Editorial Reviews

From the Author

We had such an amazing time writing this book! This was a Mother and her daughter keeping it all the way real about previous dating, marriage and love relationships. We told our stories and shared our lessons, we interviewed hundreds of men and some women and asked them the direct questions about cheating, marriage, dating and expectations that everyone wants answered. And they told it all! Some of what we found out, we didn't want to know but we were glad we were exposed. We share all of that and more in this book.

Yes, we also talked about some of the things we didn't see eye to eye on in reference to Steve Harvey's book(s) but he wasn't our main focus. In fact, some of his advice we actually could relate to but there were some things we just coudn't buy into and so we spoke about it. However, our major point was that we wanted women to understand that God made us perfectly in his image, we don't have to "think like men" to understand them, we simply needed to stop falling for empty words and promises and watch their(mens) actions. If a man is a liar, cheater or his behavior is inconsistent and you can't depend on him when you need him, it doesn't take you thinking like a "Man" to get that. It's not rocket science, it's calling a "spade a spade" or a "dog a dog" and its trusting your God given intuition and paying attention to "red flags" while honoring your "gut". It's also about recognizing a good man when you see him too.

We are women who have been married, divorced, in love, single, rich and poor, and have dated when we didn't have self worth, loved too hard and had our hearts and spirits broken, and who got back up with reknewed strength, determination and gratitude and finally got it right(or are getting it right). Today we are in good relationships with ourselves first and with the men we have allowed in.

We expect great treatment and we get it now. That was the whole point.

This book is resonating with our readers because we(women) have all walked a mile in each other shoes. We understand when our sister says her heart is broken or "girl I found out he was married, three months later!". We can relate to another woman's relationship stories because we are her and she is us. We felt that if we shared our lessons and told our stories and IF they could help just one woman get it, prevent one woman from additional heartbreak and to date and love smarter, then it would be worth exposing ourselves. It was the most liberating and empowering thing we have ever done.

We gave what Steve and no other man could, a woman's perspective on dating and relationships from the inside looking out. This book is humorous, real, emotional and empowering! Read it and see for yourself why it continues to be a best seller!

Rhonda Frost (Suwanee, GA) is a writer and editor. She is a contributing writer for BlackVegas.com and an active blogger for RedRoom for Writers.com. Rhonda is a professional student in the study of dating and relationships, spends her waking hours reading relationship books and interviewing people about marriage and dating.

This book makes 100% more sense than Steve Harveys "Act Like a Lady, Think Like A Man".

I felt at peace after reading this book...at peace and empowered like never before. I've read tons of articles and self help books on relationships, building self worth, self esteem---(but ironically I did not read Steve Harvey's book, nor do I need to now), been to seminars, had talks with girlfriends and female relatives, received advice and counseling, prayed, pleaded and even "sworn off" men for temporary periods of time because I was tired of getting my heart broken. I've always said I was going to write a book and screenplay as well chronicling all the foolishness I've been through.

After reading this book I made several stark observations...

1)The philosophies, advice and counsel of professionals (you know the ones with all of the initials and credentials behind their names) who have been trained to heal our wounded hearts is valuable, but sometimes you can better to relate to and can better heed the advice someone who's been THROUGH IT!

2)Even two beautiful (Mrs. Frost and Mrs. Hall) successful women who have overcome odds, who are spritually connected, have a tight support systems, have been educated, have wealth and notoriety, in other words have it "going on" can be played, duped, abused, mistreated, beaten down, have their self esteem threatened,and left worn out and wounded. At the time you are being abused it feels like only the plain, common, unsuccessful or unknown can fall prey to this type of hurt, because that who the prepetrators tell you YOU ARE!

3)Shanae and Rhonda don't tell you anything you haven't heard before, but allow you to put a different lens over your "love blind" eyes and see what you may not have before.

WOW.... that is the word and thought I am sticking too. "WHY DO I REALLY HAVE TO THINK LIKE A MAN?" self help golden book is beyond words... It is writen in story format that lays down the rules, cards on the table, concerning women and relationships! ANY women will be able to sit down and relate to this book with open arms... surrender to the thoughts of what Shanae and Rhonda has in store. The stories and advice that they share with you is honesty and true... that they themselves surrendered to you without holding back an ounce of the pain and endurance they went through, for women to learn from, to offer advice to, or whatever way you may look at it... to help women succeed to self confidence! WTh! Could this be true? Yes ladies, purchase it.
When I first heard of this book... I really wanted to know what all that talk was about it. Why wasn't this like any other self help book on women and relationships? I have to admit... when I recieved the book in the mail, opened and read the first couple pages... They had me hooked, lined and sinkered to their stories relating to thier relationships. Real life stuff that women often suffer or have problems with... hell even concerns to thier given life style or enviornment which surrounds them. The one that suppose to hold you up when you are down or vice versa. As a social worker... this is the book that I would like to introduce to my women clients... or men for that matter... to get them on track to what family, turst, honesty, guidance, assistance, and respect really is. I also would like to introduce it to women of domestic violence.The book is OUTSTANDING!!!!!! Easy to read, on any woman's/man's level... to set things straight. I must admit... I am pretty aware of my relationships with men or with my husband.

Although a woman frustrated with her relationships penned this book for women frustrated with relationships, there is also a great deal of material useful for guys. Hall and Frost bear the core of their experiences meeting and dating all types of men, from the lying, deceiving married man to the single man that has every intention on staying that way. Some of the men they dated were also honest about their being married, so they fell into the trap of thinking that it is possible that he will be mine and not hers.
From the woman's perspective, some will use this advice to improve the quality of their relationships with men. However, others will adopt the universal denial based on hope, thinking "my situation is different" or "I am better at reading the warning signals than these women are." Weight gain and other female physical flaws are also mentioned many times, both from the perspective of the woman and what the men in their lives were willing to state.
From the perspective of the male, it is possible to learn many things about what women want from a relationship with a man. That information will serve you well if you are trying to capture the woman of your dreams, independent of whether those dreams are applicable for a long week or for decades. The dialog is perky, fairly blunt with very little swearing, nothing harsher than WTF.

Yes, I just finished reading the book from cover to cover (only took a couple of hours because I had to stop to cook dinner)...

Thank you so much! I can't say that I cried at one time while reading from recognition (of me), but I did cry and howl with laughter as I read the truth contained within the pages.

I did see me and my mother though. The mistakes I made in my own failed marriage are things that I heard him say to me at the end of the marriage (not once saying to me DURING the marriage when I asked). I also saw things that I definitely need to start doing and STOP doing.

If nothing else, I appreciated the female perspective on the entire thing. Thank you Rhonda and thank you Shanae for this book.

Trust and believe I'm about to send out a TON of emails to all my friends and tell them to go buy this book because it's the truth!

Thanks again and Congratulations on a job well done!

P.S.-I'm reading this AGAIN.
