Every touch has its price
Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life—no easy task for a seventeen-year-old who’s pretty sure things can’t get worse. Her impossibly gorgeous best friend, Zayne, is forever off-limits thanks to the mysterious powers of her soul-stealing kiss. The Warden clan that has always protected her is suddenly keeping dangerous secrets. And she can barely think about Roth, the wickedly hot demon prince who understood her in ways no one else could.
But sometimes rock bottom is only the beginning. Because suddenly Layla’s powers begin to evolve, and she’s offered a tantalizing taste of what has always been forbidden. Then, when she least expects it, Roth returns, bringing news that could change her world forever. She’s finally getting what she always wanted, but with hell literally breaking loose and the body count adding up, the price may be higher than Layla is willing to pay…
I want to know how JLA does it? How can she make me like Zayne when I'm so #TeamRoth4forever? Don't get me wrong, is not enough to make me want him to be the HEA but enough to make me want him to get his own book series.
Zayne was nice, sweet, supportive, caring. He was there for Layla and that counts for a bunch of points in my book.
Layla is still very much someone I want to know. Her route to self-discovery makes me like her even more. She felt guilty and was scared to embrace her darkness but she has innate goodness no matter what.
Roth, I knew he acted the way he did for a reason but it didn't stop me from wanting to shake him a time or two. The last few chapters were the confirmation as to why I'm on his corner 100%.
