We're getting ridiculously close to the launch of 'Latte Girl' and it's high time I offered up another excerpt. To start things off, I'm showcasing the table of contents. The chapter names should give you a bit of taste for what's in store:
The Daily Grind
I Swear I'm Not a Stalker
Man of the Hour
Bird of Prey
Dear Sober Jordan
Casa Del Jordan
Little Green Dress
Have a Cookie
Can't Live With Them, Can't Live Without Them
Better Than Fine
The Perks of Being a Girlfriend
I'll admit that I totally have a favourite chapter. Writing 'Flirtini Friday' was so fun and I had to keep reminding myself not to get too carried away. Alcohol+ nightclub+ Ex-boyfriends can only lead to hilarity and/or embarrassment. Here's an exclusive excerpt just to prove the point:
“Hailey,” Trisha repeats, blinking a few times as she stares straight into my eyes, “we have to go dance.”
I realize that Trisha is right. There is no question about it. Dancing is a must, and it needs to happen as soon as possible.
I stand up and pull her to her feet, almost crashing down on top of her as I do.
“Dancing!” I shout, punching the air above my head.
We race out of the bathroom and over to the alcove where Brittney is still sitting with the guys.
“We have to dance!” shouts Trisha.
That’s when I notice the tray of shots sitting on the table.
“We were waiting for you,” says Steve, reaching for my arm and pulling me onto the couch beside him. “Up for some shots?”
Before I can even think of an answer, Trisha, who hasn’t even sat down, grabs one of the shot glasses and downs it before slamming it back onto the tray.
“Spicy,” she says, smacking her lips.
“It’s Fireball,” laughs one of Steve’s friends. “So I guess that’s our cue to drink?”
Everyone grabs a shot glass and clinks them together to cheers.
Why do people drink this stuff? I think, coughing at the burning in my throat.
Then the post-shot warmth blooms in my chest, and I turn to look at Steve. He’s so handsome. He has such a noble jaw. He smells like charisma.
“So are we dancing?” he asks. I blink at him and then nod vigorously.
