SWEET EVIL by Wendy Higgins

From 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?

This book is the first in a series and is said to be upper YA (for older teens).

Rachel's thoughts: After reading this book, I can say without a doubt, I am a HUGE fan of Wendy Higgins. Forbidden love story? Check. Supernatural elements and world-building that makes sense and feels real? Check. And the pacing, oh the pacing. Lets just say, many a night I stayed up WAY too late hanging out with Anna and Kaidan. I actually read a library copy of this book and then went out to buy my own. The second book in this series, SWEET PERIL comes out later this month, and I'm looking forward to seeing what's next for Anna, Kaidan, and their friends. This book gets FIVE bookmarks from me.
