Where does a moderately popular internet star who never leaves her house look for potential suitors? Online. Tinder, Bumble, Match.com, OkCupid—I tried them all. My thirty-one-year-old self clicked and swiped her little heart out, leading to more dates than I could count, and more disappointment than I was prepared for.
Maybe you can relate. Maybe you know all too well the perils of modern dating. But let’s say, eventually, you meet someone. You think to yourself, “Wow, they’re perfect! Take me off the market, put a ring on it, knock me up, the whole enchilada, because they are ‘the one.’” Let’s also say that they “feel the same way” about you. Your life starts to make sense! All the pain, heartbreak, and frustration from past failed relationships was worth it. Slow clap.
That’s how I felt about Milos. He was from Europe, a doctor, wealthy, athletic. He had an accent and a dog. Milos was textbook marriage material.
For him it was “love at first sight,” but for me, it was “anxiety on every date.”
Something was telling me to run—but for two years, the only running I did was straight into his arms.
If only I would have listened.
This isn’t a love story.
It’s my story of survival.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Even our worst online dating experiences pale in comparison to the nightmare relationship detailed in YouTube star Brittani Louise Taylor’s riveting memoir. Handsome Milos—a wealthy doctor from Serbia who speaks multiple languages—seems too good to be true when Taylor first connects with him on Tinder. Sure enough, Taylor eventually discovers—too late—that her charming beau is a total fraud; as more truths surface, she even has reason to fear for her life. A Sucky Love Story is a cautionary tale about modern romance told with honest, conversational prose. It’ll leave you contemplating the dangers of swiping right.

Never felt more connected to someone
I have been wanting to read this book for months and I’m so bummed it’s over. I absolutely loved it. It made me feel like I’m not alone. And that other people chose to make the same decision I did when I was in my abusive relationship. And there’s nothing wrong with that. I hope this book helps other people either get out of their abusive relationships or feel connected and not alone with their past ones. It’s always so comforting to me to know that I’m not alone in how I feel or felt and that there are other people out there too struggling with the same thing.
It was okay for a light read. It got really off point and it seemed like she would get really rambl-y at certain parts. I often caught myself skipping a few pages and not really feeling like I missed much at all.
I was watching Shane’s most recent YouTube video and started hearing Brittani’s summary of what all happened and I instantly knew I had to go buy this book so I could figure out the rest of the details. I literally have never read a book so fast, I bought it and read it all in 5 and a half hours... 12/10 would recommend, I honestly just couldn’t bring myself to put it down!!
