Obsidian by Jennifer L. 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 Thoughts:

The first time I read this was a little over a year ago and I instantly fell in love with it and all the characters. I was in the mood for a fun, entertaining book with lots of wit and humour, but also with a little romance and mystery so I picked this up again! 

I loved this as much as I did the first time. I just loved getting back into this world Jennifer Armentrout has created. The main character, Katy, is one of my favorite characters. She's hilarious, loves blogging, reading books, and can stick up for herself! I'll admit at some points in the book she did things and I was all 'you're so going to get in trouble for that' but I still loved her character! I totally loved that she was a blogger and loved to read, it made it a lot easier to connect and relate to her. 

Daemon Black, the love interest in this series, is totally swoon worthy. Definitely one of my top favorite book boyfriends. He's a gorgeous douche-bag with sweet moments and you just can't help but fall in love with him. I absolutely love the interactions between Katy and Daemon, it's hilarious. There were some points where Daemon's douche-bagness went a little too far but Katy always stood up for herself and never let him just walk all over her which I loved. 

Even though this series is about aliens, The Luxen, it isn't a very sci-fi novel, I'd say it's more paranormal. I really liked the mystery part of this novel and trying to figure out what's going on with everything and just learning more about the Luxen's and everything in general. 

I definitely recommend this to lovers of YA Paranormal Romance! It's a very addicting, entertaining and hilarious read that will make you want to stay up all night to finish reading it, but it will be worth it in the morning! 

My Rating: 5/5 stars!
