Huh, gargoyles exist Ok.Layla is 17 years old She is beautiful, but doesn t really consider herself that pretty I mean, Layla only looks like an elf princess What s so special about that Zayne said I looked like the long lost sister of the elf in Lord of the Rings That was a huge confidence booster Sigh. Sigh, indeed Fuck, it must be so horrible to go through life all blonde and elfin, looking like Legolas sister Tough existence, man To top it off, she s in love with a gorgeous Warden guy Zayne who only sees her as a sister A really hot sister with whom he loves going on coffee dates.Layla is special She is half Demon, half Warden She looks like a human and she cannot shift into a monster like stone gargoyle form because she is a half blood Therefore, Layla is half blood, all beautiful Special without the ugly side effects of being a gargoyle like Guardian.Layla is an orphan oh hello there, trope She has amnesia trope She doesn t know anything about her birth or her parents trope Her Warden guardians keep everything a secret from her trope One day, while stupidly chasing down a minor demon into a dark alley, Layla nearly gets killed She is rescued by a dark, handsome, sexy Upper Level Demon His name is Roth He has a snake named Bambi I don t mean to say his penis is named Bambi, I mean he has a snake tattoo that comes to life whose name is Bambi No not a mass, but a huge freaking snake at least ten feet long and as wide as I was.The thing spun toward me, rising halfway up Its eyes burned an unholy red Don t be scared of Bambi, the demon said She s only curious and maybe a little bit hungry The thing was named BambiSexy Demon Roth starts showing up everyfuckingwhere Layla goes She goes to school He s there He shows up whenever she needs help, like a demonic guardian angel.Where I m from, we call that a fucking stalker Layla knows that She trusts him anywayYou don t I was following you Oh, so you re a demon and a stalker I swallowed hard Because that s not creepy or anythingOh, he s not just a stalker, he s a pervert, too He leaned in again, his lips brushing the curve of my cheek Let me suggestappropriate places I have this piercingOh, wait, there s a reason he s following her Layla is special She was born to a special destiny, and he was meant to protect her Roth let out a low breath Your mother was known by many namesAnd because of that, you re on Hell s Most Wanted ListNaturally, Layla is inclined to believe the stranger she just met over the people who have raised her for the past 10 years Roth and Layla kiss, they flirt, they go out on dates They spend nights together, staring longingly into each other s eyes They go to bed together but they just talk, because demons are such gentlemen that way.What is The Lesser Key of SolomonMore importantly, will the two hot, gorgeous men in her life ever stop fighting over Layla Zayne s grip relaxed Shut up Roth came to his feet fluidly I don t think I like your tone And I don t like your face, Zayne returned.The amount of testosterone the two were throwing off was ridiculous. The Girl Hate There s room for only one good girl in this book, and that girl is Layla Layla is virginal, pure Layla and her best friend Stacey tease each other by calling each other names Stacey is, of course, presented as the slut, the hobag, while innocent Layla is the virgin Stacey only blinked, looking like she was coming out of some kind of bizarre trance I scribbled hobag across her notes She laughed and wrote virgin ice princess across mine. Even an insult, a tease, is designed to make Layla look good against her slutty best friend Stacey.Stacey is sex on wheels Stacey started to tug her shirt up as a shield, but must ve realized there wasn t enough material there. She dresses sexily, and the book presents it to us as a bad thing Stacey was saying as she threw herself into her seat I didn t sneak out of the house dressed like this for no good reason No doubt I eyed her short skirt and then her cleavage We wouldn t want your boobs to go to wasteStacey constantly makes sexual jokes and gesturesGreat Stacey chirped, backing off and gesturing wildly behind Roth She was doing something with her hand and mouth that I knew Roth would be oh so down for. She is presented as a good friend, but so completely hypersexualized compared to Layla Her character is insiduously presented as not as good, due to her sexualization.The other female characters in the book are either stupid sluts Eva, the glammed up hobag Mean Girl classmate or a scared female Warden never mind that she s also a badass warrior herself , or a nice, beautiful Warden girl who s meant to be hated because of her interest in Layla s first love, Zayne Danika is nice, but everything she does is seem as mean, an attack on Layla when all she wants to do is be helpful I dumped the stuff in the garbage can, shoulders stiff I m not going to jump on you and suck out your soul, if that s what you re worried about Danika gasped That s not what I meant not at all It s just that you look like you need something and I want to helpEverytime a female character outside of Layla does something remotely normal and nice, Layla snaps at her There is no room in this book for a positive female figure besides Layla.The Setting It s your traditional Urban Fantasy, with Angels, Demons, all that good stuff This book breaks no molds in the setting It is completely predictable in this sense, and that s just fine We have Fiends, we have Posers demons, heh , we have Zombies Nothing out of the ordinary.What I do not like The setting in this book is anticlimactic There are gargoyles, humans know they existand there s an odd sense of so what about it People aren t exactly freaking out There s a church rallying against Wardens Every so often the Church of God s Children held a rally against the Wardens and then made headlines They d been doing it ever since the public had found out about the Wardens existence. And that s the last we hear about it The book is so centered around Layla and Layla only, so much that the outside world becomes completely secondary and almost gathers no mention in the book.The setting itself has gaps There are Wardensgargoylesbut almost no instance of actual gargoyles in the book We rarely see the Wardens in action It sinternal politics and living with the Wardens in human form than anything else.There s also the unbelievable case of OH HUMANS KNOW ABOUT WARDENS BUT LET S HIDE THE FACT THAT DEMONS EXIST Wut The world would descend into chaos if humans knew demons were ordering their morning coffee right alongside them. Ok, so you re telling me that the world is ok with the existence of gargoyles, that stone men can come to life, but they d completely freak out if they knew about the existence of demons Wut Layla, you ve got me on my knees lyric from Eric Clapton Everyone with a dick loves Layla From hot, protective brother figure Zayne Zayne, who always wants to reassure Layla that she is good, despite what Layla thinks of herself Zayne s eyes flicked up They seemed brighter than usual You reperfect just the way you areTo schoolboy GarethWow, he is so checking you out Huh I looked at Stacey Who She glanced over her shoulder as she pulled me closer The guy you almost plowed into Gareth Richmond He s still checking you outTo evil pervert Petr who wants her body The line of his jaw hardened I didn t do anything wrong You didn t do anything wrong I told you to stop and you wouldn t You were being a tease His voice dropped low And since when do demons really get a say in anythingTo Roth Roth, who only has eyes for Layla.Oh, the love triangleI I didn t know I loved Zayne, but I didn t know what kind of love that was, and Roth I thought I could be in love with him, if given time Or maybe I already was, in a little way I don t knowIt s enjoyable, but only as brain candy If you re looking forplot,substance, I wouldn t recommend this The character development and plausibility of the plot is absolutely lacking I Could Not Finish This.I tried And then I tried someBut nope, not happening.You know what Perfection really is boring Perfection is meaningless, unrealistic and so fucking boring Armentrout tries to create perfection A perfectly all good, virginal, amazing, everyone wants to bone me, kickass heroine who faultlessly exists at the centre of the universe, while beautiful, perfectly sculpted, hot boys just orbit around her constantly It s boring And you know what else perfection i I Could Not Finish This.I tried And then I tried someBut nope, not happening.You know what Perfection really is boring Perfection is meaningless, unrealistic and so fucking boring Armentrout tries to create perfection A perfectly all good, virginal, amazing, everyone wants to bone me, kickass heroine who faultlessly exists at the centre of the universe, while beautiful, perfectly sculpted, hot boys just orbit around her constantly It s boring And you know what else perfection is It s all tell and no fucking show.So this girl Layla is amazing, right She s so SPESHUL Gifted Wonderful Beautiful We are told all of this and yet never shown examples of it She s special because she was born into it, not because she does any damn thing to prove it She s amazing, we are told, but I m still uncertain what s really so special about her in action Everyone wants this girl, we are told, but god only knows why Oh, and she s totally badass apparently Maybe I would have noticed if she wasn t so busy being saved all the time.Then there s that love triangle yawn I think the descriptions of men are often what separate the romance stories I actually enjoy from the ones that bore me to tears To be honest, there s a part of me that thinks yeah, okay, whatever with this whole male perfection malarkey These men boys are beautiful in every way They are fucking perfect Their bodies are sculpted awesomeness of muscle and unblemished skin Their hair falls perfectly in gorgeous thick waves Their faces were built by angels and they always have a sexy phrase handy to raise the heat levels in any given scene But I suppose it s hard to criticise this trend when you compare it to the airbrushed, photoshopped and hairless beauties shown in men s magazines Why shouldn t women get their fantasy perfection No reason I can see.Except it s fucking boring These men are too perfect for me to care about and fall in love with I cannot believe in that level of perfection They are male Barbie dolls, straight off the factory production line Polished, flawless, perfection I d find it easier to love them if they were ugly I d also find it easier to love them if Layla took a break from describing their physical perfection for a second and gave them a personality that goes beyond trying to get in her pants like every male in this book So many times I felt like me and Layla were having this exchangeMe Plot Layla Fuck the plot Let s make out There s also a whole bunch of slut shaming, which I assume is only supposed to emphasise the heroine s purity and goodness Even her best friend seems like a tool constantly being used to reinforce the MC s good girl persona her characterisation consists almost solely of her overt sexuality and revealing outfit choices If the female character is not Layla or a slut , then she s the evil bitch who has a thing for one of the guys Then I come to some of the ridiculous dialogue between the characters Look, I know teenagers can be annoying Insufferable, some might say Sometimes I read the diaries I wrote from when I was 15 and, oh my god, the angst It burns They re hilarious and melodramatic, of course But still, high school wasn t that long ago for me And the dialogue between the teens in this book is like what middle aged adults think teenagers might say Stacey groaned I can t believe Mr Leto wouldn t let us do our classics report on Twilight It is a classicNo one says that No one Plus, Twilight isn t even cool among high school teens Twilight, if it is talked about, is the thing girls whisper and giggle about behind their hands Kids do not announce loudly and openly that Twilight is a classic And don t even get me started on all the male posturing going on, it was laughable My favourite was this bitZayne s grip relaxed Shut up Roth came to his feet fluidly I don t think I like your tone And I don t like your face, Zayne returned.The amount of testosterone the two were throwing off was ridiculous The thing I find so funny is that this is considered some big, testosterone fuelled alpha male battle It soundslike the fights me and my sister have over music in the car Maybe you should read this book if you want a good laugh.I m sorry, guys I know a lot of people love Armentrout and this could be a light, entertaining read for you if you like all her usual elements But I find it all too formulaic, recycled and boring I wish the hype for her books was easier to resist You know what I ve figured out Jennifer L Armentrout is a panderer Meaning, she always writes the same formulaic stuff and always has to have extremely hot, six foot something bad boys that are there to solely make the main character s and the young teen female reader s panties melt.What do I have to say to that Well, first of all,Secondly, here are a few examples of her not even a little bit subtle pattern Taken from the blurb of Wait for YouCameron Hamilton is six feet and three inc You know what I ve figured out Jennifer L Armentrout is a panderer Meaning, she always writes the same formulaic stuff and always has to have extremely hot, six foot something bad boys that are there to solely make the main character s and the young teen female reader s panties melt.What do I have to say to that Well, first of all,Secondly, here are a few examples of her not even a little bit subtle pattern Taken from the blurb of Wait for YouCameron Hamilton is six feet and three inches of swoon worthy hotness, complete with a pair of striking blue eyes and a remarkable ability to make her want things she believed were irrevocably stolen from her She knows she needs to stay away from him, but Cam is freaking everywhere, with his charm, his witty banter, and that damn dimple that s just so so lickable Getting involved with him is dangerous, but when ignoring the simmering tension that sparks whenever they are around each other becomes impossible, he brings out a side of her she never knew existedTaken from the blurb of her new book WickedRen Owens is the last person Ivy expected to enter her rigidly controlled life He s six feet and three inches of temptation and swoon inducing charm With forest green eyes and a smile that s surely left a stream of broken hearts in its wake, he has an uncanny, almost unnatural ability to make her yearn for everything he has to offer But letting him in is as dangerous as hunting the cold blooded killers stalking the streets Losing the boy she loved once before had nearly destroyed her, but the sparking tension that grows between them becomes impossible for Ivy to deny Deep down, she wants she needsthan what her duty demands of her, what her past has shaped for herAnd I don t think I need to discuss the blurb of this one There s fucking two hot and I quote once , swoon worthy guys A love triangle, a.k.a the YA trope that practically screams cash grab.Okay, I get that all of this pays the bills and all, and that s fine Everyone s gotta eat Do whatcha gotta do and all that jazz But I m definitely no longer a fan of hers now that I ve got a feel of what she s all about I d rather support authors who are willing to take risks and think outside of the box e.g Eliza Crewe and Leah Raeder, upon recent memory rather than strictly follow a formula for the sole purpose of filling their pockets I m sure she s a lovely person, but as an author she brings nothing new to the table In fact, she does the exact opposite of that She pulls out all the old tricks and tries to fluff em up as best as possible To me that s just not cute It makes her seem like, as an author, she s all about the money money money.What makes me sad is that it s not just Jen here who does this Not even close This has been a trend in YA for years, and thanks to Emily May s NA Experiment, I pretty much stay away from new adult books in general due to the fact that nearly every NA book follows this formula They re there to pander, and originality is not in their vocabulary What crushes me is that this kinda shit sells They sell like hot cakes, and because of this, it s rubbing off evenon YA as well case in point, this book right here.Again, before you fans rip me apart, I have nothing against her as a person She seems like a nice lady I m strictly viewing her as an author and the clear pattern that her work shows I have to call a spade a spade.Sorry bout it.P.S Shout out to all the authors out there who do your thing and don t conform You have no idea how valuable you guys are To me, and to tons of other readers Keep on keepin on, and YOU BETTA WERK 3 My Roth, Layla and Zayne Layla is half demon, half Warden But brought up by Wardens, daily fighting her demon urges, she hates everything demon connected But what happens when her perception of demons is ruined forever I am not sure what happened here I love JLA and all her previous paranormal stories But this one did not live up to my expectations So what was my biggest problem with this book It wasn t the love triangle or the fact that heroine was perfect example of damsel in distress N My Roth, Layla and Zayne Layla is half demon, half Warden But brought up by Wardens, daily fighting her demon urges, she hates everything demon connected But what happens when her perception of demons is ruined forever I am not sure what happened here I love JLA and all her previous paranormal stories But this one did not live up to my expectations So what was my biggest problem with this book It wasn t the love triangle or the fact that heroine was perfect example of damsel in distress No It was the fact that most of the banters and dialogues between characters were super cheesy and childlish There were so many clich s it wasn t even funny And action was almost non existent or really boring It took 80% and whole week of reading until I was at least a bit hooked in the story And that was just too late for me When it comes to love triangle in this book, there was only one guy for me And after reading this book, I am Team Roth all the way Zayne who Roth was definitely the best part of this book A big contradiction Cocky and arrogant, yet caring and self sacrificing I really enjoyed those parts of the book when he was present.However, question remains Who will win Layla s heart at the end I am definitely curious to see how will this series develop and what direction will JLA take it Last couple of chapters proved, that she knows how to capture my attention with her writing She will have her chance with book 2 to either win me over or lost me forever when it comes to The Dark Elements.MORE REVIEWS ON MY BLOG Reading Is My Breathing Seems like this woman writes one book per month But I am not complaining, I love every single story she wrote so far and I cannot wait for this one if you know me, you know i love JLAs stories with nearly every fibre of my being but i was hesitant to pick this up, only because it just didnt really interest me the only reason i did is becausestorm and furya spin off comes out soon, and it actually sounds really good so here i am fortunately, this turned out better than i thought it would as someone who is still slowly, but somewhat successfully, immersing themselves into the paranormal genre, gargoyles just seemed a bit much but i if you know me, you know i love JLAs stories with nearly every fibre of my being but i was hesitant to pick this up, only because it just didnt really interest me the only reason i did is becausestorm and furya spin off comes out soon, and it actually sounds really good so here i am fortunately, this turned out better than i thought it would as someone who is still slowly, but somewhat successfully, immersing themselves into the paranormal genre, gargoyles just seemed a bit much but it actually isnt that cheesey i just think that JLA has the power to write about anything and i will really enjoy it however, some points are marked off for the love triangle or strong hint, thereof im not really a fan and dont understand their purpose usually i can tolerate them for the sake of reading because i favour one guy over the other, but it annoys me to no end when i end up liking both of the guys all it does is make me resent the girl for stringing them both along, and thats exactly what i think is gonna happen with this story but still, this was entertaining and my interest is now piqued as to how the story is going to play out 3.5 stars This is one of those kinds of books that just fit me and my mood perfectly at the right moment I loved every single thing about it I think this series is going to rival Lux for me I can t wait for everyone to read it The characters are 2 dimensional and very superficial and you can easily figure out the ending by page 100. It feels so good re reading this trilogy Review to come in a few hours. May have ordered the rest of this series Oops You need something, he said, and when I stared at him, he added, Your face My face It s in need of my kissesWho would ve thought that demons are kind of hot sigh If there s one thing that makes this book beautiful and interesting It s Roth Roth And ROTH.White Hot Kiss is all kinds of awesomesauce I love the concept Ms Jennifer L Armentrout put life into this book The existence of demons and Wardens Gargoyles who protect mankind from demons is a thing that very much catYou need something, he said, and when I stared at him, he added, Your face My face It s in need of my kissesWho would ve thought that demons are kind of hot sigh If there s one thing that makes this book beautiful and interesting It s Roth Roth And ROTH.White Hot Kiss is all kinds of awesomesauce I love the concept Ms Jennifer L Armentrout put life into this book The existence of demons and Wardens Gargoyles who protect mankind from demons is a thing that very much catches attention Not necessarily original, but somehow, it s spectacular.While reading this book I felt like I m in a roller coaster ride There were lots of actions And I mean, live, real, intense actions JLA also did not fail to introduce me to her super swoony characters And speaking of swoony characters, I m talking about Roth and no other Zayne Nah Never mind I kind of don t like him I don t know why JLA tried to make him the third party of a love triangle but seriously, I don t like it I just want Roth and Layla End of the storyI lost myself the moment I found you White Hot Kiss is cheesy and darkly romantic Roth and Layla s interactions are epically sweet and fantastic I love their first encounter It s something I simply can t forget Apart from the romantic side, this book also has funny moments and I found myself really laughing at some point Talk about the JLA humor D Anyways, I love this book I just wished it wasn t that slow paced at first, coz I admit it didn t get me instantly I had to patiently read until the final chapters of the book to get my full attention Because honestly, the best parts were at the final chapters But all in all, it was a great and fun read And I need to read the second book soon Rating 4 Stars
