Women who loved Steve Harvey’s mega-bestseller Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, will want to read this wise, funny relationship advice book from no-nonsense actress and comedienne Loni Love, who says that putting yourself first is the path toward lasting love.
Loni Love quit her job as an electrical engineer fifteen years ago to pursue her lifelong dream of a career in comedy. Since then she has become one of the highest-paid female standup comics in the United States and her brand of relatable humor has led her down yet another path: relationship advice. Already a regular on Loveline with Dr. Drew, Telepictures is currently developing Loni’s own relationship-based TV show.
In this fresh and funny advice book, Love doles out an ample serving of her unique, down-to-earth take on love, sex, and dating. Love Him or Leave Him delivers answers to women’s most pressing relationship questions with the central message that treating yourself right is always the first line of attack. You may stick with him, you may bail out, but don’t ever be left “stuck with the tab” or getting taken advantage of.
With the assistance of Jeannine Amber, award-winning Senior Writer for Essence magazine, Love offers up juicy tidbits of romantic advice in an easy-to-read Q&A format bolstered by hilarious been-there-done-that-tales. The message of her laugh-out-loud humor is consistent throughout: Put yourself first and love will follow.
Comedian and Chelsea Lately regular Loni Love has long been sought out by friends and strangers alike for relationship advice. Here, she collects their questions and her responses, general romance tips, and hilarious anecdotes from her own life. She helps a woman in love with a married man refocus her romantic energy, and advises another on how to deal with her boyfriend's life-sized Beyonc poster. She provides guidance on getting what you want in bed and knowing when a relationship is over, and describes signs indicating he's not looking for a wife; Love also helps readers spot signs of infidelity. Other standouts include Love's six-step plan for meeting Mr. Right, and pithy comebacks to the question, "Why aren't you married yet?" ("I like checking the single' box on my tax returns.") Drawing from her own experiences, she recalls, among other nightmares, her wig being blown off by the wind during a date, and a calamitous encounter with a stripper pole. Love's advice is witty and wise, and there's something for readers at every stage in their love lives.
