Review: Sweet Temptation by Wendy Higgins

Sweet Temptation by Wendy HigginsSynopsis:

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—smart, feisty, and inexplicably good—the one girl seemingly immune to his charms. The daughter of a guardian angel and a fallen one, she makes him wish for more than he could ever deserve.

Determined to save all the Neph from their dark lives, Anna joins forces with Kaidan to overcome the Dukes’ oppressive ways. In the light of her affections, Kaidan must undergo his toughest test of all, a battle of the heart.

Sensual and swoonworthy, this companion volume to the Sweet Evil series, told from the perspective of the mysterious Kaidan Rowe, gives readers revealing insights into the true emotions that drive him.

Favorite Lines:

“When I’m with her I feel…different. Lighter or some shit.”

“Look at me, lovely Anna.”

“That causes some idiotic thing inside my chest to swell and strengthen. I think Anna Whitt is bad for my health.”

“My sweet and lovely little Anna. This is good-bye.”

“Don’t go. Don’t bloody leave me. Throw your arms around me. I don’t care if you smear my face with paint, Anna. Tell me you love me. Show me you still want me. Torture me a bit more. Oh, God…”

My Opinion:

Sweet Temptation is a companion novel in the Sweet series. It is from Kaidan’s point of view and goes through all three books from his perspective. Honestly, it was so adorable to watch Kaidan develop feelings for Anna and try to talk himself out of them by saying it’s for his job. This whole book had me smirking and internally shrieking because it turns out Kaidan was developing feelings for Anna when we, as readers, were unaware from Anna’s point of view in the other books. This book made my heart hurt with how sweet Kai was and how much he truly cared for Ann. It was a whole different level than I originally thought… a whole better level.

The only thing that was kind of confusing was following some of the events in this book because it’s from Kai’s point of view and it’s technically book 4 in the series, so it was kind of confusing to have to recall some things that happened in the other books that were in Ann’s point of view. That being said, I enjoyed Kai’s POV nonetheless.


This novel was the perfect unofficial ending to the series. I say unofficial because the series already ended and this was just a bonus book. It was most definitely a bonus and I am so, very happy that Higgins graced us with its existence.
