I never been quite the "nice girl" but I had my share of fk ups especially rencently in my last relationship and Tionna girl you sure did point them out. Being "mean" is what I felt was causing me to be alone so I started feeling like damn maybe I should be more nice and boy did I get fk'd with no vasoline. Thank for writing this book and reassuring to me that its nothing wrong with standing firm in what I believe in and thats not giving a fk bout these dudes feelings til they overly PROVE to me that I can (slightly) lol

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."

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 can read the juicier tips for yourself!!

I'm only on page 87 and it's a hard read. It started off great, but it lacks structure. I also feel like she's a little too 'hard' , I can't help but think those that gave 5 stars are either family members or friends. I get the concept of being guarded but she's taking things to a whole new level. Steve H. book had structure, stayed on topic, and read like an actual guide - not like this. It feels like I am getting bad advice from a friend. Quite frankly, I want the last hour or so of my life & $10.00 back.

This book is great for male/female group discussions…It's real, to the point, and straight truth. This def needs to be a woman's "go-to" guide! @ThatGirlDeige

This book was written about young boys not real men. Great for the young lady age 17 to 21. Real men don't respond well to women who are mistreating them.

Tionna has broken the rules down to the simplest terms. I noticed after reading this book this is how I use to date and was able to sort through the losers better. This book made me take a look at how I have been dealing with men & reevaluate. I will definitely be taking some of her tips and applying it to my dating routine. Got to keep it interesting and I defintely think she is on to something when she says it isn't the that #hoesbewinning but the women who are not caring. Some men only know a woman cares when she is acting like she doesn't. Sorry to say the ones that think this way out weight the one that don't. Ladies it is time to take back you take back your Power!!

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!

If Girl get your Mind Right was a slap in the face to wake women up, then Men Love Abuse can be considered the uppercut. Tionna again delivers her same no nonsense approach to dating, only this time it's more streamlined in how we women should deal with men. While reading you almost get the feeling that if your good sense was speaking out loud than this is what she'd say. Pick this's a quick read, and you'll learn a couple of thangs!

I really enjoyed this book I purchased it last night and finished reading it this morning. This book is an easy read very helpful advice that gets straight to the point and very entertaining . This book gives a lot of advice to women on how we need to remember to put ourselves first and don't sell ourselves short in relationships by giving too much of ourselves too quickly. great book!

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 :-)

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'.
