Embrace Your fate

It's time.

Evil is running rampant, and sweet Anna Whitt is its target. Nobody knows when or how the Dukes will strike, but Anna and her Nephilim allies will do anything necessary to rid the earth of the demons and their oppressive ways.

The stakes are higher than ever, and Anna is determined that the love she feels will be her strength, not a liability. But trying to protect the ones she loves while running for her life and battling demonic forces proves to be perilous--especially as faces are changing and trust is fleeting. When the Duke of Lust sends Anna's great love, Kaidan Rowe, to work against her, Anna must decide how much she's prepared to risk.

In the most sensual and fast-paced installment yet, Sweet Reckoning brings all the beloved Neph together one last time to fight for their freedom.

Sonellion grabbed his crotch. �??????�?????�????�???�??�?�¢??Grow some balls again.�??????�?????�????�???�??�?�¢?? She gave him a venomous look. �??????�?????�????�???�??�?�¢??I have more clarity about the world in this body than I ever had with a set of balls.�??????�?????�????�???�??�?�¢?? I have no idea if it�??????�?????�????�???�??�?�¢??s because I�??????�?????�????�???�??�?�¢??ve matured as a reader or just more critical when it comes to books, but this series has become one of least favourite ever! The book wasn�??????�?????�????�???�??�?�¢??t bad but it wasn�??????�?????�????�???�??�?�¢??t that good either. I give this book 3/5 stars. I think my problem is these books are just so cheesy, as in so cheesy it makes me cringe. Other than the cheesy moments, I really do like the world of this series, the demon/angel aspect was done very well and I think it�??????�?????�????�???�??�?�¢??s the only reason I managed to carry on with this series! Onto the plot for this book, I felt nothing much happened until the second half of the book. The first was slow and full of cheesiness that I didn�??????�?????�????�???�??�?�¢??t care for. However the second half was much better as there was a lot of action and the pace was faster. The ending was a good ending to the series and the epilogue was sweet. As for the characters, I liked them all. I just never felt emotionally attached to any of them and I�??????�?????�????�???�??�?�¢??m sure if any of them had died, I wouldn�??????�?????�????�???�??�?�¢??t have been all that sad! As I�??????�?????�????�???�??�?�¢??ve mentioned before, the relationships were cheesy and that ruined the book a little for me. I know for sure if there was less cheese and more realism then the book would�??????�?????�????�???�??�?�¢??ve gotten a higher rating from me! Overall, this series is okay, definitely not the best I�??????�?????�????�???�??�?�¢??ve read (I don�??????�?????�????�???�??�?�¢??t think I�??????�?????�????�???�??�?�¢??ll ever re-read this series) but it�??????�?????�????�???�??�?�¢??s not the worst either.show more

My bittersweet heart feels nothing but euphoric joy. Sweet Reckoningâ??which should be renamed to Sweet Feelsâ?¦okay so maybe that sounds like an uber cheesy erotic novel but yeah, feelsâ??has given me everything from intense sadness too immense happiness. I donâ??t think my heavy heart can take all of the emotion. As the saying goes, everything comes at a price and it really does fit in with this series. Throughout the books weâ??ve seen our main protagonist overcome many problems but it doesnâ??t always end well. In this epic finale Anna has to decide whom sheâ??s fighting for and what sheâ??s willing to give up in the process. Iâ??ve really enjoyed watching Anna blossom from the weak, timid little girl we first met into a hardcore all singing, all dancing badass! Because this is the finale book in the trilogy I donâ??t want to give too much away by rattling on. However, can we just take a moment to discuss the ever so sexy and endearing Kaiden Rowe? Like Anna, he has taken on many challenges throughout the trilogy. Weâ??ve seen him question his purpose and deny himself of what is natural to him in order to save the people he loves. As far as character development goes I think Wendy nailed this one perfectly. Truth be told, I never thought weâ??d see the day that Kaiden and Anna have the chance to be happy together but it seems that Ms Higgins ships them just as much as we do. Enough so sheâ??d give us what we all want and damn, Iâ??m not one to read and tell butâ?¦ it was mighty fine! How can something be so sensual yet so sweet at the same time? In this action packed, mind blowing conclusion we see Anna do everything she can to not only save the Nephilim but also mankind from the terrible demons that prowl the earth and revel in all things evil. The book isnâ??t always serious though, we get some heartwarming and humorous scenes thatâ??ll either have you giggling like a schoolgirl or shedding a tear or two. Sweet Reckoning sees the return of many favourite characters as they join together in order to help Anna rid the world of all things horrendous. This trilogy is so much more than your average paranormal/fantasy novel and I think that the finale was definitely worth the wait as it was everything I couldâ??ve hoped for.show more

(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.) The final battle is coming, and Anna and Kaidan must be prepared. Can they really stand up to the dukes and win? And who will lose their lives in the process? This was by far my favourite book of this series, and even though the ending was a bit cheesy, I really enjoyed it. Anna and Kaidan were great in this. I liked how strong they were, how they managed to fool people when they needed to, and how much they loved each other. Even though they did some stupid things too, I couldn�?????????�????????�???????�??????�?????�????�???�??�?�¢??t help but love them. The storyline in this was good. I have to say that I�?????????�????????�???????�??????�?????�????�???�??�?�¢??m a bit of an adrenalin junky when it comes to books, and this one had tonnes of action, danger, and tension right from the beginning, making me instantly hooked! I really liked the little twists in the story, and I really didn�?????????�????????�???????�??????�?????�????�???�??�?�¢??t want to put this down to go to sleep! The romance in this was so good! We got some hot and steamy scenes, without there being anything explicit, and I loved how the author managed to give us what we wanted, whilst still keeping to her original limitations. The romance did get a bit cheesy in places, but I still enjoyed it. The ending to this was good, and I liked how things worked out. I did think the epilogue was maybe a little too cheesy, but I managed to look past that. Overall; great end to the series, 8.5 out of 10.show more
