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?
Lets just say right off the bat that, I liked this book, I really did.
So this book is about a girl who is a daughter of an Angel and a Demon. Her mother dies at her birth and her father is arrested. She is then adopted and is raised by this lady who is her mother to her even though she knows she is adopted.
There are things about Anna’s life that had her always know that she is different and a bit strange. She can see/feel other peoples emotions. A “color ora” around them and for that reason she only has ONE real friend. He is able to keep his emotions in check and so she can bear being around him. She does not know why she is different or about her parents and who/what they are. Then she meets a boy…
Anna meets a dummer at a concert one night and she notices that he has this HUGE color burst coming from his chest. The color is Red. The color of Lust. Kaidan Rowe, is the son of the demon of Lust and therefore is subjected to serving his father and carrying out his devilish deeds and makes girls lust after him and then take them…as in sleep with them. Make them “fall.”
Now each human has a guardian angel and they try to “help” by protecting, comforting and so forth but they can’t intervene in free agency AKA free will AKA choice.
So when Kaidan meets Anna he finds her intriguing especially when he realizes she has no idea about anything, who she is, what she can do, what she is meant to do and so forth. Regardless he is suppose to take away her virginity, her virtue, her purity. And he means to except he can’t seem to bring himself to do it and there are many times they both want to and almost do but Anna is able to stop and then Kaidan is able to stop because they both know it’s wrong and Kaidan thinks too highly of Anna to make her fall and then leave her, like he is suppose to.
So the whole book is about them fighting the pull from each other and to keep their relationship purely friendship.
It does leave you with a cliff-hanger and it is a series… *insert eye roll*
Overall: It’s a heavily sexually frustrating, hormonal book.
