Sweet Peril by Wendy Higgins

Goodreads Summary:
Anna Whitt, the daughter of a guardian angel and a demon, promised herself she’d never do the work of her father—polluting souls. She’d been naive to make such a vow. She’d been naive about a lot of things. 

Haunted by demon whisperers, Anna does whatever she can to survive, even if it means embracing her dark side and earning an unwanted reputation as her school’s party girl. Her life has never looked more bleak. And all the while there’s Kaidan Rowe, son of the Duke of Lust, plaguing her heart and mind.

When an unexpected lost message from the angels surfaces, Anna finds herself traveling the globe with Kopano, son of Wrath, in an attempt to gain support of fellow Nephilim and give them hope for the first time. It soon becomes clear that whatever freedoms Anna and the rest of the Neph are hoping to win will not be gained without a fight. Until then, Anna and Kaidan must put aside the issues between them, overcome the steamiest of temptations yet, and face the ultimate question: is loving someone worth risking their life?

My Review:
I was so excited for this book. I loved Sweet Evil. Anna has grown since we last saw her. She is working but, only like half way. She doesn't like it. She wants to be different. Unfortunately things with her and Kai are stressed and we don't see as much of them in this book. Things are changing and a prophecy is revealed and Anna is right in the middle of it. This leads to her and her Dad trying to find allies. Other Neph who don't like working and want things to change. We get to see a lot of other characters in this book, meet some new Neph. Anna has to recruit, with Kopano, all over the world. It's not as easy as it sounds either. They run into a few problems and the Duke's are not stupid. Not everyone will survive this. And judging by the prophecy the worst is yet to come. Will Anna and her friends find enough people to help? Will her and Kai ever get a chance to be together? 

There is a lot of action going on in this book. We get to learn a lot about the new people and what is going on in the Neph world. The book sets up the next book pretty well. I have no idea what is going to happen in the next book. I have really high hopes for these guys. It's going to be pretty hard to get a happy ending here. 

Kopano was another potential love interest in this one. I liked him in book 1 but, I was already in love with Kai so...Anna is dealing with the heart ache of losing Kai. This for her just don't seem to be getting better. Her and Kopano are great friends together. He is keeping a secret from Anna though. One that changes things. Things between them cross the friend line and it leaves them kind of confused about each other. It's also not great when Kai finds out. 

It's hard to be in love with the son of Lust. Given his urges and job. Anna has a hard time being shut down by him and hearing that they can't be together. It's kind of heart wrenching to read about actually. There are a few hot moments though between them! This can lead to bad things considering Anna needs her virtue and all. Things for these two will never be easy and they may never truly 100% get to be with each other. I am so curious to see where it's going to go though!
