My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I've come to the conclusion that Kaidan Rowe is a lot of the reason that I love this series. As he's trying to stay away from Anna to keep her safe from the Dukes, he's missing for most of the first half of this sequel and it did impact my enjoyment of it. Anna is travelling with Kope to visit some of the Nephilim who they think will be on their side when the time comes to fulfil a prophecy spoken by Sister Ruth, the nun who was present at Anna's birth. Anna thinks Kaidan is no longer interested in her, and I was really hoping she wasn't going to turn to Kope for comfort.

At long last, Anna's dad gives her permission to travel to LA to speak with Kaidan and Blake. From this point on, my interest was peaked one hundred fold. I just couldn't put it down from here on out.

Anna and Kaidan are brilliant together. Whether they're arguing or making out, it's really enjoyable being with them. And things do get quite steamy.

I really like Anna. She's tough, but also really sweet, caring and extremely loving, and now that she's been trained to fight, she's kick ass too. And she can cook, a fact which manages to turn Kaidan on.

I enjoy the English slang in this series. It's something that's completely familiar to me in everyday life, but in the books that I usually read, it's quite unusual so I thought it was a nice change.

This series has some great secondary characters too. The twins Marna and Ginger, Blake, Patti and Anna's best friend Jay. For some reason, I never took to Kope, though it could have been that I always feared there was a chance that he'd get with Anna, even in the first book, Sweet Evil, they seemed to get a little cosy.

The Dukes are completely depraved and unremorseful. The way they treat the Neph is despicable, they have no regard for them whatsoever, not even their own off spring. And with threats they've made against Anna, Kaidan was right to be staying away from her. Now it seems things may be about to get even more dangerous for her.

I'm really looking forward to the third and final book in this series, Sweet Reckoning. It just can't come soon enough.

ounds like a great couple and that I would really like Kaidan as well.

How odd that I never managed to get through the first book! It sounds so wonderful when you review it. I really liked Anna, but thought Kaidan was awful and for some reason, the entire thing just didn't work for me. Perhaps I should try again? I don't get it, though, was the love triangle avoided?
Wonderful review, Suzanne!

I haven't read this series yet but I have heard such brilliant things about this book especially from the perspective of Kaidan! ;) I think I'm going to have to pick them up soon, they sound like something I will definitely enjoy. Lovely review Suzanne! :)

Suzanne (Parabooklover) said...

I was totally surprised by the depth of the first book. The Dukes are just vile. I really need to jump back in and read this book. I am anxious to see how the story continues. So happy to hear that it lived up to the hype.

Suzanne (Parabooklover) said...

Ahh I need to read the first book! It's been on my tbr for too long now. And I must meet Kaidan!

Suzanne (Parabooklover) said...

I have the first book on my shelf, so I am really happy about your rating Suzanne. I can't wait to dive into this series and meet Kaidan, he seems to be causing up quite a stir amongst bloggers! Another lovely review Suzanne! :)

Suzanne (Parabooklover) said...

I still need to read this sequel! I'm a little sad that Kaidan is missing for so long but hopefully that will push me to read faster. Great review! :)

Suzanne (Parabooklover) said...

I still haven't read this series but it's nice that there's no love triangle once Kaidan and Anna are away from each other. Just out of curiosity, how accurate is the English slang in this one, Suzanne?

Suzanne (Parabooklover) said...

I'm Irish, so fairly familiar with English slang and I found it accurate enough. Nothing out of place that I noticed :)

Suzanne (Parabooklover) said...

Thanks Sara. Kaidan is so worth the wait. Some pretty steamy scenes :)

Suzanne (Parabooklover) said...

Thanks Emma. I hope you get to them soon and enjoy them when you do :)

Thankfully, the love triangle is avoided Maja :)
