Anna Whitt, the daughter of a guardian angel and a demon, promised herself she’d never do the work of her father—polluting souls. She’d been naive to make such a vow. She’d been naive about a lot of things.
Haunted by demon whisperers, Anna does whatever she can to survive, even if it means embracing her dark side and earning an unwanted reputation as her school’s party girl. Her life has never looked more bleak. And all the while there’s Kaidan Rowe, son of the Duke of Lust, plaguing her heart and mind.
When an unexpected lost message from the angels surfaces, Anna finds herself traveling the globe with Kopano, son of Wrath, in an attempt to gain support of fellow Nephilim and give them hope for the first time. It soon becomes clear that whatever freedoms Anna and the rest of the Neph are hoping to win will not be gained without a fight. Until then, Anna and Kaidan must put aside the issues between them, overcome the steamiest of temptations yet, and face the ultimate question: is loving someone worth risking their life?

Holy. Mother. of. Heavens.
I’m officially addicted to this series. I sigh for Kai. I love Kaidan Rowe. This hot fallen angel drummer is absolutely swoon worthy. I have a new guilty pleasure and I feel so dreamy. I’m such a hopeless romantic.
Anyways, Sweet Peril is a great sequel. Anna becomes the good-girl-gone-bad by partying and drinking to please the demon whisperers because it’s one way to survive. As a daughter of Substance abuse, she has to work by promoting the sins to people. It’s also a way of not to think Kaidan Rowe but she couldn’t get him out of her mind. She received a message/prophecy from an angel that the fallen angels had a second chance. It’s like building an army against the Dukes. To achieve that, she needs trusted allies. She travels with Kopano to find other Nephilims who can support them in the rebellion. It is very a risky, difficult task but Anna must do this in order to get freedom from everything. (So she could love Kaidan freely without worrying demon whisperers & The Dukes)
I love how it focuses more on the conflict of the story than the romance aspect. Not that there is no romance in this book. I love how it introduces us to other characters like Kopano, Blake, Zania, Flynn, Ginger & Marna. etc. Emphasizing their characters gives us an opportunity to getting to know their backgrounds and importance of their roles. There are parts that we might missed Kai, but it’s really worth the wait. Hahaha! Patience is all you need. 😉
I really like Anna’s character development on this book. She’s more confident, mature and got the angst. Of course we will not forget Kaidan and Anna’s love story. There’s a little love triangle in this book, but that’s only temporary of course. I must say the love story between them is steamier than the first installment. THAT KITCHEN SCENE. ALL THE COOKING. THE BROWNIES OH.MY.GOD. Steamy. Steamy. Steamy. Kaidan is more swoon worthy. He’s so sweet, loving, caring, hot and romantic guy. Shizzzzzzzz!!
Overall, I love this and I can’t wait to read the next one. I NEED MORE KAIDAN!
