Whether a new or a well-established marriage, the author helps to keep things fresh while exploring new avenues.
My husband and I read this book together so we could discuss the ideas with each other, which is always great for connecting with conversation. The chapters include topics such as communication, love, romance and intimacy, sexuality, woundedness, his needs and her needs.
I see this as a book to share to help build a deep, special relationship with your loved one.

Fitzysmom4 Stars Out Of 5Review from Rambles of a SAHMFebruary 19, 2015FitzysmomQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I am an absolute creature of habit. I like things to stay the same old, same old. In fact for me to even change my living room around takes a miracle. But the other day I lost my mind and did it. Guess what . . . I love the new look. Same old furniture and area rug, but with a little switch up it all looks new and inviting.
In his new book Romancing Your Better Half Rick Johnson explores some of those same types of things. If you've been in a marriage relationship for awhile you know it is easy to slip into the same old, same old pattern. It may not even be a bad pattern, but why not go for something a little different that will make things seem new and inviting?
This book is written from a male perspective and in my opinion it mostly addresses the husband. But I'm here to tell you that as the wife I gleaned many things from it. I've read quite a few other books of similar subject matter but they were all from the female perspective. It was interesting to read a portion and then discuss it with my husband and get his perspective. Very enlightening!
This isn't another book on how to fix a broken marriage but rather a book on how to take a good marriage to the next level. Chapters seven and eight were worth the price of the book in and of themselves. They are respectively titled His Needs (For Her) and Her Needs (For Him). These two chapters combined allowed my husband and I to talk about subjects that neither of us would have ever thought to talk about.
If you love your spouse and want to go deeper with them get this book and go through it together. Rick's mix of frankness and humor will lead you both into a closer relationship with each other.
I was provided with a book to facilitate my review.

Been married a while? Feel yourself cooling or not as warm to your spouse as you used to be? Dont give up there is still hope. Rick Johnson has done some research and has come up with answers to the things that cool off a marriage and what steps to take to warm it back up again.

I think this is a great resource for all married couples and would be a great gift for friends and family.

MIMomAge: 25-344 Stars Out Of 5Not the best on the subject, but is still very practical and usefulJanuary 26, 2015MIMomAge: 25-34Quality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4When I saw Rick Johnson had written a book about romance and marriage, I jumped at the opportunity to read it, as I had previously read and enjoyed That's My Son.
Romancing Your Better Half: Keeping Intimacy Alive in Your Marriage is filled with good advice, with wisdom on topics ranging from communication, and healing from emotional and spiritual wounds, to the needs of both men and women in a marriage; all the topics have the ultimate goal of building intimacy between the couple. In his book, Rick Johnson constantly reminds the reader to focus on changing yourself (not your spouse) if you want your marriage to change. It also looks at how to overcome the narcissistic, emotional, disposable tendencies our culture and Western society tend to lend towards in order to have thriving marriages, in which love is not just an emotion, marriage is not just cast aside at the earliest sign of conflict and romance is more then just flowers and chocolates.
I don't think this is the best book out there on any of these particular subjects, but it was a quick read, filled with practical tips by an imperfect, albeit redeemed person, who consistently points out his weaknesses, as well as the turbulent upbringings that both he and his wife experienced. At the end of each chapter is a brief summary highlight of each chapter, where the reader will find intimacy-building tips to work on by themselves, as well as ideas for possible conversation pieces with your spouse.

Kristi4 Stars Out Of 5Romancing Your Better Half: Keeping Intimacy Alive in Your MarriageJanuary 23, 2015KristiQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4How's your marriage?
Do you ever put on your spouse's shoes, role reversal at its finest?
How about holding hands as often as possible?
What do your words communicate to him...or her?
Romancing Your Better Half by Rick Johnson* is a new book on the market that digs into these very topics. Communication, romance, intimacy, his needs, her needs - they're all in there. Sexuality, woundedness, and a few additional topics are expanded upon as well.
It took a bit for Rick's words to capture me, but once they did, I was extremely pleased that I had taken the plunge to continue reading. There are many useful nuggets of marital encouragement in this book, and Rick has an uncanny way of speaking to both male and female readers alike. This book's aim appears to have a slight lean toward husbands, but as a wife, I felt quite involved and included. I would certainly recommend it for either spouse.
Rick's writing is very honest and practical. The sidebar tips he has included easily capture and recapture the reader's attention. They were my highlighted words...without the highlighter. I'll revisit them often.
The practical tip section at the end of each chapter was my favorite. It included three or four action steps that could easily be implemented in any marriage. The tips were conveniently located and had a "can do" air about them. They were simple and practical. I can see many couples using these with great success.
If you're married, engaged, or know someone who will be marrying soon, I recommend purchasing this book. It's a strengthener and builder-upper for any marriage. The tips alone make it worth its price, but you'll certainly find additional marital nuggets hidden between the covers.
