Obsession by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Release Date: Out now!

Publisher: Entangled Publishing

Pages: 370pgs

The Story

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?

The Review

OBSESSION is an adult spin-off book that is set in the same world as Jennifer L. Armentrout's young adult Lux series, which I'm quite a fan of as I'm sure many of you readers are also. So when I first heard of this spin-off book, I just couldn't pass this baby up (which is rightly so because the author is awesome) and I'm so glad that I didn't because it was a very enjoyable read and it was really nice getting to see more adult characters in this excellent paranormal world of Armentrout's, especially since it's far more mature.

I won't recap on anything (it's more surprisingly and enjoyable when you read the book for yourself), but I will say readers will not be disappointed. Sure, the romance that develops between Hunter and Serena may come across as a little bit 'too fast' or so on, but hey, I totally get why they would be attracted to each other and on a whole I thought they had a great relationship aside from a lot of crazy things that happens to them. Hunter, especially, was a favourite character of mine and even though he goes all alpha-male at times (which can be a little too much), but it was a real treat getting to know him and of his kind, that being the Arum, which as you know they are not exactly nice guys in the Lux series and yet there is a totally different side to them in this book. So if you're a fan of the YA Lux series, then you'll definitely want to read this book as soon as possible.

Overall, OBSESSION is such a great spin-off and I hope sometime in the future the author decides to write more from these characters or at least mention at some point in her other books because I'm going to miss them quite a lot.

The Rating
4/5 stars
