Soap Dreams by Stephanie Haefner

It’s never too late to start over.

Robyn Miller is perfectly happy in her immaculate home, playing
stay-at-home mom and devoted wife. That is, until she’s channel surfing
one day and sees her high school sweetheart Derek, acting in a lead role
in her favorite old soap. Watching Derek’s show becomes her secret
pleasure…and brings back memories best forgotten. When Derek’s mother
throws him a big celebration in town, Robyn tries to avoid seeing him,
but ends up in his arms for a dance.

Derek has finally hit the big-time, but he hasn’t found happiness. He
regrets losing Robyn, and his show’s ratings are falling. He longs to
get her back in his life–both personally, and as a writer on the show.
Those love scenes she used to dream up were Emmy material. Knowing her
marriage is a sham, can he convince her to follow her dreams and give
the show–and him–a shot?

A Lyrical Press Contemporary Romance

Sarah’s Review:

I recently became aware of a few WNY authors thanks to connecting with other WNY authors.  I decided to read this one because it was short and something that caught my attention.  It took me a couple days longer than I thought it would to actually read it because of Memorial Day weekend plans.  I finally had the chance to finish it this morning (5/29/13).  

 I enjoyed reading romances that reconnect high school loves.  When we are kids in high school and preparing to go off to college, we do stupid things and make stupid decisions.  I love seeing the couple get a second chance.  This story gives us that plus more. 

I loved Robyn’s strength when she finally decided follow her dreams.  I love that she stood up to her scum of a husband (I really didn’t like him) and told him that she wanted a divorce.  I love that she had her best friend that help encourage her to follow her dreams, even when she didn’t at first because of Derek. 

Derek is a local boy turned daytime actor.  Derek returns home to convince Robyn to come to NY and write for his show since the writers haven’t been doing a good job.  I loved that Derek didn’t give up on convincing Robyn to follow her dreams. 

I enjoyed reading this little story!  I will be reading more by Stephanie Haefner as soon as I get a break with school!
