Onyx by Jennifer Armentrout

This is the second book in the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout. I don't even know where to begin with this review other than to say that this book was FREAKING AMAZING!!! From the very beginning it was very fast paced with twist and turns throughout the entire book. I loved the character Katy, although there were times I was thinking: "Girl, just get over it and take him." Daemon is obviously in love with her and wants to prove it, but it seemed that every time he tried she would think back to him being the jerk that he WAS but is not anymore. So yea... there were times I wanted to strangle her.

First of all it starts out right where Obsidian left off. Daemon is being irresistible, of course, and Katy tries to stay away from him believing that it is his alien "mojo" that the attraction is coming from. At the beginning of the book there isn't much action but it builds and builds until you are looking like a terrible, gushing wind just came out of nowhere and just  knocks you out and left you with your bottom lip literally touching the ground. Even though Katy made some mistakes she learned from them and it also made her and Daemon closer. New characters are introduce and we see a really sweet soft side from Daemon. Even though he and Katy still argue and occasionally want to strangle the living daylights out of each other - there is no denying the attraction that is there.

Blake comes in the picture and it's like a battle of the chest. I'm sure Katy was suffering from overbearing testosterone. Daemon does not like Blake at all and I'm sure if he could throw him over the Grand Canyon and say he slipped, he would. Daemon was so funny, always call Blake other names that started with a B knowing full well that he knew his real name. Sorry Blake but seriously there is no competition there.

"Kitten" he growled roughly.
I kissed him softly, sliding my hands into his silky locks, letting the pieces slide through my fingers. I tasted him in him my own rising desire, my own need and heartache. Thrilling. Frightening. I pulled back.
"Kitten," he said again, voice strained. "You don't get to do that and then stop.  That's not how it works."
I stared at him, my breath stalling in my lungs.
"Not when you're mine. Daemon backed us up and slid down the wall, pulling me onto his lap so i was straddling him. "And you're mine."

"Say it."
"Say what?" I asked.
"Tell me what you told me earlier".
My heart leaped in to my throat.  I'd told him a lot of things, but I knew what he wanted to hear. "I love you." 
His eyes darkened a second before he kissed me until i was ready to say screw the whole doing-it-right-by-me-thing.  "That's all i ever need to hear."
"Those three words?"
"Always those three words."

Ok......breath. Take a deep breath and count to ten. Go ahead and give your self time to float back to earth after reading that.

I fell in love with this book from the moment I started reading it and have pronounced myself a book boyfriend *eeekkk*. Daemon is just a dream.
