Hot Mama: 12 Secrets to a Sizzling HOT Marriage
Hot Mama to the rescue!
In this witty book, hot mamas Kathi Lipp and Erin MacPherson share hilarious stories and creative ideas from moms everywhere to help you build a relationship with your spouse that's happy, healthy, and fun. From building confidence and banishing guilt to flirting (remember that?) and wearing clothes that get you - and him - in the mood, Kathi and Erin show you how to take your sex life from ho-hum to sizzling hot.
Review: First of all: I'm not a mom. Second of all: This book was still awesome. So, even if your like me and kids are *hopefully* a ways down the road, this book has some awesome advice. Sitting down with Hot Mama was like having an awesome session of girl talk with a best girl friend.
Kathi and Erin jump right into all the tough and embarrassing issues and face them straight-up. I loved the honesty, openness, and creative problem solving for all types of issues, from: I gained ten pounds and there's NO way I'm feeling sexy so my husband certainly won't find me sexy either, to "Yikes! Sex hurts!", to handling simple fatigue and learning how great times with your husbands can come out of the those nights where the only thing you want to do is drool on your pillow and get some Zs. Best of all, this book is really fun, and it makes you want to tackle your husband and try some new things. Now, who can argue with that?
One of the reasons this book was so refreshing and helpful was that in church-culture sex talk is avoided like the plague outside of, "Never do it! … Unless your married." News flash: Even Godly women need to talk about sex. While I certainly agree that waiting until marriage to be intimate is a really special and important thing, sometimes it's really nice to hear what other women are thinking and to find out how other women have dealt with sex-related problems. This book is not a porno and it is by no means inappropriate. It is an honestly written, open, and classy discussion about how to improve your relationship with your husband.
Basically, I loved this book, and while some of the suggestions and chapters in here are definitely for moms with demanding babies or nosy teenagers, it really has some fabulous advice for us baby-less ladies. I recommend Hot Mama.
A free copy of Hot Mama was given to me by Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group, in exchange for my honest opinion.
