Being connected to Daemon Black sucks…

Thanks to his alien mojo, Daemon’s determined to prove what he feels for me is more than a product of our bizarro connection. So I’ve sworn him off, even though he’s running more hot than cold these days. But we’ve got bigger problems.

Something worse than the Arum has come to town…

The Department of Defense are here. If they ever find out what Daemon can do and that we're linked, I’m a goner. So is he. And there's this new boy in school who’s got a secret of his own. He knows what’s happened to me and he can help, but to do so, I have to lie to Daemon and stay away from him. Like that's possible. Against all common sense, I'm falling for Daemon. Hard.

But then everything changes…

I’ve seen someone who shouldn’t be alive. And I have to tell Daemon, even though I know he’s never going to stop searching until he gets the truth. What happened to his brother? Who betrayed him? And what does the DOD want from them—from me?

No one is who they seem. And not everyone will survive the lies…

Review

The second book to this series was completely PHENOMENAL!!! There are so many plot twists and things that I would NEVER be able to guess. If it is possible, this book series is getting better and better as there are more books in the series!! The first book was awesome, but this book definitely topped it!

This book is packed with so much mystery, romance, and sexual tension, that I felt like I was on an emotional roller coaster the entire time! As I read, I understood more of what Daemon is like and why he is like that.

My Favorite Parts of the Book:
  1. Katy
  2. DAEMON
  3. KATY AND DAEMON!!!!!!!!

What I Didn't Like:

writing-bad

Daemon and Katy are officially my new favorite YA couple!!!

SQUEE!!!! I WANT OPAL RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!!!!

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.

Review

Ok, I've been wanting to get my hands on this book for a while how. So when I got it, I started reading it right away. And...I LOVED this book! For me, I was definitely captivated with this book right from the beginning. I loved the main character. She is fun, sarcastic, witty, and someone almost anyone can relate to. The guy, Daemon, is is a total arrogant, hot jerk and COMPLETELY swoon worthy. There is a lot of romance, arguing, and action that more than half the time, I had like an emotional overload (in a good way)!! While reading this book, I couldn't put it down for even a single second!!

After I finished the book, I had only one thought in my mind "I NEED THE NEXT BOOK!" The book ends beautifully and makes you want to read the next book.
