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…

I absolutely loved this book as much as the first! This book kept my attention from beginning to end…I could not put it down. Just when I thought the witty dialogue between Katy and Daemon could not get any better, Jennifer L. Armentrout proved be wrong.  I love the way Armentrout writes her books. I can already tell that when this book series is over, I am going to go into Daemon withdrawals.  This book is dripping with sexual tension, although teen appropriate, it was still very entertaining.  I loved how I could see the characters grow from the last book and I loved how I got to see a different side of Daemon in this book. Although, I really really really liked this book, it kind of fell into a twight-ish rut again (or should I say New Moon).  With the introduction of Blake, I could not help but compare the budding love triangle (which ended quickly) with New Moon.  Thankfully that is where all the comparisons between the Lux series and the Twilight series end and this series by far surpasses Twilight.  If the amazing chemistry between Daemon and Katy was not enough to convince you to read this book, just look up the reviews on Goodreads.  Almost everyone seems to love this book and for good reason.  The only negative thing I can say about this book seriest is that the covers are horrible.
