Publisher's Summary

JJ knows what it means to have everything; a loving family, great friends, and an amazing, high profile job. She also knows what it means to nearly lose it all. Her voice hit the airwaves daily, entertaining listeners throughout the city, yet her personal life was crumbling before her eyes. By the time she had made her way through an abusive relationship, she no longer recognized the woman in the mirror. On the brink of losing her mind, her soul and her spirit, her life was hanging on by a thread.
Without Bruises takes listeners on JJ's turbulent journey through a relationship with a sociopath and sheds light on the often missed signs of emotional and mental abuse. In a grueling, year-long battle with depression - and with the help of family, friends, and a life-changing therapist - JJ rises from the ashes better than before. She bounces back with a stronger sense of self, purpose, and power, and it is her mission to share a message of hope with the world.
Without Bruises is a must-hear for anyone questioning the power dynamic in their relationship. It gives guidance and direction to those who have been bruised and broken at the hands of another person; and it offers compassion and understanding to those who love someone currently being abused.
