Tessa goes from strawberry smoothie to suddenly single!

After her center-court split with Aiden, Tessa puts the SOS behind her. After all, cheaters never prosper! Now she’s busy working on her faux-relationship with Aiden and negotiating the unfamiliar waters of “technically single and pseudo-dating.”

Life can’t get any more dismal for a one-guy kind of girl until an imposte

Romance, drama, scandal and betrayal make another gritty appearance in So Many Boys, engaging the characters introduced in The Naughty List in another whirlwind plot. Beginning with the questionable memo that wrapped up The Naughty List, this book launches into events swiftly. Young doesn’t waste time reintroducing her characters or the set up, still writing the same strong, developed personalities we met in the first book. The plot moves rapidly, weaving a tale of mystery and tying things up in

I was beyond excited when I found So Many Boys at a Books A Million while I was on vacation, and finished it in the same day I bought it :) The exciting plot lines and likable characters of the first book all returned in So Many Boys, making it another fun filled and great read.

Tessa was back and better than ever! In the beginning of the novel, she was still recovering from the trauma and craziness of The Naughty List and I really felt for her. She had to quit cheerleading, break up with Aiden,

A great sequel that left me satisfied with this book, but still wanting more in the next one. Tessa is down but not out in this book, still recovering from the betrayals, the lies, and general lack of support that ended the first book. Her stylist even tells her that the stress of her year has taken the shine out of her hair! That's some serious perk-damage, right there! Anyway, there is more mystery and drama here, centering around the copy-kitten who's reviving SOS, with a dark and mean twist. ...more

The minute I finished The Naughty List I began searching the libraries I frequent for So Many Boys, book 2 in the series. Frantic because none of them even had it as a book listed I searched Amazon and found it used. Score! Three weeks later, I tear the package open, barely able to hide my excitement, or the delivered pkg from my hubby, ("More books Amy?") and start reading. I need to know how my fav Smitten Kitten is holding up after her and Aiden broke up, what she's up to after quitting cheer ...more

This book just made me anxious. There are way to many poor choices being made by characters in this book, and Tessa still feels disengenous. After everything that went on in the previous book I feel like her parents suck for not figuring out and still constantly being away. I also feel like Tessa is practically ending up right where she was in the last book at the end which also annoyed me. I went back and forth over who the operative could be and that is most likely what kept me interested in t ...more

If it's possible, I like this installment in the series even more than book one. There's more spying, more twists, and, perhaps most importantly, more boys.

Though not full of crazy intense action that I tend to prefer, I was completely entertained by Tessa and the squad's antics throughout the entire book. Tessa still manages to get into the craziest, most awkward situations even though she's not on the squad, but I liked seeing her in a normal environment too. Since she's out of her "must alway

My Thoughts: So Many Boys is the second novel in the Naughty List trilogy. We are back with Tessa, but she is no longer the cheer leading captain or caption of SOS. The cheerteam is now headed by Tessa's best friend Kira and there is a copy kitten impersonating SOS. SOS had been put on hold in the past few months.

Tessa is no longer the perky girl we once knew. Her and Aiden are kind of on a "break" since he's away at college and she doesn't have as much pep in her kick.

So Many Boys is full of so

I gave this 4 stars for a couple of reasons. For one, I like how the story illustrates how STUPID girls can be when it comes to guys and allowing them to mistreat them and take advantage of them, and take them for granted.... etc. (GIRLS, RESPECT YOURSELVES!) However, I also approve how the story reminds us that while two people can be "completely in love" with each other, that relationship may not work out or be "meant to be." Also, it shows that even though people can truly love each other, th ...more

Great read - more complicated, than the first book with bigger problems, betrayals, events. Poor Tess - her luck with guys and friends is dismal!!! I loved Leona and Joel in this book - they were perfect, I was furious with Aiden (especially after all his accusations to Tessa in the first book, but what she did with Christian was oh-so-innocent in comparison with his behaviour - Tessa continued to fend off other guys because of him, and he......was a jerk). The end is promising and I WANT the t ...more

It was terrific to see Tessa Crimson again, but the poor girl was in need of a serious pep transfusion! Tessa, frazzled from chasing after a copy-kitten, trying to save her reputation, and keeping her former squad together, is so far from strawberry smoothie it will just about break your heart! I loved this sequel to The Naughty List--the plot was fast-paced and well-crafted, the dynamics between the Smitten Kittens very believable, and the sexual tension was amazing!

While a quick, kinda fun read, this book annoyed me. Tessa and her friends didn't have a real 'friendship,' and although that was kind of the point, their interactions were incredibly unrealistic. In addition, Tessa's fake curses and issues with profanity rang completely untrue.

Ahhhhghghghhhhh this one was so freaking cute!

I wasn't enjoying the whole imposter plot, but that ending made up for it!

The 1st part was a little slow but this one was good from start to finish. Doesn't anyone else think it's wrong to hang out with your friends BF and hide it from her🤔 I mean cmon!

So I'm not sure why I didn't put a review on this book when I read it a few years back, but I guess I will now since I just reread it.

So it starts off at the beginning of the next year, so Tessa is now a senior and Aiden is in college. They are still "sorting out" their relationship, which is technically being friends with benefits, excluding the sex. However, there is still a strain on their relationship- of course.

Tessa was less cheery and perky in this book and it obvious why. She changed her

This is the second in the Naughty List series and is as good as the previous book. To set the scene the book starts off exactly where it left off with the SOS being suspended for the time being so that Tessa could find herself and who she wanted to be. The plot in this installment is better then the previous one as there is a bit more going on with a rogue SOS person out to sabotage the SOS amongst the students. The rogue SOS is a great addition to the characters of the book.

So Many Boys es la segunda parte de la trilogía The Naughty List. Este segundo libro nos cuenta el último año de instituto de Tessa y del resto de las Smitten Kittens. También vemos como va la relación un tanto complicada entre Tessa y Aiden, que no se sabe si han vuelto o no. Al final de la primera parte de esta trilogía descubrimos que SOS iba a ser eliminado pero al abrir este libro vemos que vuelve a estar activo. Pero ninguna de las Kittens parece e

Ok, so it took me a while to get into the whole smitten kitten thing again. Frankly Tessa annoyed me like only few other characters have. She's naively innocent and unrealistically trusting. But the thing that annoyed me the most was that she had no back bone. I mean a girl slapped her and she just stood there and took it. What kind of a self-respecting woman takes that kind of shit from someone? She constantly needed assurances from Leona to make herself feel good. Aside from that fact, she was ...more

This was a great sequel. I enjoyed just like the first one.


What a shame. I thought he was a really nice guy, the 'perfect' guy. No, No I. DONT. FORGIVE. YOU. JERK!

I like him. He was there for Tessa all the time no matter what.
NICE GUY. REALLY NICE GUY. Utterly swoonworthy.

Not the one for Kira.

Kiraaa! Hmmm Im trying to understand her...but..I can't. Sorry. She was a bitch. Just like Mary.

and Tessa... what can I say about Tessa? Well, P

FUDGECAKE! I'm effing downhearted with the happenings! WHY? WHY? I hate this sort of things! first, Joel reminds me of Christian, I mean seriously? it was clear that he's flirting with Tessa and ugh! joel reminds me of a boy in our school so this was never good. I thought Aiden and Tessa's relationship will be DTRed but then it was found out that he's an effin cheater, well not really because he's not with Tessa anymore but FUDGE! you don't do that to my OTP! and Aiden? really?

Mmmmm.... todavía no estoy segura si me gusta o no esta historia, la mayor parte del libro me la pase aburrida, hasta que la final por fina apareció algo del drama que me gusta, debo confesar que no me gusta nada Tessa, siempre esta mintiendo a las personas por protegerse y al final por eso le salen mal las cosas, pocas veces me sucede esto con las protagonistas, pero Tessa me decepciona un poco, no es la chica que yo creí, ademas que no me gusto lo que pasa con Aiden en este libro, solo espero ...more
Seriously... WHAT THE FUDGE?

I remember I liked the previous book in spite of all its flaws, but this one was simply terrible. The characters were bland (cliched, one dimensional, stereotyped) and way too superficial to live, the plot twists were predictable and the fact that this girls' life revolved around boys disgusted me. I know they're teens, but it went over the top, and sent a terrible message. You don't need a guy (or anyone, really) to define yourself, to be more popular, to be importan

bueno, aun no me termina de convencer. Tess sigue siendo muy indecisa y eso me molesta. aunque definitivamente no me esperaba la falsa kitten. y eso que pasó con aiden! de verdad?? iba tan bien y tuvo que pasar eso!!! ademas me sigue molestando que cada chica del equipo gire su vida entorno a sus novios. ¡sean mas independientes!

Found this in a Ocean State Job Lot bin- worth it!

Fun narrator, cute premise, no sex(!?), no cursing ($&@&$), and it had me laughing throughout.

Recommended if you ever wanted a more tame version of the movie "D.E.B.S", and even if you haven't read the first one!

Another book that I absolutely devoured. I wanted to strangle certain characters in this book (ahem, Aiden, ahem)... But only because I love the characters. Can't wait to take on the third installment.
I did like it. Even though it was kind of sad with her bf who cheated and now her friend's bf is in love with her. The third book should be a mess of her trying to figure out what to do. This should be a roller coaster.

From the beginning my first suspect for copy kitten was her bestie and I was right. But still I loved the story and mostly the starting of romance between Joel and Tess.
Ale Heronstairs
Even though I loved Joel, I thought Kira was a total bitch and Aiden.... no comments.
So, is there a third book to that series? I don't find any but it's kind of "open ended", so I want a third book!
Cute, but at times Tessa got kind of annoying. Whereas she was cute and funny in the first book, she was a little over dramatic for me at times in this one.
