Sometimes life throws a few curveballs at us. Just ask Jada who is still reeling from the devastating blow her husband inflicts on her when he not only ends their twelve-year marriage, but also remarries and starts a family. And if it is not enough, she is unemployed and has to depend on selling erotic toys to meet her monthly financial obligations.
Then there is Mason, Jada’s best friend’s brother, who is forced to become the man of the house at age fourteen when his father dies unexpectedly, leaving him little me-time, even as an adult, to enjoy the simple things in life. Thus, his life revolves around taking care of his mother and sister, and working from Monday to Monday at his law firm.
Farrah Rochon’s novel, A Little Bit Naughty, takes a look at how these two souls first fight against and then succumb to the attraction they feel for each other. No doubt, it is a refreshing read. The banter between Jada and Mason is authentic, the relationship between Jada and her two best friends is relatable and the inner and external conflicts are such that they help to move the plot along.
Though A Little Bit Naughty is a short read, it deals with such issues as betrayal, friendship, sex, unemployment and love and would surely delight readers, especially when they see how much Jada and Mason transform as a result of loving each other. The epilogue gives readers the opportunity to see how happy they are together, at least, for now.
