Harlequin | February 25, 2014 | Trade Paperback

White Hot Kiss is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 3.
#1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout draws readers into the extraordinary, irresistible world of Wardens and demons in the New York Times bestselling first book of The Dark Elements series.
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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Must for JLA fans Layla is seventeen and never been kissed. She’s half-gargoyle, half-demon so her kiss will kill anyone with a soul. She lives among a group called The Wardens, gargoyles who protect the world from demons, and she does her best not to call attention to her dark half. But then Roth comes into her life, a hot demon who knows her in ways no one else will, and who claims to want to help her. Trusting Roth means turning her back on her family, including her best friend Zayne, but not working with Roth could mean a violent demon uprising. I really love the world that was created in this book. Gargoyles vs demons, different Gargoyle clans, demon hierarchy. All of it was interesting to read as it developed. I enjoyed how much I could relate to Layla. For the most part she was pretty quiet, loved to read, and really just wanted to do whatever she could to help her family in their battle against the demons. She worried about them when they were out and she couldn’t be. We got to see her become more confident in who she is as a person throughout the book. I was a little nervous about the obvious love triangle that the description mentions but I didn’t hate it. It didn’t overtake the book and it’ll be interesting to see how it develops. The two guys both have qualities that make them a good match for Layla. Zayne is so protective and caring and sweet to her. Roth gets her in ways no one else can and opens her mind to new views. The plot had a lot of action and mythology about demons, which was nice. As hot as the kissing scenes were, some of them felt a little out of place, or at least hard for me to get into, since they were about to do something dangerous and I was focused on the potential drama instead of the kissing. It was fast paced, which made for a quick read because I kept saying ‘one more chapter’ until the end. There did seem to be more focus on the demon side of things with Layla and Roth so hopefully in the next book we get to see more gargoyles. *I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What an Amazing Read!!! Only Jennifer L. Armentrout could make gargoyles and demons look sexy! Since the first page I was instantly hooked and fell in love with all the characters. Being a fan of Jen's I knew instantly that I would love this book! There is action, swoon-worthy romances, and White Hot Kiss will leave you wanting more. Like many books of Jen's there is a love triangle that will make you choose who will win Layla's heart. This is one book everyone must add to their list because it is an amazing read! Layla was a great character! I love Jennifer's main characters and they are always kicking butt. She is always trying to help. Layla is having a hard time trying to fit in with her Warden family since she is half gargoyle and have demon. Most of the family doesn't trust her because of her abilities. She goes to school and craves for a normal life and become more than friends with Zayne. Then enters Roth, things get really complicated. Layla has to choose between everything she thought was good or bad. She is learning more about herself and her demon part. I absolutely loved White Hot Kiss and its a little different than reading Jen's other series. This book is a favorite of mine because of the two love interests, a war starts and you do not know which boy to choose between. I am a Team Roth fan because well Roth is hot and gorgeous. I thought I would be a Zayne fan but Roth just stole my heart. Zayne is a normal book boyfriend that everyone falls for (which there was moments) I love both of them but after you read White Hot Kiss you will know why I love Roth.  Zayne is Layla's best friend and will protect Layla. It is really difficult to choose which one!! White Hot Kiss was a book that I finished in a day! I did not put it down and its a good thing to because that story line was addicting and will leave you hanging on your seat. Jennifer L. Armentrout makes romance steamy and heart-wrenching since her characters are so likable. I am excited to see what is going to happen with the next book where the story will go and the romance.  I want to re-read any of Jennifer's book over and over because she know how to write amazing stories. She is the queen of writing and I will read any of her books! White Hot Kiss was addictive story!  This is  a must read for everyone!! It will blow you away and leave you craving for more!! The wait starts for Stone Cold Touch!!! A Big thank you to Harlequin Teen for the advance copy and making my day when I got the email!! So excited for any of Jen's books!!

Read from the Book

There was a demon in McDonald's. And it had a powerful hunger for Big Macs. Most days, I loved my after-school job. Tagging the soulless and the damned usually gave me a mad case of the warm fuzzies. I'd even given myself a quota out of boredom, but tonight was different. I had a paper to outline for AP English. "Are you gonna eat those fries?" Sam asked as he grabbed a handful off my tray. His curly brown hair fell over his wireframe glasses. "Thanks." "Just don't take her sweet tea." Stacey slapped Sam's arm and several fries fell to the floor. "You'll lose your entire arm." I stopped tapping my foot, but kept my eye on the interloper. I don't know what it was with demons and the Golden Arches, but man, they loved the place. "Ha-ha." "Who do you keep staring at, Layla?" Stacey twisted in the booth, looking around the crowded fast-food joint. "Is it a hot guy? If so, you better- Oh. Wow. Who goes out in public dressed like that?" "What?" Sam turned, too. "Aw, come on, Stacey. Who cares? Not everyone wears knockoff Prada like you." To them, the demon looked like a harmless middle-aged woman with really bad fashion sense. Her dull brown hair was pinned up with one of those old-school purple butterfly clips. She wore velvet green track pants paired with pink sneakers, but it was her sweater that was epic. Someone had knitted a basset hound on the front, its big, sappy eyes made of br
