Obsidian (Lux 1) by Jennifer Armentrout

Goodreads Summary: 
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.

My Review:
This was by far one of my favorite books of the year. I was a little iffy about aliens but, trust me these are aliens you want to read about! Katy moves to a new town and quickly finds out that her neighbor is a pretty hot guy that happens to be kind of a jerk haha. She ends up hanging out with him more then she thought and he is tolerable…sometimes.

The chemistry between Daemon and Katy is definitely there! Even if they are snarky at each other a lot of the time. It brings a whole new meaning to the love/hate relationship. About halfway through this book I was like, if they don’t kiss already I am going to go crazy! I’m so glad they did even if it turned out horribly. One of my absolute favorite things was Daemon calling Katy, Kitten. It was the perfect annoyingly sweet thing ever! Deep down I think Katy likes it when Daemon calls her that.

Katys relationship with Dee is also interesting. They seem like they fit together so nicely as friends. And the way Daemon is so protective of his sister is actually really nice. Dee is a loveable character and I hope she finds true love!

The ending when all hell breaks loose and Daemon is on his knees holding Katy is heart stopping. I really felt a connection with these characters. It is probably a weird scene to have as a favorite but, it showed the loving part of Daemon as Katy is on the brink of death. I don’t think I could possibly list all of the positive things about this book. Read it people!!! I would highly recommend any of the books by Jennifer Armentrout and don't forget to check out all the awesomeness of Daemon Invasion!!! Some amazing prizes going out!
