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.

Tbh I'm going to stop now. This book is really good though, I can tell already. I already know the person I'm going to hate the most gonna die so there really isn't a point in reading the rest. Sorry. Great story though!
I want to know how he was to her and how he treated her and what made her kill her?  What exactly was the last straw for her until she couldn't take it anymore ~Anita

I think your  first Chapter is the best of all books I read so far.
                              And that means something.
I think it's a great start and makes me anxious to start her story!

I think the first chapter was very intriguing and suspenseful, definitely will keep reading. I really want to see what he did to make her commit the murder.
