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?

A refreshing, fun but meaningful story about everything that's involved in a teenage relationship. A book that'll make you laugh and frown along with the characters, then lose yourself in thoughts of you and your someone.

The Naughty List is fast-paced, making it real hard for readers to put it down even once. 272 pages go great together and you can't help wishing there was more to read. I love Suzanne's voice real much. It's fun, it's a little bit crazy and just like how she chose to name the book, a little naughty.

The subject of cheating investigation itself is enough to bring thrill to the audience, and with the author's brilliant way of portraying it, The Naughty List becomes more appealing then ever. I love how SOS is so professional and serious about their business. It also cracks me up when Tess carries on her task of sneaking into people's house to trace evidence of betrayal. Everything about it is enjoyable.

As for the characters, I love Tess and Aiden. They're officially one of my favorite fictional couples now. Tess seems like a perfect girl at first but as the story progresses, she reveals more of her insecurities, which makes her more loveable. She makes mistake but learns from it, she doesn't quit her job no matter what happens. And Aiden, I have to say that I don't really trust him at first. However, as the story nears the end, he's become greater and greater. Christian is also an interesting character but I won't say much because you have to find out about him yourself.

Over all this is a great story about love and trust. The hardcover edition comes out tomorrow so pick up a copy as soon as possible. I'm so so in love with it I can hardly wait for the sequel.

Rating: 4/5
