LOVED this one! Which is a strong endorsement for the series, since it’s literally the entire Sweet Trilogy over again, only from Kaidan’s perspective instead of from Anna’s. As an author, this was a fabulous character study, getting into the mind of a bad boy through his character arc. Most of the time the main character is sympathetic from the start, so this was unique in that sense. But Kaidan was such a compelling character to begin with, and the Sweet trilogy itself (especially the dynamics between Kaidan and Anna) was so addictive that I plowed through this one in a few days, even though I already knew what was going to happen. I found myself anxious for what I knew was about to happen next, just so I could experience it through Kai’s eyes. It couldn’t have been easy for Higgins, a female former youth group leader, to write a foul-mouthed sex-obsessed 18 year old male–and she manages to make him seem so endearing!
My rating: *****
