Review: Confessions of an Alli Cat - Courtney Cole

Synopsis from Goodreads:

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. 


Caution! Only read this book if you want to laugh and are not offended at adult themes and language. This is not a Young Adult book

Hootie Says:

I can't begin to count how many times I laughed while reading this book! It was such a funny, witty and sexy read that I wasn't able to put down! I was given an ARC of this book a week ago and I still can't stop thinking about the hilarious fuckery that Alli and her best friend Sara get themselves into! They reminded me of I Love Lucy...

and The Nanny...

only imagine what it would be like if Lucy and The Nanny got married and had a kid! YEAH! That would be EPIC! Which is what this book ultimately becomes! 

Alli is a somewhat timid woman until Sara (The BFF) convinces her to get her groove on with a younger guy. She is reluctant until she lays eyes on that sexy bastard!

                             (Chu want to pet dee Kitty??)

Once she gets over the awkwardness of banging a stranger, Shade (Mr. Hottie McPokes-alot) teaches her the ropes on satisfying a man. (Where can you find men with that kind of stamina? I end up with the baby dicks, or psychos.) Alli and Shade develop a friendship and he helps her prepare for getting back into the dating world. When Alli goes on her first date and Shade tags along funny shit happens! 

"I'd. Like. The. Pasta Alfredo."

Doesn't sound like it would be funny by that quote but trust me the situation will have you peeing your pants! I loved watching Alli slowly rebuild her confidence with Shade helping her. When her shitty ex dumped her she lost her spark. While spending time with her daughter something unexpected happens that should give women everywhere a freaking BONER!

"I didn't do it on purpose!"

When her new boss comes into the picture it changes Alli's perspective on everything she vowed after getting rid of her ex. Alex is charming, funny, sweet and sexy! The chemistry between Alli and Alex ignites in a hilarious and sensual manner during a particular moment in the book.


Absolutely classic!! 

I just can't fully express how amazing this book was! Not only was it funny, but it had heart and tons of steamy moments to fog your glasses! I laughed, I swooned and I even got hot and bothered, so all in all it was the perfect trifecta! Absolute must read!
