Her tiny black bikini will hopefully provide the perfect prop to seduce him.

Read an Excerpt

By the time I settled in, the sun was starting to set and a long line was forming behind me. There were people everywhere; the excitement in the air was palpable. The line just so happened to include an amazingly cute young guy about three people away from me, wearing a faded band T-shirt from the last tour that went through town. By the look of him, I figured he couldn’t be more than 22 or 23. Doing the math in my head, he must have been in high school when the last tour happened.

He looked up from his sleeping bag and smiled at me. He was one of the few in line who didn’t have a tent with him, content to rough it with his worn-out sleeping bag and a backpack. I watched him create his space, taking in his skinny but muscled frame as he moved. He reminded me so much of a boy I had been mad for in high school, right down to the glasses and faded, ripped jeans. The cute ass didn’t hurt his cause either. He caught me staring, peeking at me over his shoulder. Blushing at being busted, I made a note of how blue his eyes were before I went back into my tent. I felt a little guilty looking at a young guy that way, but I couldn’t help it. Being almost 40 didn’t turn off my libido, after all.

The night on the sidewalk turned quickly into a big party, with the band’s music playing and everyone sharing food and snacks. My buddy with the baby blues came and sat by my tent, offering us all a sample of his homemade brownies. Resisting a man with chocolate was futile, especially when his treats came with a killer smile that threatened to reduce me to a giggling schoolgirl. At the ripe old age of 39. He surprised me by moving just a few inches closer to me, his knee touching mine as we sat Indian-style on a small blanket I had brought.

‘So, you a big fan of the band?’

His voice was deeper than I thought it would be, his accent a muddle-mix of classic southern and classic Philly. It made me smile, which bought me time to push my nerves away before I spoke.

‘Oh, yeah. For years. When they announced that this was the last tour, I knew I just had to see them one more time. What about you? Been a fan long?’

It was my subtle way of finding out just how young he might be and his answer stabbed the small part of me that was starting to feel old.
