Being connected to Daemon Black sucksโ€ฆ

Thanks to his alien mojo, Daemonโ€™s determined to prove what he feels for me is more than a product of our bizarro connection. So Iโ€™ve sworn him off, even though heโ€™s running more hot than cold these days. But weโ€™ve got bigger problems.

Something worse than the Arum has come to townโ€ฆ

The Department of Defense are here. If they ever find out what Daemon can do and that we’re linked, Iโ€™m a goner. So is he. And there’s this new boy in school whoโ€™s got a secret of his own. He knows whatโ€™s happened to me and he can help, but to do so, I have to lie to Daemon and stay away from him. Like that’s possible. Against all common sense, I’m falling for Daemon. Hard.

But then everything changesโ€ฆ

Iโ€™ve seen someone who shouldnโ€™t be alive. And I have to tell Daemon, even though I know heโ€™s never going to stop searching until he gets the truth. What happened to his brother? Who betrayed him? And what does the DOD want from themโ€”from me?

No one is who they seem. And not everyone will survive the liesโ€ฆ

My Review:
Another fast-paced addictive read from JLA. I hadn’t totally connected with the characters in Obsidian, but got totally hooked in Onyx. Daemon is easier to like in this book, and you start to get a glimpse of his real personality. I completely distrusted Blake from the start, and was screaming at Katy to back away. I was disappointed in her, that she choose to believe him over Daemon, and though I understood her logic at the start, I felt it dragged on far too long. Katy felt the pull between them was only down to the connection, and that was reminiscent of Alex’s view that her attraction to Seth was all down to the Apollyon connection. (Covenent Series)
The suspense is really cranked up in Onyx, particularly in the second part of the book and I had a hard time putting it down.
JLA writes romantic suspense so well, and I was literally tearing my hair out at times, but in a good way.
A brilliant read, worth checking out.

P.S Does anyone else think that the guy on the front cover so does not do Daemon Black justice? DB in my head is way, way hotter. Don’t get me wrong, the model is fit, but doesn’t quite match up to the description of DB, in my opinion.
