Sweet Reckoning by Wendy Higgins

Genre:  YA Paranormal Romance
The Sweet Trilogy, Book 3

Note:  This is the third book in a series.  If you haven't read the first two, reader beware.

Description (taken from Wendy Higgins' website):
It’s time.

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.

Seeing this series end is so bittersweet.  I absolutely loved the first two books, and I loved the last one.  Seeing Anna and her nephilim stand together against the demonic dukes was awesome.

Anna is still trying to get as many Nephilim on her side to face the dukes.  She has faith that good will prevail over this perilous situation.  And she's got to get her friends believing this as well.  But the Dukes aren't trusting Anna when she says she's working and tainting humans for the good of evil (a bit oxymoronic, right?).  So they send other Nephilim to make sure she's behaving evilly.  But things just happen to work against someone...

This book ties everything up nicely.  It leaves no stones unturned.  And in the end, you're left with this happy-go-lucky-good-will-prevail-evil feeling that's super nice.  The only downside I have is it was super-duper predictable, but that's not a bad thing in the end.  And I think I tend to lose steam once the romance has budded and everything starts working well (I guess I like conflict).  Overall, this series was sweet!

If you are looking for a clean series to read, this is one I can recommend.  While there are adult-themed subjects throughout the book, I honestly don't think anyone can truly complain about these books.  They're really sweet to read and keep you begging for more.
