Micro Review: A flowing river of sensual and sexualised thought as the protagonist jeopardises her 12-year marriage to explore her coming-out-of-hibernation sexuality. The writing is a kind of incisive ‘stream of consciousness come internal monologue’ conveying with poignancy the woman’s feelings so we empathise with her, even when she’s treading a dangerous line of deception and adultery.
Description: Junior college professor Charlotte Bannon has been faithfully married for 12 years. Her husband Tommy is a good lover, and a great guy, and to the best of her knowledge, Charlotte loves him. But a brief encounter at a wedding has destroyed Charlottes feelings of satisfaction. Soon she cheats on her husband with a complete stranger, and to her surprise, knows that she will again. Charlotte cannot even feel guilt over her affairs. Something is wrong inside Charlotte, and she cannot understand what it could be. Missy is a student at a junior college, and works part time at a lingerie shop. She married Bruce too young, and now wants to know what she is missing. When Charlotte enters her store with hushed tales of forbidden encounters, Missy is seduced. The redheaded professor and the young brunette become allies, and more, in their erotic quest to uncover their hidden motivations while exploring the lives they both know they have been missing. But is Missy really like Charlotte? Or are Charlottes motivations much deeper and more fundamental than Missys?Amazon
