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 16 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?

Just a book fool.
Alright so this might be a bit schizophrenic... Sweet Evil is one of those books that starts out pretty strong and just when you think its going to elevate it takes a serious dive. I think this happens because the author wants to leave us hanging for her second installment (which I really HATE btw.)
This is a unique take on the Angel stories as its pretty close to what the Bible teaches. The most interesting bit being that God is actually involved. How many Angel books have you read where the "Angels" don't even believe in God? The answer is a lot. Unique for the win.
I really liked our bad boy, and I mostly liked our "good girl" heroine. Although, I definitely liked her better when she was misbehaving. By the end of the book I kind of wanted to push her off look-out peek. Though I can't be sure if that is the character or the narrator.
All and all this book was more then a wee bit annoying in its lack of progress. There is barely any action and freaking nothing gets resolved. NOTHING....
So if you don't mind some pretty gory imagery and LOTS unresolved teen angst then give this one a go. It really is unique in its genre.
I really enjoyed this book including the narrator! As I said, I am all over bad boy books and this one... Kaiden, just couldn't get any badder! The son of a fallen angel, drummer of a band on top of speaking with an English Accent? I was done for!
Also, Anna's sweet girl personality didn't come off as self-righteous or snobby, but there were a few times where I felt she did get a little "preachy". Other than that I thought the characters, 1st and 2nd drew me in quick. I would have loved to see more Kopano.. maybe the sequel will have him? I hope so!
I don't think I would classify this as a teen book. With all the sex, drugs and some language, I wouldn't want my teens reading it until they were at least 17.
I thought the story was fairly original. I liked the interpersonal relationships between the characters and it really kept my attention.
I liked how Annie really grew into herself and you could see her evolve throughout the book. I also liked the love triangle tension.
This was great. It definitely kept me listening longer than I thought I would.
I can't wait for sequels!
I have to say that I loved being read to by Erin Mallon. She has this sultry voice that had me gripped right to the story like I was there. The way she changed characters effortlessly is a thing no one person can ,master.
I will listen to Sweet Evil over and over again for years to come!
Kaidan is my favorite character because he is the son of Lust. He has so many facets and layers to himself that when he meets Anna she unravels them all and he finds it hard to breathe.
My favorite scene in the book is the party. That party scene was crazy where Anna and the gang had to work and Anna had to prove to everyone she could be the bad girl and do her fathers bidding.
Yes the scene in the alley where Kaidan kisses Anna for all she is worth.
Erin did a great job and I look forward to listening to more books from her!
The sweetness and innocence of a teenage girl. Forced to grow up fast.
The view on how demons would behave if they were on earth.
Sweet, engaging, endearing
Mostly it is a cute story.
The narration was good but the story is awesome. I need to know what happens next. My heart aches for Kai. Picking up book two right away.
Well, I've had this book forever and every time I started to pick it up to read it, something else would come up. A sweet girl who follows my blog told me she would like for me to read it,and for a while now, my friend Nereyda has been encouraging me to get into audio books, so I decided to get the whole series on audio, and slap me silly for waiting so long, but I totally loved it. I knew I would after all the rave reviews and everything I've heard about this series and Kaidan Rowe. The story itself was awesome. Angel and Demon stories are hit and miss for me and this one was definitely a hit. As for the characters. Anna was great, and I just knew I was going to love Kaidan after all the hype, but the fact is, I did not like him very much at all for most of the novel. He had his moments, but he really acted like a jerk - granted a hot jerk - but a jerk nonetheless. Now before you stone me, I understand why he was the way he was and by the end of the book he had won me over and left me itching to get started on Sweet Peril.
My Opinion: Great story, beautifully written, fantastic characters - definitely get this if you haven't read it yet, and to all you who have already read it - you were so right - I loved it!
"Good read. Bad accents"
Love love love this book so bought the audiobook and still love it besides the terrible British accents, why do Americans think we all sound like this?!? Be less offensive to keep them in American voices.
