This swoonworthy, romantic companion novel to Wendy Higgins's New York Times bestselling Sweet Evil series is told from irresistible bad-boy Kaidan's point of view. Readers will love getting inside Kaidan's head, especially fans of the Divergent series by Veronica Roth, the Selection series by Kiera Cass, and Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire.

When bad-boy drummer Kaidan Rowe encounters good girl Anna Whitt, the girl chosen to vanquish the demons from earth, he can't stop thinking about her. The Nephilim son of the Duke of Lust, Kaidan tries to help Anna embrace a life of sin, but she gradually helps him see that he's meant to do more with his life. Their relationship is as tortured as it is passionate, for Nephilim are forbidden to fall in love. But as hard as they may try to obey, Kai can't seem to stay away from Anna, nor Anna from Kai.

Full of chemistry and high-stakes drama, this companion book is darker, hotter, and completely satisfying.

One of my favorites. In fact I have struggled to find new books since reading these. I am 25 so finding books for my age range is difficult. Teen novels are too PG and yet I’m not interested in reading fully adult novels

4.3 stars! A whole book about Kaidan Rowe! I loved that Kaidan's thoughts and feelings were mentioned as I used wonder what he was thinking throughout the trilogy. Kaidan's point of view was very different from Anna's, but it was still a wonderful and insightful read. Definitely a must read for fans of the trilogy!

I really loved this series and I enjoy reading the male POVS very much. This was awesome to get inside Kaiden's head and see how much he truly loved Anna instead of just seeing him constantly pushing her away. I'm sorry, I don't care if she was suppose to be a "nice girl", I really didn't like the other Anna. Ha! I was so mad at Kaiden for that. This was such a great story and love the author's writing style. Liked the message that no matter your past, we are all allowed redemption. If you enjoyed the Sweet Evil trilogy, this is a definite must read.

This book was a condensed version of the Trilogy seen through Kai's eyes. I've been looking forward to reading this book since I first heard about it. I didn't know how much reading his point of view would really mean for the trilogy as a whole until I read it though. It's completely necessary. This is already one of my favorite series, and getting Kai's viewpoint and now knowing what he was doing when Anna wasn't around added so much depth to this story.

Amazing series
jcsbookhaven More than 1 year ago
This one is a companion book told from the POV of Kaidan Rowe. It's his view of the entire 3 books in the series all rolled into this one. This is a great treat for those that have already read the series. If you enjoy getting the same experience through another pair of eyes, it's definitely worth it. His brain is pretty much the opposite of our girl Anna. Her's is all Southern sweet charm and his are the British dirty grit. His thoughts are much, much more naughty. It's also fun to get to see experiences that happened when Anna was nowhere around. During quite a bit of the trilogy they were apart, so there are quite a few new scenes that were never covered in the trilogy.

I call this book Kaidan is Sexy because Sweet Temptation does it no justice. It is always interesting to see the other side of stories. In the vein of Jamie McGuire's Walking Disaster, or Christine Zoldenz's Scars and Songs, Wendy Higgins has given us the guy perspective of her series. Sometimes, like in the instance of Travis Maddox, it is very hard to reconcile the guy the heroine saw and fell in love with and the dude in his own book. Travis is not charming in Walking Disaster, he's rather skeevy. I couldn't like him as he was in his own tale; although it was a perfect example of TWO accounts being told of one story. But Kaidan Rowe is relatable and easy to love in Sweet Temptation as he was to Anna. His weaknesses and darkness becomes apparent while keeping him palatable, and desirable even. I am still in love with this lust puppy after seeing the world through his eyes. Kaidan is Sexy starts out at a different point than Anna's story; it gives clear view of Kaidan's life and unhappiness. He is empty and on auto-pilot, life is happening to him and he's powerless to do anything about it because he's owned body and soul. The removal he feels from the physical act of passion makes him feel meaningless, it is his job not something he feels for his own. When he sees Anna he is confused and paranoid because the many machinations of the Dukes, his father in particularly; he is used to being tested and watched. Kaidan sees an anomaly like Anna with a fair amount of skepticism. However this innocent girl kicks starts a curiosity that fuels him like nothing before, not even music has moved him in such a way. He can't let her go, and yet he doesn't want anything to do with her. The conflict within Kaidan is expertly handled and you feel for him. You can identify with what is in his heart. As a matter of fact, I adored the fact that the struggles and realities in this were realistically framed in a way other novels with this sort of POV swap have failed. The sensibility of the characters emotions and frame of situations is on firm foundation. The structure of the story remains the same, it's not an alternate perception, it expands on the overall arc. Sweet Temptation is a compact telling of all three novels of Anna's adventure. What makes this work successfully isn't necessarily the insight into Kai's journey, but rather how well Wendy knows all of her characters. It serves the narrative that she is giving the in depth background regarding all the Nephilim friends and Dukes. It is the richness of all the interactions and her own understanding of her cast that gives clarity to the reader. Anna's view of the nephilim and Kaidan's growing up with them show the fullness of the author's background knowledge of all those characters she writes. Anna sees nothing but hope and love because of who she is. Kaidan sees things more darkly, he's grown up in the dark world of the Duke's. He's fatalistic because he has never considered anything other than what his life is. There has never been innocence in his life until Anna. Wendy is approaching those realities individually for the best storycrafting. Another item that is better understood in Sweet Temptation is the passage in time. With the separation of the series from book to book it's easy to forget that years are passing. Since Sweet Temptation is condensed telling of the three books it's easy to understand the full scope of events. I became very aware that Anna was no longer a young girl and had g

Sinfully Delicious Addition to The Sweet Series I LUV'D being in Kai's head and getting the chance to see the whole series from his point of view, LUVED IT! The odds are stacked against him from the start. Sure, he makes his fair share of mistakes. Who doesn't? But after meeting Anna, Kai sees that good really does exist, it can triumph over evil and hope is not lost. The most important lesson he learns though is, love really can transform you. If you let it. That epilogue though...I cried when I read it from Anna's POV in Sweet Reckoning, but seeing it from Kai's destroyed my feels in the best way possible. "Lust is the groveling cousin of love. It's the house made of straw and sticks. It cannot compare."
