It doesn’t take a genius to realize that relationships today are miles away from what they were decades ago. "Sex Lies & Alibis" is a rather off-putting title for what would otherwise be a brilliant book. Dwain Boswell very accurately puts down into words over 10 years of uncensored observations of where typical relationships are heading, and trust me, things aren’t looking too optimistic. The book sheds insights into the relationship games that majority of us intentionally or unintentionally play, but if we were able to denounce, discern and dodge the game, half the battle is won. After all, if you picked up this book, what you are really interested in is a relationship for the long haul, not some ‘quickie with a sickie’. Dwain Boswell then teaches us a thing or two about setting the records straight right from the start with his A.F.I.E.M. approach. "Sex Lies & Alibis" is heavily seasoned with apt biblical references to further endorse the beautiful journey from acquaintances to marriage.
This is the kind of book that is painfully honest, excruciatingly difficult to achieve (especially dependent on how accepting our society is), but oh-so-good for your mind, body and soul. I enjoyed the sincere approach this book took in addressing the truth in modern relationships. Sometimes it is difficult to recognize that some decisions aren’t lying in the grey area; it is either right or wrong. But society has made it so acceptable that these decisions become the standard. I believe that this book will make women stronger, men more virtuous, and society more discerning of the truth.
