Alexandra Daniels is forty-something and hard-working, in and out of her home. But her life has been plodding along at a snail’s pace, and she’s longing for excitement.

In Linda Bolton‘s debut novel “Take 2″ Alexandra wins a trip to her favorite talk show in New York, the “Veronica Becker Show,” and it just so happens Derek Dunbar, the actor of her dreams, is a guest on the show. Is Alex’s life about to change?

Derek Dunbar is Scottish, and a hunk. Every woman in America drools over him. He has his pick of women – but stinks at relationships. At forty, is he longing for a more meaningful relationship? Does he even know how to have one?

Is he willing to make the effort or will it just be too complicated?

The Indie Author Life

In “Take 2″ Linda Bolton explores the nuances of trying to remain sexy and attractive while aging – and looking for someone who is doing the same.

So, do you have realistic expectations? That’s the title of a recent blog post by Linda Bolton:

I’ll pick on men first. They’re easiest – sorry guys. From the time your hormones kick in you are looking for big boobs, a firm ass, or long legs. Oh, don’t forget the long blonde hair. Where does this come from? I could blame it on men’s magazines and XXX movies, but its everyhere – TV, movies, billboards. You’re bombarded with it. You have to know, we can’t compete with that. There are so few women that meet the fantasy, and can keep it. If you find her, she has to grow old at some point. Wrinkles set in, she gains some weight, the boobs are no longer perky and neither is the ass. Your eyes start to wander. Forgetting with these changes comes maturity, she knows you and your quirks, and she still loves you.

Ok gals, we’re just as bad. We long for that guy with bulging biceps, rippling abs, who can pick us up with ease and carry us off to bed. Its in our magazines, movies, TV and books we read. Men have the same issues we do…they age. The arms aren’t as muscular as they once were, the abs turn to a round gut, their hair thins. You eyes wander. This guy has been there through children, illness, and family drama – you sure you want to trade him in?
