KEEP ME UP by Arabella Keppler
Maddie can’t sleep, and she knows exactly who’s to blame. It’s the guy downstairs, Brendan. He’s a music producer who just works all the way into the night. There’s only one way Maddie can deal with him: She’ll just have to go to the downstairs apartment and tell him to keep it down.
But instead of just rolling down the volume, Brendan invites her in. He shows her how he works, and he invites her to dance for a moment, to the music he’s mixing. As she dances, Brendan looks at Maddie with a look full of admiration. It is a look that makes her think there could be more to all of this. Brendan is going to be hers. She slips onto his lap and out of her dressing gown. From there, things can only get more heated.
