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 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...
Who knew gargoyle's could be so HOT!?! Jennifer L Armentrout has done it again. She's written another book that is hot, addicting, and makes waiting for White Hot Kiss that much more of a challenge. I want the next story like now. I'm so impatient when comes to waiting on Jennifer's next book. After you read this book, you'll know why.

There are very few YA books that I've read that are centered around gargoyles. The ones I've read I've really enjoyed, but this book was down right captivating. This prequel introduces readers to The Dark Elements world, the upcoming series who's first book, White Hot Kiss hits shelves in a mere few weeks. In it we're introduced to the world of the Wardens (the gargoyles), and the Demons. While Jennifer introduces the White Hot Kiss characters, Layla, Roth and Zayne, this story centers on Jasmine and Dez.

In true Jennifer fashion, the character chemistry ignites the pages. Okay not literally, since this is an ebook, but if it wash an actual book I'm pretty the pages would be smoldering. Dez and Jasmine have an undeniable attraction to one another. Really their chemistry together is smoking. That mixed with their long standing history together makes their relationship inevitable. Together they're just plain hot. I enjoyed reading about them as well as getting a glimpse into their enticing world. While I loved that this story centered on them, I am now totally 100 % intrigued by Mr Snarky High and Mighty hot demon boy whom I am assuming is Roth, that Dez and Jasmine meet at the end of their story.

Fans of Jennifer Armentrout's will definitely download this e-novella of hotness! After reading this book I'm even more impatient about getting my hands on White Hot Kiss. It's a fabulous introduction into the upcoming release's world and characters.
