My Swoon for this week comes from:

(Lux #5)

Jennifer L. Armentrout 

First - The Blurb:

Katy knows the world changed the night the Luxen came.

She can't believe Daemon welcomed his race or stood by as his kind threatened to obliterate every last human and hybrid on Earth. But the lines between good and bad have blurred, and love has become an emotion that could destroy her—could destroy them all.

Daemon will do anything to save those he loves, even if it means betrayal.

They must team with an unlikely enemy if there is any chance of surviving the invasion. But when it quickly becomes impossible to tell friend from foe, and the world is crumbling around them, they may lose everything— even what they cherish most—to ensure the survival of their friends…and mankind.

War has come to Earth. And no matter the outcome, the future will never be the same for those left standing.

Second - The Swoon(s):

Swoon 1
"Kat.” He uttered my name like it was some kind of prayer, and then he pressed a kiss against the skin behind my ear. “I broke every rule of my kind to heal you and keep you with me. I married you and burned down an entire city to keep you safe. I’ve killed for you. Did you think I’d forget what you mean to me? That anything in this world—in any world—would be stronger than my love for you?” 

Swoon 2
Daemon lunged forward, and a second later, my back was flush against the wall and his mouth was on mine. The kiss... holy alien babies, the kiss was a raw combination of lust and possession. There was a taste of desperation and anger as our teeth clanged, but the hand against my cheek was so gentle, barely there, and all those emotions were in the kiss, but the love was far stronger than anything else.

Holy Alien Babies is right. What an amazing conclusion to a brilliant series. Loaded with action, romance, and Daemon's typical arrogant and witty comments, Opposition does not disappoint and keeps you enthralled from beginning to end. 
If you're into this series then you definitely need to read the final book.

My rating: 5 out of 5
