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…

White Hot Kiss - New Cover

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

Book Review: Fall With Me by Jennifer L. Armentrout



Eleven months ago, bartender and weird-shirt-wearing extraordinaire Roxy and Officer Reece Anders had a one night stand. Well, kind of. She’s been in love with him since she was fifteen, and he wishes that night they shared never happened. She’s sworn him off forever, but the past and future collide, forcing her to rely on the one man who broke her heart not once, but twice.
Her best friend since birth has been in a long-term care facility since he became a victim of a hate crime years ago, and the person who put him in there is out of prison and wanting to make amends with him and Roxy. She’s not sure she has room for forgiveness in her and when she begins to receive frightening messages and is on the receiving end of escalating violence, she thinks she knows who is to blame. The man who already destroyed one life already.
But Reece isn’t convinced. The threats are too personal, and even if Roxy doesn’t believe him, he’s not willing to let anyone hurt her. Including himself. He’s already messed up more than once when it comes to Roxy and he’s not going to let history repeat itself.


Yet another case of JLA goodness. Fall With Me definitely made me fall and I honestly think I liked this book more than Stay With Me, even if both books had similar elements. Despite my issues with Roxy, which I’ll discuss, something about their chemistry and the suspense aspect of the book just clicked for me and I flew through this book. I genuinely liked Reece and Roxy as a couple and I liked watching their relationship unfold. There’s just something about a cop, who is protective and all alpha-male by nature (at least in books), that totally appeals to me.

So yeah, the suspense element really caught my attention, which is surprising because that plot line was hardly anything new and I figured everything out way before Roxy got a clue, but it was just exciting to read and I kept on reading to see how things would work itself out and waiting impatiently, in a good way, for the big reveal. The book has a pretty crazy psycho running amuck around town, and I just like those kinds of books for some reason.

I loved Reece so much. He’s an all-around good guy and I admired his persistence when it came to Roxy. He has some inner demons that weren’t really explored, but you still get a good sense of his character. He was very patient, considerate, and understanding with Roxy and I enjoyed their conversations and the fact that their families are basically all old friends. The scenes of them with Roxy’s family were hilarious and just fun to read. Their intimate scenes were, naturally, hot as hell. Oh, and did I mention the guy makes a mean omelet? Because, oh yeah…he does.

Roxy, on the other hand, had her ups and downs. I loved how great of a friend she was to Charlie and empathized with her situation. I had mixed feelings about how she handled Henry, but I understood her actions. Her biggest flaw was not being able to let go and move on, which I used to have problems with growing up, so I got it and didn’t fault her for it too much. I also loved that she wears glasses and her love of humorous t-shirts was cute. She had a bit of spunk to her and her inner monologues weren’t so bad. What really bugged me about her was how she kept pushing Reece away. If you know my tastes, you know I don’t like it when characters do that, especially if it’s over something as silly or uncontrollable as Roxy’s reasons. Granted, it wasn’t that big of an issue and Reece stood his ground, I didn’t care for her way of thinking. I also didn’t like how flippant she was about the crazy and strange things that were happening to her. I just couldn’t believe how she didn’t take it seriously and how long she let it go on.

As good as JLA books are, and you know how much I love my JLA, I have to say that I’m getting a little tired of all the pop culture references and cheesy one-liners. I know I’ve said that I loved pop culture references in the past, but I think I like it better when it’s every now and then, especially from one given author. I guess since I’ve read every JLA book to date, these things tend to be a bit too repetitive to the point where it’s like her fall-back formula. Sure, that’s just Jen’s writing style and I love it, but it gets old fast. For example, with the one-liners, “holy baby Jesus in a manger” or something akin to that, while funny, gets played out after so many of her characters use it.

Anyways, that’s not specific to just Fall With Me, of course, but just thought I’d put that out there. Maybe that’s just me and the fact that I seriously read too many books nowadays, especially too many contemporary romances. Either way, Fall With Me was a great romance read with a good dose of suspense/thriller. Fans of the series will also love seeing all the previous couples as well as get clues to the remaining two couples. JLA just knows how to entertain through her writing and characters and this book was no different. I definitely loved this and can’t wait for more from this series.
