Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins

Me at the ending of the book.

The Cover
Sweet Evil (The Sweet Trilogy, #1)

Don't you just love her dress???
The Summary
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?
The Quotes
“There was nothing healthy about desperately wanting something you couldn't have."
“The beauty of poetry is that it can mean different things to different people at different times.” 
“...there is no way of truly knowing one’s heart until one is put to the test.” 
The Review
5 Stars
Omg! I mean there are not words I can use to describe the loss, happiness, and awesomeness of this book! I mean the characters!  The plot! Ok let me say this one thing right now. You shall be amazed.
The Story
It was original and very well thought out. The plot was very I dunno, interesting(the good kind) and I felt very connected with it. If it had only been Anna though...
What do you get when an angel and a demon collide. An Anna! Poor girl! You find out that 1/2 of you contradicts the other! For the first fourth of the book, before the party, I got really annoyed because she made me feel a bit intimidated with her no swearing, no nonsense way of life. Then we finally get the low down on Kaiden (Ky) and then I finally start to enjoy her pov. When she starts letting lose, I start to relax and finally get into the story. If it had been only Anna I do not think I would make it through the story because like thai, Kai is the spice. (Get it from the quote:"Kai, like thai only yummier.")

Kaiden (Ky)  
Sweet Lord Baby Jesus, he's a brit. and a drummer! Whoop there it is! W/o Kaiden there would be no Sweet Evil, it would be probably be Sweet Anna or something. He brings the evil, he brings the shades of grey between black and white and he brings the comedy. He's not exactly the nicest person ,but he's not exactly the rudest and that's what I like in my guys. He's so 3-D, He has the ability to become a Daniel(From Fallen which is stupid) but he doesn't. He sacrifices himself for Anna and seems willing to die for her even (and if that isn't devotion, what is?) Overall, He's in a close tie with Daemon.

4.5 Stars
