So my book boyfriend for the week is...



Stone Cold Touch (The Dark Elements, #2) by Jennifer L Armentrout

Every touch has its price

Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life—no easy task for a seventeen-year-old who’s pretty sure things can’t get worse. Her impossibly gorgeous best friend, Zayne, is forever off-limits thanks to the mysterious powers of her soul-stealing kiss. The Warden clan that has always protected her is suddenly keeping dangerous secrets. And she can barely think about Roth, the wickedly hot demon prince who understood her in ways no one else could.

But sometimes rock bottom is only the beginning. Because suddenly Layla’s powers begin to evolve, and she’s offered a tantalizing taste of what has always been forbidden. Then, when she least expects it, Roth returns, bringing news that could change her world forever. She’s finally getting what she always wanted, but with hell literally breaking loose and the body count adding up, the price may be higher than Layla is willing to pay…

Why am I choosing Zayne right now? I can't say this means I'll definitely be Zayne's team by the end of this book, but seriously, y'all...Zayne is so swoon-worthy. 

He says sweet things...

He shook his head as he walked--no, stalked--toward me, each step full of purpose and with an inherent grace a dancer would be envious of. "You're beautiful," he said, yes a brilliant, luminous shade of blue. "I don't think I've ever told you that."
"You haven't, but I'm n--"
"Don't say you're not." His gaze dipped once more to where Bambi's head rested, and air leaked out between parted lips. For once, the demonic familiar didn't move. "Because you are, Layla. You're beautiful."

He cuddles whenever he can...

Zayne wrapped an arm around my waist and guided me down to my side and he curled up, throwing his leg over mine. My eyes widened and for a moment I was too stunned by how close he was to me. Roth and I had lain like this after...
He moved one hand down the back of my head, guiding my face to his chest, and wrapped his other around the hand attached to my injurded arm. "I can feel your heart pounding," he said, his voice muffled by my hair. "Try to take a couple of deep breaths."

And he's always there for Layla...

"I know you cared about him," Zayne said, threading his fingers through mine. "But don't forget about me. I'm here for you. I always will be."
My breath caught around a sob.
He lowered his head and after a second, his lips brushed my cheek. Only Zayne, who knew what I could do to anyone with a soul, would dare to get that close. "Okay?"

And that's only the beginning. (Literally. I didn't go too far into the book to find those quotes.) Zayne's so sweet and lovable and I can't wait for everyone to SEE how great he is. He totally deserves the title of book boyfriend. Without any doubt at all.


Oh, and Val already reviewed this lovely, lovely book. You can check that out by clicking the image below...

Val also made a pretty Zayne cuddly teaser. Here that is because I LOVE IT!
