Descripción del producto
"Armentrout balances suspense and romance, spicing it up with Roth's one-liners and Layla's wry inner commentary, all adding welcome humor...Demonic fun." -Kirkus Reviews"The second in the Dark Elements series is an absolutely phenomenal, edge-of-your-seat thrill ride....arguably some of Armentrout's best work to date, and what just might be the prolific author's best series....chock full of nonstop action and fast-paced drama. This is a book you'll be hard pressed to put down." -RT Book Reviews (Top Pick)
Reseña del editor
Every touch has its price
Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered lifeno 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 .

Ha surgido un problema al filtrar las opiniones justo en este momento. Vuelva a intentarlo en otro momento.
El problema es que tengo el corazón tan dividido como parece tenerlo Layla, y sé que voy a sufrir lo indecible cuando al final tengo que decidirse -aunque a estas alturas creo que Jennifer ha dado bastantes pistas sobre cuál será el elegido-.
Aún así, no es justo. Los dos son increíbles y se me va a deshacer el corazón, lo estoy viendo.
He disfrutado mucho más con la historia, ya entrada en desarrollo, descubriendo más cosas de este mundo. Pero sobre todo he disfrutado con Roth, que sigue siendo el mismo, y con Zayne, ya que en esta segunda parte hemos pododido conocerlo mejor; su forma de pensar, de actuar, y la profundidad de sus sentimientos por Layla.
Me he vuelto a reír bastante con el humor tan característico de la autora, pero también se me ha encogido el corazón en momentos muy claves.
Tanto con Zayne -cuando quiso demostrarle sus sentimientos, y lo que acabó pasando al final...-, como con Roth y su última declaración, donde exponía los motivos de su comportamiento al principio del libro. Ahí me dejó sin palabras.
Ahora, no envidio a Layla por tener que elegir entre dos chicos tan únicos como son ellos dos. No será fácil, ni siquiera para el lector.
Y en cuanto al argumento de la historia... ¡Dios! ¡Cómo me gustan esos twist inesperado que crea Armentrout!
Deseando que salga la tercera parte para ver cómo acaba todo.

We see more of Zayne in this book, and the rivalry between Zayne and Roth over Layla. However, something happens that allows Layla to kiss Zayne (trying very hard not to spoil). And now the triangle love is getting real.
If officially falls under the category of books where "you are panicking because you seriously have absolutely no idea who the heroine is going to end up with because both choices are real". Even Jennifer had no idea beforehand, which is why she held that post for us to choose.
(By the way, no one has ever done that. And more authors should do that. Jennifer will have my lifetime blessing for this.)
But Roth got so much better in this book. I don't know why, but he's growing on me. Like, the more I read him, the more I'm falling in love with him. I don't know if it's because we get more glimpses of his true self and the depth of his character, or it's just Jennifer's natural weird ability to make me love the character more every time I read them.
If you're in any way disappointed or didn't like the first book as much, Stone Cold Touch totally redeemed it. It's amazing. Now, I don't know if it's because I've only read Twilight once, but I never noticed all the comparisons between this and Twilight until other readers mention it. If that's the case for you, don't worry it's much better. Layla is a beautiful, strong (literally), and capable girl who does not need a prince of hell of a hot warden to save her. And...there's the whole case where Roth is actually quite similar to Rhysand from Court of Thorns and Roses, if you liked that series.
This book did end in a cliffhanger, but even if there aren't any, I would've continued the series anyway because looking at how it's getting better and better drastically, there is no way I'm missing the third book.
Her relationship changes with Zayne in this story (obviously from the title, most would gather that would happen). It's not really a love triangle per se though. Zayne is her comfort zone, safety, and makes her feel warm. But Roth challenges her and makes her feel. I'd like to say it's a tough choice to make, but I and and ALWAYS will be Team Roth!! So there's my vote. LOL
There were so many AMAZING scenes and twists throughout this read, that I don't want to delve into any of them, but just suggest you read it for yourself. Lets talk about the ending real quick. HOLY CRAP!!!! About the last 20% or so of the book will straight up give you anxiety (at least it did me lol)! It also ends on a cliffy, so fair warning. Now to wait and see who the fans will choose: Roth or Zayne!
Can't wait for book 3 to come out!!!
In White Hot Touch I didn’t particularly think the triangle was very well-developed, or that the Big Bad was that great. Thankfully, JLA improved so much in these two areas. Stone Cold Touch, as the name implies, focuses on Layla’s relationship with Zayne. Through the course of this book the two try to find a way to be together despite Layla’s curse, and her feelings for Roth. Layla also discovers how deeply Zayne feels for her, and that her feelings might not have always been unrequited. By the end of this book I was completely torn over who Layla should chose.
Both guys are hot and care for Layla. They both also offer her different things. Roth understands Layla, and allows her to be herself. He doesn’t try to shelter her, but allows her to make her own decisions. Zayne also understands Layla, is her best friend and confidant, and will do anything to protect her. Even if he pisses off everyone else in his life. Honestly, at this point I will be happy if she ends up with either of the guys, but if forced to chose between them I’d pick what seems to be the less popular choice: Zayne. The two have a great history together, and I think in the long run she’d be happier with him.
The second problem with WHK, was the Big Bad. JLA chose the best person to be the villain this time around, and the end of the novel left me sitting with my mouth hanging completely open. I’m so glad I never read this series until now, because if I had to wait more than a month and half for the third book, I’d be so pissed. LOL! I just have too many series I’m reading that have left me in anticipation over the next book in the series. Ugh, but that’s another story…
Do I Recommend?
This book is so much better than the first, that there’s no way I can’t recommend it. However, you’ll have to get through the first book in order to get to this one, but it’ll be worth it. Per usual, JLA keeps you glued to the page from beginning to end, and the steamy scenes leave you wanting more. Who knew Zayne had it in him? Unfortunately, I wouldn’t recommend skipping the first book and beginning the series with Stone Cold Touch. Too much happens in the first novel, and you’d miss all of Roth in his glory.
