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…






BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:

“Not in this lifetime, buddy,” I said finally.
“Resistance is futile, Kitten.”
“So is your charm.”
“We’ll see.”
Rolling my eyes, I faced the front of the classroom. Daemon was a total babe, but he was stab-worthy, which at times, zeroed out the babe part. Not always though.


I just finished Shadows the novella and threw myself head first into Onyx. I needed me a full sized serve of Daemon and Katy.

I devoured it in a day and washed it down with some milk.

Jennifer really knows how to write YA humor and give us a guy that has the reader dreaming of cookies and pen poking, and dreaming of blowing up our laptop with the sizzle of an alien kiss.

Yes, Daemon is still pen poking in class. Gotta love a guy who pokes you with his pen.

Gotta love a guy who wants to share his cookie with you.

“Cookie?” he offered, holding a cookie full of chocolate chips.

Upset tummy or not, there was no way I could refuse that. “Sure.”


His lips tipped up one side and he leaned toward me, his mouth inches from mine. “Come and get it.”


Come and get ...? Daemon placed half the cookie between those full, totally kissable lips.


Oh, holy alien babies everywhere...


I second that!

I so love the Katy and Daemon tension and the banter between them and Jennifer gives it to us in bucket loads of memorable quotes.

“What’s wrong with you?”

“I don’t know. I probably got alien cooties.”




“Caving in?” I laughed without feeling. “I just want you out of my face.”

Daemon chuckled deeply. “Keep telling yourself that, Kitten.”

“Keep using your ego steroids.”



He smelled wonderful. Like spice and man. “I don’t want you.”

“Uh, now is not the time to get into that conversation.”


This was just a dream. I sighed, wrapping my arms around his taut waist. “But I do want you.”


Daemon’s arms tightened around me. “I know, Kitten. You aren’t fooling anyone. “




“I saw a lot.”

“Shut up,” I hissed.

“Don’t be embarrassed.” He reached out, tugging on the sleeve of my cardigan. I smacked his hand away. “It’s not like I haven’t seen the upper part before, and I didn’t get a real good look down--“



“Don’t hit, Kitten. It’s not nice.”

“You’re not nice.”


“Humping my leg like a dog in heat every time I’m around you doesn’t prove you like me, Daemon.”


Daemon clamped his mouth shut, and I could tell he was fighting back laughter.


“Actually, that’s how I show people I like them.”



But, what is this Jennifer, you have given Daemon some competition in the form of the newbie student , Blake.

Blake the surfer/blogger. Blake the guy that can talk to Katy about the things she does....like blogging, and not have the mickey taken out of her.


“This is Daemon Black.”

His smile faltered. “Yeah, I know who he is, too.”


Laughing under his breath, Daemon straightened. At his full height, he was a good head taller than Blake. “It’s always nice to meet another fan.”




“Yeah, see, you saying her name alone makes me want to kill you.”

I was laughing out loud at Daemon’s jealousy. Blake really is a thorn in his side. All the name calling was hilarious. Biff, Bilbo, Flake, Bart, Bo...hehe. A jealous Daemon is such fun to watch , but at the same time, rather dead sexy.


He smiled. “It’s all right, Katy. I’ll take you home.

“That won’t be necessary.” Daemon smiled tightly. “I got this, Biff.”

I wanted to face-palm myself. “Blake. His name is Blake, Daemon.”

I did love that scene with Daemon being Katy’s vlog assistant. LOL!


He’s very egotistical and likes to hear his voice, but he’s promised to stay quiet. Right?”

He nodded and smiled angelically for the camera, but his eyes stirred with amusement. Yep, this was a bad idea. “I think reading is sexy.” Daemon smiled to himself.


My brows inched up my forehead. “Do you now?”


“Oh, yes, and you know what else I think is sexy?”He leaned forward so his entire face filled the picture and nodded his head toward me. “Bloggers like this. Hot.”



Dee is just a beautiful character. She is having some playtime in the background. 

Daemon is having to swallow all that cranky pants attitude from Obsidian and Shadows, cause the lad is smitten. The quotes that pour from his lips are just dead smexi.


“Because I know.” Daemon appeared in front of me, eyes narrowed. He thumped his hand off his chest, directly over his above his heart. “Because I know what I feel in here. And I’m not the type of person to run from anything, no matter how hard it is.”



“I’m going to get changed,” I said.

“Need help?”

“Wow. You’re so chivalrous, Daemon.”

His smile widened, flashing deep dimples. “Well, the experience would be mutually beneficial. I promise.”


“Kitten,” he said again, voice strained. “You don’t get to do that and then stop. That’s not how it works.”

I stared at him, my breath stalling in my lungs.

“Not when you’re mine.” Daemon backed us up and slid down the wall, pulling me onto his lap so I was straddling him. “And you’re mine.”


“Oh, I still want to strangle you. But I’m insane. You’re crazy. Maybe that’s why. We just make crazy together.”



“Kitten, your mind is a terrible and dirty place.”

A whole new direction opens up in this installment where Jennifer can take the reader. The DOD are getting some real air time and a whole pile of trust issues are popping up. 

Danger and death are lurking around each corner for Katy and she is showing us that she can go from a blogger to a kick ass ninja when given the opportunity. I think every blogger would love to be in Katy's shoes, especially with delicious Daemon and his cookies.

I gotta say Jennifer turned up the danger and betrayal in this one.

OMG!
