Leslie Morgan Steiner met the love of her life at age 22, soon after graduating from Harvard and starting her first job at Seventeen magazine in New York. She fell for his self-deprecating wit and street smarts - and especially his unabashed worship of her. They married and spent four years together. At first Leslie felt like the woman of his dreams.

Then she discovered her husband had been beaten as a child, taught by his parents that intimacy and rage danced together. He brought violence into their life, pouring coffee grinds over her hair, choking and threatening her with a gun during arguments. Several times, he came close to making good on his threats to kill her. Leslie's mistake is one millions identify with: she fell in love with the wrong man. It took one last terrifying attack to convince her that he would kill her one day if she let him.

Gripping and compelling, Crazy Love unravels the traps laid by love, mesmerizing listeners with insights into why smart women stay in unhealthy relationships - and how one found the courage to leave. Download and start listening now!

    " Zipped through this one. The memoir of a young woman who overcomes drugs & alcohol, then ends up in an abusive relationship. Definitely worth reading. "

    " the author's story is compelling and offers an up close look at the reality of domestic violence in relationships. Her words are straightforward and honest and at times uncomfortable for the reader. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in this type of story. "

    " Gripping but awful story of how an intelligent woman very nearly gets killed by her husband. Hard to read but hard to put down. "

    " I didn't love it, but I didn't hate it either; wasn't something I looked forward to picking up every day but it was insightful. I was unaware it was a woman's true tale of being in a domestic violence situation. I'm glad she "saw the light" and was able to get out of that situation. It was interesting to read the thought process of why women stay in these relationships - what they tell themselves after the men that quote unquote love them beat them. Thankfully there were no children involved, who knows how this story would have ended up. "
