Ever since I finished Sweet Evil by: Wendy Higgins, I have wanted to read Sweet Peril. However, I have been putting it off because I knew It would leave me desperate for Sweet Reckoning. Well I decided I couldn’t hold myself back any longer and I bought and read it. I was totally right about my reaction. I loved it and now am desperate for April to get here so I can read Sweet Reckoning.
Here is the description from Goodreads for Sweet Peril:
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?
Like I said, I was putting off buying and reading this book because I knew it would leave me impatient for the last book, but I saw a reference to Sweet Evil in Origin by Jennifer L. Armentrout and decided it was a sign that it was time to read Sweet Peril. I was right about it leaving me needing the last book. This book doesn’t have a cliffhanger in the traditional sense, but it does leave you with enough a suspense to crave the last book.
I loved this book, I think even more than Sweet Evil. I thought reading about Anna having to be a party girl and/or her having to travel with Kope would be awkward and uncomfortable, but in reality this book sucked me in from the first page, and I absolutely did not want to put it down. I even used it as a reward for myself for doing homework. Once I would reach a specific bench mark, I would reward myself with another chapter. That was the only way I could force myself to focus on doing anything other than reading this book.
I honestly can’t think of anything I didn’t like about Sweet Peril. Surely there must have been something, right? I feel like there was something I was going to mention, but whatever it was was so minor in comparison to the awesomeness that is this book that I can’t even remember what it was.
We get to see all of our old favorite characters in this book. I would have liked to have seen a little more of Jay and Veronica, and honestly I find myself hoping that they break up and that Jay gets with Marna. That might be mean, but I don’t think Jay and Roni are really right for each other.
I also would have liked to have seen a little more of Patti, but I guess it’s good that Anna is coming into her own more and doesn’t need to fall back on her mom whenever things get rough.
Kaidan is still around and still amazing. There is really nothing else to be said about him.
I have high hopes for Kope’s future happiness as well. I really hope something more develops between him and Z.
Overall, I absolutely loved this book and will be counting down the days until the last book is released. In fact, I will probably be pre-ordering it as soon as I see it on Amazon.
