Obsidian (Lux #1)
Starting over sucks.
When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring…. until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.
And then he opened his mouth.
Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something…unexpected happens.
The hot alien living next door marks me.
You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.
If I don’t kill him first, that is.
When your new to a small town in the middle of well no where it's hard trying to even think about making friends and for Katy making an effort in a small town is crazy to even consider it. Katy is used to being alone though, she manages her blog and loves to find that next great book. So when her mom says to make the effort and introduce herself to the neighbors she does just that. What she didn't expect was to the see the most amazing guy who belonged on billboard ads and be seen everywhere, but that allusion is shattered the moment he opens his mouth. Yup life was a lot better without someone like Daemon to be an ass, and because his twin sister has an interest in Katy and wants to be her friend, so Katy of course wants to Dee friend as well. Daemon hates their friendship and even as so much as tells Dee in front of Katy that this shouldn't be happening. What is his deal right, can't a girl be friends without any complications.
The answer should have never been so hard to hear and when he tells her that his family isn't from around their its hard to believe. Because when a hot alien comes and rescues you any one would run for the hills right? For Katy though because she is 'glowing' with his essence, she needs to be near Daemon at all times. Like thats going to happen, she wouldn't even hung out with him if he was the last alien on earth. Except with just his look he is able to get under Katy skin and she doesn't like it one bit.
With light comes dark and because of her essence she is target number 1. Life shouldn't ever feel this complicated right, liking a guy and hating the same guy should be easy right. Nope, Katy has to not only look over her shoulder for the bad guys she also has to stay away from Ash who just happens to be Daemon's ex and of course one of them. Yup who said life couldn't get interesting in a small town and for Katy her connection to the biggest ass is just one of those things on her list. I loved this because 1 it's by Jennifer and 2 hot guy on cover = hot guy in my fantasies yup dreaming never felt so intriguing before.
5/5 stars, Daemon is now on my mind every second its kinda weird.
