Review: The Naughty List

Title: The Naughty List
Author: Suzanne Young

From GoodReads, "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?"

To be honest I picked this book because of the title, not because I like naughty things, but I figured it had to be interesting.  The Naughty List is a great book with many lessons.  Tessa Crimson is a great person trying to do the right thing all the time.  She values her morals of no cursing, no drinking, being trustworthy, but most of all, honesty!  She has a great boyfriend and they truly have a great relationship with all the qualities a relationship should have. In trying to do the right thing and keeping others honest, Tessa and he friends have a group that investigate cheaters called SOS.  As time goes on her involvement with the SOS starts to change her faith in trust. With each investigation turning up guilty she becomes more skeptical.  So when her boyfriend ends up a suspect on the list of cheaters, Tessa really loses it!  

The message I took from this book was that you have to have faith in people and trust in the relationship you have.  You can’t control or change how people are and the decisions they make.  It is normal to find a companion that is compatible with you in interests, attraction and backgrounds.  Life is all about taking risks even with your heart.  I know sometimes things don’t work out between people but if it does it can be the most rewarding thing in your life.  But if you aren’t willing to totally give yourself and take that risk you will never truly find the love of your life.  This is a great read for anyone because it will either teach you a lesson or confirm what you already know.
