What would you do if you were stuck in an abusive relationship? And getting out isn't an easy thing to do. Sometimes you’re torn between thoughts of loneliness and blame. It’s not as easy to leave as one might think. They say that when a person has an addiction they have to hit rock bottom before they themselves can realize that they have a problem. Well the same goes for anyone stuck in an abusive relationship. You have to hit rock bottom before you make the conscious decision to leave and sometimes that’s not enough, it’s too late. Getting out of an abusive relationship is hard, but it’s even harder when the abuser comes back.30 year old Noelle Moore is very unhappy with herself. With the exception of work, she spends most of her time alone and she likes it like that; because when she does venture out, she feels as if everyone is scrutinizing and staring at her. Besides having a rocky relationship with her mother, Noelle also has an incredibly deep seeded fear of the full length mirror that stands in her bedroom. She hides from it, averts her eyes away from it, for she cannot look at it and face the ugliness that she thinks she will find. Then Noelle meets Chris. He is an attractive man who seems genuinely interested in her. Noelle doesn’t want this one to slip away, not even when he starts calling her names, degrading, and hitting her. She thinks she can stop it by being better. But when the abuse gets to be too much for even her, she finds the strength to end it. Thanks to one police officer in particular, Noelle gets her chance to escape her abuser, rediscover herself, and work on her relationship with her mother; if that’s even possible. She knows that she’ll have to make some hard choices. But Officer Ian Soleri makes it all seem so easy.Officer Ian Soleri has been on the force for almost ten years. He's seen his share of violence, especially domestic violence. Once he encounters Noelle Moore’s domestic situation, it leaves an everlasting mark on him. He's the one who responded to the 911 call the night of the brutal beating. The moment he walked into the room and saw what Noelle had just endured, he felt sorry for her. If it wasn't for he and his partner, Ian was sure Noelle would be dead. While waiting for the paramedics to arrive, Ian tries to comfort Noelle, and in doing so he begins to feel something more than just sympathy....

    Loving yourself is all that matters!!!!I really enjoyed this book all the topics, self-confidence, self worth, love, abuse, forgiveness and everything in between. I despised Chris. I loved Noelle, Ian, Charlie, Charlotte, Sherry, Joanne, and Mark. I also really liked her aunt and uncle and eventually I really came to enjoy and like her mom. So many life lessons in this book. #NEEDSTOBEREAD

    What can I say about this book? It was as if the author knew the character personally. there were a lot of personal feelings that this book touched on and i am glad that i am not alone in some of them.The conflict between Noelle and her mother is very realistic.I liked how Noelle, gave herself time to heal before accepting love from anyone else but herself first.This book touches on domestic violence and I couldn't help but feel a connection to the heroine.Much more personal than the other books that I have read by this author and I liked that. I like an author that can touch on different genre's.Very, very easy to relate to this book and put myself in the heroine's shoes.I also like how the author uses blue collar workers as the love interests. They aren't billionaires, they are everyday hard working guys who also know how to treat a woman.Thanks to the author for writing this book.

    Another great book from this fantastic author. Loved the character development and depth of personality. I immediately became invested in the main character and her story. There are some racy parts that make it inappropriate for younger readers, but it is by no means a "smut" book. The love scenes are tasteful and pertinent to the story.I read the book straight through in one day, unable to put it down until I knew how the story ended. Very pleased with it, and looking forward to reading it again.

    Loved this book too! The subject is not only about domestic violence, but it is about a woman who has low self esteem and who learns to put herself first before anything else. And when she does that, she stops being angry, and starts building strong relationships with her friends and gains a lover. I like how this author can tell a story without too much sugar coating to make it seem unrealistic. I also like how the author uses 'blue collar' men as the main love interest. They are usually some gazillionaire who the woman falls for, but in this authors works, she uses people who have ordinary jobs, but prove to be extraordinary human beings. Bravo.
