(The Sweet Trilogy #2)
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?
Book 1: Sweet Evil review
.. even if only for the romance alone. The paranormal theme can take the back seat for all I care. 😉 Hot scenes, straight ahead! *fans self*
Let’s keep this short, shall we?
In order to keep up appearances for the Dukes and the shades, Ana became the ultimate party girl. She literally is the life of the party. Despite being busy of controlling her own addicting urges, Ana remained steadfast in her belief hat is she will be someone good. Despite being coerced and forced by circumstances to be attracted to another Neph, she remained faithful in her feelings towards Kaidan. All this while travelling around the world to search for other Nephilims that might be recruited to their cause.
This is such a breezy and enjoyable read. And it maintained the ‘morality’ theme that I actually liked in Sweet Evil. Wendy Higgins doesn’t preach, but I get the message clearly. People are not inherently evil, Ana says. and that goes for Nephilim like her, too.
Kaidan did not enter the scenes until halfway of the book. But it was worth the dallying. 😀 He actually is a normal guy, and a good one, at that. And I really liked that Higgins portrayed Ana as someone who will come out stronger if Kai (eventually) breaks her heart.
I’m expecting more action scenes in Sweet Reckoning, so please, let that be the case. *fingers crossed*
