If you have rated this less than 4/5 then you are crazy I rated this a 5/5 stars because I love it I couldn’t let go of this book while reading I love Roth those how love Zayne don’t hate me I can see why you love Zayne he’s a (Simon from mortal instruments) but I like Roth he’s hot and funny why do guys like him only exist in books If you haven’t read this and want to know why we all love it then continue reading it is about a girl called Layla she is half demon half gargoyle if she kisses someone she sucks their soul (kind of like Juliet from shatter me) she is ok with her life crushing on Zayne and spending time with her human friends…
She meets Roth the demon how is sworn to protect Layla and tries to tell Layla how lucky she is that she has a demon side.
“People with the purest souls are capable of the greatest evils. No one is perfect, no matter what they are or what side they fight for.”
Believe me read it you wont regret it.
P.S (IF YOU DON’T LIKE ROTH THEN DON’T READ THE REVIEW IT’S ALL ABOUT HIM)
This review may be long

If I keep pointing out how good Roth was we’d be here years I was happy to read this at the time i fancied a book about demons and i was watching ShopieSeries a really good youtuber and she was talking about how much she loved it i and so i though why not give it a try i was in a reading slump for about two months and this brought me straight out of it i got to the first chapter and fell in love with this book.
At first I was team Zayne until….
“Don’t be scared of Bambi” the demon said. “She’s only curious and maybe a little bit hungry.”
The thing was named Bambi?
Oh, my God, the thing stared at me like it wanted to eat me.”
I read about Roth let me show you a few quotes and see if you agree with me.
“You need something,” he said, and when I stared at him, he added, “Your face.”
“It’s in need of my kisses.”
“At some point, Roth had gotten hold of my cell and replaced Zayne’s name with Stony and listed his own number under Sexy Beast. What a tool”
“Roth heaved a long sigh. “Look. I’m so—I’m sor…” He took a deep breath, trying again. “I’m sorr…” I turned my head toward him, waiting. “You’re what? Sorry?” He looked chagrined, lips pursed. “I’m…sorr-ree.” “Oh, give me a break. You can’t say I’m sorry?” “No.” He looked me straight on, serious. “It’s not in a demon’s vocab.”
“I…can’t believe you have kittens.” I wiggled my fingers and the little guy strained to reach them. “What’re their names?”
Roth snorted. “That one is Fury. The white one is Nitro and the black one is named Thor.”
“What? You called these cuties something like that, but named a giant snake Bambi?”
He bent forward, placing a kiss on my shoulder. It was so fast I wasn’t sure he’d actually done it. “There’s sweetness in evil,” he said. “And remember, looks can be deceiving
I love the way he calls his demon pets after Disney films especially Bambi when i saw the giant snake i thought it ould be something awesome like death, spike etc. but it was cute and that is my favoute animal pet so far.
“I’m a demon, Layla. What I see in your eyes and what I sense from your body is something I will take. Make no mistake. I’ll give you one chance. Close your eyes, and I’ll let this go.” I felt weak under his consuming stare, but I didn’t close my eyes. “Layla.” He said my name as if it hurt him. And then he kissed me
Quotes like this made me kind of confused because you know he attracted to her so why is he lying i was so happy that when she kissed this hot demon he didn’t die (because he doesn’t have a soul) which i don’t believe for one second.
The one scene that annoyed me big time was when they killed him off i mean why he was amazing just when it got so good and everything was perfect he throw himself into the pits of bloody hell because Layla didn’t want Zayne to die don’t get me wrong Zayne is a nice guy but i would prefer him to die then Roth i know why Jennifer done it because I’ve read the whole trilogy in January and i wanted to review it in February so i could just have time to review it without having to rush and not review the best bits.
“Free will, huh? Damn. It is a bitch.’ And then he smiled-he smiled-at me, a real smile, revealing those deep dimples. ‘I lost myself the moment I found you.”
That is one of my favourite scene’s this scene made me *cry*
“Some girl named Eva has him convinced that you put out after one beer.”
“What?” My voice was as shrill as the ringing tardy bell
“I personally don’t believe it” he went on blithely, “and I have a Porsche. Not as much leg room as a Beamer, but so much hotter, I’m told.”
I was laughing at this scene the cheek of Roth to say something like that but i wasn’t surpised he’d say something like that.
“You always seemed lonely. Even when you were with your friends, you were lonely.”
My chest spasmed. “And you…you’re lonely?”
“What do you think?” He shifted so that one leg was between mine. “But it doesn’t really matter. I’m not lonely right now. Neither are you.”
I kind of believe that he is lonely and when reading the novella from this series you notice that Roth is lonely and that he has always admired Layla and fancied her i think that Roth likes Layla because she is special but also she is strong and brave and always is happy about how she is even when times suck she will always make it ok i was annoyed with Zayne dad he is always bossy and acts like she is this cursed doll that needs to be punished unless she does what she is told she is only useful by marking demons which can kill her.
This was my great review that may change if i read it futher in the future please let me know on the comments below what you thought of this great book and if you rated it low why what didn’t you like about this.
