Goodreads synopsis:

"Starting over sucks.

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."

Hey guys!

     This story is the first in a series of 5 (plus a novella). It follows a girl named Katy who moves to West Virginia with her mom after her father dies of cancer. She meets her neighbors, Dee and Daemon, and she and Dee become fast friends...except Daemon is a total jerk...An eventually she finds out that he and Dee are...aliens. Enough of the spoilers, on with my loving rant.

     To be honest, I didn't think I would like this book at all. I'm not a big fan of alien books at all, but I loved this book! I highly recommend it, even if you're not a fan of this book, you will love it! The characters are so deep and relatable (not the alien parts tho but how they feel about people and their family). Not to mention, Katy is a book blogger! :D 

     Jennifer L. Armentrout is seriously an amazing writer. She knows how to write about characters you can fall in love with...even the asshat Daemon.

     I hope y'all read this book. It is so much fun to read and it's just a really great book overall. :D

Happy Reading!
