Mini Review: Sweet Evil

ISBN: 0062085611
Pages: 453

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?

Hello guys! Welcome to my second mini review! I'm still working out how I want to format everything for these reviews, but for the time being, I'm going to keep everything the same. 

First off, I've heard so many good things about the Sweet Trilogy and the third book: Sweet Reckoning is coming out on April 29th this year. I haven't read many books dealing with the Nephilim, but I had a general idea about who and what they were. The beginning of the book recounts Anna's birth and it was actually kind of heartbreaking to read. Her mother dies because that's what happens when you birth a Nephilim, and her father gets arrested. Instead of being your typical goody two shoes, Anna is literally destined for evil which makes her a more complex character in my perspective. Kaidan on the other hand is 100% evil. The son of the Duke of Lust, he's someone that you are warned to avoid. At first, I didn't like Kaidan and Anna's relationship because he seemed so "bad" it didn't fit with her pure image. That, and the fact that Nephs were strictly forbidden to be together. After a while, I did start to like them better, but at this point they're not my favorite couple. One more thing to mention, the Dukes. Holy angels, they scare the heck out of me. That whole meeting and whisperers, and Anna, and angels, oh my freaking gods. (Had to get that out.) I am now fully in contact with the world of the Nephilim, and I have to say, Wendy Higgins did a really good job in creating the whole story and I honestly can't wait to finish the second book! (Yes, I'm currently reading it). Definitely recommend, it's a pretty exciting read. :)

(That accent tho...)

3.5 out of 5 stars
