Leroy Doyle, a college chemistry major and track star is on the verge of scholastic probation after flunking calculus. As he enters his sophomore year he can’t afford the distractions of having a girl friend, but that changes once he meets Jody Stinson. A chemical engineering major and the smartest student in the sophomore class, she is beautiful, arrogant, and not very happy about being forced into being his lab partner. But Leroy senses there is more to Jody than she portrays to the outside world. Her treatment of him only serves to fuel his interest and despite her barbed remarks, he strives to win her heart. 


Leroy Doyle being on scholastic probation is more than relieved when he is partnered with Jody Stinson, the difficult young lady who no one wants to work with. He is confronted with her less than eager attitude the moment he opens his mouth but there is just something about her that intrigues him. Leroy's character was so appealing and charming. He was patient, kind and understanding, everything you would want in your dream man. Jodi's character seemed complex and standoffish to others but something about Leroy's persistence made Jodi open up to him. When the story progressed, Jodi's real personality flourished. I felt like I was getting to know a whole new person. And just wait until you see the lengths that Leroy goes to in order to show Jody that he is truly one of her best friends. I cried.

Lab Partners was an exciting and heartwarming read. It was so sweet and I could really relate to the characters because they reminded me of people close to me. This was an intriguing and at times down right funny story. If you are looking for a quick, feel good read that will excite as well as entertain you, I recommend you pick up a copy of Lab Partners. I enjoy reading work by Larry Hammersley and Lab Partners is one of his best. I look forward to reading more of his work.


  1. I agree. I enjoyed reading this short story, and learning just how committed Leroy was. Beautiful.

  2. What a wonderful review and thank you S. for your kind remarks. It is encouraging to see this my earliest story is still being downloaded. I enjoyed writing this story.

  3. This sounds like such a cute read. I know how difficult women can be (since I am one) and it's nice to see a story where a man is willing to go the extra length to get through without giving up on her! I will have to add this to my TBR pile.

  4. Sounds good to me!
    Looks like something I could relate to.
    How long is it?

    ps. The price makes extra appealing too (I'm cheap)

  5. Larry, this sounds like a fun story, I'll have to go and check it out. Congratulations on this great review!
