Sabrina is a widow. The love of her life suffered from testicular cancer, and as it had metastasized he died a relatively young man. Sabrina's only wish that never came true was the fact they never had any babies.
Bob, in his research, had received a suggestion from one of his previous interviewees that even though Sabrina was a widow she was so similar to her husband in looks that it would be justified.
So he did.
And as all love stories should have a happy ending, Sabrina marries Bob, and becomes very good friends with all of Bob's very pregnant women. And decides that Bob should, nay must continue his exceptionally successful therapy, even with his sister, and her lover.
Bob Lubrican has a way with words turning everyday people into lovers par excellence. He is one of my favorite Authors.
In this 8th (and apparently, last) story in BOB's "The Master's Project", we get to meet Sabrina, a widowed woman about 10 years older than Bob. She's statuesque, buxom, and absolutely beautiful. She has Bob flustered from the beginning, and then they kiss. But how will she deal with the women that have come before her?
The sex in this story was quite good, but many of the scenes were just blurbs about what happened. If the author had spelled them all out, this would have been an excessive work, so what he has done worked best for the story. I don't consider it great stroke, but it was good stuff.
The story itself is wonderful. The great sidebars where Bob fills us in on his thoughts and foreshadows, were priceless. Of all of the stories in this series, this was wrapped the tightest.
Technically, no major flaws jumped out at me. The story flowed well, and the few run-on sentences were BOB's trademark "My mind has shut down and I am babbling inside my own head" type.
I really enjoyed this last episode. Sabrina was a joy, and her ability to flumox Bob was just fun reading. Her ability to work with Bob on their relationship was something I liked.
If you haven't read the previous 7 stories of this series, don't read this one. Each of the other 7 couples/groupings turn up in this story, and without having their individual stories understood, a lot will be missed. Having said that, if you haven't read the previous 7, what where you thinking????
I highly recommend the crowning jewel of a great series.
Kudos, BOB! Thanks for sharing!
