Sweet Peril ARC Time!!!

(Update: Contest is over, winners to be announced soon! Sorry, late entries via email cannot be accepted.)

Yay, yay, YAY!!!  It's ARC time!  (Advanced Review Copy)

Sweet Peril is my 2nd book, the sequel to Sweet Evil.  I will be receiving my ARCs this upcoming week, and I want to share the pre-release love!

For those of you who aren't familiar, some publishers, like HarperTeen, print galley proof copies, or unedited copies of the books to send out for pre-publication reviews.  These copies are usually a hot mess since they're printed in the middle of the editing process - lots of errors, etc.  It's sort of like seeing a frazzled bride who's only halfway through getting ready for her big moment.  Anyhoo, I only get a handful of ARCs.  The ones I get are for my family members and giveaways.  (Serious reviewers can contact me via email with questions about how to request one from the publisher - wendyhigginswrites at gmail dot com.)

Along with the THREE ARCs I'm giving away, Vivian Hebel of HebelDesign has offered to giveaway a turquoise heart necklace, inspired by the one Kai gave Anna in Sweet Evil!!!  YAY!  She is seriously an awesome designer.  Check out her website, which is all jewelry and custom-made cool stuff inspired by YA novels! This Sweet Evil necklace is available there for purchase, along with custom quote bookmarks (they're so cool - they have dangly pieces of turquoise and a tiny wing, with any quote from the book that you want!)

What's Up for Grabs:

~ 2 signed ARCs of Sweet Peril for US readers

~ 1 signed ARC of Sweet Peril for an International reader

~ 1 Turquoise necklace for an International winner

How to Enter:

~ Enter by commenting on this blog post and answering at least one of the following questions:

          - What song makes you think of Sweet Evil?
          - What song can you imagine appearing on Kai's Road Trip Playlist?
          - What actor/actresses can you picture playing Kai & Anna?
          - If you haven't read Sweet Evil yet (which I suggest you do before cracking open Sweet Peril)  
            tell us what your favorite book or series is.  :)
~ Each person will get one entry (even if  you comment more than once). Please be honest and do not enter under multiple accounts.

~ Anonymous comments cannot be counted, sorry. (if you're having a hard time commenting, please email me)

~ Please say in your comment if you are in the US or International, and tell us your first name if it's not the same as your username.

~ I'm doing a quick turnaround with this contest because I really want to get these ARCs out right away, so this contest will run for four days.  You have until noon, eastern US time, on Tuesday, January 29th to enter.  Winners will be announced that evening.

*     *     *

And now for some bonus fun...
Here's an extra HOTT teaser for you, to celebrate the arrival of ARCs. 
Enjoy. :)

*     *     *

His mouth moved down my neck, slow, like a playful whisper. At the base of my throat I felt his warm tongue tasting me. I wove my fingers into his hair. When he raised his face to mine, our quickened breaths mingled. I took in the sweetness of citrusy pheromones, lifted off him by the breeze. Even sitting, it made me dizzy.
I tried to pull him, to close the gap between us, but he resisted.
“Tell me you want it,” he whispered against my mouth, transforming me into a puddle of desire. He groaned, a deep sound of pleasure and need, probably smelling the pheromones my own body expelled.

*     *     *

You know I love you guys, right?   I love you, man!   *Big hugs*

(Because of the volume of comments, you have to click "Load more" to see them all.)

Hey guys, the giveaway is officially closed to comments.  I will try my very best to have the winner announcement posted tonight or tomorrow morning!!!  Thank you all so much!  iTunes will be getting a visit from me soon, because I NEED all of these songs on my playlist now!  (Tuesday, Jan 29, 12:08PM)

  1. Honestly the some that makes me think of the book is Marilyn Manson- sweet dreams. I know it's a cover but the dark feel really makes me think of the neph world Anna is brought into and the lyrics kinda add to that love at the risk thing
    Name: Karis

  2. This comment has been removed by the author.

  3. Always Gonna Be You by Kenny Chesney & So What Does It All Mean? by West, Gould, & Fitzgerald remind me of Kai & Anna. Thanks so much for the giveaway!! And the teasers! Wow!! You know you're killing us here right? ;-)

    (US entry)

  4. Thank you for the giveaway, Wendy!

    -What song makes you think of Sweet Evil?
    Ed Sheeran - Kiss Me... It makes me think of the first very hot bedroom scene.

    [international; first name: Nora]

  5. What song makes you think of Sweet Evil?

    For me it's Figure 8 by Ellie Goulding. I love the song, it's intense, kind of like Anna & Kai's relationship.

    INTERNATIONAL represent! XD

  6. OH! I have a road trip song: "Volcano" , the Phillip Phillips version. It's so angsty and steamy, but not its also subtle.
    Thanks, Wendy!

    Andrea / US

  7. The song i always picture for the road trip is Hallelujah by Bon Jovi. I think it would be a perfect fit for the trip and it holds lots of temptation in the lyrics and yet still manages to be beautiful. I think Anna would be shocked Kai had this on his iPod. I am so thrilled over this book i cannot wait for the second!!! (United States)

  8. This comment has been removed by the author.

  9. When I think of the book, I imagine the song LIke a Virgin by Madonna playing.


  10. First of all, GAHHHHH! THAT TEASER! Now I think I need a cold shower! Hahahaha!

    What song makes me think of Sweet Evil? Definitely Sexylove by Ne-yo ;)

    Ida Bosita, International(Philippines)

  11. ahhhhhh..........Wendy u hate us D': i can't waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaait!!!!! anymooooooooooore!! But thanks for the awesome teaser!! :D

  12. I can totally see Liam Hemsworth as Kaidan and Julliane Hough as Anna. That would be a sweet movie. So looking forward to the continuation of this story.

  13. When I read Sweet Evil I kept hearing one song in my head, and that was Sweet Nothing by Florence Welch and Calvin Harris.
    "So I put my faith in something unknown
    I'm living on such sweet nothing
    But I'm trying to hope with nothing to hold
    I'm living on such sweet nothing
    And it's hard to learn
    And it's hard to love
    When you're giving me such sweet nothing"
    Makes me think of Anna and Kai's relationship. And the heartbreaking end of Sweet Evil.
    Love you and your books!
    International (Sweden)!

  14. What song makes you think of Sweet Evil? I'd probably say Never Let Me Go by Florence and the Machine. It's such an emotional song with a deep meaning and the words, meaning, emotion and melody fit for Anna and Kai's relationship perfectly. Eeeek! I'm so excited for this book. And that teaser *sigh*. Love yaaaa!!!!

    Siiri (@ Little Pieces of Imagination) /INTL

  15. The song that kind of reminds me of Sweet Evil is "What do you want from me" by Adam Lambert <3

    The song is about a person who experience lots of things, often got hurt by the ones he love, and wonders, what do they really want from him. I think it could be relatable to Anna. She got this amazing ability, one that could label her as a freak. Then there is Kaidan, who she is inexplicably drawn to, n the duty of her as the daughter of the Duke of abusive substances, so the readers (well, me :D) feels like what do they want her to become? Can she live up to those expectations? She is trying her best but in the end, will it be enough? And she's trying so hard not to let anyone down - her father, step-mother, mother and Kaidan - that it might mess her up. And since the song is actually about not giving up on a loved one, It suites her and Kaidan. But i think the song might be more perfect if it's on Kaidan point of view :D Because there are a few lines that seems as if Kaidan is saying to her :

    " Yeah, it's plain to see, That baby you're beautiful
    and it's nothing wrong with you
    It's me, I'm a freak, yeah
    But thanks for lovin' me 'cause you're doing it perfectly "

    I think this song is perfect for them 8D

    International~ - Malaysia

  16. Ok, since I apparently can't follow directions, I'm redoing this:) One question....

    The song that reminds me of Sweet Evil is Bad Influence by P!nk. Any song that says "I'm the instigator of underwear" is all about Kai. And Anna's in there too!

    I am in the frigid Midwest of the United States. Brrrrr.....

  17. OMG! I listen to "Jar of Hearts" by Christina Perri. I think it totally captures Anna's feelings for Kai! I'm seriously DYING for this book!!
    THANKS WENDY YOUR THE BEST! plus, I love your pinterest stuff and hints!
    NAME: MAYA (Sunny/ KitKat) ^_^

  18. Hey Wendy! I am a US READER and absolutely love Kaina! All that sexual tension and love just pour out and surround every page.

    If i had to pick actors for Kai and Ana i would choose Brie Larson, Maggie Grace, or myself for Ana since i am an aspiring actress (lol jk. And for tough as that may be i would go with either Freddie Stroma, Shia LaBeouf, or Liam Hemsworth. Shia had the sexy Badboy thing going, Liam and Freddie have the accents, but Freddie can sing. All however are super hot.

    Thanks for the giveaway opportunity and the delicious teaser! Fingers crossed for a win!!

  19. I am an international fan, and when I think of Sweet Evil the song Sweet Dreams by eurythmics pops into my head!!

  20. Oh wow, what a teaser!

    As for a song for KAidan's playlist for the road trip I'd have to go for State of Love And Trust by Pearl Jam or anything by Linkin Park, that seems fitting for Kai's fight with himself!

    Also, Wendy thank you so much for making this available for us international fans too!!

  21. This comment has been removed by a blog administrator.

  22. The actress I'd see playing Anna is Ashley Benson, and for Kai, Sam Claflin.

    I'm in the US, and my name is Amber! :D

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  23. I have to confess something. I haven't actually read Sweet Evil yet. I know what your thinking. How?! I do have it I just a tonne of other books to read as well. I promise though I will be getting to it very soon! It sounds unbelievable!
    My favourite series? Well it's hard to name just one! There are so many. But I love the TMI series by Cassandra Clare and the Lux series by JLA.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    Name: Yvonne
    International - Ireland

  24. Thank you for an international giveaway! :)

    My favourite series is Vampire Academy, but I'm really looking forward to read the rest of your series!

    Anne-Marie, international

  25. A song that reminds me of Sweet Evil is Move Along by The All-American Rejects. I think the chorus really relates to the book, and I now think of Sweet Evil every time I listen to it!
    Thank you so much for the giveaway, Wendy!
    I'm international :)

  26. What song makes you think of Sweet Evil?- Loose Control by House of Heroes because I feel like all the characters feel they're always perched on the edge.

    So excited for these books!


  27. A actress for Anna: Claire Holt
    A Actor for Kai: Joseph Morgan

    I can't wait for Sweet Peril!

    United States

  28. What song makes you think of Sweet Evil? Lana Del Ray - Gods and Monsters. When I first heard this song straight away I thought about Anna <3

    Name: Heather
    Internatioal - England

  29. Oh! That teaster was just cruel!

    My favorite series right now is Alice in Zombieland (which isn't really a series yet...) or maybe the Unearthly trilogy by Cynthia Hand.


  30. After your teaser, I know I need to read Sweet Evil! My favorite authors are Jennifer L. Armentrout and Cassandra Clare. Thanks for the contest. It is cold in Iowa; sounds like your books will heat life up.

  31. Well ever since I saw the name a long time ago, I always sing in my head, "sweet dreams are made of this" and I just can't stop :) my favorite series is Twilight <3 my name is Kellee, I'm in the US, and my email is

  32. - What actor/actresses can you picture playing Kai & Anna?
    Matt Lanter and Taylor Momsen

    Name: Viviane Faria
    International (Brazil)

  33. This comment has been removed by the author.

  34. The song that makes me think of Sweet Evil is Pretty Girl by Sugarcult. Not your typical song, but if you listen to the lyrics you can def thinks "this song was made for this book" (even though it came out like 10 years ago)
    The song I imagine on Kai's roadtrip play list is Sweet Dreams. It just seems fitting!
    For Kai I think a good actor for him would be (other than Wade) is Drew Doyon. And for Anna, I really like is Anna Sophia Robb.
    I've made it well known how much I love Sweet Evil, after that, I think The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer and the Evolution of Mara Dyer.

    This is AWESOME Wendy! Really can't wait to read this one!

    -Eren (US)

  35. Songs that reminds me of Sweet Evil is

    DRumming song by Florence and the Machine

    (Overall )

    For some reason Off I Go by Greg Laswell( also reminds me of Sweet Evil I don't know why.



  36. I pictured Andrew Garfield as Kai, and Teresa Palmer as Anna. Sweet Evil is one of my top ten favorites!
    Name: Aly Konop
    US reader

  37. Wendy this giveaway is awesome!! One song that reminded me of the part when Anna gets back from the trip and is in that dark, depressed place is "I Knew You Were Trouble" by Taylor Swift. This line right here, "...But I just thought, how can the devil be pulling you toward someone who looks so much like an angel when he smiles at you?..." really reminded me that Kia is SO cute but that he works for the Dukes. Another line that reminded me of that part is, "...I knew you were trouble when you walked in; So shame on me now;Flew me to places I'd never been;'Til you put me down, oh..." and Anna knew he liked to "hook-up" but she fell for him anyway.

    I LOVE Sweet Evil! I've read it many, many times and I still love and enjoy it no matter how many times I read it. My copy is well worn :) I can not wait 'til Sweet Peril! I loved the title Sweet Hope but when it changed to Sweet Peril I fell in love with it and I haven't even read it! Thank you again for the giveaway and I can't wait until I get my hands on Sweet Peril!!

    I am a US res :)

  38. Woman I don´t think you know how cruel you are with those teasers... I was like in a trance reading this one
    About the questions, the song that remind me of Sweet Evil is Lonely Boy (Black Keys), of course our Kay is the lonely boy in this story because he has so many people around him but Anna is the only one at the end of the day that he needs
    International (Costa Rica)

  39. OMG Wendy!! That teaser, I feel like my heart will explode, lol! Loved it!!
    Let's see a song that reminds me of Sweet Evil, that's gotta be "Invincible" by Muse, I always think of Anna and Kai with that <3
    I'd also like to add a song for Kai's road trip and that is "Road Trippin'" by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

    Thank you so much for the giveaway!
    I'm in international (Mexico)
    First name: Gaby

  40. - What actor/actresses can you picture playing Kai & Anna?

    Bryan Dechart as Kai:
    Not only is he irresistible on the eyes, but so is his voice...I could listen to him read the dictionary for hours ;)

    Ashley Benson as Anna

    Tiffany - USA

  41. AHHHH! Oh my god, I want one of those copies so bad!
    The song Give Me Love by Ed Sheeran makes me think of Sweet Evil. The song is about wanting love but not being able to reach it so it reminds me of Anna and Kai's situation-how they both want love but can't get it.
    And now that song will be stuck in my head for the rest of the day :)

    That teaser was just cruel, Wendy! How am I supposed to wait to read Sweet Peril after that? My anxiety level for wanting to read that book just went up even higher ;)

    Name: Farrah; US

  42. I, myself, am in my own puddle of desire after reading that teaser-sigh! Anyway..what song makes me think of Sweet Evil? "I Won't Give Up" by Jason Mraz! Also, just as a bonus, "Poison and Wine" by The Civil Wars!
    Cannot wait for the release of Sweet Peril!

    Cassi B., RN
    United States of America

  43. Oh god that teaser >.< I neeed this book!

    I'm international (Switzerland).
    Hm... songs... maybe Gone With the Sin by HIM? Or Juneau by Funeral For A Friend.
    I never picture any actors for book characters. They are distinct people in my mind.

    Thanks so much for the giveaway! :D

  44. Wow, hi Wendy! Thanks for this opportunity.
    And the teaser...!!! *fans self* just when I thought Kai couldn't get any hottter. (I had to add an extra t there somewhere)
    As for the question, I think Locked out of Heaven by Bruno Mars reminds me of Sweet Evil. (It's been replaying in my head every single minute today, for some odd reason)
    *crosses fingers*
    if only I could obtain a review copy for my blog.
    *sigh* I'm an INTERNATIONAL reader, so.
    Will stalk Harper international the next couple of days. :))

  45. Thanks for sharing that amazing teaser!! :) Cannot wait for Sweet Peril! :)
    Okay, so I scrolled through my playlist and quite a few remind me of Sweet Evil. Firstly, 'Lose Your Soul' by Dead Man's Bones -it's really atmospheric and I think it fits the tone of Sweet Evil. Also, 'State of Seduction' by Digital Daggers -I think this fits because it talks about coming undone and creating destruction through seduction and this totally fits.
    For the soundtrack, I could see Kai playing these songs in his car. Firstly is 'Sail' by AWOLNATION, and lastly 'Riot' by Three Days Grace.
    Thanks for the giveaway!! :)
    (Steph - International)

  46. OMG!!! I'm dying to read this book. Really dying!!!! I love Kaidan so much!
    The song that always makes me think of them is "You give love a bad name by Bon Jovi" I don't even know why, I just think it match with them!
    Thanks a lot for this chance!

    El Salvador (Int)

  47. I don't know why but the song that reminds me of Sweet Evil is Iris by Goo Goo Dolls.
    Thanks for the giveaway.

    (US entry)

  48. Thank you for this amazing giveaway! :) And OMG to the teaser :) <3
    So, I have two road trip songs for Kai - 32 Ways to Die and Count Your Last Blessings by Sum 41.
    Angel by Massive Attack reminds me of Sweet Evil.
    Name: Alena
    And I am an international reader (Germany)


    Canada (Int.)

  50. Song for Sweet Evil
    Show me the meaning of being lonely by Backstreet Boys

    Name- Raman Mangat
    India (International)

  51. *does excited/swoon-y happy dance around dining room* *stubs toe* *limps back to chair*

    One More Night by Maroon 5 really makes me think of Kai and Anna a la Sweet Evil. Or anything with a good drum beat. Or Riot by Three Days Grace. Music and books just go so friggin' well together!

    Samantha (International-Canada)

  52. - What song can you imagine appearing on Kai's Road Trip Playlist?

    As i was reading the book, the song Halo by Haley James Scott kept playing in my mind. It was like it was on auto-repeat or something!! :)

    "I never promised you a ray of light,
    I never promised there'd be sunshine everyday,
    I give you everything I have, the good, the bad."

    This is soooooooooo Kai right??? :)

    I really hope I get the book coz i might die if i dont. Hahaha. xo

  53. Thanks for the giveaway! I haven't read Sweet Evil yet, but I have heard a lot of great things about it. I also haven't read many series, so I would have to say either Hunger Games or The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo are my favorites.
    I am international (Canada).

  54. "Roll Away Your Stone" by Mumford and Sons reminds me of Sweet Evil. Thanks for the giveaway!

    Jennifer in the US

  55. Hi Wendy,

    First, teaser = Yum! (I'm telling you send Kai my way and we'll keep it our little secret!)
    Second, Song = I guess I would say this is Kai's road trip song "Outside" by Staind. I feel like he would be singing it to himself. When he is trying to be good this is what I think the doubter side of him sings:
    I'm on the outside
    I'm looking in
    I can see through you
    See your true colors
    'Cause inside you're ugly
    You're ugly like me
    I can see through you
    See to the real you

    Third, you know I love you, Sweet Peril, Kai & Anna! Just sayin'

    <3 ya - Michele (USA)
    ps. emailing you for a "serious reviewer" request as well ;)

  56. I can't wait for this book !!! Sweet evil was beyond my expectations !!! What song makes you think of Sweet Evil? Katy Perry - E.T. ft. Kanye West , it reminds of dynamics of Kai's and Anna's relationship ... What song can you imagine appearing on Kai's Road Trip Playlist? Something Dark like Rob Zombie " Living Dead girl " !! Thanks for the giveaway and good luck everybody !!

  57. What song makes you think of Sweet Evil?
    Dark side by Kelly Clarkson

    What actor/actresses can you picture playing Kai & Anna?
    Dean Geyer/Robbie Amell and Ashley Benson/Amanda Seyfried


  58. - What song makes you think of Sweet Evil?

    Glory Box by Portishead

    The tune's absolutely sexy. :)) Female vocals but Kai and Anna can sing this in duet. (I actually imagined Kai singing the first part, with changes in gender-related words, of course, both of them in the middle part and Anna the last part. SO AWESOME.)

    Mary A. - International (Philippines)

  59. Okay, picking an actor and actress to play Kai and Anna is soooo super hard for me. I have this perfect picture in my head of what they each look like and I can't think of any actors/actresses that match up to that description. But, since I really, really, really want to win an ARC of Sweet Peril (and since it doesn't look like I'm going to get a review copy ARC, because they haven't responded to me), I think I'll pick Emma Roberts for Anna and...and...okay, there's no one good enough to play Kai, there just isn't! Sorry! Lol.

    Thanks so much for this giveaway! I'm in Canada, so International. Email is sikbookreviews at gmail dot com

    Pick me! Haha :)

  60. The song that makes me think of Sweet Evil is Hysteria by Muse.
    For a road trip song, I'd pick "Classifieds" by The Academy Is... I can totally imagine Kaidan Rowe digging those jams.
    Ever since I picked up the Sweet Evil, I've pictured Kai as Alex Pettyfer. So HOTT! (Double 'T' and all!) Anna was a little more tricky. I eventually decided on Kristen Storms.
    Name: Joanna
    I think it goes without saying that I adore this series. I eagerly await the next!

  61. Omg I'm SOOO EXCITED FOR THIS! Thank you Wendy! :D
    Okay, so:
    What song can you imagine appearing on Kai's Road Trip Playlist?
    I'm not sure why, but Snow by Red Hot Chilli Peppers feels just right.

    What song makes you think of Sweet Evil?
    A drop in the ocean by Ron Pope
    As it Seems by Lily Kershaw (SO right for Anna)
    Also, for some weird reason, Oblivion by Bastille

    International (Pakistan)

  62. I need that ARC. Animal I Have Become by Three Days Grace always reminds me of Kaiden. Here is a link:

    My favorite series is a four-way tie: Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout, The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare, The Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead, and the Wicked Lovely series by Melissa Marr.

  63. OMG thank you so much for the giveaway!!!

    The song that makes me think of Sweet Evil is Wish I Had An Angel by Nightwish! I love that song, and I think it totally works with the story and the covers of both books!!

    Ashley (cazzyae(at)gmail(dot)com) - US

  64. ..... I don't know how I'm going to write/remember the responses to your question.

    Anna and Kai's playlist:
    Fun. , some Imagine Dragons, and Neon Trees.

    Actor and Actress to play Kai and Anna:
    Wade Poezyn(he's a model and actor=HOTT(def. extra T worthy) and Candice Accola (Caroline Forbes from Vampire Diaries)

    Markell B./US

  65. Well, it's not really a song that popped into my head while I was reading a book. It's more the book that popped into my head while I was listening to the song :) I Knew You Were Trouble by Taylor Swift portraits everything about Kai, Anna and their relationship.

    The actors... Pff, it's impossible for me to choose. Ever since I've become one of the die-hard fans of Sweet Evil, I always pictured Kaidan as model Wade Poezyn and Anna as a beautiful blonde girl. If Sweet Evil gets a movie deal -- hopefully!!! -- I'm sure the producers will find the perfect actor and actress. Until then, I'm satisfied with Wade.

    As for the road trip song Lawson's Learn to Love Again seems great :)

    Thanks Wendy for the opportunity! I'm from Romania and my email is andrepop98(at)yahoo(dot)com

  66. The song that makes me think of Sweet Evil is Start a Fire by Ryan Star. Listen to it once and then all you will picture is Kai and Anna and their sexual desire. ;) It's such a perfect song for the whole dynamic between them! I could see it playing in the background during their time in the hotel scene.

    "Here we go,
    Just lose control and let your body give in,
    To the beat,
    Of your heart as my hand touches your skin,
    Is this love
    Just sexual desire,
    We're gonna start a fire!"

    Karissa Patton, USA

    1. The link to the song with lyrics can be found here if you haven't heard it:

    2. Parachute "Kiss me Slowly" is also another perfect song I picture for there time in the hotel room, when Kai leaves her and she is alone with her thoughts.
      "Stay with me
      Baby stay with me
      Tonight don’t leave
      Me alone
      Walk with me
      Come and walk with me
      To the edge of all
      We’ve ever known"

      and Kai's reaction to leaving her for the night:
      "I can see you there with the city lights
      14th floor; Pale blue eyes
      I could breathe you in
      2 shadows standing by the bedroom door
      No I could not want you more than I did right then
      As our heads leaned in
      Well I’m not sure what this is gonna be
      But with my eyes closed all I see
      Is the skyline through the window
      The moon above you and the streets below
      Hold my breath as you’re moving in
      Taste your lips and feel your skin
      When the time comes, baby don’t run
      Just kiss me slowly
      Stay with me
      Baby stay with me"

    3. I should've just made one big post, but I keep getting more inspired with the questions you asked. Soo, if I had to choose who should play Kai and Anna I would say:

      For Anna, Willa Holland (Arrow)(she could very easily dye her hair blonde - she just has the innocent yet "I can kick your ass" look to her)
      And for Kai, (since Wade may currently be untouchable) I would say Wes Brown (90210).

  67. Wow! Awesome teaser Wendy!

    The song that makes me think of SweetEvil is the cover of 'Impossible' by James Arthur. As he's from the UK it reminds me of Kai and the lyrics some up the feeling at the End of Sweet Evil.

    Here's a link to hear it:

    Katie International - UK (@KatieOlley)

  68. "Broken" by Seether and Amy Lee reminds me of the relationship between Kai and Anna, and i love how they complete each other. Hope i win!

    ~Kajal K. (

  69. The song that reminds me of Sweet Evil is Better than i know myself by Adam Lambert. The actress that i can imagine playing Anna is Sasha Pieterse and the actor that i can imagine Kai to play is Ryan Merriman. What song i think is on Kaidan is Animal by Neon Trees. :)

    Gabriela :)

  72. Hello Wendy, the teaser just made me gasp so loud that my mom asked me if I am ok...
    The song that comes in my mind when I think at Kai and Anna is Lana del Rey - Diet Mountain Dew. It's awesome!
    A Kai's playlist song I'd like to be The White Stripes - Seven Nation Army
    And even if I read Sweet Evil, one of my many favourites series is Chicagoland Vampires by Chloe Neill, which I recommend to you.

  74. Oooh, AWESOME teaser! Thank you for posting it! I can't WAIT for Sweet Peril. So a song that makes me think of Sweet Evil is "A Little Taste" by Skyler Stonestreet. Mostly because of these lyrics:

    You're so bad but I want a taste.
    A little taste you have, come on over
    Right now, take me down.
    I want your poison.
    thought this was just a phase,
    but everyday I slip, starting over.
    You crawl through my skin,
    and I let you in.
    Oh how you give me chills,
    hold my breath 'til it kills me.
    Come on, tear me apart,
    I'll rest in peace, yeah.

    -Rachel Elizabeth, Res498(AT)

  75. The song that makes me think of Sweet Evil is People Like Us by Kelly Clarkson. She says 'Here's to the damned, to the lost and forgotten.' And 'People like us have got to stick together. Keep your head up, nothing lasts forever.' The nephilim (sp?) are damned and and Anna is trying to get them to stick together to beat the Dukes. I'm from the US. I so can't wait for Sweet Peril. Seriously, I think I dream about it!

  76. I love Sweet Evil. For some reason do not ask me why, maybe because I love the band, when I think of either of FUNs songs I can put it to any part of Sweet Evil.

  77. One of the songs I would imagine being on Kaidan's Road Trip Playlist would probably be System by Archive. Seems like something he would like.

    So the song that reminds me of Sweet Peril is Drive Me by Phillip Phillips- he is amazing!
    The song makes me think of how Kaidan feels on having to work day after day, and how he wishes someone-Anna will come to save him.

    Thanks for the giveaway Wendy, it is awesome!!!

  79. Hi Wendy! I am Camille Pelaez and I'm from the Philippines. I have just finished reading Sweet Evil last week and the question I chose to answer is, "What song makes you think of Sweet Evil?"

    I know that a lot of people really want to have that copy of the sequel and I hope you really get to read this.

    Bittersweet by Ellie Goulding is the very first song that comes to my mind when I think of Sweet Evil. I think its because, both of them, Kai and Anna, are afraid of what's gonna happen the next day. They just live for the moment and try to make it count because what tomorrow brings is a mystery and they fear what punishment evil has to offer. At the same time, they are both wishing so hard that they could be together.

    There was also a time in the book when Kai was trying to distance his self from Anna because he realized he cared for her more than he should. I know that Anna knew Kai already had feelings for her and she wants for him to reach out to her. She wishes to be there for him. She wants to be next to him and every time she's with him, she's scared that tomorrow, things might change. She holds on to something Bittersweet - something that scares her but contents all the desires of her heart. Because of that, because she's happy and inlove and complete when they're together but she's scared as well, of tomorrow, of the evil that has its eyes on them, and whatever love could make them do - Bittersweet is the song for Sweet Evil.

    I hope I really get the book Wendy. Thank you for sharing your stories to the world.You make a lot of lonely kids, like me, happy...and hope for a better story and a better ending in life. Continue making the world more colorful!

  80. The song that makes me think about Sweet Evil is give me love by ed sheeran


  81. If I didn't know better by Clare Bowen and Sam Palladio for what song makes me think of sweet evil.
    Love your books! Dying to read sweet peril!

  82. If I didn't know better by Clare Bowen and Sam Palladio for what song makes me think of sweet evil.
    Love your books! Dying to read sweet peril!

  83. For the road trip I always imagine a Blink 182 song since Kai is a drummer and Travis Barker is one of the best drummers out there. What can I say I love me some drummers (even my husband is one LOL) anyways I will say "Im lost without you" which in turn mekes me think of the book too. US fan Leidy

  84. Winner by Karina Pasian (btw Wendy you should hear this song) this song reminds me of Anna and Kaiden's relationship, its kind of freaky because it matches perfectly with the book, it really looks like the song was written for the book.

    When I read the book I pictured Kai like this god, I didn't know anybody who could match with his description properly and the day I saw Wade Poezyn on the tournament I almost got a heart attack because he is soooo sooo similar to how I imagined Kai to be. For Anna I always pictured her as Chelsea Kane, for me Chelsea fits every characteristics Anna has. (She also has a beauty mark close to her lips, not exactly like Anna but for some reason it made her look even more similar to Anna)

    For the road trip playlist I chose the song Sweet Love by Chris brown. I chose this song because is a sexy song and it kind of says some things Kaiden wants but cant say or do. Also Kaiden loves to tease Anna if she blushed and felt flustered when "I'm bringing sexy back" started playing, she would blush even more with this song and we all know Kaiden loves to have that effect on Anna. (Bad bad Kaiden) lol.

    Even though I read Sweet Evil (thank God and Wendy!!) before I had a favorite (Angel, Demon, Nephilim) book. Its funny because when I saw your jealousy blog I felt surprised that you felt that way. Hush hush, use to be that book. I loved everything of it the characters, the plot, PATCH but as the books went on I started to lose that amusement I felt every time I read it, the characters started to bore me, Nora started to annoy me and little by little patch was just patch not PATCH. I gave up on angel books until sweet evil. I know a book its good just by reading the first page and with sweet evil I was hooked just by seeing the cover. I love everything about the book and how original it is. So Wendy don't feel jealousy because your book made me like Angel books again and I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one.
    To finalize thanks for reading this and good luck everybody.

    The song I think that describes Sweet Evil is I Won't Give Up by Jason Mraz. One of the lines says " I won't give up on us, even if the skies get rough. I', giving you all my love, but i'm still looking up." Kai shouldn't give up on Anna, and the same goes for Anna. They have to work through their rough patches and hope for the best in the end.
    Thank you for your time and I am really looking forward to reading Sweet Peril. Bye!

  86. Eek! Ok the song that reminds me of Sweet Evil is "Dirty Little Secret" by All American Rejects...

    The song I can see on Kai playlist is "Creep" by either Radiohead.

    Actress/Actor that's a tough one... I guess I would be ok with Juliane Hough as Anna and Kai well Ian can't spell his last name (plays Damon on TVD)

    Favorite book/series would have to be Lord of the Rings

    Thanks Wendy for the opportunity to win! And for writing an amazing story and swoon worthy Kai. Also the teasers! Lol

  87. I'm INT.
    Haven't read Sweet Evil yet but I'm waiting for it to come any day now from TBD :))
    My favorite series is The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. Thank you very much for the international giveaway!



  88. Oh, I love that teaser! I can't wait to see what happens next :D

    What song can you imagine appearing on Kai's Road Trip Playlist? - Right now I'm completely obsessed with Bruce Springsteen's I'm On Fire song. It's the perfect song in my opinion for a road trip - relaxing enough to let you enjoy the road, but sexy enough so that you don't fall asleep. I just love that song.

    Thank you for your time and I am really looking forward to reading Sweet Peril. Bye!

  91. There is a song so perfect for Sweet Evil that I literally could not stop thinking about the book when I listened to the song. This song *seriously* belongs on the Sweet Evil playlist – Mr. Brightside by The Killers.

    It reminds me so so much of Anna and Kai’s relationship and especially about Kai’s affinity for lust. It’s almost too perfect. The first line of the song “Coming out of my cage and I’ve been doing just fine…” reminds me so much of Anna.

    The actor I imagine playing Kai is hands down Nicholas Hoult. He is Kai personified in personality from his character in Skins UK. Plus he’s British. :) Emily Tennant would be a perfect Anna. She looks exactly how I would Imagine Anna in my head.

    - Ezmirelda, US

  92. I'm not sure if this song would fall under the category of representing the book or if it would just be on Kai's playlist, but I really love Kings of Leon 'Closer'.

    Cassandra, US

  93. 1) If I didn´t know better by The Civil Wars!!
    2) Hurricane by 30 seconds to mars
    3) AnnaSophia Robb and hmmm maybe Steven Strait
    4) I looove Jennifer L. Armentrouts books, every single one of them :)!!!!

    thank you for the giveaway!!

    Lena international

  94. Not sure if this is weird or not but "Poor Some Sugar On Me" makes me think of Sweet Evil lol. It's a pretty inappropriate & sexy song...which is a lot like Kai.

    I can't wait for Sweet Peril!

    US reader here! :D

  95. I`m reading Sweet Evil right now, so I can`t really answer the questions yet. My favorites right now are Perfect Chemistry, Unearthly, Legend series :D I can`t choose just one.
    Name: Maija Steinbrika
    And I`m INT

  96. The first song I thought of when I read Sweet Evil (which I loved, btw) was 'Devil Inside' by INXS. It just fit the situation SO well, and also totally exemplifies Kai's hotness.

    As far as actors & actresses, I would probably choose between Chris Evans and Ben Barnes for Kai (I know they don't necessarily match up, but I think they're the hottest things out there!). I have a harder time picking actresses.

    Thanks for the chance to win an ARC! I can't wait to read Sweet Peril.

    Emily, USA

  97. I'm having a difficult time picking just ONE song that makes me think of Sweet Evil, but here's one that makes me think of Kaidan: Heart In a Cage by The Strokes
    I especially like this cover of it:
    And that teaser? GOOSEBUMPS. I want it, Kai!

    Zeinab (International - Sweden)

  98. Oh! Nice teaser. I'm blushing!

    Hmmm, I think "I will Follow You into the Dark" by Death Cab for Cutie reminds me most of Sweet Evil.
    Kai's road trip playlist would probably include "When we were Young" by The Killers.
    Does Wade Poezyn count as an actor? ;) Because that's who I think of as Kai. Chloe Moretz would make a great Anna!

    Julie (USA)

  99. Omg so what song makes me think of the book....sooo many while i was reading it but if i had to narrow say "Kiss Me" by Ed Sheeran. If u dont know the song, listen to it. Its amazing, and i love it so much and i heard it AFTER reading and thought it fit! I could hear Kai having some Green Day on his list. Not old stuff but newer..maybe "The Forgotten" which i love too lol. For say i could see Shiloh Fernandez playing him as well as Grey Damon...even though they are completely opposite in looks, i see him in both of their acting, and a smidge in looks lol. As for Anna, she is hard because i see her as someone i dont know yet. A new face in Hollywood. But if i had to choose i would say Brit Robertson. Shes petite, pretty, as well as a good, young actress, and i know she wouldnt mind doing hair changes or things to match the book if needed, shes flexible!

    Well i have read the books obviously, and i have talked to u in facebook a few times, but i will just answer some of my favorite books/series: Everneath (yay for Brodi now too!), Divergent trilogy, The Mara Dyer trilogy, Shatter me, Under the Never Sky, The Alchemy of Forever...Matched trilogy, The Mortal, wow, so many more. I am always reading! :) my facebook name is Brittany Jade Palacios. I have messaged u, and i comment frequently, especially when u are tagged in pictures lol :) have a good day Wendy!

  100. Dain - US of A. :)

    A song that makes me think of Anna and Kai (especially during the slower parts of the song) is Happy Together, covered by Filter. It actually seems to me like a song that Lascivious would cover, because it's a little hard and rough and I think incredibly sexy in the Filter version.

    Oh man, now that you've got me thinking, I'm coming up with so many songs for Anna and Kai.

    From Anna's perspective, I think it's more "Like a Star" by Corinne Bailey Rae, "Closer" by Tegan and Sara, "Toxic" by Yael Naim, "Heartlines" by Florence + the Machine. For Kai: Someone mentioned "Howlin' for You" by The Black Keys, which I also agree with. "Please Don't Go" by Barcelona for when he's feeling low/when they're fighting, "I'm On Fire" by Bruce Springsteen, "U.R.A. Fever" by The Kills, "You Will Leave a Mark" by A Silent Film, and the demo version of "Mr. Brightside" by The Killers (

    Jeez, I should just make a playlist or something. I mean, that list is practically one right there.

    Anyway, I'm psyched for Sweet Peril!

  101. I think of MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE's SO LONG AND GOOD NIGHT, while reading the road trip scene. Thanks so much for the opportunity I'm so excited to read Sweet Peril! I'm Canadian/International and my name is Hayley! :)

  102. "I Will Possess Your Heart" by Death Cab for Cutie makes me think of Sweet Evil because whether Anna or Kai realize it, Anna does have his heart. And it is like possession because it wasn't up for grabs to begin with. ;) I think Anna Sophia Robb would be a perfect Anna. She's so sweet and down-to-earth, and I think she'd pull off innocent Southern girl really well.

    Thanks for the giveaway and that super hawt teaser! I can't wait to read Sweet Peril!!!!

    Jen (US)

  103. Honestly way too many songs make me think of Sweet Evil but this song by Florence and the Machine kind of reminds me of the end of the book, idk why but it does Cosmic Love.

    But I really really think this song is perfect for Anna and Kai Your Guardian Angel by The Red Suite Apparatus.

    I loved loved loved the teaser sooo good can't wait for it to come out, but my favorite book is called Island Of The Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell, I read it as a kid and I feel in love with it.


    Good Luck everyone ^_^

    1.) Feel Again by One Republic
    2.) Demons by Imagine Dragons
    3.) Annasophia Robb as Anna and Douglass Booth as Kaidan

    Thanks for this awesome opportunity!
    Katherine (USA)

  105. Sweet Peril! *squeeee!!!*

    - What song makes you think of Sweet Evil?: Definitely "Not Strong Enough" by Apocalyptica, featuring Brent Smith

    - What song can you imagine appearing on Kai's Road Trip Playlist?: "Heaven's a Lie" by Lacuna Coil. I think he'd get a kick out of the title, and the band's definition of the real meaning of the title (from Wikipedia): "leading vocalist Cristina Scabbia explained the meaning of the song; the word "heaven" is a metaphor for a "perfect life". When the phrase "your heaven's a lie" is used, it is referring to people who try to force their opinions on others"

    - What actor/actresses can you picture playing Kai & Anna?: If Anna Paquin was still young enough, she would have been perfect, but Anna: Bridgit Mendler and Kai... someone mentioned Ben Barnes and... yes, please!

    - If you haven't read Sweet Evil yet (which I suggest you do before cracking open Sweet Peril)tell us what your favorite book or series is. :) Read Sweet Evil :-P and I love too many books to pick! I seem to gravitate towards fictional dead boys, though Kai broke that mold!

    Carli (emberchyld)- US

  106. Oh my god that's one seriously hott teaser, with a double T. I'm a puddle of goo right now. *sigh* man, I love Kai.
    And the song that reminds me of Sweet Evil is Sexy Back by Justin Timberlake. It mostly reminds me of Kai. (Do I need to explain why? *wink wink*) Also, when Anna and Kai were on the trip, Sexy Back came on.


  107. I can't wait for this book to come out especially after that teaser! I think one song that reminds me so sweet evil is Angel by Jack Johnson. Thanks so much for the giveaway
    Lisa (US entry)

  108. I picture Anna as Candice Accola. And I think Kai would have I Will Wait by Mumford and Sons on a playlist. Thanks for the teaser, and for the chance to win!

  109. Thanks for making the comp international!
    Fantasy- 30 Seconds to Mars, I think could fit chapter 1 from Kai's POV, what he's thinking/feeling as he drums. Love a bit of Kai's POV!
    Lucy (International)

  110. Yaaaaaaay! Giveaway again! Wendy, you're great! :D

    The song I was listening to while reading Sweet Evil is Demons by Imagine Dragons. It reminded me so much of Kai and his inner struggle.

    "They say it's what you make
    I say it's up to fate
    It's woven in my soul
    I need to let you go."

    Also I thought about Enough to Let Me Go by Switchfoot while reading the last chapter.

    I'm Jasminka, international fan because you are loved everywhere! :*

  111. Everything makes me think of Sweet Evil :'P I've just finished re-reading the book. again and tbh its going to be in my head for, lets say, weeks!!

    I love kaidan. we have soo much in common. like our sexy imagination.

    I think Wade Poezy in so Kaidan and Anna could be me :'P lol jokes. I'm not blonde..(Though I could dye my hair O.o) Anywaays Anna could be Chelan Simmons or Kyla Collins. maybe Diana Agron.

    And what song would go perfectly with sweet evil? well I think your love is my drug by Kesha is perfect. (For anna) lol. also I think We found love by Rihanna is good.
    the song I think Kaidan should have on his playlist is Sex In the lounge by Nicki Minaj and Lil wayne. You know, cause Kaidan is an expert at it ;') Plus I could also hear him listening to Whip it by Nicki Minaj. :'P

    International. From the U.K (Like kaidan!! I also Lived in Wales for the first 3 years of my life. Just putting it out there)
    My name is Koliie

    And P.s all I could say for that teaser is.....ANNA, MOVE OVER BABE!!!

  112. I think a good song for Sweet Evil is "With or Without You" by U2. It definitely fits both characters feelings for each other.

  113. I imagine that there is this one song that is not like the rest and it Kai's guilty pleasure song.

    And for the song on his playlist, I would think he listens to Imagine Dragons and especially Radioactive.

    US fan

  114. The song I think of for Sweet Evil: "Don't Cry" by Guns N Roses

    For the song on his playlist, he should listen to "Please Come In" by Black Stone Cherry!

    Can't wait for Sweet Peril!!!

    I'm US!

  115. When I read Sweet Evil,I thought of Ain't It Funny by Jennifer Lopez..

    "But yet we find ourselves in a less than perfect circumstance
    And so it seems like we'll never have the chance"

    "I barely know you but somehow I know what you're about"

    I think that sums it up..:)
    Can't wait to read Sweet Peril...and now that I've read that teaser..WHYYYYYY?????


  116. This is so exciting! I loved Sweet Evil so much, my favorite book of last year.
    As for the actors, I imagined Dianna Agron as Anna. I struggled with Kaidan because I couldn't think of anyone that lived up to how I imagined him in my mind but probably someone like Taylor Lautner, even though he's nowhere near as perfect as Kai.
    Thanks for the great giveaway :)
    Emma (International)

  117. The anticipation for this book is killing me! I cannot wait for April.
    The song that reminds me of Sweet Evil is Demons by Imagine Dragons.

    It reminds me of the moment when Kai realizes the true danger of his relationship with Anna after she is almost killed at the meeting. I picture the moment when he is watching her drive away in the taxi knowing he needs to leave her and he didn't even get to say goodbye!

    Thank you for this amazing series!

    Colleen Leonard (US)

  118. OMG I am dying for this book!
    Any song by The Pretty Reckless reminds me of Sweet Evil.
    For Anna, I always picture that Rebecca girl from The Vampire Diaries.
    US- Nereyda Gonzalez

  119. Since Sweet Evil is my favorite topic since I read for the first time, I couldn't choose just one question to answer.

    - What song makes you think of Sweet Evil?
    I think Whispers in the Dark by Mumford & Sons. It matches so well with Kai and Anna's relationship       

    - What song can you imagine appearing on Kai's Road Trip Playlist?
    I can definitely see Dakota by Stereophonics appearing on Kai's Road Trip playlist. It's a great sing along song nd has Kai written all over it.

    - What actor/actresses can you picture playing Kai & Anna?
    For Kai definitely Douglas booth . Age appropriate, beautiful lips, perfect jaw and british. #winning
    And for Anna, I see her being played for a healthy looking actress and southern vibe like Britt Robertson

    Name: Sarah Janis
    (Internacional - Brazil)

  120. THAT TEASER!! *melts*
    Actress for Anna: Amada Seyfried
    Actor for Kaidan: Maybe Matt Lanter or Jeremy Irvine :D
    Thanks for the giveaway!!

  121. What song can you imagine appearing on Kai's Road Trip Playlist?

    SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS!!! (Just kidding, but if that can't get a 6 year old's attention, I don't know what can)

    Come on Get Higher - Sugarland's cover (Matt Nathanson)

    I really really loved the way Sugarland covered this song!!

    Kelly McKay (US)

  122. Oh Jesus clouds X_X
    You cannot possible believe I'd be able to breathe after such a torturous yet delicious teaser, can you?! T_T

    Thanks sooo very much for the chance!!! O_O That necklace is GORGEOUS!

    And to answer one of your questions...

    It doesn't make me think exactly of Sweet Evil but of Anna's and Kai's... um... THING that they have...

    They kind of are drawn to each other... but not... He needs her... but doesn't want to accept it... But this song... I just feel it describes perfectly when they stop seeing each other...

    Broken by Amy Lee & Seether...
    ALL the Lyrics... And what Amy sings... PERFECTION to what Anna feels T_T

    I cannot stop listening to it whenever I read Sweet Evil or the other way around!! X_X

    That's it :D
    My name's indeed Alba :D
    I'm international :D

    I have another one that makes me think of Sweet Evil too but it's in spanish so it wouldn't make much sense here... I think :)

  123. Sooo...I haven't read Sweet Evil yet BUT. I promise I will get to it. It's just I have so many books to read, and before I can do that I have to work through everything I've got for school. I really want to read it, it looks amazing! And that teaser that's up there. OMG, that automatically makes me want to read it EVEN more. Thank you for the giveaway! :)

    International (UK)

  124. A song that reminds me of Sweet Evil Anna is more precisely "Just Tonight" and "Make Me Wanna Die" from the band The Pretty Reckless. In addition to several other songs like "Fight" and "Get Well" from Icon For Hire, a song that I recommend listening to Anna's * laughs * "I Knew you where trouble" of Taylor Swift. Kai imagine listening to Lonely Day Sistem Of A Down while traveling, a good actress to play Anna Ashley Benson and Kaidan would someone like Thomas Dekker (EHHEHEH).
    Name: Tailini

  125. Bad Romance by GaGa reminds me of Sweet Evil. Because it's bad, but it's also sooooo good. ;)

    April- US.

  126. Fabiola - International

    - What song makes you think of Sweet Evil?

    Fix you by Codplay because this is my favorite band in the world and the lyrics of the song are as I imagine the relationship between Kai/Anna: deep, problematic, impossible but sweet <3

    - What song can you imagine appearing on Kai's Road Trip Playlist?
    Something byt The Beatles! I mean, he's british and The Beatles is the BEST band in the whole world so, I think he has his favorite songs of them but Something is about how a man loves everything about a woman and these parts of the song are Kai's thoughts (I think so...):

    "Something in the way she moves
    Attracts me like no other lover
    Something in the way she woos me
    I don't want to leave her now
    You know I believe and how"

    "Somewhere in her smile she knows
    That I don't need no other lover
    Something in her style that shows me
    I don't want to leave her now
    You know I believe and how"

    "Something in the way she knows
    And all I have to do is think of her"


  127. Who We Are by Red reminds me of Sweet Evil, I don't know why though :P
    Thanks for the giveaway, can't wait to finally read Sweet peril.

    Hayley- Canada

  128. My real name is Conni and I'm from England.

    f you haven't read Sweet Evil yet (which I suggest you do before cracking open Sweet Peril) tell us what your favorite book or series is.

    I have read Sweet evil and it is my favourite book. But it is joint first with two of Jennifer L Armentrout's series; The Lux series and The Convenant series. I can't pick between the three. <3

  129. First of all, thank you so much for the giveaway! :) That teaser...this is too much...

    Now the answers...

    What song makes you think of Sweet Evil? I would say I knew you were trouble - Taylor Swift.

    What song can you imagine appearing on Kai's Road Trip Playlist? Castle of Glass - Linkin Park. I love this song! Is emotional but the pace is strong :D

    Thanks again!

  130. A song that makes me think of Sweet Evil is Head Over Feet by Alanis Morisette. I can hear this from Kai's point of view as he wrestles over what he is feeling for Anna and what he is supposed to be doing for his father.

    I can't wait to read Sweet Peril, and the necklace is gorgeous!

  131. OMMMMMMGGGGGGGGGGGGGG! I need Sweet Peril so bad. >.<

    Whenever I listen to "The Hardest Thing" by Tyler Ward it reminds me of how Anna probably feels at the end of Sweet Evil. It's a gorgeous song!!

    Kaidan's roadtrip playlist? Hmmm... Maybe something from The Script? Their song "Six Degrees of Separation" is a good one.

    I really want Zac Efron to play Kaidan. Zac Efron is just gorgeous. 'Nuff said. (; As for Anna... I'm not quite sure. I can't think of anyone off the top of my head.

    Favourites apart from Sweet Evil? Ahh, I love anything from Jennifer L. Armentrout and Richelle Mead.

    Samantha - UK

  132. I am a U.S. reader! I think Chloë Moretz would be a great Anna and Ed Westwick (if only he was taller) would be a great Kai. He's British! Or a dark hair Alex Pettyfer... <3

    Annie :)

  133. loved the teaser!! anticipation for sweet peril is killing me! huge fan of your books Wendy! xo
    questions: playlist for kai, I would think he would listen to flogging molly or drop kick murphys
    song I think of is at the end of sweet evil when kai moves to LA, alex clare too close

  134. I like to listen to music while I read. And the whole time while I was reading Sweet Evil, I found myself replaying the song "Rehab" By Rihanna ft. Justin Timberlake over and over again. I just think it completely explains Kai's and Anna's relationship (the song is coming from Anna's POV)Even the music video is perfect!!!

  135. What song do I imagine on Kai's playlist?? I definitely see him screaming the lyrics to Linkin Park's "Numb" as he thinks of his father and all the pressure he puts on him to "perform". How he would rather be himself then what his overwhelmingly controlling father wants him to be.

  136. ~What song makes you think of Sweet Evil?

    There are so many songs that remind me of Kai & Anna. I think Anna's song would be "I knew you were trouble" by Taylor Swift, and Kai's song would be "If I had You" by Adam Lambert. Some more songs that I found myself listening to while reading this book were: "I don't wanna be in love" by Good Charlotte, "I won't give up" by Jason Miraz, "Nothing on You" by B.O.B., "The Reason" by Hoobastank. And I think the song that describes both Kai & Anna would be "Your love is my drug" by Ke$ha.

    ~What song can you imagine appearing on Kai's Road Trip Playlist?

    Hmm...maybe "Good girls go bad" by Cobra Starship and "Sexy and I know it" by LMFAO because he has that whole bad boy vibe going on(: yumm! Also, "I don't wanna be in love" by Good Charlotte would describe his situation perfectly.

    ~What actor/actresses can you picture playing Kai & Anna?

    Kai- Chace Crawford or Ian Somerhalder
    Anna- Meaghan Jette


  137. Love the teaser!! :D

    The song "I Knew You Were Trouble" by Taylor Swift totally reminds me of Kai and Anna. The song's kind of sad, but I think it describes how Anna feels towards Kai.

    My first name's Kaitlyn, and I'm from the US. :) Thanks for the great giveaway!

  138. First off, I want to say how much I love Sweet Evil and how great an author I think you are. Also thank you so much for the awesome giveaway, I would freak out if I knew I could read Sweet Peril early.
    So, the song that reminds me most of Kai's and Anna' relationship would have to be Florence + the Machine's *Cosmic Love*. I feel like it describes their relationship to a T. Another song I feel like desrcipes their relationship more towards the end of the book, would be *Almost Love*r by A Fine Frenzy. It desrcibes their relationship in the part of the book where Anna tries to let him go.

    P.S I am from the USA.

  139. I read a bit of Sweet Evil per a friends request, but haven't gotten around to finishing it. Currently, my favorite book is It's Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzino.

  140. THAT TEASER!! *sigh* the suspense of waiting for Sweet Peril to come out is killing me.
    One of the songs that I think fits Sweet Evil is Lose Control by Evanescence.
    ‘Just once in my life/I think it’d be nice/Too loose control, just once’
    Not only do the lyrics fit, but the instrumental stuff in the song gets dark and heavy, then goes light and kind of airy, and then back to dark and heavy. The songs saying in the dark and heavy parts that everything’s so much harder to bear alone, but when you get to the light and airy parts, where you can/did lose control, everything’s suddenly easier to handle… and to me that’s kinda like Anna and Kai.
    As for Kai’s playlist, one song I think he’d have is Topless by Breaking Benjamin.
    My names Halle and i'm from the US

  141. Well my song for Sweet Evil would have to be Savin Me by Nickleback.....fits Kai to a tee..thanks for the giveaway.......

  142. Oh my God! What Teaser! I can wait to read the second book and you just gave us this teaser? Now I can not stop thinking what is going to happen.
    A song that is perfect for Kai and Anna, and makes me think about Sweet Evil is Within Temptation - Angels. And about an actor that could play Kai, well I don't think that there is such a perfect guy like the one that is in my mind to play Kai, he is so damn perfect in my imagination and I will never find a guy to look so good as he does.
    My Name is Ştefana and I'm from Romania (Int).

  143. Well my song for Sweet Evil would have to be Savin Me by Nickleback.....fits Kai to a tee..thanks for the giveaway.......

  144. I haven't read Sweet Evil yet, but I definitely will (thanks to a very persistent friend...)

    My current favorite book would have to be The Fault In Our Stars by John Green.

  146. OMG! Alex pettyfer and Lucy Hale! Both so beautiful! My name is laura and Im from the US

  147. I think the perfect song is I knew you were trouble by Taylor Swift :D Cuz you know Kai is so bad ass while Anna's all sweet so yeah :D

    I hope you like what I chose :D

  148. I love the song The Undertaker by Puscifer for Sweet Evil :)

    deadtossedwaves at gmail dot com

  149. What song makes you think of Sweet Evil?
    "I Wouldn't Mind" by He Is We always reminds me of Anna. Also, whenever I hear "My Heart With You" by The Rescues I seem to think of Sweet Evil.

    What song can you imagine appearing on Kai's Road Trip Playlist?
    I think something with the tune like "San Diego" by The Coronas would totally be Kai's cup of tea. They have an awesome drummer.

    Thanks for the teaser, but I won't hold my breath for the ARC. The Gods are never on my side for these giveaways!

    I'm international.

    Can't wait for April 30th!

  150. I enjoyed reading a couple of scenes between Kai & Anna listening Dakota by Robert Francis.
    Thanks for this, Wendy!
    Greetings from Mexico.

  151. Jemma Sherry ( International) UK Thanks for the Teaser :D
    What song makes me think of Sweet Evil?
    Ne Yo - Because Of You :)
    What songs can I imagine appearing on Kai's Road Trip Playlist?
    Kings Of Leon - Use Somebody and The Lumineers - Ho Hey
    Hehehe I know it was your only meant to answer one but couldn't help myself :L

  152. There's actually a lot of songs that remind me of Sweet Evil (or certain scenes in the book) Addicted - Saving Abel, Lips of an Angel - Hinder, Wanted you More - Lady Antebellum, Just the way you are - Bruno Mars, and Too Close - Alex Clare

    Jennifer (US)

  153. What song makes you think of Sweet Evil?

    "Love isn't Always Fair" by Black Veil Brides is literally THE perfect song for Sweet Evil.

    One look and I am sold
    You got me on my knees
    You steal all my innocence
    A love sick melody

    Take me…

    You always want the one that you can’t have
    'Cause Love Isn’t Always Fair
    You are the best romance I’ve never had
    'Cause Love Isn’t Always Fair

    Your kiss a withered rose
    Your lips have buried me
    Hearts race the moments gone
    We shared this fantasy

    Take me…

    You always want the one that you can’t have
    'Cause Love Isn’t Always Fair
    You are the best romance I’ve never had
    'Cause Love Isn’t Always Fair

    Kneel and pray for closure baby
    This is the ride that we’re on, oh
    And i’m taking what you give to me
    Never want it to stop,
    I want it all

    In this temporary love

    You always want the one that you can’t have
    'Cause Love Isn’t Always Fair
    You are the best romance I’ve never had
    'Cause Love Isn’t Always Fair

    Love Isn’t Always Fair!

    That is Kai and Anna in a Nutshell!

    -Kysha Coates US(A.K.A Wendy Higgins's Biggest Fan <3)

  154. I am CERTAIN you are trying to kill us with that teaser, right? ;) I can't wait for Sweet Peril!

    For some reason, Kings of Leon come up for me for Kaidan. Maybe a little 'Sex on Fire', perhaps?

    Also, I vote Wade Poezyn to also be an actor and play Kaidan. *nods lots* He is definitely who I see.

    Thank you for the teaser and giveaway! (US)

  155. I haven't read Sweet Evil yet (but I really really really want to!!!) so I'll share my favourite series. They are the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning, the Nadia Stafford series by Kelley Armstrong and the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead! Those are the ones that I pretty much adore and have read more than once :D Thank you so much for the giveaway (ARCs are super awesome!!) and for making it international!

    jessicamariesutton(at)msn(dot)com and International.

  156. ~What song makes you think of Sweet Evil?
    I think the song that describes both Kai & Anna would be “The Reason” by Hoobastank. Some other songs I like for this book are: “Driving me crazy” by Sam Adams, “Two is better than one” by Boys like Girls and “Need you know” by Lady Antebellum.
    ~What song can you imagine appearing on Kai's Road Trip Playlist?
    “Lips of an Angel” by Hinder
    ~What actor/actresses can you picture playing Kai & Anna?
    Kai- Ian Somerhalder
    Anna- Kaley Cuoco


  157. What song makes you think of Sweet Evil?

    "Animal" by Neon Trees


  158. Wendy! Finally it's ARC time. It feels like it's been forever that we've been waiting for this one. Well, the one song that makes me think of Sweet Evil is Florence + The Machine's What the Water Gave Me. Whenever I hear it, instant Kai swoondown! xoxo

  159. Can not wait for Sweet Peril! I don't know about Anna but Dylan O'Brien should be Kai. He is smoking hot. SMOKING, I tell you!

    Thanks for the giveaway.

  160. I cannot wait to read Sweet Peril!!!

    The actress I picture to play Anna is the adorable Skyler Samuels. She definitely has the sweet, innocent "girl-next-door" vibe. It would be fun to see her get edgier as Anna changes in the series. She was great in The Nine Lives of Chloe King which had a supernatural story line with a love triangle.

    For Kai...maybe Douglas Booth who was born in London and has a sexy, mysterious “bad boy” musician vibe. His next role will be Romeo in this year’s movie adaption of Romeo & Juliet.

    1. Thank you for doing a giveaway Wendy! I live in the USA.

  161. Oh man that teaser is definitely HOTT! I'm so looking forward to the next book. I think Wicked Game by Chris Isaak is definitely a song that fits with Sweet Evil. Come on, the song sounds so much like Kai - "I never dreamed that I'd meet somebody like you. And I never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you...No, I don't want to fall in love with you." Come on that is so Kai.

    I would love an ARC(USA) but I just can't wait till Sweet Peril comes out and the story continues. It's on both my wish lists for Amazon and Goodreads.

  162. What song can you imagine appearing on Kai's Road Trip Playlist?

    "Bad Case of Lovin You" Robert Palmer


  163. Hmm...I kinda always imaged Kai as a old school Nirvana fan...Come as You Are.

    I'm in the US!

  164. What song can you imagine appearing on Kai's Road Trip Playlist?

    Let Me Love You by Ne-Yo.


  165. What song makes you think of Sweet Evil?

    I knew you were trouble by Taylor Swift


  166. What song makes you think of Sweet Evil?

    I knew you were trouble by Taylor Swift


  167. First, I just want to say that I seriously can't wait for Sweet Peril, especially after all these teasers!!

    What actor/actresses can you picture playing Kai & Anna?
    I've always imagined Meaghan Martin as Anna and Tom Sturridge as Kai (he's British and HOTT, definitely extra T worthy).

    Also, I think "Treacherous' by Taylor Swift fits Anna and Kai really well. Their love is dangerous, but they can't help their feelings. "This slope is treacherous
    This path is reckless/This slope is treacherous/And I I I like it/I can't decide if it's a choice/Getting swept away/I hear the sound of my own voice/Asking you to stay...Your name has echoed through my mind/And I just think you should think you should know/That nothing safe is worth the drive."

    Sexy and I know it
    LOL, I can't wait for Sweet Peril!!<333

    Stephanie Ehmann

  169. "We're like fire and gasoline, I'm no good for you, you're no good for me"~ tomorrow by Chris Young. As for who to play Anna...Hayden Panettiere! Blonde hair, southern accent all accounted for! Judy Zhou, International :D

  170. Try by Pink reminds of Sweet Evil, I don't know why though, lol. It just fits for me.

    Thanks for the giveaway Wendy!

    I'm in the US, btw!

    Confessions of a Vi3tBabe
    Deity Island

  171. Although Kai is not quite angel (but Anna is!) the song 'Angel with a Shotgun' by the Cab totally reminds me of Sweet Evil! :D the lyrics totally relate with the story line.

    I think that Kai would also have 'Angel with a Shotgun' on his Road Trip Playlist, since it's got that awesome vibe to it. But any song with an epic drum solo in it would be on his playlist!(In fact I wouldn't be surprised if he was the soloist or if the band was Lascivious!)

    International! :D
    Thanks so much for this amazing give away! Super excited for Sweet Peril!

  172. Wendy thanks so much for this lovely teaser and contest!!

    One song that reminds me of Kai and Anna's relationship is "Clarity" by Zedd. It describes their relationship perfectly, and I love how unique-sounding it is. I also imagine "Shattered" by OAR on Kai's long drive home after leaving Anna at the airport. It's so beautifully sad, and I think it explains how he's feeling on that drive perfectly.

    I'm Angelica Luevano from the US, please pick me! :)

  173. Hi! I'm an American fan and the song I always think of is for Anna and it is Angel With A Shotgun by The Cab. It makes me think about the duty the angels trusted her with and all her other responsibilities. Sweet Evil is one of my favorite books and I'm ridiculously excited for the other two books! :)

  174. Hi, Wendy!

    Q: What actor/actresses can you picture playing Kai & Anna?

    A: I'm gonna go with AnnaSophia Robb for Anna. She's so much like I imagined Anna in The Carrie Diaries. Minus all the 80's clothes, of course.

    And for Kaidan.. here's where it gets tough. I'd like someone like Ed Westwick. He could totally pull it off. Or maybe Nicholas Hoult; his eyes are so expresive. And they are both english so the accent would be natural..

    Oh! I'm in the International category, by the way. Thanks for the giveaway :)

  175. The song that reminds me of Sweet Evil is, All I Wanted by Paramore. I hear this song and it totally reminds me of Kai and Anna.
    That was an AWESOME teaser!!!
    I'm for the US:)

    What song can you imagine appearing on Kai's Road Trip Playlist?

    "Bad Case of Lovin You" Robert Palmer


    ((this is me)) that account was messin up

  177. Okay, this is dorky, but the first song that came to mind when I thought about Sweet Evil (Kai and Anna specifically) was Toxic Love by Brittney Spears. xD Thanks for the giveaway! And I'm from the US!

  178. OMG!!! Awesome teaser!!! *sighs* I love kai!!Thank you so much!!
    One song that reminds me of Kai is Demons by Imagine Dragons. It fits the image I have of him. I think that will be the kind of thing he will tell anna.

    I'm Zitmarie from Puerto Rico.

  179. Thanks Wendy for including us International readers :-)
    The song that makes me think of Sweet Evil is My Happiness by Powderfinger ...
    or maybe Creep by Radiohead ...that is a song Kai would choose I think ...

    International :-)

  180. I'm so excited- all the more esp. after that teaser! :)

    And now that I think about it, Sleeping with Sirens' songs fit Sweet Evil so much- heck, even their name fits! ;) They're a post hardcore rock band, and their songs are so catchy, and I can totally imagine Kaidan playing the drums in this band! :) They have this song, "A Trophy Fathers Trophy Son" that goes:

    Father, father, tell me where have you been?
    Its been hell not having you here
    I've been missing you so bad
    And you don't seem to care
    When I go to sleep at night, you're not there
    When I go to sleep at night, do you care?

    This totally fits Anna's (heck, even Kai's) situation, no? ;)

    And another song, "Fire", goes:

    Sometimes they say this should feel something like fire
    'Til it burns you and you can't
    No, you can't remain the same
    Stay the same, although you know

    And "Four Corners and Two Sides":
    They say I'm a sinner, but nobody knows
    You only do what you're told, you better hope that you're right

    Hee, everyone knows, Kai. Everyone knows. ;)

    And my personal favorite: "Postcards and Polaroids" Look:

    Before I go, oh oh oh oh oh
    Let me remind you what you're waiting for
    Before you go, oh oh oh oh oh
    Could you love me just a little bit more?
    One more time

    Hey, hey darling, its so damn hard to say goodbye
    You know I'll try my hardest, I'll never change who I am inside
    Life's so hard and it's gotta be standing in front of me
    Your clothes on the floor, and your eyes are on me
    Yeah, tonight's all we got, keep your arms right here were it should be
    Keep 'em wrapped around me

    Seriously, you should check this band out. The lead singer's a guy (who almost reminds me of Kaidan, when his hair is shorter), and his voice is so amazing. He's some kind of soprano, so yeah, you can just imagine how high the notes can reach. :) Heaven for your ears!

    I think I kinda got carried away with the lyrics, but I really think their two albums "Lets cheer to this" and "With Ears To See, And Eyes To Hear" fit Sweet Evil- and Kai's songs- so much!

    And US! :)

  181. Greetings Wendy. I'm excited about the chance to win an arc. Thanks for the giveaway and I'm international. Congrats on all your success. I'm editing my novel so I'm still steps away from searching for an agent. But from one writer to another, glad you made it Wendy. Also best of luck with your upcoming contemporary novel Flirting with Maybe.

    Q: What song makes you think of Sweet Evil?

    Wildest Moments by Jessica Ware. Seriously there's nothing mild about the twist Anna's life takes in this series.

    Q: What actor/actresses can you picture playing Kai & Anna?

    For Anna I pick Chloe Grace Mortez. From Hugo to Kickass she proves that she's a real chameleon and can play various roles.

    Kaiden is a hard sell but I'll go with Devon Werkheiser. He's 21 now but you might remember his as Ned Bigby from Ned's School Survival Guide. He's grown a lot since then and did well in ep8 season 8 of Criminal Minds. I believe he's an underdog who'd do the role justice if given the chance. I believe we can both remember how Toby McGuire was doubted when it was first released he'd play Spiderman. Look how he proved them wrong.


  182. You are super awesome Wendy to have such an amazing giveaway and making it international! I love, love the teaser.. I wish I could read Sweet Peril now! Anyway, what song makes me think of Sweet Evil you say? That would be "Crawl(Carry Me Through)" by Superchick - it reminds me a lot of Ana and Kaidan's relationship and everything that goes with it.
    So, thanks again and I wish you all the best! :)

    ~ Diana Grace (INT)

  183. What a wonderful teaser! The song that I heard when reading Sweet Evil was I Will Wait by Mumford and Sons. I am in the US, and can't wait to read Sweet Perill.

  184. I can totally picture Gemma Ward as Anna. Gemma has such an innocent face, kind of like how I pictured Anna to be, but is totally capable of kicking butt. :P As for Kaiden, I could totally see Milo Ventimiglia playing him. Because he's sexy. Hahaha.

    Yay for living in the US! :D


    Thanks, Wendy!! The teasers are asdfghjkl; so awesome! I'm in love all over again! xx~Megan

  185. Hi Wendy!
    For me, one of the songs on Kai's Roadtrip Playlist is Sex on the Radio by Good Charlotte. It just fits everything. :)

    -Sharmaine Pamela [International]

    PS. I am close to hyperventilating as I'm posting this. I'm so excited for it to come out! Wade Poezyn is my fave model. Hngggg! :D

  186. I'm Gabi and I'm from the US. The song that reminds me of Sweet Evil is Fall by Emily Hearn.

    Thanks for the suderduper giveaway!!

  187. Honestly, when I think of Sweet Evil I think of Demons by Radioactive Dragons. I mean every has their demons and the part where it goes:
    When you feel my heat
    Look into my eyes
    It’s where my demons hide
    It’s where my demons hide
    Don’t get too close
    It’s dark inside
    It’s where my demons hide
    It’s where my demons hide

    I mean it kinda reminds me of how Kai pushed Anna away.

    SOOO there's been this thing bugging me.. Is Sweet Peril gonna be New Adult? With all the teasers it makes it sound like it will go more in-depth to their temptations and I really want it to still be Young Adult!! :(

    P.S. I LOVE YOU!!! You're an amazing author and I can't wait for Sweet Peril!!!!

    I'm U.S. and you can reach me through Twitter!

  188. A song that I think is fitting for Sweet Evil is Heartbreaker by p!nk.

    Also agree i knew you were trouble by taylor swift is very fitting!

    Awesome teaser i want the book now!! (: Sweet evil is one of my faves !!!

  189. The two songs that remind me of Sweet Evil are "Leave out all the rest" by Linkin Park, and "Angel with a Shotgun" by the Cab. I absolutely can not wait for the next book, im dying here! and thank you so much for those teasers, damn!(: hahaha

    -Marisa (US)

  190. Thanks for the giveaway wendy!!! It's international! :) You're so awesome! And the teaser... IT'S JUST ....I JUST CAN'T..... ARGHHHH !!! ME LUVIN IT XD. the song that makes me think of sweet evil...hmm... I actually have a few. Which are bittersweet by ellie goulding, lost in paradise by evanescence and distance by christina perri. I think the song that really hits me is bittersweet because whenever i hear the song, the thought of kai and anna pops in my head. Which then causes my to fangirl and crave for sweet peril badly X_X . Thanks for the wonderful giveaway wendy! I LOVE YOU <3

    Khairina- I'm international :)
