Oblivion - Jennifer L. Armentrout (Lux #1.5)

Published Date: December 1, 2015
Genre: Young Adult
Synopsis: Experience the epic love story of OBSIDIAN as told by its hero, Daemon Black…

I knew the moment Katy Swartz moved in next door, there was going to be trouble. Lots of it.

And trouble’s the last thing I need, since I’m not exactly from around here. My people arrived on Earth from Lux, a planet thirteen billion light years away. Plus, if there’s one thing I know, it’s that humans can’t be trusted. We scare them. We can do things they only dream about, and honestly, we make them look weak as hell. ‘Cuz they are.

But Kat is getting to me in ways no one else has, and I can't stop myself from wanting her—or wanting to use my powers to protect her. She makes me weak, and I’m the strongest of our kind, tasked with protecting us all. So this one simple girl…she can mean the end for us. Because the Luxen have an even bigger enemy—the Arum, and I need to stay on my game.

Falling for Katy—a human—won't just place her in danger. It could get us all killed, and that’s one thing I’ll never let happen...

I was raving the hell out of this book and I got it in both paperback and e-book. Why you ask? The paperback only has one book out of three in Daemon's point of view and book nerds, I need my Daemon and for him to make some alien babies with because I mean, look at that face and those eyes are definitely something die for.

He is the alpha male around school. Every guy is either jealous of him or wants to be him. Every girl wants to be with him. That is, until he meets Kitten... I mean, Kat. She's feisty as hell and you'll understand why he calls her that nickname. 

At the hands of Jennifer L. Amentrout and her impossible expectations that she sets for men is a bit harsh but I love the way my heart melts at the sounds of her words. Needless to say, I needed a lot of damn tissues for this book and to be honest, when Jennifer L. Armentrout told us that she was writing a book in Daemon's perspective, I dropped all things and got on the freaking internet. 

Daemon tries to act like a macho man especially around Kat to scare her off. I love Kat because she can stand her ground and that is what pushed me to actually want to continue the stories. I hate stories with girls who cannot take care of themselves. Like are you kidding me? We are women. We aren't helpless. She also was the reason why I started a blog. I mean, you just kind of had to seeing how much fun Katy was having with it. 

Here, I will insert a huge thank you to other bloggers and authors for giving me early copies of their books to read them. Of course, I get an influx of them right around finals week. DAMN YOU! I want to read and not study now!

Gosh. Well, rant over. As Daemon told his perspective, you kind of got over the fact that he was being a butthole to Katy from her perspective (the original Lux series) because he had valid reason to be that way. He didn't want to get close with a human. I mean, haven't you heard of human cooties? Duh. Well, I think that he was in all honesty, the sweetest freaking thing on the planet and you can't get over it. 

By the second book (in e-book version only), you kind of get annoyed with Kat and Blake, Bart, Brock, whatever his name is. He's not important. All I can say about him is that he is so annoying. I mean, he was annoying Kat's perspective but now that I read Daemon's, I just want to strangle that kid. 

By the third... I was in tears. I was so done with everything and I fell into a book hole. I just don't know where to go from here because I need more aliens in my life. 

Sigh... Goodbye, my sweet Daemon. UGH! Pain to my heart! I rate this a 4.8 out of 5 stars because well Jennifer never disappoints me. 

Anyways... Blog you later, awesome book nerds. See you next time.
