Unfortunately, I can’t offer the paperback edition for free due to the cost of printing, but I did my best to keep the price as low as possible. The paperback is available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

I am happy to send a free ebook copy in any format via email if, for some reason you are unable to download from any of the vendors listed above. Just email me and ask, and it’s yours. mandywrite@hotmail.com

I’m offering the book for free to get it into the hands of as many readers as possible, especially the younger generation who has yet to experience the things some of us ‘older’ women have. Please share it as much as possible. You have my permission to download it and give it away to as many people as you like, on one condition: Do not sell it. This book must remain free.

If you feel this book is worth it, you may send a donation to the author to help me widen the distribution of the paperback edition. My goal is to get it into as many libraries as possible, both public and school. I am also donating copies to various women’s organizations where they can be made available to victims of violence.

Is your boyfriend or husband unreasonably jealous? 
Define unreasonable.
Is he intrusive, accusatory and controlling?
~ Constantly accusing you of infidelity, no matter how hard you try to prove your loyalty to him… forbidding you to talk to any man for any reason…
~ Invading your privacy by reading your emails and texts…going through your purse and other belongings… allowing you no privacy, even in the bathroom…
~ Controlling your money… preventing you from spending anything on yourself… insisting your bank account is joint with his… sabotaging your job and keeping you impoverished and dependent on him…
~ Undermining your self-esteem by telling you that you are old and used up… that no other man would want you… that you are lucky to have him…
Does any of this sound familiar? If so, you could be in grave danger.
Fact: 
Every day 3 women die at the hands of an abusive partner in the USA.
Fact: 
Physical abuse often goes hand in hand with jealousy.
Jealousy is a form of mental abuse that is almost ALWAYS a precursor to physical violence. If jealousy is present in your relationship, it is a red flag that should warn you of worse things to come.

Trust me on this one. I have experience in this area.
But your relationship is different than mine was, right?
I sincerely hope it is, but I’d bet money that it isn’t.
Many people mistake jealousy for an endearing display of affection without realizing it can be a sign of something more sinister. How do you know when jealousy has crossed the line from simple affection to unhealthy obsession?
Can you fix it before it’s too late? 
You may think jealousy is a natural part of being in love, or that jealousy is a man’s way of showing how much he cares. But, what about when jealousy reaches such an extreme that you find yourself constantly under attack, accused of things you haven’t done?
How can you tell if your relationship has reached the danger point? Knowing how to recognize abnormal behavior in your partner can save you from months, even years of mental anguish. It may even save your life.
~ The Jealousy Game follows the cycle of abuse as it develops within a woman’s relationship with a jealous man, starting with subtle little displays of jealousy and culminating in a struggle between life and death.
~ Red Flags: The book provides a list of common symptoms that appear when a relationship has progressed beyond what should be considered normal. If you recognize your own relationship in any of these scenarios, it is a sign that you should consider ending it before you become traumatized, injured or even killed.
This book can be an eye-opening read for young women who are new to dating and a chilling walk down memory lane for those of us who have experienced jealousy first-hand.
Dedicated to all survivors of domestic violence; and especially to the ones who did not survive.
