It’s no secret that I love YA / Paranormal-romance. It fills 95% of my bookshelves. I love monsters and I love, love, love that sweet, young, fresh-from-the-oven, butterflies-in-my-tummy lovin’. But not being a ‘young’ adult for more than a few years now... sometimes… every once in a while… mama needs a big girl book. And I just so happen to have a big girl book guru: the always hilarious, often inappropriate, and much-loved April from Sim-Sational Books. When I read her review of Confessions of an Alli Cat, I knew I was going to love this book!
And boy, oh boy, did I ever!
Alli is a 35-year-old divorcee who’s ex-husband is King of the Asshats. She’s discovered that, during the course of their 15-year marriage, he cheated on her numerous times, and… well, you know the saying, “Hell hath no fury…”
Thanks to Alli’s best friend Sara, Alli is about to rediscover the hot, young vixen that she’s been deep down all along. And Shade is just the strapping young lad to help her with that discovery.
This is a laugh-out-loud, couldn’t-have-pried-this-book-from-my-cold-dead-hands story that I read in one sitting! I could say so many things about this book, but that would ruin the fun of finding out the delicious details yourself. I loved and, at times, sympathized with Alli (ie: waxing - something that, in my opinion, had to have been invented by a Satan-worshipping, sadistic, jilted, impotent little Nazi with a bug up his butt the size of an emu).
As funny and sexy as this book was, there was also an extremely valuable message for all women (but especially important for us over-30 ladies):
“‘Men like to look,’ he explains.
‘And women don’t usually like to be looked at.
They feel vulnerable, exposed.
They are self-conscious about their perceived flaws.
What they don’t understand is that men don’t
see them the same way they see themselves.
We see curves and we love those curves.
Confidence is sexy as hell, Alli Cat.’”
Where has this amazing author been all my life? I want to read everything Ms. Cole has ever written!
