Taylor Kinney is how I pictured Hunter

Daemon, please don’t hate me, but I think I’m obsessed with an Arum. As a fan of the Lux series, it should feel so wrong. After all, aren’t Arum evil? Well, in Obsession we learn there are two sides to every story, and not all things are black and white.

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?

(blurb from:

What I loved the most about Obsession (besides a new hot alien to crush on) is it really expands on the Luxen-Arum-verse.  We didn’t know much about the Arum before, but there is so much we learn in this book, about the Arum, Luxen and DOD. This is definitely a good one for fans of the original series, but even if you haven’t read the Lux books you can still enjoy it as a standalone.

(As I’ve mentioned in a previous post: unlike the Lux series, which is YA, Obsession is meant for mature readers)

4 out of 5 stars
