Blurb:

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...

My Review:
Bitter Sweet Love is definitely the beginning of an amazing series. I read another Gargoyle book this year and I immediately fell in love with the amazing supernatural creatures all over again since I did watch the show Gargoyles. When I found out JLA was writing a book about Gargoyles I was sooo freaking excited. There are so few books about Gargoyles I mean who wouldn’t be excited?

Gargoyles, demons, and loads of sexual tension….okay maybe not loads but it was there. Dez has been gone for three years and when he comes back saying he’s finally ready to be mated to Jasmine, Jasmine is so not happy. (I mean seriously dude three years no word? WTF!?!)  Anyway Jasmine says that she’ll make her decision to be mated to him after he approves to her before mated bucket list. 

Jasmine is so awesome. She kicks major bootay and I love that she never lets Dez off the hook until he finally tells her what’s what. Dez is super-de-duper swoon worthy. No Demon mind you but Dez definitely has all the yummy parts like abs and the absolute benefit of being written by the amazing JLA. 

Bitter Sweet Love totally reminds me of the Firelight Series by Sophie Jordan. There were some major differences but they were also very similar. Jacinda Dragon than can turn human, arranged marriages, patriarchal society, lack of interaction with human world, a younger sister. Yup a lot like the Firelight Series which if you don’t know is one of my favorite series. 

All in all I loved Bitter Sweet Love. Dez is all kinds of yummy!!! I wish I could have heard this story from his perspective too or read about his three year trip. That would be cool, or both would be awesome.  Jasmine was an awesome character too, fierce and always doing what she feels is right for her even when all she wants to do is give in to her feelings.

Definitely cannot wait until White Hot Kiss is released!!!!

Specially thank you to Vi from Deity Island and Confessions of a Vi3ttbabe  for the copy of Bitter Sweet Love!!!

Favorite Quote:
"I loved you the night yo ubrought me pudding and stayed with me until I fell asleep. That was eleven years ago and my love for you has never faded, Jas. Not for one second."

Oh Dez you are so romantic!
