I'm not sure why, but I just haven't been blogging lately *cough* Since February *cough* I guess like always it was life and such. I'm a jack of all trades, so I'll have periods of doing one thing and then it'll be like I crash and I move on... but come back later. This is exactly what I'm doing here. So bare with my unexpected disappearances. I truly don't mean to, but I post when I can. There are other things in life that are more important than blogging.

On to the review...

I have always heard nothing but great things about this book/series. When it was first circling around it was only in ebook format and my refusal to buy an ereader and paperless books turned me away from this story. And then one day my husband took me to the bookstore and I found THIS pretty sitting on the shelves. I almost, almost, jumped up in glee. I could FINALLY read this. Finally.

I am so happy I bought the rest of the series that day, too. Here's why...

Jennifer L. Armentrout has a gift. So can right a damn good novel that keeps you fully engaged within the story and characters. Particularly on the characters. She writes a damn good bad boy, that's for sure. I never understood why EVERYONE was all over Daemon. Like c'mon? The guys a total jerk. But then I read this book and I was like, DAMN he's a total jerk *licks lips* There is just something about Daemon that's so seductive and mysterious that you really can't help fall head over heals. I'd gladly take Kat's place any day (expect in the third book... gosh, that ending!)

So not only are the character utterly incredible, but the story line about the whole alien thing is really intriguing. And I mean, a bad-boy hottie who is also an alien? Tell me that doesn't sound awesome? There are so many twists and turns and you'll find yourself flipping page after page. I know I did!

And the humor. Gosh, don't even get me started. The relationship between Kat and Daemon is so darn funny those to truly make the story. Without then it'd be a boring alien story.

If you're the few that haven't read this yet, what are you waiting for!? Go pick this up. It'll grab you and won't let go until the third book (where it'll tear your heart out).
