This is the first story I’ve read from a male perspective concerning an abusive relationships. Miller does an outstanding job adding to the suspense, developing the characters and weaving prayer and faith into the storyline. Ok, let me back up…Will (the main character) prayed in church for a clean heart and God fearing wife when he opened his eyes he saw Morgan. An afternoon of conversation led to a quick courtship even though Morgan didn’t reveal much about her past. Will and Morgan had a fairy ...more

Once I started reading the book, Will Tracy seems to be a good man but a little timid and weak for my tastes early on whereas he feels emasculated by his wife, and also refers to his past being considered a "sissy" or what I call--soft. He seems to display the soft manly behavior once he accepts his wife demeanor the moment she has to work and be the breadwinner. He hates to ask for anything, especially money. Yet he meets with a past member, Tyler, and wondered why he stopped going to the churc ...more

Another good read for the month of October dealing with domestic violence. Although this book deals with the other side of it. "Quiet as it's kept, domestic violence is not just male on female, but female on male abuse does exist. While men often use physical violence as a means to subdue their mates, women are cunning using different tactics to achieve the same results." This reminds me of a sermon I heard recently about Jezebel and the spirit behind it. The spirit of Jezebel has nothing to do ...more

Will thought he was in love the moment he saw Morgan in church. They weren't dating that long before he asked her to marry him. Two years into the marriage, he begins to see things he doesn't like. He eventually finds out that Morgan is not who she said she was, the mother that she said had died was very much alive, and the day he had the car accident because of a toy under his brakes she was behind that. He goes to a men's group at the church and finds out that men can be abused as well as wome ...more

My first impression is that Will Tracy rushed into his marriage with Morgan. He barely knew anything about her. He never met any of her family before marrying her. The premarital sex must have been mind blowing. He suspected that he was trying to murder him. she also threw the fact that he had a hard time finding a job into his face on a regular basis. The Church was where they met but faith was not a big part of their relationship. A men's group that was based on men surviving abuse was a savin ...more

This book was ok very informative but it started off slow. I would have like for the book to have given both sides of Morgan and Wills story. Will in my opinion was the kind of guy most women would want but he was nieve it took him a while to figure Morgan was trying to cause him harm then when he found out she wasn't who he thought she was he still didn't want to know the whole truth. I really appreciated the friendship with Will and Phillip we all ask for that type off friendship. I would love ...more

Domestic Violence

Wow, I never really gave much thought about men being abused by women. Usually when we think about domestic violence it's usually the woman that's being abused. Not in the case of Will and Morgan aka CiCi Tracy. In this emotional story we get to see the man being abused, not physically but emotionally and psychological. I must say that Will never lost his faith in God and the test that he was going through was definitely a "Testimony" in the good.
All it took was to have the fai

This book was different. I remembered Will from a couple of other Monique Miller novels that I read. I was sad to see that his story was so dismal, though I am glad with the way that things ended. I would like to read maybe a sequel to this book where Will's fate is a bit more fortunate. Overall, it was a good story. I rate it 3.5 stars. I don't think I would read it again, and I would recommend it to someone who is a fan of Ms.Miller's books.

This was an interesting read and I give this book a thumbs up. I was determined to find out if Morgan was really trying to kill Will. I was right all along she got caught up in her own mess. Lies after lies and I couldn't believe what I was finding out. I knew she was trying to harm Will, but never would I have assumed she lied about her identity and past. You never know who people really are!!!. July 12, 2013. .

I really enjoyed this book. After reading a couple chapters I realize that the leading lady in the story had some serious issues. I was surprise as things begun to unfold. I read this book in less than 24 hours, it held my attention to the end.

This was a good book. I do think that Will should have ask his ex wife more questions before they got married. If he had then i don't think he would of went through all the pain and near death experiences he went. U never know what a man or woman my go through doing domestic violence.

This is my first time reading this author. I must say it kept my attention, however, I wish it would have had a tad bit more drama. Overall, it was a good book.
