Starting now I'll be showcasing what I'm reading through a weekly "What I'm Reading Wednesday" blog. You'll also be able to see my progress in a widget on the side of my blog.
For my first WIR-Wednesday, I'm reading:
Onyx (Lux Novel Book 2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
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 is 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…
Why I chose this book:
I am completely addicted to this series. I first read about the series on The Book Believer's blog and while I disagree with the post and really like the covers, the post got me interested in reading the books. I got the first book, Obsidian, free on my Kindle and devoured it in one night. Who knew aliens could be so sexy?
Naturally once I finished book one I needed to get my hands on Onyx (Book 2), and quickly. I needed to find out what happened next in the world of Daemon, Katy, Dee, and the gang. My nearest Barnes and Noble didn't have it so I went to the library and voila! The copy I have is a bit tattered, but I'm tearing through it almost as quickly as I did with Obsidian.
Who this book is for:
I recommend this book for young adults, new adults, and anyone who loves a love story (and a sexy alien next door), although I suggest starting with Obsidian so you know the whole story. This book has kept me going all day and I am having to fight to put it down.
