Sweet Evil Blog Tour and Giveaway

Welcome! And this is my stop on the Sweet Evil blog tour hosted by Fall Into Books!


And for those of you who didn't catch my review, here it is:

The 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.
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?

My Thoughts:
Sweet Evil was not bad at all. It was grand. I loved it. The beginning at first was a bit slow for me and I thought it highly impossible for our main character, Anna, to be such a Goodie-Goodie. But, I thought I should not judge her because I have been called a Goodie-Goodie throughout high school and much worse. I decided to like our dear and fragile Anna.

Not to take words from my previous review, but this book was not what I expected it to be. Surprisingly, a lot happened in Sweet Evil. A trip across the country all the way to California, another to New York. It all happened so fast. Despite how fast paced it was, I liked it that way. It kept me at the edge of my seat, craving to know what would happen next. And at times, I was just as scared and nervous as Anna. My heart would beat fast and my mind would spin with all the possibilities of what could happen next.

And at other times, the pace would slow down. But it was a good slow-down. I treasured every moment Kaidan and Anna had, along with other moments between others. It was sweet. It wasn't the sappy and mushy kind of sweet, though. It was intense and albeit, brief at times.

And then there was the evil. Demons threaten the normalcy of humans, making them do sinful things. Anna is torn between helping them all, sheltering them all from the evil that lurked around, and joining in with all the wrongdoings going on. It was a constant struggle that had my heart torn. Who wouldn't want to give in here and there? How could others let all of these bad things happen to all those humans? What could be done about it?

Switching the subject, I'll talk about Kaidan a bit. Whoo. He had my heart racing along with Anna's. He was not sweet. He was not innocent. He was deadly. He was scary. But, there was something there that Anna saw in him. It was other than his natural pull he gave off because of his Nephilim sexiness. He was a true mystery that made me question everything he did and why.

I'll make this quick! Five stars! No doubt about it. Miss Higgins, I will be looking out for other books by you! L-O-V-E-D Sweet Evil. It was the right amount of wrong. <------See what I did there?  Sweet Evil . . .right amount of wrong . . .

And here's my interview with Wendy right here:

What inspired you to write Sweet Evil?
Life. :) Truly, everything in my life lent itself - people I’ve known, things I’ve experienced, books I’ve read, heartbreaks I’ve suffered, friendships I’ve embraced...just everything.

Hmm.  That's a really great answer because I feel that in any great story, there's a ringing sense of experience within it.

Did you always want to be an author?
It was always my “dream job” - as in, the job I never thought I’d actually get to do.

It's mine, too!

What does it feel like to be published?
It feels amazing, and surreal, and I’m humbled by it every single day.

Aww!  That's so sweet. :)

I know this, but I'm not sure if others do, but can you explain what is going on with Sweet Hope?
Sweet Hope is my sequel, and it’s under consideration with the publisher. I am hoping to have news this fall.

Le sighh.  I hope so, too!  I wanna know what happens next with Anna and Kaidan!

What has been your favorite part of being an author?
Interacting with readers/fans and other writers. When people get excited about my story, I get all giddy and want to squee with them, lol. I’m a fangirl of these characters, too, so it’s beyond exciting that other people “get” what I’m feeling.

Happy to be a part of your fan club. *bows*

So what do you think of Daemon Black from the Lux Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout? Do you think Kai and Daemon would get along well?
I’m sooo crazy for Daemon. I think Daemon and Kai would be trouble together - they’d probably drive Katy and Anna crazy with their naughty, teasing banter.  I could see them feeding off each other’s energy...rawr.

Mmmm.  I can only imagine . . .

Chocolate or vanilla?
Chocolate.

Tom or Jerry?
I go back and forth about which one I feel bad for. I think I’m Team Tom. Or maybe Team Jerry. *sigh* Oh, I hate being torn.

I feel your pain.
