I finished reading Bitter Sweet Love (The Dark Elements #0.5) by Jennifer L. Armentrout on Wednesday.
In a sizzling prequel novella to her new series The Dark Elements, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout draws readers into the extraordinary, irresistible world of Wardens and demons.
Dez wasn’t just Jasmine’s crush. A gargoyle Warden like Jas, he helped her come to terms with her destiny—fending off demons and maintaining the balance between good and evil. He was her everything…right until the moment he disappeared without a trace. It didn’t help that Jas’s father had just announced that she and Dez would one day be mated. Hard not to take that personally.
And now he’s back, three years older, ten times hotter, ready to pick up exactly where they left off. But Jas isn’t taking that risk again. Dez has seven days to meet all her conditions and earn back her trust. Seven days filled with terrifying danger and sweet temptation. Seven days to win her heart—or shatter it all over again…
Don’t miss White Hot Kiss, book one in Jennifer L. Armentrout’s The Dark Elements series from Harlequin TEEN!
Ok, I'm not sure why, but I had NO idea this book was a paranormal. Which is in no way a bad thing since I love paranormal books. But it's like when you take a drink of something, thinking its something off. Throws you off for a few seconds. I guess I had just never read the premise of the series.
But I really enjoyed this short little novella. Gargoyle Wardens are something new! (at least to me!) I liked getting a little taste of this world that I'll be diving into for the new two books. Yup! I have White Hot Kiss up next and then Stone Cold Touch right after. I can't wait!
I gave this book a rating of 4/5.
