Review: Wendy Higgings – Sweet Evil (The Sweet Trilogy #1)

Blurb: 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? (source: goodreads.com)

I already read a few books about angels, fallen angels or their children, so Sweet Evil was quite a must-read for me – and I don’t regret it.
Sweet Evil is a thrilling, cute, hot, sexy and funny story about the children of fallen angels, called Nephilim – I really fell in love with this story!

Anna as the main character of the book is very nice. She was likeable from the very beginning and her decisions she made during the book were all comprehensible.
Her situation is a special one. Usually, the Nephilim are ~only children of a fallen angel – or a demon, that’s what they’re called in the book – and a human woman, but Anna is special – her mother was an angel, I mean an angel from heaven. During the book she struggles with her good and her bad side. And it is awesome how her bad side shows itself more and more.

Sure there is also a guy for Anna – Kaidan Rowe. Ladies, he’s really swoon-worthy … and has an English accent. (I fell for him at the very beginning) He’s also Nephilim (well, there’s no other option, right?^^) and shows Anna the basics of a Nephilim life.

The romance between the two of them was hot and heart-breaking at the same time. Anna’s and Kaidan’s road-trip was funny and sweet and … I wish it didn’t end.

All the other relationships where Anna is involved are great and well-written. Anna’s demonic father and her new Neph friends – I really liked them.

What I didn’t like was the beginning. For example, I thought it was too fast that Anna and Kaidan went on the road-trip. She didn’t know him very well, she only talked to him twice and after this her “mother” let her go with him?
Besides this there were a few other things I didn’t really understand. There was a lack of explanation and I sometimes wished there were more details.

The ending … I expected something like this, but anyway, I wanted to kick somebody when I finished the book *lol*
But with this little cliffhanger I’m even more excited for book two! Bring it on!

Altogether: 4 of 5 stars.
