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.
Only Jennifer L. Armentrout could make gargoyles and demons look sexy! Since the first page I was instantly hooked and fell in love with all the characters. Being a fan of Jen's I knew instantly that I would love this book! There is action, swoon-worthy romances, and White Hot Kiss will leave you wanting more. Like many books of Jen's there is a love triangle that will make you choose who will win Layla's heart. This is one book everyone must add to their list because it is an amazing read!
Layla was a great character! I love Jennifer's main characters and they are always kicking butt. She is always trying to help. Layla is having a hard time trying to fit in with her Warden family since she is half gargoyle and have demon. Most of the family doesn't trust her because of her abilities. She goes to school and craves for a normal life and become more than friends with Zayne. Then enters Roth, things get really complicated. Layla has to choose between everything she thought was good or bad. She is learning more about herself and her demon part.
I absolutely loved White Hot Kiss and its a little different than reading Jen's other series. This book is a favorite of mine because of the two love interests, a war starts and you do not know which boy to choose between. I am a Team Roth fan because well Roth is hot and gorgeous. I thought I would be a Zayne fan but Roth just stole my heart. Zayne is a normal book boyfriend that everyone falls for (which there was moments) I love both of them but after you read White Hot Kiss you will know why I love Roth. Zayne is Layla's best friend and will protect Layla. It is really difficult to choose which one!!
White Hot Kiss was a book that I finished in a day! I did not put it down and its a good thing to because that story line was addicting and will leave you hanging on your seat. Jennifer L. Armentrout makes romance steamy and heart-wrenching since her characters are so likable. I am excited to see what is going to happen with the next book where the story will go and the romance. I want to re-read any of Jennifer's book over and over because she know how to write amazing stories. She is the queen of writing and I will read any of her books! White Hot Kiss was addictive story!
This is a must read for everyone!! It will blow you away and leave you craving for more!! The wait starts for Stone Cold Touch!!! A Big thank you to Harlequin Teen for the advance copy and making my day when I got the email!! So excited for any of Jen's books!!
