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?
That was one amazing book! In this new novel as a whole new brand of hotness because I am seriously obsessed with this book!! While reading I have a new appreciation for the Arum because they have a total different view than what the Lux. Now I am torn between Hunter and Daemon, both are bad boys that are arrogant and hot! Jennifer did an amazing job with this story between Serena and Hunter. Told between Hunter and Serena's point of view we get to see the undercover operations of the Lux/Arum. If you have read the book you know what I mean!
Obsession was one crazy ride full of passion, action, and a lot of lust! I did not put this book down! Like any of Jen's books she know how to grab our attention to the lead male, Hunter. He is one with an attitude, a hired killer, and does what he wants. Don't get him mad because he is one pissed off Arum (also powerful). With the drive that was his sisters death, Hunter will do anything he can to protect the ones he loves. While he is a great fighter he is also a great lover. There was so many sexy scenes that you will fall in love with Hunter!
Serena is snarky and does not take any crap from anyone. When she meets Hunter the sparks fly and it makes her hot and bothered. She does not listen to Hunter and is very stubborn. I really liked her character because she does remind me of Katy is some ways. She is a very loyal friend who will do anything. Since I am a big fan of the Lux series I couldn't wait to read this book because any book Jennifer writes I will read it.
The familiarity of the Lux world is what ties everything into this story because as you read Obsession you get a different side of the Arum POV as well as what is possibly going to happen in book 5 (Origin) The Arum have always been known as the bad guys but reading this, I may have changed my mind. I have a love for both of them now. This was one super amazing book that was sexy and JLA knows how to write! If you love a steamy romance, with laughs, and adventures this book is one you need to pick up! I am excited for any JLA adult romance!
