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?
"Sweet Peril (Sweet, #2)" Reviews
Oh Kai, your mind is a very dirty place to be that I have no problem on living in. ;)
FIRE! FIRE! FIRE!
Call on a battalion of firefighters because I think this book just set my whole being on fire!
Here in our country we are currently experiencing an epic case of heat wave, but dammit, it wasn't the thing that got me sweating an entire ocean!
Seriously, THIS. BOOK. IS. HOTTER. THAN. THE. SUMMER. SUN.
And I think I just died of heat stroke and went straight up to heaven, because that's the only reason I can think of me feeling this kind of extreme elation!
THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS FROM THE BOOK(Although the major ones would be hidden), a slight obnoxious amount of VIRTUAL SCREAMING through either means of usage of CAPS or bold letters or BOTH and a heck load of gif pictures of uncontrollable emotions of panic, happiness, fangirling, freaking out and everything and anything in between that cannot be fully expressed by the author. Okay, maybe you've already noticed the caps, bold, and gifs. This long run-on sentence is a proof that you have been warned.
Sweet Peril begins with a prologue about the fate faced by two Nephilim who fell in love with each other in the past. So basically, Wendy Higgins wanted to then and there scare the crap out of all of us, by telling 'Yeahhhh...Kaidan and Anna are never ever ever getting back together, unless you want them dead eh?'. Okaaaaaaay, maybe that was just my masochistic(and Taylor Swift song replaying) brain speaking and not what she really meant, but still it was one heck of a downer!
But be still all fangirl and fanboy hearts, Wendy made up for it big time! [spoilers removed]*wink*
So after that heartbreaking prologue, this book picks up months after the end of the first book. Anna made a 360 from the school's good girl to this major party girl. But it's all for show, because the demon whisperers are lurking around to see if all the Nephilims are doing their corresponding "jobs".
But these demon whisperers gave extra attention on breathing down her neck because of the suspicions of some Dukes on her and her father. We then see Anna's struggle on keeping up this facade, that is wholly against her other nature, just to survive. And on top all that, she does this all with a broken heart and other conflicting feelings for a certain boy named Kaidan Rowe.
Okay, if that was me, I think I might just pass out from all that stress. So, I can't help admire Anna on the way she handled everything that is thrown at her in this book. She handled it with determination and she remained strong all throughout without losing that compassionate side of her that I love.
But of course, that's not interesting enough, there will be this thing [spoilers removed] that she unveils which will take her to this trip around the world with Kopano. And thus cue the enter of the love triangle.
Unlike many love triangles I've read, this has gotta be one of the rare ones that was handled beautifully. Each guy was a given a fair chance[spoilers removed] with the girl, thus the results and decisions she made was easy to accept and understandable. Each boy got their own special moments with Anna, and Wendy did an amazing job at transitioning the Kopano moments to the Kaidan moments.
And let's fast forward to those Kaidan moments shall we?
OH DEAR HEAVENS! Excuse me while I faint.
OH MY DEAR HEAVENS AGAIN!!!!!!!!! Those Kai moments, were the moments I was living for!
Girls, brace yourselves! Kaidan will get your hormones, ovaries, fallopian tubes and other female parts in a giffy! Heck, he made mine do a tango around my other poor unsuspecting internal organs! I was not kidding when I said that Kaidan and Anna got me sweating. The romantic and sexual tension between this two in this book is unlike anything I have ever witnessed and experienced before. We all witness their blazing chemistry in book 1, but hell fire on loose, this was just a whole other epic level. It's like a flamethrower on steroids with a life of its own, shooting everything in its path and burning them in flames together with this two. It is HOTNESS OVERLOAD with a side of SWOON EXPLOSION.
Note: That is still Wade Poezyn, but with long-ish hair. Like the way Kaidan wore it here in Sweet Peril. And yeah, there's Anna. [spoilers removed]
In their time apart and all that denying each other, we can all conclude that there will be a lot of pent up emotion and frustrations. Just imagine that, all breaking out? And yeah, also put that at a limited time frame to deal with. YUP, AN INSTANT SAUNA RIGHT THERE!
But the main thing that I love most about those moments, aside from the obvious totally hot reasons, is the vulnerability that we got to witness from Kai. He managed to open up, if not all, most of his insecurities and fears to Anna. They developed this honesty in their relationship towards the end and it was just so sweet, and sigh-worthy. And I fell a little more in love with Kaidan Rowe. And I can't even begin to cope how that's possible because I already love him too much. Eeeeepppp!
The other characters we love such as the twins, Blake, Patti and Belial was very much present too. Ginger, who I didn't like in the first book, has surprisingly grown on me. Marna was just this perfect best friend for us readersAnna, asking all the right questions to the tidbits we badly want to know! LOL. AND A BIG SHOUT OUT TO BLAKE! This guy is funny as hell and I adore him so much! [spoilers removed]
New characters will also be introduced that would play a vital part in the last book. A particular scene towards the end involving most of them had my heart frozen from the suspense! It was crazy! I felt like I was there with them and all!
This sequel was a perfect follow-up to a series that is quickly becoming one of best I've read. It provided a great continuation to the main plot and build this strong foundation to a new one that will aid to an already seeming unforgettable finish. It was captivating, thrilling, heart-stopping and just downright amazing. I'm already craving and begging for more! How can I ever wait for another year?
Just read the first chapter of this book and gaaaaaaaaah! THE FEELS! Someone help my aching heart! I need this book now! *le cries*
I JUST NEED MORE OF YOU, OKAY? *lies in a heap under your feet*
The followup to Sweet Evil is amazing and seductive. And Kai...? Swoon
Ah, I love being in this boy's head...or having him inside mine. Both. His way of looking at things is so interesting. And hot.
Meet Kaidan Rowe...
Who is he?
The main drummer in a band
Desired by all the girls
Loved by his fans
But he's also an 18 year old boy and the son of Pharzuph, who's the duke of Lust.
And against the rules, Kaidan fell for a half angel-half demon girl, who's the daughter of Belial - the Duke of substance abuse (e.g alcohol, drugs, etc).
Meet Anna Whitt...
Who is she?
A good 17 year old girl who is turning bad ever since the boy she loved left her. She is struggling to resist the temptations, but is slowly failing
She's destined for greatness
But can she do it without Kaidan? Can she hold on and keep her head in the game? And what of Kopano - the son of Wrath?
Sweet Peril is the sequel to Sweet Evil, which i absolutely loved and couldn't put down. This was a fantastic continuation to the trilogy and i was not let down.
I won't tell you what Sweet Peril is about because i don't want to give away any spoilers for the previous book, but i will say this - it's based on teens who's lives literally depend on being bad influences. This is the fate of sons and daughters of the Fallen Angels. Most of them don't have a choice but to do the bidding of their parents, they call it 'working'.
e.g - working, for the son of Lust, is considered having sex and seducing woman.
“I was more myself with you during those three days than I’ve ever been with anyone in my life. It’d be easier if I could be fake with you, but you bring out everything in me, little Ann. All of it.”
This book is a solid 5 star read if you ignore my issues with it - like not being able to get into it more because of lack of time.
I also had an issue with Anna, she was sometimes really annoying and was too good -she didn't let/like when people swore and she stopped Kaidan from saying dirty words to her. I was like...
Speaking of talking dirty, there was a lot more steamy hot scenes in this book than in the previous one, which i was certainly happy about.
“Spend the night with me.” (...)
“I’m tired of living like I’m not alive.” He dropped his hands from my face to grip my shoulders. “I’m bloody sick to death of it. I want one night to be alive. With you.” He closed his eyes and leaned his forehead on mine.
“Please, Anna. One last night and we’ll go back to being safe again. I need this. I need you.”
But don't get your hopes up that you'll get a lot more of Kaidan and Anna scenes, cause my darling, you won't. In fact, half the book is about them getting back together and forgiving each other for their mistakes ( and believe me there were a lot of mistakes when they were seperate).
Sweet Peril was an amazing read that i extremly enjoyed. Full of action and new truths that just hit you like a fist in the face. There was lots of new, interesting characters that i fell in love with and can't wait to read more about. Definitely recommend this to Sweet Evil fans.
“I love you," I whispered.
"I've loved you longer," he said.”
Yes, three stars and you'll know why. I didn't feel like anything really happened or maybe it's just me but seeing Anna again was really refreshing. She's changed but she's still like the Anna we met in Sweet Evil.
Review is under construction.
IT HAS A COVER!
Anna looks so ..so much like a bad girl. Look at her face and I never imagined her wearing black. Kaidan has a innocent look going on ...oh the feels. THE FEELS.
Me and other lovely and awesome readers read Sweet Evil and we really don't want to wait more than we usually do for Book 2. So please please please pick this up and start working your magic publicating (yes, I made that word up) powers and GIVE US SWEET HOPE. *gets on knees*
Sincerely, Me + Other readers
I WANT MORE. I NEED MORE for Kaidan, of Anna, of everything!
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH HARPER!! I LOVE YOU! YOU PICKED UP BOOK 2 AND BOOK 3?! *hugs* THANK YOU.
IT HAS A TITLE.
I really approve of this.
