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?
Sweet Evil; Wendy Higgins' debut was impressive. It exceeded my expectations and blew me away as I found it to be quite addictive and a really fun book that was far too interesting to put down!
Wendy's writing was simple, yet it was effective. The characters she wrote about were unlike any other I've ever read about. For instance; I was so unsure about Anna as a character. She wasn't weak and dependent upon somebody else, yet she wasn't the most outspoken character either. She was average I guess. She was awesome to read about though and I cannot wait to read the next book; Sweet Hope, to see where this story goes.
As I previously mentioned this book exceeded my expectations. HarperTeen is and always will be one of my favorite publishers(I hope to maybe work there someday), I hadn't read a book produced by the publishing house in a while and this book reminded why I fell in love with the publisher's books and authors in the first place.
This book was published after being discovered on Inkpop; a community which I was too part of and it was interesting to see someone get published through such an awesome publishing house in an unusual way. I am so happy that this book was published!
Sweet Evil was an awesome book that I hope everyone reads! I look forward to more from Wendy Higgins as she improves and becomes all the more awesome. This was a fantastic debut, filled with hot romance, deception, angels and demons of sorts, as well as forbidden love like you've never seen it before!
