Review: Confessions of an Alli Cat by Courtney Cole

"You know what they say...a happy vagina is a happy woman. Well, they might not say that, but they should." -Alli

Thirty-five year-old Allison "Alli" Lancaster has it all--a fabulous job, a beautiful 15 year-old daughter, a hilarious BFF and a gorgeous house with a pool and Jacuzzi in an exclusive Las Vegas neighborhood. What she doesn't have is a husband, because she kicked her lousy, cheating ex to the curb nine months ago. Since then, Alli has paid her dues with seemingly endless self-improvement and seemingly endless mourning. Now she's ready to move on and try new things.

Alli's idea of "trying new things" is nothing like that devil-of-a-best-friend of hers. Somehow, Sara, the devil of a best friend, talks Alli into trying out a sex toy, sleeping with a younger man and letting a stranger in a lab jacket put hot wax on a place that should never, ever, ever see wax. And that's only the beginning.

Alli never saw her life going quite like this. She also never thought she'd meet someone else who had the very real potential to change her life forever.

But she did.

Enter the new guy. He's gorgeous, refined and mature. He's also marriage material. But that poses a problem for Alli, who renounced the institution of marriage when she renounced her ex. What's a girl to do?

They say that what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. But what the heck happens when you can't leave Vegas? Well, you spin the wheel, of course. You play the game and let the chips fall where they may.

Alli just hopes she can find them all.


Alli Lancaster has a sleazeball ex-husband with a bimbo girlfriend, a teenage daughter that is in her typical teen years, and a high powered job.  That takes up all her time until best friend, Sara, decides she needs to help Alli get back into the swing of things and enjoying life again.  Hilarious antics ensue as Sara takes Alli to a sex shop and for a bikini wax before introducing her to hot young stud, Shade. And Shade is definitely HOT!  He has Alli's world tilted upside down.  And what is a lady to do, but make it more complicated when her new boss shows up and the attraction is definitely mutual.

Courtney Cole's "Confessions of an Alli Cat" was a delightful read.  I loved the character of Alli and the mishaps that follow her actions every step of the way.  There are so many laugh out loud moments in this book that you will find yourself finishing the book way before you are ready to say good-bye to the characters.  There are a couple of plot twists that pop up.  One of them I saw coming from the get go, but the other one I felt my jaw drop open. And best friend, Sara, is simply outrageous.  She reminds me of a very good friend of mine and I couldn't help but laugh out loud and then call my friend to tell her about this character.

If you want a sexy, sweet, good girl gets the best guy story, then you are going to absolutely love this book.  And you are going to laugh at the hijinks, no matter how painful they may be.  Thank you, Courtney, for entertaining me so thoroughly!
