Review: Personal Possessions By Tracy Lee

Personal Possessions:

Personal Possessions is written for Trevor. The jist of the story is the same except we see the misery he went through when Elleny broke his heart. We don't get to experience the horrors of Elleny's life but we do get to understand Trevors utter devotion and drive to become the man he is. I loved reading the history from being kids to adults knowing you've found that special someone at such a young age.  Tracy did a great job of making the story come full circle without feeling like we were re-reading the same story. 

Personal Experiences:

When I first got the file, I told myself to just read the first chapter and go from there. Four hours later I realized that I was not going to be able to stop reading. Tracy gets you gripped right off the bat with her story. As other reviews have said, it is not for the faint of heart. Personal Experiences is filled with intense love and attraction between two characters and horrific abuse both physical and sexual between a married couple. Writing about subjects or rape and abuse are hard, especially if you don’t explain both sides, both motive and pain. Tracy puts you right in there with the character and you feel every bit of emotion with them.

Elleny is the main female character who I both loved and hated. Whereas I could understand her motives and devotion to Trevor, it’s the whole I’m doing this for your benefit that gets me, but where would the story be without it. She has such a strong backbone and the fact that she is a devoted mother through and through protecting everyone, shows such courage.

Trevor is so swoon worthy and your heart breaks every time he enters a scene.
So what happens when we choose the path that would benefit others above ourselves? Well in Elleny’s case, utter devastation. Saying goodbye to her heart and soul, Trevor, was the biggest mistake of Elleny’s life, along with trusting their mutual best friend “Bear”. For 17 years, Elleny has made the best of her life with the decisions she made all those years ago. Never thinking she would see Trevor again, she is forced to work with him on a business merger between her employer and Trevor. When Trevor finds out what the real reason was behind Elleny’s betrayal and the life she needs now, Trevor will go through everyone and everything to get her back. When it proves that a man’s madness will take away everything Trevor wants, death might just prove the winner. 


Trevor McHale has tried to move on from the night that everything he cared about was ripped away from him. Having been in love with Elleny Barker since second grade, TJ comes home from college to find her married to another man…his best friend, Bear Jackson. Moving on has been nothing but a struggle for TJ. Through years and distance from his home town of Richland Georgia, Trevor ends up finding wealth, friendship and lust. But nightmares and visions plague him of a love that he knows deep down is meant to be. Finally giving in, Trevor realizes that the only way to make his life whole again is to recover what was once his and begin life anew. That turns out to be easier said than done. 
Elleny Barker-Jackson is not the same girl she was seventeen years ago. Having endured years of abuse from her husband’s hand, Elle has hardened her heart to everyone and everything. Believing that true love means nothing other than a young girl’s fantasy, Elle lives in her memories that she made with the one who will always hold her heart; Trevor McHale. Secrets and lies have been what Elle has built her life on and she is convinced that this life is her punishment for the decision that she made seventeen years ago… 
That was until Trevor McHale returned to town. Purchasing the local factory, Elle finds herself working right alongside of Trevor for eight days straight. Not only does Trevor have to convince Elle that their love is alive and strong, he has to repair the damage that has been done to her; inside and out. 
Want to know what was going through TJ's mind on everything Elle? 
Questions will be answered...Truths will be known and love will be found. TJ is on a mission to get back his Personal Possessions.

“I am a lover of chocolate, an outspoken dreamer who cannot survive without chaos! Those who truly know me can attest that I am obsessed with chocolate peanut butter anything. I write about hot, alpha men and the women who love them and the only way that I can get anything accomplished is in a crisis.
I am no good in math; as a matter of fact, I suck in math. My true love is the English language. My children are my world that not even a hot man could come between. I am originally from outside Tampa, Florida but currently reside outside Tulsa, Oklahoma. I am digging the farm animals that live behind my house.”
Tracy lives with her husband and 4 children in a small town just outside Tulsa, Ok. Originally from Brandon, Florida she was a city girl at heart. Growing tired of living in the concrete jungle she wanted a change of scenery and pace; she packed her kids up and moved to Oklahoma where she met her husband.  Now she’s seen snow, touched pigs and has cows and chickens in her back yard.
Being a stay at home mom she became an avid reader and part-time blogger, she decided to put the three of them together and try her hand at writing and fell in love. In between running kids from band practice to PTO meetings, she enjoys her “me time” working on her next book.  She thoroughly enjoys head-banging heavy metal and a kickass game of Black Ops and will be your slave if you offer her chocolate.
