WHITE HOT KISS by Jennifer L. Armentrout {RELEASE DAY LAUNCH}

White Hot KissWe are beyond excited to participate in the Release Day Launch for Jennifer L. Armentrout’s WHITE HOT KISS! WHITE HOT KISS is a young adult paranormal romance being published by Harlequin Teen TODAY! 
This is the first full-length novel in The Dark Elements Series and one you’ll want to grab as soon as you finish reading this post.  
ABOUT WHITE HOT KISS: 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.   
EXCERPT: “I don’t think of Zayne that way!” She laughed. “What man-parts-loving female in this world doesn’t think of Zayne that way? I can barely keep myself breathing when I see him. All the guys in school have squishy waists. I can tell Zayne doesn’t. He’s the awesome sauce with extra sauce.” That he was and he so didn’t have a squishy waist, but I tuned Stacey out at that point. I really did need to cram for this test and I also didn’t want my fantasies involving Zayne to occupy my mind right now. Especially after I’d woken up this morning, carefully tucked under the covers. The bed had smelled like him: sandalwood and crisp linen. “Oh, sweet baby Jesus in a manger,” Stacey murmured. I clenched my jaw, cupping my hands over my ears. She jabbed me in the side with her elbow. At this rate I’d be covered in bruises before lunchtime. “Our bio class just got a billion times more interesting. And hotter, lots and lots hotter. Holy mother, I want to have his babies. Not now of course, but definitely later. But I’d like to start practicing soon.” The cell wall is a thick and rigid layer covering the plasma something, something plant cells… Stacey stiffened all of a sudden. “Oh my God, he’s coming—” Composed of fat and sugar— Something slender and shiny fell from who knew where, landing in the middle of Sam’s notes. Blinking tightly, it took me a couple of seconds to recognize the faded and half peeled Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sticker covering the back of the silver cell phone. My heart slammed against my ribs. Gripping the edges of the notebook, I slowly lifted my gaze. Unnaturally beautiful golden eyes met mine. “You forgot this last night.”

BE WITH ME by J. Lynn *5 Chapter Reveal!!!*

BE WITH ME Synopsis:


From the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Wait for You

Do Teresa and Jase have a real shot at getting together or will life get in the way?

Teresa Hamilton is having a rough year—she’s in love with her big brother’s best friend, but he hasn’t spoken to her since they shared a truly amazing, mind-blowing, life-changing kiss. Then she got out of a terrible relationship. Now an injury is threatening to end her dance career for good. It’s time for plan B: college. And maybe she’ll have a chance to convince Jase that what they have together is real.

Jase Winstead has a huge secret that he’s not telling anyone—especially not his best friend’s incredibly beautiful sister. Even though he and Teresa shared the hottest kiss of his life, he knows that his responsibilities must take priority. He certainly doesn’t have time for a relationship. But it doesn’t help that all he can think about is kissing the one girl who could ruin everything for him.

As they’re thrown together more and more, Jase and Teresa can’t keep denying their feelings for each other. But a familiar danger looms and tragedy strikes. As the campus recovers, the star-crossed couple must decide what they’re willing to risk to be together and what they’re willing to lose if they’re not. . . .

WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Starting over sucks.


When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring…. until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth.


Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something…unexpected happens. 


The hot alien living next door marks me.


You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades. 


If I don’t kill him first, that is.

MY THOUGHTS:  Holy cow! I don’t even know where to begin with how much this book rocked my world right now! And how badly I wish that I had book #2 because I have a wicked case of book hangover. I want more Daemon! I NEED more Daemon! And Katy – how much more awesome can a main character get?! Okay, let me take a second and attempt to compose myself  *makes several minutes worth of squee and eeek noises*
Let’s try this again.
Oh. My. God. Who knew aliens could be so sexy?! And so bad ass?!
I absolutely loved Katy’s character. The only way I can think to describe her is… Feisty! She is one sarcastic, funny girl and definitely a top fave of mine now. All of the characters were fabulous. The sexy, smoldering Daemon, sensitive and lovable Dee; and even Katy’s other new friends Carissa and Lesa offer up tons of funny dialogue. The intense sexual tension and chemistry between Katy and Daemon is insane, and I am craving MORE!
I really enjoyed how well plotted out the story line is too. From the first page to the last, the story never slowed down or hit speed bumps. I was happily cruising along at a constant pace the entire time. There were no parts that felt awkward or forced, and I simply did not want to put the book down to eat, sleep, and go to work! It is easy to see what all the fuss was about when Armentrout hit the YA scene. I find her to be a fabulous author, and I will happily read anything that she puts out.

WHO I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO: Anyone who loves a good sci-fi story with hot aliens and one heck of a feisty, not-afraid-of-anything heroine!
