As a man it is difficult to navigate a relationship. Most books about love and relationships written by men are about attracting many women and being a narcissist. It was very insightful to read about relationship and love from a Women’s perspective. It was even more than that, Riana Milne has basically created a guide on how to be a human being, how to love yourself, how to be a happy person and then from there you will be able to have positive and loving relationships. I think this is a great book for anyone that is interested in living a more fulfilling and real life with respectful and loving relationships.

When I started reading this book, I came in with the expectation of hope and encouragement. It only furthered my belief when I read a personal note from the author at the beginning, "Partial proceeds from this book will go to various women's empowerment programs". Being a young female myself, that really hit home for me. So, starting off this review I'd like to say a simple thank you to the author for that. I dove into the intro of this book with so much anticipation, and I can say I definitely wasn't let down. Right away, Riana addresses her audience with kindness.It's a welcoming introduction allowing readers to not only see that this book was genuinely written with the notion of helping somebody, but it also gives the reader the opportunity to immediately feel that it was written under that intention. Riana addresses the audience as female or male, single or married, and gay or straight - which for me being a non heterosexual female, it makes me feel at home. That's only the first few pages in. What a way to start a book! As I go through the lines of this book I am in awe over the detail within it. You can actually imagine what you're reading, and I love that. The author makes it personal and relatable for you. There is education between the pages of this book. It's something I would recommend anyone wanting to feel a little encouraged and greatly supported to read. I was told I would love this author's work, and I'm happy to say I wasn't let down.

I couldn't put this book down! Finally, an author put into one book all the information I needed to find an emotional healthy partner. Riana Milne explains that although written "towards the female gender" the information is the same for men - and she is correct. I learned to so much that really helped me from costly mistakes - emotionally and financially - in finding the right woman. The first part of the book helped me to examine if I was doing anything toxic to hurt the relationships - and if I was really being a great partner. It taught me so much - that I decided to hire her as my Life & Love Coach - which was an incredible investment in changing my life! I now have a fabulous partner that I plan to marry. I went from depressed and dating the wrong types of women - to incredibly happy, refocused on myself (lost 30 lbs in 2 months!) and my career is booming - all since working with RIana and reading how to have a happy relationship which DOES lead to a happy life! I have bought several copies for my guy friends, who are also in the process of doing some heavy soul searching and changing - so that they can have successful relationships too. Also, when I finished the LOVE book, I went and bought Riana Milne's book, LIVE Beyond Your Dreams - from fear and doubt to personal Power, Purpose and Success. I have never been so focused for myself, and my lady. Taking care of myself, and her, I feel like the man I knew I could be - and very proud of all I have accomplished, in such little time. Thank you Riana for your incredible books, your amazing Life & Love coaching, and for you inspiring and changing my life completely ! Johnny B

This 424-page relationship book is amazing and unique. I'm a male reader in my late 40's and it was exactly the book I needed after I discovered my wife was cheating. If you are struggling from a toxic or cheating partner, you might start questioning if it is really right to stay or you need to leave the relationship. If you want to get love right next time, you need to learn the many warning signs of risky and complicated personality types that you best avoid. It really helped me to learn the personal changes needed to heal and regain my confidence as well as reinvent myself, thus attracting an emotionally healthy partner.  Riana Milne shares the ultimate keys that can help you find the most satisfying and fulfilling love relationship. What an awesome book!

No one has ever had a perfect relationship in life, there are always imperfections to some degree.  Then there are those who are always deprived of their proper share of love and it keeps getting worse.  Riana Milne diggs deep into this realm in “Love Beyond Your Dreams.” This coercive  guide recognizes that certain chemistries exist because of already defined patterns that can come forth from many situations, often found due to some unhealthy relationship in a family.  No matter the cause, the result is often the same.  Repeated relationship with noxious partner is always harmful in life.  Milnes explains the reasons and methods with compassion and kindness.  She seems to be the one who has already been there through the ups and downs of relationships and yet finding a way out. The best part was the acknowledgement that sometimes it is better to be alone.  Keeping at bay the element of fear is very important. When you feel like that you are ready to start a fresh relationship, then you must strive for it. A very good literary work.

Going into a relationship with someone can be an exciting experience, it can be a wonderful thing when things go right. But not everyone is made equal, sometimes it is best to spot the markers of someone that is in it for selfish reasons. Love, Beyond your Dreams dives into this idea, that to love and lose is better to not love at all, but that there are ways to love with confidence, knowing your in the relationship with someone that has the right interests at heart.  Readers of John, M, Gottman will really appreciate the time and effort that Riana Milne has put into putting together such a comprehensive and detailed read. A lot of attention has been put into helping people identify toxic personalities before they have become too big a problem to handle on our own, a valuable and important concept that many people would wish they had known before they were swept up in the fanfare of new adventures.  There are times in our lives that we meet someone that really resonates, we feel like a team. Moments in time that we feel like  this is what life is about, that a moment could not get any better. Before you know it your in a deep lasting bond with a toxic personality. If there is one thing I could part with this book on is that for me, going from two great relationships to a third greater one,   many of the techniques and tips in this work has become a part of my life, a guardian angel of sorts, a companion.

I do not know a single person that has not had a bad relationship at one point or another, few of us can reach any sort of maturity without feeling some degree of heartache.  Then there are those that always seem to be on the poor end of love, who find themselves in a relationship that hurts much more than it helps – and it happens again and again.  Moments when you ask, “Why do I keep falling for these kinds of partners?” I have, too often.   Riana Milne delves deep into this territory in “Love Beyond Your Dreams.” This compelling and transformative guide recognizes that certain attractions exist because of set patterns that can arise from many situations, but often they are found because of some sort dysfunctional family pattern.  No matter the cause, the result is often the same.  Repeated relationships with toxic partners.   It’s not healthy – and this book can guide those who are ready to move on, to find a better way.   Milnes discusses reasons and methods with compassion and gentleness.  She has an air of someone who has been there, done that – writing in a tone that draws you in and inspires trust in what she says, and trust that you too – can overcome and finally find a way out of the repetitive negativity and into a new love and life, if you want a new love that is.  One of the best and most refreshing parts of this heartfelt book was the acknowledgement that sometimes it is better to be alone.  Stripping away the fear and stigma associated with this is vital, if you can’t be happy with yourself, you can’t be happy with someone else.  If and when you are ready to try dating again, you can do so confident, loving yourself and understanding your own guideline and limitations.

This is a long book, but well worth a woman’s time.  There are two areas this book covers that you won’t find in many “relationship” books.  One is a detailed description of the signs of a toxic person.  The other is practical advice on steps to take to protect yourself early in dating. Toxic people come in many different “flavors” and Milne has seen them all in her work as a counselor. To help the non-professional identify people who might become problems, lists are provided so a reader can recognize behaviors that are not normal.  This is so important, because people who grew up in homes with a toxic person (e.g. a narcissist, a Mother Hater, or an Adult Child of Alcoholics) probably don’t know what a normal relationship should look like.  Such a person could read one of the lists and think, “Oh! it’s not normal for my boyfriend to do X or Z.” The practical advice is quite detailed and includes such common sense practices as protecting your home by meeting dates outside your home until you are in a real relationship. Not responding to late-night text messages is another tip.  Readers are assured that a man who really wants a relationship with them will keep up the pursuit.  Your safeguards protect you and help separate the wheat from the chaff.  I recommend this book to women of all ages.  The young can learn to keep themselves safer by establishing the healthy boundaries and avoiding unhealthy relationships in the first place. Older women may need information on safely leaving an abusive relationship (don’t do it without help) or resources for helping friends and relatives. I received a free review copy of Love Beyond Your Dreams from the author for my review.

I have been dealing with a toxic relationship for a while, all the while blaming myself and not knowing what to do. This book finally gave me a map and understanding of where I am in my life right now and how to break free from the harmful influence of the toxic relationship in my life. I would recommend this book to everyone who thinks their life can be better if they know how to manage and live without burden that is keeping them down. It offers many useful information and methods one can apply to move forward. Highly recommended.

If only I’d had this book when I was younger! It is everything you learn (or not) painfully and slowly through relationships as you grow up. I was really lucky that the emotionally manipulative guy I was hooked on, also turned out to have a short attention span and moved on; I often wonder how long I would have been with him if he hadn’t have left of his own accord. This book shows you how to move on, how to be yourself and how to avoid trouble in the future. I was particularly taken by the ‘how to spot a toxic person’ section, it’s made me look at people differently, consider their actions and behaviour, and even rethink some of my own! I reckon I’m going to end up buying this for at least 3 of my single friends for Christmas so they can make better decisions and hopefully find the healthy relationship they deserve.

Its so refreshing to find a book that deals with such an important topic with both insight and practical tools for real change. Moving away from Toxic relationships is crucial for anyone to find real happiness in love. Riana clearly explains why this cycle occurs and gives us hope on how to end it forever. Her message is one that teaches and inspires, leading to a happier, healthier life and the kind of relationships where we can truly find joy. I recommend both men AND women read this book. Its is wonderful gift for young adults as well to evaluate their sense of worth and take a hard look at their relationships as well. Truly a gift!

Everyone deserves the chance of having a happy and passionate relationship. I felt like I deserved this in my life, so I decided to buy a copy of this book. The author, Riana Milne, really knows what she is talking about. She has an MA in Applied Clinical & Counseling Psychology, so she is experienced in the field with her educational background along with the fact that she has taught for over 30 years. There are a lot of self-help and relationship books out there, but not everyone can write something that is beneficial like Milne has done with this book. Through this book, she has helped me to believe in love again. After coming out of a toxic marriage, I thought that I would never be able to rebuild my life. This book has helped me to understand my patterns and to prevent them from happening in the future. I am starting the process of rebuilding my life and I believe that I will find someone special. This is a great book that everyone should read!

This book is amazing. It covers so many aspects of relationships and I learned so much from it. We have all had our hearts broken and have  all faced that pain. I asked myself too many times "what is wrong with me?" and the fact is I am a giver and trust too easily. I always wanted to hang onto love and let a lot of things slide. That is until now. This book opened my eyes and my heart and showed me how to deal with all  of my questions. It covers everything possibly needed to understand relationships and why they fail, and why they succeed. It is very well written and very easy to read. It is quite clear that Riana Mine is a brilliant counselor and her compassion and depth of caring is so welcomed. She is blessed with a wonderful gift of helping people and opening doors to happy, healthy relationships. And isn't that what we are all seeking. I highly recommend this book and I thank Riana for the hope and inspiration I received from this book.

What a deep and powerful guide to relationships and how to make them work. I have read several books on this subject and this book is the best by far. It is complete and comprehensive and left me with no questions. I learned how to look at men and my ideas of what love really is.  It addresses every issue regarding relationships and helped me define what kind of man I have been attracted to. It empowered me and built my self esteem up and showed me I am not alone in the things I feel inside. It is done in a wonderful format; each chapter is clear and concise. I love the honesty and caring ability from this author. She has been in my shoes and she truly inspired me. I can not thank her enough for her expertise and I would love to see more of her work. I strongly recommend this book. It will give you the freedom to find the one who is meant to hold your heart.

Love Beyond Your Dreams. Sounds lovely. But wait. This is no flowery feel good story. This book is about Man Trouble: how to spot it, stop it, and move beyond it.  There’s a lot here. Riana Milne is a clinical psychologist and relationship coach. Based on my reading and experience, I can tell she’s done her homework. The fruit of that labor is in this book. Love Beyond Your Dreams tells you how to recognize trouble when you’re in it and how to not get in it while dating, how to get out when the situation is hopeless, and how to examine your own life to see why you keep getting hurt. Milne consults many schools of thought on building a healthy relationship from famous sources like Wayne Dyer, Greg ”He’s just not that into you” Behrendt, Deepak Chopra, Janet Woititz (ACoA pioneer), Pia Mellody, Barbara DeAngelis, and so many more. She’s culled many sources to present a sort of “one-stop shopping” guide to getting you out of that crappy relationship, keeping you out of another one, and guiding you through changing yourself from the inside out to finally find the love beyond your dreams. This book is very dense in terms of the amount of information, and every sentence provokes thought in a reader who really wants to review their history and change their life. She answers many questions without mincing her words or using psychobabbly terms. And because this book is so dense, I wouldn’t recommend reading it through from cover to cover and putting it on the shelf. It’s a great reference guide for every stage of a relationship, from figuring out what’s wrong with the current crappy one, how to get free of it, how to not get into another one, and how to go about finding someone different from all your previous losers and users.  For those of us who came from alcoholic/dysfunctional backgrounds (the vast majority of us), learning to love ourselves is a very tall order. It sounds cliché, if not downright ridiculous, but it’s far more than a notion and requires a lot of self-examination and work to change old patterns of behavior. This book would be a useful guide for the journey. I’m hanging onto mine and I’ll refer to it often while I try to find the man I set my heart on.  I did, however, take a few stars off for a couple of problems I found with the book. One problem is the lack of an index. Every good reference book needs a complete index. This book doesn’t have one. I mean, how am I supposed to put my finger on those list of warning signs or characteristics when I come home from a date feeling queasy and it wasn’t the shrimp? I need to know what to look for when I need it, not later when it’s too late. An index would help tremendously. Also, the language is very gender-specific. It reads like “woman good, man bad” and that’s just not the case. “The bad guy” isn’t always a guy and men suffer in crappy, dysfunctional relationships, too, as quiet as it’s kept. Men need to learn how to love themselves, too. If not, where are we supposed to find all these men beyond our dreams?

Love Beyond Your Dreams opened my eyes. I would have left my ex sooner if I had the information in this book. At least now I know the type of marriage I wanted was a healthy one. And I understand why my ex did not want to go to marriage counseling. Besides identifying unhealthy partners the book gives suggestions on how to heal from a toxic relationship. You also learn about how to find a person to have a healthy relationship with.
