Today marks Day 31 of 31 Days of #BookLove – the final day. Rather than review all 323 books I read year, I decided to share one of my favorites. I meant to wrap this up in December, but I got hit with the plague. So…the #BookLove continues into 2014.
OBSIDIAN (LUX #1) by Jennifer Armentrout
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Synopsis (from Goodreads):
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.
What I Liked:
THIS SERIES. It’s like crack. Daemon is a jerk to start with, but you find out the boy has his reasons. And once he saves Katy’s life, that’s it – these two are stuck together. There’s a lot of heat between them and a TON of sexual tension. It’s great fun to read, though there were times I wanted to slap Daemon. Yes, he’s rejecting Katy to keep her safe and to keep his family safe. I liked that Katy had a backbone to her. Admittedly, I liked the first book enough to keep reading, but it wasn’t until the third book in the series that I solidly fell in love. And by the end of the fourth book? I wanted to throw my iPad across the room at that ending because it has left me yearning for the final book in the series, and I was bitter that I had to wait. Read all of them. This weekend.
Like the sound of the LUX SERIES? Give the author a little #BookLove. Jennifer Armentrout tweets @JLArmentrout.
BONUS: First, let’s talk about these covers. The cover models are insanely hot. And how much do I love the ORIGIN cover where he looks like he’s about to burn down the world to get his girl back? Meep! I can honestly say that the books live up to the covers. And ORIGIN ended on a major cliffhanger, so I can’t wait to get the final book in the series. Why must we wait???? See the series here.
