My Review: Obsession by J L Armentrout

From Goodreads:

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  thoughts:

    Luxens  are  now the bad guys... errr, I mean,really bad aliens?!  This is a 360 degrees shift on what I believe! I read the Luxen Series, and Daemon Black is nothing like Senator Vanderson, a Luxen who is apparently a  power hungry Alien?!  I shook my head in disbelief. But then, this is something new... and something new is always good! I'm dying of curiosity here ... and well, just look at the cover?! If Arums are hot like Hunter... I'll definitely check him out! lol. ( and my fangirl radar is telling me , I found the right alien! ) And he is like my fave devil triple chocolate brownie... Indulgent. Illegal. Mouth-watering! ( Now , why I'm even talking about food?! )

    When Serena witnessed  her friend being killed / burned / zapped to death by something inhuman, her life turned upside down. Now she knows we are not alone in this earth! That knowledge can get her killed!  And she knows something  that could compromise Luxens' existence ,moreover that the Luxen in question holds a high position in the government.  So, when Serena was attacked and almost got killed by a Luxen.... A sexy, smoldering, hot Arum came into the picture and rescued her! Holy smokes, hot chilies , hot tamales Hunter! I feel already  intoxicated and dizzy just looking at him! I can't even imagine what has been playing on Serena's mind when she saw these two aliens fighting over her?! Fascinated...?! Uhhh.. Nope! More like scared to death?!

    So she ended up under the Department of Defense or the DOD's witness protection program. And who could better protect her from the powerful Luxens but an equally well equipped Arum? Ending up with her "baby sitter" Hunter was never easy for both of them. Hunter is a natural predator... and Serena is one distracting, inviting prey on his plate!  Remember, Arum feeds on both Luxen and humans!  I love love it when he tried feeding on Serena!  It's way sexy! Way sexier than a vampire sucking your blood! ( oh, how could that sound so wrong! Haha! ) And.. Hunter wants to uhmmm.. play with his food?! ...and he's way..way good! ( with his hands ...his mouth?! uh oh?! I forgot to tell you, this ones not for the kids! Cover your eyes!! Hunter = Hot.. hot.. hot!!! Having Hunter around , Serena's gonna end up either on his plate or his bed?! Uh-oh. I won't complain either way! Haha.

    I also love their verbal exchanges. So much snarks with JL Armentrout's  touch! It was really good! And I love Serena when she goes feisty and Hunter's uhmmm.. commanding presence! See the combination? When together, they simmer! When  they touch... they burn! Sizzle.. sizzle!!

     When the action starts... Boy! It was like an action packed movie scene! I can almost imagine myself watching them fight! The blows, the kicks... everything is just WOW!!!  I'm clapping my hands for JLA!!!  Never a dull moment! I kept on guessing what will happen next!  One thing's sure , never mess with an Arum ... never ever touch what was his! Specially Serena... because Hunter will kill and take them down one by one!

     I love the ending. It's not a cliffhanger but gave a me something to look forward to! I discovered something big! Clue: A conspiracy that will threaten  human existence. JL Armentrout did it again! Now, all I have to do is wait for the next great book to come!

Song that's been playing on my head while reading this : 

"Toxic" by Britney Spears

                I'm giving this:

      4 Delicious , action packed stars!
