Onyx (Lux #2) – Jennifer L. Armentrout

Synopsis:

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

Review:

I will say it again…I am in love with this series.  The characters are so easy to fall in love with.  I love the sarcasm and wit in the dialogue.  There were several times that I actually laughed out loud while reading.  That is rare for me.  I am the type to laugh internally and not call attention to myself by laughing aloud.

The relationships in the 2nd book are much more developed and the passion and denial between “Kat” and “Daemon” still give the butterflies in the tummy effect.

The pace of the book is still fast making it easy to read and hard to put down.

This is going to be another series that I will have to purchase for myself even though I have already read it.  My favorite quote by Oscar Wilde is “If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.”

I think this series is “multiple read” worthy 🙂

I would recommend this for older teens and young adults…there is some language and there is implied sex but nothing overt or detailed.
