I’ve read some of the books in the Lux series, plus Obsession, in which I lost interest when I was just getting to the end. Her writing is really really good, and I don’t just say that about many authors, but some of the roads her books take just aren’t for me. Then again, I also read Bitter Sweet Kiss, the prequel to this series and loved it!
So when I downloaded the sample from Amazon for this book, I had no idea what I was getting myself into!
I just couldn’t put this freaking book down! Even when I went to bed, I still dreamed of Layla and Roth. Plus I totally relate to Layla’s relationship with Zaine!
Anyway, hot smocking adventures all around!
The way the relationship develops between Layla and Roth is just mesmerising, and the fact that he’s a demon, and very high-ranked in Hell, I might add, just makes things a whole other level of yumminess! I love that with Roth, Layla finds herself collaborating, he treats her as an equal in the most part, whereas Zane kind of babies her.
Admittedly, Layla has some what I would call ‘blonde-moments’, where she does things that you just know are going to end badly, and you find yourself screaming at the book: ‘No, don’t go there alone!’ (it sounds like something you’d do when watching a horror film, but the reaction is the same, I swear! Well, at least for me it was =D)
Plus, I just love Bambi! She’s Roth’s snake familiar that has a fondness for Layla, and shows up here and there to save her – she’s her guard… snake-dog?! I’d love to have such a good pet in the house, but then again, they’re not going to be Bambi, so alas…
Bonus: I cried my eyes out at the end of the book! It leaves you wanting to read the sequel badly, to see if a certain somebody comes back!
This is just one of those reads that goes directly to your heart, ya’ know? ^^
Read, savor and delight in it, that’s my recommendation, because it will upgrade your fantasies about ‘Prince Charming’ to a whole other Hellish level, I swear!
