Anna Whitt, 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 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. 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?

A Great Second

I devoured this book in one sitting. Wendy Higgins does not fall victim to the curse of the second book. Sweet Peril may be more engaging and fantastic than Sweet Evil.

What I loved: The characters. All of them, even the bad guys. Anna is able to see all sides of people and recognize the good even when it is hard to see. Working isn't easy for her but she manages to do her job and still have a heart. Kaidan and Kope are back and quite possibly better than ever. Readers will enjoy this side of Kope they see in this book. Kaidan is the best "bad guy" out there. He's definitely swoon-worthy and the depth of his character packs a powerful Kai punch.

What left me wanting more: The end....I got to the end and wanted more!

Final thoughts: Fans of Sweet Evil won't be disappointed. I wasn't and I can't wait for book 3!

Awesome Sequel!

THANK YOU Wendy Higgins for writing an amazing, unputdownable sequel!

What I LUV'D: Let's start with the cover...Can I have Anna's dress, please? (Can I also have her figure to go with the dress because that would be great, thanks.)

Action, adventure, brownies, cuddling, kissing and wrestling - this sequel has a little something for everyone! We're introduced to new characters and get to hang with familiar faces (two of which look exactly alike - go figure). Kopano gets LOTS of page time, and of course, there's Kaidan Rowe, everyone's favorite drummer boy guy.

(BTW, I vote that Wendy Higgins writes a Kaidan novella that features a roadie named Jen. Her job could be to bake cupcakes for the band and carry Kaidan's drumsticks because I totally rock at carrying stuff! Just sayin')

Anna has become one of my favorite female characters - she's strong willed, compassionate and her ability to see the best in people is something we should all aspire to whether you're a fictional character or not. She's faced with a task so big, there's no way she can accomplish it all on her own and she is surrounded by those who doubt she can succeed at all, but Anna has something they don't...she has hope that all things are possible. *high fives her*

Anna also has two very swoonilicious guys in her life, and how lucky is she?! They're both tall, dark and delicious and they both rock abs accents. While it's no secret which of the two beat out the rhythm of her heart song, she does come to the realization that she has genuine feelings for both and things get a little, um, interesting. I like that Anna is mature enough to understand that she has an important purpose to fulfill and the world does not revolve around her love life.

Let me just say, that I'm a die-hard Kaidanite, but Kopano made me feel all the feels in Sweet Peril. So much so, I decided to adapt a song for him...

*clears throat*

"I threw a wish in the well

Don't ask me, I'll never tell

I looked to you, as it fell

And now I smell car-a-mel


I'd trade my Neph for a wish

Auras and plagues for a kiss

I wasn't looking for this

But now we're wre-stl-ing.


You're prayer was holding

Head bowed skin was showing

Hot night wind was blowing

Where you think you're going Kope?


Hey, I just met you

And this is crazy

But I am freezing

So warm me, maybe?


It's hard to look right, at you Kope

But I am freezing

So warm me, maybe?"

What left me wanting: Can I have Sweet Reckoning now?

Final verdict: Fantastic sequel that leaves you in just enough peril to want the next book. READ.IT.
