This book was published in 1979 and is of interest as a aspect of Elvis' story. I bought it because I read something written by Martin Torgoff and he is a good writer. I had previously thought it likely that this book was a just another sensational story, but it wasn't. Is is though, the story of the Stanley boys and Dee Stanley and as such is not an objective account. Dee comes across to me as a confused, complicated and not very likeable woman. Her recounting of her relationship with Elvis and some of her accounts of Vernon Presley do not accord with others I have read but who knows what goes on behind closed doors. In this book Dee is prepared to tell all and Martin Torgoff writes about her sympathetically. I found the account of three young boys who suddenly found themselves close to a charasmatic superstar who they could now call their 'brother' to be very interesting and touching. It's not hard to imagine how star struck they became especially when they were in receipt of Elvis' ledgendary generosity. That they went off the rails is a fact and you will decide for yourself how this happened. Dee blames Elvis and is also unforgiving that the boys were not included in Elvis' will.

What a surprise 20 Oct. 2007
By Charliedee - Published on
Format: Paperback
For a woman who first wrote a very scathing tell-all about the stepson she detested (which fortunately was rejected by publishers) it's surprising that she writes a book about Elvis and calls it: 'Elvis, We Love You Tender'?

All you need to know here is Dee tried for ... 10 Aug. 2014
By Ed Williams - Published on
Format: Paperback
All you need to know here is Dee tried for Elvis first, then settled for Vernon. Two events that speak to Dee's character and Vernon's intelligence.

corrections 5 Dec. 2014
By . - Published on
Format: Hardcover
A couple of corrections to commin press errors: 1/Dee wasn't 5 years older than Elvis, she was 10 years older. 2/Vernon wasn't 52 when he married Dee, he was 44. Thus, in 1960 there was a fairly-normal 9-year age difference between them, not the often-repeated 23-year difference. For what it's worth.

Not Bad 17 Jun. 2014

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It wasn't a bad read, though I have definitely read better. I just question the authenticity of what was written.
