Goodreads Decription: 
Starting over sucks.

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring…. until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth.

Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something…unexpected happens.

The hot alien living next door marks me.

You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.

If I don’t kill him first, that is.

My Review:
What can I say about this amazing book except that once again, Jennifer Armentrout rocks it.

The tension between Katy and Daemon was just....well words don't even come to mind expect, HOT.

I loved every minute of this book and had to pace myself while reading it so I didn't completely devour it all in one sitting.

Who wouldn't love a MC who was also a fanatic book blogger, I mean, how great is that? From one blogger to another, I loved that! It made me relate to the MC right away and made me completely love her for that alone not withstanding her witty humor, feisty attitude and all around awesomeness. She was a heroine after my own heart.

And did I mention hot rude as heck Daemon that just gets under your skin and makes you love him? Talk about bad boys who are jerks yet someone still pull off completely swoon worthy lines and actions. He was a walking talking contradiction that was fascinating to read about, not only completely drool worthy to picture in your mind.

And the whole alien aspect, it just rocked. This book was full of mystery and action, suspense, sexual tension, and twists and turns that will blow you away. It was really hard not reading this all in one sitting. It just flowed so nicely together and left you devouring the pages and wanting more long long after you put it down.

Armentrout truly created an amazing world and characters you will just fall in love with and leave you wanting more.

It is going to be a really long agonizing wait until the next book is out.
