“The fierce longing that had surged up in her so swiftly receded with a sharp recoil that was like an elastic band springing back. She went numb, even as Sebastian’s lips pressed down on hers and his hands moved to cup the back of her neck—she went numb with an icy shock of wrongness. Something was terribly wrong, something even more than her hopeless longing for someone she could never have. This was something else: a sudden jolt of horror, as if she’d been taking a confident step forward and suddenly plunged into a black void.” page 174

“Sometimes” Simon shook his head.”Clary, you’re crazy.”
Her heart sank. “You mean…”
“I mean that I would never date a girl who insisted that I cut you out of my life. It’s non-negotiable. You want a piece of all this fabulousness?” He gestured at himself. “Well, my best friend comes along with it. I wouldn’t cut you out of my life, Clary, any more than I would cut off my right hand and give it to someone as a Valentine’s Day gift”
“Gross,” said Clary. “Mus you?”
He grinned. “I must.” page 524


Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins

Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins

What if there were teens whose lives depended on being bad influences?
This is the reality for sons and daughters of fallen angels in Sweet Evil.

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? From Goodreads.

The title of this book is perfect for the whole thing. I love how Anna doesn’t give into the pressure around and how good she actually is. Even better is that she isn’t the pushy kinda good too. She cares about her best friend Jay so much that she doesn’t let him give in to his possible addictive nature and she loves her adopted mom Patti just as much.

Anna finds out she is Nephilim but not really. Yea it’s one of those kind of things but it’s pretty awesome when she meets her dad and he tells her his story. She is his only kid ever. This means she is special but of course everyone who ever meets her knows she is.

She meets Kaidan at one of his shows Jay takes her too. And she instantly lusts after him which says how hot he is. Every girl wants him and he doesn’t discriminate. When he meets Anna though there is something about her that makes him want her and not want her at the same time. Throughout the whole book he pulls her closer to him but at the same time he pushes her as far from him as possible. Her heart gets broken more than once by him and it almost seems like he doesn’t care but he does a few things for her that shows he really does care.

I like the twins, Blake and Kobe. They are friends of Kaidan’s that also befriend Anna. But it looks like some of them want Anna for more than a friend. Kaidan is not happy about that at all. Yet he doesn’t want to be with her. So it is just confusing for poor Anna.

I can’t wait for the second book to see where it takes everyone. I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
