Promtastic with Cindi Madsen


Operation Prom Date is about a girl who recruits her guy friend to help her land her crush—and she wants to land him in time for prom. Of course the more they hang out, the more complicated things get, especially when kissing practice gets thrown into the mix.



I figured we’d talk about all things prom.


Best TV prom
Buffy & Angel





Best movie prom
Edward & Bella of course! And even though I’d read the books, I was still telling Edward to bite her when this scene came onscreen.




The character you’d want to take you to prom, because you knew he’d be a gentleman.
Oh, Stephen Salvatore. You’re one of the good ones, if a little boring.




The character you’d want to take you to prom, because you knew he wouldn’t be a gentleman.
Oh, Damon Salvatore, I tried not to like you on principle, but there’s some guys who are just so good (and hot) at being bad.



Best celebrity prom date
It’s hard to pic just one, so I always cheat at this game. I did narrow it down to 4 guys with 2 names, though.

Chris Evans for some major swoonage (I bet you’d be swooning all night)



Ryan Reynolds for laughing until you cried (I bet you’d be laughing all night)


Chris Hemsworth for biceps and chest support & for carrying you to your car after dancing in those heels all night.


Ryan Gosling for batting your eyes at while you twirl your hair and work on remembering how words work




Kissing practice has never been more fun.

Kate ships tons of fictional couples, but IRL her OTP is her and Mick, the hot quarterback she’s crushed on since, like, forever. With only one semester left of senior year, it’s now or never if she wants to land him in time for prom. Since she’s flirtationally challenged, she enlists Cooper Callihan, the guy who turned popular seemingly overnight but who used to be a good friend.

Cooper lives and breathes rowing, but his partner just broke his wrist. When he remembers Kate’s good with a set of oars, he strikes a deal: help him train, and he’ll make sure her crush notices her. Only he didn’t know how addicting spending time with her would be. Or how the more successful the Operation is, the more jealousy he experiences.

The mission has been set. The troops have their marching orders. But what if the target is the wrong guy all along?
