Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins Review
Reading Level: Young Adult
Publisher: Harper Teen
First book in the Sweet trilogy
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?
Does anyone want to tell me why I didn't read this book a long time ago? No? Okay then. Guys this book was epic! I loved it with all my heart. I read it in about a day. I couldn't put it down. Then when I finished it I wanted more. The storyline was crazy unique. The characters were absolutely amazing. I feel like this book was made for me. Maybe because I'm a pretty good kid so reading something focused on being bad was cool to me. And now sadly I have to wait for the next book.
I loved Anna. She was such an amazing character. I loved that she went from being a good girl to being her version of a bad girl.She only did what was absolutely needed and nothing more. She really came into herself throughout the story. I loved how she tried to stay strong but still let herself have feelings. I also loved how she never gave up on Kai. I can't wait to continue her story. I adored Kai. He isn't the type of character I normally like but I loved him. I felt like we only got to see one side of him. I hope deep down he can be a nice person without losing his bad boy rep. I hope we get to see the nicer side of him in future books. I also hope we get to learn more about him. Kai and Anna were so adorable. If only they could actually be together. That would make me pretty happy. The two of them were what made this book torturous. I wanted them to be happy and cute but it doesn't work that way. I know more of this torture is coming but I can't wait to see where their story goes.
I swear this book had the most amazing storyline ever. It was so unlike anything I've ever read. I loved how unique it was. I loved the bad aspect. It made me wish I had been a bad kid. They seem to have all the fun. We all know I have a special place in my heart for fallen angels. I've never seen them done this way though. I thought the way this author portrayed them was really cool! This book was seriously impossible to put down. It was like a roller coaster that only went up, then it just drops you all of a sudden. I loved it. Overall this was the most amazing read. I wouldn't compare it to any other book. I can not wait to see where the story is going to go. The wait for the sequel is going to make me crazy! If you haven't read this one, you should check it out :).
