Sweet Temptation 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.”

-Synopsis taken from Goodreads

Hey guys! Finally finished the final book of the Sweet Evil series, Sweet Temptation! This book is basically the entire series in Kaidan’s point of view. However, without reading the original Sweet Trilogy first, this book won’t make much sense since it doesn’t fully elaborate on the actually plot!

“I think Anna Whitt is bad for my health.”

Stars (Out of 10): 8/10 Stars

Overall Thoughts: I thought this book would feel like a useless addition to the series, but it actually gave way more of insight into Kaidan’s character, as well as embellished on points not fully explained in the original trilogy. The epilogue was also way more general, and focused on the after as a whole, not a specific scene in the future, so I felt we got a much more complete ending to the series.

SPOILERS BEGIN HERE

The Good: I really liked the side of Kaidan we got to see in this, and more fully see how he changes and deals with everything. I also found a different kind of closure in this book that I didn’t find in Sweet Reckoning, as I thought the epilogue was way more explanatory of their future after the demons were gone.

The Bad: It technically didn’t have a plot besides Kaidan’s and Anna’s relationship, so in some chapters it felt a bit empty. I would’ve liked some additional information or something going on, but I understand how that would’ve been tough to keep true to the other plot that occurred in Sweet Evil.

The Characters: I liked the different side of Kaidan we got to see in this book, and how it explained his actions throughout the series. I really hated the guy in the first book and a half for what he did to Anna, but knowing it was all Belial’s fault changed that.

The Plot: I really understood why the author mentioned to read this after the other three, since there is no way I would’ve known the actual plot without having read the other series first. While it mentioned events, it didn’t explain the plot, since Kaidan wasn’t truly in the know of it at all times.

The Favorite Character: Marna
