Overview

Monica, a determined social climber, wants all the finer things in life. And she will stop at nothing to have it. Problem is she doesn't care about the people she has to step on to get there, including her boyfriend, Kendall.

After graduating from high school, Tamara follows her boyfriend to live in a new city with the hopes he will soon propose marriage. Within a matter of months, Tamara learns she is pregnant and her boyfriend has secretly been involved with another woman. When he moves out, Tamara feels betrayed and desperate enough to seek revenge.

Barron feels trapped in a marriage of convenience. His controlling and manipulative wife makes more money than him, therefore she rules the nest. Dissatisfied with his life, Barron sets out to establish a relationship with the son he abandoned, against his wife's wishes.

Missed Opportunities illustrates how these true-to-life characters must face the consequences of their poor choices. Was each decision worth the opportune cost? LaTonya Y. Williams delivers yet another account of love, lies, and deceit all wrapped up into one powerful novel.

    Never Again

    This book was a complete waste of my time. It only got somewhat better towards the end. I was so frustrated reading this book and couldn't wait for it to be over. I realized from probably the 5th page that I wasn't going to like the book. I started wondering if there was a point to the book at all...I have yet to figure out if there was a point.

    A Best Seller

    I finished Missed Opportunities in one setting. It was a page-turner. I enjoyed the characters, Monica, Tamara, Darla and Brandy. Monica was the best character for me. I had a lot in common with her, of course. The book was real and based on reality about the way men dog you, and the women who let them dog you. It was also a friendship book, and we don't find too many friends in this modern world today. Each character contributed their joys and pains, and I was rooting for a happily ever after ending. I was thrilled that Ms. Williams portrayed overweight women with confidence. This was the perfect book for me and I can't wait to read more from this very talented, and for real author. She is the best in my book. I am checking out her other books. Ms. Williams is a brilliant storyteller, and she has a talent to be praised. I am her biggest fan.

    A MUST READ FOR EVERYONE

    I read this book in all of 2 days it was that good. I must say this was the kind of book where I could see myself in the characters especially Monica. Spellbinding is the best way to describe this book in the way this author shows how you can miss out on the best in your life when you dont recognize the signs. Keep doing your thing you have a new fan.
