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 started this book on the road, so excited and ready to dive in. In the beginning, I was nervous and scared being that Kaiden made a sudden disappearance. And I wasn’t sure at all what would happen… Still, I pushed though reading the book and YES! This book is FREAKING GOLD!

Alright, lets dive right in and talk about the plot. It’s awesome and totally entertaining. Never wavering from the lack of emotions, I adore reading every single page.  It moves a great pace, allowing the reader to fall in slowly then all together never letting the reader go. I think what was most exciting for me, is watching Kaiden and Anna interact with each  other. The back and forth of emotions, the struggle of doing what is right verses what is expected of you, really kept me deep into the story.

Now, the love interest. Oh Boy! Kaiden, sweetie you still my breath away. Not to mention the author had my heart racing thinking that there might be a love triangle. FEAR NOT! There is no love triangle. Just a dumb boy, who once gets his head on straight, it all goes good. In the beginning there is a bit of a struggle going on, but once they declare their emotions it’s on baby! Watching these two change each to other and those around the them, you feel nothing but hope.

I’m super excited to read the next book. A very interesting plot with great world building, I need more. Sweet Peril is an utterly engrossing story that you can not come out of. With the great charisma Kaiden throws at you combined with Anna’s sweetness  you can’t help but fall in love with them. A jaw-dropping sequel, Sweet Peril is a captivating story leaving you wanting more.

I give it 5 BITES!


Happy Reading!

    I was worried about the formation of a love triangle in this one as well, and I could just hug Anna (and Wendy) for how that whole situation was handled. I LOVE KAIDAN SO MUCH! No one could every win my loyalty away from him. I”m so glad you loved this one was much as I did Savy!
