I'm re-reading this one!

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.




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. (Page 266)


"You need something," he said, and when I stared at him, he added, "Your face."
"My face?"
"It's in need of my kisses." (Page 306)

And I'm STILL reading this one. Ha :)

Taking Chances (Taking Chances, #1)Taking Chances (Taking Chances #1) by Molly McAdams

Her first year away is turning out to be nearly perfect, but one weekend of giving in to heated passion will change everything.

Eighteen-year-old Harper has grown up under the thumb of her career marine father. Ready to live life her own way and to experience things she's only ever heard of from the jarheads in her father's unit, she's on her way to college at San Diego State University.

Thanks to her new roommate, Harper is introduced to a world of parties, gorgeous guys, family, and emotions. She finds herself being torn in two as she quickly falls in love with both her new boyfriend, Brandon, and her roommate's brother, Chase. Despite their dangerous looks and histories, both men adore Harper and would do anything for her, including taking a step back if it would mean she'd be happy.




"Please don't ever be too embarrassed to talk to me." He leaned in to whisper in my ear, "I'll never intentionally make you uncomfortable. If I do, tell me. And I promise I'll never push you to do anything you don't want to."


I hmphed and curled deeper into his embrace. "I love how I feel in your arms." I sighed into his chest.
"You fit there perfectly." He squeezed his arms around me and kissed the top of my head, "Get some sleep sweetheart."

I have a BUNCH of stuff highlighted in this one (and I'm only a little more than halfway through--and loving it!), so I thought I'd put a couple of those quotes to use. ;)
