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

Fans of Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments series will be drawn to Wendy Higgins's sexy, thrilling Sweet Evil series.

Sweet Peril focuses on the battle between light and dark, good and evil, within Anna Whitt, the child of a guardian angel mother and a demon father. Anna promised herself she'd never do the work of her father—polluting souls. She'd been naive to make such a claim. Haunted by demon whisperers, Anna does whatever she can to survive, even if it means earning an unwanted reputation as her school's party girl. And all the while there's gorgeous bad-boy Kaidan Rowe, the son of the Duke of Lust, plaguing her heart and mind.

Anna discovers it is her fate to banish demons from the earth, and save the other Nephilim from their dark destiny. 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?

Awesome Sequel! THANK YOU Wendy Higgins for writing an amazing, unputdownable sequel! What I LUV'D: Let's start with the cover...Can I have Anna's dress, please? (Can I also have her figure to go with the dress because that would be great, thanks.) Action, adventure, brownies, cuddling, kissing and wrestling - this sequel has a little something for everyone! We're introduced to new characters and get to hang with familiar faces (two of which look exactly alike - go figure). Kopano gets LOTS of page time, and of course, there's Kaidan Rowe, everyone's favorite drummer boy guy. (BTW, I vote that Wendy Higgins writes a Kaidan novella that features a roadie named Jen. Her job could be to bake cupcakes for the band and carry Kaidan's drumsticks because I totally rock at carrying stuff! Just sayin') Anna has become one of my favorite female characters - she's strong willed, compassionate and her ability to see the best in people is something we should all aspire to whether you're a fictional character or not. She's faced with a task so big, there's no way she can accomplish it all on her own and she is surrounded by those who doubt she can succeed at all, but Anna has something they don't...she has hope that all things are possible. *high fives her* Anna also has two very swoonilicious guys in her life, and how lucky is she?! They're both tall, dark and delicious and they both rock abs accents. While it's no secret which of the two beat out the rhythm of her heart song, she does come to the realization that she has genuine feelings for both and things get a little, um, interesting. I like that Anna is mature enough to understand that she has an important purpose to fulfill and the world does not revolve around her love life. Let me just say, that I'm a die-hard Kaidanite, but Kopano made me feel all the feels in Sweet Peril. So much so, I decided to adapt a song for him... *clears throat* "I threw a wish in the well Don't ask me, I'll never tell I looked to you, as it fell And now I smell car-a-mel I'd trade my Neph for a wish Auras and plagues for a kiss I wasn't looking for this But now we're wre-stl-ing. You're prayer was holding Head bowed skin was showing Hot night wind was blowing Where you think you're going Kope? Hey, I just met you And this is crazy But I am freezing So warm me, maybe? It's hard to look right, at you Kope But I am freezing So warm me, maybe?" What left me wanting: Can I have Sweet Reckoning now? Final verdict: Fantastic sequel that leaves you in just enough peril to want the next book. READ.IT.

My Thoughts:  I just love when I find a series that I cannot get enough of; that I just want to devour, page by page word by word. T he Sweet Trilogy is one of those series. A series I just can’t get enough of; can’t get enough of the story, can’t get enough of the characters. Wendy has created a series, a world, which I am so glad I can get lost in. It’s the world that Wendy created that I find so unique and so very interesting. She created this world where angels, nephilim and even demons exist. I have read quite a bit of angel books, and I have found only a few that that I thoroughly enjoy.  Sweet Peril is one of those few that I simply love. It is her take on angels, nephilim and demons that is interesting. Wendy created this whole new idea on how these creatures live and function that is all very fascinating. The old energy was alive between us. I was aware of him, of every detail about him, just as I'd always been.  And I could tell by the tightness in his body that he was hyperaware of me, too. Sweet Peril picks up about six months after the first book ends.  Anna is still trying her best to find a balance between her demon and angel sides. Still trying to figure out her purpose, what she is supposed to be doing. Still trying to avoid those damn demon whispers, still trying to have a close-to-normal life as she can. And as I got deeper and deeper into the book I saw that Anna really is a strong character. I saw a lot of growth in her since the first book, she seemed to have a much more leveled head then she did before, even though she is still a bit confused on how to handle everything that is happening to her. I was glad to see where she was as a whole. Anna is still trying to get over or come to terms with the fact that Kaidan can’t be seen with her.  I could feel the sadness that she had about how things ended in the last book. But as she starts to slowly figure out her purpose, she starts surrounding herself with a team of nephilim who are ready to stop being treated the way they are, Kaidan included. Now, when Kaidan is around, I loved every single second of it. Who wouldn't, really? Like Anna, you can see the struggle they are fighting against, the struggle to hide their feeling for each other. It was a very emotional experience, even for me, the reader. Everything that happens between these two characters, Kai and Anna, is all very intense.  I enjoyed every second of that! Also, I could see the change, the growth, of Kaidan.  I’m very proud of the progress he has made, though at times in the book, I wanted to face-palm him. But despite the situation with those two, they kept fighting; they try their best to do what is right. Anna and Kaidan aren't the only characters worth reading about, oh no, I really enjoyed the other Neph. The twins, loved them, and Kopano. Who I really got to understand and know. I was able to see, to experience that these Neph, they all have these conflicts that they are fighting, both within them and around them. It was sad to see some of their situations.  I’m glad that Wendy gives her readers an opportunity to get a more in-depth look at the lives of the Neph. Not only were the characters wonderful, but so was the story and the pace. Wendy moved the story along nicely, gave me just enough to want more of the book, more of her story. I even got goose-bumps at certain parts of the book! Now, if an author can do that, it’s pretty incredible.  Sweet Peril was a great second book in the Sweet Trilogy, better than I could of even hoped for. Wendy is a very talented author. And the story she created, I became so engrossed with, I couldn't put the book down until I consumed every last word. I really do recommend this book to angel lovers, and those who would like a different take on angels, nephilim and demons. Wendy created a really cool world to get lost in.

To give the author credit, the idea and concept of the story are realing intriguing and unique compared to YA literature on the shelves at the moment. Her writing is good and i really do like some if the characters she writes about like Kope and Blake. Its just that this book had no freaking plot. Dont get me wrong, i wasnt dying of boredom, but i kept waiting and waiting for something important and plot twisting to happen but it never happens. The whole story goes way to quickly, skipping entire months and although thats better than packing tons of insignificant scenes into each chapter, i still felt disconnectes from the story because of this. It seems that up until three quarters of the way into the book all we see Anna do is recruiy allies from around the world and pathetically obssess over Kaiden. Ive got nothing against Kaiden, and in fact enjoy their couple of romantic scenes, especially the scenes in his apartment that made me feel all warm and blush-y, but Anna was seriously bordering an unhealthy mental obssession with this kid. They could go months without talking and he'll keep pushing her away but shes willing to leave everything for him at the drop of a hat. I just wished she would have a little more dignity, but otherwise shes not a terrible character. Sure, the author was really over exaggerating Annas good girl persona in the first book, but in this one its much less cringe-worthy. The romance is dull up until about halfway in and then the author gets your blood racing. If you read the first book and enjoyed all the heated scenes between Anna and Kaiden, rest assured that this book will not disappoing... you'll just have to hang in there a little while. Overall, i actually did enjoy the book, it was just the damn plotline that left me unsatisfied. If you read and liked the first book, i highly recommend this one, especially to enjoy those scenes with Kaiden.

Supernatural Fun! Sweet Peril by Wendy Higgins opens with a story from Rome in the 1700’s where two Nephilim are punished for loving each other. Six months have passed since book one and since Anna and Kaidan have seen each other. Kaidan and Anna know they need to stay apart for their own safety as well as the safety of the rebelling Nephilim and supporting demons. Anna has been given a mission and she’s going to be working with Kope. Their mission is to save a young woman in a part of the world where women are devalued, degraded and abused. Her name is Zania. Kope and Anna meet with two Nephilim and then their emotions get in the way, so they decide traveling together is too difficult. Anna then travels alone and she is finally able to have a conversation with Kaidan and they are finally honest with each other and learn how to make their relationship work. Unexpectedly, Kope and Kaidan work together, by wearing Arabic disguises and saving Zania by pretending to purchase her for slavery. Blake, Kaidan, Anna, Kope and Zania are forced to hide in the cold ocean water because the Dukes come to the island they are staying on. While shivering in the water, they are witnesses to a Nephilim murder by the Neph’s own father. The group works with Anna’s father, continually strategizing to build the rebellion up. Sweet Peril is just as exciting as the first book, Sweet Evil, in this supernatural series by Wendy Higgins. 5 stars!

Swords of Righteousness This one was even better than the first. I love the turn that Sweet Peril took for this series. Anna and Kaidan aren't together in the beginning of the book and instead Anna finds herself with her human friends and the Nephilim friends that Kai introduced her to. Her dad puts her on a journey with Kope who is a seriously sweet Neph who has feelings for Anna. They are going around the world in search of allies. I loved the travel to other countries and the many other Neph introduced. Higgins absolutely has a way of making characters so lovable. Even with so many different personalities, every character has a place in the story and so much depth and back-story. Anna has grown so much from the first book. She's not nearly as naive, and she's been working on her skills. Girl can kick some major butt now and frankly her knife throwing skills are a great touch. What makes it even better is she's this little short Southern girl that no one would expect to be a threat of any kind. The plot just keeps getting more interesting! I don't want to give anything away, so just suffice it to say that things get turned up in this one and the fear for these characters is real. I can't wait to see how Higgins plans to wrap this all up. Evil Whispers It was really hard to read about how Anna just couldn't let Kaidan go. The time in Sweet Peril by the end spans a year and a half since the end of Sweet Evil. Anna is still pining after Kai months after she's seen him last and every time she runs into him he tells her there's no chance for them. And every time she says she's done, and clearly her heart isn't. The problem isn't in the fact that her heart won't let him go, but I can't fathom how she can stand to continue to persue him when he's very adamant that they won't work. I promise if a guy tells me he's done, no matter how hard my heart might protest, I will not be the one actively seeking him out. Far and Away Back to Kai. Man, Anna definitely has it bad for him, and truly who can blame her? He's that good-looking drummer in a band with a London accent that every girl wants, and he treats her so sweetly other than the fact that he just won't be with her. Things definitely get deep in this one and Kai comes back around in the second half of the book. The Bonds are Formed I'm really loving this series. The angel/demon lore is a lot of fun and definitely unique. The plot is very interesting, and all the characters are amazing. There is solid growth in the characters and the action and story-line gets more entertaining as time goes on. Definitely recommended. Originally given 4 1/2 stars at JC's Book Haven

Reviewed by Annie and posted at Under The Covers Book Blog It’s been a long time since I read the first book in the series but I remember really enjoying the characters, especially Kai. When I started reading SWEET PERIL, I was reminded of that events of the last book but Higgins doesn’t really go over the details of what happened with Anna and Kaiden and therefore, it really took some time for me to readjust and get my head up to speed on what happened. So if you’re forgetful like me, maybe it’s a good thing to read this series one book right after the other, instead of waiting a year before picking up the new one. In the beginning, I had a tough time getting reacquainted with the mythology and the events thus far because there was no recap. Good girl Anna has disappeared. She is now a party girl and I’m not quite sure that I liked this side of her. What I liked about the sweeter Anna was what she was likeable. This Anna, however, seemed a bit….boring. After the events of the last book, Kaiden is off doing his own thing while Anna is still trying to figure out how to deal. This divide between them created a major setback in what Higgins built in the first book and I wasn’t really a fan of it. However, this book does heat up quite quickly. I think this Young Adult series will cater to adults because of its more racy nature. I’d actually be a little worried if young girls were reading this book because DAMN, Kai can be a dirty bastard, can’t he? But that’s why we all love him, don’t we. There’s only one more book in the series. But Higgins has also written Kai’s book which is be from his POV. I’m not sure if I want to continue the series just yet. Something about this one kind of dragged with me. But I think whenever I’m in the mood for a bad boy YA then I will definitely be going back to this series to get my fill.

This book really gave you insight to Kaiden. Ugh, I just wanted to slap him. Does he truly care about Anna? I thought he didn't care, but then I thought maybe he does. Is it love or is it a brotherly love. Now there is Kopano in the picture. Is that who Anna is supposed to be with? Wendy Higgins truly has a wonderful way to drive you crazy with this triangle. I admire how she really holds true for Anna in helping her keep the values she was raised with, and strong enough to fight the temptation, no matter what it may be. Be ready for another adventure where the army is building.

Anna is still the good girl at heart, no matter how many innocent humans the Dukes make her turn into sinners. Together with Kopano, the Son of Wrath she's travelling the world to find new allies in fellow Nephilim and ultimately fight for their freedom. Her feelings for Kaidan are true, they can help her win this war...or put her in great danger. We meet new Nephilim, Zania and Flynn. Kopano, Blake and the twins are in for a fight against the Dukes as well. With our jet set queen Anna travelling to meet the other Nephs we are seeing different cultures and exotic places. The change in scenery is well-done, taking us to places all over the world. It's a lovely collection of new impressions and the travelling makes SWEET PERIL so much more exciting. Whenever we were granted a scene with Kaidan all my senses were set on high alert, forbidding myself to miss even the tiniest details. This boy sure is the right to be the Son of Pharzup, the Duke of Lust. SWEET PERIL allows us to see many new facets of him, e.g. his emphatic and selfless character. Anna and Kaidan are exploring their domestic and cuddly side as a couple a bit. As much as they can be smoking hot, they can be cute as hell, too. 5/5 ***** SWEET PERIL - The seven sins have never been sweeter and more tempting! After an amazing first book in the SWEET EVIL trilogy, I read SWEET PERIL in only one day. Engagingly written as it is, it was just as addicting as Wendy Higgins debut novel. Don't underestimate Kaidan Rowe's lust or better love spell!

Series still going strong into book 2. This sequel reminded me of the Twilight sequel....our heroine is sepearated from our hero most of the book. About drove me crazy and couldn't wait for them to come together. The last 8 chapters of the book just took off in a blaze and then I couldn't put it down and had to jump right into book 3. Can't wait to see how this series ends (praying for "they all lived happily ever after" ending here)
