Review for Friday Night Alibi by Cassie Mae

Title: Friday Night Alibi
Author: Cassie Mae
Reviewer: Rebecca
Rating: 4 Groupie Stars

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.

Ok, I've said this before but I truly enjoy Cassie Mae's YA series!!  They are alway light hearted but real at the same time.  I loved how snarky Kelli was, even if was to keep the "Moron" at bay.  Young love has a way of making everyone feel like there is hope and Cassie Mae wrote a perfect book about it!!

"I just found a way to be myself and make money off of it.  Win-win."

Kelli Pinson is your typical rich girl, who spends her days at the country club and her nights as an "alibi."  She has everything she wants, materialistically anyway....but what she craves more is for her parents to want and need her and since they don't seem inclined to feel that way, she rents herself out to her "friends" so they can do what they want without their parents finding out.  But when a guy by the name of Chase "Moron" Moroney shows up..things could change, but is Kelli ready to give up her alibi status for real love?

Chase is the mysterious college guy that never gives too much information out but has a smirk that you want to smack and kiss at the same time or so Kelli says.  When he meets Kelli, he isn't aware that she is actually his "Friday Night Girl" from his game but after he figures it out he knows that he wants more than just Friday nights with her.  But convincing Kelli that he is more than witty comebacks and jokes is a lot harder than he thought it would be.

"What is wrong with me?  Girls get all hot and bothered over guys in tight t-shirts and low jeans, but not me.  I get all panty over buttoned up jeans and trimmed scruff."

LOVE this story almost as much as Switched.  I just love how Cassie Mae can breathe life into a YA book and not make you feel like you are too old to be reading it. The inner monologue in this was the funniest and most laugh out loud entertainment I have had in a LONG time!!   I always look forward to her books!!

Cassie Mae (sometimes writes as Becca Ann ;)) is a nerd to the core from Utah, who likes to write about other nerds who find love. Her angel children and perfect husband fan her and feed her grapes while she clacks away on the keyboard. Then she wakes up from that dream world and manages to get a few words on the computer while the house explodes around her. When she’s not writing, she’s spending time with the youth in her community as a volleyball and basketball coach, or searching the house desperately for chocolate.
