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?
Anna can see people's colors (auras and moods); she can hear up to a mile away and smell pancakes cooking on the next block. She does not drink, is waiting to have sex until marriage, and does not lie. Anna is the daughter of a guardian angel and a demon. Her angelic side may have more control, but once she meets Kaiden, the son of another demon, she is thrown into the world of the Nephilim, the children of demons, where survival depends upon embracing vice. Nephilim are expected to "work" to spread sin; those who do not are killed by their fathers, and they are certainly not allowed to have feelings for one another. One hundred percent fantasy and romance, Sweet Evil follows the current formula set forth by Twilight. Kaiden introduces Anna to the world of the Nephilim and refuses to be with her to protect them both; she becomes depressed in response, and a second, safe love interest is introduced. The book, however, is well written and enticing. Paranormal romance fans will line up to read it. One steamy encounter, the Nephilim's assignments, and encounters with demons make this book more appropriate for a mature reader, as allusions to sex, drinking, and drugs abound. Though the ending is a bit unbelievable, even by supernatural standards, it will draw readers back for the remainder of the Sweet Trilogy. Reviewer: Katie Sadowski
