"I've read all of Sandra LaMorgese's blogs and they -- like this book -- will inspire women of all ages. I especially dare any woman over the age of 40 to read this book and not feel emboldened and eager to try a new challenge -- asap! Sandra is living proof that you can do anything you want, at any age, and that you can follow your passion no matter what it is. Sandra's journey through life will challenge all your assumptions about middle-aged or 'older' women. Her sexual evolution will make you want to embark on your OWN sexual evolution. This is definitely a must-read, inspiring, entertaining and honest look at womanhood, aging and sexuality." -- Shelley Emling, Senior Editor, Huff/Post50 "I feel like this book was really empowering for me....I also loved the message of being authentic and striving for your own happiness in life. I love it. I enjoyed it and thus am giving it a four star rating and recommending it! I have recently been reading this authors blog as well and I find it to be enlightening and helpful. I am grateful for having received the chance to read this book! Ms Nose In A Book "Quite possibly one of the most revolutionary memoirs you'll ever read." "Sandra LaMorgese's Switch: Time for a Change is different. Aside from the fact that I really like Sandra, her story about how she how she changed her life post-divorce in her early to mid-50's, especially when it came to dating, sex and sexuality, is personal, powerful and honest, and not just the parts in which she decided to become a Dominatrix at 55. Aside from getting an inside look into her training and sessions at a Manhattan BSDM dungeon, Sandra's midlife sexual evolution is more than just about spanking, knife play and humiliating grown-ass masters of the universe. It was her way out of getting pummeled by a financial-crushing business blow. It was also part of discovering her sexual side and how it built her confidence in all aspects of her life, including dating. It's a very thoughtful, mindful, intelligent and very open-minded memoir. I have no doubt that you'll find Sandra the kind of person you'd want to be with or be like." Bobbie Morgan, A Good Woman's Dirty Mind "Based on today's literary climate (Shades of Gray) this is very marketable material. It is Gray from a woman's perspective. This would appeal to both a male and female audience. Well written. Presented properly as a publisher's pitch! I may have to get a date tonight. LOL" Katherine Phelps, Publisher, Viva Internationale Women's Magazine
