Anna Whitt, the daughter of a guardian angel and a demon, promised herself she’d never do the work of her father—polluting souls. She’d been naive to make such a vow. She’d been naive about a lot of things. 

Haunted by demon whisperers, Anna does whatever she can to survive, even if it means embracing her dark side and earning an unwanted reputation as her school’s party girl. Her life has never looked more bleak. And all the while there’s Kaidan Rowe, son of the Duke of Lust, plaguing her heart and mind. 

When an unexpected lost message from the angels surfaces, Anna finds herself traveling the globe with Kopano, son of Wrath, in an attempt to gain support of fellow Nephilim and give them hope for the first time. It soon becomes clear that whatever freedoms Anna and the rest of the Neph are hoping to win will not be gained without a fight. Until then, Anna and Kaidan must put aside the issues between them, overcome the steamiest of temptations yet, and face the ultimate question: is loving someone worth risking their life?

The Way I See It

I had insanely high expectations for Sweet Peril and I was slightly let down. I definitely felt like this book fell victim to the dreaded sophomore slump everyone is always going on about. I read Sweet Evil in Oct of 2012 as a book blogger I read a lot and since then I’ve read close to 200 books! That’s a bit shocking right? Well, I remember this epic ending with angels and what not and I remember devouring the first book. Not the case with the second, it took me quite a few days to finish. I was confused about the characters and what was going on within the story line. It was slow building and then the action took off. There was supposed to be a love triangle but I was happy to see that Anna stayed true to her heart. I do however recall being a big supporter of Kopano the second love interest. Please keep in mind my memory is a little fuzzy on the deets of the first book so I spent a lot of time trying to figure out who is who and what lead everyone to this point. There were several things I felt need more explaining. Don’t get me wrong I’ve enjoyed this series and I’m looking forward to reading the final installment my biggest recommendation would be read these books very close together if not back to back. I absolutely loved all of the side characters they added character to the book! LOL I’m looking forward to all of the alliances being formed and I can’t wait to see what comes of it. Anna has been training hard and I can’t wait for that super Kick A$$ moment that I know is in her horizon. The writing was great Ms Higgins has a way of pulling your feelings into her words. The pain was palpable and I hurt when the characters hurt. Bravo! Do recommend this series? Yes. Was the book good? Yes. I really enjoyed the ending, there was a big reveal and the set up for the next book is in place. I just hope it doesn’t take me 16 months to read the next…I’m going to be stalker mode, the second the final installment comes out I’m reading it! By gosh, by golly! 

My Fav’s 

This guy is amazing! He is so respectful and kind and charming and yummy I want him to find happiness. Of everyone in this series I think he has worked the hardest and he deserves some sweet reward. 

Her heart is spoken for regardless of what the smart thing to do is she has given it away. She is forced to lead a life she hates but she tries to make up for it. Unfortunately she is being watched by dark beings and does not have a choice. She has so many temptations and she almost gives into them we see her struggle and feel for her pain. Anna is someone you will cheer for and want to succeed I’m very excited for her character. I can’t wait to see her in action. 

Oh I wouldn’t dare leave this guy off. YUM he is a Nephilim of lust and boy oh boy is it known! This guy knows what he is doing and his heart is spoken for. Let me tell you I had my doubts and for a majority of the book I was angry with him for hurting Anna. Towards the end we find out his reasoning and it is justified. He completely redeems himself at the end by the promises he makes. I know he is being sincere and I can’t wait to see what happens. 
My Rating 
3.0 Secret Alliances, Party Girl, Demon Whispers, Alcohol Addiction, California Dreaming, Graduation Surprise, Rescue Mission, Secret Island, Freezing Water, Body Heat, Summit Gathering, College Bound, Declaration of Love filled Stars! I’m ready for the action to really get going! Let’s do this y’all! Looking forward to the next!
