193 – Sweet Evil (The Sweet Trilogy #1) by Wendy Higgins

Sweet EvilI found this book via Goodreads after seeing that a friend I follow raved about it.  I figured I’d give it a shot since it seemed to be such a light read and would work for a vacation book.  Here’s the Goodreads summary:

“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?”

I’m not really sure where to start with this book. I liked the world depicted in it. I liked the main character, for the most part. I liked the male lead a lot. The story itself was drawn out longer than I thought it needed to be. It was also pretty predictable. Overall, it wasn’t bad. There was just something missing for me.

Maybe I just got annoyed at the overall perfect circumstances, or how Anna’s dad wasn’t this big, bad dude. I’m not sure. The ending ticked me off. I hate when books just leave you hanging. If it had been a real cliffhanger, that’d be one thing. All this did was set up for another book. That’s annoying to me. Give me closure or give me the biggest cliffhanger ever. Don’t give me this cheap, crappy ending.

So yeah…I’m interested in knowing what happens in the rest of the series, but I won’t be rushing out to buy the books. In fact, I’m disappointed I bought this book instead of getting it from the library. That money could have been better spent.
