Friday Night Alibi

From Amazon: In the wealthy town of Sundale, Kelli Pinkins has hatched the perfect plan to capitalize on her sweet reputation. For a generous fee, she will be every trust-fund baby’s dream: a Friday-night alibi, the “girlfriend” or “BFF” that parents dream about. With college approaching in the fall, Kelli’s services are in demand more than ever, which means that her social life is nonexistent. But Kelli is A-okay with that. She’s raking in cash for school. Besides, relationships are tricky, and sometimes very messy. She’d rather be at home on Xbox LIVE, anyway. Then the unexpected happens: She meets college stud Chase Maroney.
Chase isn’t like the preppy, privileged guys Kelli usually meets in Sundale. For starters, he’s twentysomething, always wears black, and he shoots back one-liners as fast as she can dish them out. But Kelli’s attempts to drive Chase away falter when she realizes that he treats her like he really knows her, like he cares about knowing her. When Kelli finally gives in to the delicious kiss she’s been fighting for so long, she faces a tough decision: make Chase a real-life boyfriend and risk her heart . . . or keep her clients and lose her first true love.

What I Thought: WOW. Wow. WOW! This is the sweetest story I have read in a long time. It made me laugh out loud, cry and will seriously tug at your heart. I read it in one sitting- Couldn't put it down.

Kelli Pickins is the girl who has it all, or at least it looks like she does from the outside anyway. In the super rich town of Sundale, Kelli is the girl you say you were with when you were really out with the girl-or guy-that your trust fund hostage holding parents find undesirable. For a price, Kelli has carved a living out of being a weekend alibi for the super rich while she actually spends Friday nights playing XBox live with her favorite gaming partner.

Chase isn't the type of guy Kelli is used to, in fact he takes her so off guard that she doesn't know what to do with him. He's slightly older and challenges her at every turn. He is so dreamy-he had me from his first smart ass remark.

I loved watching these two fall in love. Even when they are playing these huge jokes on each other the romantic tension is just so fun and entertaining. They are kissing one minute and throwing hilarious verbal jabs at each other the next, which makes amps up the steam and the adorable factor. This is labeled New Adult, but I think is safe for Young Adults (14+). Make out scenes only (mostly kissing)- but they are totally sigh-licious! 

I can't wait to see what else comes from this author in the future!
