Virtual Book Tour: Unmasking Secrets to Unstoppable Relationships by Lorie Ann Davis, MA, CRS

Relationships are something we are all a part of. They bring us comfort, happiness, and unity. We are part of work relationships, friendships, families, and, of course, romantic love relationships. Every relationship takes time and effort. They require give and take to keep them strong. Sometimes we are able to maintain a connection with others for years, and sometimes people move in and out of our lives rather quickly. And—let’s face it—sometimes our relationships can cause us grief, stress, or frustration. So why do we work so hard to make someone else happy? Why do we endure the stress and compromise? Simply put, we long to feel connected to another human being. Those connections, though sometimes difficult, can ultimately affect how we feel about our work, our lives, and ourselves in general. We want to feel needed, loved, and cared for. As well, we long to provide that for someone else, which is why we seek intimate relationships. Creating and maintaining an intimate relationship can be one of the most rewarding experiences of our lives, but just like every other relationship, it requires effort and sometimes guidance.

When it comes to our intimate relationships, we all want a relationship that others notice and envy, a relationship that stands the test of time, one that is unstoppable. You know—that couple that seems to be so close, in love, and happy. You have no doubt that they are completely in love and committed to one another! We can all have that kind of relationship, but it doesn’t just happen; it takes work, commitment, and know-how.
Bringing two people together from varying backgrounds with different personalities to form a family can bring its own set of challenges. No one teaches us how to have a relationship that is strong and healthy or how to have a relationship full of love and passion. Some are blessed with positive role models such as parents or family members that have strong foundations full of respect and love. This can offer insight into what they may want in future relationships. Others aren’t as fortunate and may be exposed to unhealthy, unhappy relationships that ultimately end. Those people may think that a healthy, lasting relationship is impossible and that marriage is not supposed to last. They may believe that they cannot maintain that level of happiness over time with one partner, a mindset that is simply not true.
The ultimate goal of any intimate relationship is to get to a point where there is balance between friendship and passion, what I call the unstoppable stage. I believe that most people are satisfied with a good relationship because they do not believe anything more is possible. They really feel that they have it all and do not know any better, or they do not believe that anything more is a realistic expectation.
Sadly, those people enter a stale stage in their relationships. They may be communicating well and managing conflicts, but they are missing the passion that they desire. Or perhaps the intimacy is there, but they are not communicating effectively, and conflicts are creating a wedge. Or perhaps they feel stuck in their relationships, feeling like there is no hope. They may feel like their partners will never change, so there is nothing they can do.
One person can shift the relationship, and it can be either partner. You have the power to change your relationship for the better. This book will show you how. That said, I’ve written this book primarily for women who want to proactively enhance their relationships, with or without the buy-in of their partners. Ladies, I encourage you to share this book with your partners. Men reading this book can find value in it as well through gaining a better understanding of themselves and what is important to them. They will learn valuable information about how women think and what they want from men, as well as tools to better communicate with you.
This book will unmask secrets and provide you with tools that you can use immediately to start out on the right path or to find your way back to the place where it all started. I talk throughout the book about the characteristics of men and women. I am speaking in general terms that apply to most men and women. I do realize that not everyone fits into the mold. Some men and women may be atypical. If you find this true about your situation, that is okay. Relationships work just as well if the roles are reversed in some areas, as long as both partners are in agreement. You can still use the information in this book to create an unstoppable relationship. Yours just might look a little different on the outside. The underlying principles of the book will still apply to you.
You will learn how to communicate effectively with your partner and why the way men and women think can be crucial to how you relate to one another day-to-day and in the bedroom! You will learn how to break the cycle of waiting for your partner to make changes in order for your relationship to improve. YOU have the power to change your relationship. Relationships can be complicated, but yours doesn’t have to be. With just a few secrets, you can create a relationship you deserve, the one you have always dreamed of but weren’t sure was possible, one that is unstoppable!
The first step is to learn to become the best partner you can be. This will take work on your part. You will have to examine your thoughts, beliefs, and actions. Which ones are not moving you forward on your path to the relationship you desire? This takes intention and soul searching. You will become not only the best partner you can be but also a happier person in the process. By becoming the best partner you can be, you will bring out the best in you and your partner.
Does this sound like the kind of relationship you would like to have? My hope is that by now you are interested enough and willing to consider that this is a possibility, even for you. I promise you that it is attainable, and this information will help you create the relationship you have always desired but were not sure was possible. This book is the combination of years of research, hours spent working with clients as a counselor for over twenty-eight years, and my own personal life journey.
