Waiting On Wednesday (15): White Hot Kiss by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly bookish event hosted by Breaking the SpineThis is a meme that many book blogs participate in to goggle over highly anticipated upcoming releases and fabulous covers and authors!

 Uhh, it's JLA. How could I possibly not be looking forward to this book? I've saved White Hot Kiss as a WOW to be my first WOW of the year. Can't express how excited I am for Jen's new series!

Goodreads Synopsis:

White Hot Kiss (The Dark Elements, #1)
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.

A Kiss of Death. It's a cliche topic, and Jen has already ventured into "touch of death" with Cursed, but I think that White Hot Kiss is going to be amazing. JLA always finds a way to turn cliche topics into a beautiful innovation, and I cannot wait to see where she takes this series. 

And no, I can't deny that I'm partly looking forward to this just for the guys. Zayne, Roth, perhaps some Dez, and god knows who else. I think she divined the future with this quite from Obsidian:

“Beautiful face. Beautiful body. Horrible attitude. It was the holy trinity of hot boys.”

Yes, indeed I believe WHK will be a holy trinity of hot boys. Can't wait for this, White Hot Kiss is OUT on February 25th through Harlequin Teen!
