Publisher's 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 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?

Eh...

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 am a sucker for Bad Boys!

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.

Surprisingly good!

What did you love best about Sweet Evil?

I thought the story was fairly original. I liked the interpersonal relationships between the characters and it really kept my attention.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Sweet Evil?

I liked how Annie really grew into herself and you could see her evolve throughout the book. I also liked the love triangle tension.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

This was great. It definitely kept me listening longer than I thought I would.

The Sweetest Evil I have Ever Heard!

What did you love best about Sweet Evil?

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.<br/><br/>I will listen to Sweet Evil over and over again for years to come!

Who was your favorite character and why?

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.

Which scene was your favorite?

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.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes the scene in the alley where Kaidan kisses Anna for all she is worth.

Any additional comments?

Erin did a great job and I look forward to listening to more books from her!

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.

*insert english accent* Hello Love

What did you like most about Sweet Evil?

finding out who Anna is was amazing<br/>Just wish she wasn't so goodie goodie but then there wouldnt be a story i guess :)

What did you like best about this story?

All the characters within the story where battleing fear but became friends more then that they formed a bond under the want and need for love and freedom side characters became important having a role of a main character got lost between the love of anna and kaiden and discovery of self was key

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Meeting Anna's Father and of cause Kaidan
