Once and For All
Tagline: Tim had a feeling Amy was "the one," but he just couldn't tell her what was in his heart...
In a Nutshell: Tim is your typical young man, playing the field, not really looking for love, so when he meets Amy, he's a bit blindsided. Suddenly shy, he bumbles his approach a couple of times before she finally takes matters into her own hands.
Observations: The appeal of this story for me was the intimate telling of it from the hero's point of view. It was cute to see his paradigm shift from the type of woman he'd always been attracted to, to someone more like you and me, since I've never been a head-turner, tall or athletic! LOL
There was a bit of a black moment as his sister--sort of a quasi villain in this story--says maybe the universe is trying to tell him something. But our hero ignores her.
We also get an epilogue paragraph in which we find out how it all turned out: wedding, starter home and a baby on the way.
Not your typical Woman's World story, but well within the tone and style of the magazine. Well done.
