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…
Second buddy read with a review from Demi! You can find my review of this book here and Demi’s you can read below.
We finished Obsidian with Daemon wanting a relationship with Katy and her refusing. In “Onyx”, Daemon is determined to convince her that a relationship with him is exactly what she needs! I laughed with his sexual innuendos; they were hilarious, even Katy couldn’t resist and laughed at times 😛 A new player is being introduced, Blake. His role in the story is big. Since this is a reread, I knew pretty much his future actions, so I couldn’t like him this time around! Daemon’s reactions and jealousy because of Blake were really cute. Dee is voicing all of my thoughts about Daemon and Katy’s relationship! Through the book are so many things going on and secrets are constantly unveiling and at the end we are left with a big surprise! While rereading the book I realized that I didn’t remember it very good, so this reread is exactly what I needed!!
