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 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 loved this book, I really did. It was so different from the other angel/aura-seeing books I've read in the past. It's original and it makes me want to think that there are people out there that actually live lives like the Neph in Sweet Evil, and I'm a very realistic person. This book was so original and I LOVED the characters. I could tell the transitions that Anna went through and every struggle she had with Kaidan felt personal to me.

One thing I have to say about this book is that it was boring, then something very dramatic happened, then something boring, and rinse and repeat. I felt like things didn't start to get really action-y until there were 20 pages left in the book. Other than that, I can't think of much else to say that's negative. I love the diversity of the characters and the background story of the book. I'm glad to say I've never read a book that could compare to this one when it comes to the fallen angel/heaven vs. hell. It's just too original. I enjoyed reading this book and I cannot wait for the sequel.
