A ballplayer's girlfriend hides his daughter from him because she fears he's like his abusive father.

Brock Carter's back in town to rekindle his romance with Marcia, and this time, he's not letting her run him out of town. Marcia is unable to resist Brock, but determined to keep her secret.

My Comments

Hi, I'm the author of Playing Without Rules. This story deals with the consequences of domestic violence and abuse, especially from a male point of view. Many times, we don't understand the struggles of men who have been abused, and we easily type cast them with the suspicion that they will repeat the patterns of their father. Yes, statistically, this is very prevalent, and these men are highly at risk to become abusers themselves.

However with counseling, early intervention, and the refusal of a partner to tolerate any "shade" of abuse, including emotional, men who have been abused can learn patterns of behavior to avoid triggering either flashbacks and feelings of unworthiness, or the urge to inflict pain on others.

I hope this book raises awareness of men caught between the jaws of being a victim and a survivor of abuse.
