Synopsis Borrowed from Goodreads:

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 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.

Darkfallen's thoughts:
This was a super cute read!! Not at all what I expected but sooooo cute!!

Kelli seems to be the perfect girl. The type of girl you can bring home to the family. That's what lead to her business of being the alibi. If you looking to sneak out with someone your family won't approve of then she's your girl. Which leads to a lot of Friday nights spent alone in her room. That is until she meets Chase and everything changes.

So first off while these characters are college age this felt like more of a YA read. It's sweet, perfect, and innocent. There's no fade to black moments because all they do is kiss. But OMG is it swoon worthy when you finally get there. This was a refreshing beach read. A book that demands you don't put it down till you're finished. And I totally fell in love with Chase! I mean once you meet him how could you not?! And then you have Kelli. She's snarky, witty, and at the same time you can't help but feel sorry for her. With both the way people use her for their alibi to the way her parents act like she's not even there.

Overall this was a great beach read and I love Chase and Kels!
