Jason Chen's son, Dan, is about to marry Em after only six months of knowing her. After 9/11, Jason fully believes life is too short and if Em and Dan truly love each other then they should marry and build a life together. Widowed more than sixteen years, Jason hasn't shown any interest in another woman. He claims there aren't any available good women his own age and even if there were, not many would want to get involved with a cop.
Jason's attending the concert with his sister and niece. He'd successfully managed to obtain three tickets to the concert even though he really has no interest in the music - but the band members are definitely hot. He couldn't help but notice Randy, especially since Randy had bumped into him earlier. That's all it starts out as - a passing interest in a stranger - but they'll soon discover that they have more in common then they realize and will meet again.
Barbara Sheridan and Anne Cain present readers with an unexpected romance brought on by a wedding. Despite their age difference Randy and Jason make a wonderful couple and are truly fun to get to know throughout this short story. I love the Asian feel to the characters and that while the story does take place in the
U.S. they still hold true to their ethnic 'flavor.' I DO kept me eagerly reading to find out just how a relationship would work between such an unlikely couple and I’m happy to say I was not disappointed.
