SWEET PERIL BY WENDY HIGGINS
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?

Purchase Sweet Peril:
After earning a bachelors in Creative Writing from George Mason University and a masters in Curriculum and Instruction from Radford, Wendy taught high school English until becoming a mommy. Writing Young Adult (YA) stories gives her the opportunity to delve into the ambiguities of those pivotal, daunting, and exciting years before adulthood. She lives in Northern Virginia with her husband, daughter, and son. Sweet Evil is her debut novel.
WOW….Just WOW….So I totally fell in love with Sweet Evil and literally cried when I finished reading it so to say that I was DYING to read the Sequel, Sweet Peril, is an understatement…And Wendy Higgins did not disappoint. Sweet Peril is a 5++++ Star AMAZING, PHENOMENAL, and emotional read and definitely is on my 2013 favorites list!!
First, What a PHENOMENAL cover! I found myself glancing at it several times...I mean it is just gorgeous! The colors are perfect for this story and Anna and Kaiden are portrayed exactly as I would have imagined...
The main character, Anna, is so easy to connect with and understand. I love that she is a Neph and has all the evil urges but fights so hard to overcome them and be good. I love the fact that she is SO good and so pure. Her connection with her father is adorable. He is supposed to be completely evil but because he fell in love with an angel and they had Anna, he has come to know the good in everything. I love that he comes to her rescue and is so protective of her.
I also love her “mother”, Patti and how wonderful she is. She loves Anna so much and treats her as though she is her birth daughter. She knows all about Anna’s situation and understands it completely.
Now, Anna and Kaiden. Oh Anna and Kaiden…..They are my most favorite fictional character couple EVER. Their love could span centuries. I love the friction between them and Wendy writes their emotions so perfectly into the story. I found myself feeling as though I was right there with them experiencing every emotion. They have so many struggles and triumphs. I literally could read about them ALL DAY AND ALL NIGHT. Their story is so beautiful and yet so tragic.
"All You have to do is say the word, Kai, and I'm yours, in heart if nothing else." (Anna)
I love the progression into the story. I love the fact that “new” characters arise and new alliances are made. The story deepens so much and it just makes me want to read the conclusion SOOO bad! I mean when this story closes it is going to be EPIC!!!
Wendy Higgins is such a phenomenal young adult writer. Sweet Evil & Sweet Peril were both 5 star reads and such amazing stories. I also love that Wendy is so unbelievably loyal to her fans. She knows how much her friends crazy her Sweet series and she goes above and beyond to appreciate the fans. She holds contests to give away ARCS and swag and responds to just about all the posts that fans make on her blog. This just makes us fans/bloggers love her more.
I cannot wait to read Sweet Redemption…Like I said before…This is going to be EPIC….
