Battle of the Heroes: Kaidan Rowe vs. Daemon Black

BATTLE OF THE HEROES:

Kaidan Rowe  v.   Daemon Black

Sweet Evil (The Sweet Trilogy, #1)This might be the most epic of all battle of the heroes. I'm pitting two paranormal guys against on another to see which one has the better sex appeal and will ultimately be more compatible...with me. Yes! These battles are so insanely biased that they are almost laughable. But guess what? You have a chance to take the same quiz and vote for your favorite hero at the end. So it's Kaidan Rowe from Wendy Higgins' Sweet Evil trilogy vs. Daemon Black from Jennifer L. Armentrout's Lux series. As a disclaimer: I've read the first two books in the Sweet trilogy but only the first book (Obsidian) in the Lux series. Now...let's begin with some background info of the guys.  

Kaidan Rowe

He's a Nephilim, half angel and half demon, and also the son of the duke of Lust. Yes, you read that correctly. L. U. S. T. Prepare for some sexy times people because Kai will literally have your heart racing and your panties a meltin'. He's a bit of a jerk at first, and also a drummer of a band. Sexy! But he soon warms up to sweet Anna and shows that he's more than just the guy who sleeps with his groupies. 

Daemon Black

Obsidian (Lux, #1)Daemon is an alien. Yep, an alien. But not the green guys you see in cartoons. Nope, he's more along the lines of the WB's hot Roswell type aliens. And oh, he is one giant jerk. The kind of bad boy that makes you want to slap him one minute and then jump his bones the next. Like Kai, there's so much underneath his rough exterior.

Major plus points for having the female love interest (Katy) be a book blogger. She gets marked by Daemon after he saves her, and now evil guys are after her so Daemon has to protect her. Oh man, oh man, there are so many swoony scenes in this book. JLA knows how to write sexy, snarky, and just plain awesome! And most of the epic moments come from Daemon black. His powers: Element manipulation (if I remember correctly), super speed, and panty dropping. 
These scores reflect my biased opinion on who's more compatible with...me. Your own scores will obviously vary.

Compatibility
How compatible are our heroes with me? Would we make a good couple? And yes, I'm totally disregarding the fact they have found their soulmates in both books. This is a battle of f*ing heroes "book boyfriend" style. 

Kaidan Rowe: He's a drummer. I am musically challenged. But he likes sweet, innocent girls...I write sexy non-innocent romance novels...gah! Why aren't we  more compatible Kaidan?! -- 2/5

Daemon Black: He's obviously attracted to...book bloggers. We are getting closer with this one. And he's into the whole love-hate relationship. Those aren't too hard to start. They're basically kindergarten steps. -- 4/5

Chance of a Break Up 
Would our relationship last? Or is it a sinking ship?

Kaidan: His job is to hook up with other girls. It even puts a strain on his relationship with Anna. If he doesn't seduce other women then he may be killed. Outlook, doesn't look good -- 2/5

Daemon: Even though he confessed he hated Katy, he still spent a lot of energy protecting her. He seems like a very loyal guy, even if he comes across as arrogant -- 4/5

Appearance Appeal
Looks aren't everything...but they do matter some. 

Kaidan: Sexy sexy sexy. If he looks anything like he does on the cover then there is some hottness abound. -- 5/5

Daemon: Like Kaidan, he just oozes sex appeal. He's hot. 'Nuff said. -- 5/5

Swoon-Worthy
Swooning is an important factor. If you can swoon then he can't be a book boyfriend, right?

Kaidan: He's a drummer! Of course you should be swooning. And if not, he will use his lust mojo on you and MAKE you swoon. -- 5/5

Daemon: He's super damn sexy, but he is a little bit more of a jerk than Kaidan. For that he must be docked a swoony point. -- 4/5

WINNER!
Daemon Black: 17
Kaidan Rowe: 14

I love these guys both equally, but I guess I'd be better suited for Daemon Black ;)

I chose which hero would be my book boyfriend. Now it's time for you to decide for yourself.

ABOUT THE BOOKS:


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?

Starting over sucks. When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I'd pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring.... until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up. And then he opened his mouth.

Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something...unexpected happens.  The hot alien living next door marks me.

You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon's touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I'm getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades. 

If I don't kill him first, that is.
