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 have to admit I was kind of annoyed at this book. Nothing happened for that majority of it. There was some stuff in the beginning and end, but everything in between was all about the love triangle and stuff. It dragged.
If it hadn’t been for the ending twist I wouldn’t be continuing with the third one. I had my suspicions about things, but not that sort of suspicion.
NOTE: I ended up DNFing the third book because I just could not care anymore.
