One kiss could be the last.Four Stars
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.
ARC from Netgalley. There is no bias in this review.
Do you see that cover? That completely generic romance cover with the two people about to kiss? That cover that promises R-rated times and very little plot- pretend it's gone. This isn't an erotica book. It's actually very young adult and very enjoyable. While it's not my favorite JLA book, it's still pretty good. One of the only parts I didn't really like is that Jennifer's love interests all seem to blend together.
White Hot Kiss is what- 250, 300 pages? For some people, it takes them a few days to read. But it goes by so quickly that you hardly notice the time. And that's always a plus in reading.
I don't know how to describe White Hot Kiss without seeming like an idiot. But here we go: In its most basic description, White Hot Kiss is about a teenage girl, Layla, who can't kiss anyone except for one person, Roth, unless she wants to kill them. But she likes someone else. The person is Zayne, and all those teenage girls will love him, just because he's named after a guy in One Direction Until she meets said person she can actually kiss. And then she likes them a lot. And then it ends up being a love triangle that's not a love triangle. Ish.
There are only three accepted reactions to the previous paragraph:
In which case, I'm wondering what you're doing on my blog and questioning your taste in books. But you should still read it.
Which means you're sane and should just accept the fact that I'm right about the four stars and you should read it.
Or you're like the dog and this book is like that weird thing being held, and you're like, "Get that thing away from me!" And that also means you should read it.
Just trust me when I say this is actually a really good book and you should totally read it. You'll like it. Unless you have no soul.
White Hot Kiss has amazingly realistic characters, a great plot, and a brilliant, imaginative, and very descriptive world that I do not want to live in, for the sole reason of not having enough books described in this book.
And if my completely understandable review doesn't convince you to read this book, the fact that there are kittens and a snake named Bambi will.
Publishers, agents, and JLA take note: If I don't get the next book soon, the world will end. Not like in 2012, when the world "ended", but for real this time.
