Obsidian (Lux #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

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

Mary's Review:

There is a little bit of a back story to how I came across this book.  I met Jennifer Armentrout through her Twitter account and I did not realize that she was an author.  I thought she was just another West Virginia blogger, like me *hangs head*. Then after a conversation I realized, "OOPPS!  She is an author!"  Then I found out that she was going to be at the RT Convention in Chicago.  It was there that I (finally) met her in person and she was so kind and sweet.  However, I still had not read any of her books.  (Yes, I am a bad Book Nerd) .  

However, I finally found time to read one and I am a fool that I did not read it sooner!  Talk about amazing! Now, I love supernatural boys and Daemon is definitely on that list!

Katy (or Kitten, which Daemon calls her) just moved to West Virginia and Daemon and his twin sister, Dee live next door.  Daemon and Katy DO NOT get along but Katy becomes close friends with Dee.  Daemon does not like this at all but eventually tells Katy the truth.  They are aliens! Katy seems to handle it well.  The problem is the Arum (bad guys) and they want Daemon and Dee's abilities. It just seems like Katy seems to be the weakness. 

There are some awesome twist and turns in this book.  I cannot wait for book 2, Onyx, that comes out in August 2012.

 Be sure to check out the trailer:
