As if being a purrfect cheerleader isn’t enough responsibility! Tessa Crimson’s the sweet and spunky leader of the SOS (Society of Smitten Kittens), a cheer squad–turned–spy society dedicated to bringing dastardly boyfriends to justice, one cheater at a time. Boyfriend-busting wouldn’t be so bad . . . except that so far, every suspect on the Naughty List has been proven 100% guilty!

When Tessa’s own boyfriend shows up on the List, she turns her sleuthing skills on him. Is Aiden just as naughty as all the rest, or will Tessa’s sneaky ways end in catastrophe?
The Naughty List. Is your boyfriend on it?

Cute. That's the first thing I thought once I finished the first chapter. I was really looking forward to reading this book, and it was definitely different that I expected but I did enjoy it and am looking forward to the sequel.

Meet Tess, uber sweet, positive, and perfect friend, girlfriend, classmate, daughter, student etc. But underneath it all she has many doubts. Sometimes the perkiness that Tess brought as the narrator irritated me a little bit, it was too "cheerleadery" cute, but I appreciated her positive outlook on life.

The other characters in the book were a little cliche at times, ditsy cheerleader, hot mean girl, perfect jock boyfriend. But, the plot was original and brought new light to the characters. The writing was good in a fun fluffy way, some words had been "modernized" with imperfect grammar which is understandable but is a secret pet peeve of mine.

Overall the book was a fun and quick read with an original plot and under laying meaning. I did enjoy the book and am looking forward to the sequel. Definitely check this one out, it is released in early Feb!
