Sweet Peril (The Sweet Trilogy #2)
by Wendy Higgins
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?
Anna is now known as the party girl at her school. She does this so she can lay low on the radar of the other Demons. It goes against everything she believes in and wants for her life. She is also missing Kaidan and all he wants is to stay away from her. She gets another message from above and knows she has to gather all the other Nephilim she can for what the battle that is coming. She has to be careful hunting the other Nephlim down so that the demons don't get track of what she is doing. Kopano is going with her to help her on her missions and Anna learns more about him than she knew. One person Anna has to talk to about this is Kaidan and while he is trying not to talk to her he is about to not only talk to her but to figure how just how much she means to him. The nephlims are trying to win their freedom with help from Anna but there is danger all around and they have to stay low till the right time or be killed.
Anna struggles in this book to keep everything in her life going smooth. She has to put up an act to fool everyone. You get to see the dark side of her and the good side in this book. I really like her as she fights for everything she believes in and is in danger many times but that doesn't stop her. She is in love with Kaidan but he keeps pushing her away and she has to fight to get him to realize what he could have. Kaidan here we have one of my favorite book crushes. I think if he was real I would so be a major stalker lol. He is the bad boy that you just know is good underneath even if he doesn't want anyone to know. I could gush for hours about him. Anna and Kaidan are so perfect for each other. However I will say a new boy stepped upped to be another book crush in this book. Kopano really got to me in this book. I loved seeing more about him and he really is a fantastic character that I think more people will fall in love with. There is many new characters that step out in this book that you get to meet. They are all so fascinating you can not help but want more of all of them.
This book is a wonderful sequel to Sweet Evil. It really starts to build things up for the final book and you can just tell it is going to be just as great as the first two. I am going to make this review short so I don't give any spoilers to the first book or this one or at least try not to. When I started reading this book I could tell from the first chapter I wouldn't put it down until I finished it. It kept me right in the story. Getting to meet the new characters, watching Anna and Kaidan struggle and both fighting what they really want was a joy and a pain to read. A joy because it is so amazing and a pain because you just want them together. This book has so much action in it. It does not ever have a dull moment in the whole book. There is quite a few new things learned in this book that I did not see coming and I will say a few heartaches. If you have read the first book you will love this one as well. If you haven't read the first one do so then grab this one as well! It is going to be a long wait to see how it all ends.
I love the cover goes perfect with the first and fits the books wonderfully. I would like to thank the publisher for giving me a copy for an honest review.
