Overview

If she’d stayed any longer, her husband would have killed her.

Frantic to escape his drug-induced brutality, wealthy socialite Marcia Hadley escapes Santa Barbara, California and flees to Atlantic City, New Jersey. She’s sold everything she owns, rents a seedy inner city apartment and attempts to disappear as Dani Reynolds, cocktail waitress at Frenzy, a neighborhood nightclub.

Taylor Villanova, the club’s sexy bi-racial bouncer recognizes her naiveté and volunteers to teach her about surviving in the “hood.” Fearful and suspicious of men, Dani is at first repelled by Taylor’s violent profession yet drawn to the compassionate nature that contradicts Taylor’s macho persona. But when her well-laid plans go awry, and Dani discovers someone is following her, she must put her complete trust in him.

Her time is running out …

Domestic abuse really boils my blood. I know and understand not every person in an abusive situation is able to get away or live to tell his/her story.

Just had to tell you that I've finally gotten around to reading Have You Seen Her and I am LOVING IT!!! I have to force myself stop to reading so that I can get other things done.

You know I'm from Philly, have been to Warmdaddy's, and having gone to Santa Barbara when I was in LA
recently, I literally know most of the places you mention so I'm getting really good visuals.

I'm enjoying it sooooooooooooo much and just wanted to let you know.

GREAT JOB!!

Chicki Brown's Have You Seen Her is about a woman in an unhealthy relationship and what she does to find herself. Marcia Hadley, Santa Barbara, California socialite has been married for seven years to the heir of a family fortune, has the finest home, cars and clothes, yet that isn't enough to keep Marcia from leaving her husband.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot and Sexy with A Moral Code, too., July 24, 2011

I couldn't put this one down. I rooted for the two main characters - Dani Reynolds and Taylor Villanova - the whole way through. The heat between them was palpable, yet controlled. But I think, as much as I liked Dani, Taylor won my heart, because here's a guy we all want to be with. One who cares for his woman, without steam-rolling her.

The issue of the abuse was well-handled and an important ingredient

5.0 out of 5 stars Well done!, July 30, 2011

This was a book to delve into the controversial world of domestic violence. While this book does have a happy ending, many real life stories do not. Author Chicki Brown took advantage of her writing skills to weave a tale to show one woman's desire to be free from the life threatening clutches of an abusive husband.

Marcia Danielle Hadley could be one of so many women out in this world today. Her story shows how she found her life

    A 5-star story

    Chicki Brown's Have You Seen Her is about a woman in an unhealthy relationship and what she does to find herself. Marcia Hadley, Santa Barbara, California socialite has been married for seven years to the heir of a family fortune, has the finest home, cars and clothes, yet that isn't enough to keep Marcia from leaving her husband.

    Have You Seen Her is an exciting and well-developed story that pulled me in and kept me reading. Ms. Brown has created a fascinating story with intriguing characters. You root for Marcia all the way until she finds true love with a man who not only appreciates her but treats her with respect and dignity. The romance is hot, the suspense keeps you on edge and Ms. Brown's prose are just beautiful. I look forward to seeing more from this author.

    In the spirit of October being Domestic Violence Awareness Month

    In the spirit of October being Domestic Violence Awareness Month, I wanted to talk about a serious issue as well as give a review of a book that courageously deals with that issue. Domestic Abuse, unfortunately, plagues many households across the globe. However, I don’t really see how one could call a place where abuse is an accepted action a “house” or “home.” A home should be a safe haven, not a place from which you run. In “Have You Seen Her” Chicki Brown tells the story of Marcia Hadley—a well to do real estate agent. She had a luxurious home, a beautiful vehicle and lots of money. But none of those things held weight as long as she wasn’t safe. Her husband, Reggie, was a man who couldn’t keep his hands to himself.

    Marcia runs from her nice neighborhood and huge California residence to a small apartment in a seedy part of Atlantic City. She trades her car for cold hard cash and trades real estate for waiting tables. Yet, she never felt more alive and safe. That’s probably because of Taylor Villanova, a bouncer who abounds with interesting layers Marcia can’t wait to explore. But can she trust him? Can she truly feel secure in their future? Or will the past forever haunt her and keep her on the run?

    I truly enjoyed the novel even though it deals with an extremely touchy subject. I mean, I saw “What’s Love Got to Do With It” and disliked Laurence Fishburne’s Ike Turner for a long time afterwards. But we need literature like this because it points to a serious problem that must be solved. Men, and women for that matter, must realize that there is no love in hurting a spouse. Skin, soft and delicate, was made to be babied not battered. And hearts once opened should never be broken by assault and battery. So even though the subject was serious, I enjoyed the way Mrs. Brown weaved the story. The take home message was when it comes to marriage, keep your hands to yourself…unless you’re making love.
