This book is terrifically inspiring; giving lots of tips and hints for making things in life easier; and seeing the bright side. I have used some of the tips already! I felt like I was being talked to by a best friend. I can't wait to share it with my daughters, aunts, all the women in my life!

This book has such a wealth of great relationship info that I bought several copies for friends. Guess what? Their boyfriends and husbands loved the book too. What a beautiful mind Janea Padilha has! And she conveys her uplifting philosophy with humor and charm. While the book highlights the author's Brazilian bikini wax invention, it's really about how she learned how to deal with life situations from her unconventional Brazilian mother. Honestly...it's some of the best advice I've ever seen.

Co-author and celebrity journalist Martha Frankel adds polish and her innate down-to-earth tone to this must-have gem. BTW...check out Martha Frankel's bio Hats & Eyeglasses. I couldn't put it down.

As a nonfiction reader, my "guilty pleasures" are the books on French women, Southern women, etc. I don't expect great information, just amusement and entertainment so I thought I would enjoy reading a Brazilian perspective, but I felt that her main emphasis was on her waxing business and how she counseled her clients.

Loved reading this book. It was interesting to hear about Janea's life in Brazil and here in the US. Brazilian Sexy emphasizes positive energy and being sexy from the inside out. I liked reading the same beauty advice Janea dispenses to supermodels and the other women who can make it to her New York City salon, even if I can't get there in person. The writing is lively and fresh and you feel like you are listening to your smartest friend tell you truths you need to hear. It made me feel happy and confident, even if I'm not perfect, I can still be Brazilian Sexy.

Martha Frankel never holds back from bringing a sense of truth and purpose to her work. She's in perfect synch with Janea Padilha's voice and vision. Brazilian Sexy doesn't need to disrobe to be tantalizing, evocative and inspiring. Instead it's a conversational page-turner soon to climb to the top of the book charts. This is a sisterhood book to be shared with all. Male readers are not shunned but encouraged to read this book that's empathetic and caring about their needs. The book's tonality embraces a theme of positive energy entitled: Brazilian Sexy: Secrets to Living a Gorgeous and Confident Life.

I love this gem of a book.
After finishing Brazilian Sexy, I felt terrific. It helped me immediately with the way I felt about myself.
I ran to give it to a girlfriend, who I thought would also love the bits of wisdom Janea Padilha shares.
Got some great advise (beauty, sex and relationship) and came away with more confidence than I have had for a while.
How many books can do that?
I recommend this book to women AND men of any age.
Thanks Janea and Martha Frankel.
