Book Review: White Hot Kiss by Jennifer L. Armentrout

White Hot Kiss by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Published February 25th 2014 by Harlequin Teen
Kindle Edition, 400 Pages
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.
My Thoughts:
Jennifer L Armentrout is slowly but surely becoming one of my favourite authors. Up until this year I hadn’t read anything by her but now I’m onto my fifth book and I must say, I’ve loved all that I’ve read by her so far. Isn’t it great when you discover a new author and immediately enjoy their work? I cant decide which series of hers I like the most but White Hot Kiss is definitely one of her best, I cannot wait for the next installment in the series.

I was over the moon when my request for this was accepted on Netgalley a couple of months back. I’d heard nothing but good things about the book and thought it had an interesting premise. I’d been putting off reading it but decided now was the time to pick it up. One thing I love about Jennifer’s writing is the fact that its so easy to read. Once I got into this book I absolutely devoured it, I probably would’ve read it in one sitting if I didn’t have anything else to do. It was simply impossible to put this book down.

A half demon, half gargoyle female protagonist with a lethal kiss, what more could you want from a paranormal? Oh yeah, I forgot, this is a JLA book we’re talking about so of course there is plenty of man candy to sink your teeth into. I’m torn between whom I like better, Roth or Zayne? Zayne or Roth? Both? I don’t know how she does it but Jennifer always manages to create desirable characters that you hate to love. 

If you’re already a fan of Jennifer then I know you’re going to love this book as it is on par with her previous work. But if you haven’t read anything by her yet then I’d recommend that you start with this series. The plotline is well thought out with explosive chemistry, laugh out loud humor and an ending that’ll leave you wanting more. There are some serious WTF moments throughout the book but don’t worry too much, I’m sure it’ll all work out in the second installment…hopefully.

Stone Cold Touch—the second book in this series—will be released later this year on October 28th so you have plenty of time to devour this book as I did. And for those of you who have already read White Hot Kiss; I’d like to hear your thoughts on the book and whether you’re also excited for October.

      I'd definitely recommend any of her books to a first time reader. As from what I've read so far it seems she can do no wrong. You'll have to let me know your thoughts on it if you do end up reading it.
