Lucy Merkin never crushed on the usual Tiger Beat poster boys. She carried around a frayed copy of Time Magazine with comedian Benjamin Wright on the cover. Her crush was unusual, but his sense of humor and dashing good looks made him irresistible to her.
As an adult, her infatuation continued. When her friend gets her tickets to see him and his comedy partner live, Lucy’s thrilled. When the partner asks if anyone in the audience will take pity on Mr. Wright and kiss him, Lucy knows it’s part of the act. Still, unwilling to miss her chance, she runs to the stage to lock lips with her celebrity crush. And…sparks fly.
After a few stutter starts, they begin a long distance relationship, but distance is far from their biggest hurdle. Between his children’s attitudes, the press’ opinions and Lucy’s abandonment issues, the struggle to maintain their love is a difficult one.
Should they give up or will some friends, some booze and some pretty great sex be enough to ensure their happily ever after?
