5 stars to Sweet Peril (The Sweet Trilogy #2) by Wendy Higgins

Published September 13, 2013 by katheryn13

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?

 

Review:

I thoroughly enjoyed Sweet Evil, and Sweet Peril was no different in that respect. Although there was far less sexual tension in the beginning, I loved the interactions between each of the Neph and the relationship between Anna and her father grows much more.

Anna has a visit from a spirit, telling her she might be the “one”. I want to make a joke about being the “chosen one” but that’s not going to happen. Nope. *sniggers*

Her father goes on a mission to find allies, so they can build a Neph army, which is scary to Anna but she goes through so much in this, having to battle her feelings for Kaidan and both Kope, who she cares for but it’s clear where her heart lies.  Travelling all over the world to escape the whisperers and the Dukes, not to mention keeping up her party girl image at school is taking its toll on her.

There’s a lot less Jay and Veronica in this, which is a shame, but so much more of the twins (Ginger and Marna) and Blake.  They meet new and some old Nephilim’s. Kope and Anna are sent to far off countries to persuade other Nephs to join them, and a girl named Zenia adds some punch to the mix.

I can’t fault anything writing wise, and the tension was hyped up, especially with Kope’s feelings put out there. I’m not a huge fan of him, but then it doesn’t matter. He’ll never win. *evil laugh*

The sexy moments between Anna and Kaidan are just as heated, and even more so because they’ve been apart for so long. It’s so sweet and romantic how far they’ve come and how much Kaidan has changed. He’s finally opening up and it just made me “Awwww!”.

The drama amps up when the Dukes turn up unexpectedly and the Neph’s hide, witnessing something awful which changes everything. Someone is onto them and now the battle has really begun. I wonder what’s in store for them next. Hopefully a full out war, because I sense that’s coming.

As I said, I really enjoyed this, and I’m pretty sure you will too if you loved Sweet Evil. If you haven’t read this yet, go do it, because you won’t be disappointed.
