Sweet Temptation (The Sweet Series #4) by Wendy Higgins
Bad boy Kaidan Rowe has never wanted for anything—money, popularity, musical talent…hot girls—but seducing them is part of his duty as a Nephilim, slave to the demon Dukes. As the son of the Duke of Lust, Kaidan has learned his father’s ways, becoming a master of passion, a manipulator of chemistry. Disobeying his father would mean certain death. Thankfully for Kaidan, he’s good at his job. And he enjoys it.
Until he meets Anna Whitt—smart, feisty, and inexplicably good—the one girl seemingly immune to his charms. The daughter of a guardian angel and a fallen one, she makes him wish for more than he could ever deserve.
Determined to save all the Neph from their dark lives, Anna joins forces with Kaidan to overcome the Dukes’ oppressive ways. In the light of her affections, Kaidan must undergo his toughest test of all, a battle of the heart.
Sensual and swoonworthy, this companion volume to the Sweet Evil series, told from the perspective of the mysterious Kaidan Rowe, gives readers revealing insights into the true emotions that drive him.
Okay, deep breath, how to write a review on this book? As you probably already know, I’m a big fan of The Sweet Trilogy and of Wendy Higgins. I was excited when she announced that the third book wasn’t quite the end of the trilogy and that there was going to be a fourth book telling the whole story over again…from Kai’s point of view. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book!
Now that I’ve read it, I have to say it exceeded my expectations. I was a bit worried that it wouldn’t capture my interest as much as the other books because I already knew the story and what the outcomes were. However, I’m happy to say that this book fully captivated me. While I did know the main outcomes, there were smaller ones that I had forgotten and got to relive all over again. Plus, there was a bunch of new content to experience as well.
I loved being on this journey through Kai’s POV. While I clearly loved it from Anna’s POV as well, the two are so different. This book had a different tone to it and it was written more maturely.
I definitely don’t have anything to complain about with this book. I love love loved it! I highly recommend it to anyone who read and loved (or liked) The Sweet Trilogy and anyone who sighs for Kai. If you haven’t read the previous books in the series, I highly recommend you do that as well!
Best Aspect: Everything!
Worst Aspect: Nothing!
