1. Rachida's Venti Caramel Latte of Love

Location: Cheesy Couples World
Reason You’re Playing: Boy, Romance
When I was in the line to order my coffee there was this guy talking on the phone to his girlfriend. He said that he drove all the way to this coffee shop because they serve her favourite drink and that he would be there when her class ends to pick her up and take her out to dinner and I thought, I really need a new book boyfriend so I can stop listening to real-life couple conversations.
2. Rachida, Friends 4Ever
Location: Coffee to Go
Reason: Girl, Friendship
After meeting Adam last year we started out pretty good! He’s funny, very good-looking and he enjoys coffee as much as I do. But he wasn't a very good listener. I decided to let the relationship go and just focus on my friends. And since you can never have enough real friends, I’m looking for a new BFF to share every moment of my life with.

If you pick CITY, the cover of your book must have a light source (doesn't have to be lit) or an item that is silver, gray, gold, or yellow.
