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.

BEST. BOOK. EVER.

It’s amazing. Her voice is lovely to listen to. Her story is sad but it keeps you intrigued and has a happy ending. It amazes me how strong she was to go through this and then to put it all on paper. This book is a /MUST/. I have listened to it 4 times now

Heartbreaking Truths

This book, a cautionary tale, is a heartbreaking story. It’s a long journey of hurt and pain that goes to show sometimes we don’t know exactly who we are letting into our lives. Beautifully and emotionally read by the person who lived this, A Sucky Love Story is a book everyone should read; to caution those who are entering into new relationships or friendships or to let you know that you’re not alone in your fears and worries.

Much recommendation.

Strength, and the love of a Mother.

This story will help people. Thank you Britanni for being so brave and telling your truth.

I listened to this book in one day. I couldn't 'put it down'.

This book is a reminder to not only listen to your instincts, but to also be kind. You don't always know what goes on behind closed doors..

This story is crazy!
I was expecting more of a domestic hands on situation but the mental trauma that she has suffered is just as bad mental physical emotional trauma is all so messed up and so hard to overcome I am so glad that this story is finally out and literally listened to this book all day I’m proud of Brittani and so happy her and Rex are ok I’ve been through this in a different way but it takes the strongest of women do over come what she has. Nothing but good from now on and I hope that in the end he gets his just deserves

Tear Jerking.

I’ve been following Brittani for 10 year now. I’ve watched her grow as an actor through my computer screen. I saw the relationship she describes in this memoir pan out over YouTube - it is pertinent to remember that people only express the “good” things online and that no one knows what is going on behind closed doors. It is so warming to finally understand what she went through. I’ve grown up with Brittani. Now she can be free.

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.

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!

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!

Simply astonishing!

For the first 12 chapters, it is a bit dull. You question why Brittani mentions all these little moments that seem to have no relevance. But as soon as you get to chapter 13, everything takes a turn. Everything adds up, this is the craziest story I have ever read and the fact that it is a true story is absolutely heart wrenching. If like me, you are on the first half of the book and are getting a bit bored, PLEASE continue to read until the end. Everything adds up and makes sense. A fantastic read written by an inspirational survivor!

Amazing!

What an amazing book! So happy to finally know what happened to Brittani and she couldn’t have been more detailed in describing her horrible and crush story of survival from Milosz. This book should urge anyone in an abusive relationship to find the strength within themselves to power on and get to safety and I know that is all she hopes to provide for anyone in need and now all of her loyal fans are fully aware even more so than before of how strong and brilliant Brittani truly is.
