Every choice has consequences and Layla Shaw faces tougher choices than most. Light or darkness? Hardest of all, Layla has to decide which side of herself to trust. What will she do with the new problem at hand? A Lilin, the deadliest of demons, has been unleashed, wreaking havoc on all around her. To keep her best friend from a fate worse than death, Layla must strike a deal with the enemy while saving her city from destruction.

Torn between two worlds, Layla has no certainties, especially when an old bargain comes back to haunt them all. But sometimes, when secrets are everywhere and the truth seems unknowable, you have to listen to your heart, pick a side and fight like hell.

I absolutely love this book! It was so so good! It is filled with action, humor, love, and a bit of drama and I loved every second of it. The storyline is so intriguing and once again kept me sucked in from start to finish. The characters are still wonderful and I love them and where they end up by the end. This book has so many cute moments that made me smile. My only complaint is that I wish there would have been an extended epilogue more than 6 months in the future with a bit more info about the characters and their futures. Other than that I don't know what else to say beyond that this is a fantastic book. This is my favorite JLA series for sure and I'd even take it a step further and say this is my favorite book of hers =) She is an amazing author and I love her writing so much!

All I can say about this series is WOW...I truly didn't want it to end. Absolutely loved every character. But then I can honestly say that about all this authors books. I am mostly a horror fiction, murder mystery reader. But there is something about Jennifers books that even draw this adult in. I couldn't put it down. Well done!

Finished the book last night, but I was still a bit shocked with what happen, and felt like I lost something. Jennifer is my favorite author from the first book she released. But this series stole a bit of my heart. Every last breath was a hard story to read at some point with everything that was happening and with love triangle and all. The book starts with full packed action, with Layla being saved by Roth, and with her true suffering that she almost hurt Zayne in a way she never wanted. But being close to Roth, and almost died, she stops lying to herself and reveals the truth that she loves Roth and he loves her even more. Because, a demon has only one true love. The problem is, she will have to tell Zayne the truth, that she loves him but isn’t in love with him… These words destroyed Zayne, and everything he and Layla thought they had. He really thought they had a future together, and can confront anything that comes along their way. But, what can he really do if Layla is in love with Roth. This isn’t really the biggest of their issues. The Lilin is out loose and consuming souls, killing people and taking their form. All three of them must work together, because they will not stop the Lilin, the Alphas will and destroy everything in their path as well. Will they be able to do it? Will they save the world? I can’t say I loved the ending, meaning I was convinced that Layla was going to end up with Roth because she truly loved him, but I felt so sorry about Zayne. At the middle of the book I was screaming let this poor girl take a breath, then by the last pages, I was sobbing. I felt the hurt that Zayne had because of everything that he has lost, but at the same time I was a bit happy that Layla was safe and with Roth. Mix feelings here. Anyway, I think series is one of my favorites and Jennifer this an amazing job as usual. I highly recommend this books or any other books written by Jennifer L. Armentrout.

Every Last Breath is the third installment in Jennifer L. Armentrout's young adult, paranormal series titled The Dark Elements. Up to this point, this series has been very enjoyable. I haven't been blown away, but as an adult who reads less and less young adult titles, I have thoroughly enjoyed these books. However, while I still liked this third book, and am glad to have some of my questions answered (as well as have the love triangle put to rest), I personally found this book to be never-ending. It just felt soooo long in my opinion. Again, I liked it and would recommend it to readers who are following this series - there are crucial events that take place in this one! But I obviously didn't feel consistently engaged as I wanted it to end far sooner than it did. Note: I was initially under the impression that this story was a trilogy, but when I just looked, it's labeled as a series. Unfortunately, I'm not sure if I will be continuing this series if more books are added. Too bad :( My favorite quote: "...seize life. Seize everything it had to offer, including the tears, the anger and loss. But most of all the laughter and the love. To just seize life because it was fleeting and it was fickle, and no one, not me or anyone I knew, had another day let alone another second promised to them."

I wanted to read Every Last Breath because I adore Jennifer's writing. I love her snarky sense of humor, the ability to draw me into her worlds, connect with the main characters, fall in love with her swoony guys, and always want more. I read the first ones and the novella and love her take on gargoyles, as well as really connecting and feeling for the spot that Layla the main character in this one. She lives in a world of Wardens (the full gargoyles) and Roth, who is an upper level demon, but yet he is so attentive and protective of her and even sacrificed himself for her. Then there is Zayne, who she has always been close to and had a crush on, and it's past time for her to make the choice between them. Layla discovers a lot about herself in this one and begins questioning her label as a hybrid-- half warden and half demon. Layla of course had to make her choice between the two boys in her life, that she loves, and realizes loves her back. I was nervous of which one it was going to be, and her reasoning. I really liked them both, they cared for her, and risked their own life and standings with their respective species/bosses. Each are right for her in their own ways, but for me there was one that stood ahead, but I was determined to support her either way. It did give the other guy a real glimpse of possibilities of moving on and being happy, accepting Layla's decision in good graces and not ostracizing her. But I think the the choice she made was for good reasons, and I love seeing that develop even more. Into really steamy levels that made me sigh. On top of the boy situation, Layla also had to deal with the Lillin, and the fall out from who the Lillin stole a soul from, and how much that hurt her and Stacey. There was a lot of grief for a friend lost as well as part of his family that got caught in the cross fire. It became even more complicated than I could have imagined, but it added depth. I liked the overall resolution including the little glimpse of the beginning of their HEA in the 6 months later. It was neat to see how far all of the characters have come from the start of the series. Layla learned so much about herself, and realized that the labels defining good and evil wasn't black and white. She saw some of the greatest acts of compassion from demons, and some that were on the side of good be intolerant and cruel. Bottom Line: Great conclusion with all the things I've come to expect and love from Jennifer.

Every Last Breath by Jennifer L. Armentrout is the third and final book in the series The Dark Elements. Holy Canola Oil and Wow, just Wow! This book was amazing! There were no down times, no slow spots, just amazing from page one until the end. And what a fantastic ending it was. This is going to be one of those reviews where I am so limited as to what I can say without spoiling anything. Things start right where the previous book left off. The Lilin has taken over Layla’s friend Sam’s body. But not just taken over, he has taken his soul. Layla, of course, feels like this is all somehow her fault, and that she alone is responsible for rescuing Sam’s soul from Hell. Layla is also still filled with guilt over what happened between she and Zayne. She knows that she can’t continue on this way, that she must decide between these two men who are so important to her. Who really does hold her heart? Who is she truly in love with? The beautiful gargoyle shifter that she has loved since she was seven years old or the dark and brooding Crown Prince who looks at her with a longing she might never really understand. Layla starts to notice subtle changes in herself. She isn’t craving souls the way she used to. She’s not cold the way she was. She’s a little faster, and a little stronger. And when she shifts, well, wow! What is happening and what does it all mean? There are many questions as to who and what Layla really is and all questions are answered. “As I parted ways with Stacey, I knew that my promise had done very little to reassure her. Truth was, the promise was one I never should’ve made. Because I had a lot of stupid left in me, and I knew what I had to do.” The Lilin wants Lilith set free and if she is, she will bring on devastation to the world. If she isn’t set free, the Originals will come and do the same. And of course, all the responsibility of figuring all of this out rests on Layla’s shoulders. “What was happening was so much bigger than us, so much more important than what we wanted or desired.” There is so much Layla want to do. She wants to finish high school, go to college. She wants to travel. She’s never been anywhere. She has never been accepted by the clan who raised her, been rejected by those that created her. So why does she feel responsible to fix everything? She could run, go somewhere and hide. But the Layla we have all fallen in love with won’t do that. She’ll fight for what she feels is right, no matter what the sacrifice. This whole series was amazing and the ending was epic. I expected no less. This is Jennifer Armentrout and everything I have read of hers has been equally wonderful and unique. This book will keep you on the edge of your seat from the beginning to the end. But as much as there is ugliness in Layla’s world, there is beauty. She is in love. I sighed so much during this book that I might have hyperventilated. I have to say thank you again to JLA for a wonderfully entertaining series. I don’t know where all your creativity comes from, but I thank you for it.

I stand alone. I am a huge JLA fan. I love this series. I love Zayne. I love Roth. I like Layla. I stayed up till midnight to read this one. I read it straight through. But it crushed me. And I stand alone. Not the story. The story ended nicely with things being taken care of and a list being fulfilled. Not the choice. I expected that. Not the surprises. Though what the witches wanted was painful and sad. Not the death. I was surprised that one death upset me, though. Not the twists. They were classic JLA. No it was the pain of one character that crushed me. I wasn't expecting to be so crushed. I guess that's a testament to how invested I was to these characters. But I couldn't be happy for the rest after that. I could barely hold the book and keep reading. So why 3 stars? Because that's the experience I had. I wish it had been different but it is what it is. Those of the popular team will love this ending. Those of the other team will not. Those that loved them both, like me, may want to take it slower than I did.

Fantastic finish to one of my favorite paranormal romances! I loved the characters, the world-building, and especially the tattoos. Layla's journey has not been easy, she's had some tough choices to make for sure, but she really comes into her own. For that, I'm proud of her. I'm a little sad to say goodbye to her--the guys too. I could not have asked for a better ending though.
