Synopsis from Goodreads: Rising star Cassie Mae introduces New Adult readers to a practical soon-to-be college freshman who seems to have everything—until a special guy shows her what she’s been missing.
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 reallyknows 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.

My review: When I saw this on Goodreads and read the synopsis I was immediately intrigued and knew I HAD to read it. And it was really good!
I enjoyed reading about Kelli and Chase (better known as their nicknames, “Stinky” and “Moron”). The whole novel was just really cute and, at times, quite innocent. Although, other times it did get a little hot and heavy 😉
Oranges have never seemed so sexy.
Anyways, reading from Kelli’s point of view was sort of like diving into her diary. The way she explained things was just so blunt and with no sugar coating. And she was honest. I just loved that. In her descriptions of Chase, and the struggles with her parents, she just sounded real.
I also love a book that has anything to do with people being rich, rich, rich so this was perfect! The whole concept of the “Friday Night Alibi” was pretty cool too. Although I would have liked to see her talk about a few other clients. However, her struggles with this one client in particular and all the challenges he brought on, made it more realistic in my eyes.
I believe this is classified as New Adult romance so you should probably be a little older if you want to read this! Or you can ignore my warning altogether and go for the gusto.
See you soon!
