Synopsis:

The last thing Dawson Black expected was Bethany Williams. As a Luxen, an alien life-form on Earth, human girls are…well, fun. But since the Luxen have to keep their true identities a secret, falling for one would be insane. Dangerous. Tempting. Undeniable.

Bethany can't deny the immediate connection between her and Dawson. And even though boys aren't a complication she wants, she can't stay away from him. Still, whenever they lock eyes, she's drawn in. Captivated. Lured. Loved.

Dawson is keeping a secret that will change her existence…and put her life in jeopardy. But even he can't stop risking everything for one human girl. Or from a fate that is as unavoidable as love itself.

Review:

To be honest? The first time I read Obsidian, I only liked it. I struggled with understanding Daemon’s douche-baggery ways and his hot and cold feelings towards Katy only frustrated the ever loving daylights out of me. I put the series aside (shocker, I know!), and then one day I ended up seeing this book on sale. I thought I’d give the series another shot and boy am I SO thankful I did! THIS is the book that sucked me back into this amazing series! THIS is the book that allowed me to gain so much insight and understanding into Daemon’s plight. After finishing Shadows, I desperately had to read the whole series! Lux ultimately became my favorite series ever, Daemon is THE BBF that I compare all others too, and JLA is now my favorite author!

This…this was intense. More so than the first time she kissed a boy. The kicker was they weren’t even touching. She didn’t even know him.

This book is so much more than a novella introducing you to the characters and setting the scene for Obsidian. You become swept away in the love story of Dawson and Bethany. Bethany is a girl who has been forced to leave behind her friends and start anew, all in the of family. Dawson is an alien who is trapped in every sense that is possible. Being monitored by the DOD, being told who to mate by their Elder’s, having to hide who they are from the public and always knowing that if they become too attached to a human that the DOD will make the human disappear. Dawson is frustrated at the unfairness that is his and his siblings life. So what is Dawson to do when he can’t help but become infatuated with this human girl? Their love story had me constantly grinning and of course I fell head over heels in love with Dawson. You also come to learn about Dawson’s sibling, Dee and Daemon, who are both in their own right addicting!

She. Spoke. To. Him. First. It was like winning the lottery, getting laid, and climbing the highest cliff all rolled into one. But he needed to play it cool, because he was trending into lame-o land at a quick pace.

Of course I loved this book. I became so intimately attached to the characters and their world in West Virginia. I spent a good portion of Shadows smiling and then that ending? That ending ruined me. I bawled my eyes out, and then the moment they were dry I started Obsidian. This is a brilliantly executed novella, and I will definitely be recommending it to all of my friends who haven’t read the Lux series yet!
