Here is the relationship book that tells it like it REALLY is and gives straight answers to questions like…

What is Romance?

What is Love?

What is Marriage?

Perfect Combination: Seven Key Ingredients to Happily Living & Loving Together is not a book of relationship theory – it’s a practical guide that any couple can use to keep the romance alive and the love flowing. Jamillah & David Lamb tell their story with a sometimes painful, sometimes hilarious, honesty. It is the warm, true-to-life style combined with road-tested advice that makes this book on love, relationships, and marriage so unique.

This book is like sitting down at the kitchen table and having that couple you admire tell you everything: the good, the not-so-good, and what you need to know to triumph in love while still remaining true to who you are. In Perfect Combination, Jamillah & David take you behind the scenes of a relationship put to the test: working side by side 24/7; the day-to-day financial worries that can stress any pair; and an aching, but ultimately happy journey to having their first child.

Why Jamillah & David Wrote This Book… and How It Can Transform Your Love Relationship… It’s all about True Teamwork

Have you ever read a Romance Advice Book by a relationship “expert” and thought, “that sounds good, but how does anyone actually do that?”

Jamillah & David don’t just talk about romance and love, they tell their actual life story so you can apply their hard-won lessons in your own life. As the creative force behind the successful off-Broadway hit, Platanos Y Collard Greens (now in its 9th year running!), Jamillah & David often find themselves being interviewed or talking with audience members. Again and again, they found people curious, almost disbelieving, that a couple could work together and live together and, well… not want to kill each other. Not only do they not want to kill each other, they have a healthy, balanced relationship that fills them both with a sense of love, peace and radiance. Does that sound like a romance movie or romance novel?

Well, it is and it isn’t. If you are looking for a make-believe fantasy, go ahead and see that romance movie or read that romance novel. If you are looking for an honest guidebook that shows you the female and male perspective written in an entertaining back and forth style, then Perfect Combination is for you. Each chapter of the book ends with a love & happiness ‘ingredient’ that anyone can apply to their own relationship. It is also packed with specific actions any couple can use to spice up romance, deepen their love, and increase teamwork.

Does ‘Perfect’ Mean Never Fighting and No Struggles to Overcome?

 No! The ‘perfect’ in Perfect Combination is something Jamillah & David have worked at… and still do. Their hope-filled message for readers is that the strategies they reveal in the book can work for any couple willing to commit to forming their own unique perfection.

When Jamillah & David met, they both understood they had something special. But that didn’t mean they wouldn’t let past relationship patterns threaten what they had. Everyone comes with baggage, personal issues that can derail true love. When they realized that they needed to “Let Your Past, Be Your Past” (the first key ingredient), they began to discover their unique answer to the question, “What is Love?”

Jamillah confesses, “I wanted to prove I was my own woman… so I put every guy I met through the ringer.”  Raised in a strict environment with high expectations, she found trying to “lighten up” a challenge. She worried that any deference to traditional romantic gestures meant she was ceding control to a man. After a time of struggle, Jamillah finally realized it was okay to “Let Him Care About You – What I needed to know about myself was that I could be with someone who cared about me and who wanted to care for me – and it didn’t mean I was weak.” Jamillah is still very much her own woman, but she doesn’t need to be in control 100% of the time to prove it.

David says before Jamillah, his suspicious streak led him to see love as war and he would break-up with girlfriends because he wanted to make sure they didn’t end the relationship first. With Jamillah, he recognized a “kind heart and sweet spirit” and knew that he didn’t want to see this love killed by suspicion. “I was going to have to grow up and grow into feeling what love felt like or I was going to end up by myself.”

It is this willingness to tell the unvarnished truth that makes Perfect Combination such a powerful and inspiring read.

Romance Stories That Teach Lessons Anyone Can Learn

Jamillah & David highlight the important ‘ingredients’ of love, romance and teamwork and put them in an easy-to-understand format. You’ll learn what other romance books don’t tell you:

√ Let Your Past Be Your Past: Don’t Repeat Old Mistakes That Have Doomed Past Love

√  Memories Matter: Don’t Fight Over the Past; Honor That You Both Have Unique Perspectives

√  It’s About Balance: Worry Less About Who Does What and More About Appreciating Each Other Equally

√  Lighten Up!: No Need to Always Be Right. Instead… Be Here. Now. In This Relationship.

√  Help Each Other: Pain Happens. The Difference Is How You Help Each Other Through It

√ Paying Attention Pays Off: Take an Interest in What Your Partner Enjoys

√  Be Grateful: Step Back. Remember What You Do Have. Maybe That Fight Isn’t So Important After

Above all, don’t forget the not-so-secret ingredient: remember how special love is… honor love and be willing to work at it! Every minute spent strengthening love pays off beyond our ability to understand. So watch those romance movies, read those romance novels, but when you want to know how it’s really done, Perfect Combination can show you the way.

What Readers Are Saying:

“This book is so true for so many of us! I had to break out in a SMILE, and nod my head yes, because I could relate on so many levelsLisaJW

Every marriage counselor needs this book in their office. If only we could read this book before any relationship,…There would be no more break ups or divorce. The book is an easy read, although I read it in one sitting I will always refer to it like a relationship “bible“. KA19

“I love this book! I’ve been reading this riding to and from work every day. Only reason I haven’t finished it yet is that I find myself virtually savoring different passages in it. It’s really touching. Who would have thought this couple’s journey would resonate so deeply. Like one of the other reviewers said, I wish I’d come across something like this earlier in life. I found myself stopped in my tracks in pondering some of the points made and elsewhere cheering them on like I was at a basketball game. They’re a truly fortunate couple and we can share in some of it through their book. It’s very readable, eminently enjoyable and I highly recommend it.” ARisingSun

Such a great read. I finished the entire book in one sitting, it was hard to put down. Congratulations on a job well done!!!” Urasia

I truly enjoyed reading Perfect Combination. It not only gave me a new insight on love and relationships, but it inspired me to always put my best foot forward in a relationship and to leave the baggage behind. So often we make the next person pay for the last person’s mistakes instead of embracing a new opportunity to “get it right” this time around. Perfect Combination was a great read. With organic commentary, comedic accents, and a down to earth approach, I found myself unable to put it down.” LLP

I love the honesty dripping from the pages. The pace is great as they open up about their mistakes, discoveries and successes into making it work. I hope they have something else planned for their readers.” Jazzy2tu
