Bitter Sweet Love by Jennifer L. Armentrout

{Review} Bitter Sweet Love by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Title: Bitter Sweet Love (The Dark Elements #0.5)
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Published: December 1st, 2013 by Harlequin Teen
Pages: 105

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...

This is the second series of Jennifer L. Armentrouts that I have started and I was afraid that her Lux series would be a one hit wonder, but thankfully this book lived up to Armentrout’s reputation.  When I read the synopsis of this book, I really didn’t think that a romance between gargoyles would be enticing, but I was hooked!  This novella focuses on Jasmine and Dez who will make appearing roles in the first book of the series (White Hot Kiss), but the series will not focus on these characters.  The plot of this book was very interesting, the book pacing was genius, and the characters were amazing.  Armentrout creates an detailed world full of daemons and Wardens (gargoyle guardians), which was a great setup for the future series.  I would highly recommend this novella to anyone and everyone, it was great.  I can’t wait to continue on with the series and anything else that Armentrout writes!
