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.


When I was googling about love hate relationship books and found Obsidian, they weren't kidding. I lost count on how many their fight that involved I-want-you stare. Fiuh ~ those were so intense.

I know that universe is huge, I wouldn't argue about that. And I believe,  that some place around those stars, there must be another planet that has life. It's just ridiculous if you thought that the earth is the only planet in the universe that has life. If you see those stars, think about our sun, one of those stars got to be the sun for another creature, right. They are so many!

And I actually found it quite funny that the main character is a blogger. It was weird reading about another blogger. Because I usually read about someone that has a life opposite of mine, kind of wanting to lose in their world and forget my own. And whoever host Waiting on Wednesday should get compensation, his/her meme was mentioned quite a lot in this book. It seems like Jennifer L. A. Likes that meme more than review itself. Hmm.

Okay, back to the book. To be honest, I started this book quite a while ago, maybe a month before I post this review. But, I put it down after a few chapters or so and reading another book to pass the time. Why? It was boring. The first half of the book just so so, describing her hatred toward Daemon and how hot Daemon is. And on and on and on for 200 pages. Yeah, so that's why I just finished reading this book last Sunday.

But things got intense after the first attack begun. And Katy started to learn the true form of Daemon's kind. There aren't many to tell, that's just that and no big surprise there. Quite predictable really.

And to be another honest, I don't really like Katy, or Daemon, or even Dee. Katy was always having her focus wrong. She may think that she was the center of the world, had to know everything. And that's what irritated me. Daemon in the other hand was, is a douche bag. His effort to make Katy go just makes me want to kick his ass. Can't he tried another way?! . And Dee, what would you call her? Hmm, persistent. I don't think having human friend and let them in danger is more important that having no human friend at all. But she kinda desperate, so I guess it is. And the aliens, God! Can't they be more polite? It got my nerves every time they insult or say harsh words to Katy! Puhlease, it's our planet.

I don't want to say that this book is another twilight, that is so wrong. The guy didn't have the feeling to kill the girl, and the girl didn't, you know, Kat wasn't even having the same feeling like Bella. And Dee wasn't Alice. No! They're don't feel the same! And not to mention that Edward was a gentleman, compared to Daemon? For someone that thought Obsidian was another Twilight, tsk you need to open your eyes buddy.

“I didn't eat all of it."
"Oh, so it ate itself?" Dee shrieked so loudly I thought I heard the rafters in the ceiling shake. "Did the spoon ate it? Oh wait, I know. The carton ate it."
"Actually, I think the freezer ate it.”
“I don't think he meant to kiss me," I said finally.
"What? Did he slip and fall on your mouth? Those things are known to happen.” 
“Will you show me what you really look like? You don't sparkle, do you?”  
“How long have you been standing there?"
"Just long enough to see you give Daemon the middle finger."
“The day my internet was hooked up was better than having a hot guy check out my butt and ask for my phone number.”
