Kiss Me Again by Barbara Wilson is much more than just another Christian guide to improving married couples' sex life. I've read several of these books before, and while they are good, none get to the root of the problem. Wilson focuses on why many women have trouble enjoying sex within marriage, even if they did before marriage. Our culture's encouragement of premarital sex has robbed the act of its beauty and place in the marriage bed. Wilson uses science and Scripture to make her point. Women create bonds with every man they have sex with, and those bonds will continue to haunt her, even long after those relationships have ended. I was looking forward to reading this book, but I had no idea the impact it would have on me. It forced me to reconsider previous relationships and in doing so, allowed me to offer forgiveness to those I felt had hurt me. It brought me to tears several nights while reading, but I can feel the healing that God is doing inside of me, because of Wilson's writing. For any women who is struggling with this issue in her marriage, I can't recommend this book enough. It's one of the rare books that can truly change your life.

It seems as if the issues around relationships and especially the loss of them are prevalent. When I signed on to do this review, I thought this book was a romance novel. The title says it all: Kiss Me Again! Then, I read it. Not a novel, but very refreshing and novel in its approach.
Barbara Wilson, author of Kiss Me Again: Restoring Lost Intimacy in Marriage, says that many married women genuinely want to feel more desire toward their husbands. But while sex before marriage was hard to resist, now resisting seems like all they do. In her new book, she shows how couples can suffer for years from the "invisible bonds" of previous relationships without even knowing it. Hidden emotions of distrust, shame, and resentment can sabotage even the most loving marriage.
In the book, Barbara shares her own story of healing and renewed desire, helps women forgive themselves and their husbands for past choices and shows readers how to break free from "invisible bonds" while helping couples reignite the passion that they thought was lost, and all from a biblical perspective.
With assessment tools, write-in exercises, and gentle guidance, Kiss Me Again offers a biblical plan for rekindling the closeness and passion women long for in marriage. Because no past is beyond the reach of God's healing touch.
Just from reading some of the questions, I was opened up in ways I did not expect. I invite you to visit the Random House website and purchase Kiss Me Again if you desire the passion in your marriage that you thought was lost.
