Friday Night Alibi by Cassie Mae
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.
“So… You need an alibi?” Those are the first word of this book and then it goes about descripting samples of packets she offers. The girl has it covered. They’re solid alibi that will hold up against parenteral inquiry. My first thought: Damn, why didn’t I think of that! I knew then it was going to be an hilarious read.
Friday Night Alibi Felt like two different novelettes crambed together to form this novel. The first half was the hilariously funny relationship about a boy and a girl that use pranks to get to know one another. The second half is about the girl trying to fight her feels about the boy. With how comfortable she was with pranking him it was frustrating to see how she fought against her feelings.
Ir would have worked better if Chase was the one fighting his feeling, than Kellie. With everything Chase was dealing with it felt he should have been more reluctant to fall in love. Plus Kellie’s motivations felt hollow.
There are parts that are absolutely laughing out loud funny especially the spa scene. I will never look at a orange the same way again. But its missing that thing that made Reasons Why I Fell for the Fat Funny Friend special. With that said the hilarity that anchors the beginning it’s peppered through the second half, which makes it still worth reading.
I give Friday Night Alibi 3 out 5 Gs.
