Book Description

**Please Note: For mature readers. Contains sexual situations and strong language**

We all have had our fair share of bad relationships and lost ourselves along the way. Our self-beliefs often dictate our reality and we therefore attract into our lives our limitations in the form of experiences, people and environments and continue to do so until we become self-aware of the repetitive behavior.

This book is for people who often ask themselves “why do I attract the wrong relationships” or “why do I attract people in my life that can’t be exclusive to me” or you often believe that there is something wrong with you. I can tell you that there is nothing wrong with you because I have been there and through a lot of soul searching and reading, I realized that it was up to me to change my old self-beliefs to new beliefs and create a new reality which in turn became my new life. This book will take you on a journey of Katrina’s life. It is a two part series and it shows how we often are blinded by the truth

Katrina Michaels is a forty year old woman who is obsessed with pleasure; the more she gets, the more she wants. Her world revolves around seductive sexual experiences that give her the high she craves. Katrina is involved in a tumultuous affair with Mark, a married man, and soon finds herself way in over her head. During their wild and secret sexcapades, the heat of their affair builds to a fever pitch. Through the explosive climax of the affair, she learns who she is and that a hard look in the mirror can reflect an image that can be hard to stomach.

In book one, Katrina’s desire is to get attention and she walks, talks, and dresses to ensure that she receives exactly what she wants. With her late night party lifestyle and a drinking habit, she is a woman on the edge of completely losing the shred of control she has left.

As Katrina spirals further out of control, she is faced with many situations that cause her to realize that she is screwing up her life. At first, she couldn't care less, because she cannot see that she is doing anything wrong. To Katrina, life is all about fun, sex, and no responsibility. She uses men and her body to gain what she wants.

Through this steamy novel, readers are taken along on Katrina's journey of self-discovery. They experience what she experiences and feel her every emotion. They see that she cannot be her true self and that her world is a plastic bubble that she has created to keep others out. Her greatest fear is that someone will see the real her and she will be rejected and devastated.

An inattentive business owner, Katrina spends way too much to impress others. She is in a deficit in every aspect of her life, but does not seem to realize it. When she faces losing everything, she must make some painful decisions. Will Katrina continue down the road to self-destruction or will she finally see that she has more value than just her pretty face and sexy body?

5.0 out of 5 stars Provocative! More than just a sexy story. September 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a well written story that uses the medium of sexuality to draw you in and hold your attention, but as it plays out, seems to carry with it a higher motive. There is a message here that for those who want and care to find it can provoke a change in self-respect that will far exceed the passion of the eroticism.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Book Is Wake Up Call September 23, 2012
By Karen
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book describes very clearly the male/female behavior and thinking that is status quo for a domination/submission context of life. If a person is in denial within their relationships, reading this well written characterization will most certainly bring patterns up to the surface. One good point that is exposed is how unconscious choices made by Katrina resulted in effects that were radically not in her best interests-and she lost her business as a result. There is always a price to be paid for abdicating one's power, life force and self-authority. I'm looking forward to part II in hopes that Kartrina continues with her transformational journey into authentic self-empowerment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Structured Advice in Successful Relationships September 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a book that shows where beliefs can create your reality in functional relationships. I am personally not into sexual scenes but I did pick up some valuable pointers for my own situation, mainly how not to attract destructive relationships; that when one does step into vulnerability, the magic within a relationship can happen. The flip side is that there are two sides to all romantic relationships, his and hers. Good advice through a combination of stories compiled together. I recommend this book as a good buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Needed this book 10 years ago. September 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Glad I never had to be dependent on someone to take care of me. The writer created a great story that gives the insight of so many women that I have known and wonder why they could not just fined true love. Instead they kept making the wrong choices, chasing the wrong men for the wrong reasons and making their lives a living hell!! Will be suggesting this book to all of them in hopes they will get a clue.I am so glad that I am a man!

5.0 out of 5 stars BRAVO! September 20, 2012
By Mark L
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I actually purchased this book as a gift for a friend because I thought it might help her with her current situation. After purchasing it I became curious and decided to read it for myself, and I am GLAD that I did. The author does an outstanding job at telling a story that I am sure a large number of people will be able to relate to. The sex scenes are all well written and I found that once I started to read the book that I could not put it down. I highly recommend that you buy this book!

This writer has a serious message to impart and is attempting to lift others with life lessons about love and self respect. That's a subject matter that everyone can relate to; male and female.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not My Genre But Beautifully Done September 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I wasn't sure that I really wanted to read Mary's book as it is not my particular interest but because I am fascinated by her other work, because of the support material we share at We Wise Women [...] I thought I would give it a go. She writes extremely well and I found myself reading to the end - quite something when statistics says most books are not read past the first 10%. If you don't already know women like Katrina you will certainly recognise them by the end, and hopefully find empathy for them, in understanding the mask they have locked themselves within.

More About the Author

Mary Henderson, has had over 18 years of experience in the media advertising sector. Her immense career began in media advertising sales and led her to executive roles that only helped to further foster her keen eye for sales and marketing strategies and a genuine passion for business relations.

In 2011, Mary launched her life-long dream of becoming an author after reading Dr.Candice Pert's book, Molecules of Emotion. The book so profoundly changed her, that she felt it her duty to share with the rest of the world, the power of how our mind and body connections affect our life's journeys.
With so many useless self-help books out on the market, Mary made a conscious decision to become a trailblazer by using both works of fiction and reference works to speak to both the heart and mind so that the connection of learning and understanding could become complete. She did not want her books to sit dusty on coffee tables, but to be used to change lives.

Mary is a writer who knows how to relate to her audience. She writes stories that draw the reader in and allow them to realize why they relate to the characters and how they too can make a change in their lives for the better.
Writing is very much a cathartic experience for Mary. Through her vast knowledge of mind and body connections, she is able to give the help that many so desperately need in such a way that they can truly understand and then put into action.

Mary Henderson has a heart for her readers and knows the struggles that they face because she once faced them as well. In learning the process of EFT and Chakra cleansing, Mary is now free to share her wisdom with others who are still stuck in a life that they are not happy with.
As Mary continues further into her career of writing, she plans to continue exploring subjects that help her readers to face who they are and understand why. Her books are passionate and forward-thinking. She is an author with a hope-driven purpose that is unstoppable.
