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.



My Review: The best ending I have EVER READ IN MY LIFE! Seriously though, I can't believe I won't be getting anymore Anna or Kai ): I need my dose! 


Anna and Kai are together and so very happy. They are going to make the best of everything they can before the time comes. Right now, its nice for Anna to have some calm in her life. She just returned home and head to Jay's place to find that he and Veronica are no more because she is moving pretty far. Though things won't seem so bad for long, because pretty soon the twins step into the picture and things are in motion. 

Anna and Ginger go looking for her sister, who happens to be with Jay and they get into a pickle. I shouldn't say what, but I'll say it started to put things into motion. Soon everyone is meeting up. Ginger goes to find Blake, while her sister is with Jay, then Kai and Anna meet up and everything is going crazy and love is in the air! They have to be super extremely cautious right now. The Dukes can never get a word of this. EVER. Which really sucks because the whispers have been everywhere even more lately and are keeping tabs on Anna. She is soooo not in good terms with the Dukes, they all think her and her dad are traitors. Which they aren't wrong.....but aren't taking any real action without proof and making sure there is no way for Anna to fulfill the prophecy.

Know these lovely people they would come up with something to make it all work, and they DID. OMG it was the best thing EVER! I'm way too excited right now....

Anna and Kai tie the knot! Everything done in one day and not only does it show their love for each other, but it will help with this bond and staying pure to go along with the prophecy. I really loved reading that part of the book, I would go way into detail, but then I'd just end up writing the whole chapter out, and that wouldn't be fair. So just go dive into the book.  

Then I had another part of the book I enjoyed. The holiday meal, with everyone gathered and being so normal, it made you feel for them when they all seemed happy about it and yet scared because they don't want to be caught. Oh I so loved Patti's reaction when she find out about Kai and Anna, it was so sweet and not crazy at all! 

Then came the hard part for me......the ending. I knew the book was ending and you can just feel everything that is going on. I ached, felt, and cried for these characters. When it came to facing the Dukes and finally putting them in their place, so much had happened so fast. A really loving character was lost, thousands were given second chances and went to heaven, and after everything was said and done, it was all over. They were free to live their lives and decide what they were going to do with it. All couples did their thing. Anna and Kai had a beautiful ending....I really loved what they did to expand their family at the end. It all felt perfect and right.

And so I finished the book and I'm pretty sad it's all over. I really loved this world Wendy created and it couldn't have gotten any better. I can't wait to see what she creates next, and hope I fall into that world just as much.
