Goodreads Archive Review: White Hot Kiss by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Publication Date: 02/25/2014
Audience: Young Adult
Genre: 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.
Picture and Summary from Goodreads

Gah, JLA sure knows how to leave a girl hanging!
I love having authors who I know will not disappoint me with their books. Jennifer Armentrout is definitely one of those authors for me, I seriously have not come across a book by her that I dont end up loving.
In White Hot Kiss, through the eyes of Layla, we are introduced to a whole new world.  A world in which Gargoyles are real. And badass. And hottt. Enter not going to happen childhood crush Zayne aka hottie number one.  Layla has been raised with Wardens (gargoyles).  She has her own backstory and skills, I like her and I feel she makes a strong MC. She is half demon half warden but she has been raised by the wardens to hate demons.  In the Wardens eyes demons are the embodiment of all things evil. Makes since.
Enter impossible love interest Roth aka hottie number number two aka most important hottie.

Let's just get this out of the way now.  I am Team Roth, all the way.  It better happen.
Obviously the romance is hot and steamy but yes there is a triangle.  While Roth is the epitome of schmexiness, Zayne is the boy next door.  The crushing after Zayne is more angsty and jealousy filled which I find fun to read.  Apparently I like self pity. The romance makes up a big part of the story but there is also a lot of things Layla finds out about herself that lead her to find out that the Wardens haven't been telling her everything. Someone seems to have a hidden agenda.
The writing and pace of the story is greatly done. I easily lost myself in the pages and when I came back up at the end I scrambled to find out when the next book will be out.
October. Freaking October.
Since reading White Hot Kiss and writing this review I had the chance to read Stone Cold Touch....sooo worth the wait. Keep an eye out for the review!
