Best Series Blog Hop hosted by Cuddlebuggery


Welcome to Jenuine Cupcakes
Thank you Cuddlebuggery for organizing this Best Series Blog Hop!

*cupcakes for everyone*

I have quite a few series that I love but the one I chose to spotlight is
The Sweet Series by Wendy Higgins. 
Why? Because it's unique, entertaining and jammed packed full of awesome!




Sweet Evil (The Sweet Trilogy, #1)Sweet Evil (Book 1)

Embrace the Forbidden

What if there were teens whose lives literally depended on being bad influences?

This is the reality for sons and daughters of fallen angels.

Tenderhearted Southern girl Anna Whitt was born with the sixth sense to see and feel emotions of other people. She's aware of a struggle within herself, an inexplicable pull toward danger, but Anna, the ultimate good girl, has always had the advantage of her angel side to balance the darkness within. It isn't until she turns sixteen and meets the alluring Kaidan Rowe that she discovers her terrifying heritage and her willpower is put to the test. He's the boy your daddy warned you about. If only someone had warned Anna.

Forced to face her destiny, will Anna embrace her halo or her horns?


I read this book in one day. Try as I might, I could not put it down, forcing my family into "survival" mode. "You're gonna have to fix yourself something to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner if you hope to survive until morning because MOM IS READING."
Totally worth it though.

Especially since I imagine Kaidan looks like this...







Sweet Peril (The Sweet Trilogy, #2)Sweet Peril (Book 2)
Author: Wendy Higgins
Publication: April 30, 2013
Amazon | B&N

"All things are possible."

Anna Whitt, the daughter of a guardian angel and a demon, promised herself she’d never do the work of her father—polluting souls. She’d been naive to make such a vow. She’d been naive about a lot of things.

Haunted by demon whisperers, Anna does whatever she can to survive, even if it means embracing her dark side and earning an unwanted reputation as her school’s party girl. Her life has never looked more bleak. And all the while there’s Kaidan Rowe, son of the Duke of Lust, plaguing her heart and mind.

When an unexpected lost message from the angels surfaces, Anna finds herself traveling the globe with Kopano, son of Wrath, in an attempt to gain support of fellow Nephilim and give them hope for the first time. It soon becomes clear that whatever freedoms Anna and the rest of the Neph are hoping to win will not be gained without a fight. Until then, Anna and Kaidan must put aside the issues between them, overcome the steamiest of temptations yet, and face the ultimate question: is loving someone worth risking their life?


Let me just say, that I'm a die-hard Kaidanite, but Kopano made me feel all the feels in Sweet Peril. So much so, I decided to adapt a song for him...

To the tune of "Call Me Maybe".

*clears throat*

I threw a wish in the well
Don't ask me, I'll never tell
I looked to you, as it fell
And now I smell, car-a-mel

I'd trade my Neph for a wish
Auras and plagues for a kiss
I wasn't looking for this
But now we're wre-stl-ing.

Your prayer was holding
Head bowed skin was showing
Hot night wind was blowing
Where you think you're going Kope
 
Hey, I just met you
And this is crazy
But I am freezing
So warm me, maybe 
 
It's hard to look right, at you Kope
But I am freezing
So warm me, maybe
 
You're welcome. I'm available for parties, book signings and Sunday dinners. *just kidding*



Sweet Reckoning (The Sweet Trilogy, #3)Sweet Reckoning (Book 3)
Author: Wendy Higgins
Publication: April 29, 2014
Amazon | B&N

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.



This is one of the BEST series ending books I've read! Seriously though, it's completely worth all of the edge-of-your-seat, heart-in-your-throat, OHMIGAW THIS BOOK BE TRYIN' TO KILL ME!, stress.

Kai agrees with me, don't you, Kai?
