It’s a hot summer day and Beth is engaged in her favorite pastime—daydreaming about Grant, the college-aged young man whose cut her lawn every summer since her husband divorced her three years ago. He’s on a football scholarship with a quarterback’s lean limbs, tight abs and strong shoulders and Beth would love nothing better than to figure out how to get to know him better. She’s imagined a thousand scenarios.

Can she bring herself to act on one before the summer ends?

When you just can’t stop thinking about someone unattainable then all that’s left is to daydream, or is it?

Beth Barnes is an older lady busy keeping her house in order and ogling her sexy gardener Grant. Grant has earned a football scholarship to Kansas University and his athletic, perfectly honed body is a welcome dose of eye-candy on her lawn. Who can blame her? I would look too!

What’s nice about Daydreams is that Ms Towers has gone a little deeper than just the physical; the main characters enjoy each other’s company. And what’s also nice is not only do we get to hear Beth’s lusty thoughts about Grant, but we also get an insight into Grant’s feelings for Beth. The story switches between the two character’s minds and let’s just say they are seriously hot for each other and not lacking imagination.

There is an age gap sure, but it’s handled well by the author and I have to say I really enjoyed reading about the fantasies this couple were having about each other, and that is the main part of the story, their daydreams as they admire the other on a hot sunny day in the garden. The temperature certainly goes up as you turn the pages that’s for sure.

The story ends with the feeling that there is so much more going to happen, and I for one would be happy to find out all the juicy details, even though I did feel for Beth and her… predicament at the very end.

Daydreams is great writing and a hot short story that left me panting for more, much more.
