     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 swoon-worthy, 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.


I am so glad that I finally got around to reading this book. I love these characters, and Kaidan is one of my favorite characters ever. He is a very complex character, and his character growth is far more interesting to me than Anna's.

What I really loved most about this book, is you really get to see how he handles things. When I first read the main series, I wasn't fully convinced that Kaidan felt the way he did for Anna until about halfway through the second book. I was suspicious that he was tricking her. But in this book I got to read his struggle to do what he wanted over what was expected of him. He struggled with that through most of the series, and that was really interesting to read about.

There's not much I can say that isn't a spoiler since this is an extra book in the Sweet "trilogy". But one great thing about this extra book is that it doesn't feel like the story regurgitated but the pronoun being changed. Some parts are kind of the exact same scene, but it feels like a new scene.

This book is a really great addition to the series, and if you've read the rest of the trilogy I highly recommend reading this book.
