Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
GoodReads Synopsis: 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…
My Thoughts: I have to say that I like “nice” Daemon a whole lot more than “douche bag” Daemon! And yes, we do get a glimpse or two of “nice” Daemon.
Lots of revelations here! A few are surprising, most you could see coming if you wanted to. The chemistry between Kat and Daemon hits stratospheric levels…but with those highs come some real tear jerking lows too.
What I love about Kat is the fact that she seems like a reasonable, normal, high school kid. I love Daemon’s snark, arrogance, and his great big squishy heart that only gets revealed in tiny bits. Armentrout creates great characters and I have no doubt I will be following them to the “ends of the Earth”
Ultimately, the story remained just as “un-put-down-able” as all the other Jennifer L. Armentrout books I’ve read, thank goodness…the only problem with that is that it always seems like an interminable wait for the next installment.
