Let It Be Me
By: Toni Aleo


Blurb
Do you see that woman there?
The one with long, wavy blond hair and blue eyes that used to sparkle?
That’s me, Violet Moore.
Do you see those men over there?
One is my husband, Rob.
A man who claimed he loved me, but proved his fist loved me more.
The other is Tucker McCloud, my savior and confidant.
I'm torn between what's right and my own fear.
But not anymore.
I’m taking my life back now.
I will fight back.
I will be happy.

My Review...

So this book had two things making me want to read it. 1) it was written by Toni Aleo and 2) it's about domestic abuse which is a topic dear to my heart.

The books is soley from Violet's POV. Right from the beginning you are intrigued to what is going on in Violet's head an questioning her thought processes. But unless you have been in that situation yourself it really truly is hard to understand her logic and rationale because fear is an eff'd up thing and fucks with your mind. 

However, hope is a wonderful thing which Violet had lost until she met Tucker than for the first time in a long time she wants to be happy and tries to fight for it. 

Tucker was great maybe a bit too pushy sometimes but he knew what he wanted and just couldn't understand other situations.  

Rob was an utter and complete asshole and you are rooting for Violet to get free from the get go. 

Understanding the brain of an abuse victim makes me a bit more lenient to excuses but I was getting tired of Violets excuses and was so relieved when someone finally breaks her free of her thought processing. 

This book was a good story and does get into the mind of an abuse victim. This book is also about hope, freedom, loving yourself, fear, second chances, forgiveness and love. It's a tale about a woman who is an abuse victim who turns into an abuse survivor.

3.5 thumbs up

  1. Books like these should get more attention; a lot of people don't understand why women won't leave abusive relationships. They don't understand the fear these women live with. Sounds like a great novel.
