Kurzbeschreibung

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?

3.0 von 5 Sternen I am bad, but I do not know it.... 22. Januar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
The story is nice but not quite ambitious. A girl who lives like a religious and overprotected live discovers that she is a nephilim. Well, what a pitty if you should be bad but you have no idea how to play this game. On top a handsome guy who is the personalized lust and tries to talk every woman round especially the good girl.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ich will MEHR! 1. Juni 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Das Buch war der absolute Hammer! Es war viel besser als ich es erwartet hatte. Kaidan und Anna sind ein tolles Paar und es ist nicht so das Kaidan auf einmal total "Gut" ist, wie es in vielen anderen Büchern der Fall ist. Hier gibt es auf und abs, was die Story noch spannender macht.
Allerdings muss ich für die Verarbeitung des Covers einen halben Punkt abziehen. Es gibt keine Schutzhülle oder sowas. Man muss unglaublih vorsichtig mit dem Buch umgehen, da es sehr schnell Macken bekommt.
Aber dafür kann natürlich die Autorin nichts und deshalb finde ich, dass das Buch die fünf Sterne absolut verdient hat. Kann es gar nicht erwarten den zweiten Teil zu lesen und hoffe, dass noch weitere Bücher der Autorin folgen werden, denn ich liebe ihren Schreibstil!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A seductively delicious treat! 5. März 2013
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
SWET EVIL is so forbiddingly well written that I can't imagine anyone ever setting this book aside for more than a few minutes after starting it. Well, I needed to for bathroom and kitchen breaks, but believe me, I would have read straight on from beginning to end if that was possible.

Anna is one heroine I could almost 100 % identify with. A very rare occurance. She's the good girl, shy and very emotional about everything.
That Anna is one of a kind adds thrill and curiosity to the story. She is angel and demon all at once. Having an angelic mother and a demonic father. Everything's new to her and she has yet to find her destiny and place in life. How evil does she have to be to survive the Dukes constant supervision and how much evil might kill the goodness that makes her the person she is?

Kaidan, our male protagonist, is pure dynamite. Erasing every other book boy from my dreams. Well, as the son of Pharzuph he knows how it's done. Ladies, get ready to be expertly seduced! Kaidan Rowe is attractive, sexy and even if he would never admit it, he has a heart and is very capable of using his brain and not only..yeah, you know.

The contrast between Anna and Kaidan is enormous at first look. He is the bad boy, having to have as much sex as possible to please his demonic father of lust. Anna is the angelic good girl. You'll see them being together is an explosive combination. Anna will be tested and also Kaidan has to face who he really is.
I like how much Wendy Higgins extracts from her characters and gifts to us readers. Her characters are made of awesome!

There was one teeny tiny thing that bugged me though. Wendy Higgings incorporated a few German sentences, which I really appreciate. More foreign languages in YA English books, please!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Mind-blowing 9. Juli 2012
Von FairyTale
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Dark. Heart-breaking. Thrilling. Sexy. It's all there. 'Sweet Evil' features the whole emotion palette, and leaves nothing out. The way it twists and plays with emotion makes is mesmerizing and most definitely one of a kind. Just let me be clear on one thing: it's nothing it purports to be.

Both the blurb and the cover scream 'steamy, light YA fantasy' and try to convince with the usual clichés of good girl falls for bad boy, bad boy is not so bad after all, he's only 'protecting' her, because they cannot be together, blah, blah, blah... You all know that one, right? Although 'Sweet Evil' doesn't lack clichés, it always brings along a unique twist, somethign that gives it its very own coloring. It's hard to explain without spoiling, but it just makes other YA novels pale in comparison.

There's also nothing light about this story. This is not a novel to pass a few hours with every now and then. It's intense and edgy and kind of won't leave your head for days.

As for my opinion, I'm still torn.
It's a very character-driven storyline. There are hardly action-scenes which doesn't mean the story isn't fast-paced. It does keep you intrigued, or actually glued to the pages and effortelssly. The author's spin on the angel/demon lore absolutely fascinated me - the idea of demons living as Dukes of he sins on earth and forcing their offspring to 'work' for them is so genious, I don't think I'll ever be able to read another angel themed books without thinking how Higgins did it so much better.

And here goes my problem.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not as great as expected, but still good 10. Mai 2012
Von Catie Taylor - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
I'm really torn about this one. I have been anticipating this book for awhile now and I think I worked myself into such excitement that it was easy to be let down, and for the same reason I continually tried to push my way through the not-so-great parts hoping that my premature fan-girling would be justified. I have seen so many reviewers raving about this book like it's the second coming of the Twilight phenomenon and certainly they are more than entitled to their opinions (that is what we bloggers do right?) but I just didn't get that thrill. Sweet Evil is not by any means a bad read, but it also is not the amazing story I expected it to be. I went into it expecting steamy romance, thrilling action and a gripping, unique plot. I got about half of those things which isn't too bad, but after being so excited to read it, it fell short.

As always let's start with the good (including that absolutely gorgeous cover). Steam. The steaminess of this book cannot be denied. There were certainly times when I felt like I needed to open a window and just cool off for a second. In fact, parts of the book, felt more adult than young adult. This is probably because the main heartthrob of the story, Kaidan Rowe, is the son of the Duke of Lust. He definitely takes after his father. He, naturally, falls for sweet little Anna who never swears, or lies, or drinks and certainly does not do anything Kaidan might have in mind. When the two of them have to travel cross-country alone things really heat up. One of the most redeeming things about the book is the way that Anna and Kaidan change each other throughout the story. Anna lets down her guard a little when she's with Kaidan and he, in turn, allows her to see glimpses of his vulnerability. They really start to love each other, in large part because of Kaidan's damage from never truly having love in his life. One of the sweetest lines in the book comes from Anna's inner dialogue after discussing Kaidan's loveless upbringing:

"I tried to imagine young, inquisitive Kaidan looking up at the demon in his life, desperate for his attention. I wished I could hold that little boy." - Ch. 14

The love between the two of them is what we all like to see in books, raw and real and deep. Another part of the book that I enjoyed was the mythology. Higgins does a great job of setting up the mythology behind the angels and the demons and their children. She also does not have any qualms with being very brutal about the way the demons behave. There are parts of this book that are very hard to get through because they are violent and heart wrenching, which I think is important when we are talking about evil. She really drives the point home.

That's where the love sort of stopped for me. As far as uniqueness goes, I can't really say the plot was all that different from most paranormal romances. Good girl meets bad guy. Girl tries to change guy. Bad guy is still bad, but broken underneath. Girl finds out she has flaws too. They can't be together but probably will, maybe, at some point. It's fun and everything, but I was hoping for more of a different vibe with this one. The only real difference I can see is that Kaidan isn't really the hero type. He has a tendency to stand around and be freaked out when Anna is in mortal peril instead of actually jumping in and doing something about it. And then there's Anna. Don't get me wrong, I liked Anna, but I didn't love her. She seemed weak and scared all the time and she cries almost constantly. I'm a big crier, but Anna put me to shame. I kept wanting to shake her and say "Snap out of it! You have important things to be concentrating on!" Next, there's the resolution problem. I didn't feel like this book had much of a resolution. It is going to be part of a series so obviously they can't explain everything in the first book, but after I finished it I kind of felt jipped. It felt like the entire book was just a prelude to the next one. Finally, I felt like there was a lot of finger wagging going on. I realize it's a book about angels and demons, but I just felt preached to much of the time. It seemed a little judge-y.

Basically, this book was entertaining. And it did keep me reading. Unfortunately I didn't feel like there was a great pay off. I would still recommend this book if you want something to keep you engaged for a few days and I will be reading the next one because I need to know what happens. I just hope that the rest of the series is a little meatier.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A deliciously wicked, all-consuming and immensely entertaining read 1. Mai 2012
Von Fiktshun - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Anna Whitt always knew she was different. Being able to see and feel the moods and emotions of everyone around her made it pretty hard not to realize just how different she was.

But until the day she met Kaidan Rowe she thought she'd kept her abilities a secret. And yet he knew. With just one look it was as if he was able to see everything she'd been hiding her entire life.

And she wanted answers.

Even if being around him was dangerous. Even if she felt inexplicably drawn to him in a way she had never felt drawn toward anyone else.

And even if it meant losing her heart to someone who didn't ask for it, didn't want it and didn't care if he broke it.

Because finding answers to questions she'd had her entire life seemed worth the risk of a broken heart.

But in her search for answers, the stakes will be raised and she'll be forced to choose between good and evil. And this time it won't be only her heart she could lose, but her life and the lives of those she loves.

***

Perfectly titled, Sweet Evil is exactly that. A deliciously wicked, sinfully good and all-consuming story that readers will devour every morsel of and still be hungry for more.

Author Wendy Higgins' debut novel is absolutely riveting. The introduction is enticing. The story is intense and enthralling. And the characters are alluring, intriguing, lovable, despicable, maddening and totally unforgettable. They're characters readers will want to know and want to know more of.

With every page, the author draws readers deeper into the world of good and evil that she created. A world where demons roam the earth masked in human form, using their offspring to do their bidding - spreading chaos, fear, hatred, lust, envy, violence.

And then there's Anna. A girl who battles against the evil within. Choosing light over darkness. Good over evil. Right over wrong. Until the day she meets Kaidan Rowe and her entire world changes.

Always knowing that she was different, but never really knowing why, Anna hid her abilities from her best friend Jay and from Patti, the only mother she'd ever known. Keeping them in the dark made her feel at least somewhat normal, even if she knew she wasn't.

Yet from the moment Kaidan set eyes on her, he somehow knew she was not like everyone else. He could see what others couldn't. He could sense things about her that she didn't even know about herself. And she was immediately drawn to him.

But learning the true nature of who she is and who he is comes at a price. She will be forced to choose sides. And if she chooses not to embrace her darker nature, she will not only be putting her own life in danger, but the lives of everyone she cares about. Including Kaidan.

Even at nearly five hundred pages, Sweet Evil is an easy one-sit-read. With a blistering pace, an intoxicating storyline, and a fascinating world the author built around her characters, this book will be impossible to put down. Even after the last word on the last page.

It's addictive. It's delectable. It's dangerous. It's sexy. It's dark. It's gorgeous. It's unpredictable. It's torturous. It's pure, sweet evil.

4.0 von 5 Sternen An AMAZING debut that's more than just another angel book! 2. Mai 2012
Von Mimi Valentine - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This has to be one of the best angel books to ever hit the shelves! Not just because the angel lore was completely original or because there's a boy with an English accent, but because Wendy Higgins must be an angel in disguise since she writes them so well.

In Sweet Evil, the sole purpose of Nephilim is to be a bad influence to humans. But that's not as easy as it sounds when the angel hierarchy is so complicated. When we learn everything along with Anna in the beginning, it's hard not to say, "Wow!" because the lore is captivating. And the demon action, especially in the end? It will give you chills!

At first I didn't know what to think of Anna. She seemed too good and too sweet at times to be real. But she grew on me so fast and showed how even though she wasn't outwardly bad-ass, she was still one of the strongest, most determined heroines out there. She stood her ground when most girls wouldn't have, and I ended up adoring her completely.

Her romance with the English-accented Kaidan Rowe (son of the demon of Lust) may take front and center once they take off on a road trip together to find out more about Anna's past, but it's in no way overwhelming! It's the sweet, not-so-innocent pull between opposites that will make you grin. Along with the fantastic interactions with their demonic fathers and with their friends, Sweet Evil is filled with well-written relationships.

Both sweet and sensual, Sweet Evil is an angel book that will steal your breath, your heart, and maybe a little bit of your innocence at the exact same time. It took a few chapters to hook me in (although that may have to do with the fact I read it after a particularly epic book), but in the end, it was AWESOME and I'd definitely recommend it!

BUY or BORROW?: English boy fan? Buy it! Angel book fan? Buy it! All-books-in-general fan? Buy it! I think you know where I'm going with this... ;)

4.0 von 5 Sternen The Unofficial Addiction Book Fan Club Review: Definitely a fan of the SWEET TRILOGY 23. April 2014
Von The Unofficial Addiction Book Fan Club - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
We are The Unofficial Addiction Book Fan Club, to know more about this book, go to the post in our website.

REVIEW:

Sweet Evil's the perfect first book for the Sweet Trilogy. It's a refreshing story about angels and demons and nephilim worth reading.

The story starts with sweet, innocent Anna whose life is as normal as any teenage life can be. That's until she meets hot, sexy and dangerous Kaidan Rowe. That's when she learns about the Nephilims, children of angels that were cast out of heaven. Each Nephilim has a urge that can be easily confused as a curse, they inherit their fathers sins and they have to work with them, corrupting people or they die by the hands of their own fathers.
Anna's been always a good girl, but meeting Kaidan might chance that. Because, after all, he's the guy that make good girls go bad.

I loved this story. Wendy Higgins story's not like any other angel story that you might say: "oh, another one." Not at all. I think that I have been waiting so long to read this series 'cause I thought it would be that: just another angel story. But I'm glad I was wrong.

The relationship between the two main characters, Kai and Anna is simply hilarious and filled with a lot of sexual tension that can reach even the reader. In this story, Anna's the perfect representation of sweet, pure and naïve and that brings a lot of funny situations and scenes into the story. I like how Kai tries to control himself without losing his very own essence. And I loved picturing Kaidan with british accent *sigh*.

I have a hard time relating to Anna in this book 'cause she's so good that makes the reader feel bad. I mean she's never tell a lie. NEVER. Can you tell me you have never ever ever ever told a lie? I can't. And that's why I felt like such a bad person. And I can't blame Kaidan for feeling what he feels about Anna's purity. I mean, I was feeling that I was unworthy of reading her point of view and being "inside her head", imagine falling for her!

As I said, this first book is all about Anna finding herself and trying to understand what's her place in all of this world. I definitely recommend to all potential fans to not give up on this book and to keep reading until the second book to have a general opinion. I've read all three books and I have a very different perspective than from the first book alone. And if I had to give stars to the whole Trilogy, it would definitely and without a doubt would be a five stars; you-have-to-read-it-now stars.

1.0 von 5 Sternen What is this?! I can't even... 18. Mai 2012
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Yes, Sweet Evil does put an original spin on all the angel/demons/nephilim stories that are out there. But nevertheless, this does not alter the fact that it's still complete and utter rubbish. The sheer amount of ridiculousness in this 464 pages long novel is dumbfounding. I spent a great deal of time laughing in disbelief or growling in frustration because of it.

The characters are as one dimensional as a stick figure. Their behavior is odd (I don't know of a single person who talks and acts like these characters do), OOC and illogical. And sometimes even just plain wrong.

Anna is the mother of goodie-two-shoes. She doesn't lie. (Well, she did once... On purpose. Shocker! Wait till you read what she lied about. LOL. *rolls eyes*) Words like sexy and hott--yes, with a double t--didn't exist in her vocabulary until she met Kaidan. She cries all the time. She's naïve. She says one thing, but does the other. She goes all `Double Rainbow' over seeing a rainbow and crossing the state border. The only thing I couldn't figure out about her--and what drove me a bit crazy--is why the hell she doesn't own a cell phone.

Her adoptive mother, Patti, is the worst and most awkward parent ever. Not only did she knowingly allow her just-turned 16-year-old (and extremely naïve) daughter on a 5-day cross-country trip with a 17-yeard-old boy that she doesn't know at all (and I mean AT ALL), oh no, she also went down the awkward route and told that same boy to bring her daughter back with her virtue intact.

"Hands off, Mister!"

Yes, she actually said that. Who talks like this? And what adult weeps like a 10-year-old when facing a problem?

Anna's father is the Duke of drinking and drug abuse. He and his demon minions are responsible for all the drunks and drug addicts in this world, basically. So, being the good father that he is, he shows his daughter how to hold her liquor.

"You're gonna need to learn your drinking limits. I don't want you to end up in a situation where you don't know your boundaries."
"How am I supposed to learn?"
"You drink. Under my supervision. Well figure out how much you can handle in a certain amount of time, and practice controlling it so you can stay coherent and not get drunk."

WHAT?!
I know she's supposed to lure people into drinking and stuff, but there are things/words no father, demon or not, should teach or say to his child.

And then there's Kaidan. Or as Anna once said: "Kai, like Thai, only yummier." (*rolls eyes*) He is in a band, he has the looks, an English accent and is the son of the Duke of Lust--totally swoon-worthy bad boy material, right? No. Nope. Absolutely not. A tortured, brooding and fairly boring man-slut/male prostitute, that's the best and only way to describe Kai. I was utterly disgusted every time he said to Anna that he needs to go `working.' How can you fall for someone who needs to, yes, needs to, bang some bimbo's brains out every night is beyond my understanding.

Just like the characters, the story did, too, rub me totally the wrong way. Higgins completely failed to create a believable and internally consistent narrative. It went from one ridiculous and odd thing to another. The way she moved the story from point A to point B was unsettling. It gave me the feeling that she didn't care at all how strange and downright bizzare certain things would sound or look like. As if all that she wanted was to get the characters/storylines into a desired position as quickly as possible. Screw logic and common sense.

» No money for a road trip? Let the loaded 17-year-old boy, the MC and her mother just met, offer them both a ride.

» A road trip with a parent would be boring and the parent would endanger the opportunity for long lustful nights? Just write down that the mother has to work. No reader will mind that her child is only sixteen. She will totally come off as a hip and cool mom.

» But where will they sleep? They can't rent a room in a motel. Duh, just make Kaidan an emancipated minor.

» It's time to bring daddy into the picture, but he's in prison and you really need him out of there? How convenient that he happens to have a parole hearing coming up. That's just so dandy!
I could go on and on...

And don't even let me start how pointless the whole road trip was in the end.

Would I recommend this read? No, absolutely not. Not even to my biggest enemy. But seeing how many other readers were thrilled by this book... I don't know. Maybe some of you will, for some inexplicable reason, actually like it. But Sweet Evil most definitely wasn't my cup of tea.
