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…

After I read White Hot Kiss, I was like...
 Team Roth!

But then I read Stone Cold Touch and I was like...
 Team Zayne!

Now I'm like...

But seriously, here are 10 reasons you should read Stone Cold Touch...

1. Jennifer L. Armentrout wrote it. You know it's gon' be good!
2. The relationships. They're honest, real and lasting. Layla is a lucky girl.
3. The unique love situation. I'm calling it a "situation" because "triangle" isn't really the right word. Read it, then you'll understand.

4. The club scene. 
(I heard the Eagles' song, Hotel California, in my head as I was reading.)

 5. That.Car.Scene.

6. The locker scene. 
*Insert Brad Pitt's voice... "What's in the locker?! What's in the locker?!"*

7. The introduction of Witches. 
(Again, leave it to JLA to make me rethink my, "I don't "do" those." list. I swear, one of these days she's going to make me like owls too. Maybe.)

8. A twist I DID NOT SEE coming!

9. The ending. Which broke my heart and not for the reasons you might expect.

10. And finally, you should read Stone Cold Touch because...



  1. OMG, that last gig! I couldn't stop laughing in that scene! I've always been undecided even though I was all for Roth in the last book. I just though Zayne never got a fair shot in WHK. But oh boy does he get a chance to prove himself in this book. Now I'm undecided too. Like completely undecided...

  2. THAT LIST GIF THOUGH! I mean, you have compelled me to read this ;)

  3. LOL I am crackin up! I actually haven't read White Hot Kiss yet (ducks) But I know EVERYONE seems to love it! And yes, JLA = must read.

  4. When I found that last gif I couldn't NOT use it :D

  5. I just saw the five stars and I stopped there. I think this is the first review I've seen on Stone Cold Touch! Glad to hear that it is as amazing as (or more than?) White Hot Kiss!
