Tammy has been lusting after Lydia for ages. They attend the same gym and Tammy makes sure she’s there when Lydia goes. Lydia recently turned forty and has realized that there’s more to life than a career. She’s aware of Tammy’s interest in her and decides it would be good to get to know Tammy better and see what develops.

Damaris has loved Larnie for a long time, but Larnie’s unwilling to commit to a true relationship. They end up joining the gym together, and Larnie’s very nervous about taking this step.

Will these women deny what’s in their hearts or will they find love?

Have you ever seen a stranger smile in public and wondered what he or she was thinking?

The descriptions in this short story captured my attention immediately. Ms. Brown’s ability to quickly create a realistic background and interesting characters made it easy for me to keep reading. I was especially intrigued by the quirky menu at the coffee shop where two of the characters meet for a date. Small details like this one made it easy for me to imagine exactly what was going on.

Some of the dialogue and descriptive phrases in certain scenes were a little wordy at times due to the use of multiple words with similar meanings. Other sentences used colloquial terms that never seemed to quite fit in with what I’d learned about the characters’ personalities so far. It would have been helpful for this reader to have a few more clues if these words and phrases were purposefully used in order to flesh out the characters’ personalities.

The chemistry between both couples is strong. I particularly enjoyed Tammy and Lydia’s scenes at the beginning of this tale due to the slow, steady buildup of sexual tension. While I don’t know if the author plans to write more about the characters in the future, I would be interested in revisiting them if she does.

Women in Love is good choice for anyone in the mood for something short and unique. This was my first introduction to Ms. Brown’s work, and it is something I’d recommend to anyone else who hasn’t given her a try yet either.
