1. That book makes me sad as a person

I am even sadder that so many people are not insulted by the terrible writing and normalization of domestic abuse.

2. You are of course, absolutely right. However, this 72 year-old woman literally laughed out loud.

It is so grotesque in so many ways my only reaction was to laugh...sigh..

4. I started the book, and couldn't get more than a few pages into it.

It is the Harlequin Books version of S&M, plus the writing is atrocious.
Leafing through, to see if it was uniformly as bad as I thought, I read stuff like "my mind laughed at me" or something like that.

5. Think of all the great opening lines in books

"I scowl with frustration at myself in the mirror. Damn my hair - it just won't behave" is nowhere near that list.
