Title: Friday Night Alibi
Author: Cassie Mae
Rating: 

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.

  

Friday Night Alibi is about a girl named Kelli who has a very strange way of making money. You see, she's everyone's alibi. Sounds crazy right? Well, it works for her. She stays hidden in her room on Friday nights since her parents never notice what she's doing, and she lets people pay her to say she was with them, when in reality they are with someone else. Kelli lives in a town where money and appearance seems to be everything. And all of this works for Kelli until he came along. 

Chase has had a hard life of his own, and when he meets Kelli he can't seem to stay away from her, even though she somehow brings the worse out in him. And as these two get closer life starts to get more complicated. 

Over all I liked this book. But I had a really hard time liking Kelli. She made this story not so great for me. I sometimes felt like she was slightly shallow, and annoying. I know everything she was feeling was explained, but I still didn't really get it, and I couldn't relate to her at all.  I did however  really like Chase. He was a great character, and made this book very interesting. 

And the plot was pretty good, and unique as well. I enjoyed that. But again, because of Kelli this book was only a three star to me.
