The Sweet Trilogy, Book 4
Expected publication date: September 8, 2015
Description (taken from Goodreads):
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—sweet, smart, feisty, and inexplicably good—the one girl seemingly immune to his charms. The daughter of a guardian angel and a fallen one, she has a certain power over him, one that makes him wish for more than he could ever deserve.
Determined to save all the Neph from their dark lives as the influencers of sin, Anna joins forces with Kaidan to overcome the demons’ oppressive ways. In the light of her affections, Kaidan must undergo his toughest test of all, a battle of the heart.
Sensual and swoon worthy, this companion volume to the acclaimed Sweet Evil series from New York Times bestselling author Wendy Higgins, told from the perspective of the irresistibly sexy and mysterious Kaidan Rowe, gives readers revealing insights into his struggle, his intense connection to Anna, and most of all, the true emotions that drive him.
Sweet Temptation will encompass the entire trilogy in a condensed version, beginning with Kai's life before he met Anna, and taking readers through the epilogue of Sweet Reckoning. Sweet Temptation is a companion novel, not meant to be a stand alone story. It will definitely be a richer experience for those who have read the original trilogy.
Kaidan is your typical Nephilim: living the life guys are envious of and getting the girls with no strings attached. Kaidan's father is the Duke of Lust, so obviously Kaidan's sin is lust and he pretty much works every night. It's something he has no qualms with until he meets Anna, another Nephilim who doesn't know what she is. Innocent Anna who sees the good in everyone and doesn't let people's sin define them. But as Kaidan leads her farther into her heritage, will she still hold onto that goodness?
This story is told from Kaidan's point of view and spans across the original trilogy of this series. It is a definite must for those who absolutely loved The Sweet trilogy. Getting into Kaidan's head, seeing his point of view, and feeling his emotions... It's a different feel. There's a lot of distrust in the beginning because Kaidan has grown up with so much fear and paranoia. But in the end, he gets his happily ever after. Not really a new plot to the story, but a different side.
If I'm allowed to have multiple book boyfriends, then Kaidan's one of them. Whatever, I'm allowed. This series is one of my favorites, and I absolutely adored this fourth book. I loved seeing inside Kaidan's head. All the vulgarity and straight-forwardness. It was nice to watch his motivations change from the beginning to the end. And I still think the very last chapter is still the perfect ending to this perfect happily ever after. It was so much sweeter hearing it from Kai's point of view. Awww....
If you haven't read this series, go start it. This book is a definite for those who loved the trilogy and just can't get enough of Kai.
