I don’t usually do book reviews, but once in a while a book has me holding it over my head saying “THIS is wonderful. YA lovers neeeeed to read this!” Sweet Evil is one of these. So, here it is. My words, attempting - and failing- to do hers justice.
Sweet Evil was a magnificent read. I was swept away in the writing and characters immediately. Higgins interlaces good and evil in a realistic way and makes you question whether or not she has the inside scoop on these things.
The chemistry between hero and heroine, Anna and Kaidan, is smoking hot. I craved more scenes with them together. I ached for Anna when things didn’t go the way we both wanted. LOL.
Another thing I loved…Higgins wasn’t afraid to go there. She weaves very ugly, very real issues into the story line seamlessly, giving readers a kick in the head reality check. This is life. It isn’t easy for anyone – even those who make it seem that way.
I felt the struggle of her characters, sensed them growing, overcoming, changing. The way hope sprung from impossible circumstance moved me. Sweet Evil had everything I crave in a 5-star read. Toe-curling chemistry, suspense, danger, love, hate, fights, girl power…an atomic bomb of awesome. <– And you can quote me on that. LOL
Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins
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?
