Synopsis from GoodReads:
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…
This one I really liked a lot better than the first as there was a lot more going on. I really liked how there was more conflict/a wall between Zayne and Roth, yet how they both protect and look out for Layla is admirable.
I did want to hit Roth a lot more in this one, considering there was no need for him to be such an ass to Layla; even if it was the whole “Cruel to be kind” tactic.
As for Zayne, he really needs to pull himself together-I don’t know whether I want to like him or hate him. It’s kind of like with Roth, it’s love/hate because he’s all for protecting Layla, but still acts like an ass. I don’t agree that he stood there while Roth said what he said to Abbot about Layla when Roth resurfaced!
The only thing I didn’t like about this series was how it ended, because it’s just opened up a whole other mess of shit. So now I’m curious-extremely curious to see where it goes. The other thing I hate is not being able to pick Team Roth or Team Zayne. So I’m going Team Cayman! 😀
My favourite about this entire series up to now is the innuendos that Roth comes out with. It’s definitely a series for young adults, practically around 17+, but it is a series that won’t let you down.
***** 5/5 stars
