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’ ...more

My boy is getting his story, and it's a hot mess. Emphasis on HOTT.

This book is more mature than the original trilogy, as far as harsher language and more sensuality and details. It's for an upper YA age range and the crossover adult crowd. Being in Kai's head is NOT like being in Anna's.

I am thankful to Kaidan for keeping me company and taking over my mind during a crazy time when I might have otherwise gone mad. I love him even more after this journey, though his story definitely isn't always

4 Sexy Kaidan Rowe Stars!

(Buddyreading this book with my sissy Avy)

Reading this book was reminiscing everything in Sweet series and bringing back the feels! I am not really fond of reading a book that rehashes the entire series using the voice of the male mc but this one was an exception because, *sigh It's KAIDAN ROWE'S POV and why not?

I knew Kaidan was sexy in Sweet Evil, Sweet Peril, and Sweet Reckoning but I think he's way sexier here

Wait a minute. You mean to tell me that after all this, the author is having the story retold.. by him?!!



Thanks, but no thanks. Because knowing how Mr. Sex on Legs works, this story is going to be a hot mess. Emphasis on the mess.

I. Sigh. For. Kai.

Thank goodness for the 4th book of the Sweet trilogy series! MORE KAIDAN ROWE! MORE SEXY, SWOON-WORTHY MOMENTS! I can't keep calm for this. I'm fangirling too much and I can't help it!


How can I not resist this book? This is told in Kaidan Rowe's perspective in the first three books of the Sweet series and … oh my GOD. I just fell in love again. Kaidan's thougts are just oh-my-scorching-hot-jalapeño. Absolutely sexy, edgy and more mature . It's nice to see those moments which ar

Wendy Higgins has released a teaser!

I jump from the couch and lunge at Anna, grasping her shoulders hard and pressing my ear to her cheek. I whisper as softly as I can. “My father is here.”
She stiffens under my hand. Yes, she knows what we are, therefore she knows Father is a demon. Be afraid, Anna.
I pull her to the couch and fling her down. Thank God for shirts with buttons. I rip it open, needing this scene to appear realistic. When she sucks in a shocked breath I press a finger to her lips. H
The world that is depicted here is very black and white, it is based in very basic concepts that generalize the way things are.

I have come to have a big problem with all the christianity based ideas that form this “fantasy” world. I found these ideas really offensive and it bothers me that they can reach so many young influential minds through these books.

An example of this would be that Anna needs to preserve her virginity until marriage in order to keep her heart pure Well, this is truly mora

Well, excuse me while I'm sighing for Kai, riding my post end-of-series depression (again) and listening to Kai's playlist. *dreams*

Also, I may or may not be more than slightly morose.

This journey with my beloved Kaidan Rowe was bittersweet. It was amazing and beautiful, but also heartbreaking.

This constant throbbing ache in my heart never left me until almost the end, when Kai broke free from the chains of his terrible past and all the fear that kept him prisoner and finally accepted he couldn

I absolutely loved being inside Kaidan Rowe's head. So, so good. This book was everything I wanted it to be and more. Kaidan will forever be my favorite paranormal YA book boy.

Excellent, excellent, excellent! Much darker and more mature than Anna's perspective, and one of Wendy's best books so far.

I blurbed this book! And since this is coming out VERY soon (Sept 8! WOO!) I'm sharing it here:

*glass case of emotion*

If this book were a cupcake, it would be a Dark Chocolate Cupcake. It's tall, dark, and sinfully delicious, just like Kaidan Rowe. It'll satisfy that chocolate craving without jeopardizing your waistline--everyone knows dark chocolate is the healthy chocolate---and leave you coming back for more.

I LUV'D being in Kai's head and getting the chance to see the whole series from his point of view, LUVED IT!

The odds are stacked against him from the start. Sure, he makes his f

My God I love it, I thought it will be boring cause it's basically what happened in the other three books but damn was I wrong.

The book was more of a retelling and Kaidan's POV is as great as that of Anna and it filled all the blank spaces when they were apart. Wendy once again whelmed me.

5 Kaidan-loving stars

I loved the Sweet series, and fell in mad love with epic bad boy hottie, Kaidan Rowe, so to get this companion novel which covers the events of all three of the original books from this POV – cue the epic fangirl squealing.

Sweet Evil, Sweet Peril and Sweet Reckoning tell the story of a group of Nephilim – children of angels and humans… although in this case, the angels in question are all fallen angels, and so essentially the Neph are

This was a nice dive back into a world that I really enjoyed. This takes a look at the events from all three of the prior Sweet Evil series books that initially took place in Anna's POV but through Kaiden's eyes.

Was this book necessary? Probably not but it was a fun. We know that Kai has a troubled past and wars with himself a lot even through Anna's eyes but seeing the story through his eyes was interesting. It didn't give a ton of insight into his character or the storylines, because Wendy di

Yes, you've seen right. I've just given 2,5 stars to Kai's book.

Book 2
Book 3

What I remember about this series...even though it's been a while...

-How much I hate Kopano as love interest.

-Limited plot & nothing is truly explored and expanded

-Kai is a sexy bastard.

-Anna is one of the biggest Mary Sues. She's too fucking perfect.

-Cant fucking understand how these guys won cause they had no real or solid plan to win the war. They just got lucky.

-Great romance, strong friendship but n

WOW!!!! This book was incredibly amazing/ wonderful/ awesome/ whatever other great adjective you can think of, that was this book!!! You've all probably guessed by now that I'm a BIG Kaidan Rowe fan, so this book was perfect. If you're like me and #sighforkai you really need to read this book when it comes out in September!!

If you didn't already know this book is a condensed version of all the Sweet books but retold from Kai's POV. So, it's not every little thing from the other books but Wendy

I really enjoyed reading the story from Kaiden's pov. At some parts it felt rushed, almost like they skipped parts. But aside from that, it was awesome!! If I didn't already love him I do now lol. Great addition to the sweet trilogy!!

Reading Kai’s POV was a great way to relive the series. I actually am so glad I ended up reading it because I was torn on reading it because of obviously knowing how it plays out. This companion novel actually kept me entertained and added to the series honestly.

My quick and simple overall: great way to reread the series in a short period of time. Highly entertaining!

Love it
You would think writing an entire trilogy in one book from a different character's POV would be difficult, but Wendy Higgins does it seamlessly! We still get all the important aspects of the main story but from Kai's perspective and it really feels like it's own book.

I love how Kai has loved Anna since the beginning and has only pushed her away for her own safety.

Definitely a book worthy of being a part of the Sweet trilogy!

“And because I still feel like I haven't said enough - because I need to prove just how momentous this is for me, I bash down the barriers I've kept up for eight years, unleashing my aura for Anna to see. I shiver as I bare myself, and I feel Anna holding me tighter. I want her to see my love, like I saw hers once upon a time.
"Oh..." she whispers. "It's beautiful."
I shake my head. Only one thing deserves that word. "You're beautiful.”
