Review: Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins

Sweet Evil (The Sweet Trilogy, #1)
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?
Wow, I've finally gotten the chance to review this book after reading it a whole month ago. If you remember, a few weeks ago I featured the Kaiden Rowe *swooning at just the thought of him* for my Special Someone Saturady (Which you can check out here) and just by how much I fawned over him, I'm pretty sure you could tell I fell in love with Sweet Evil.
Over the past few months I had given up on reading...that too, reading paranormal romances. I am SO glad that I decided to pick up Sweet Evil after two years of owning the book; by doing so, I had one of the best 4 hours in the longest time. I was completely engaged, and there was no way I was going to stop reading to sleep! This is one paranormal romance you don't want to miss!

Anna is this sweet girl who can sense emotions/ auras of other people, but on her sixteenth birthday, everything changes; after finally getting permission to get out of the house to go out with a friend she ends up encountering the elusive Kaiden Rowe *commence swooning,* this hot shot, bad boy, drummer. This connection with Kaiden will completely change Anna's life and everything she has ever believed in.

Now, if you are looking for a romance, you know, a hot, steamy, emotional roller coaster of a romance, this is DEFINITELY the book you need to read next. Higgins portrayed emotions in a way I've never seen emotions portrayed before in a YA novel, all the arguments and conversations felt so real- which is hard to achieve in general, but especially when dealing with unrealistic circumstances as nephilim.

Sweet Evil will satisfy your thirst if you're in search of anything steamy, romantic, emotionally tormenting, funny, snarky, sexy, entertaining, nail-biting, and basically anything else along those lines. This is one of those gems that you have to give a chance, and I am so glad I did! (Big thanks to Twitter for suggesting me to read it, y'all never let me down!) Now that I loved Sweet Evil I somehow need to get my hands on Sweet Peril!)

Rate: 5+/5
