Sweet Peril by Wendy Higgins

Title: Sweet Peril
Author: Wendy Higgins
Genre: YA Paranormal/ YA Romance
Pages: 371
Age: 16+ (for some sensuality)
Review Rating: 3/4


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?


I had my last final on Tuesday April 30th, and as a reward went and got this book at Barnes and Noble. I was so excited to read this, I was literally jumping up and down to get the book. As soon as I got home I started it, and boy was I in for a treat. From page one I loved it!! The relationships that Higgins creates are just amazing, making you hate who you should hate, and love whom you should love. Kope is amazing! I love the hidden secrets, the place in his heart you know that Anna could touch if she wanted to. But while there is a connection, there will always be Kai. Kai always and forever! I love him!! He is still reeling from the events of the summit at the end of Sweet Evil, and he is still doing whatever he can to keep Anna safe. Anna and Kai are amazing, their chemistry is palpable. That being said, I feel like Anna is a little whinny when it comes to Kai. Instead of pushing forward, she sits around a little until she gets her way (which I won't tell you what that is, because that would be a spoiler). 

A note on sexual content for the book. There is one section of the novel that really push it. I love sexual tension like everyone else, but the scene that Higgins describes is a little more detailed then I personally was comfortable with in a teen novel. 

However, putting that aside, I really loved the novel and it was everything that I had hoped for!!
