      Love sees inside the person It doesn t stop at the surface That stuff is all just window dressing, anyway It says nothing about what you re really getting.Don t Make Me Beautiful by Elle Casey is a beautiful and powerful story which revolves around an abused woman s journey in finally escaping the clutches of the monster who held her captive Elle Casey depicts a very real, raw and at times very disturbing picture of domestic abuse However, with this being said, there is beauty in survival and th [...]

      3.5 Stars While I didn t end up falling in love with the delivery of this story, I respect its content and the brave messages it so strongly conveyed Don t Make Me Beautiful centers on one woman s escape of an extremely brutal and heartbreaking case of domestic abuse The beginning presents fairly gruesome events that, although potentially difficult for some to witness, are detrimental in communicating an honest representation of the abuse Nicole is a woman who is trapped in a physically and ment [...]

      That book hugely disappointed me Domestic violence is an issue all of us should be sensitive about and when films are made or books are written about it, I appreciate the effort that is why I read this book but it didn t make sense all the way through.Having grown up in a home where there was domestic violence, I have a pretty good idea how it feels like and many things in this book sounded so wrong to me.Before telling you my problems about this book, let me describe the severe condition of the [...]

      DNF at around the 60% mark Have read other Elle Casey s books and have enjoyed them But this one fell a bit flat Really liked the idea of the story and the story started out ok, but as it went on some of the characters actions, mainly the main male character Brian s felt a bit too unrealistic I really liked the compassion he showed but a lot his actions were just too much too convenient for under the circumstances Also, I m not the biggest fan of insta love and that was the vibe I got in this bo [...]

      A Romance Suspense Novel I liked the writing and it had a unique story line However, I felt it was a little unrealistic I did not feel it was accurate description of the way someone who had been so brutally abused would have reacted and responded to a new relationship Overall an OK read.

    27. ijeoma Agbaje on said:

      This book had a nice premise and the first couple of chapters were actually promising but the whole plot went down hill so fast, it left my head spinning I cannot stress this enough, authors need to stop romanticising serious issues in books When authors write about Rape, Kidnapping, Domestic Violence, Pedophilia et al and label perpetrators of these acts Anti Heroes it stresses me out, when they make paint it in a romantic way it really really does my head in.Real Life is messy and frankly if y [...]
