Description

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 thirty-one-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.

    Brittani was one of the first Youtubers I watched when I discovered Youtube her S.O.S videos and comedic sketches never failed to entertain me. When she announced that she was pregnant I was so happy and excited for her, much like her other many fans and friends. Later she announced that she had experienced some horrible sercumstances and would inform her eager peers and fans about it through a book. This book is so incredible, Brittani’s story has paved the way for future and current survivors. Please go read this book and take advice and warning from it. The read is worth it and essential.
  • Amazing💘💘

    As a survivor of domestic violence and as a feminist, I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Read this book. Share this story. Look for these signs in your relationships. The way that Brittani wrote this book and chose to tell her story was so moving and powerful. Let us all use this book as a warning of what can happen when we are blinded by love when someone is manipulating us. A cautionary tale.

    Very good book, I only happened to see this. I had no idea who author was. I couldn’t put it down. What a story! What a survivor! So I started to watch some blogs or vlogs. Brittani is such an upbeat positive person. Fun, and interesting. Good luck with your book and career. You’re a star and a beacon of light to others. Thanks for sharing! P.S. this book has mostly great reviews. The few that gave it less than good ratings- it’s painfully obvious that they’re jealous and envious of Brittani. Anyone can see by their review. I’ve shown these reviews to others who agree. So obvious in their jealousy.

    I rewatched videos from 2017 while reading this book and I couldn’t help but let tears flow and feel helpless. Brittani, you are so strong, you a warrior, a goddess, a strong mother. To go through y’all that and tell your story with others is brave. But it’s fitting to who you are, a brave woman, a brave mother. You & Rex deserve happiness & I’m so glad you are finding your way to be 100% again.
  • Amazing story, must read

    BLT style of writing makes it as if she’s telling you the story in person and she’s talking directly to you. The book was an easy read and always kept me wanting more at the end of each chapter.
  • I’m speechless.

    As a teenager (a few years ago) I watched Brittani’s YouTube videos. So funny and charismatic, no wonder she has so many subscribers. Until recently, I started seeing pictures of her book on Instagram and I was curious. I went on YouTube and sure enough, Brittani’s life had dramatically changed. After not watching her videos for so long, I was confused. I decided to purchase a digital copy of her book because I listened to a preview of her audible book. I was so hooked and immediately started reading. I have never cried this much while reading a book or even finishing a book in such a short amount of time. This book will make you feel many things and I truly recommend it. My biggest take away after reading this book, Brittani you are so strong and I am so proud of you. Please read this book.
