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 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?
So, if you’ve been following my blog for a minute, you’ll know how much I love Jennifer Armentrout’s Lux series, SO after I finished with that series, I was suffering a harder book depression (and with good reason) So, I had the lucky chance of running across this trilogy when I was looking for close comparison to the Lux!
THAT WAS THE GLORIOUS DAY SWEET EVIL WALTZED, SKIPPED, AND TWERKED INTO MY LIFE. And I am so happy for it. Even though I read it about a year and a half ago I was STILL STOKED to get back into this series!
Demons. Demons. And MORE demons. They’re all about causing mayhem and being bad inflences on humanity! For example, if you’re inclined to drink, most likely it’s because of demon influence. If you feel like partying and getting high, most likely it’s because of a demon.
Reading this book really changed my perception of how I saw thing like drinking and sex, pride, and money…Not that I know anything about any of that becaue I’m socially awkwad, never smoked or drank in my life, and I don’t have money so….yeah.
Anna’s or ‘little Annie” as sexy Kaiden likes to call her life is thrown upside down when she finds out that she actually is something more than a human being. She’s always had these strange powers she never could understand and then when she meets Kaiden it’s all like:
Her life changes. Like… she handled it WAYYY better thatn what I woud have. That’s all I’m saying.
†Anna: Eh…so, it’s like I WANTED and DESPERATELY wanted to fall in love with this chick, but you know what? I shall tell you what. I’m not a fan of weak heroines. If it’s a series, and I’m basically stuck with you as an MC, girl, I’m going to need for you to get it together, grow some woman balls and BE STRONG. I think the main reason Anna and I didn’t have the beautiful opportunity to mesh was because she was weak over a dude (but it was freaking Kaiden “Kai” Rowe, so really how could I blame her) but I’m an advocate for strong, independent women. She just wasn’t it..
†Kaiden: HELLO. THERE. MR. ROWE. I have to tell you it was such an honor to meet you even though some of the things you did to Anna made me want to punt kick you in the forehead. But, all is good in the hood because YOU Kai….YOU ARE A SEXY.
†Kope: *Waves and blows kisses at this sexy man* I would have liked to have seen those brown eyes of his. Felt that choclate skin all smooth under my fingertips. Mmm.. If Kaiden wasn’t in the picutre, I could def see him and Anna getting together. *Wink, wink*
†Blake: It was like… no matter HOW MUCH I forced my brain cells to figure how this guy looked, I couldn’t… I really couldn’t. Supposedly he’s like part Asian, I think?? Which when I heard this I was definielty onboard the sexy Blake ship.
†The twins: They’re basically… (I’m searching for a nice way to say this….) Well, they entice men to have intercourse with them you see? It doesn’t matter whether the man is single or married–> And I’m sure if they are married, it’s even better to them.)
Words can not explain how much I FREAKING HEARTED THIS BOOK SO MUCH! If you guys have’nt had the glorious opportunity to read it, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FORRRR? READ IT.
Over To You:
This question goes out to those of you that have read it, are you doing the swooning over Kai like I am? Who was your fav character? Oh! And did Anna seem kind of needy and desperate to you guys? To me, I just though tshe needed some more UMPH, some more BACKBONE. But that’s just my opinion.
Now to those of you that haven’t read it yet: ARE YOU GOING TO READ IT OR WHAT??
