Guest: Author Jennifer James

Is there someone that you had a crush on growing up, someone that if you saw walking down the street you’d be transported back in time to the teenager you used to be? All those old feelings surging to the surface, the smooth adult manners and flirtation you’d learned swept right under the rug?

In LONG TIME COMING, the hero Rob has had a crush on Joey since the first time he met her when he was only fifteen. Even though he’s now a grown man, an attorney in fact, the sight of her in a bikini nearly does him in.

I had so much fun watching the interplay between these two characters, and the way that the hero (who is well-educated and well versed in “intimate relations” *giggle*) found himself reduced to the teenage boy he used to be around Joey.

I think there’s someone out there for pretty much everyone that you might run into in a casual circumstance and find yourself stuttering like a fool or blushing uncontrollably. Rob gets himself under control when he realizes that Joey wants him right back and seeing his confidence grow with every encounter was great fun.

So, who’s your teenage crush? The one guy or gal you’d turn into a stuttering, embarrassed kid again around if you saw them at the grocery store or library or post office?

One scorching weekend of no-strings sex? Or the first two days of something special…Going home for his older sister’s wedding has been a real pain. Unable to get a room at a local hotel, he's stuck in his parents’ spare bedroom, in a twin bed too short for his six-four frame, with nothing to do but fantasize about his sister’s maid of honor and her little purple bikini. Joey Sanchez: the woman he’s had a crush on for the last ten years. All grown up in all the right places. And it just so happens she’s had a crush on him too.

Lucky for him, Joey knows what she wants. In the pool, in the movie theater, with some very hot text messages, she quenches his desire and demands no promises. She’s married to her career, and that’s the way she likes it. But with the weekend winding down, Rob realizes she’s only left him wanting more. And he doesn’t want to spend the next ten years without her…

  1. I don't even remember my high school crush. In college I had a far away crush on a guy I never met. But every time I saw him, this line from an Eagles song "I have a feeling I may know him, as a lover or a friend," used to float around in my head.
