Goodreads description:
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?

I love this series! It has the incredible ability to suck me into the pages so I don't want to look away for very long before I reach the last. That was the case with Sweet Peril. This book stole my attention from cover to cover and I was left wanting more.

Although I didn't like this book quite as much as Sweet Evil, it was still an incredible sequel. The romance was . . . oh, man, I absolutely loved it! It was one of my favorite parts of the entire book. Kaidan is on of my favorite heroes—right up there with Adrian and Dante.

I also loved the traveling and cultural aspect of the book. There was a focus on world issues—not just local ones. Anna traveled to different locations in the world and in the U.S. but actually returned home after whatever task at hand was completed. I really liked that. In most books, it seems if the heroine leave home to travel somewhere, she doesn't ever return (or, at least for a very long time).

Overall, this book and this series has definitely caught my attention, and I am looking forward to the next book—and more of Anna and Kaidan!


  1. I absolutely LOVE this series and I agree! It's funny because Sweet Peril was my first review on my blog. (meaning it was really bad) But oh my gawd....Kaidan is definitely one of my fave book boyfriends. I have to agree with you, Sweet Evil was better but I still loved this one. I can't wait till the next book and I wonder what will happen next!

  2. I completely agree with you! Kaidan is literally at the top 5 in my list of hottest guys in fiction. I think that the beginning of this one wasn't that good, but the last half brought it up to the point where it could easily be 4 stars+, and also, I'm totally in love with Anna and Kai as a couple, so that just raised it even higher in my mind. The author actually lives so close to me, that her local bookstore is also mine and I met her at one of her signings there!

    I nominated you for the Liebster Award! Check out this link for more info:

  3. I really need to get to this book. I really liked the first one. I just need to get it going with it. :)

    1. I hope you like it when you get to reading it!
