Publisher's Summary

Tina Turner - the long-reigning queen of rock & roll and living legend - sets the record straight about her illustrious career and complicated personal life in this eye-opening and compelling memoir. 

From her early years in Nutbush, Tennessee, to her rise to fame alongside Ike Turner to her phenomenal success in the 1980s and beyond, Tina candidly examines her personal history, from her darkest hours to her happiest moments and everything in between. 

My Love Story is an explosive and inspiring story of a woman who dared to break any barriers put in her way. Emphatically showcasing Tina’s signature blend of strength, energy, heart, and soul, this is a gorgeously wrought memoir as enthralling and moving as any of her greatest hits.

Great story but...

It's interesting, well written, just what you'd expect of Tina, but the narrator... She overemphasizes every other word, makes it really hard to focus on the story. Can it be re-narrated by someone else? Or even by the same person after giving her some chamomile tea or something?

This memoir is wonderful. Thank you, Tina

Fabulously written, insightful and candid. Love it!! But the narrator was overly dramatic. We can ascertain Ms. Turner’s strength and character without her distracting inflection. Wish I read the book and not listened.

Lines In The Sand. Conditional love.

Superb narration. Maybe some hardcore fans wanted to hear Tina Turner's voice. No excuse to unjustly condemn the narrator. She is very good. Fabulous even. I read Tina Turner's first book and saw the movie about her. Probably because as a mediator I was offered a job by a music producer, to go on the road to supervise Ike Turner so the producer could close a music deal. As Ike Turner was otherwise uninsurable without a babysitter. I declined. The only challenge I ever backed down from in my life. I don't think I am the only one, as the tour never launched. So, I did have some personal curiosity. This book, as well as her first, and the movie about her life, is about people drawing lines in the sand. Boundaries. Either from an unwillingness to experience others or from personal issues with tolerance. Ike Turner drew lines in the sand. Tina Turner then drew her own lines in the sand to rise above his. So did I even. Then she drew her own lines in the sand with her own children and stepchildren. It was not easy to know about the limitations placed upon her which were oppressive. And to experience sideways as a spectator, how she rose above them. Only to hear at the end she herself her drew lines in the sand with her own children and stepchildren. But it is a good lesson to observe and know where you will or not, draw lines in the sand with others, as they have been drawn in the sand for yourself. And, if you agree to this kind of social mathematics, how they work for everyone and their own tolerance of others. The book is a good life lesson for summoning up your own abilities to draw lines in the sand to survive. But it is also a good way to become aware of your own lines in the sand, you impose on others. Conditional love. Tina Turner for sure is a force of nature. Standing Ovation!

My Buddhist sister and friend.

This story was extremely important because it shared the most intimate details of our Dear Tina's life. I am chanting for Tina's victory in all affairs. Nam myoho renge kyo!

OK story, terrible narrator

The narrator was pain to listen to. Too many unnecessary and inappropriate exaggerations that I was even thinking of quitting listening and buying the hard copy or Kindle.

Fascinating story, so-so narration

When I first heard about this memoir, quickly submitted my preorder. I wish I would have waited until the release date and listened to the preview. The narrator's cadence distorted the meaning of the text. From beginning to end, I had to restate the sentences in my head while listening to this book. It was painfully obvious that someone else was reading this book.

I have listened to other memoirs, not read by the author, with narration that was so engaging and consistent with the author's style that I believed the author telling their own story. My favorite examples are "Universal Tone" by Carlos Santana, read by Johnathan Davis, "Sing To Me..." by LA Reid, read by Dion Graham, and "My Life With Earth Wind and Fire", by Maurice White, read by Dion Graham.

If you have a choice between the print version and Audible, GET THIS BOOK IN PRINT! At some point I will probably by a hard copy so "hear" Tina tell her love story in my mind.

Love every bit of it!

A great love story! The funniest and most memorable part of the book is when Tina asks Erwin to make love to her when he comes to America and when he did he didn't call her back for months! LOL
I also found her story of triumph over her many ailments in her later years and her renewed love story with her husband when he gave her the gift of life via his kidney as REMARKABLE.
The saddest part of the book is when she shared how her son took his own life with "Ma" gun. Just heartbreaking :(

Powerful story

I was very moved by the movie “what’s Love got to do with it “. It gave me hope when I was in a difficult place. This book was a more intimate look into the rest of the story & recent major life altering health challenges. The narrator fell short for me, it lacked Tina’s deep unique voice & laugh. It would have been great to hear her tell her love story
