Tessa Crimson:

Cheerleader by Day, Spy by NightAs leader of the SOS (Society of Smitten Kittens), Tessa’s mission is twofold: pep preservation and relationship salvation. That’s right, Tessa is a head cheerleader whose night job is catching cheating boyfriends in the act! Thank goodness her own relationship with Aiden is strawberry-smoothie purrfect—except for the fact that she’s been concealing her nocturnal habits for, oh, two years.Aiden suspects something’s up, and his patience is wearing thin. But in the meantime, Tessa’s far too busy to deal with her own romantic roadblocks.

The Naughty List is at maximum capacity; because so far, every single suspect on it is 100% guilty.When sultry Chloe Ferril transfers to Washington High, things only become more catastrophic. Tessa knows this predatory vixen won’t stop hunting Aiden until her claws are planted firmly in his backside…But Tessa’s in for an even bigger shock when Aiden’s name shows up on The Naughty List, and she’s finally forced to confront the unthinkable: is her own boyfriend just as naughty as all the rest?


This book was cutee! I totally loved it. Did anyone watch Veronica Mars? If you did, you should read this. I think I would describe the book as Veronica Mars meets cheerleaders plus lots of naughtiness.

Tessa was a cute character. She was completely filled with being peppy and happy. Most of the time I liked it, but some of the time I found it a little annoying. She never ever swears either! She says cute little phrases instead! And when people around her swear, she just gives them a look and they apologize and rephrase their comment. Her attitude and way of talking changed a bit at the end, for which I was grateful. I found her more easy to relate to when she made mistakes and wasn’t acting “perfect”.

The only thing I would have liked more of was the back story of Tessa and Aiden’s relationship.

The little cheating reports and notes before each chapter were cool. It definitely added to them spying on people.

I just, really, really, reeeeeeeaaaalllllyyyyyyy loved the book. It made me feel lots of emotions. I’m stopping the review now because if I don’t, I will just spend the rest of this review gushing. For real. :)

I am also eagerly counting down the days until the sequel comes out, not sure if I will make it though.

Cover- the cover is cute and I like it. I like how the girl is on top of the guy and they are on a bed with lingerie around them. And I don’t think I should have said that. Also the background blinds make it seem like an old spy movie. I like it.

Overall: 4.5/5

Go buy it when it comes out!!!!!!
