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.
I am still so surprised by how much I have enjoyed The Sweet Trilogy. I was so close to not giving this series a chance and I’m so happy that I stumbled upon the read-along of Sweet Evil that helped to ignite my love of this trilogy. In general, I kind of hate to review a series, especially the last book in a series, because I’m so worried that I may give something away. Without giving too much away, I can happily say that fans of The Sweet Trilogy should be very satisfied by this concluding novel. Sweet Reckoning provided exactly what I was looking in so many different areas. Some relationships that I was rooting for prosper until the final pages. New relationships are formed between characters I love. Sweet Reckoning is action-packed and suspenseful until the conclusion. I rarely stumble across books that I have a hard time putting down and I’m pleased to say that Sweet Reckoning was one such book. In fact I daresay that each book in the trilogy was nearly impossible for me to put down. There are some circumstances that were very sad that could have led to me not liking Sweet Reckoning, but what is great about Higgins’ writing is that she is really good about helping the reader to understand why things are happening the way that they are. All in all Sweet Reckoning was a great book and I think fans of The Sweet Trilogy won’t be disappointed.
If you haven’t yet started any of the books in The Sweet Trilogy I would definitely recommend that you check them out! Despite the cheesy covers this is a trilogy that I would like to have grace my bookshelves sometime in the near future.
