Sweet Reckoning by Wendy Higgins

Sweet #3
Book Summary via Goodreads:
"It’s time. 
       Evil is running rampant and sweet Anna Whitt is its target. Nobody knows when or how the Dukes will strike, but Anna and her Nephilim allies will do anything necessary to rid the earth of the demons and their oppressive ways.
       The stakes are higher than ever, and Anna is determined that the love she feels will be her strength, not a liability. But trying to protect the ones she loves while running for her life and battling demonic forces proves to be perilous—especially as faces are changing and trust is fleeting. When the Duke of Lust sends Anna’s great love, Kaidan Rowe, to work against her, Anna must decide how much she’s prepared to risk.
       In the most sensual and fast-paced installment yet, Sweet Reckoning brings all the beloved Neph together one last time to fight for their freedom."

So, this book had me on the edge of my seat. This entire series was an unexpected surprise, from the cheesy cover design to the equally cheesy titles, at first I wasn't even sure what it was about. But after getting into the story, I found it to be a different and very interesting take on the fallen angel/nephilim genre that has been popular for the past few years.

The growth that Anna and particularly Kaidan go through is amazing. I gotta be honest, for the first couple books I wasn't 100% that he actually cared for Anna, but he really proved it in this book.

There was no part of this book that felt slow or boring, everything was fast paced and had a sense of urgency, because there was. The sacrifices they all made brought people I didn't expect together.

I loved Kai so much in this book, and I wish there was more than one of him... or that one of him existed. He proved me wrong in the theory that he was pulling a double agent move on Anna, and I am so so glad. I feel so bad for all the loses in the end.

The end was wrapped up all too nicely though, I know it was supposed to be difficult, but it seemed too easy. But I am glad that there was a happy ending to it all.

This is a great series, and I highly recommend it to everyone. I hope to read more of Ms. Higgins work in the future, she is a great writer.
