Book Description

Okay ladies, it's about time for you to get what you need and want from your man. If you are ready for more intimacy and happiness in your relationship, then you have come to right place. My goal is to provide you with 20 steps that will help you get the kind of relationship that makes you giggle yourself silly with joy.

Is it more cuddle-time you want? More overall sweetness? Or maybe you are looking to rekindle that spark which, over time, has dimmed a bit? I'm going to give you tips and tricks on how to get all of that, on your own terms.

We're going to get down to brass tacks here, so prepare yourself. We'll talk about body parts, manipulation strategies (that sounds terrible, I know!), picking your battles, learning how to trust and a whole host of other ideas designed to create a happier home life for both you and your man.

Happy wife, happy life. Happy spouse, happy house. We've heard it all before. Now it's time to make it happen! Come along on this journey with me and discover the strategies that will help you get more of what you desire from the love of your life. Enjoy!

Praise for Jodi Ambrose's books:

"Jodi Ambrose reestablishes a connection between oft-mystified partners by revealing emotional necessities integral to the understanding of the differing sexes. Remarkable in their accessibility, both books avoid jargon in favor of practical-living advice. These books won't do the work for you, but they will give you the tools to get the job done yourself." --Philip Rosenberg, Host of Sex and Politics Radio

"Jodi Ambrose's books should be required reading for every clueless man and woman who does not understand what can make their relationships "click". Her books are not about blindly going along with what your partner thinks is right. Instead, Jodi Ambrose shows you simple ways to easily get in harmony with your loved one." --Joey Pinkney, Award-winning Book Reviewer and Author

"When it comes to starting a playful yet important conversation about sex and intimacy there's no need to go any further than books by Jodi Ambrose. Writing with both women and men in mind she covers all the bases of what it takes to develop the kind of relationship you want."
--Cyrus Webb, host of Conversations LIVE/Editor-In-Chief of Conversations Magazine

More About the Author

Think of me as an ex-80s rocker chick, former high school teacher, and in your face author, all rolled into one. Yes, I donned Farrah Fawcett hair back when it was cool. I wore shoulder pads with pride and had a combination Baltimore/Virginia accent that HAD to go.

Having survived many wild experiences with a strong sense of self and a wickedly saucy sense of humor, I ended up with an axe to grind and a story to tell. Luckily, through all the craziness along the way, I took notes and it's those notes that helped me write Intimacy: How to Get More of It and Sex: How to Get More of It.

It always seemed to me that people made life so much more difficult than necessary. Pride, game-playing, abject stupidity, thoughtlessness...all of these things combine to turn good people into lousy mates. So, I paid attention. I tracked what types of behavior and language could produce a genuine smile or a rolled eye or a shed tear. What I noticed was that in most cases, people responded to stimuli in a similar way. There are always going to be exceptions, but if the rule holds true 8 out of 10 times, then I thought I could put a checkmark next to it.

For example (and this is so very obvious to women and yet somehow not so much to a lot of men), if a husband/boyfriend/lover checks out another girl while he is with his significant other, at least 8 out of 10 times the girl gets angry. She may not say anything, but I'd see her eye twitch uncontrollably, or a grimace fly briefly across her mouth and I'd know she was at a minimum annoyed, at a maximum livid. I'd immediately think several things:

1. JERK!
2. Poor girl.
3. Why would he do that? Is he mentally challenged?
4. JERK! Oh, I already said that one.
5. How does he not know that is bad behavior? Someone should tell him. I'm going to tell him.

Sex: How to Get More of It and Intimacy: How to Get More of It both take a no holds barred approach to relationships for all of the men and women out there. What can you do or not do to bring joy to your significant other? How can you "work it" so that both of you are happy and getting what you need? The titles may be blunt, but I believe in getting straight to the point. Men typically want more sex. Women typically want more intimacy, security and love. These books unlock the mysteries on how to achieve all of that in, believe it or not, 20 easy steps.

Now, as for writing the cookbook...who would have guessed?? I've spent the vast majority of my life trying to avoid cooking! Then I met my hubby Grant who loves nothing more than spending 3 hours in the kitchen concocting some amazing dish that makes my mouth water as soon as I smell it. I must admit, that concept is as foreign to me as enjoying a root canal, but he simply loves cooking up a delicious meal.

When I began contemplating writing a cookbook, it occurred to me that Grant and I couldn't be the only couple in the world that is made up of one cooking lover and one cooking hater (disliker? avoider?). And then, ah ha! That thought sparked an idea. How about if I write a cookbook that is half-written for people who enjoy spending time in the kitchen and half-written for people who wouldn't mind never entering it again. That's how Darn Good Eats: The Cookbook for Creative Chefs (hubby) and Reluctant Cooks (me) came into being. I figured this way, the cookbook would be perfect for anyone as it contains super easy recipes and fantastically complicated ones too. So whether you love to cook or hate it with a passion (but have to do it sometimes, even if it is against your will!) this cookbook has recipes for you!

Regardless of which books you get, I hope you enjoy them and that they make life a bit brighter, happier and fun. Hugs!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have Book for every woman. 4 Aug. 2013
Format:Paperback
What can I say this is one of the most Brilliant, informative, enjoyable and entertaining books I have read in a very very long time.

To be honest I was laughing my way through it...

It really did give full meaning to the LOL,

My other half (the real A Smedley) kept looking over at me with that look of... come on it can't be that funny... But it was......... totally hilarious in some places, Jodi has a really descriptive way of putting things... very down to earth...

That's not to say that it wasn't full of lots of fantastic advice... it honestly is full of what is really down to earth common sense when it comes to relationships, the thing is until you read this book you don't actually realise that yes that's where I went wrong in previous relationships....

The scary thing is you may actually realise that everything wasn't all "HIS" fault and that you may have even been to blame for some of the breakdown in the relationship .

Not that any sane woman would ever admit that fact. Well I'm not going to... well not to him anyway lol

If you are boring, straight-laced, prim and proper and have an avid dislike of potty mouth.. then this book really isn't for you.

Not that you would need it anyway as you are probably single and always will be ;)
For every other woman... I would say it is a must have must read!!
You wont be able to put it down.

I feel kinda guilty because this is my other half's account and of course he may worry why Men think why is he reviewing this book.. well to be honest this book is just as much a must read for Men as it is for women......
He will get over it..... ;)

5.0 out of 5 stars How to get a near perfect relationship 29 Jun. 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I brought this book as I had brought Jodi Ambrose's other book - Sex: How to get more of it. Sex: How to Get More of It. The SEX book is aimed at men showing them into the minds of women, whereas Intimacy: How To Get More Of It is aimed at women and having a peek into the men's mind. Jodi, once again, is very funny and straightforward in her writing, making it easy for anyone to read.

Some women may look at the book and think "Bog off! I'm not doing that!" but by reading further, you can see what the author is explaining, and being a man myself, I can see a lot of what she says as being true.

Again, some parts are laugh out loud funny, and sitting in my living room reading this book and suddenly bursting into laughter made my cats jump. There is a list of 20 items, and each of these is expanded on well, to explain what is meant.

If you are a woman ... BUY THIS BOOK!!!!
If you are a man ... BUY THIS BOOK!!!! (for your woman)

and don't forget to buy her other book as well

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun to read and effective results :) 12 Feb. 2014
By Leyla
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
At the time of writing this review, there have only been 2 reviews of this book and I wonder if that is because other readers think that the previous reviewers have covered all the main points within their reviews, which is what I thought (?) but IMO this book really deserves more ratings so I thought I'd bulk up the numbers by one!
"Intimacy: How to get more of it: A peek into understanding the male mind" is a concise and comprehensive read that is both entertaining and remains focused on the subject. After reading this short book, ladies should be clear about how their man is programmed or it will confirm what we already knew about our other halves, thus reassuring!
It doesn't matter how great you think your relationship already is, you'll still laugh and learn when you read this book. The best 77p you'll spend on improving your sex life!

5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular Book! Insightful, funny, and truly helpful. 27 Jun. 2012
By Becky L. Harmon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Jodi Ambrose has once again hit it out of the park with her latest book. As with her previous book, it is an equally enjoyable and informative read for both genders, and provides insightful, to-the-point, and highly effective advice and practical strategies for strengthening the bonds within an intimate relationship. If your relationship is stagnant or troubled, or even if it's great and you just want to make it even greater, this is the book for you!

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny but not for the Faint Hearted 17 Dec. 2013
By Rebecca of Amazon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
By reading this book you have to agree that you really do want your relationship to improve. And it is going to mean changing how you do things.

The male brain does not have to be a dark mysterious place. We women can figure out fairly easily what men want and don't want. With that said this book presents a list of things a woman should not do which will keep her man interested in her. For example she shouldn't forbid her man from having his friends over. Instead she should participate, make food and supply drinks. This will make her man feel proud of her. Now this goes a little farther because you then tell your man that after the war, I mean game you will watch a movie and snuggle. This is called a manipulation tactic which is actually just a fun way to get what you want.

Basically this book is about how to be a more pleasant partner. Along the way there are a few laughs.

I'd recommend this to the woman who has just gotten married. I say this because habits are hard to break and a lot of the tips in this book would be great to follow as soon as you get married.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a Must Read For Anyone in a Relationship! 19 Jun. 2012
By Tawn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is insightful, funny and full of excellent advice on how to improve your relationship with your man. It's informative as well as highly entertaining.

The author has a fresh, frank approach to intimacy issues, and I laughed my head off reading her lists of things not to do. I don't want to give away any spoilers. Let's just say she is spot on about what men don't want to hear from a woman.

It's obvious the author has a lot of experience with relationships. She has put a lot of her own observations and thoughts into this. That's the best kind of advice book, one that is written by someone who knows firsthand what works and what doesn't.
