Publisher's summary

A Sunday Times best seller

We’ve all been on promising dates that left us feeling worse in the long run, suffered from breakups we might have mishandled or stayed in relationships that should have worked but didn’t. So what are we missing?

Don’t panic! Toni Tone is here to give the big sister advice we all need: discovering what we want from a connection, flourishing through heartbreak and learning the vital importance of difficult conversations for growth and self-respect. Speaking from a place of experience and empathy, she talks through the value of intuition, asking questions and taking responsibility for the choices we make, offering practical, simple advice to improve any relationship and insight into our own behaviours.

From comfort zones and goal-setting to healthy boundaries and keeping yourself centred, Toni offers the loving, healing and authentic common sense lessons that aren’t so common.

It may just change your life.

Critic reviews

"Relatable and insightful…Tone’s approach could be characterised as crisp but kind, with a writing style that is eminently accessible and inclusive, providing just the kind of big-sisterly feel she originally aspired to."(Caroline Sanderson, The Bookseller)

"This book is scarily accurate. There were so many times where I was adamant that Toni was talking specifically to and about me. I can see identical versions of my friends and I in every single lesson, there were so many points where I literally wanted to screenshot a whole page, send it to my friend and say "LOOOOOOOOOK IT'S YOU!” Spoiler alert: Everyone I know is getting a copy of this book for their next birthday." (Julie Adenuga, Broadcaster and Cultural Curator)

Just what I needed

I have listened to this audiobook twice & it has definitely helped me gain perspective on how to navigate dating as someone figuring it out as I go.

Just What I Needed!

Thank you so much, Toni. This book helped me in each stage of my first relationship in dating. I just broke up with the guy I was dating. It hasn’t been easy, but I’m getting through it one day at a time. This audible book is a 10/10 and beautifully read by the author, Toni.

Wonderful Love Lessons

This book was just what I needed and summed up how I should have approached and handled past relationships. I will be more conscious in future relationships.

Definitely Expected More

I adore Toni and love following her work online; which is why I'm so surprised at the lackluster content of this book. Most of the material is recycled and the audible version was very boring. Despite a valiant effort, I couldn't even finish.
