Sweet Evil and Wendy Higgins

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?

I fell in love with this book from the beginning. There was something about Anna - something not so "goody good" or "too pure" but normally good - if that doesn't make sense to anyone - I understand - but it did make sense in my head. Anna is part light angel and part fallen angel. And while Kaiden and her father, Belial, are protective of her, Anna has what no other Neph has - Patti. Her adoptive mother is a wonderfully supportive and loving mother. Patti I think is the real reason that Anna stays on the "right path.

The nephilim in this story have to "work" and what that means who ever their demonic father's vice is, they have to get human commit that sin. Kaiden (who shares the last name as my boyfriend) has lust - so he has to go out, sleep with people, and make it so they never forget him, ultimately ruining them. Anna's and Belial's vice is addictive substances. She has to get people to drink or do drugs - and give into it. While Anna is against all this - she is put in between the rock and the hard spot to make a decision.

Kaiden - swoon - lust - While I mentioned earlier that Kai has to sleep with women. This sets him up to never be able to love. How could you love someone and every night go out and sleep with him. And while I think I am a very secure person, over my cold dead body would my boyfriend/husband/ romantic love interest go and sleep with someone else.  But Kai is very lovable and you guessed it - Anna and him attract. TALK ABOUT SOME LUSTFUL SCENES!

Belial and Kai try and hide Anna from the other fallen angels and neph because of Anna's heritage. She is different from all neph and by the end we start to piece together how important Anna is to the fallen angel and angels of light battle that is coming.

It's the first five I have given in awhile. Go read it.
