Obsession Review

Jennifer l Armentrout

Published: May 31 2013

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?

We all know how amazing Jennifer Armentrout! When I heard that she was writing an adult book based in the Lux world I may have squealed a little. I'm sure a lot of us did. Well I'll tell you this one did not disappoint!

Hunter is an Arum and no one runs his life. He may technically be working for the DOD but he for sure does not take shit from them. I loved his attitude and the way that he carried himself. I love the cocky assholes and that's what Hunter is.

Serena is just an average girl who just wants to live life and not deal with the murder of her best friend. She also does not want to deal with the jerk face freaky alien dude that is there to protect her.
“Never in my life had I been more frustrated. Go figure it wouldn't be with a human but a freaking alien. At least I now knew that the male species were asses no matter what planet they hailed from.” 
The beginning of this book throws you right into the action right away, which is what Jennifer is so good at. It grabs your attention and you need to continue reading to find out what happens next.

Another wonderful thing that Jennifer is good at is making her men swoon worthy. Hunter is this bad boy (literally) that has his own way of dealing with things. Usually with a cocky attitude. He knows what he likes, what he wants, but he doesn't acknowledge it. I loved how the whole time reading this book he was always so against this Arum - Human relationship. Even while hes doing the sweetest things for her he is still yelling at himself inside his head. It was quite entertaining. They had great chemistry and their relationship was so steamy!! Mhmm the whole fighting lust thing is what gets you!

Just like Daemon in obsidian, Hunter is a complete ass. Do we expect him to change? Yeah. Does he? Just a  little. This is one of the reasons why Jennifer is one of my favorite writers. They never loose themselves. Yeah Hunter is an asshole but he stays an asshole throughout the whole book. You can't expect him to change completely for a woman which he doesn't. Sure he becomes tolerable, just for her, which is the way it should be. No turning pussy for him =)
“I smiled then—a big, toothy idiotic smile— and Serena didn't see it. Her eyes were closed, which was good, because I was turning into one big vagina.”
Now Serena was a different story. I found she was so much more timid at the beginning of the story. Hunter seemed to bring out this spitefulness in her that I quite enjoyed. She liked to tell him how it is, yell back at him, and sometimes throw shit at him. It was great!

As always Jennifers writing is filled with a crap ton of humor. Laughing out loud at some parts gets me dirty looks but that's o.k. You know your enjoying a book when you don't care if you look crazy  jumping up and down because you finally got your hands on this book!

I highly recommend this book to anyone 17+ that has read The Lux series. This may be a stand alone book but I believe you get more from the story if you have previously read Obsidian. This book also refreshed my memory on all the rocks/stones that do different things to them. Oh and BTW ... there are characters that you get to see... Beautiful Face... Beautiful Body... Horrible Attitude.... The holy trinity of hot boy!! The most perfect part of the book!!! <3
