Evil is running rampant and sweet Anna Whitt is its target. Nobody knows when or how the Dukes will strike, but Anna and her Nephilim allies will do anything necessary to rid the earth of the demons and their oppressive ways.
The stakes are higher than ever, and Anna is determined that the love she feels will be her strength, not a liability. But trying to protect the ones she loves while running for her life and battling demonic forces proves to be perilous—especially as faces are changing and trust is fleeting. When the Duke of Lust sends Anna’s great love, Kaidan Rowe, to work against her, Anna must decide how much she’s prepared to risk.
In the most sensual and fast-paced installment yet, Sweet Reckoning brings all the beloved Neph together one last time to fight for their freedom.”

Hey guys! Meaghan here again! I just finished off the Sweet Trilogy, and am posting my final review here! I do plan to read Sweet Temptation as well, the entire story from Kaidan’s POV, but that will probably happen after I read I’ll Give You The Sun and Empire of Storms!
“Life was often so cruel, so ugly. And then, in the midst of all the madness, a precious gift would be placed in your lap. Because life could also be so sweet.”
Stars (Out of 10): 8.5/10 Stars
Overall Thoughts: I’ve come to really like this series as the books went on. Compared to the first book, this last one was a major improvement. Sexual tension was no longer driving the story, there was a proper plot, and there has been growth in all of our characters.
SPOILERS BEGIN HERE
The Good: I liked how there was both plot and character moments in this book, allowing us to still see all the characters in action one last time. I also liked that some Dukes not choosing enlightenment affected their children, since they had been raised by those fathers, even if in a cruel way. Almost all the events seemed pretty realistic, and I was kept on the edge of my seat for the final battle.
The Bad: The ending was a tad predictable, and the final battle seemed super lucky in my opinion. However, there wasn’t much bad besides that.
The Characters: I liked how we saw redemption for some of the more unlikable characters, and all the moments where we got to see all the characters true personalities away from the Dukes, such as the dinner at Patti’s. I don’t feel any one character was ignored, and their influence on the book was really balanced with importance to the story.
The Plot: I liked where this book took the story, from Marna becoming pregnant, to Jay being filled in on everything rather than being cast to the side, and how all the previous problems still needed to be solved, such as Anna’s virginity. Overall, it ended with a lot of closure, which is always a nice thing in a series like this.
The Favorite Character: Marna
