The Vixen Manual: How to Find, Seduce and Keep the Man You Want

The Vixen Manual: How to Find, Seduce & Keep the Man You Want - Karrine Steffans What an interesting book to win in a Goodreads giveaway. Full disclaimer – I have already found my man and I am very happy with him, but I was curious if there was anything else I should be doing.The Vixen Manual is a How to Guide. It is divided into 5 sections: Being Single, How to Attract Him, How to Engage Him, How to Release Him, and Maybe It’s You. Each chapter is easy to read, with important information highlighted in pink, little boxes with “Vixen Tips,” and a bright pink chapter recap, outlining the most important points. The book has many illustrations and they are not suitable for work/children in the room. While there are some valid tips in the book that are based on the author’s experience, I had some difficulty with a few things. First of all, what is it with the picture of “porn pussy” on page 18? That alone, made me want to throw the book across the room. I checked the book and there was no medical reference for this condition (which is a relief!).I was scratching my head when I read the advice for dating and the single mom. OK, I understand that when you are dating, the child should not see the date until there is a ring on your finger. I get that. I don’t get why you would not want your child to know that there is a sitter in the house. What happens if the child wakes up? And make your sitter your friend? You’re lucky if you find a sitter, let alone make her your friend.There was some funny advice for dealing with rejection that basically involved spending a lot of money to upgrade yourself. Yes, it will make you feel great. Keep in mind that the credit card bills will come in and if you can’t pay the bills, you’ll feel worse.All my beefs aside, I am sure that some people will be entertained by this manual. I’ll be passing it on to a single girl I know. I hope she enjoys it. As for me, I'm going to keep doing what I am doing. My husband seems very happy. There's something to be said about reading a lot of romance, paranormal romance, and urban fantasy.
