The last thing Dawson Black expected was Bethany Williams. As a Luxen, an alien life form on Earth, human girls are…well, fun. But since the Luxen have to keep their true identities a secret, falling for one would be insane. Dangerous. Tempting. Undeniable. 

Bethany can’t deny the immediate connection between her and Dawson. And even though boys aren’t a complication she wants, she can’t stay away from him. Still, whenever they lock eyes, she’s drawn in. Captivated. Lured. Loved. 

Dawson is keeping a secret that will change her existence...and put her life in jeopardy. But even he can’t stop risking everything for one human girl. Or from a fate that is as unavoidable as love itself.

My Take:
When the government has a handle on what, where, when, and how you do things its tough to even consider love into that equation. Especially when your in their sights because of where you come from, and its not from Kansas thats for sure. For Dawson, life is supposed to be like this school, protect your family and find someone just like you. But when a new girl transfers in and sits near Dawson, its kinda hard to think straight. For Bethany, moving into a new town was hard and making new friends was even harder, so being new isn't always a good thing. Unless of course their is a hot guy looking at you the way you dream about being looked at. Falling in love wasn't ever suppose to be so hard but because of their differences and of course his family on his case, falling for someone of is human never felt so easy for Dawson. Being with Bethany is like as easy as breathing of course its until she knows what he is she might not feel the same.

Finding out your boyfriend isn't from around is just another obstacle that Bethany has to think about, of course with danger at every corner its even harder to have one simple date. With weird glares from others like him Bethany also has to very cautious about the government and of course enemies even greater than the feds. Yup life just keeps on truckin' right, love isn't always easy and in order for them to be together they need to go through all obstacles.

I really enjoyed this just like I did with the first one, Dawson is so much more easy to actually swoon over I mean Daemon is HOT but his brother is more soulful and he appreciates what he has and lives in the now, I guess reading from Dawson point of view made me also realize how is brother can be so hostile and because of any threat. I loved the fact though that even though Daemon didn't like them together he knew she made his brother happy and he left them, I so swooned after that. Yup with these two brothers its hard to choose its like TVD all over again don't know which on I want more all I know is that this was so epically written I am so looking forward to the next one 2012 coudln't have been a better year to bring us these amazing men.

5/5 Stars
