OFFICIAL REVIEW - INVOLVED WITH A CAD FOR 7 YEARS IN THE TWILIGHT ZONE
By Fabulous Mind
[Following is an official OnlineBookClub.org review of "Involved with a Cad for 7 Years in the Twilight Zone" by Darlene Nolin.]
One-sided love can be a great weapon of manipulation. It can be a tool to use a person to achieve hidden goals and eventually dump them later. This is a message this book intends to pass, as the author, Darlene Nolin, tells her story of a failed marriage, betrayal, deceit, and abuse in the hands of her ex-foreign national spouse.
Nolin and Victor's (A name she used in place of her ex-husband's real name) relationship started on Facebook with a friend request. Blinded by Victor's charms and sweet nature towards her, Nolin falls in love with him and their relationship progresses. After they got married, Nolin, eventually, finds out that Victor isn't who he portrays himself to be, but rather, a manipulator, a preditor, liar, and a financial abuser who solely depends on her to survive and whose aim is to get a green card and dump her. She goes through a series of trauma and health problems as their relationship progresses. Will Nolin find the courage to leave this man she once loved?
Involved with a Cad for 7 Years in the Twilight Zone was a short and exciting read. The author revealed details of every event that took place throughout her relationship with her ex-husband. I enjoyed the author's writing style, as it was great and entertaining. On several occasions, when she wants to describe something, she would cite an example, either from a movie character or from a book. An example was her description of Victor's mother, whom she named Norman Bates’s mother from the movie, "Psycho".
Also, I liked how informative this book was. It gave a platform for her to share her own story so people can learn from her experience, detect fraudulent signs, and prevent themselves from being victims of marriage fraud.
I enjoyed this book, as it was edited professionally, and I see no reason to deduct a star. Therefore, I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars. Finding the right audience to recommend this book was a bit difficult. Nevertheless, I would recommend this book to single ladies and people who want to get into a relationship with foreigners who they know little or nothing about.

Involved with a Cad for 7 Years in the Twilight Zone

The book was a great read. The author started by raising key points about immigration through marriage in the United States and certain dangers it poses. She claimed that it's the fastest way for anyone to become a USA citizen not minding the motive of these foreigners. She further buttressed her points by telling the stories of two American citizens who had become victims to these aliens who hide under marriage to get what they want (green cards) but later abuse their partners. She stated concerns as to how their partners still have their legal status preserved despite being reported.
This laid a platform for her to tell her story on how she was being lied to and manipulated to live with a man who claims to love her but was only after her money and American citizenship. Nolin left a highly developed country to come to live with her ex-husband in a place that looks like a third world. Her ex never worked, was lazy, and depends on her for even the food they ate. It was during all these processes that she passes through life-threatening health issues such as stroke and appendicitis. She survived and pulled through. It was after her husband's travel that she learns the truth about him, his cheating nature, and eventually, pulls out of the marriage.
In the last part, Nolin wrote that her ex-husband wanted her to forget what happened between them, so they can be friends again. She replied by sending him some break-up music. Nolin stated how he blew up his chances with her and labeled him a narcissist. She advised people on how to handle narcissist. In her words: "Individuals with Narcissistic and sociopathic characteristics will give you a crash course on how to recognize the truth when words and actions don’t match. All you have to do is listen and pay attention."
I liked how this book ended. Although I felt she should have left the relationship earlier, especially, when Victor started demanding her to speak to him on Skype every time just to monitor her moves. Also, when she was in the hospital, and didn't get enough care from him. However, I loved how she ended their marriage by filing a divorce on valentine's Day and leaving for America on their sixth wedding anniversary. This book ended well because she was able to give tips on how to avoid men who behave like her ex-husband, and also, a lot of people will learn from her mistakes.
UNSCRUPULOUS LOVE UNDONE * * * * *
Before you experience a similar mistake, JUST STOP RIGHT THERE!
Seriously, be forewarned that unscrupulous men who deliberately manipulate such humiliating relationships in the name of love, have created just as much hell as described in Darlene Nolin's story INVOLVED WITH A CAD FOR 7 YEARS IN THE TWILIGHT ZONE.
A true-life experience of being disrespected by the very man that is supposed to love you - your husband.
I found this well written non-fiction experience a 5 star read, duplicating situations that has happened to both my mother, as well as my daughter.
The whole time I read this book, I felt that just becoming aware that such a con is possible, could inspire women of the world to realize they could save themselves, or their loved ones by having the strength to terminate such a disrespectful relationship, and not being afraid to seek help.
