Review: Sweet Peril - By Wendy Higgins

Author: Wendy Higgins
Release Date: 4/30/2013
Purchase Info: Amazon - B&N
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?


I waited wayyyyyy too long to get my Kaidan fix!
 Jumping into book #2 I felt instantly swallowed up by this story, but in a good way. You know how sometimes the second book in a trilogy can seem like it's just a "filler" book? Sweet Peril blew away any preconceived notions that I might have had about mid-book syndrome. 

From the get go Anna is being watched and judged at every turn by whisperers, basically ghost like tattle tales for the Dukes, and she's having to put on her best party girl face to show she's doing her fair share of work. Regardless of what she does her mind always comes back to Kai, she needs closure or acceptance from him and it seems like the story won't go anywhere until that happens. SURPRISE!! The story does move forward, how I'm not telling you, but I really admire how the author was able to give Anna the amazing path to walk down in order to find answers from Kai. Through out the entire book I was on the edge of my seat; quick get aways, missions, and near run ins with the Dukes, I could feel my adrenaline running high the whole time!

I absolutely LOVE some of the new characters that were introduced into this book! You meet a few of the Duke's children, and I especially liked Flynn, he's a spitfire. Then there's Z, she's someone that I want to make chicken noodle soup for and take care of forever, something about her makes my heart melt.

Overall this book was great, it's leading up at an EPIC ending, I can feel it in my bones, and when it comes I can't wait to tear into!
