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.

I’m probably one of the last people to start the Lux series, and oh my, I understand crowning Jennifer Armentrout as the queen of YA sexy. Wow, that is a hot book, and yet totally clean.

I personally am not a big fan of Daemon. The bad boy with a jerk attitude just doesn’t cut it for me. But the tension and passion between him and Katy? That I could go for. You don’t have to like him to like that.

I really liked Katy. Not just because she’s a blog blogger who loves books. She is strong and friendly. She might have to remind herself to show her backbone sometimes, but she does it really well. Her smartass sarcasm is also awesome. Very witty and realistic. Especially the agruments between her and Daemon, very entertaining.

Overall, I love the romance in this book. It is definitely the highlight, and the main reason I plan to read the next book. The plot was good too, with no obvious holes or issues, but it isn’t the main attraction of the book. The characters and the hormones are the focus. In a very good way.

  1. I stumbled in this series, to be honest. Daemon had become an intolerable character for me. I’m glad you loved it, though. Katy speaks to a lot of us, doesn’t she? But it drove me nuts when she lets Daemon get away from being a jerk. Lol.
