Summary from GoodReads
Every touch has its price
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 been expecting the sequel all summer and i was really glad for the chance to have a copy! ;)
Stone Cold Touch" takes place two weeks after Roth's fall into the pit with Layla worrying over him and tension into the Warden clan. When Layla finds herself into a really difficult situation along with Zayne, then the real problem begins.
Roth returns but things are really strange between Layla and him. And with Zayne's growing feelings for her, everything blows apart.
Into a plot where witty dialogues, funny scenes and really charged emotional, and steamy, scenes Jennifer Armentrout delivers a thrilling story, where good and wrong sometimes aren't easy to tell apart.
As one of Team Roth, i believe that the ending of the second book, is a good point to see who will Layla choose. While I din't expect the 'bad guy' to appear like this, i was really moved by Roth's words. While I also like Zayne, i found that he was really late to express his feelings and in some reasons, at the second half of the book, he was acting more like a teenager rather than the man he is.
Overall, and in a few words, i can't wait for 2015!!!
