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...
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. (Goodreads)
Okay, so who remembers the Gargoyle series from the 90's? I LOVED that show growing up. Whenever I could catch it, that was one of my favorites. And these books really, really reminded me of that series. Which was a good thing. I definitely got sucked in and enjoyed them immensely, just like most of Armentrout's books. I did feel like her female characters were weaker than I've become accustomed to in her Lux series, and I hope that changes. Still, it's understandable on some levels, as Layla's situation is really quite horrible. She's been dealt a hand I can't even begin to imagine. This is a rather light read, perfect for a cool evening and a need to escape into a fun book. And the fact that there's not a full year between releases is awesome!
What about you? Have you read these? Did you watch the Gargoyles show? :)
