REVIEW: The Real Deal on Love and Men by Michelle McKinney Hammond

I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical about reading The Real Deal on Love and Men. There are plenty of books on the market about dating, waiting, finding, and keeping a man. I expected to read more of the same advice. I was pleasantly surprised. Michelle McKinney Hammond, best-selling author, speaker, and singer, pulls no punches in her “tell it like it is” book about creating and cultivating a healthy relationship. This book is a must-read for singles!

The Real Deal on Love and Men is a thoughtful and relevant book that readers of all stages can appreciate – whether single, divorced, separated, or seeking. Hammond shares practical wisdom, while addressing relationship questions from readers in an uplifting and authentic way. I laughed, gasped, and cringed while reading The Real Deal. She makes it clear from the onset that our love lives are directly related to our relationship with God and ourselves.

Hammond comes alongside readers as a relationship coach. She addresses issues that many people want to discuss, but are afraid to ask. She dives into several topics including loneliness, online dating, sex, expectations, and marriage. Readers are encouraged to learn from past mistakes and create a better future.

If you’re waiting on a knight in shining armor to rescue you, you may be waiting a long time. Hammond shares that we must create the life that we want to share with others. We must not over-spiritualize the need to ask real questions and examine our hearts in relationships.

The Real Deal on Love and Men is a must-read for singles of all stages! Grab your friends and learn to create better relationships. Order your copy today!
