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?

Short and Sweet:

It has almost become a game for me lately. Guessing which will the be the next paranormal creature / element that I will grow tired of. First, it was vampires. Then, werewolves. Angel / Demons books are seeming to be the next… unless I keep finding books like Sweet Evil.

Anna was an odd combination for a MC. Part angel, part demon, she basically writes the book on being a conflicted character. Kaidan, as much as I adore you, the verdict technically still out on you after that crazy / conflicted later half of the book. Ugh. And things started out so well for you two. But it just makes me want you two crazy kids together all that more.

Final Verdict:

Sweet Evil completely blows most other angel / demon books out of the water. With an interesting and completely unexpected twist on the whole angel / demon mythos, and a romance that is as delicious as it is frustrating, Sweet Evil has me completely enamored. You will not want to miss this one. And as a small word warning, make sure you are free for a while before you start this one. Because once you get started, you will not want to put it down.

  1. From the beginning of your review, I thought it was going to be negative…then you twisted it! I’m intrigued by the cover with that gorgeous dress-I have such a weakness for books with pretty dresses on the cover.
