    Hi not bought this book yet but thought i needed to put this comment on to the lady above I was too in an abusice relationship with my now x husband I was together with him for a number of years thinking this is normal Then we had children then when your children get a bit older and the abuse affects them at hone and at school cthat completly made me choose the children and I made him leave the house Since this time with the help of my amazing family and friends i have become a stronger a lot happier person and know whould never let any man treat me like rubbish again I hope you do find the courage to leave your relationship because when you do you will wonder why you ever stayed for so long Oh by the way my children are so much happier and have complety grown in so many ways It has touched me your comment and please know that there is a better happier life waiting for you with love xx

    So I’ve been waiting for this to come out and after seeing her talk about this on loose women so I downloaded the kindle version Wow I couldn’t put it down and only have a few chapters leftI had a personal reason for wanting this book as I have been in an abisive relationship for the past 10 years and still am so I was hoping it would make me feel like someone else knew what it was likeIt did just that mine is a slightly different situation but it is so nice in a strange way to hear someone else’s experiences and Mel is so honest in this book I take my hat off to her as it is very embarrassing to talk aboutI think after finishing I will continue to re read this as I find it really inspiring and hopefully one day I might find the strength to leave and be on my own like Mel didThis book isn’t just about that though so it’s not a depressing book by any means it talks about all aspects of her life including her time in the spice girls and tv shows she’s been involved in ectI would say this is a good book for anyone no matter what your personal situation is you will find it interesting and well written so I highly recommend this book and hope you’ve found my review the slightest bit helpful in deciding whether to purchase or not

    Mel B was my least fave Spice Girl but after reading this book she is my hero She does not hold back anything about her horrendous controlling husband Belafonte and it is a very upsetting read She does not glorify the violence in her marriage but it is so distressing to read about how her children knew about the abuse especially the effect it had on her eldest child Phoenix heartbreaking Despite what she believes she is a fab mum; her adorable children love her very much and all she can do now is never to repeat the cycle of abuseI admire Mel B's spirit and I do believe every word She was controlled and would do anything to keep the peace The fact that he threatened to release the sordid sex tapes to ruin her career shows what a nasty svengali type of villain she was dealing withLike Mel B or not this book is a true page turner I could have read it in one sitting It is written well and flows well I can't believe she has been 'brutally honest' takes some guts but she is safe now hopefully It was a shame that her horrendous marriage broke up relationships that Mel valued such as with her close friends and lovely family She can only move forward now and I wish her luck in finding a decent man who can show her what true love meansBuy it

    There are so many psychological abusers about who prey on people who are naive manipulate them so that they feel they cannot live without themThat’s when the coercion beginsWhy people have to make others feel so bad I’m not sure they obviously have many insecurities that they project onto othersEveryone contemplating a new relationship should read this bookFrom a fellow survivor

    I had to read this book in stages as its uite enraging I understand about abusive relationships and trauma binding with toxic partners so i do completely appreciate why she went back to Stephen but that doesn't make it easy to read i knew it was going to happen but i still had to have some time away from the book before i could pick it back up againI think i was expecting scandal and name dropping but it wasn't as honest as i thought it would be for Eddie Murphy to cut her off like that because she needed space from the relationship didn't ring true to me and i believe Melanie is far damaged from her childhood than she admit to herself She states in the book her father regularly took a leather belt to her and she would be made to wait days for the punishment causing trauma and perpetual anxiety to a child has far reaching and lasting effects hence why she married an abuserThe book is worth a read if you can read between the lines lies i love a good celebrity autobiography and this didn't disappoint in that respect i love to see how people rise to stardom It did leave a lot of unanswered uestions she makes the suggestion that her ex husband stole all of her money but if that is true why have the police not been involved in the book she states her fee from the X factor which i assume would have been substantial was spent from her account within 3 days could have done with an epilogue it was a nice touch with the extras at the end from her daughter Angel who her ex husband targeted for some pretty horrific hate and I believe he should be brought to justice for the abuse he meted out to her 3 month groundings shouting and terrifying herI would recommend the book but i wouldn't recommend reading it in one sitting as its uite emotional

    Was not a fan of Mel however decided to read this after her Loose Women appearance discussing itFirstly I believe every word she says shame for her kids but she can now rectify thatLove that her family were instantly there for her even after all that timeVery honest read and I definitely understand her behaviour since being with him now
