationship rather than so many broken ones.

This book would be good for women to read before starting in a relationship; it just might save a lot of heartbreaks and hurtful situations. Even though this book is mainly for women, men will find it helpful as well, because the authors give their advice and tips on both sides of relationships, sex, love and dating. I would encourage anyone single to read this book and follow the advice of the authors.
