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.
*Blurb from Goodreads*
So I have been saving a few pennies just to buy this book and I am not disappointed that I spend it. Well done to Cassie Mae. Just like Reasons I was caught reading till the book was done. (little sleep but so worth it). Friday Night Alibi is a lightweight, entertaining read for anybody who likes YA.
Aside from the clever Friday Night Alibi scheme, the plot line is simple—a cat and mouse game between a teenage boy and girl and the make out session that ensues once they finally connect.
Cassie brings the town of Sundale alive, a Utopia where every family is wealthy, all the kids have trust funds, and everyone is a Christian. As to be expected in a world that will never be perfect, the characters are shallow and gauche and hypocritical.
But after Kelli Pinkins meets Chase Moroney under the worst of circumstances, they launch into a series of plots against one another. As much as she detests him, she can’t deny the chemistry that exists between them. You can imagine Kelli’s surprise when she learns that Chase is her Friday night Xbox buddy, the stranger she trusted with the secret of her alibi business.
