Wanna Kiss A Pop Star?
by Sarah Vance-Tompkins
Okay. I admit it.
When I was younger there might've been a pop star or two I would've liked to smooch, but now that I'm married to the man of my dreams, those days are far behind me.
My husband works in the music business and he is frequently invited by record label executives to go to concerts. Now and then I get to tag along as his 'Plus One.' It's always fun to see how things work behind the scenes.
It gets even better when I get to rub shoulders with my favorites. I can't begin to tell you how excited I was to get to see Lady Antebellum at the Troubadour. It seemed like the show had just ended when Charles Kelley was standing next to me. He was so (very) tall and (very) handsome, all I could think to say to him (over and over, I'm afraid) was "I love you."
I think my face says it all.
My biggest thrill (so far) was going backstage to meet Ed Sheeran. I was the oldest girl in the line outside his dressing room. Fortunately, Ed was very gracious. He even made a fuss over the lighting when it came to taking the backstage pic. But I thing I love the most about the photo is my husband's face beaming in the background. That is true love, and the reason I write romance.
Drama student Hannah Evans isn't kissing any frogs on her path to find Prince Charming. She's determined to share the perfect first kiss -- with the perfect boy -- in the perfect place -- or she's not kissing at all. When Hannah meets a cute ginger-haired boy in first class lounge in the London airport, she knows he's 'The One.'
Pop star Theo Callahan is on the road to get as far away as possible from his back-stabbing best friend, and his supermodel girlfriend who broke his heart. Until one shy smile from Hannah has him rethinking all of his travel plans.
Theo is smitten, but he's worried she's just a groupie in search of the ultimate selfie. Can Theo learn to trust Hannah in time to share one perfect first kiss, or will Hannah be forced to kiss a frog?
