|Plot Summary of All the Women I've Loved|
Pocket, May 2004, 13.00, 212 pp.
Three years together and their friends asking when, but DC TV executive LeBaron Brown is unable to pop the question to the lovely intelligent Phoenix Morgan. Disappointed since he even told their pals he will soon, Phoenix ends their relationship. Phoenix goes to Paris on business while LeBaron wonders about a French love buddy.
Not wanting to lose Phoenix yet feeling unready to marry her, LeBaron visits prominent psychotherapist Dr. Leighton Carter to gain wisdom as to when a man is ready to go down the aisle. Under gentle probing, LeBaron responds to Leighton's questions about his adventures on the wild side with a bunch of beautiful women. As he boasts about his notches he realizes that they lacked substance; he wonders if perhaps he is deficient in some sort of way because the beddings were fun yet seem irrelevant. When he rejects the advances of a former fling India, he knows he misses the times outside the boudoir with Phoenix. Will she give him a second chance if he overcomes his commitment phobia and tenders the ring?
This entertaining hunk lit tale provides a delightful story starring a wonderful cast. LeBaron holds the plot together as he comes across as real whether he refuses to commit to Phoenix or relates his past boudoir escapades. Though there has been a recent flood of male feelings novels, ALL THE WOMEN I LOVED is one of the best because it avoids the artificial inanity that grips many of these and their counterpart chick lit books. Instead the deep characterizations make for a fine tale especially observing the metamorphosis of LeBaron from a player to a thoughtful caring individual.
