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?

- Goodreads.com description

Once again, Jennifer L. Armentrout managed to completely blow me away. This book is made of awesome. It's hilarious, romantic, completely hot, fast paced, and full of twists. Loved it!

Serena is a normal girl who had this bad luck of being in the wrong place at wrong time. Her best friend got killed and her world is completely been changed. She has to hide, escape, and trust her life in Hunter's hands. Uh huh, needless to say, it's a hard thing for her. Trusting her life in a man's hands is quite difficult, especially to a snarky, arrogant one.

Hunter. I must say this, reading from this guy's POV was hilarous! His come backs were incredible and made crack up all the time laughing like crazy. His attitude "I don't give a shit about the world" was phenomenal. 

In this instalment we do understand though, that the Luxen aren't that innocent. The Arum are still bad, though not all of them. This book give us perspective about the whole Luxen/Arum/Human complexion. And we do get to see Daemon <3

So, if you haven't read or heard about the Lux serie.. then I guess you've been living under a rock and I highly suggest you to crawl out from beneath it. The Lux serie is amazing, and Obsession will drive you mad with desire for more.
