Holy alien babies everywhere...

Photobucket
Since reading Obsidian, this pesky jerkface alien has been invading my thoughts. It's not that I care...I don't, not really. I mean, it's just a little embarrassing. I lust after him. In public. In the shower. Sleeping. (I once had a dream I met Pepe and we talked and took a walk...sadly, I woke up before I jumped his bones) He's everywhere with me and always on my mind. Curse you, JLA!

Help! Help!

I swear, a Luxen just zapped me! or...maybe, I'm still in shock from that ENDING!

God! What a roller-coaster ride Onyx was. I was happy, sad, frustrated, giddy, pissed, scared, helpless...I was probably a little OVER emotional but you know what? Anyone who's read Jennifer's books understands this. And if you haven't and your thinking I'm crazy and cracked like Humpty Dumpty...*snort* Your crazy. You're the one missing out. *sticks tongue out*

There are a few new characters added to the series in Onyx. I can't promise that you will like them but I can promise that that love triangle everyone was so worried about when the blurb for Onyx was released with the mention of a new guy...yeah, there is no need to worry over that. Of course, the new guy does get Daemon riled up and jealous--which is extremely entertaining and insanely cute. *giggles* So, he's good for that.

Katy does experience a couple of those frustrating heroine moments where your sitting back, reading, and groaning at her mistakes. They aren't obvious, not really, but you are kind of like REALLY? PLEASE! JUST GO SUCK FACE WITH DAEMON! I mean, dude, that's what I would rather be doing...

Goodness...Daemon.

I thought he was hot when he was an ass but when he puts his feelings out there, fights for what he wants? (Or should I say who?) OMFGOODNESS! That vulnerability and the fierceness he showed, it had me shaking. I was once again wishing (hoping, dreaming) to switch places with Katy (like every single other Lux fan). I'm sooo sooo happy that she came to her senses. I was getting ready to become a fictional character, slip into my kindle, and slap her. And then...maybe, lure (steal) Daemon away. But damn if she didn't have her mind right before I got a chance to really think too much about my plans for his kidnapping.

The ending! Shit! I'm relieved and worried. My emotions are conflicted and I'm not sure what to expect in Opal. Onyx was a complete game changer. So much was revealed...

Until Opal...*sad face*

“You’re not dying,” he said.
“How do you know?”
His eyes latched onto mine. “Because I’d never let that happen.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“Look at the time." I tipped my chin toward the clock. "It's past midnight. It's January second. You lost."
For several moments he stared at the clock like it was an Arum he was about to blast into the next county and then his eyes found mine. Daemon smiled. "No. I didn't lose. I still won.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“Memories, even bittersweet ones, are better than nothing.”

“Say it."
"Say what?"
"Tell me what you told me earlier."
"I love you."
"That's all I ever need to hear."
"Those three words?"
"Always those three words.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“Kitten,” he growled roughly.
I kissed him softly, sliding my hands into his silky locks, letting the pieces slide through my fingers. I tasted in him my own rising desire, my own need and heartache. Thrilling. Frightening. I pulled back.
“Kitten,” he said again, voice strained. “You don’t get to do that and then stop. That’s not how it works.”
I stared at him, my breath stalling in my lungs.
“Not when you’re mine.” Daemon backed us up and slid down the wall, pulling me on his lap so I was straddling him. “And you’re mine.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“I could always give you a teaser. You bookish people love teasers, don't you?”

You and me. No one else.”

“And what a lovely reputation that is.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“That's the funny thing about trying to escape. You never really can. Maybe temporarily, but not completely.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“Daemon was a total babe, but he was stab-worthy, which at times zeroed out the babe part. Not always, though.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“Cookie?" he offered, holding a cookie full of chocolate chips.
Upset tummy or not, there was no way I could refuse that. "Sure."
His lips tipped up one side and he leaned toward me, his mouth inches from mine. "Come and get it."
Come and get...? Daemon placed half the cookie between those full, totally kissable lips.
Oh, holy alien babies everywhere...”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“Crossing the room, he stopped infront of me. "I'm not going to bite."
"That's good."
"Unless you want me to," He said with a devilish grin.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“Daemon pressed his forehead against mine. "Oh, I still want to strangle you. But I'm insane. You're crazy. Maybe that's why. We just make crazy together.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“That kind of love should've been able to beat sickness. That kind of love should've conquered anything.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“Jesus.” Blake rubbed his throat. “You have anger management problems. Its like a disease.”
“There’s a cure and it’s called kicking your ass.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“Your mail could've waited." Daemon followed me into the kitchen. "What is it? Just books?"
Grabbing the OJ from the fridge, I sighed. People who didn't heart books didn't understand.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“Can I…?” There was a pause and my heart stuttered. “Can I just hold you? That’s all…that’s all I want.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“I understood books. I did not understand boys—especially alien boys.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“Maybe on day I can be just as lazy as you and turn off lights without moving.”
“That’s something to aspire to.”
… “God, you’re so modest.”
“Modesty is for saints and losers. I’m neither.”
“Wow, Daemon, just wow.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“Maybe they’re getting some bow-chicka-pow-wow.”
I looked at him. “Ew.”
He flashed his teeth. “She’s definitely not my type.” His gaze dropped to my lips, and parts of me quivered in response to the heat in his gaze. “But now I totally have that on my mind.”
I was breathless. “You’re a dog.”
“If you pet me, I’ll—“
“Don’t even finish that sentence,” I said, fighting a grin.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“Okay, you're prone to moments of great dickdom, but you're not that bad.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“What was that?” he whispered, eyes narrowed. There was no mistaking the amusement in the tilt to his lips, though. “Very bad kitty…”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“It’s not me I’m worried about. If they think you blew a satellite out of orbit, they could see you as a threat.”
“Of they could just think I’m that awesome.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“If you fall and break something, I’m going to be irritated.”
Daemon grabbed my arm as I started to slip.
“Sorry, not all of us can be as awesome---“ I squealed as he slid an arm around my back and lifted be into his arms. Daemon zipped us up the driveway, wind and snow blowing at my face. He put me down, and I stumbled to the side, dizzy. “Could you give me a warning next time?”
He grinned as he knocked on the door. “And miss that look on your face? Never.”
Sometimes I seriously wanted to just punch him in the face, but it made me warm in all the right place to see this side of him again, too.
“You’re insufferable.”
“You like my kind of suffering.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“Damon Laughed. “I’m only at the service of one person in particular.”
My cheeks flamed as I scooted my chair over. “You are not servicing me in any way.”
He leaned in, closing my newly gained distance. “Not yet.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“You always blush when you lie.”
“I do not.” I felt the flush spread down my neck.
“If you keep lying, I think I will have to leave,” he threatened halfheartedly. “I don’t feel like my virtue is safe.”
“You’re virtue?” I huffed. “Whatever.”
“I know how you get.” His eyes closed.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“I…I was just excited.”
“Yeah, I’d say you were,” Dee said, grinning like an idiot.
Daemon was staring at me like he’s just won the lottery. “I kind of like this level of excitement. Makes me think of—“
“Daemon!” both of us shouted.
“What?” He grinned, tousling Dee’s hair. “I was only suggesting—“
“We know what you were suggesting.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“I’m not going to do anything stupid. And even if what I plan is risky and insane, it’s a well-thought-out level of stupidity.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“You know what I’ve been thinking?”
Why I hadn’t crawled over the center console and into his lap yet? Because damn if I was wondering that very thing, but the car was way too small for those kind of Shenanigans.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“Daemon was the pissy pink elephant in the room with a bad attitude”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“I nodded, wondering how one person could single-handedly ruin everything within a minute. It was a talent.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“This car sucks.”
“It was your idea. I, on the other hand, think this car if perfect size. But that might be because I’m not the size of a mountain.”
He snickered. “You’re the size of a little, itty bitty doll.”
“If you say a vacant doll, I will hurt you.” I wound the necklace chain around my fingers. “Got that?”
“Yes, ma’am.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“We’re still going to be seeing each other,” he murmured. “And don’t even lie. I know that makes you happy, You told me you wanted me.”
Hold your horses. “When?”
“At the lake.” He slanted his headm and I should’ve pulled back. His lips curved knowingly against mine, and he let go of my wrist. “You said you wanted me.”
Both of my hand were on his chest. They had a mind of their own. I claimed no responsibility for them. “I had a fever. Lost my mind.”
“Whatever, Kitten.” Daemon gripped my hips, lifting me onto the edge of he desk with an ease that was disturbing. “I know better.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“With my name on her lips and with barely anything separating us, I felt the last of my control slipping. Whitish-red light radiated off of me, bathing Kat in the warm glow. There was nowhere that my hands didn’t explore, and the way her body arched into the slightest touch, I was awed and consumed. Kissing her and drawing her deep inside me, I never wanted this to end. She was perfect to me. She was mine, and I wanted her more than I wanted anything in my life.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“This was a bad idea,” I whispered.
“It was probably the smartest idea you’ve ever had.”
I rubbed my palms on my hips.
“It’s going to take a lot more
than Thanksgiving dinner and a Christmas tree to get laid.”
“Damn. There goes my whole plan.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“I’m going to get changed,” I said.
“Need help?”
“Wow. You’re so chivalrous, Daemon.”
His smile widened, flashing deep dimples. “Well, the experience
would be mutually beneficial. I promise.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“Whoa. It was hard to stick to my resolve of not caving to the ridiculous notion of us being together when he was actually…nice, and when he stared at me like I was the last piece of chocolate in the whole world.
Which made me think of that damn chocolate chip cookie in his mouth.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“I came over to apologize.”
“What?” I was shocked, awed, and shocked some more”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“His brows were lowered in concentration. Thick, sooty lashes hid his eyes.
They lifted and his lips spread into a grin.
I was in so much trouble.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“What? I’m not suppose to date or hang out with anyone now?”
Daemon smiled. “Anyone human, yes.”
“Whatever.” I shook my head, standing. “This is a stupid conversation. I’m not dating anyone anyway, but if I were, I wouldn’t stop just because you said so.”
“You wouldn’t?” His hand shot out, tucking back a strand of hair behind my ear. “We’ll just have to see about that.”
I stepped sideways, keeping distance between us. “There’s nothing to see.”
Challenge filled his eyes. “If you say so, Kitten.”
Folding my arms, I sighed. “This isn’t a game.”
“I know, but if it were, I’d win.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“We passed Dee’s empty bedroom. It looked like Pepto-Bismol threw up in there.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“Some things are best left...unknown, you know? People search for answers and they don’t always like what they get. Sometimes the truth is worse than the lie.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“What are you doing out here, Kat?"
Several moments passed before I could speak "I just blew up a bunch of windows.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“It wasn't like there was an alien hiding under the table, moving crap around for fun.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, Onyx

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“You're right. This is a lot. I faced him. I thought that you were normal. And you're not. You're telling me that I have the DOD gunning for me. That if I ever decide to leave this place, I'm going to be a Snack Pack for an Arum. And better yet, I am going to lose complete control over whatever powers I have and wipe out a family of four, then be put down! All I wanted to do today was eat some god damn fries and be normal!”
