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.
This review is long, long overdue. I read it while I had a bunch of life stuff going on last year and had to let my blog slide for way longer than I wanted to. Anyway, here are my immediate thoughts I posted on GoodReads I posted after reading:
"UGH I AM SO MAAAAAAD! I thought the second book was out already for some reason, so as soon as I finished this I rushed to get the second one... only to find out it doesn't come until August! FML!"
Yeah, that's exactly how it went. I was tricked, I tell you! I had some assumption that the next book in this series, Onyx was already out. It wasn't. I was seriously upset. Which leaves you with a big chunk of information: you're going to want to get right to the next book after you read this one. It's aaaamaaaazingly addicting!
I remember hating Daemon at first. I loathed him hard... and I remember thinking, "Good! She needs to stay away from him. He's trouble! He's an ass!" I even remember thinking that Jennifer L Armentrout might have taken 'bad boy' a little too far, and I wasn't sure if he could be redeemed.
Luckily, I was wrong. Daemon is seriously amazing and I'm in love! I'm in love with her writing, her characters, her stories: Jennifer L Armentrout... I'm not sure she can do any wrong.
And the main character Katy is amazing. She's a book blogger, she's strong, she's opinionated and she's just a very realistic girl you can love.
Please, read this series! It's has an interesting sci-fi twist that reminds me a lot of the tv show I loved back in my teens, Roswell and instead of sweet Max, we have Daemon, who definitely good at hiding his inner good boy, but it's definitely in there, I know it!
