I knew the moment Katy Swartz moved in next door there was going to be trouble. Lots of it. And trouble's the last thing I need, since I'm not exactly from around here. My people arrived on Earth from Lux, a planet 13 billion light-years away. Plus, if there's one thing I know, it's that humans can't be trusted. We scare them. We can do things they only dream about, and honestly, we make them look weak as hell. Cuz they are. But Kat is getting to me in ways no one else has, and I can't stop myself from wanting her - or wanting to use my powers to protect her. She makes me weak, and I'm the strongest of our kind, tasked with protecting us all. So this one girl might mean the end for us. Because the Luxen have an even bigger enemy - the Arum - and I need to stay on my game. Falling for Katy - a human - won't just place her in danger. It could get us all killed, and that's one thing I'll never let happen.

If you buy the book from Amazon, you get Daemon's point of view on the first three books in print. I thought this would be all three books, but it is not. I actually liked Damons point of view better than Katy's. I also didn't like the narrator for Katy.
I love this story and I love Daemon. Rob Shapiro's performance is great. His voice is smooth and sounds just as I imagine Daemon to sound. My only complaint is that since the first book, Daemon has been pronounced wrong, but that is not this narrator's fault, he has to continue to be consistent.
Daemon, of course.
I am a fun loving mom that enjoys a great Book!! I'm happy to have Audible with a busy life it makes it so easy to still get lost in a book!
Jennifer L Armentrout is SUCH AN AWESOME AUTHOR! I HAVE READ EVERY BOOK SHE'S PUT OUT & ITS TO THE POINT NOW I KNOW THEY ARE GOING TO BE EPIC SO I IMMEDIATELY PREORDER & SHE NEVER EVER DISAPPOINTS!!
I totally fell in love with this guy hates girl then loves her book. I was experiencing butterflies in my stomach practically the whole time I was reading the book.
I have listened to 2 other books by Jennifer Armentrout which I enjoyed (Wicked and Torn). I can't say the same for this book. It was painfully predictable and the narrator incongruent. Not that his narration was bad he just didn't sound like he was 17y/o.
The story jumped from teenage angst to soap opera predictability with the addition of some really sexist ideology as well. I kept listening hoping that something might happen and that the heroine might develop some character but alas it didn't happen.
Even the image on the cover of the book was incongruent:
1) he was meant to be 17 - not a chance
2) he was meant to be drop dead gorgeous - not a chance
This is for Daemon Black's fans, doesn't add anything new to the story but the audiobook it's really enjoyable, wish this included Onyx and Opal's narration too.
