Review: 5 Stars


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.

First Impressions

This book was AMAZING!!!!!!!! I'm pretty sure Wendy Higgins is my spirit animal. I love her to pieces, and this book just solidifies my love. I was so excited when I got this ARC that I might have squealed, a lot. Heck, I read the whole thing in only a few hours. I wish it had lasted longer, but I couldn't put it down! The book starts off really good. I have to say though, right off the bat, it is a lot more inappropriate than the series from Anna's point of view. You have been warned. Also, if you haven't read the series, it doesn't make a whole lot of sense. But for those who have, it's heaven.


I really loved being inside Kai's head. I understand his actions a lot better now. There were still some scenes I would to have liked to see, but what I got was amazing. We didn't see as much of Anna as I though we would, but that's okay. A lot of the book is within Kai's own head. We also get a lot more information into Kai's backstory that he doesn't necessarily tell Anna. I had to hide my eyes in a couple scenes because Kai's thoughts and actions were a tad inappropriate for me, but overall it was wonderful. I really loved getting to know one of the loves of my life a little better.


The writing was as amazing as ever! The novel was fast-paced and amazing. Also, it was almost five hundred pages. Five hundred pages of perfection. I love it when authors I love write long books. There's not much to say about the writing that I haven't said in other books. If you look at the tags on the sidebar and go to Wendy Higgins, you can find the reviews I've done of all her other books. So far, I have not been disappointed.


Most of this world the reader already knows. It takes place in our world. There are a couple locations that we haven't seen before, and they are fairly well described. Most of this novel does take place within Kai's head, which is why we don't get as much of the scenery, but we get a lot of that from Anna's POV.

Over all, and amazing book!!!!!! I can't wait to get my next Wendy Higgin's fix!
