Uncovered: Revealing the Secrets of a Sexy Marriage by Susie Davis


In Uncovered, author and radio talk-show host Susie Davis offers wives a vantage point into their marriage that they’ve never had before: through the eyes of their husbands.

“I want women to understand what their husbands are really thinking and begin to understand what he really needs from her,” Davis says. “When you read these authentic testimonies, where husbands share what’s really on their hearts about their marriages, you start to see your husband in a different light and revolutionize your marriage.”

That’s the premise she offers in her latest book, Uncovered: Revealing the Secrets of a Sexy Marriage, where she pinpoints how wives can cultivate closer relationships with their spouses and understand their husbands’ needs.

But Davis knew that what would make these concepts resonate with readers was to hear what real men had to say on the subjects, ranging from quality sex and intimacy to how often they’d like to hear encouragements from their wives. So she formed a focus group of husbands—from construction workers to CEOs and even pastors, who all who have been married for at least ten years in Christ-centered marriages—and gathered their honest responses on these subjects and more.

Bolstered with biblical wisdom, practical sense and a bit of feminine charm, Davis helps wives understand what their husbands really want out of their marriage and what matters most to them, ranging from sex to finances to having fun together.

Readers will learn to:
o Rediscover the “red hot mama” within herself and a sexy self-confidence about her body
o Understand the powerful influence she has over her man—to do good or harm
o Create a craving for sexual intimacy, even when life gets busy
o Guard against materialism and the burden it can put on a marriage
o Invite laughter and fun into your marriage, like when you were first dating
o Communicate with their husbands in new ways
o Discover the mission statement for their marriage

“What most often stands in the way of sexual intimacy with your wife?”
“How do you feel when your wife corrects you?”
“What causes the most financial stress in your marriage?”
Find out how real husbands answered these questions and more in Uncovered.

Here is my review of this terrific marriage enhancer:

First of all, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Susie Davis and her publisher for sending me a copy of "Uncovered" to review for them. I have always been grateful for this generosity, and I am trying to improve at being consistent in taking the time to thank these wonderfully giving individuals in a public forum. I really appreciate your time, effort and expense in making a reviewer copy available to me.

“Uncovered: Revealing the Secrets of a Sexy Marriage” by Susie Davis is not your typical Christian self-help book on marriage relationships. This is a witty, insightful, humbling and hysterical read that cannot help but change how you see your man and your marriage. The Male Room was a particularly educational, inspirational and enjoyable part of each chapter as men who love their wives answer questions based on the content of the chapter. In fact, I believe I got more out of reading the husband’s answers to these questions than I did answering the questions intended for me at the end.

I can’t wait to have my husband read parts of this book and corroborate what these other men have said and give me insight on what we’re doing right and where we need to do some work. I will also say that this might become part of the gift that I give for either wedding or anniversary celebrations! What an awesome book that can lead to some incredible discussion.
