You’ll Do Anything For Her By Hosier & Conger

 

A New Relationship Perspective

By Dr. Maureen E Hosier and Berta Hosier Conger

You'll Do Anything For Her
You’ll Do Anything For Her

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SYNOPSES:  YOU’LL DO ANYTHING FOR HER BY DR. MAUREEN E. HOSIER & BERTA HOSIER CONGER:

Do you find yourself always being the peacemaker, the one who always bites your tongue, the one who does not stir the pot?  Have you questioned why you never receive the love you desire?  Do you give everything you have, receiving little in return?  If so, this book’s for you;  grab a copy of You’ll Do Anything For Her.

Dr. Hosier and Conger present a learn-able technique to relearn & retrain habits forged in childhood.  Few of us realize the extent our rearing influences our adult lives.  In You’ll do Anything For Her, Hosier and Conger explore and explain this learned behavior in detail.

With insight into learned behavior and using techniques Hosier and Conger describe, you can change your life for the better.  You can stop bottling up all the stress and negative feelings from not being your self and allow your self emotional freedom.  I have separated those two words, your and self, as the Doctors did in this book;  emphasizing the importance of you and not her.

Although geared from the man’s perspective, this book can easily be used by either.  I found the insight thought-provoking as I took a look at my life.  If we are honest with ourselves and willing to explore the possibilities, we can have much deeper emotional connections with our partner.

Doctor Hosier and Conger stress the process is not a quick fix;  it requires time, effect, and patience, as well as, professional help.  Delving into finding the correct professional, Hosier and Conger detail what you should look for in a professional therapist or psychiatrist.   As well as, the result could be the opposite of what you expected.  Each person in the relationship must be willing to accept and work with the other.

LOOKING GLASS LIES

“Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes.  Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit.  1 Peter 3:3-4

 

STORY-LINE LOOKING GLASS LIES BY VARINA DENMAN:

Looking Glass Lies by author Varina Denman will rip out your heart.  An intense look into today’s society filled with warped values, self-destruction, and deception.  I could not put this book down.

Cecily Ross, divorced from her mentally abuse husband, returns home to Canyon, Texas hoping to find peace and a way to fix herself.  Thinking she never met the beauty standards the media sells women, Cecily has a wealth of self-confidence and emotional issues.  Returning homes supposed to help her center and heal emotionally;  things do not always work out as we hope. However, with her father at her back, a support group led by an awesome woman, an old friend at her side, and maybe a little romance, Cecily may just change her life.   Come with Cecily and friends on their journey of revelation and renewal.   My reviews for psychological woman’s romance fiction novel, Looking Glass Lies, follows.

CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:

Talk about an emotional roller coaster; Looking Glass Lies has it in spades.  Filled with drama, emotional turmoil, self-destructive behavior, and the jaundice view the media gives women of themselves, Looking Glass Lies grabs the reader immediately and never let’s go.  Every woman who has ever looked in the mirror and seen ugly, imperfection, or compared herself to the latest stick thin model, should read this novel.  Denman faces these issues head-on and takes off running.  She masterfully impresses on the reader to see their true self;  stop listening to the media who’s only interested in

STORY-LINE LORD OF PLEASURE BY ERICA RIDLEY:

In Lord Of Pleasure, the reader finds a lively romp through Regency England.  Mousy good girl Camellia Grenville barely opens her mouth and sits in the corners; she guards her reputation to make sure her two sisters, Dahlia and Bryony, find suitable matches. Considered on the shelf, a wallflower, an old maid, Camellia’s the dutiful daughter.  Her one glory is music where she excels; privately Camellia has dreams.  Unwilling to go meekly along with her parents decision for her life, Camellia finds herself at a notorious masked ball dressed to kill.  Ready for some fun in her life, she gets more than she expected.

Lord Wainwright, reputedly a hell-rake, hedonist, debaucher of women, suddenly finds himself betting he can change his reputation. He has 40 days to succeed and stay out of the papers.  However, fate places a delectable masked young woman in his path.  Staying respectable will be very hard to do.  Will fate allow Wainwright and Camellia to forge a relationship that could destroy all she holds dear.  Is a love match possible between the debaucher and the good girl?  My reviews of romance novel, Lord of Pleasure, follows.

CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:

Lord of Pleasure is fine romp in the ballrooms and parlors of Regency England.  Combining two very different people together was an artistic stroke by Ridley.  Or were they really, deep inside, so very different?  I loved how well the sisters related and
