Sarah McCall, food truck co-owner and recent Manhattan transplant, savors each moment of her new job—whether it’s refining the truck's menu, learning the city, or spending afternoons in bed with the hot paramedic who's fast becoming her favorite customer.
Tim Cannon spends his days sprinting from one emergency to the next. He eats like he works—at top speed—somewhere along the line he lost his ability to enjoy life's simple pleasures. Hooking up with Sarah is just another way to cope with the stress of his job, until their afternoon trysts coax Tim into enjoying everything he's avoided. Can Tim learn to balance his job saving lives with the everyday delights that make life worth living? If anyone can teach him, it’s Sarah….
As a general rule, I’m a Black Keys, White Stripes, rock'n'roll kind of woman. But I found myself grinning ridiculously and humming the Starlight Vocal Band’s perennial favorite, “Afternoon Delight,” while reading Anne Calhoun’s enjoyable novella of the same title.
