Fifty Shades of YA Boys kicks off today with Wendy Higgins! Wendy was recently able to sit down with Kaidan Rowe, the bad boy from her novel Sweet Evil, to have him answer some questions for us. Kai sounds positively yummy. He definitely has a bit of naughty in him. Want to know what we thought of this novel? Read Emmy’s review here. Thanks Wendy and Kai for being here today!

After earning a bachelors in Creative Writing from George Mason University and a masters in Curriculum and Instruction from Radford, Wendy taught high school English until becoming a mommy. Writing Young Adult (YA) stories gives her the opportunity to delve into the ambiguities of those pivotal, daunting, and exciting years before adulthood.

Hallo. Kai here. Originally from London, but I currently live in the US. I’m the drummer for the band Lascivious. What humans don’t know is that I’m the son of the demon of Lust, and I’m desperately trying to avoid a certain Nephilim girl with angel blood. She probably thinks I’m cruel, and maybe you do as well. But we’re both still alive to fight another day, and that’s what matters.
For me, the whole “staying alive” bit entails promoting lust. Want to know what that’s like, do you? I’ll give you a taste. Imagine being attracted to everyone who’s attracted to you. No exceptions. If someone’s aura bursts red when they lay eyes on me, I will find something sexy about them. I can assure you it does not take much: pouty lips, shapely calves, dainty wrists, full hips, rounded arse, blonde, brunette, redhead, curly, long, short, dark skin, light skin, big and small—damn…just talking about it makes me crazy. It’s not convenient, I’ll tell you that much, but it’s all I’ve known, and everything was fine until she came along.
Now all I want to do is lose myself, but I can’t. Once you’ve experienced a kiss with someone you truly fancy, everything else is shite. Shallow. Watered down. This is not a good thing for me. Because now I compare them all to her. They try too hard, laugh too loud. And most of all, they don’t love me.
It’s a fool thing to say, even a dangerous thing to think. Love and hope are not options for our kind. If only someone had told Anna that.
Fill in the blank:
NOBODY KNOWS I AM: …attracted to everyone. Seriously. I can find something sexy about anyone I encounter. It’s quite embarrassing.
I WISH I COULD STOP: …experiencing inconvenient feelings for a certain someone.
I’M A SUCKER FOR: …skin.
A GOOD TIME FOR ME IS: …yeah…skin…or anything with music involved. Or both. Yes, both.
NOBODY WOULD BELIEVE ME IF THEY SAW ME: …crying. Because I don’t cry. Ever.
I’D REALLY RATHER: …be kissing. An incredible snog is the biggest turn-on in existence.
THE FIRST THING I DO IN THE MORNING IS: …I probably shouldn’t answer this one…you’ll have to use your imagination.
1. Kim Kardashian FRAK – Why? Her arse, mainly.
2. Lady Gaga FRAK – Why? Sheer curiosity.
3. Angelina Jolie FRAK – Why? Must you ask? Those lips, of course.

About this Book:
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?
