{Review} Sweet Evil - Wendy Higgins

Embrace the Forbidden

What if there were teens whose lives literally depended on being bad influences?

This is the reality for sons and daughters of fallen angels.

Tenderhearted Southern girl Anna Whitt was born with the sixth sense to see and feel emotions of other people. She's aware of a struggle within herself, an inexplicable pull toward danger, but Anna, the ultimate good girl, has always had the advantage of her angel side to balance the darkness within. It isn't until she turns sixteen and meets the alluring Kaidan Rowe that she discovers her terrifying heritage and her willpower is put to the test. He's the boy your daddy warned you about. If only someone had warned Anna.

Forced to face her destiny, will Anna embrace her halo or her horns?

This is the first book I've picked up in over a month since all my moving stuff began, so I was looking forward to finally sitting down and getting into something good, this was a great way to rebound into the reading world.

I've read quite a few fallen angel books, but "Sweet Evil" puts a whole new twist on fallen angels and their Nephilim offspring. It was a great debut novel that had me completely enthralled from beginning to end.

The plot was awesome, it started out with a bang and ended with me wanting more, it also made me very irritated the next book doesn't come out until April. I loved the twist of having the Nephilim offspring carrying  out the plans of their demon parents to spread sin around the world. I absolutely adored any and all scenes with interactions between Anna and Kaidan, there is some serious heat there. Speaking of Kaidan, I've come to the conclusion that hot mysterious bad boy types that are in bands are my book weakness and Kaidan Rowe trumps them all until someone proves to me otherwise. The will they or wont they throughout the story had me eagerly wanting to continue reading.

The ending left me a little sad but definitely yearning for more. I guess I just have to impatiently wait for "Sweet Peril" to come out so I can have my Kaidan fix.

  1. I actually haven't read any fallen angel books...where the bad guys were the good guys (if that makes sense). Am I missing out...?
