What if there were teens whose lives depended on being bad influences? This is life for sons and daughters of fallen angels in Sweet Evil.

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 will-power is put to the test. He’s the boy your daddy warned you about. If only someone had warned Anna.

A cross-country trip to meet her father forces Anna to face the reality that hope and love are not options for her kind. When she confronts her destiny, will Anna embrace her halo or her horns?

Taschima's POV:

Sweet Evil hits all the right spots. I can honestly say I was captivated beyond belief with with novel. The characters, the plot, the folklore, the angels, the demons... It's the most refreshing take on the battle between good and evil, between angels and demons, that I have seen in quite a while. You have to read this!

Sweet Evil... it even has a cool name. And a fantastic cover. And a kick ass story line with good characters who develop throughout the story and are believable. The bad boy doesn't change his roots over night, the good girl doesn't change her personality over night either, and the extra characters are enjoyable. No love triangle (sorry for those who like them, hooray for those who don't), and the romance it's steaaamy! It had my reaching for my fan a couple of times.

Let's start with what drives every story, the characters. Anna, while at first I was annoyed with the whole good girl thing as the story advanced she grew on me. She started growing and coming out of her shell while still remaining a good and strong girl at heart. The only thing left annoying about her? The crying. She seemed to cry every other page. Get a grip girl. Stop crying a fucking river. Bad things happen. But other than that we are good, I really like you and think we could be great friends.

But the one who kept me at the edge of my seat was definitely Kaidan, oh boy. If there ever was a swoon worthy character in YA literature is him.  He i
s the son of the Duke of Lust for crying out loud! Being sexy is his job! Plus he is British!!! Freaking sexy accent going on in my head. Every time he let out a "luv" I was hyperventilating. Though sometimes I think the British didn't show enough.

The story as a whole was fantastic. As I said before it was a new take on the battle between angels and demons, but it also had a new take on the son's and daughter's of the fallen angels, the Nephilim. It. Was. So. GOOD! Entertaining! You have to give it a try. The Nephilim are supposed to be bad influences. That is a pretty cool idea. There are also guardian angels, demon whisperers, the messenger of Lucifer... It has a lot, and I can only imagine what is going to come next.

Definitely one of the best books of 2012.


  1. Did someone mention a British hero? *automatically jumps book to the top of her TBR pile*

  2. This book sounds awesome definitely can't wait to read it thanks for the review!


  3. I finished this one earlier this week and will be posting my review in a couple weeks but let me just say I loved it!!! I am a total Kaidan groupie. :)
