Publisher's Summary

Seventeen years old when he broke my heart.
Seventeen days later when another picked up the pieces.
Seventeen years together.
Seventeen thousand problems.
Seventeen days of reliving my past and finding a new future.
Seventeen minutes until it all went up in flames.
Seventeen breaths until I took my last.
This is my story, and it's going to burn.

If you've ever been in an abusive relationship (raises hand slowly) then this is a must read! If you just want to read a great book then again, thus is A must read for you.. I too was in an abusive relationship for 3 years, he cheated on me, gave me a VD as proof of it happening. He lied, he choked me many times to the point of almost passing out, he slammed my head on the window in his car, he physically and verbally assaulted me and as hard as it is to say and for anyone I told to understand he did rape me. His reasoning "I just wanted to see how it would feel to overpower someone. To see if I could really have that much control over u." I was 18 and stayed with.him from 17-20 yrs old. Then I was done, I had enough and left him, it wasn't easy at all. Then 3 months later I ended up with someone I graduated with, 2 weeks later we get engaged and on 9/24/14 we celebrated 20 yrs of a very happy marriage. This book brought me thru my journey even though the story itself is different. BRAVO Tara, it was a different type of book for you. I loved the entire story. It was better than I ever thought it would be. We both ended up with our princes.
The narrators were AMAZING. I love listening to a book and really liking the people telling the Story!!
Thank u for letting me know I chose the right guy!!

Droning, whining, blah, blah, blah

Sounds like a totally self-involved teenager - not sure whether the story gets better, as the narrator bored me to sleep.

Great Book

In the summary its not enough for them to convince me into buying this book. So what I did was went online and did a little research on the book and get a little more information, rather then all those repeated "seventeen years/seventeen days" words which doesn't give much clue to the storyline.
Anyway, after getting enough comments from other readers and their story of the book I was convince to buy this book. I listen to it and finish it in a day. It is a great book, love it!!

Definitely worth the purchase or credit. Well to give a little spoiler, it does has a happy ending at the very end. Just wish the story would stretch out a little bit more (Just a little bit like another couple of minutes to half an hour), it feels little rush at the end.
