“When We Love” is story particularly any woman can relate to as it’s what they truly want in a relationship. Young women are suspicious about guys as they believe all they basically want is to get them in bed for, as you might suspect, for sex. And as for guys their suspicion is that all women are only interested in how much money they’ve got.
Once both believe they’ve at long last found their soulmates things on occasion change drastically, and their so-called one-time wondrous relationships has hit rock-bottom, and if it ends they’ve got a tendency to become “shell-shocked” about entering into any new relationships since neither wants to be hurt again. Such is the case with Lauren and Hank.
Both of these characters need to fill the void in their lives, and when they first meet they sense something about each which might make their lives once again complete. For Hank, Lauren’s a refreshing change from all the other women as she’s apparently only interested in the man he is, and nothing else. However, he’s slow in accepting her love due to all the negatives he’d experience from his ex and the other women he’s seen. And then there’s the possible threat from his ex, who’s still lurking around in the background trying to insure he can’t find the happiness he seeks.
For Lauren, she got over her past sooner than Hank and began to open up to him, but he need more time to do the same so he can accept Lauren for the wonderful, caring person she is.
Lauren’s “well-meaning” actions create problems she didn’t need or wanted. In the end she learns a life changing lesson regarding relationships and this thing we call love; which is why I loved the very appropriate title she has given her novella and why I’m giving this endeavor 5 STARS.
