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.

Thoughts:  The main character – Katy – is written beautifully. She’s strong willed, fun, doesn’t take crap, loyal friend, and intelligent. Her love interest – Daemon – is the complete opposite. He’s arrogant, rude, bossy, and argumentative. You would think these aspects in a guy are awful (which they are) but it actually makes the story interesting. He will do anything for his family, which is an “awww” moment. Daemon is also extremely hot (so many muscles it will make any girl swoon) and can be charming, which means you can almost forget how bad his attitude is. During the book he warms up to Katy, and you end up loving him.

The plot is semi-slow. You read the same thing over again, such as “He’s so rude and bossy but he’s so hot!” which gets old when it’s written in every chapter. When it comes to the storyline, it rocks. Cute bad-boy alien with charming qualities? Sign me up! I’m personally into the whole “I’m a bad boy but actually good and charming when you get to know me” or “I drive everyone away but not you because you’re different”. Those two statements are in the book, but it’s not the main character development.

You can see both Katy and Daemon grow, which is an aspect that I admire. Again, my personal taste is character development in a book instead of someone doing the same thing without learning consequences or thinking the same thing through out the whole storyline. I don’t want to read the same character traits chapter after chapter! Katy learns from her mistakes and is a better person because of them. She's very relatable and you're definitely going to be team Katy all the way! This book is an entertaining read. I recommend it if you’re into hot and steamy romance. It loses 1/2 point for the repetitive paragraphs.
