Summary

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.

    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.
  • I really liked it!

    You feel close to her, you can feel her pain and happiness. It truly is a cautionary tale.

    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.
  • She Did A Really Good Job With This!

    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.
  • Amazing ending to an awful story

    Can’t believe the horrible things Brittani had to go through. But it’s heart warming seeing how she is now with Rex ❤️

    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.

    Thank you for surviving and putting your experience on paper. Back in the days when I watched your YouTube channel in High school I always admired your energy and content. I am happy that you survived and want to help others who might be facing this abuse. Thank you, and lots of love -Jay

    I read this book in one sitting. It’s an easy and fast read. I skimmed over a lot of paragraphs. It could use more editing. This read like it was still in draft stage. I think her humor works on YouTube but it translates differently on paper. I commend the author for her vulnerability and sharing her experience. Those types of relationships are horrendous and hard to leave. She’s lucky she got out.
