The Guys Are Props Club by Ingrid Seymour: Character Interview and Excerpt


Where do you dream of traveling to and why?
I am dying to go to Cuba. My boyfriend, Sebastian, is from there. I’d love to see the place where he was born. We’ve talked about going together one day. Man, I really need to keep up with my Spanish and need to keep practicing my salsa moves! I suck at both right now, even if Sebastian says I’m a natural.

As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I always thought I would want to be a doctor, specifically a pediatrician. I love helping people and I love kids, so pediatrics creates the perfect combination for me. After working at the pediatric oncology ward and getting close to Hunter—the sweetest little boy you’ll ever meet—I know I’m on the right track.

What is your favorite meal?
I’m absolutely addicted to sushi. I swear they put something in the stuff to make you come back again and again. Gimme some tuna rolls!

Tell us about your family.
*sigh* Do I have to? Okay, when you ask me about your family that really amounts to my mom only. I never met my dad and I’m an only child. It’s sad to say, but my mom and I don’t talk. There’s a dark history between us that I don’t like talking about. Suffice it to say, she hasn’t been in my life for a while now. In a way, it’s sad. In another, I’m glad.

You just won a huge lottery what is the first thing you'll buy?
Oh man, what wouldn’t I buy?! I’m a college student on scholarship, which about says it all. I have to save my pennies very carefully to even be able to drink my morning coffee. Admittedly, I’m addicted to many different flavors of those little k-cups >.<. I just love the stuff. But if I have to pick just one thing, it would be a car. I have to ride the bus to work and my TOMS are pretty worn out from walking everywhere. So yeah, a car. A mini-cooper would be super cool!

What songs are most played on your Ipod?
I love Pink, Birdie and Lana del Rey. Girl power, yeah!

During her senior year in high school, Maddie Burch promised herself not to ever fall for a cute guy – or any guy – again. Cute guys are players and not to be trusted, a fact she learned the hard way when her first boyfriend ran her heart through a paper shredder. Two years later, her promise is still intact, and she’s determined to make it through college without falling victim to another creep. She has her job, school and The Guys Are Props Club to keep her mind and hormones in check.

The club was founded by Jessica, Maddie’s best friend. It is a sisterhood of girls who have fallen prey to heartless jerks and who have vowed to turn the tables. Once a semester, Jessica requires members to “do onto others as they’ve done unto you.” Setting the example, Jessica’s next play is Sebastian Capello, a theater major with heartthrob looks and a flair for Latin dance, whose heart she plans to break the way hers was once broken.

What the friends don’t know is that Sebastian is different. Despite his perfect looks and popularity, he’s not a jerk. He doesn’t play games to get his way. Instead, he keeps it real and goes after what he wants with honest intentions. And what he wants is not a bombshell like Jessica, but a down-to-earth girl like Maddie – even if it causes a riff in the girl’s friendship. Even if it means getting Maddie to break her personal vow.


“So here’s what I know about you, Madison,” Sebastian started. “You’re beautiful, smart, dedicated. You have a huge heart, a killer bod.” He sighed and shook his head. The brush of his gaze on my body gave me the chills.

I blushed and started to fidget with the tab on my soda can, swiveling it around in circles.

“You’d think that with all of that,” he continued, “I wouldn’t need to know more, but I want to learn everything there is to learn about Madison Riley Burch. I want to know you . . . inside and out.”
