Goodreads Summary:

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.

My Review:
 “I hate you and your freaky alien powers.”


There were so many things that irritated me throughout this whole book, yet I never stopped reading it because I wanted to find out why everyone else seems to love this book/series so much.

This book was entertaining, but I disliked all of the characters so much that the entertainment value didn't make-up for the dislike of the characters.

I liked Katy at first, but as she got closer to Daemon I started to dislike her. He was always able to get under her skin everyday and to make her so angry at him that she ended up just letting him get away with everything.

Now with Daemon I did understand why he was so protective of his sister, and why he didn't like Katy being around her. It wasn't enough to make-up for him being such a jerk and treating everyone like crap.


Dee was probably my favorite one of them she was kind, and treated others like they should be treated. She didn't want there to be people she couldn't befriends with and she just wanted to have a normal human life. I did dislike that she always made excuses for Daemons behavior though and that she always covered for him.

Overall while this wasn't a horrible storyline itself. The characters ended up ruining it and making it not very enjoyable.
