Sweet Peril (The Sweet Trilogy #2) by Wendy Higgins

Sweet Peril (The Sweet Trilogy, #2)
Blurb (from Goodreads):
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 of 5 stars

Sweet Peril (The Sweet Trilogy, #2)(Source: I own a copy of this book.)
Anna and Kai are apart, and both must work whether they like it or not.
Can Anna and Kai find a way to be together? And is there a way to stop the dukes?

This was a really good sequel to Sweet Evil, and I actually preferred it!

Anna was still a little naïve in this book, but at least she had begun to see how things were, and to understand that life isn’t fair. She was maybe a little stubborn in the way she was working, but not working, but she was technically doing what her father told her to do.

The storyline was much better in this book, and I liked how we began to see a plan of action appearing, with a way that Anna and crew actually planned to deal with the nephilim. Although there was a lot of travelling in this book, it did seem to have more going for it, and this didn’t seem to have second book syndrome. I liked the little plot twists, and I actually liked the bad situation Anna and Kai found themselves in.
There was some romance in this book, and I was pleased that Kai eventually manned up and admitted the way he felt for Anna. Eventually! There were even some seriously steamy moments between this pair, even though there wasn’t any actual sex.
The ending to this was pretty good, and I’m interested to see where the story goes from here!
Overall; much better than the first book,
8 out of 10.


  1. I am interested to see what you think of the last book because many have not liked it.

  2. That's quite funny, I thought the last one was the best of the lot! Typical of me to be difficult!

  3. I loved how the relationship dynamic between Anna and Kai evolved throughout the book. This was actually my favourite book in the trilogy, and it's not often that the second book is my favourite! I loved the storyline of this one.
    Great review :)
