Review: Sweet Peril by Wendy Higgins (8.5/10)


After reading Sweet Evil, by Wendy Higgins, you thought it couldn't get any better, right? Wrong! Sweet Peril, if you can believe it, is deeper, more emotional, and even hotter than the previous installment. Haunted by demon whisperers who are a little suspicious of half guardian angel, half fallen angel Anna, our awesome main character has to work for her dad, something she never thought she'd do. In Sweet Evil, Kaidan Rowe, son of the Duke of Lust, is there with her to help Anna in these dark times of substance abuse, but Kaidan has separated himself from Anna for both of their safeties at the beginning of the book, and it is super painful for not only Anna, but the READERS!! We want our Kaidan! Wendy Higgins does an incredible job at allowing us to feel all the emotions that plague Anna's mind, such as the conflict over embracing her dark side and the obvious torture of being away from Kaidan. So much so do we step into the shoes of Anna that when her father sends her and some old friends on missions to recruit other Nephilim, it feels as if we are the ones travelling around the world with the balance of humanity on our own shoulders. Further, when Anna and Kaidan FINALLY reunite, I swear it is the sweetest, cutest, sexiest thing I have ever read all wrapped into a lustful bundle of Kaidan-ness. Wendy's style of writing is like velvet, and she plays with our minds in the most wonderful ways. She hints at things between Kaidan and Anna but doesn't fully divulge, and then she will completely divulge but hide other things, and it's incredible. I cannot stress this enough--go buy this book!


Embrace Your Destiny
Anna Whitt, daughter of a guardian angel and a fallen one, promised herself she'd never do the work of her father—polluting souls. She'd been naive to make such a claim. 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. 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 the Duke 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 your life?
