This is a stand alone novel that is an adult spin-off of the Lux Series You do not need to read a Lux book to read Obsession and vice versa.

He’s arrogant, domineering, and... To. Die. For.

Hunter is a ruthless killer. And the Department of Defense has him firmly in their grasp, which usually doesn’t chafe too badly because he gets to kill bad guys. Most of the time he enjoys his job. That is, until he’s saddled with something he’s never had to do before: protect a human from his mortal enemy.

Serena Cross didn’t believe her best friend when she claimed to have seen the son of a powerful senator turn into something... unnatural. Who would? But then she witnesses her friend’s murder at the hands of what can only be an alien, thrusting her into a world that will kill to protect their secret.

Hunter stirs Serena’s temper and her lust despite their differences. Soon he’s doing the unthinkable—breaking the rules he’s lived by, going against the government to keep Serena safe. But are the aliens and the government the biggest threats to Serena’s life… or is it Hunter?

Wow. I don’t even know how to explain how stupid Obsession is and how much I loved it anyway. DON’T EVEN KNOW. I’m just gonna list the peeves right off the bat…

-The fact that this picture could sum up the entire book:

-The fact that the TSTL heroine can’t simply follow directions. BUT at least she knows to find a weapon when she needs one, I’ll give her that.

-The fact that the hero touches her without her permission in her sleep. BOOHISS!

-The fact that there is absolutely no dynamic development in the characters and no show of growth. The love and relationship is very fast paced (like all the other love stories out there starts from lust and goes to love straight away).

-The fact that the science behind this isn’t explained and their powers are just there JUST BECAUSE ALIENS, PEOPLE.

-The fact that there’s no family involved.

-The fact that they have no jobs or hobbies or anything really….

IT’S ALL ABOUT THAT ALIEN SEX, MAN. But you know what? I still loved it. I suspended belief like all hell and melted with all that cheese in the story. Yeah, the guy is an asshole-blue-eyed-kickass-lickable-abs-lolipop-sucking-sexy ALIEN…I mean you would have to seriously go into this novel knowing and believing that this is just about some dude protecting some chick and trying to get into her pants all the time.

-The fact that the dude is literally turned on by everything and he’s always rock hard.

And also…he’s got a big ole dick. Yes, that is mentioned often.

He protects her from bad guys. He tries to not have sex with her. He saves her again. He ends up having sex with her. Everything else is just meaningless drivel. Go into it knowing that and you’ll eat the crap out of this book. I mean…I devoured Obsession like no one’s business.

      Thanks! I think Obsidian is YA and that one I have on my list as well. *crosses fingers* I hope it’s good!

      It’s hard to pull through when that happens. But some people love it, y’know…others not so much. Just depends on what you like.

    LOL oh, JLA. I don’t understand her appeal and yet I’ve found some of her books appealing. Apparently her on-going new adult trilogy has a love triangle, the outcome of which will be decided by fan votes on her website….not sure how I feel about that, but mostly I think it’s a bit dumb.
