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

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

Published by: Harlequin Teen
Genre: YA, Romance, Fantasy

I absolutely adore Jennifer Armentrout. Since the day I started her Covenant series to the recently ended Lux series of which both series are absolutely amazing and may have made me cry a little (or a lot.)

But Every Last Breath was different.

This time there were no waterworks. Strange you might think? Or perhaps you might think I've become less emotional. The actual reason was simply I had no emotions for the ending. Okay so I did and they were a little negative because I wasn't completely happy. Yes there's a happy ending for our troubled love triangle but at the same time, it just read quite rushed and made me a little mad.

Yes I am aware there was a poll to see which of the two guys out dear Layla would end up with. Yet I didn't want her to be with either. She's a VERY strong female lead with the tendancy to get a little caught up with everything, but in the end she didn't really need to choose one or the other. She's less than eighteen years old. Christ. If I was with someone from that age then compared to my age now, I'd cry and probably wish I'd remained single because we don't have the best taste then, plus we experience new things daily. Off topic slightly there. But Layla didn't need to choose Roth or Zayne in that book. It could have been left open for a possible sequel in that sense. 

Back to the main story though, I thought it was a good storyline, it concludes the series like a gift box wrapped in a wonky but tied bow. Yes visualise such a thing. It was complete and good but there was room for improvement ie more words to be said I think. But this is just my opinion.

I'll forever love Armentrout and her books, the way I'll probably always sing along to swifty. 

Every Last Breath can be bought from Amazon UK and Amazon US now.
