Here's the summary from Goodreads: 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. Forced to face her destiny, will Anna embrace her halo or her horns?
What I Liked: 1) Kaiden. Who wouldn't? Hot, totally off limits guy? He even has a sweet side, though he kinda tries to drown that side out. 2) The theme. The theme of the story is rather obvious, the classic battle within yourself between good and evil. But it becomes a lot more intriguing watching Anna struggle with it as she has both demon and angel battling inside her. 3) The passion. There is a lot of passion built up around several different ideas throughout the story. I thought these parts were extremely well written. There were a couple times I was literally holding my breath, and I didn't even realize it until I let it out. 4) Anna's Dad. I fully anticipated not liking him at all, from everything that's said about him before we meet him. But I ended up liking him (as much as you can, anyway). There are two sides to almost everyone in this book, and we've only just begun to learn about some of them. This was one of my favorite things about the book.
What I Didn't Like: Well, I honestly didn't like Anna some of the time. Sometimes she was being really strong and doing what she had to do, but some other times, she was just too....whiny. Naive. Something like that. There were times in the book where she was really starting to get on my nerves. But of course there were other times when she really seemed to be able to hold her own.
Overall Thoughts: Sweet Evil was a fun debut with a great plot and some interesting characters. The story moves steadily, and the the concept of battling demons who are each cursed with one of the seven (plus some other) deadly sins is a really neat take on the fallen angel idea. I can't wait to see what's next in the Sweet Evil trilogy.
My Rating: 4 shots
