Description: 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.
Obsidian had me hooked from the first page, really from the cover. Sometimes I wonder if it is ever made into a movie if they will ever find anyone to live up to the cover model's image. Daemon is hot, but I said that already didn't I. He is also arrogant, stubborn, vain, and loyal. I love Katy. I think she is awesome. She is a fellow book lover and blogger, and she doesn't take any crap from Daemon. I think she is one pretty kick-butt heroine. The story absolutely sucks you in and you want to crawl up in there and live a while. The chemistry between Daemon and Katy is off the scales hot, and so is the action and drama. I love Dee, Daemon's sister and Katy's new BFF. She is a doll. All the supporting characters are well written and you feel like you get to know them all....the good, the bad, and the ugly Arum. Seriously, only Jennifer could make Aliens so interesting and so freaking hot. If you haven't read it, you need to read it, for real, seriously, make the time, you won't be sorry. There are some books that are on my to be read list, and some that are on my read again list, but Obsidian is on my read again and again and again list.
I wanted to leave you with a few teasers from Obsidian. These are from the extras at the end of the book from Daemon's point of view. Enjoy!
Eventually my gaze landed on the front of her shirt. My Blog is Better than your Vlog. What in the world did that mean? And why would she have that on her shirt.....and the words "Blog" and "Better" were stretched taut. I swallowed. Not a good sign.
She really needed to get her cute ass off my porch before I did something stupid. Like smile at the way she was blushing. Sexy even. "Going once...."
I knew I was being an ass at this point, but I was perversely enjoying the spunk slowly igniting behind her eyes, baiting me. And....the flush of anger was sort of hot in a weird, there's really something wrong with me kind of way.
My hand stilled, but I didn't move it away. Wasn't like she was going to fall on her face now, but I....I just didn't, and I wasn't at all okay with that. I clenched my jaw.
My fingers slipped along the curve of her cheek as my head tilted. I was going to regret this - holy crap was I ever, but I wasn't stopping. Our lips were only a breath away......
"Nothing," I replied, jumping from the swing. I glanced at a silent, dazed Kat. Her gray eyes were still hazy and wide. Freaking beautiful. "Just earning bonus points."
If you haven't read Obsidian, I hope that after reading Daemon's teasers, you will want to, and if you have...... well, we all need as many swooning hot alien Daemon moments as we can get.
