Daydreams by Marcia Lynn McClure
Paperback, 202 pagesPublished July 2011 by Distractions Ink
Description: Sayler Christy knew chances were slim to none that any of her silly little daydreams would ever actually come true-especially any daydreams involving Mr. Booker, the new patient-the handsome, older patient convalescing in her grandfather's rehabilitation center.
Yet, working as a candy striper at Rawlings Rehab, Sayler couldn't help but dream of belonging to Mr. Booker-and Mr. Booker stole her heart-perhaps unintentionally-but with very little effort. Gorgeous, older, and entirely unobtainable-Sayler knew Mr. Booker would unknowingly enslave her heart for many years to come-for daydreams were nothing more than a cruel joke inflicted by life. All dreams-daydreams or otherwise-never came true. Did they?
My Review: This is one of my favorite contemporary books by this author and I had forgotten just how much I loved it...until I read it again.
Sayler is a dreamer--a dreamer who just so happens to work as a candy stripper, uh, I mean, striper, at her grandpa's rehab center. Bo is a new patient in the center and their first meeting had me laughing out loud! That has got to be the best meeting ever! Bo quickly steals Sayler's heart, but nothing comes of it--it's all just a daydream for her--until they meet again, years later.
I love how naive Sayler is. She's easy going and tries hard not to let things bother her and she really does love to live in her dreams. Bo is such a fun man. He could have had a fit about how they met, yet he just played right along with it. He's very real, although he has every reason not to be. Their chemistry is great and I love the way the storyline builds. So much happens in such a little book, yet it wasn't rushed. This really is a favorite of mine.
