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…

Jennifer Armentrout did not disappoint with this book. It was everything I was hoping for and much more. As always the sarcasm that I love between the main characters was there. Definitely some twists and turns I wasn't expecting. I even teared up in several places. I have loved these books and all the characters. I absolutely love reading a book that comes alive in your mind and one that you find you become the characters as you go on the journey with them while reading. It has been a joy to read! 

A couple of my favorite quotes from the book, which are not spoilerish:

"Even when they'd argued, love fueled their words."

"Words were the most powerful tool. Simple and so often underestimated. They could heal. They could destroy."

How long till Opal??? Only a little more than 2 months and I can not wait to jump into the next part of this story!

Wonderfully addictive book series! Another 5 stars!!!  Check it out! (Originally added on Goodreads September 2012)
