When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring… until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up. And then he opened his mouth. Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something… unexpected happens. The hot alien living next door marks me. You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades. If I don’t kill him first, that is.
I’ve been meaning to reread this series for too long and after finding out Janita’s mutual wish, we decided to do a buddy read! This was our first buddy read, so we had some difficulties. I really enjoyed this new experience; it’s always nice to have someone else to discuss about a book with!
Rereading this book now, after a year and half from the first time, some things changed. For one, I’m a book blogger now and I can relate to Katy in a different level. I can remember myself thinking, while reading the book then, how it would be if I had my own blog! Also having read many books since then, I changed my star review from the first time; I gave the book 4 stars than 5 that I gave the first time.
While reading the book, I realized that I totally forgot how sexy Daemon is 😛 He was one of my first ever book boyfriends and he’s still one of my favorites even though he’s a total douche at this book! I really missed Dee’s sassiness and high-spirit attitude. She just makes the book even better!
Daemon and Katy’s constant banter is seriously hilarious, especially at the first half of the book. Reading the book, I actually felt their connection building and their defenses against each other crumble. It was funny to see how they both tried so hard to deny their attraction, when everyone else can see it!
I can’t wait to move forward to the series! Being able to share my thoughts with someone else makes this reading session even better 😀
