Every Last Breath (The Dark Elements #3) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Every Last Breath - Jennifer L. Armentrout

The problems I had with this book . . .


Okay, sorry, that’s not a good way to start off this review. I meant, ugh. I don’t know. I mean, in White Hot Kiss it was all fun and stuff, and then Stone Cold Touch ended off with such a bang that I was expecting this book to be all crazy and stuff, and it just didn’t happen.


Like. Why.


First of all, this book just starts off with the whole Lilin situation and Layla rejecting someone so that she can be with the other. Just. Like. That. I mean, it was nice, because it made way for the plot. But, seriously. It started getting annoying after a while. This book’s all like: plot, kissing, plot, kissing, kissing, kissing, plot, kissing, Lilin, mommy, random death, random death, kissing, mommy, death, mommy, kissing, kissing, kissing, and more kissing.




Maybe I’m a minority. But I didn’t exactly enjoy this book as much as I wanted to. It was extremely difficult for me to get through this at a certain point. So, you can imagine my frustration and pain reading this more than I had to.  


Can we talk about the number of times Layla and Roth make out? Like, how are they not sick of each other yet? And the way that Layla dumped Zayne was so annoying because she was like, “Yeah, I had fun from Stone Cold Touch but bye.”


Also, the death of Abbot was completely unresolved. I was so upset when Abbot died. Not because he’s my favorite or anything, but because it left so many things unresolved with Abbot and Layla in general. And, he’s the only father figure that Layla really had.


I think that the Lilin died way too easily. I mean, I guess it was nice that Layla managed to kill the Lilin, meaning she had to kill herself, but it was just over in a second compared to something that we’d had pages and pages of ranting for!


And, OMG. The part when Lilith tells Layla the only time she felt love was when she held her?! Why is this even in the book. Either you love her or you don’t. You can’t hate to love her or love to hate her. It doesn’t work that way. Why?! I mean, the only good thing was that Roth and Layla reflected on this after. Otherwise, who cared?

(show spoiler)


I don’t know. I’m just left really unsatisfied with more questions than when I actually started this. This was a really disappointing book for me, and I enjoyed the first two books much more than this one.
