It's Swoon Worthy Saturday! Saturday is a day for swooning. Swoon Worthy Saturday is a weekly meme where in we present a fictional boy who has swept us off our feet, given us butterflies, made our heart do acrobatics and driven us absolutely crazy!This Saturday's pick is the gorgeous Roth from author Jennifer L. Armentrout's The Dark Elements series. There are so far four books planned in the series, with the second book Stone Cold Touch just recently released on October 21st.
Roth is a tattooed, sinfully hot demon who seems to one of the few characters in the series who truly understands the lead female character, Layla. Despite his roguish ways and spot-on sarcasm, he truly does possess a heart (which is pretty obvious given the first book's ending!).
One of my favourite swoon-worthy Roth scenes has to be this one:
'"You've never been kissed before, have you?"
"That's so not your business." I folded my arms as Roth waited for an answer. "I think it's obvious. I can't kiss anyone. You know, the whole soul-sucking thing makes it difficult."
"Not if you're kissing someone who doesn't have a soul."
I made a face. "And why would I kiss someone who doesn't-"
He moved unbelievably fast. I didn't even have a chance to react.
One second he was standing a good three feet away from me and the next his hands were gently clasping my cheeks. There was an instant when I wondered how something so strong and deadly could hold anything so carefully, but then he titled my head back and lowered his own.'
If that didn't get you fangirling, I don't know what will!
Did you swoon? Are you looking forward to reading more in The Dark Elements series? Let me know in the comment's section below!
Also, be sure to let me know which fictional male you think I should blog about next ;)
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.'
