Virtually Yours by Crystal Inman

Published by Whiskey Creek Press

ISBN 1-59374-312-2

Ever wished the man of your dreams would be real?

 

Sarah Sharpe has the opportunity of a lifetime to make some extra cash for Christmas gifts for her family, and to be in a research study for Alzheimer’s. She’s been in several studies with this department and the idea of a thousand dollars is appealing. However, this case study will bring her more than she bargained for.

 

The study will be done over a course of several months, in the comfort of her own home, by way of virtual reality glasses. The various virtual locations Sarah gets to experience are ones we all wish to escape to at times, away from the usual drudgery of housework and commitments. The idea to be able to escape your troubles through a virtual contraption is fascinating.

 

Sexually appetizing is the undertone sending quivers of anticipation to a reader to see how Sarah will endure when her virtual relationship will finally come to an end at the conclusion of this study. However, another obstacle finds its way in her path- a real man, unlike Blake, her virtual lover.

 

Crystal Inman has not only managed to connect the reader with her main heroine, but also to her family. The secondary backdrop of Jessica, Sarah’s older sister, and her plight to find a job and support her family intertwines without losing a beat or confusing the reader. The author has a natural storytelling voice.

 

I rate this a Great Read!
