It’s been a long time since I’ve read a sweet romance, and this short was just the ticket to start me off in a new reading direction. In a day when everything “has” to be hot and hotter, when we’re seeing menages with 12 men and one woman, it was a refreshing blast of fresh air to see one young woman fall in love with one young man and make an homage to the past in doing so.
Mira’s living a devastated present in 2008, even though she might put on a brave face. But memories of her father’s favorite movie take her into a past life of sorts, where she meets and falls for a young man named James. James Dean.
Mira did not know what she had in store the day she fell asleep while wanting to escape her current situation. Overcoming a death from someone so close and burying herself in school and an internship has kept her somewhat awake and alive. An admiration for the actor, James Dean was all that kept the memory of her father alive. If she couldn’t be with her father, she could at least remember what they shared an admiration for together. She always wanted to meet James Dean… she didn’t know it would come true. Be careful what you wish for. It may just come true.
