Review: Sweet Temptation by Wendy Higgins

Sweet Temptation (Sweet, #4)
Title: Sweet Temptation
Series: The Sweet Series, #4
Author: Wendy Higgins
Category: Fantasy/Romance/ Paranormal 
Genre: Young Adult
Rating: 4 stars out of 5 
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.

My Review

Being inside Kaidan's head was well... amazing! Definitely an experience I just loved and couldn't get enough of. Being inside his head really opened my eyes to just who Kaidan Rowe is and was. Yes, I was able to understand him, to learn who he was, throughout the series, but it’s different when it’s through someone else’s eyes. Getting scenes from the previous three books from his perspective made me understand why he acted the way he did, his thoughts, his feelings, his own personal struggles. That made me love him more. 
“I think Anna Whitt is bad for my health.” 

Without going into too much detail, let’s just say the transitions that I experienced while reading this book were so well done. I really saw the developmen in Kaidan, the transition and maturity, the growth, he went through. I felt Higgins did a beautiful job at his development. And I must say, he really did have some very dark moments. Moments that broke my heart and made me want to wrap him up and hug him. I loved getting his perspective on Anna as well, seeing her through his eyes. My heart fluttered so much while reading his one as well.

Though Higgins only gave us certain scenes from Kaidan’s POV out of the three books, it felt like I got a beautiful in-depth telling of his story. She planned everything out well and reviled things I wanted to see through his eyes and more.  I honestly just loved this book and I definitely recommend fans of both the series and Kai to pick this one up.

  3. Love it when an author gives you a book from the perspective of a character you want to know more of. Sounds like she pulled Kaidan's story off perfectly!

  5. This series sounds so good! I'm so glad you enjoyed this one, Magen, and that you got to see some of the things you wanted to through Kaidan's eyes. I also love that you came to understand him a little better reading from his POV. I always like getting a story from a different character's perspective, too. Beautiful review! *huuugs* <3
