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…

Even hotter than the first book. It's so nice to read a young adult book that will actually have sexual tension. I feel like a lot of young adul books dance around the topic and pretend like it doesn't happen.

A love triangle happens in this book, but it didn't really annoy me. Of course I wasn't happy that Katy was spending a lot of time with Blake. But she can do whatever she wants. I did like Daemon's overprotectiveness and how it became obvious that he really cared about Katy. Daemon's protective side is pretty attractive!

Still just as awesome as she was before. She wasn't totally on board with Daemon's connection thing after they couldn't get along before. She liked seeing Daemon squirm, as did I. It makes him sexy when he's uncomfortable.

So sexy when he's nervous. It was nice seeing him not be so cool and get uncomfortable and overprotective. I'm in love.

Still an amazing best friend character. I really liked how we got to see her relationship with her boyfriend, too. She is still one of my favorite best friend characters.

He's still pretty cute, but I still prefer Daemon. I just don't trust him.

Overall, I still love this series and I can't wait to read the rest of the series! I know that this review is shorter, but... whatever!
