Review: Stone Cold Touch by Jennifer Armentrout

Stone Cold Touch (The Dark Elements #2)
by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Genre: YA Paranormal/Supernatural Romance


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….

Read my review for book 1, White Hot Kiss, here!

"I lost myself the moment I found you."

With those words Roth, the demon Crown Prince of Hell, wiggled his way into my heart and didn't let go! My gut feeling told me from the very first pages that Roth is the man for Layla - the hybrid, half demon, half Warden. He accepts her how she is; she can be free with him, no boundaries, and no denying. He makes her feel alive and happy - carefree even.  So you can imagine after sacrificing himself so Zayne could live, Layla's life wasn't the same anymore (and mine *sniffs*). She was grieving badly even though they hadn't put a label on their relationship, Layla knew deep down, Roth being gone, there's a big void in her heart that no-one could fill.

OMG! She's done it again....J. Armentrout put a spell on me with her fantastic new YA paranormal series. I was hooked right when she published the pre-novella; right here and then I knew this new series will be a success. She proved after deeply loving the Lux books that she's the queen of YA paranormal/supernatural books for me. Her books are on auto-click and so far she hasn't disappointed me. 

In her Dark Element series she puts her readers through an emotional roller coaster, letting us experience and feel for Layla's torn feelings. Who should she pick? Save and handsome Zayne or fun, daring, alluring Roth? It's a tough choice. We are all bidding our bets since book 1, White Hot Kiss, with who she'll end up with. J. Armentrout crushed our fan-girling hearts at the end of White Hot Kiss and I wanted to throw my kindle away...but, she's as wicked as her books.

In Stone Cold Touch we see how Layla and Zayne get a bit too cozy (for my taste) even though she can't forget Roth. Her feelings are all over the place and all of a sudden Zayne is more than just a big brother, a secrete crush, her first love.... now she's allowed to taste him; feel him; show her feelings. But this new-found happiness is short lived (thank goodness!!) because Roth is back!! He's back with an agenda because some serious stuff has gone wrong and a Lilin got created -BAD NEWS, ladies.

Now here she is...torn between two man - both loving her deeply.

"Love is a strange creature one thinks has a grasp on and understanding of, only to discover later that it was only the barest taste of the real thing."

Sighs... this book kept me on edge because Roth is one hard guy to read and Armentrout put some secrets in the story that got later on revealed...she had me worried!! Every word, every action from Roth had his purpose and Armentrout weaved such details perfectly into her story - I was hooked, spellbound even. 

"I want you so badly it's like a hunger that gnaws at me endlessly. It doesn't go away."  Me = goner!

If you haven't gotten the chance to dive into her new series then you're missing out; it's top notch recommendation material! I can't wait to read book #3 and in case you didn't see it, YOU CAN VOTE with who Layla should end up with. Well you all know my choice (you better support it...JUST KIDDING, really): ROTH! But seriously give your vote because after that Jennifer will write book 3 - better pick the right dude ;) 

!!!! Vote here !!!!
