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?

First, lemme say that this was a "me" book. What's a "me" book?  It's what I reward myself with after doing a certain number of review books. Don't get me wrong, I love reading and reviewing books but sometimes I get hit with several books in a row that just aren't my flavor of cupcake. To keep myself motivated, I'll dangle a "me" book off the top of my book pile. (Kinda like carrot except I'm not a horse.)
My completely unprofessional *fangirly* review...

Somebody PLEASE explain to me WHY I waited so long to read this book?! *flails* OH.MA.WOOOOORD that was so good! *FLAILY FLAILS* It was nothing like I expected... NOTHING! Totally unexpected awesome.

This book is full of all kinds of good stuff, ALL.KINDS! Not to mention it's SMART, and truthful (like spiritual warfare, grace, forgiveness, living life with purpose, and not being afraid to do the right thing no matter how much it hurts - smartness).  Oh yeah, I WANT TO BRING KAIDAN HOME AND LOVE ON HIM UNTIL HE IS ALL BETTER! (The motherly kind of lovin', not his kind so getcha mind outta the gutter.)

Anna is amazing and she and Kaidan both BROKE my heart but in the best possible way. I can NOT wait for the next book!

READ IT. LOVE IT. YOU ARE WELCOME! (OK, so you probably should thank Wendy Higgins because she wrote it but STILL.)



  1. I loved this story! I am sooo excited about the sequel, sadly Wendy's website says it prob wont come out until dec 2013 :( TOOO LONG!

  2. Well, I guess that means we'll have plenty of time for a reread, right? :D

  3. Loved Sweet Evil and I am beyond excited about the sequel, sad it's so far away, but you are right, plenty of time to reread the first book! :)

BLOG TOUR + BAKING WITH ROTH & ZAYNE: Stone Cold Touch by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Welcome to Jenuine Cupcakes! This is my stop on the Stone Cold Touch tour and you're in for a treat because Roth and Zayne stopped by to make cupcakes for Layla. More on that in a minute. 

 ~ About the Book ~
Every touch has its price

Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life—no easy task for a seventeen-year-old who’s pretty sure things can’t get worse. Her impossibly gorgeous best friend, Zayne, is forever off-limits thanks to the mysterious powers of her soul-stealing kiss. The Warden clan that has always protected her is suddenly keeping dangerous secrets. And she can barely think about Roth, the wickedly hot demon prince who understood her in ways no one else could.
But sometimes rock bottom is only the beginning. Because suddenly Layla’s powers begin to evolve, and she’s offered a tantalizing taste of what has always been forbidden.  Then, when she least expects it, Roth returns, bringing news that could change her world forever. She’s finally getting what …

BLOG TOUR: Frazzled by Booki Vivat (GUEST POST + GIVEAWAY)

Meet Abbie Wu! She’s about to start middle school and she’s totally in crisis.

Abbie Wu is in crisis—and not just because she’s stuck in a family that doesn’t quite get her or because the lunch ladies at school are totally corrupt or because everyone seems to have a “Thing” except her. Abbie Wu is in crisis always.

Heavily illustrated and embarrassingly honest, Frazzled dives right into the mind of this hilariously neurotic middle school girl as she tries to figure out who she is, where she belongs, and how to survive the everyday disasters of growing up. With Abbie’s flair for the dramatic and natural tendency to freak out, middle school has never seemed so nerve-racking!

Packed with hilarious black-and-white illustrations and doodles throughout, Frazzled takes readers through Abbie Wu’s hysterical middle school adventures.

Thanks for stopping by, there be cupcakes here today! *whispers* Really creepy cupcakes.
If you have followed this blog or my Instagram or Pinterest board for any length of time, you've probably seen some of the bookish cupcake creations I've made over the past few years. Book inspired cupcakes, characters as cupcake flavors, release party cupcakes, that sort of thing.Making cupcakes for people makes me happy. 
However, of all the different kinds of cupcakes I have been asked to make, today's definitely take the cake--or the cupcakes--or the finger.  Wait. What?  Stay with me, I'll explain. 
But first...
