Friday Night Alibi by Cassie Mae

Well if you are looking for a book about unrealistic, wealthy young adults who lie to their parents and still go to church on Sunday you found it! Okay it’s not as bad as it sounds. But honestly I was beginning to wonder if I somehow misinterpreted the write up and stumbled into the Christian romance category.

You can get the gist of the book by reading the cover write up, but honestly, the entire book just seemed like a big tease. A lot of kissing and young adult angst. There is absolutely no sex as they are good Christians and all. But what’s so Christian about hiding your relationships and lying to your parents about it just so you can keep your trust funds? It all just felt like a lot of “poor little rich kid first world problems” to me.

I did read till the end as the writing is good. I wanted to see how it all turned out in the end. However after thinking it over a day later I give it a big ole “meh”.

I did find the give and take between Kelli and Chase to be the absolute best part of this book for that alone I gave an additional star. Changing my 2 star rating to 3 stars

 From the cover….. 
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.
