TITLE: Take Two
GENRE: Adult Contemporary Romance
Maddie Bauers was seconds from fleeing full stomp back to her car. She had been hesitant to go out when she thought Bree just planned to drag her to a nightclub. Now, outside the Woodland Hills house, the bass from a stereo pulsing loudly indicating a party in full swing, Maddie planted the heels of her flat sandals and refused to budge.
“Oh, come on!” Bree flashed her puppy-dog eyes, the ones that usually got her anything and anyone.
Maddie pursed her full lips. “You said one drink, Bree. This is not one drink. This is a noise violation and disorderly conduct ticket waiting to happen.”
“This is fun waiting to happen,” Bree said, tossing her long blonde hair behind her shoulder. “I know you’re frigid and anti-good times, but one f****** party isn’t going to kill you. As your best friend and roommate, it is my duty to tell you that you need to chill-ax. Have a good time.”
Bree leaned closer to Maddie. “And I heard from someone who heard from someone else that the cast and crew of the latest Davenport indie might show up. That means hot celebrities.” She raised her hands triumphantly above her head. “Woo hoo!”
“First of all, I couldn’t care less about celebrities. Secondly, how do you know they’re hot?”
Bree waggled her eyebrows. “Let’s just say I heard some rumors.”
Maddie groaned. “I’m so leaving.”
“Come on. Don’t you want to celebrate your graduation even a little bit?”
