Publisher's Summary

Women: gain control and confidence in your love lives and find the relationship you want with this modern, life-changing guide from the certified sex educator, intimacy expert, and YouTube personality.

For younger generations, dating is a complicated mystery. Apps like Tinder and Bumble are supposed to foster connection but instead serve as a reminder of how painfully single we are. 

Certified sexologist and intimacy coach Shan Boodram - the most sought-after sex educator on the internet - is about to change all that. In this essential how-to guide, she addresses the realities of life today - when the rules of love and attraction are fluid - and teaches a group of young women how to become master daters in just 60 days.

It starts with you. Shan makes clear that love and self-discovery go hand in hand - your dating life is just as much about you as it is about other people. She challenges you to look inside yourself for what you want out of a partner, a relationship, and, most important, yourself. Once you figure out what you want from dating, she shows you exactly how to get it. The Game of Desire empowers you to take the lead, learn your strengths, and identify and correct your weaknesses, all the while getting inspired watching a group of women learn how to succeed in today’s dating pool.

While many books tell women why they can’t get a date, Shan teaches you the skills and techniques necessary to take charge in today’s competitive and often confusing dating scene, providing the tools essential to attract - and retain - the partner(s) you want. From learning love languages to debunking dating myths, she helps women build knowledge and confidence. 

Featuring conversational case studies, comprehensive facts about the psychology of sex and romance, and expert insight into sex culture, and written with her trademark humor and charm, The Game of Desire is a must for all of Shan’s fans and for every woman struggling to feel loved and desired.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Beyond what I expected

I was super excited when Shannon released this book as I am going through self discovery. This book has helped me to discover more about myself and look past my fear of re-entering the dating world with a new found confidence.I am definitely going to be listening to this book again and I am also going to get a hard copy for my book collection. Thank you Shan for this beautiful collection of work as it has empowered me in a way that I don’t even understand myself.

I applaud you!

Shannon Boodram. Girl. This book was everything and more! I am a 25yo married female and found this book to be very informative and helpful. No, I did not read this book for tips on how to date, instead it was to support a person who I look up to when it comes to “self help”. In turn, I benefited greatly. My takeaways were that of how to get what I want out of any relationship, be it business or personal friendships. Sometimes we may settle for things that enter our lives but this book taught me many ways of actually knowing myself first in order to go after what I deserve! Why clunk around waiting for your boss to notice you for a promotion?! Instead, put yourself out there, become someone they want more of and can’t be without! How you ask? READ THIS BOOK! All in all this book is a great confidence builder - start with your mind, then control the rest. Thank you, Shan!

This book couldn't have been any better!

I initially downloaded this book only because I support Shan and absolutely believe in all of her work. I didn't think I would benefit from this book because its centered towards assisting the single community but I was wayyyy wrong. All the while hearing the audiobook, I couldn't help but to think of how many of my close single friends (who struggle in the dating scene) could benefit from this book AND it did actually give me perspective and self realization to make me a better me (AKA how self awareness and thinking things thoroughly can make relationships stronger). It's hard to explain but the only advice I can give is to read this book! I absolutely loved all of Shan's direction, tips, and the volunteers (Maya, Deshawn, Priscilla, Courtney and Stephanie) were a perfect mix of people that I believe many will be able to relate to.

Finally applicable advice for modern day dating!

Shan Boodram did an awesome job articulating dating strategies that anyone can use. This book stands apart from the rest because the author didn’t just state dating facts and research studies, she used real people to test these theories in real social settings. Following each participants’ journey through the program and hearing about their struggles, failures, and successes made the book so relatable. I honestly cannot wait to go out and try out some of the techniques. I would recommend this book to anyone in the dating world looking to make meaningful connections!

Lovin’ it

Only on the second chapter but it’s so enjoyable to listen to while I do my morning runs. Kind of like I got a bestie just talking to me, so relatable, humorous and insightful.

Excellent!! I was hooked from the beginning!

I pre-ordered a physical copy of this book but couldn't wait, so I also pre-ordered audiobook and got it a day sooner! Thank God I did; the addition of Shan's narration makes the content even better. What an intriguing, yet informative read. I finished the audiobook in ONE DAY! And I can't wait to go back through and highlight the mess out of my physical copy. I learned so much and was entertained the whole time. 100% recommend!

Effortless Listen!

I could listen to Shannon talk all day. I can picture everything she is saying and I was on my toes waiting to hear what happen on every date as if I was apart of the program. I loved listening to see if the different tips and tricks worked when they went out and it was just awesome. You won’t regret it!
