    BIG FAN

    I am a big fan of Zane and anything with her name on it will be purchased by me. Usually she is known for her sexy stories but this book has turned the tables. Various authors have written short stories on the abuse that many individuals suffer from in a relationship and it is a must read....an eye opener for some who may be encoutering such matters or going through the same.

    GOOD BOOK

    This was a good book. I have always been a reader of Zane's books. I really did not know what to expect, I'm really not a reader of short stories. They always seem like the story is unfinshed. I was proven wrong, Zane did a good job by choosing some good authors. keep up the good work.

    Riveting

    Breaking The Cycle, edited by Zane, is a collection of eight stories that deal with the topic of domestic violence. The distinctive voice of each of the contributing authors provides a different twist to this troubling subject. Zane starts the anthology with a story of a teenage girl who is determined to break the cycle despite her mother's reluctance. I was fascinated by the writing style of J.L. Woodson who wrote, God Does Answer Prayers from the perspective of a young boy who is an accidental victim of domestic violence. The young protagonist tells the story while hovering between life and death in a hospital room. The Break of Dawn by Coleen Dixon had a surprise ending that left me stunned. Shonda Cheekes boldly reveals an aspect of domestic violence that many people are unaware of. The horror of abuse depicted in The Stranger by Tracy Price-Thompson just kept escalating. Each author is to be commended for not only exposing the many facets of domestic violence but for also offering a solution to break the cycle. The resources found at the end of the book is an invaluable tool for anyone seeking help. Kudos to Zane for taking the chance to step outside the erotica genre to shed some light on this serious issue.
