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.
A Sucky Love Story: Overcoming Unhappily Ever After book summary coming soon..
I absolutely loved this book. I read a ton of books and usually fiction. This one really stood out to me as being a great read. Well done! 55
Real life- not over dramatized story. I absolutely loved it and I seriously find it worth the read! 55
After watching Shane Dawson’s conspiracy video that included a snipit of Brittani’s story, I had to go and read her book. The book is reveting and brutally honest, and Britanni did a fantastic job telling her story of survival. 55
You feel close to her, you can feel her pain and happiness. It truly is a cautionary tale. 45
I bought it right after Shane’s video came out wow always loved her in Shane’s video I’m glad you made it out girl the world missed you 55
Wow, what a story! I couldn't put it down. So thankful everything turned out okay! I wish Brittani and her son all the best!! 55
The book is a good read. It was definitely eye opening and interesting to gain a perspective on the protagonist’s experiences. However, the book did lack a lot of editing. I found some of the sentences were run on and lacked proper details—which kind of made it difficult to follow along. Overall, it was tragic to find out all this happened to a YouTuber I watched. 45
I've seen some of Brittani's videos here and there, but didn't really follow her or know too much about her. Not sure why I didn't, she seems lovely. However, I did see a pregnancy video she posted and then a video talking a bit about what she was going through afterwards (although very vague...for legal reasons, obviously). I was intrigued. This book explains it all, was well written, and easy to read. I finished it in 3 days. 55
Can’t believe the horrible things Brittani had to go through. But it’s heart warming seeing how she is now with Rex ❤️ 55
I used to watch BLT on YouTube years ago when her and Shane would pretend to be goth, or Lady Gaga. To be honest I hadn’t heard any of the rumors since I’ve been away from YouTube raising my own family. I came across Shane’s conspiracy video by chance and immediately bought this book. I felt such sorrow for her and angry with the man who took someone who appeared to be so lighthearted and happy and inflicted so much pain. I cried several times and somehow felt relief when I read her outcome even though I already knew what would happen from Shane’s video. I pray for nothing but happiness for her and Rex and that nobody else ever has to endure what this family suffered. Well written, fast moving, honest and emotional. I very much hope BLT writes another book in the future. Something happy. She deserves a good dose of happy. 55
So much love for Brittani, her mother, & beautiful son, Rex. No one should have to go through what they did. This message needs to be spread, anything can happen in life! 55
man. this book was a JOURNEY. at first i did not like how it was wrote, it felt like i was just watching another one of her videos, but as it went on i got hooked. i read this in 3 hours (i'm a fast reader idk) and anytime i felt the need, i'd match the date she put and would go watch the youtube video posted around that exact time (i actually recommend doing this) she is a veRY strong lady to deal with what she did, and i'm very proud of her. if you pay attention closely, you can see her pain in the videos. it makes sense. overall, HOLY CRAP. this is a wild story and i'm happy i read it. 45
Definitely something to read. However it wasn’t as amazing as I thought it was going to be. It had poor grammar, needed a professional editor to look it over. The first half of the book was unspeakably boring except for some two sentence action. However I will say that the last one hundred pages had me. I was super attached, the tea only begins to spill around chapter 14. Although I don’t recommend skipping as you’ll miss important details. Glad I gave it a read though. 35
Just purchased the book this morning and could.not.put.it.down. It really reflects am accurate picture of dating in today’s society and sheds light on DV cases. Yes, it is written a but different from other biographies but she does a great job telling her side. I didn’t think she came off judgmental in the slightest. (Pertaining to other reviews). Good read and very eye opening to hear her side of things. 55
I’m very proud of you for this Brittani!!! 55
Brittani you are such a strong woman! I’ve been watching your videos for years and I cannot believe something this traumatic could ever happen to you. You are an inspiration. We love you! 55
Never have I been so sucked into a book before. What an incredible story. Love her strength! 55
Brittani, I am floored. You’re amazing. The number one job as a mom is to protect, you succeeded. So much respect pouring out for you. 55
I finished this in one day because I could not put it down. The story is utterly insane and I cannot believe that this actually happened to someone. Power to Brittani for telling her story. So glad she and her family are safe and doing well. 45
This is a true story about an influencer that was in an abusive relationship. She is not really a writer , but she’s a great storyteller. Targeting a younger demographic will help educate young people on domestic violence and abuse so her style is pretty good. I had no trouble reading the introduction. I feel like it will be a very great book that educates and starts conversations. 55
