Publisher's Summary

What if falling in love meant almost losing everything?

Where does a moderately popular internet star who never leaves her house look for potential suitors? Online. Tinder, Bumble, Match.com, OkCupid - I tried them all. My 31-year-old self clicked and swiped her little heart out, leading to more dates than I could count, and more disappointment than I was prepared for.

Maybe you can relate. Maybe you know all too well the perils of modern dating. But let’s say, eventually, you meet someone. You think to yourself, “Wow, they’re perfect! Take me off the market, put a ring on it, knock me up, the whole enchilada, because they are ‘the one.’” Let’s also say that they “feel the same way” about you. Your life starts to make sense! All the pain, heartbreak, and frustration from past failed relationships was worth it. Slow clap.

That’s how I felt about Milos. He was from Europe, a doctor, wealthy, athletic. He had an accent and a dog. Milos was textbook marriage material. For him it was “love at first sight”, but for me, it was “anxiety on every date”. Something was telling me to run - but for two years, the only running I did was straight into his arms.

If only I would have listened. This isn’t a love story. It’s my story of survival.

Heart wrenching story of true strength

This story was something I’ve been waiting to listen to as a follower online. What I wasn’t expecting was the hard truth, the absolutely devastating words that she put out there and the nerve of one man to use women like that. I am incredibly thankful she had the courage to share her story so other in situations such as these may someday have the courage to get out. Huge respect for this author and her new memoir

Heartbreaking

This is truly a well written cautionary tale that was both enthralling and almost unbelievable. Brittani is strong and brave for having gone through what she did and I'm sure Rex will be forever grateful for his amazing mother.

Just wow

I have never been in a serious relationship of my own so I didn’t know if I could relate to this book, but after listening to it, I couldn’t stop crying. It felt like it was me who went through it all. I couldn’t stop listening. Good book.

Heartbreaking story

I can't believe this is real. The strength Brittani showed is amazing. I really thought she was able to show her personality and humour in what was a horrendous tale. Its capivating and hard to not listen all the way through. I definitely think everyone should listen or read this book.

beautiful work

I've watched Brittani on YouTube for a long time and seeing her grow as a person and then take this journey as a mother. you'd never know all of this was happening to her. she has such incredible grace and poise in every thing she's done and this book is no exception. it makes the reality of domestic violence a lot more relatable and it shows that it doesn't have a template or a set of rules. It's awful but it's in how you handle it. she's a gem and this book is beautiful. It's honest and a reflection of her as a person. overall beautiful work.

Entertaining and insightful!

I loved that this story was told as if we were living it with Brittani. Telling it in this way makes it easy for people who haven’t been in abusive relationships to understand how so many women find themselves falling for these people and stuck in the abusive cycle. I was also conned by my first love, not to the this extreme but women need to be more aware to protect themselves! This is an entertaining story and good audiobook!

Heart break. Raw. Real. A love story to her son!

I’ve been watching Brittani since I was 13 and remember when this was happening to her real time. I knew something was up and knew she would tell it when the time was right. Everyone must read this! It’s raw and from the heart. She is so real and was able to over come such a heart ache. You see her love she has for her son and what she had to do to protect him at all cost! Just simply amazing!

Listened to the entire book in 9 hours. Amazing. Such a strong woman to have gone through all this and come out on the other side! I wish Brittani and her family nothing but the best, she deserves it!

Seemed like a 15 year old girl wrote this

Based on the authors videos concerning the book I was expecting a drastically different story than the one written. While I give the author immense credit for going through this situation I do not belive it was written well. The narration was very cringeworthy there was no need to fake the accents that was just...bad. It made the whole book hard to get through in all honesty. Overall while I do not think domestic violence is right at all this book was not a very good portrayal of overcoming a very intense and difficult situation. It seemed cheesy and touched too lightly on the very serious topics it was trying to get across. If I could give 0 stars I would have.

Definitely “sucky”

It’s really unfortunate that she narrated this entire story on her own and still sounded uninterested. I found myself annoyed with her for being almost childlike when talking about sex and her naivety when it came to MANY perfectly normal adult topics. Overall, yes, the dude was a scumbag and yes I’m glad her and the baby are safe and happy but the story wasn’t put together well. I feel a little disappointed.

It felt like a movie

Man, do I feel bad for Brittanni and her kid... listening to this felt like watching a mafia movie. Everything was picture perfect until things started to crumble. Congrats to Brittani for making the narrative so interesting, great read!

Brittani's abusive relationship with a con artist

I first watched Brittani's videos in 2007. I've since lost touch with her content until a video announcing her pregnancy and engagement was suggested to me by youtube. And then, two years later, I hear she released a book !
Well, turns out the fiance was a con artist ! I will not spoil the details of the emotional abuse she went through, I will let you read it for yourselves. It is not the best written book, but it is easy to listen to.
I felt bad for Brittani, she reminded of a sweet, well intentionned, hopeful friend of mine who always falls for the wrong guys.
She does come off as naive but I try not to judge her too harshly. As they say : "Love makes us blind".
I am glad Brittani is doing better. I truly hope she works on her self-esteem and surrounds herself with positive people and professionnal help, especially since she had a child with said con artist.
