Previous Book in the Series: Sweet Evil (The Sweet Trilogy #1)


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?


My Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

My Review: 

This series was a lot better than the first one. I had started this out first tbh, not knowing it was a series book, and then I realized, went back to read the first and came back to reading this later.


Anne is way smarter here than the first book. Of course, she hadn’t known her true identity and all the angels-demons things. But apart from that knowledge, she has matured as a person as well. I still saw her acting immaturely at times, but it’s a progress nonetheless. The coolest part is probably her compulsion to alcohol and drinking. Lol I know it’s supposed to be a bad thing but I can’t help it if the author portrays it in such a fantastic manner :p

Kai. *sigh* *sigh*

His presence is greatly compromised here, and I object to that! Okay just kidding, even though Wendy Higgins doesn’t show Kai being physically present up until almost the middle section of the book it’s still drool worthy enough. I get to see Kai, specially the  jealous Kai and oh boy, quite HAWT that is xD


Even though you can say Kope appears more than Kai for the first half it’s not like Kaidan’s presence, obviously. He shares some almost-intense moments with Anne, but Anne seems quite fixated on Kaidan and nobody else in heaven or hell or earth in between and poor Kope’s chances seem thin.

The plot.

It is STUPENDOUS (that’s me trying to throw a heavy word :p). It is more intense, more action-packed, more risqué, perilous and all the similar adjectives you can possibly think of! A lot happens and I never felt boring or scanning through any of the pages. The story doesn’t drag and it’s amazing to see how Wendy Higgins manages to keep up with each characters characteristics so wonderfully and never messing it up for once. I hear the audiobooks are awesome since you can actually feel the dialogues and the accents so this is possibly one of the very few books I want to listen to the audiobooks of.
