a persons life I rarely leave reviews for books based on true events because it s so easy to say things like If that were me, this would never happen , how could they be so naive Red flags , where were her friends, her parents, anybody , why didn t they just walk away It s so easy call people out on things we would and would not do in a situation We d all like to be the hero, we d all like to be the good guy , the person who stood up and took action Call Brittnai naive, call her out for being there only for the money, it still doesn t take away what happened and nobody deserves to go what she went through A Sucky Love Story basically answers every question any Brittnai fan had through the whole ordeal How she met her abuser, how quickly their relationship moved, behind the scenes of her videos, her son s name From the first time having sex to the final court date, Brittnai wrote about it I m super glad that she wrote this book and is healing from her past trauma and her story is super important My only gripe really stems from the writing style itself which has nothing to do with Brittnai s healing or trauma itself There were times when the writing style just wasn t my thing The cutesy winky face asides and over describing how good looking certain guys were made me roll my eyes It made the narrative read like immature young adult novel I can only take so much talk about muscles and big blue eyes before it became repetitive after awhile In all fairness, the cutesy writing did taper off towards the end I also felt like there were some pretty outdated opinions on how men and women work when it comes to dating and there were some petty judgements all around involving weight and sexual experience.With this being said, I want it to be clear my rating has nothing to do with Brittnai s experience, her story or her healing, but rather the writing style I do hope that she continues to grow as a person and a writer Pre Review Thoughts While I m super happy that she s finding a path to healing from an abusive relationship, I m really hoping that this book isn t as Click Bait in nature as her videos have been leading up to this There s a couple things that seem a little iffy about the publishing of this book I kind of don t get why she s not allowed to talk about it in a video for legal reasons but is allowed to publish a book Genuinely curious as to why one is legal and the other one isn t legal Edit I wouldn t be surprised if she reconnects with Shane Dawson and he centers one of his documentaries around her flag 22 likesLike see review View all 5

all thought Behind closed doors and away from the camera things weren t all smiles and i m so shocked of what Brittani went through over the next couple of years I m so glad that Brittani got the courage enough to sit down and write this incredible story about what she went through after meeting this man she thought she was going to spend her rest of her life with but things didn t go that way for her Things were seemingly going very well for her in the first stage of the relationship but soon things started to unravel and reveal themselves and Brittani just knew she had to get out of this situation but things proved to be harder for her then she expected The manipulation that Brittani endured was incredible and i can t even imagine what it was like for her to even go through this struggle Things got a little messy when Brittani found out she was pregnant with his child and now things came a fight to keep not only herself safe but also her sons safety I along with other people wondered what was going on with Brittani because she suddenly stopped posting weekly vlogs and was going absent for huge amounts of times, there were so many theories to what was going on I never paid any attention to them however i knew there were plenty of gossip sits and forums talking about what they think happened and some people went as far as searching for answers Brittani one day announced that she would be releasing a book and will be finally telling her story and i would have never in my wildest dreams imagined this is what happened to her Brittani should be proud about what she s written about because it gives a voice for others to speak out and for people like me to stand up and use our voices to say something if we see this happening Please go read this story because it s a beautifully written story about what Brittani went through and what she had to overcome to get to where she is today flag 12 likesLike see review Dec 09, 2018 Sara Grace Kelly rated it did not like it

he wasn t in the picture any I empathize with her experience and am so happy that she no longer has to deal with the pain she must have been going through during this whole ordeal BUT I will say a lot of the stuff that she said in this book I just cannot support And that sucks.1 Her writing sucks I m not saying that I m the best writer in the world, but I mean her rambling on for 3 chapters about how shitty dating is doesn t really help her explain the story of what happened to her followers which is what this book was There were parts where I literally was yelling WHY DOES THIS MATTER and it didn t matter to the story at all Her saying that she didn t drink, and explaining in full detail why, the whole thing about the kid with the stickers, a lot of the side stories I didn t care I just wanted to know why milos was a dick It s hard to believe that companies pay her to write for them when this book was hardly anything than diary ramblings I know that sounds harsh but seriously I couldn t look past the writing for the story which I can typically do 2 I cannot believe I supported someone all this time who talked about sex and porn and sluttyness like it was wrong and gross I don t care if you lost your virginity at 12 or 65, as long as you are having safe sex, your choices are valid Period I m really not okay with a influencer putting these thoughts into young girls heads as if they re facts when her conservative morals and opinions are just that HER conservative morals I don t think anyone will leave this story feeling like this was a great love story because obviously not but let s not put these thoughts into kids heads, okay 3 She flip flopped so much Physical attraction comes first I care about the heart and mind Just pick one okay 4 I listened to the audio book and lord do I regret it It s by far the worst audiobook ever which is weird because like she narrates it, and she wrote it But I had to listen to it on 2x speed in order for it to not be painfully slow And there was mistakes in the audio Bloopers and shit where she messed up but they didn t edit it out Idk man weird Look, all in all, I m glad I know now, as a fan of hers, and as a woman I m glad her and her family are safe, and that that asshole is FAR away from them for awhile, at least But as far as YouTube books go, this is not it, my dudes Just read a spoilery review and don t waste your time I m sorry Brittani if you ever read this Please don t mistake this review as a dig at your pain It s not Your pain is valid and I m so glad you spread your story to hopefully

should show this through their maturity and ability to formulate thoughts regarding their past This felt as though she was shaming everyone women and men by placing labels on them, digging into stories that were completely unnecessary and also painted her negatively because of how she chose to tell them and just rolling out a story to the point where where it no longer had substance To me this felt rushed with no budget for an editor or even a moment for her to read back on what she scribbled all over the page Also the cover does nothing for the book I know YouTubers have to stay on brand and her brand is, well, her I can justify a photo of her because of this, but all the other aspects are completely wrong for this book and what it contains The colors don t set the mood for the story, her outfit makes no sense, her smiling on the cover could make sense if you look deep into it allowing her overcoming the situation to speak for her emotions on the cover but still wrong mood, the way they displayed the title by having her hold the light box doesn t connect the reader to the title or story whatsoever This book wasn t for me If you re young although I m not sure I would recommend this to young children because of the slut shaming etc you would probably enjoy her writing that seemed like a fan fiction we all used to read in middle school You should have seen me, madly dashing through my walk in closet slash office I threw on a tank top that I knew was flattering, and picked out the shortest, yet not slutty, shorts that I owned Topped it off with my favorite knee high boots, the ones with the fancy buckles Ready or not, I went to meet the mysterious doctor who I just couldn t seem to say no to But how do you say no to destiny I wouldn t be surprised if she got

away from Brittani s journey With hindsight, I often wanted to interject and tell Brittani not to believe Milos, or to leave Milos, or to stop focusing so much on his looks and realize he was creepy from the start But, knowing that she lived this story is terrifying and sad I m glad Brittani was able to finally share her perspective, and I think this book is overall well done.With that being said, I did feel very uncomfortable with some of Brittani s language in the book, and wanted to point out that no matter how horrible a person is, they shouldn t be shamed due to their weight I can agree that Zora was mean, controlling, and manipulative, but I did not like that she was called a cow and a pig due to her weight Brittani also states that Zora, was a talented cook, obvious by her girth, p.179 In the same way, Brittani also makes, what I feel, to be damaging statements regarding women and men On page three, she blames her past failures with love due to her early pursuit of athletics, therefore saying that athletic women are undesirable to men because they may be overly aggressive Despite claiming that she is a feminist at heart, Brittani describes men as hunters, and that women need to allow the male species to play mind games if they want to find a partner, pp 3 4 It makes me sad to think that young women will read this book and think they need to play into a specific role of what a woman is in order to find love Nonetheless, I am glad Brittani wrote this book I do think it will cause people to be cautious when online dating, and I hope it will give others the courage to leave similar situations I hope that Brittani can continue to heal from this traumatic ordeal, and that she and Rex will have a happy and safe future flag 5 likesLike see review Dec 04,

situation, as well as for creating a better life for her son The abuse she suffered was wrong and any of the issues I have with the book have nothing to do with questioning the legitimacy of her abuse Rather, I hope this will be helpful for a people deciding if they re the kind of reader who would enjoy this book and b reflecting on the messages the book sends First, I should be clear that I listened to the audiobook rather than reading it physically That being said, the book needed an editor with a heavier hand There were a number of points in the book where Brittani went on over explanatory tangents that did little for the plot as well as awkward phrasing ex repeated use of the word dwelling instead of home house On one hand I appreciate that it seems she genuinely wrote this book herself as a novice, but at the same time a thorough edit would have allowed the book to use her authentic voice while also cutting out superfluous and unprofessional writing My second caveat is delineating Brittani s own opinions feelings from actual, solid advice Brittani seems to hold beliefs about the immutable nature of men and women that I personally find toxic Were a younger person to read the book, I would be concerned they would absorb some of these ideas as truth Additionally, she expresses some pretty sex negative opinions I was put off by the way she discusses desirable undesirable sexual behavior Again, I think it s dangerous to be sending slut shaming messages or the message that being a virgin is embarrassing to younger readers Overall, I struggled to connect with the message of personal development and growth when it seemed like there was an absence of self awareness on Brittani s part I think it s one thing to detail past flaws or misgivings in the context of hindsight and self reflection, but instead Brittani fails to realize how some over her own behavior and beliefs may have contributed to unfulfilling relationships or perception of self I m speaking specifically about guys who were duds, not about her marriage which was abusive There is a distinction between the two Again, that abuse was unacceptable regardless and unwarranted I think literature that is easily digestible and talks about serious issues like intimate partner violence is important It helps readers, in particular younger readers who are just beginning to navigate romantic and sexual relationships, better understand what they should expect from others as well as red flags Unfortunately, I think insofar as being informative and containing healthy messaging, I m afraid I found Brittani s book to miss the mark The unhappiness and harm she overcame are important, but I don t think guys are guys and sex negative conversations are advisable for impressionable readers I think if you re looking for a peek inside someone s head, this book might do it for you If you re a big fan of hers and you want to consume anything she puts out, you ll most likely also enjoy this.Readers can expect to take away a lesson that we can go through something really, really tough and come out the other side I m afraid, however, that the book s capabilities stop there and I don t think it s advisable to try and ask it to teach us anything than that flag 3 likesLike see review Dec 03, 2018 Maddy rated it it was amazing review of another edition I only read the free iBooks preview, but it was enjoyable thus far Some say that she rambles too much, but I find that her rambling is important because it provides background information and a look into her personality, which is critical for those who don t already know who she is Regardless, from her detail, I learned a lot about her and her past that she did not mention on social media.Some reviewers said that Brittani is semi judgmental in some parts of the review, but if you know Brit I only read the free iBooks preview, but it was enjoyable thus far Some say that she rambles too much, but I find that her rambling is important because it provides background information and a look into her personality, which is critical for those who don t already know who she is Regardless, from her detail, I learned a lot about her and her past that she did not mention on social media.Some reviewers said that Brittani is semi judgmental in some parts of the review, but if you know Brittani in person or from watching her on YouTube for years, you would already know what her values are I think knowing these things about her will help make the story relatable.Some also said it sounds like a teenager wrote the story I beg to differ Sure, it could be read by a pre teen, teen, or young adult which I believe is her target audience for those just stepping foot into the dating world but written by a teenager No But I mean, did people honestly expect this to be the equivalent of a thesis or dissertation If it was, I wouldn t be reading it I like how the story unravels Brittani s personality and humor I m glad it reflects her and how she would talk and not that of a Havard college professor or lawyer.And in response to those who think this book takes a serious subject and makes light of it, never would Brittani ever do this to joke around or make abuse not seem as bad as it really is She s been through it firsthand, but the fact that she can still act like herself in her book and on YouTube makes me glad after everything she has gone through I think her sense of humor and positive personality actually took a lot of anxiety off my shoulders as I read the preview I don t know if I could bear reading into the dark past of Brittani if it weren t for her bubbly personality shining through.To give my general thoughts, this book is easy to read, but it isn t so easy that it s boring I think her choice of words was just right It s the kind of read where even if you don t know what some of the words mean, you don t have to pull out a dictionary to interpret what she s saying Even with what people consider rambling, this is something that one can read quickly, without becoming frustrated that they don t know what s going on in the book Brittani is very straight forward in everything she says, which is great.This isn t some boring college textbook, spewing out statistics and facts type of read it truly feels like you re in the perspective of Brittani, as it should It s SO her.I would love to see books from Brittani in the future if that is her goal flag 3 likesLike see review Dec 04, 2018 Heather rated it it was amazing I ve never wanted to give an author a hug so much in my life

opinion, absolutely awful It was entirely juvenile and the sentences ran into each other and there were grammar mistakes and hanging clauses everywhere, not to mention a lot of the stuff that she wrote about for long periods were completely irrelevant to the story I can t tell you how many times I heard about an outfit unnecessarily or had inconsequential details described that just were not needed.Secondly, some of the opinions expressed in this were just straight up toxic The author s views are quite conservative and that s fine, but the way she expressed them often felt preachy and judgemental of anyone who disagreed The way she speaks about porn and sex and alcohol and drugs to name a few topics was downright degrading and very polarising and I felt uncomfortable at multiple moments that she was judging anyone who felt differently to her I also pretty much hated any time she would describe anyone s appearance in this book, because it was in most cases completely unnecessary and was often cruel honestly, particularly the way she d describe people s weight or small body imperfections such as body hair, appearance of teeth and height She described Milos the guy she was with SO MANY TIMES in the exact same ways and often she d be detailing how hot and sexy he was right in the middle of explaining an abuse scenario which is just confusing as a reader although obviously far confusing for her.I listened to this on audiobook and I noticed that she spoke veeeeeeerrrrrry slowly so if it wasn t for Audible s x2 feature I probably wouldn t have been able to get through this book Also, Brittani put on accents in her narration of conversations which I felt really took away from the severity and reality of the story This book wasn t that long, but the way the chapters were split up also felt quite clunky at times Also I definitely noticed some bloopers that just weren t removed from the book I m just baffled as to why this wasn t edited or produced crisply, we shouldn t have to listen to the narrator of an audiobook mispronounce a word and re read it.And finally, THE COVER While at first I thought this was maybe a satirical cover trying make fun of goofy, overly fluffy, uplifting love story covers, after finishing I don t think the team behind this book was being that clever, and I hate this cover The colours, the styling, the font, the look on her face, it s all in stark contrast to the content of this book and it really downplays the book This book could ve had a really great cover with darker hues and only words on it and I think that would ve better conveyed the seriousness of the book and the harsh content that it depicts although I m not in publishing or graphic design so maybe I have no idea what I m saying Overall, I m giving this book 2 stars because I do feel glad that I read and it passed quickly because I was engrossed in the story Again, I have no hard feelings towards Brittani, I think this is ultimately a tale of a woman who was dealt a terrible hand and showed great strength in getting her and her baby out of the situation That being said, I m honouring Brittani s struggle with an extra star but the writing and the production of this novel gets a 1 star from me for sure flag 2 likesLike see review View 1 comment Dec 17, 2018 Kimberly Mccune rated it did not like it review of another edition Shelves 2018 I

abuse, sociopathic behavior, domestic violenceThis is the first time I have ever returned a Kindle book for a refund.Although I was able to finish it in twenty four hours, this book was difficult to read not because of the absolutely insane events that transpired and they are a doozy , but because this work DESPERATELY needed the hand of an editor or experienced writer The publishing house should be embarrassed at the number of typos and grammatical errors usually the wrong word choice that wouldn t have been caught on spellcheck story rather than store, for instance This was not the quality of work that I would expect to see in print and ultimately does Brittani and her tale a HUGE disservice by distracting you from the sequence of events.Brittany is known for her YouTube videos Film is a medium in which she is comfortable and obviously succeeds She does not have experience in this type of writing and it shows glaringly I don t mind a conversational style, but this work was next level The amount Of half made sentences Was enough to Halt you through reading The sentences that weren t chopped up were all dialogue so much mundane and unnecessary dialogue Honestly, it read as though she originally filmed this as a video, learned the potential legal repercussions of posting said video, and transcribed it into a Word document which Post Hill Press immediately sent to the printer without even opening it.In addition to all of the technical issues, I was shocked to read all of Brittani s unnecessary and often times cruel commentary on other people s appearances as well as her incessant need to slut shame every other woman in her story except for maybe her mother The physical descriptions didn t add to the book and honestly made Brittani look like someone she probably isn t I had only recently gotten into watching her videos, and at this point I have no desire to watch any She just isn t the type of person I want to learn about or hear from, especially if she wants to spend so much energy putting others down.The marketing for this book was huge And it worked Her physical book is sold out on , so good for her I just think that it was rushed to publish and will ultimately hurt her and her brand dr this book is rife with technical issues that make it almost unreadable Save your time and money and read a spoilery review instead flag 2 likesLike see

two years, her fianc , Milos, had ensnared her in his trap.Milos is rich, Serbian, incredibly handsome, a doctor, a speaker of multiple languages, and someone who also survived the Yugoslav Wars in the 90 s Too good to be true, right He just forgot to leave out the most important partHe is a sociopath A liar so entrenched in his own lies that one presumes he must vehemently believe them himself.Through Brittani s prose, the reader navigates his disgustingly deceptive world in a way that is relatable, eye opening, and incredibly poignant The book is mostly well edited, if but having a few overused cliches such as the breath I didn t know I was holding The first part of the book also tends to ramble a bit However, as an entirety, it is logical, straightforward, and harrowing The message is clear be extremely careful who you trust, especially if you are a caring person like Brittani.I highly recommend any and everyone read this book It is a story that must be shared I laughed, I cried, but most importantly, I learned P.S Brittani, you are so loved, and I am SO incredibly sorry this happened to you Continue to protect and care for that baby of yours he is beautiful flag 2

after starting it Why you may ask Because I could not put it down Literally not once did I put it down First let s start with the writing I felt like Brittani was sitting across from me and telling me this story herself The writing was personable and 100% hers I loved the added humor even when humor didn t seem needed I loved how real everything was when it came If I had to give one word to describe this book it would be INTENSE I received this book today and finished it a couple hours after starting it Why you may ask Because I could not put it down Literally not once did I put it down First let s start with the writing I felt like Brittani was sitting across from me and telling me this story herself The writing was personable and 100% hers I loved the added humor even when humor didn t seem needed I loved how real everything was when it came to her morals and personal choices I ve read a couple reviews stating that there is too much rambling but that just made me love the book even.I loved everything about it Now let s talk about the story WOAH Honestly, I was expecting this story to end how a lot of domestic abuse relationship stories do physical abuse, the abused finds the way out, gets police involved, and abuser is captured OR in a tragic case, someone dies before the abuser gets caught Now I m not saying that s how every story goes by any means, I just seem to see many stories like that This ending was very unexpected but made SO MUCH SENSE after Brittani slowly reveals things to you throughout the book I found myself getting angry, upset, and physically scoffing at Milos throughout the book There was one quote that really hit hard with me and it was when Brittani s mom said You shouldn t have to beg for someone to love you I m not sure if it was exactly worded that way but I 1000% agreed This book is a perfect example of an abusive relationship This book shows the perfect signs to look for in an abusive relationship I ve been watching Brittani s Youtube videos since I was in middle school I m 20 now , I have even seen the videos that included the sociopath himself I NEVER would have guessed what was going on behind the camera This story just shows that not everything is what it seems and if you are in an abusive relationship or seeing signs of one GET OUT Thank you Brittani for sharing your story with us You are an incredibly strong human being and your adorable son is SO lucky to have such a strong mother to look up to flag 2 likesLike see review Dec 14, 2018 Tabea Vanessa rated it liked it It s interesting, I wouldn t wish what Brittani went through on my worst enemy and I have nothing but the utmost respect for her for getting her baby and herself out of this hell and keep on fighting That must have cost all the

which was about the man who abused her, but none of us viewers knew anything was wrong From there, I continued to watch their relationship through her videos until he disappeared, she changed her babies name, and she said she couldn t talk about it.If I m being honest, this was a book I did not intend to read I stopped watching Brittani a while ago when she started using clickbate titles to get views However, my curiosity got the best of me I knew her ex had been bad to her, but I didn t know the extent of which it went.This book was pretty poorly written, and I do hate to say that as I think her story is important However, it s hard to look past the things that got on my nerves I found the first half of this to be very hard to get through, as it was incredibly slow Brittani also rambles a lot I could tell that this was her first book, and she made a number of rookie mistakes like using the line I let out a breath I didn t know I was holding Also, having watched Brittani for a while I knew her brand of humor could be a lot, but it just really did not translate well in print Most of her jokes were just plain bad at their worst or cringy at their best I honestly think this would have been better in a film format, as that is what Brittani excels at I do still think that this is worth reading because as I stated earlier this story is insane It s so insane that it s crazy to believe it was ever someone s real existence Anyways, I hope Brittani is doing better now, and I wish her and her son the best flag 2 likesLike see review Dec 10, 2018 Nicole rated it it was

around the age of 10, and was a frequent watcher of her silly videos and sketches as they catered to my young attention span and love of all things fun and girly Since then, I admit that my watching of her videos had decreased solely because I had simply grown out of her video style One day in particular around 2 years ago, however, I had seen a video come up on my feed called I m ENGAGED PREGNANT and watched it to see what the life of one of my old role models had become While I was happy for her and could see happiness in her eyes from being in love, something did not sit right with me about the vibes her fiance had been putting out Little did I know that in around 2 years Ms Taylor would publish a memoir entitled A Sucky Love Story based on her struggles with physical and mental abuse with the man whom she had a public relationship with and was set to marry When this book came out in early December, I knew I had to read it to hear her truth of what traumatic events her and her son had endured from her relationship From Serbian Mafia threats, to physical and mental abuse, to countless arguments, lies, and affairs, this memoir covers everything that happened to her and sends a warning to people everywhere of acknowledging red flags in relationships, taking great care when it comes to online dating, and not being afraid to back down, even when it seems the world is against you.Set in chronological order of events, Taylor shows how a simple swipe on tinder can turn into something mentally traumatic and heartbreaking, which in turn sends a warning to readers that it is easy to be manipulated or fooled into believing the person they are with is someone who they are not and have never been This, along with exact dates and verbatim quotes helps to add to her credibility and allows her a platform to tell her full truth As well as this, Taylor incorporates humor and bits of her own personality throughout the passages which helps to liven the mood when the story gets too intense.One thing, however, was that there was a surplus of details in the story that were hard for me to keep track of But, Taylor wanted her truth out there and to do so, every detail must be included It can be viewed as being a little all over the place, but I think it was important for Taylor to write this book in a way where nothing was left out So, I can overlook this minor problem This story, while being the first book written by Taylor, sends an incredibly important message to readers and also sends a message of support to abuse victims While heartbreaking and horrifying, it can empower other victims of abuse to speak out and live their truth, something it took time for Taylor herself to do I hope abuse victims who read this book will begin to live their truths, the way Brittani herself did so bravely in writing this memoir flag 1 likeLike see review Jan 24, 2019 Karissa rated it really liked it Shelves arc, nonfiction, autobiography, dating I was

me feel like less of a loser to know that someone else was also in the same boat But then you get deeper into the book, deeper into her story, about what really happened with Milos and it s just awful
