You resent her. You can’t stand her. You might even hate her.

But you don’t know her at all.

Hope knows there’s only one thing coming between her and her longtime crush: his girlfriend, Parker. She has to sit on the sidelines and watch as the perfect girl gets the perfect boy . . . because that’s how the universe works, even though it’s so completely wrong. Continue reading


It has been awhile since my last post…

It’s actually been almost a year, and boy what a crazy year it has been! Before I resume posting my reviews again I wanted to apologize for my sudden disappearance. Life got way too busy for a while and I couldn’t keep up with reading and reviewing, but here I am again and I am so ready to get back to it! I’m going to try to post reviews on Saturdays and participate in Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by The Broke and the Bookish) and Waiting on Wednesday (hosted by Breaking the Spine). I’ll see you soon!

Experience the epic love story of OBSIDIAN as told by its hero, Daemon Black…

I knew the moment Katy Swartz moved in next door, there was going to be trouble. Lots of it.

And trouble’s the last thing I need, since I’m not exactly from around here. My people arrived on Earth from Lux, a planet thirteen billion light years away. Plus, if there’s one thing I know, it’s that humans can’t be trusted. We scare them. We can do things they only dream about, and honestly, we make them look weak as hell. ‘Cuz they are.

But Kat is getting to me in ways no one else has, and I can’t stop myself from wanting her—or wanting to use my powers to protect her. She makes me weak, and I’m the strongest of our kind, tasked with protecting us all. So this one simple girl…she can mean the end for us. Because the Luxen have an even bigger enemy—the Arum, and I need to stay on my game.

Falling for Katy—a human—won’t just place her in danger. It could get us all killed, and that’s one thing I’ll never let happen…

The Lux series is by far one of my favorite. Hot men, witty banter, and tons of action. Getting to read Obsidian from Daemon’s POV was amazing, so much sexiness. So much badassery. So much swoon! If you loved the Lux series, read this. If you love hot aliens, read this. If you’re in need of a great laugh, read this. Just read it. I need more, and I probably always will.
