GoodReads Description

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.

Ashley (ashleyc29) | 32 comments I just finished this book last night. It was really good. The two main characters Daemon and Katy had great bantering, which I love in a book.


David Estes (davidestesbooks) | 69 comments I enjoyed it although perhaps not as much as most people. I liked that Katy was a book blogger, very clever of Ms Armentrout to do that. But definitely agree that it was very similar to Twilight as a lot of the negative reviews have pointed out. That doesn't necessarily bother me though because it was a fast and fun read :)

Jessica B | 13 comments I read this and Shadows (Lux, #0.5) by Jennifer L. Armentrout earlier this month. I enjoyed them both and I am looking forward to continuing with the series.

I love the concept and the author really knows how to hook you!

Gillian | 11 comments I read this book a few months ago and loved it! I highly recommend that everyone read Shadows too. It's a short story that's a prequel to this one. I think in a lot of ways I liked Dawson better than Daemon!
