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.

    This is by far one of my favorite non fiction books. It’s insane that this is true and it very captivating. I finished it less than 48 hours 😂 I applaud the author for staying strong for herself and her son!

  • Amazing.

    By makdenwat
    Although my heart breaks that Brittani had to go through these things... this book is absolutely amazing! I finished it in just a few days.. (could have been one day but ya know, mom life.) I’ve been in a verbally and mentally abusive relationship and this book somehow made me feel like I am not alone. Brittani is my biggest inspiration. I will be reading this all over again!
  • Never felt more connected to someone

    By CJcookie10
    I have been wanting to read this book for months and I’m so bummed it’s over. I absolutely loved it. It made me feel like I’m not alone. And that other people chose to make the same decision I did when I was in my abusive relationship. And there’s nothing wrong with that. I hope this book helps other people either get out of their abusive relationships or feel connected and not alone with their past ones. It’s always so comforting to me to know that I’m not alone in how I feel or felt and that there are other people out there too struggling with the same thing.
  • Too Rambl-y

    By Kaileag
    It was okay for a light read. It got really off point and it seemed like she would get really rambl-y at certain parts. I often caught myself skipping a few pages and not really feeling like I missed much at all.
  • So interesting!!

    By gullieml
    I was watching Shane’s most recent YouTube video and started hearing Brittani’s summary of what all happened and I instantly knew I had to go buy this book so I could figure out the rest of the details. I literally have never read a book so fast, I bought it and read it all in 5 and a half hours... 12/10 would recommend, I honestly just couldn’t bring myself to put it down!!
  • Outstanding

    By jlope416
    What a beautiful and strong woman! The things she went through were terrible, and yet she is coming out the other side the same girl that we always saw on camera. I applaud her bravery, and look forward to anything else that she may write. As this is so well written, and I have almost no questions at the end of it. She is wonderful beyond words.
  • The best book I’ve ever read

    By mommyofboys2
    I don’t normally read books like this. But I’ve been following her on YouTube for a long time. I am going to be honest I unsubscribed because I did not like the guy she got into a relationship with. Suddenly a video popped up on my recommended. It was her introducing her book. And I realized that was something really up so i subscribed again. I watched all the videos I had missed. Since her announcing her pregnancy and engagement. And oh my god.... so I had to get this book and read about what happened. I’m so happy I did. This book was raw, beautiful and it drew me in. Honestly I couldn’t put it down. Took me 2 days to read it. I am going to read it again.
