EVERY LAST BREATH Synopsis:

Some loves will last ’til your dying breath

Every choice has consequences—but seventeen-year-old Layla faces tougher choices than most. Light or darkness. Wickedly sexy demon prince Roth, or Zayne, the gorgeous, protective Warden she never thought could be hers. Hardest of all, Layla has to decide which side of herself to trust.

Layla has a new problem, too. A Lilin—the deadliest of demons—has been unleashed, wreaking havoc on those around her…including her best friend. To keep Sam from a fate much, much worse than death, Layla must strike a deal with the enemy while saving her city—and her race—from destruction.

Torn between two worlds and two different boys, Layla has no certainties, least of all survival, especially when an old bargain comes back to haunt them all. But sometimes, when secrets are everywhere and the truth seems unknowable, you have to listen to your heart, pick a side—and then fight like hell…

“Armentrout is a major talent…I just can’t stop reading!”

New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter

White Hot Kiss - New Cover

Amazon ** Barnes and Noble ** BAM ** iBooks ** IndieBound ** Kobo ** Walmart

 

WHITE HOT KISS synopsis:

One kiss could be the last.

Seventeen-year-old Layla just wants to be normal. But with a kiss that kills anything with a soul, she’s anything but normal. Half demon, half gargoyle, Layla has abilities no one else possesses.

Raised among the Wardens—a race of gargoyles tasked with hunting demons and keeping humanity safe—Layla tries to fit in, but that means hiding her own dark side from those she loves the most. Especially Zayne, the swoon-worthy, incredibly gorgeous and completely off-limits Warden she’s crushed on since forever.

Then she meets Roth—a tattooed, sinfully hot demon who claims to know all her secrets. Layla knows she should stay away, but she’s not sure she wants to—especially when that whole no-kissing thing isn’t an issue, considering Roth has no soul.

But when Layla discovers she’s the reason for the violent demon uprising, trusting Roth could not only ruin her chances with Zayne…it could brand her a traitor to her family. Worse yet, it could become a one-way ticket to the end of the world.

Stone Cold Touch - New Cover

Amazon ** Barnes and Noble ** iBooks ** IndieBound ** Kobo ** BAM

 

STONE COLD TOUCH Synopsis:

Every touch has its price

Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life—no easy task for a seventeen-year-old who’s pretty sure things can’t get worse. Her impossibly gorgeous best friend, Zayne, is forever off-limits thanks to the mysterious powers of her soul-stealing kiss. The Warden clan that has always protected her is suddenly keeping dangerous secrets. And she can barely think about Roth, the wickedly hot demon prince who understood her in ways no one else could.

But sometimes rock bottom is only the beginning. Because suddenly Layla’s powers begin to evolve, and she’s offered a tantalizing taste of what has always been forbidden. Then, when she least expects it, Roth returns, bringing news that could change her world forever. She’s finally getting what she always wanted, but with hell literally breaking loose and the body count adding up, the price may be higher than Layla is willing to pay…

“Constantly entertaining…the narrative sizzles with as much tension as romance.”

Kirkus Reviews on White Hot Kiss

And the Prequel Novella, BITTER SWEET LOVE…

 

Bitter Sweet Love - New Cover

Amazon ** Barnes and Noble ** iBooks ** BAM ** Kobo

 

BITTER SWEET LOVE Synopsis:

In a sizzling prequel novella to her new series The Dark Elements, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout draws readers into the extraordinary, irresistible world of Wardens and demons.

Dez wasn’t just Jasmine’s crush. A gargoyle Warden like Jas, he helped her come to terms with her destiny—fending off demons and maintaining the balance between good and evil. He was her everything…right until the moment he disappeared without a trace. It didn’t help that Jas’s father had just announced that she and Dez would one day be mated. Hard not to take that personally.

And now he’s back, three years older, ten times hotter, ready to pick up exactly where they left off. But Jas isn’t taking that risk again. Dez has seven days to meet all her conditions and earn back her trust. Seven days filled with terrifying danger and sweet temptation. Seven days to win her heart—or shatter it all over again…

“With her signature flare for combining humor, romance and action, Armentrout weaves a fast-paced read that will have readers’ hearts racing in more ways than one. Like Armentrout’s previous heroines, Jasmine is fun and full of attitude, while Dez is as snarky as he is sexy. This is a must read for new and old fans alike!” –RT Book Reviews

Review: White Hot Kiss (The Dark Elements #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

One kiss could be the last.

Seventeen-year-old Layla just wants to be normal. But with a kiss that kills anything with a soul, she’s anything but normal. Half demon, half gargoyle, Layla has abilities no one else possesses.

I pre-ordered White Hot Kiss months ago, knowing right off the bat that I would love this series because: 1. It’s Jennifer Armentrout 2. It’s about a gargoyles/demons combo 3. I LOVE THE LUX SERIES SO I REMAIN LOYAL TO THIS AUTHOR. Needless to say, I was super excited to finally start reading this book! I did get the novella as well, I’m just one of those readers who’s really bad about reading novellas before series or really reading them at all, so I haven’t had the chance to read it yet. Any thoughts on the novella Bitter Sweet Love? Whose read it?? Comment below 🙂

My Review

The Plot: The story line in general in White Hot Kiss was unique in and of itself. It added a twist to demons/gargoyles that I had never encountered before. Layla (the female lead) is the odd man out with being a combination of the two (half demon, half Warden or gargoyle). With no place to really fit in, the Wardens take her under their wing (hah literally) where she is constantly scrutinized for being half demon and unable to morph into a full on Warden (guardian angel divine being type thing). As certain demons begin to surface “topside” and strange events occur around Layla, the truth comes out about who she truly is. In her struggle to escape her fate she has the dark yet totally gorgeous and endearing Upper Level Demon Roth to help her and of course stir up feelings as well! And thus a twisted (yet hot) romance ensues…

All of these factors made for a fast paced story, filled with unforeseen developments, desperate situations and an intricate plot line that will leave you on the edge of your seat with your face glued to the book (in my case Kindle) for hours at a time.

The Romance: As events play out and Layla digs deeper into her past, Roth is alongside her all the way. So naturally feelings grow between the two. Roth is one of the few whom Layla actually can be intimate with since he is a demon and doesn’t have a soul that is susceptible to being sucked out as any other human would.  Thus, everything romantic is completely new to her and that doesn’t escape Roth’s attention. Though Layla attempts to ignore her stirring feelings for Roth at first, she can’t deny how she feels for very long. Let’s just say, things get pretty heated between the two of them. Their romance was the PERFECT balance of witty banter and adorable. But I would expect no less from JLA!

Layla’s Character: Yet another great thing Jennifer Armentrout creates in her writing is the perfect female lead. One who is fierce in her determination, and steadfast in her will to get sh** done the way she feels is best to do it, which means without always letting the man take all the credit while she sits on the sidelines crying. Layla was ideal in every way as well as the perfect narrator!

Overall Thoughts: White Hot Kiss had its own individuality that made for a page turning romantic suspense journey (could I throw in any more adjectives?…eh.. probably). By the time the ending rolled around, my heart was pumping and I was up waay past my bedtime. There was quite the development in the last couple chapters that left me soo ready for more, but also very interested to see where the story will take me next. I would definitely recommend White Hot Kiss to any fans of paranormal romance, and especially to those who already enjoy reading Jennifer Armentrout’s books!
