Obsession by Jennifer L. Armmentrout
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?
My rate & take
Heat Index 3 ☼☼☼
This one was a pleasant surprise....it was written by the author of Obsidian, Onyx, and Opal, of the Lux series. The Lux series is Y.A. but this book was written with a more mature audience in mind as the heat factor is turned up! This book can be read without reading the series, but you would be missing some good writing and the ties-ins to the characters in Lux. See my reviews of the Lux series to date by clicking on the titles above. Another interesting twist this book added is that in the Lux series we are lead to believe one of the two alien races that are blending in on earth are without any good qualities other than being useful as killers, but in this offering we see there is much more depth than we were lead to believe.
