Men do NOT love abuse

As a male survivor of domestic violence at the hands of my ex-wife, I find the title of this book absolutely horrendous. This is no laughing matter. It is not acceptible to use 'abuse' as a metaphor. If I were a woman criticizing a book for men, no one would argue with me about this and you all know it. If a woman does not treat me with dignity and respect, as I would her, not only would her advances not be welcome, I might even call the cops. This book's title and approach are in very bad forn and taste and do not help to put the 'civil' in 'civilization'.

    Great Book!!!! Once you start reading you won't put it down ... Empowering!!!

    Tionna gives great advice to women on not to sell ourselves short,I read this book in one day and i believe that a lot of women will identify with this book 100%. This book will empower women to know their worth and not to allow any man to use and walk all over you. Knowing when to let go and walk away from a man that is not right for you. This book will have you laughing, and then saying i remember going through that... Once you get started reading this book you will not put it down. My favorite quote is " Things that have limited access are considered Exclusive, and Exclusive things are given VIP treatment."

    Tionna's best yet!

    The best thing about Tionna is her straight-shooting perspective. This book is honest and real, the type of advice you WISH your best friends would give you about your lame love life, but they're too afraid to just spit it out and say. Stop being soooo nice, don't make that fool dinner and he's not even your man...you can read the juicier tips for yourself!!

    I can't lie. I loved this book. It was like I was sitting on the couch talking to one of my girlfriends. I used to be one of those girls who friends said I was too hard on men and the minute I changed my ways it backfired on me. Reading this book made me see what I was doing wrong and I'm going back to it. 2012 Men need a wake up call and if being mean to them is how they get it. I'M DOWN LOL... Good Book :-)

    more from this reviewer

    Take it from a "good girl" like me...MEN LOVE ABUSE!!!

    Tionna Smalls is the best friend that every woman wishes she had. As a person who everyone describes as a "good girl", I can honestly that her stories and advice are so on point. Unlike other popular relationship books, it is a pleasure it read one from a woman's perspective who has actually lived what she is writing about. I could have saved myself years of trouble if I had had Tionna whispering her nuggests of wisdom in my ear. She is so straightforward and honest with a humorous twist that makes the reader crave more. I literally had to make myself slow down and stop reading so I wouldn't finish this book in an hour. Men Love Abuse is such a treat and something every woman, no matter her age or nationality, could benefit from having in her library. Congratulations on your latest project Tionna. I am eagerly awaiting the next!
