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.
Well, hello perfection! No seriously, I cannot find a bad thing to say about this book (or any books Jen writes for that matter). But let’s start at the beginning.
Katy just moved to a new town and her mom keeps pushing her to make friends. So she walks next door, where according to her mom’s still working eyes, a boy hotness will be able to direct her to the nearest store. The door opens and this is where the fun begins. Katy is pulled into a world of obnoxious boy, sweet but hyperactive girl, and a town full of secrets.
Katy’s characters is fabulous. She’s a girl who works at making herself more than she is. She doesn’t take crap from people, even if those people are a gorgeous next door neighbor Daemon. Awe, Daemon, how do I not drool as I write this review? I’m pretty sure just the name sends goosebumps up my arm. He’s definitely a league all of his own. Oh my Holy Franking Superman! Daemon is just so, wait, is this review supposed to be G-rated? But really, I think I tell Jen daily she has ruined any chances for me with “real” boys!
Obsidian is hot, sexy, funny, and breathtaking beginning to a series. The action is fast paced, the storyline is fabulous, and the relationships are adorable. Every page will leave you wanting more, in every way imaginable. *Snickers* The characters are fresh and exciting. I’ve only mentioned two but every character in this story is a work of art. Jen takes a story that is familiar and moves it to a whole another galaxy. I’m already having anxiety separation!
Obsidian comes out December 6th. I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone!

My most favorite aspect of Obsidian has to be the incredibly hot hottie neighbor Mr. Sexy Pants Daemon, because behind every great heroine there is always a super hot guy to obsess over. Am I right? He's this great looking, dark featured, snarky guy that has a I don't care what I do or say kind of attitude. One of hi better qualities is that he's very protective of those he cares for…plus, you know…he's an alien. It's no surprise that he and Katy don't really hit it off right away, since they have the same witty and snarky outlook on life, there is another problem though; it's forbidden for them to be together, as in the species. Total bummer, because Daemon is the best basically.
All this makes it wonderful the entire time, but I'm not telling, you'll just have to find out for yourself! It is quite the thrill-ride though, and totally worth looking into. Another great aspect of Obsidian is Daemon's twin sister Dee, and while he might be rude and broody at times, she is his complete opposite with her bubbly optimistic attitude. She takes an instant liking to Katy and wants to be best friends, even though Katy seems a little hesitant at first. The girls hit it off though, as if they should have been besties long before then and just never had the chance to meet. Just like with Daemon though, Katy isn't really allowed to be friends with Dee either, this leads to some unfortunate great situations. Meeting the twins changes Katy's life and it leaves her wondering if it's for the better or worse.
