Reviews for Can I Be Honest With You? 

"This book is a FUN read! Amy tells her tales in a delightful style and somehow weaves in what she is learning about herself, about relationships, boundaries, desire, choice, and so much more. Highly recommended! Who would have thought a book of date stories would be a page-turner?" 

  —Betty Martin, Author of The Art of Receiving and Giving: The Wheel of Consent

"A fun and light read! For those dating, you can literally copy and paste some of the 'thanks but no thanks' messages for when there's no inspiration to continue connecting. The author shows the inner dialogue so many of us have when dating but are afraid to be honest. If more of us could take the approach of communicating with kind honesty, I think we would all become much more skilled socially and happier as a result!" 

  —Amy Chan, author of Breakup Bootcamp: The Science of Rewiring Your Heart


"I didn't know what to expect going into this book. What I found was a book that's sometimes funny, sometimes sexy, sometimes profound, and always bitingly honest. There's a lot going on here: tantra, missed opportunities, awkwardness, tenderness, and kissing. Lots of kissing. There's something else here, too: genuine lessons from a life examined, delivered softly, without preachiness or lecturing. I highly recommend this book—it's a joy to read."
