Onyx (Lux #2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Goodreads description:

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…

Mary's Review:

OK if you remember correctly I am new to this series BUT I AM SO GLAD THAT I AM ON THE BAND WAGON!!!!!! I just read Obsidian (Lux #1) last month and loved it.  Once I was finished I wanted Book 2 SO BADLY!!  Sadly I had to wait until release day. Oh, it was worth the wait.

Best part of the book:  Need I say it again?!?!  Well, I will....DAEMON!!!! He is the best part of this book.  I guess it has something to do with the fact that he is an alien. OH and he is H-O-T!!!  However, in this book there is more to Daemon that we did not see in the last book.  He is a little bit more direct about his feelings towards to Katy (aka Kitten).  We see just how far he will go to protect his family and those he loves.  Another part that I love about this book (that made me laugh a lot) was that Daemon would not call Blake by his name.  He would call him Brad, Brian etc etc.

Not so great about the book:  The only that turns me off from this book is when Katy knows that she is so in love with Daemon but never says it.  I just want to reach through my Kindle and shake her!  But I guess I can understand why she was doing it but it was making me upset! Also, the ending of the book is a huge cliffhanger and that is one thing that I do not like (well, I like it but it frustrates me)

Why read this book:  2 words....HOT....ALIEN.  That is why you should read this book, (HAHA)  Seriously though, this book contains a lot of twist and turns that I did not even see.  I like that Jennifer keeps us on the edge!

Bonus:  There is a scene in the book which I am calling the "Cookie Scene".  Jennifer release a small video of it with Daemon.  I am not responsible for anyone if they pass out from watching this video.  Watch at your own risk!
