Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

- BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away! You don't want to ruin the book for others!)

My Tease for this week comes from:
White Hot Kiss
(The Dark Elements #1)
Jennifer L. Armentrout
First - The Blurb:
One kiss could be the last.
Seventeen-year-old Layla just wants to be normal. But with a kiss that kills anything with a soul, she's anything but normal. Half demon, half gargoyle, Layla has abilities no one else possesses.
Raised among the Wardens—a race of gargoyles tasked with hunting demons and keeping humanity safe—Layla tries to fit in, but that means hiding her own dark side from those she loves the most. Especially Zayne, the swoon-worthy, incredibly gorgeous and completely off-limits Warden she's crushed on since forever.
Then she meets Roth—a tattooed, sinfully hot demon who claims to know all her secrets. Layla knows she should stay away, but she's not sure she wants to—especially when that whole no-kissing thing isn't an issue, considering Roth has no soul.
But when Layla discovers she's the reason for the violent demon uprising, trusting Roth could not only ruin her chances with Zayne… it could brand her a traitor to her family. Worse yet, it could become a one-way ticket to the end of the world.
Second - The Tease(rs):
Roth's lips brushed mine. I sucked in a startled breath, freezing underneath him. It wasn't much of a kiss, just a tentative caress, surprisingly soft and gentle. He didn't push it or deepen the contact. He just hovered there, the butterfly kiss doing more to me than anything ever had.
And I wanted more, so much more.
"See," he murmured in a thick voice, and he let go, his fingers trailing over my cheeks. "Your life isn't about all you can't do. It's about what you can do."
"Your tongue is pierced," I said dumbly.
A wicked gleam filled his gaze. "That's not the only thing pierced."
There are so many great teaser moments in this book that it was hard to stop at just two. Hope you enjoyed my choices.
Oh, and just in case you're wondering if I'm team Zayne or team Roth? Not sure yet. I think I might need to read Stone Cold Touch first.
My Rating for White Hot Kiss: 5 out of 5
