Summary (via Goodreads):
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 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?
I had heard a lot about Sweet Evil, mostly positive things such as Kaidan was up there with Daiman and Dante as far as ‘bad boy’ awesomeness. I wouldn’t say I liked his character as much as those two but he was still a fairly interesting character to me. My favorite thing about him–his accent.
The main character, Anna, was fine. Nothing outstanding, nothing that really made her stand out to me. Her romance with Kaidan seemed a bit insta-love to me but it was still enjoyable for the most part.
When we really got to see the Dukes (fallen angels) in action was when I found the story to be the most interesting and unpredictable. I will say I sped through reading it, pacing was fast and there was enough action to keep the pages turning. Some of the dialog veered on the silly at times but nothing too detrimental.
From what I’ve seen most people seem to either love this book or hate it. I’m very much just in the middle. I am glad I read it, was enjoyable but I’m not running out to get the sequel, though I’m sure I’ll read it eventually.
