Does the world really need another self-help book about finding love?

Former Bachelorette Andi Dorfman doesn’t think so. Her new book, It’s Not Okay: Turning Heartbreak into Happily Never After, is a tell-all “anti-self-help-book” in which the star opens up about what happened after the Bachelorette cameras stopped rolling – and she found herself engaged to a man she had known for barely two months.

Dorfman and ex-fiancé Josh Murray, who became engaged on the Season 10 finale of The Bachelorette in 2014, endured a very public split just eight months after their “happily ever after” was nationally televised.

Now, more than a year later, Dorfman is gearing up to release a tell-all that will take readers behind the scenes of her split with Murray, as well as her experiences on both The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.

It’s Not Okay was conceived from the personal diary that I kept while dealing with a very public breakup. I wanted to candidly share my struggles after I realized that though everyone experiences heartbreak, they rarely talk about it,” Dorfman tells PEOPLE. “With this book, people will be able to see what heartbreak truly looks like; for better or worse and more importantly that through the tears, anger and even hopelessness, comes strength and new beginnings.”

It’s Not Okay is due out mid-May.
