Unbreak My Heart by Toni Braxton

In this heartfelt memoir, six-time Grammy Award-winning artist and star of WE TV’s reality hitBraxton Family Values, Toni Braxton writes about her personal life decisions and their impact on her health, family and career.

While Braxton appears to be living a gilded life—selling 60 million records, appearing in sold-out Las Vegas performances and hit shows like Dancing with the Stars, and starring in her own reality series—hers is in fact a tumultuous story, a tale of triumph over a life filled with obstacles, including two bankruptcy filings. The mother of an autistic child, Braxton long feared that her son’s condition might be karmic retribution for earlier life choices, some of which will shock fans. But when heart ailments began plaguing her at the age of 41 and she was diagnosed with Lupus, Braxton knew she had to move beyond the self-recrimination and take charge of her own healing. Intensely honest and deeply inspirational, Unbreak My Heart is the never-before-told story of the measures Braxton took to make herself and her family whole again.

I understand that everyone wants to write a book and get their story told, but some people should just leave it alone. I say this as my first sentence to this review because Toni Braxton should leave the storytelling to celebrities who actually want to share something the public does not already know. If you watch Braxton Family Values or have the internet, then this book will be a complete snoozefest for you.

On a bright note, it was neat that I knew of some of places Toni talked about during her childhood since I currently live near her hometown. There was nothing technically wrong with Unbreak My Heart, except the fact that it was boring. The general public already knew about her bankruptcies and all of that stuff, but what I wanted was the juicy stuff like what happened between Jason Kidd, Jimmy Jackson, and her. The best thing I can say about Unbreak My Heart is that it was fast to read.

DISCLAIMER: I received a complimentary copy of Unbreak My Heart in exchange for an honest review.

    Well I have been reading parts on her app and its really good. I am a Hugh Toni fans and ppl tend to make up fake stories about her and listen to bogs which are wrong 95% of the times, well her writing a book tell her side, therefore internet is not factual, especially blogs, and reality show is a hour. The book is very interesting from what I read so far.

    • I truly appreciate your comment and your opinion. I too am a fan of her music, but there was nothing disclosed in this book that haven’t heard her say in interviews and/or her family’s tv show. I do hope that you will enjoy the book once it is released!!!
