Sweet Desire, Wicked Fate ~ Readers' Favorite 2015 Gold Medal Winner Discovering long lost relatives can be a real nightmare. Do you know who or what you're related to? Jaden Lisette never imagined she might not live to see her sixteenth birthday, or that befriending reclusive triplets and a mentally challenged man could be her only chance of survival. Days after coming to Louisiana, Jaden falls for eighteen-year-old Briz Nolan. Then she falls into a living nightmare when she discovers a side of her family that she never knew existed. Once she uncovers her family's deadly secret, Jaden is forced into a world she could only imagine in horror movies. There's nowhere to run. YA Romance fantasy-thriller filled with danger, humor, and the intoxicating passion of first love.

I liked exploring the family secrets, the characters, the creepy creatures called Mal Rous and adored the cuteness of first love.

    That one surprised me, even though usually I'm not a major fan of science-fiction stories.It takes a bit to warm up with the characters and newly introduced creatures called Mal Rous. But after that, I've been mesmerized by the many things presented to explore. And explore I did, loving every second of it. I have quite a thing for family secrets, and this one is a pretty dangerous one, at the same time very gripping, too.The characters grew on me more and more, page after page, layer revealed after layer. I had a lot of fun discovering how they were related to one another. I liked as well that they have or gain flaws that make it difficult to determine whether they are good or evil. I'm curious how the changes in them caused by the happenings in this first installment of the series will affect their future behaviour towards one another and in general.The little lovestory between Jaden and Briz: cuuute. I loved the first love feelings, the insecurities, the jealousy, the funny moments when Jaden's Mal Rous-altered senses make her all lusty and jump 'poor' Briz at the most unfortunate times, even the drama caused by Ava's cruel meddling. It somehow lightens the tense and oftentimes horror-filled atmosphere quite nicely.All in all, I really liked this story. The topic of experiments with DNA and cloning is a contemporary one. The characters are complex and noticeably develop along with what's happening to them. The lovestory is very cute and a nice contrast to all the nightmarish things thrown at the characters. I'm curious what will happen next because the open ending leaves me with a feeling of foreboding doom.
