Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where she spotlights upcoming releases.

This week I am waiting on...

Stone Cold Touch
(The Dark Elements #2)
By:  Jennifer L. Armentrout
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Release Date: October 28th, 2014

Oh man...White Hot Kiss was...HOT!  But it was also a well-told story about something seldom written about...gargoyles...a race of supernatural creatures that shift between their well-known granite counterparts and human form.  In this world, gargoyles are the protectors of human kind against the demons that walk amongst us.

Layla Shaw is essentially between two races and two worlds...as she is half gargoyle and half demon...belonging to both worlds but never really feeling like she has a true place in either.  Her demon side makes it extremely hard to get close with her adopted-gargoyle family or any human thanks to her soul-stealing tendencies.  She's lonely and inadvertently made to feel like an outsider.  And biggest dilemma of all...there is essentially a barrier between her and her best-friend-wish-he-could-be-my-boyfriend, Zayne.  That is...until Roth enters her world.

Roth is the super sexy demon who is perhaps exactly right for Layla, as they do not have to worry about that soul-sucking thing.

Oh...plenty of angst and tension and chemistry in this story.  Needless to say, I'm beyond anxious for the continuation of this series!


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…
