*semi spoiler-free review*

White Hot Kiss is the first book in Jennifer L. Armentrout's series 'The Dark Elements'. And it was phenomenal. 
Let's just start by saying that I was tempted to throw the book across the room when I finished, but I didn't want to ruin the beautifulness of it. 
The ending totally surprised me, but it really should not have. I should have seen it coming, major time. What happened is something that Armentrout did in a different series, but in a different way. And it again killed my heart. Congrats on THAT achievement.


This book is about a half-demon half-Warden named Layla. Wardens are gargoyles, essentially, and are the ones tasked with hunting and killing demons. See the problem? 
And because she's a half-demon, Layla can never kiss any person with a soul (i.e. her fellow Warden and crush, Zayne) or else she'll suck it out. Which sucks (pun intended). 
Then a smaller character (he's not really a small character, he's a really big character) shows up. A tattooed demon named Roth, aka Astaroth: The Crown Prince of Hell. Do you see where he got the name Roth from? Oh, you got it? Okay good.
Just reading about Roth was hotter than this:
That's hard to do. 
Anyway, Roth saves Layla from a demon and yadayadayada stuff happens. They start developing feelings for each other. Feelings. And guess who doesn't have a soul that Layla can suck out? Roth. You know what that means, right? 

Um, not they do not have sex. Get your mind out of the gutter. God, immature. 

;)

They do kiss, however. You were right about that. And honestly this whole story had me squealing like a little girl. Especially at the semi-romantic scenes between Layla and Roth. 
So, because of the amazing characters mixed in with that plot twist at the end, I gave this a 5/5 stars. So far I've given all of Jennifer L. Armentrout's books 5/5 stars. She's almost as good as Sarah J. Maas. 

Almost.

Thanks for reading, I'll see you next time (or rather I'll see you in the form of a view tally).
