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?
What I Liked
Honestly? I didn’t have high hopes for this book. The cover, for one, didn’t exactly instate high hopes for this book, but holy hot sauce I have never been more glad to be wrong. I loved everything from the Kaidan the sexy drummer (musician ✔ confident ✔ insanely attractive ✔) to the cross-state road trip (with said hottie) to the idea that some people are just meant to be bad in order for the world to stay balanced. I was expecting to have to force myself to the final pages, but the last chapter came upon me so fast that I looked up and it was suddenly 5am and school started in 3 hours so oops no time for sleep. This was the very definition of a one sit read.
Complex characters – yes
Complicated plot – yes
Compelling – hell yes
This book had it all.
What I Didn’t Like
Why? Why must authors always give us guys with issues? Why can’t we – just once – have a sweet, funny, generous guy who ticks all the boxes.
Because we’re obviously sadistic and enjoy putting ourselves through the pain of watching a douche-canoe walk all over the protagonist only to turn around and suddenly proclaim his love. DON’T BE A DICK, it is literally that simple. And how can the protagonist look past all that pain, and decide that she loves him too. Yuck.
Oh who am I kidding? I totally loved all that angst. I just couldn’t find anything to dislike about this book.
