Review: Sweet Temptation by Wendy Higgins


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.


Kaidan Rowe is everything and so much more! Honestly it was a struggle to finish this book and know in my heart that this is the end of a series that has captivated my attention and heart over the past several weeks. I have been consumed and enthralled, I can’t get these characters out of my head. Sweet Temptation was no exception, Kai was everything I hoped he would be. Wendy just knows how to write a damn good male lead, and I’m not not talking about your typical high school boy, no, Wendy flawlessly blends sex-appeal, drama, self-loathing, and confidence into a character that has swept me off my feet. Kai is truly drop-dead phenomenal and I can’t seem to shake the hold he has on me.

It was so refreshing to see things from Kai’s perspective because throughout the series, I have called him numerous names for causing Anna pain but to see his internal battles were equally as hard had me sympathizing with him. This book satisfied my unanswered questions about some secondary characters and I was glad to get closure on them. The ending had me in tears, and I don’t know if its because the series is over or if it was just Kai being Kai and emotionally gutting me? I blame both, it was just perfection….Kai was just perfection, the end. Now if you will excuse me, I am off to go buy every single book by this author.
