by Karrine Steffans
Any time I review a book by Karrine Steffans I get a lot of blog traffic. The number one domain of the visitors? Morehouse College!! LOL. Yes, those studious brothers at the institution of higher learning up the street from me love them some Ms. Karrine! These are your future leaders, y’all!
Unlike her earlier books, which were memoirs, this is a how-to book for women on dealing with relationships. You would be wrong if you thought she was just going to dish about her secret sex tips to keep him coming back. In fact, the chapter that deals with sex is written late in the book and is barely 10% of the whole thing. She focuses much more on creating your own life before committing to another and how to keep the resulting relationship fresh and alive. Although this is not the name-dropping tell-all that her other books were, she does seem to have learned valuable lessons from her past and shares what she did wrong to help to do right.
Apparently Steffans started this book before she wrote the others and has been working on it off and on. I know a lot of people have a problem with her and the way she has lived her life and won’t even pick this book up because they have already made up there minds about her. More people would read this, I think, if it was published before her memoirs. While I found it a little too long & sometimes redundant (a couple chapters could have been shaved off), I would put this up there with Steve Harvey’s Act Like A Lady, Think Like a Man for relationship advice.
