Sabrina has been a fan of the band, "Scratch," for years, and she and her best friend, Katie, have finally snagged front row seats. An accident brings Sabrina and lead singer, Rob Burnett, face to face, and the two end up at a blues club together. The tables are turned on Rob, as the "star" becomes just another fan of the great blues artists playing in the local club. Sabrina finds herself struggling between being just another groupie pursuing a rock star, and her growing attraction to Rob, the man. Rob, whose wife has recently left him, finds himself quickly falling for Sabrina, and both of them pursue the night into a rock and roll fantasy turned flesh.
“Happy Accident” gave me a glimpse into why Ms. Kitt is so popular. She does tell a good story and isn’t afraid of pushing conventional boundaries. I also think her niche is storytelling from a first person point of view; the problems I had with “A Different Angle”—the only other novella of hers that I read—were absent in this story. Likewise, Ms. Kitt isn’t afraid of defying the traditional construct of a “happily ever after” for a more realistic view on the paths people take after their affairs.
In this story, Sabrina is a thirty-something teacher who remains, at heart, a fangirl. She attends the concert of one of her favorite bands and ends up literally crashing into the lead singer. Readers are taken along a brief ride detailing what life is like in the arms of a celebrity. The sex is amazingly hot and the chemistry between Sabrina and Rob absolutely sizzles. For what I came to read, I was not disappointed.
