I must admit, I wasn't expecting a book on angels and demons to be like this. I'm shocked.

When I first started reading Sweet Evil, I was prepared to be disappointed, in fact, I'm always prepared. I hate getting my hopes up and then find it was all for nothing. To be frank, I wanted to put this down since the first 20 pages were annoying and it didn't make sense; then it started to get better on page 60 and I was smiling like an idiot. I also really hate reading about fallen angels, angels, demons, etc., because the authors tend to get stuff wrong when talking about Christianity. Yes, I'm a Christian. Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick, for example, was just awful. The stories were twisted; also A Touch Mortal by Leah Clifford, that book was a joke. Angels swearing and whatnot -- aren't they supposed to be angelic/holy beings? Anyway, but Sweet Evil was totally different and interesting. So why am I giving this 3.5 stars? Because I was expecting something more and it took be 8 days to finish. I liked this book, don't get me wrong, I just don't think it deserves 5 stars -- from me.

Awesome stuff I loved in Sweet Evil:
Anna, our female heroine, has the ability to sense other people's emotions: whether they feel lustful, prideful, angry, depressed, in love, happy, anxious, etc., etc. How awesome is that? Also, I thought she was going to be a Bella-type character but she wasn't. I liked her -- though she did some things that was no bueno -- not good. I'm going to talk about that later on, though.

The Romance Mrs Higgins could write some seriously hot kissing scenes. Kaidan, Kaidan, Kaidan -- that bad boy we all love; to top it off, he's a drummer. I'm not going to write a lot about this, you'll just have to read it for yourself. ;)

Anna and Jay's friendship: I seriously loved their friendship and I am definitely glad Higgins didn't make them end up together or wrote a clichéd story line about best friends falling in love or they are in love but are afraid to say something because they don't want their friendship ruined. Yawn. Thank you, Higgins, for steering clear on that. Jay and Anna have this same problem with being attracted to alcohol, Anna senses his emotions and immediately wants to befriend him so they could both keep each other sane. I love how Jay fights for her, too (view spoiler).

The Dukes: whoa! I loved how Higgins wrote this! We all know the story of Lucifer/Satan's fall, right? Well, after he and his followers were cast down, these fallen angels are roaming the earth. There are 200 hundred demons (I think called Legionnaires) and 12 Dukes of the 7 deadly sins and some from the Ten Commandments: The Dukes of Wrath, Adultery, Substance abuse, Lies, Gluttony, Greed, Envy, Lust, Pride, Theft, Hatred, and Murder. These Dukes have children so they can continue to to their bidding to make the world a better place for them. If you fail to do your work, you will be punished or sentenced to death.

Anna is the daughter of the Duke of Substance abuse, hence the reason why she's so attracted to drugs and alcohol. She doesn't know this yet because her father has been in jail since she was born. But after meeting the mysteriously handsome Kaidan, she unravels what she really is and what must be done.
