Bitter Sweet Love (The Dark Elements 0.5)

Jennifer Armentrout Website

Book Details: Written by one of my favorite authors Jennifer Armentrout, #1 New York Times and US Today best selling author. Published December 1st, 2013. 105 pages. You can purchase a digital copy at Amazon.

Synopsis of Bitter Sweet Love: Jasmine, our protagonist, is apart of a race of Wardens, real life versions of gargoyles and protectors against demons. Six years ago there was a large increase in the number of demons roaming the earth forcing the Wardens to come out of hiding and make their existence known to the human race. Being a female in the race of Wardens your job is to pretty much mate and have children to keep up the population, while the men are trained to fight.

Jasmine is surprised when her best friend and love of her life, Dez, shows up after no word from him in three years to declare his intentions to be her match. Extremely furious that he would show back up out of no where to state his claim on her.  Jasmine is opposed to the idea of Dez as her match until she finally sees him. When they lock eyes after three years on no contact their feelings for each other are undeniable. Her fight against her feelings for Dez slowly diminishes over the next few days. Dez takes Jasmine on a road trip to a few places she has never been all the while proving that she is the only one he holds in his heart.

My Thoughts: Short and sweet.  I did enjoy the story but it was almost too short to really get caught up in the plot. Cute little love story for Jasmine and Dez. I really did like the concept of the Wardens, that was a new idea for a plot that I have never read. The story introduces the characters in the second book of this series, White Hot Kiss, which I will be starting soon.
