Product description

Fans of Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments series will be drawn to Wendy Higgins's sexy, thrilling Sweet Evil series. Sweet Peril focuses on the battle between light and dark, good and evil, within Anna Whitt, the child of a guardian angel mother and a demon father. Anna promised herself she'd never do the work of her father-polluting souls. She'd been naive to make such a claim. Haunted by demon whisperers, Anna does whatever she can to survive, even if it means earning an unwanted reputation as her school's party girl. And all the while there's gorgeous bad-boy Kaidan Rowe, the son of the Duke of Lust, plaguing her heart and mind. Anna discovers it is her fate to banish demons from the earth, and save the other Nephilim from their dark destiny. 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?

Favourite Quote:

�?�¢??Ready to s-snuggle?" he asked Kaidan, a slight clatter in his voice. Only Blake could joke on a night like this and get away with it.
Kaidan shook his head and undressed down to his boxers, too, the tension finally shedding away from his frame. "I swear, mate. If I feel something poke me in the back. . ."

I really enjoyed the first novel in this series and I was s excited for this one! But I was let down with this installment and give this book a 3/5 stars!

My main problem about this book was the plot, hardly anything new was learned until the end and there was no action at all! All that happened was them travelling over the globe to find peoplec(and when they did, nothing exciting happened!), and that was it. Most of the plot felt to focused on the �?�¢??love triangle�?�¢?? which I hated because I cannot stand them!
That being said the ending set up for what I hope in an action-packed final book in this series!

The main character Anna wasn�?�¢??t as na�??�?�¯ve as she was in the first book which I liked a lot but her constant agony over Kaiden was annoying but she wasn�?�¢??t too bad! As for Kaiden still love him a lot! My favourite characters are probably the twins and Blake, and they were hardly in the book! There was a new character introduced and I actually liked her a lot and hope she�?�¢??s in the next book!

One thing I can say I really enjoyed about the book was all the different sins and how they were portayed. Wendy Higgins does not shy away from any of these and I loved how dark and twisted they made the story! And watching all the characters struggling with temptation was awesome! Probably my favourite thing about this series!

Overall this book was okay, I did like the first much better but I still cannot wait to read the next one!

Embrace Your DestinyAnna 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?
