Book Review: White Hot Kiss by Jennifer Armentrout

White Hot Kiss ( The Dark Elements book, #1)
by Jennifer Armentrout
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance

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.

Oh Daemon you've got competition...Roth is about to take over ;)

Jennifer L.A. has done it again, she put a spell on me with her new YA Paranormal series, The Dark Elements. This series has again all the perfect ingredients to get me hooked. In her cocktail, she mixed Gargoyles, Demons, a bit of young innocence, sex appeal, and her typical Armentrout signature. I'm hooked; I fell for a Demon and even though I'm sad her Lux series comes to an end I'm thrilled to have this serial to read.

Layla raised among Wardens/Gargoyles hasn't had an easy life, due to the fact that she's half demon and one kiss or being too close to a Warden could mean the end for him/her. Sure thing, this poor girl is lonely and has a hopeless crush on Zayne.

As if her world isn't complicated enough, Roth, a Demon appears and is about to turn her world up-side down -positive as negatively. He knows more about her and her 'history' and why she's the way she's.

Let me tell you it straight: IT WAS FLIPPING AWESOME.
I was swooning like crazy about Roth; the way he talked made Layla feel, just about everything.

Let me introduce Roth the Demon:

"I'm a demon, Layla. What I see in your eyes and what I sense from your body is something I will take. Make no mistake. I'll give you one chance."

"I apologized for calling you a prude. I'll even apologize for yesterday. I scared you. I threw your cell in the toilet, See, I was raised in Hell. You could say I'm socially awkward."

He made me laugh with the stuff he said but he also very much made me tear up at the end.

I know for many this book is a typical shallow YA PNR book, but I can't fully describe what it's, Armentrout's YA are my favorite of them all. They are light but also captivating; funny but emotional; shallow but with deep hidden meanings. So yeah I adore her books/writing.

She literally puts a spell on me every time I read one of her PNR books and every time I get lost in the worlds she creates.

I've a new favorite Demon: "I lost myself the moment I found you."



Ps: The series is complete! This is NOT a love triangle and the prequel is optional....

BITTER SWEET LOVE (#0.5) ➜ click cover
This is a prequel and the story of Jasmin and Dez (both Gargoyles). It's the perfect introduction for Armentrout's new paranormal series. We get a good idea who's who and the war between Demon and Gargoyles. Towards the end Layla (from White Hot Kiss) will be introduced, so it's definitely worth your read, but not a must. I loved it!!
