A Domestic Violence Tale:    When Rena met Brent, he was a dream come true. He was a real gentleman, funny, caring and even her overly protective father liked him.  
      
    But then, she discovered a different side of Brent - a violent side that scared her. Promising that this had been a one time slip up, she forgave him. After all, he was the love of her life.  
      
      She didn't see the signs - the controlling, the alienation from her friends and dad, the obsession he had with her. She was like putty in his hands.  
      
      Over time, she learned about the Cycle of Abuse the hard way and she even tried to break free. But in the end, she only saw one way out and it will likely cost her everything.

      Authors Note: This is a story about domestic violence and can be disturbing at times. Even though the people in this book are fictional, abuse at the hands of a loved one is real. It is something that can happen to any of us, even to teenagers like Rena.  
      
      Please do not read this book if you find this topic disturbing. It is not designed to upset anyone but to raise awareness.

 #PrivateBookClub @khida3 for week 1 duty either make one comment on this book or on trapped by the same author please
When she says "doc" it reminds me of Raven saying that to abby
yo, it would've been so cool if you titled this chapter, "What's Up, Doc?" XDD
I think that this chapter could've been more gripping. But I have read two others of your books and I will say, girl you have a way with words. 😘 You are an amazing writer. Follow me because I want help writing my own story that us about my life. Will you help me??
