Synopsis: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.
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?
My Review:I have a lot of mixed feelings about this book. It just looked so
interesting that I had to pick it up but I'll be honest and say that I
almost didn't finish this. And I always finish books.
see no matter how much I tried I just couldn't like Anna. I literally
hated this character. She was such a goody goody that it got on my
nerves. And she said/thought the strangest things.
"Kai, like Thai, only yummier. Gah! Who was this girl invading my brain?"
I could not stop laughing. Who thinks those kind of things?
Oh and then there was her comment about her beauty mark. "Why
did people call it that? A freckle was not beautiful. It was a small,
dark attention grabber. I hated the way everyone's eyes went to it when
they talked to me."
Well you know what Anna I have five
beauty marks on my face and a few freckles from the sun. Never once did I
think this and I've never noticed people starting at them. Oh and guess
what I have one right by my lips like you do and I don't complain about
it and I don't try to cover it up either. I was offended by this. I
almost threw the book across the room after reading that. Maybe I was
overreacting but it still offended me.
Anna would also just break
down crying over nothing. Half the time I had no idea what she was
crying over. She was like a three year old! Oh she told one lie and
right after it she told the people she was lying. You don't do that.
I also can't really figure out her obsession with hott
Kaidan or why he likes her. During the book
they make out a few times and then Kaidan goes to "work". That was just weird.
Kaidan has no doubt been with too many girls to count and yet Anna is
ok with this. She's somewhat ok with him going to "work" too.
Then Patti her overprotective stepmother lets her go on a road trip with the son of the Duke of Lust. What? What happened to this overprotective parent? Then Patti has to say one of the strangest things I've ever read.
"Hands off, mister."
I couldn't take Patti seriously after that.
the road trip Anna would constantly be thinking about how Kaidan and
her couldn't be together even thought she loved him. She was depressed
and I didn't want to read about that. That isn't interesting to me. Oh
and even after Kaidan is a complete jerk to Anna she still says she
loves him and wants to be with him.
The only good part about this
book was the New Year's party she went to. That was awesome. Is it
wrong to like a character better when they're drunk? Drunk Anna and
working Anna was so much better than
