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…
Reading this book has be going in so many different directions! In my White Hot Kiss review I pretty much established where I wanted to go and who's side I was on. With Layla being part warden and part demon I wanted her to embrace the latter. Upon reading this book some of my feeling are in the air.
In this story there is a mystery that has everyone one wondering or some. Zanye and Roth have to work together for the sake of Layla and then there are some lies in between the two of them. This book was centered mostly around Layla and Zayne's relationship. She trust Zayne with everything but she knows deep down that she can be herself with Roth. Some situations that occurred in the story proved that (not going to spoil it :)). I did feel that Layla had some serious moments where she needed to "grow up" and I hope that in the next installment she is a bit more mature. Still, I love her.
Now for a bit fangirling. I honestly can't decided where this triangle is going. Through the story I was all for happy for Zayne for stepping up and showing Lalya just how he felt
HINT: CAR SCENE
Then I remembered I hate love triangles. I knew that Layla still had strong feelings for Roth and that part of her would never go away no matter how hard he tried to push her away from him and vice versa.
HINT: THE BEDROOM SCENE.
She didn't quite know which direction to take.
Roth still had his bad boy charm (which I loved) but there is a much softer side of him that is displayed from the story. He and Zayne both have the same thing in common and that is Layla. Everyone one is trying to figure out the answer to the big question "Who will she be with?" As I said before, I can't decide.
(SIGHS) The ending. I turned to page on my kindle and when I saw it go to the Amazon page my jaw hit the floor. It could not end like that...it..just couldn't. I have to wait until the July of 2015 to get my hands on the next book.
Overall I loved reading Stone Cold Touch and all of it's goodness.
Recommend? Yes :)
