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?

WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS FROM SWEET EVIL. If you have not read Sweet Evil, I’d consider not reading this.

After the very close call at the Summit, Anna and Kaidan are forced to go separate ways. Anna in Sweet Evil was very innocent, but in Sweet Peril she’s the life of the party. But, seeing as she’s the Daughter of Belial (Duke of drugs and alcohol) she has to keep up her act and make people drink. She is visited by a character and has been told what she is supposed to do. She is to travel around around the world with Kopano (Kope for short) collecting allies when the time is right. Kaidan is almost absent for the majority of the book seeing as he’s across the United States, but after the first half of the book he is brought back in FULL FORCE.

We were introduced to some great new characters and got to see some of the previous characters in Sweet Evil develop more. We didn’t get to see much of Jay and Veronica though. The most prominent character that we see is Kope.

my thoughts 2

I read this along with a friend from BookTube, Suna @ kiwilover25. For the last half of the book I was constantly tweeting her on Twitter about the book and absolutely fangirling hardcore. I had a VERY hard time putting this book down. If you don’t count Friday (which I didn’t read at all), it only took me 2 days to read this book. I read over 3/4’s of the book yesterday.

I would consider picking a day where you don’t have much planned to read this book. I can promise you might have a hard time putting the book down like I did.

I don’t think I’ve fangirled that hard over a book in a LONG time. This is DEFINITELY one of my all time favorite series hands down. It’s VERY close to the Twilight Saga and The Hunger Games trilogy. I can not stress how much I adored this book. I’m really glad Suna talked me into reading this together because had she not have said anything I would have pushed the book back. I now have to wait 4 more months to see Kaidan, which really stinks because he’s on the VERY tip top of my list of fictional boyfriends. If you thought he was hot in Sweet Evil, oh man. Be ready for some fangirling. He’s extremely hot in Sweet Peril!

favorite quotes

“I love you,” I whispered.

“I’ve loved you longer,” he said.”


“Ready to s-snuggle?” he asked Kaidan, a slight clatter in his voice. Only Blake could joke on a night like this and get away with it.
Kaidan shook his head and undressed down to his boxers, too, the tension finally shedding away from his frame. “I swear, mate. If I feel something poke me in the back. . .”
Blake’s laugh was dry. “I’m pretty sure my junk froze off, man, so don’t worry.”


“I was more myself with you during those three days than I’ve ever been with anyone in my life. It’d be easier if I could be fake with you, but you bring out everything in me, little Ann. All of it.”


“My girlfriend is a party girl angel who can kick some arse and cook.”
