If Dream Man never comes knocking, at least she’ll own the door. That’s 28-year-old paralegal Karen’s new plan, anyhow, to buy her own home, and the reason she’s been working every weekend-- until she bends to her best friend’s pressure to spend a Saturday at the wave pool. Determined not to be derailed by another dead-end relationship, she avoids looking at the cute curly-haired guy—his friends call him Spence-- carousing out in the waves. But the tide turns as she’s caught unaware, a wave pool virgin on her first time in, and swept into a head-on collision with one of his friends. When she manages to stand and open her eyes, the world has disappeared. She sees only Spence surrounded by dancing stars. Has she been knocked silly, or is he gazing right back at her?
Hunks in trunks, warm sand, sunshine, wave pools and drama. Bikini-clad curves, sun-block lotion and female fantasies, Beverly Bretton provides all of this and more in her short story, Stars In Her Eyes.
Thirty-year-old Karen’s goals may have changed direction recently, but a chance meeting after an accident redirects her dreams once more.
In a few pages Ms Bretton provides a well-rounded and charming tale full of main and secondary characters that are skilfully woven together in a series of events that changes Karen’s destiny. In a short space of time she presents several well-rounded characters all of whom we could relate to at some point in our lives, and does it with a wonderful touch of humour.
