Love Me True by Jason B. Whiting {Blog Tour Review}

Love Me True: Overcoming the Surprising Ways We Deceive in Relationships
by Jason B. Whiting, PH.D, LMFT


How can love, which is so beautiful and fun, cause such emotional ups and downs? Dr. Jason B. Whiting, a licensed marriage and family therapist, focuses on common relationships to show that deception is at the root of most marital problems. Overcome this and gain back that trust and excitement you’ve been longing for in your relationship.


My Review: 5 Stars

From the very first chapter, guilt sunk in, deep into my bones. I've always considered myself an honest person, but I learned quickly that there's more to being dishonest than just lying and it took me several chapters to get over the fact that I'm not as good as I thought I was.

I've been married for 20 years now and this book has really helped me realize some fundamental ways to make my marriage even better than it is. I love how each chapter has a bullet point recap of the main points, as well as things to work on in the discussion questions section.

Using personal experience, real life situations, as well as numerous studies, this book is (dare I say it?) better than therapy because it's written in "normal people language." There's something for everyone. In some cases, things really weren't relevant to me or to my marriage, but in other cases, there are so many great things to help bring things to a higher level of understanding, communicating, and loving.

I'm choosing to get over myself (and my guilt) and start working on making my relationship better by choosing one thing to work on for now. This is great for anyone in a relationship.
