Bitter Sweet Love: Review


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...


Gargoyle Wardens and demons? At first I'm not so sure because this is so new and I don't know how to process that. But damn, sign me up for more gargoyles hotness! It's impossible not to like this new world because it's so unique and irresistible and beautiful at the same time (I'm sure it can also be terrifying in some ways, but I guess we'll see more with Layla and Zayne). Bitter Sweet Love is a pre-novella destined to bring girls down because it's sizzling hot. 

It's pretty hilarious to see Jas nearly tripping on the floor when she sees Dez's return. Dez has seven days to win her heart back all over again and mate with her or leave her broken again. The seven days... well I'm not going to spoil you too much. Let's just say you will find yourself laugh out loud in places where you don't normally, well, laugh.

We also see Layla and Zayne in Bitter Sweet Love. I guarantee--- I mean guarantee --- that you will like Layla. Despite being a half demon and half gargoyle and has a dark side (this is not spoiler, by the way. Check it out on the synopsis of White Hot Kiss on Goodreads), she's a complete sweetheart in the novella. And innocent. And she goes to public school (Finally a not-so-antisocial-gargoyle! XD). I have a feeling I'm already liking where White Hot Kiss is heading. 

If you are still not sure about whether gargoyles can make a great story or not, read this novella. I'm pretty sure you will dive right into the world.

Rating: 8.5/10
