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💘💘

    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.

    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.

    This struck so many emotions in my heart. And I have been in similar but not as extreme situations that did not end as well as her story did. ( You know, minus the Mafia, doctor, con artist parts) It was lengthy, but answered so many questions. I read it all in a few hours. My heart breaks that she went through this. I encourage everyone to read this, as it is a lesson about the world we live in and shows us how careful we must be. I am so happy for her happy ending, and I hope it falls into anyone’s hands who may come into contact with him.

    Starting out as a light hearted love story about online dating quickly turns into a mother fighting to protect her newborn child and herself. The last 8 chapters go by in a blink of an eye, keeping you on your seat and hungry to turn the next page to find out what happens next. Brittani is an inspiration to human beings everywhere. She got herself out of a situation we all have become too familiar with. Read her story, share it with your friends and loved ones.
