OBSIDIAN by Jennifer L. Armentrout

From Goodreads: 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.

This book is the first in a series.

Rachel's Thoughts: This was an addictive, fun read. Yes the hero was a jerk. In fact, I almost stopped reading because I couldn't stand him. But I'm glad I kept on. Yes, there's insta-love. And yeah, it's about an average girl who falls for an above average guy. But it moved quickly and I really liked the concept of his print "lighting her up." This story wasn't the most in depth, thought provoking read I've had, but it was fun and entertaining. I gave this book FOUR bookmarks.

Lakela's Thoughts: I started reading this, but couldn't stand Daemon, so I stopped.
