***image2***Meet Norris Brownell, management consultant.  Norris is overweight and convinced that she's not doing as well in her business as she could because of her weight problem.  She convinces herself that her troubles are just about over when she sees her best friend, Kendra, for the first time in ages.

Norris is aghast, envious at the changes in Kendra.  She is now radiant, her body svelte and her attitude is fantastic.  Norris wants details.  Kendra tries to dissuade her with tales of how she sometimes cried because the demanding pace of the program was so tough, both physically and emotionally.  Norris swears that she can handle anything if it'll get her looking as good.  She feels that it will make her more marketable and gain new clients for her business.  Kendra explains that the place she went to takes only a few referrals at one time.  She'll see what she can do.

Norris, invitation in hand, enters the reception area on the top floor of a high-rise.  She's interviewed by the director of the program and counseled about how she must decide whether or not she's willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done.  Norris says that she'll try.  The director says that trying isn't good enough.  She hands Norris the contract to sign.  Norris notices a particular statement about accepting all instructions and discipline without complaints.  The woman tells her that it means exactly what it says.  She's either committed to losing the weight and changing her whole attitude or she can leave.  Norris signs the contract.

Her trainer, Adrian, isn't anything like she expected.  After a rocky start, he begins her training.  She learns discipline, but not quite the kind she had in mind.  Part of the discipline training is along the lines one would learn while training to become another person's submissive.

Who is this man, and why is he the one training her?  What is he trying to prove as he takes Norris through her difficult journey?  Follow along as Norris enters her SWEET DISCIPLINE, hoping to attain the weigh she covets and maybe a little love.

Bonnie Hamre has taken two forms of discipline and turned them into an amusing and sometimes heart-wrenching story.  You'll cheer Norris along; you'll even want to cry when she becomes so frustrated with the process she's undergoing, both mentally and physically.  At times you'll want to strangle both Adrian and her. 

This is for the keeper shelf.  I highly recommend it.
