Swoon Thursday ~ 8/27/15

The fabulous girls over at YA Bound created this super HOT meme.  Here's how it works.

From the book you’re currently reading, or one you just finished, tell us what made you SWOON. What got your heart pounding, your skin tingling, and your stomach fluttering.

Shout it out on Twitter with the hashtag #YABound, post it here in the comments, or grab the adorable button above and share it on your blog! I want to know & so do the chicks at YABound!

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—sweet, smart, feisty, and inexplicably good—the one girl seemingly immune to his charms. The daughter of a guardian angel and a fallen one, she has a certain power over him, one that makes him wish for more than he could ever deserve. 

Determined to save all the Neph from their dark lives as the influencers of sin, Anna joins forces with Kaidan to overcome the demons’ 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 acclaimed Sweet Evil series from New York Times bestselling author Wendy Higgins, told from the perspective of the irresistibly sexy and mysterious Kaidan Rowe, gives readers revealing insights into his struggle, his intense connection to Anna, and most of all, the true emotions that drive him.

Author Note:
Sweet Temptation will encompass the entire trilogy in a condensed version, beginning with Kai's life before he met Anna, and taking readers through the epilogue of Sweet Reckoning. Sweet Temptation is a companion novel, not meant to be a stand alone story. It will definitely be a richer experience for those who have read the original trilogy.


I hone in on the spot under her ear, and my desperate lips finally touch her...this is my heaven.  Her neck is heated, and she lifts her chin, allowing me to kiss further.  Her body slightly twists, angling toward me.  I open my mouth, dragging my tongue along the silk and salt and sweetness of her.  Up to her jaw.  And then she's turning, her hands are in my hair, and she's leading my mouth to her.  (Page 76-77 of the ARC)

Oh Kai! So love you.  Love this book.  So dang good. 

That's our swoon for this week! What do you think? Do you have a swoon to share? Leave us a comment!

  3. Ahh Kai! I adore him so. Cant wait to read this one!

  4. You know I read the first book a long time ago and it didn't really, totally grab me. I felt there was something lacking, mostly with the main girl's character, I think it was that she was too naive. Do the sequels get better? This series is very highly praised.

    1. Anna was raised that way on purpose. Some of that leaves her as the series continues because she is exposed to a lot of evils. I think she becomes more rounded but I do believe she was represented that way to begin with for a purpose. I love this series. AND I'm really enjoying this version as I'm in Kai's head. A much darker place than Anna's.

  5. I have this on hold at the library but they haven't got it in yet. Can't wait to read it. Thanks for sharing the swoon.

    1. It doesn't release until 9/8. Not too much longer to wait.

  6. Oh man, I need this book!! I don't think it releases in the UK until October so still a while to go... Thanks so much for sharing this!
