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.

There was not one moment in the final book of The Sweet Series that I did not enjoy. From beginning to end the characters showed us what they were made of and fought with everything they had. I want to leave this as spoiler free as possible so I will just pour out some of my main thoughts and feelings.

The characters have grown SO much in just 3 books. The final book was the best of all. I loved how Anna and Kaidan are able to pull off their deception. I loved the way their relationship grew. I loved seeing the other cast of characters help and band together. The final showdown was nothing short of spectacular. It was everything I hoped it would be and there are a few shocking moments that left me with a huge grin on my face. There are a few heartbreaking moments in SWEET RECKONING but war never comes without loss.

The very end of SWEET RECKONING truly melted my heart. The characters have all been through so much and seeing that very last glimpse of them years past their troubles was just amazing. It was definitely what I would consider a happily ever after.

I gave it 5/5 stars
