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.

my thoughts 2

Couldn’t have asked for a better ending, it was perfect! I adore this trilogy so much and I’m sad to see it go. But I love getting to know and love a bunch of these characters! I did shed some happy and sad tears while reading.

I won’t give a synopsis since this is the final book and not everyone has read this trilogy yet.

The action and suspense kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time while reading. The book immediately takes off where Sweet Peril left off and does not give you time to think “oh gosh, this is the last book”. No, it hits the ground running and not letting you stop for a break. I had a very difficult time putting it down.

Anna has become a favorite character of mine. She is so much like I am as a person and over the course of the trilogy, she has become such a strong woman. Of all characters and books I’ve read, Anna is the most relatable to me and my most loved character. Kaidan on the other hand is one of my all time favorite book boyfriends. Dear gosh, that man. Complete bad boy package and a complete sweetheart! I adore his character and how much he has changed as well. When we first see Kaidan, he’s not exactly someone you want to deal with. His dad is the Duke of Adultery, so with that said, you may not like what happens the next morning. But, oh boy did that completely change!!

I adored all the Neph that Anna became close to: Marna, Ginger, Blake, Kope, Z, and her mortal friend, Jay. Of course, I loved her step-mother, Patti as well. I adored this whole family and could definitely consider them one. This is definitely a trilogy I’ll never forget and will always have a special place in my heart.

Fantastic trilogy, recommend to anyone!
