Overview

Boxed set of five of Tonya Thomas's women's fiction short stories.

TRAPPED IN AN ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIP
Amy Reynolds thought she had a great boyfriend, until one by one all her freedoms began to disappear. When her job is threatened, Amy decides it’s time to become more independent. But that’s not how her boyfriend Brad feels. He’s likes things the way they are and will go to any length to keep it that way.

LIFE ON THE PERPETUAL DIET
Emily as always had a problem with her weight. Yo-yo dieting was something she’d accepted as part of her life. But when an opportunity arrives to expand her horizons, she leaps at the chance. That brings her a new income source and a chance at love. But when her new significant other plots to keep her fat--and unattractive to other men--she objects. And then she meets a man with the ability to sweep her off her feet. Will she give up everything she thought she wanted or will she cling to the vows she made when she said “I do”?

MARRIED IN HASTE
Jennifer has always been a wallflower, so when Mike Palmer flatters her—and asks her out—she feels on top of the world. But Mike's a sports nut, and soon Jennifer feels like she's playing second fiddle to every sport televised. Her ultimatum has Mike reconsidering their relationship. Soon their dates are fun and fulfilling. Without telling a soul they elope, and then Jennifer’s problems really begin when she discovers the man she thought she’d known is almost a complete stranger.

THE EYES THAT HAUNT ME
One hot September afternoon, Annie Henderson's life changed forever. That was the day she was raped. Nine months later, she gave up the daughter she'd conceived on that terrible day. Forging a new life was difficult, but Annie had a successful military career and then had a family. Life was good, until the daughter she gave up reenters her life, and threatens to ruin it forever.

THE LUXURY TRAP
Erica came from a large family and always had to work hard for everything in life. Then she met Donovan Whitmore—the man of her dreams who could give her everything she ever wanted. Only … it turned out Donovan worked just as hard as Erica—-maybe harder. And then everything she always wanted wasn’t nearly enough.

    I received this box set from the author for an honest review. Little did I know how amazing all these short stories would affect me. Each has a true life meaning behind them and each one has a lifetime of advice. If you like stories that feel real and well written this is for you. It doesn't take long to read but when you do you will enjoy them all. Maybe if you are in the situation of one of these people being written about then you might like the advice given.

    Five interesting journeys... Here we meet five different woman,

    Five interesting journeys... Here we meet five different woman, each with a story to share with how they dealt with the negative influences in their lives. Emily, Annie, Jennifer, Erica & Amy all have different stories, but each finds the strength within themselves to leave behind the abuse that surrounded them... some with the help of friends, family, or coworkers... others by truly seeing what has been going on around them and wanting better. You go along each woman's story and follow along to see things go from dark to light.
    What a collection! These five stories come to life through the author's words. I turned page after page to see what would come about next. I enjoyed seeing how these everyday women truly find themselves and leave the negative behind!
