This week's Tease comes from


Jennifer L. Armentrout
First - The Blurb:
This is a stand alone novel that is an adult spin-off
of the
Lux Series

He’s arrogant, domineering, and... To. Die. For.

Hunter is a ruthless killer. And the Department of Defense has him firmly in their grasp, which usually doesn’t chafe too badly because he gets to kill bad guys. Most of the time he enjoys his job. That is, until he’s saddled with something he’s never had to do before: protect a human from his mortal enemy.

Serena Cross didn’t believe her best friend when she claimed to have seen the son of a powerful senator turn into something... unnatural. Who would? But then she witnesses her friend’s murder at the hands of what can only be an alien, thrusting her into a world that will kill to protect their secret.

Hunter stirs Serena’s temper and her lust despite their differences. Soon he’s doing the unthinkable—breaking the rules he’s lived by, going against the government to keep Serena safe. But are the aliens and the government the biggest threats to Serena’s life… or is it Hunter?
Second - The Tease:
Are you done acting like a psychotic  cracked-out Muppet baby? he asked, and I could tell by the way his fingers spasmed around my wrists, he really wanted to shake me. "Or do you need a couple more moments to return to sanity? I have all day. And you actually feel kind of good under me, so take your time."

Yeah! I've never been good at leaving my teasers short. Here's a little more:

My eyes popped wide. I was under him, like really under him. Our bodies were touching in all the right areas one wanted them to touch when they were in bed. I shifted just a fraction of an inch, and his eyes narrowed. Something long and thick and hard pressed against my belly. A flush stole across my cheeks and swept down my neck. Alien or not, he was endowed like the small percentage of men who actually had something to brag about.
Third - My Thoughts:
Holey Moley! This book is HOT!!!! STEAMY!!!! And Definitely Adults Only!!!!
Being a fan of the Lux series, I was really looking forward to reading Obsession. I was not disappointed. Jennifer writes a great story. Her words just flow making it easy to picture characters and follow scenes.
After reading Obsession, have I switched sides? No!
Although Hunter is Sexy Hot, I'm still team Deamon. He's a little less rough around the edges and has a more refined use of the English language.
Would I recommend this to Lux fans? Yes! But only if you are aged 18+

My rating: 4.5 out of 5 (I enjoyed it but not quite as much as the original series with Katy and Daemon)
