Genre:  New Adult

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.

My Thoughts - 

Where does the story take place?
Rich town in GA called Sundale.

Is the title a good/bad choice for the story?

List the top 3 characters and 1 word to describe them each.
Stinky – LONELY
Moron – GREAT
The BFF (cannot remember name) - SELFISH

Give the book an alternate ending…or were you happy with it?
Ending was as good as it could get.

Did you cry, laugh, sigh, cringe, fume or feel nothing?
May have laughed and sighed not in a good way.

This was a cute story. I thought the idea to be quite unique and the characters to be pretty cool. Kelli was was ok with her life, seemed to have a decent head on her shoulders and had a plan. She realized almost too late that she really wasn't living though - she just getting through the days until she could begin her dream - and almost too late. I thought Mason was awesome. He was understanding, irresistible and an all around great guy - cheesy pick up line and all.

I felt but for Kelli for most of the story - I mean she really didn't have that great of friends and she didn't have much of a life...until she made the big mistake with Mason. Then I wanted to slap her.

Like I said earlier, this was a cute book. It was fast paced, quick, easy read. Kind of fluffy. Had it been a little more in depth, I think it would have rated higher.
