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.
Now on to my review…
I received an ARC copy in exchange for an honest review…
First and foremost if you’re offended by sexually explicit material, situations and language this isn’t a book for you…BUT if you’re a fan of all of those things and then some then pop the corks on a couple bottles of wine and get to reading!!!
In Confessions we meet Allison; a 35 year old Mom to 15 year old Sophie, who’s recently divorced from Rick the Dick after 15 years of marriage…Luckily for Allison she has her best friend Sara; fun single gal with absolutely no filter who knows how to have a fun time to help her jump back into the dating world.
We have Shade, the 23 yr old sex on a stick gigolo who helps Alli tap into her inner cougar…on my panty dropper scale Shade gets a solid 8 with potential as he ages
And best of all there’s Alex, Alli’s new 40 something boss who’s an even bigger piece of sex on a stick who she’s got the hot for…Can’t blame her I’d drool over him too! I like an older distinguished man so I’m giving Alex a perfect 10!
Now it’s been some time since I read chick lit, In my late teens early twenties that’s all I read but I stopped reading it because it got boring and had no “spice” to it BUT Alli Cat is none of that! It’s naughty, honest and hilarious! Alli’s inner thoughts and conversations with her vagina (yes, she talked to her vagina, the conversation she had with it during the Brazilian wax was one of my favorites) made me laugh till I had tears. Being 32 I related to Alli feeling like a dirty old lady for considering, at Sara’s suggestion of course, hiring a 23 year old gigolo to help her jump back in the dating pool…however the scenes between Alli & Shade has me thinking Sara is on to something!!! Although there is this one scene with Alli & Alex in an elevator…yeaaaa you may need a cold shower after that one.
Most of all I loved the honest conversations between her and Sara, they had those types of insane conversations that no sane people should ever have, yet oddly enough I’ve had similar conversations with my two best friends.
I really hope Courtney continues with more books in the Cougar Chronicles because this was excellently written with well developed characters and a story full of great friends, hot sexy men and sex that requires a cold shower afterwards!!!
Reading Confessions of an Alli Cat once just isn’t enough it’ll be one book you will never get tired of reading or if you’re like me I was highlighting like every two pages to read and re-read over and over.
Confessions of an Alli Cat gets a solid
