Obsidian (Lux #1)

Blurb: 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 read Half-Blood by Jennifer and absolutely knew I had to read Obsidian and let me just tell you.. This book was AMAZING! So funny, so hot, so.... alien. I read this book in one sitting and when it was over I was so disappointed! I wanted to keep reading more Daemon and Katy. I loved reading their love/hate relationship and had me laughing out loud so many times. Katy is a strong independent girl and I love that about her. She doesn't take crap from no one, especially Daemon. And Daemon, oh my lordy he is one sexy , hot, smart ass with some alien alien mojo. I loved him and his attitude and I understand why he has to be careful with falling in love with a human because of what happened to Dawson. Oh and the fact that Daemon calls her Kitten has me melting to a puddle on the ground. Oh. Em. Gee.
 The story line in this book is great and thought out so well it made this book so much more enjoyable. I loved the flow and writing style. Even though some of the main characters are aliens these guys are all pretty relatable. It was awesome that Katy was a book blogger. The action scenes are intense and awesome. I seriously can't say enough good stuff about this book so seriously just go pick up a copy and read it. You will NOT regret it. It's awesome and it's got hot aliens. What's there not to like? ;)
