Editorial Reviews


This very sweet romance aid is out in time for Valentines Day. Written by a sports celebrity couple who have been married for 14 years and together for 18 years, this wonderfully pleasant little romance guide has many practical tips in a question and answer format. Their advice is interspersed with high quality poetry.


The truly beneficial feature of this book is the Luv-Pon, a play on words for a love coupon. There are 42 pairs of these in the back of the book with easy to tear out perforated pages so they can be tossed into a jar, can, or bag; shook up; and drawn out by couples. Each Luv-Pon suggests a couple-activity that might be fun to do, such as: play a board game for 2, bubble bath for 2, double date to the movies with friends, or a weekend getaway of your choice. Obviously, couples could add any other activities they like if these don’t provide enough ideas. That’s the key; these are romantic ideas that can kick start a couple out of the doldrums. Too often, couples may find themselves doing the same-old-same-old. The Luv-Pons provide inspirations to keeping a relationship/marriage fun and interesting. We scored this excellent resource guide and idea generator five hearts.

“Luv-Pons!” is a high-energy, colorfully-written book that is designed to help you keep the romance alive in your relationship. Written by Doug and Jackie Christie who have dedicated over eighteen years of their lives to each other, this book gives you ideas from both the male and the female perspective. Keeping in mind that a lot of relationships stall when the partners start taking each other for granted, “Luv-Pons!” is full of ideas on how to avoid this. These ideas range from recipes, to wine recommendations, to poetry and finally to the Luv-Pons coupons.

While I would never turn down roses, (unless they were an apology for cheating of course), just the thought of having someone do something to show me how special I am by making simple gestures would mean so much to me. That’s what this book does. It offers simple ideas that are designed to bring happiness to both people in the relationship. How nice it would be to receive a coupon for something that might be as easy as giving me a 5-minute scalp massage when I am having a rotten day.

I think that “Luv-Pons!” would make an excellent engagement or wedding gift. It would be nice if couples could start out with these considerate thoughts in mind. It is also the perfect gift to give your significant other. Let’s face it, if a woman gives a man a book like, “How to Make Love for More than 5 Minutes,” he might find it intimidating and emasculating. This is especially true if the key points are highlighted (not that I ever did that to my ex). I can guarantee you that “Luv-Pons!” by Doug and Jackie Christie will not have this effect. It is meant to be shared and enjoyed by both people in the relationship. I highly recommend it!

Format: Paperback
Luv-Pons by Doug and Jackie Christie is subtitled "A Fun Variety Love and Romance Guide for Couples." Each word actually embraced the content of this book with sincere passion. The "fun" is actually in the back of the book which has 42 different date ideas in the form of coupons or Luv-Pons. There were several recipes, choice wines, helpful websites, games to play, a list of love songs and books to read which showed the variety of choices for couples to use to enhance their love life. Many love and romance stories along with classic poems would cause any couple to get into the mood. Doug and Jackie also had a brief Q and A section to guide couples in answering relationship questions.

When I first saw the cover of Luv-Pons with its eye catching red heart surrounded by a menagerie of other colors I knew this would be a fun book. Right away I felt that Doug and Jackie have a heart for couples to ignite that passion that seems to fade so quickly. This book is very positive and upbeat and encourages the reader to take small steps toward bringing fun romance back into their lives.
