Book Review: Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins
Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins
Summary: 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 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?
Rating: 5/5 stars
I just need to say this book was HOT! Kaiden and Anna together! It was like they were melting each others clothes off with their eyes! I have to be honest I've been craving a good bad boy book and I must say this book did not disappoint. If your one to pass this book by just because of its cover, please don't, the writing is actually good and the story line is unquie enough that it was impossible for me to put this book down. I finished it in like a day and a half it was so addicting!
Ok lets talk about Anna. Anna is a normal teen for the most part except she has unusual gifts such as being able to read human and emotions and even feel them. She also have extremely sensitive senses and has an especially strong sense of smell and incredible vision. Anna thinks she's the only one with these talents and doesn't even tell her best friend Jaden about her gifts. She not even sure her adoptive mother Patti knows. That all changes when she meets Kaiden.
Kaiden knows things about Anna. He also happens to be the very attractive drummer in her best friends Jaden's favorite band. So its no surprise that the first time they meet its after his concert. The chemistry is definitely there from the start even though Anna isn't quite sure why Kaiden has such a strong interest in her. The two are then later forced to work together (I won't tell you why) oh and also Anna learns that she's not only part demon but part Angel, hence the crazy powers she has. Kaiden is also part demon, he's the son of the Duke of lust ( this explains why Kaiden has the ability to literally melt anyones heart with one touch!)
I mean I was totally hooked with these two from like chapter 3! Kaiden is just so mysterious and tortured (as a good bad boy should be!) its impossible not to be addicted to their banter and their forbidden kisses! I mean the book would literally go from talking about something totally boring and normal, to a total intense stare down between the two creating all this romantic tension! I mean I think I blushed at some of the parts in this book it was that intense!
Later on in the book you also meet the rest of the half demons (AKA Kaidens "friends") and one of them is yet another mysterious supposedly good looking dude named Koponan. Since I despise love triangles I spent most of the time he talked to Anna pretending he didn't exist, and silently praying he would not ruin everything between Kaiden and Anna. Let me tell you it gets intense between Kaiden and Anna and impossibly complicated which is yet another reason I was glued to this book for an actual day. (I refuse to give up hope! It is not over!)
This book had some serious character development and I honestly found myself falling in love with all the characters towards the end (although I still have a bit of a love hate thing going on with Koponan but well see what happens there) The book really makes you feel everything Anna is going through when she's navigating her past and her battle with darkness. Kaiden's protectiveness of her is SO heart warming I seriously could not get enough! I abosuloutly, totally recommend this book to anyone that loves a little drama or paranormal action! Plus I mean you have to have a soft spot for bad boys this book is like the perfect candidate for best bad boy!
Overall I loved this book! I gave it 5 stars, which I don't do all the time, I usually give most books I love a 4 star rating and only give books I not only loved but they changed my perspective on the way books should be, 5 stars. This book defiantly raised the bar for what a frustratingly perfect book should be like! So please read it and hopefully you will love it as much as I did! (I am so looking forward to the sequel!!!)
