The last thing Dawson Black expected was Bethany Williams. As a Luxen, an alien life form on Earth, human girls are...well, fun. But since the Luxen have to keep their true identities a secret, falling for one would be insane. Dangerous. Tempting. Undeniable.
Bethany can't deny the immediate connection between her and Dawson. And even though boys aren't a complication she wants, she can't stay away from him. Still, whenever they lock eyes, she's drawn in. Captivated. Lured. Loved.
Dawson is keeping a secret that will change her existence...and put her life in jeopardy. But even he can't stop risking everything for one human girl. Or from a fate that is as unavoidable as love itself.

The nasal voice of this narrator was so annoying that I cancelled the book less than 14 minutes into it. This woman opens her nose to speak!
A different narrator. She sounded like she was pinching her nose while trying to use the restroom. It was distracting.
A completely different narrator
I'm very easy to please when it comes to narration, but I couldn't take the sound of her voice for more than 25 minutes. She constantly mispronounced the names and some common words. It was almost painful. I've purchased the kindle version and will be requesting a refund on the audio version. Such a disappointment.
I really enjoyed this book, however, it was a huge SPOILER for the first book in the series. It took away the entire element of suspense and excitement for the main character as she unravels the mystery of Daemon Black.
Rebecca Gibel or maybe Tavia Gilbert. Justine Eyre is great but her narration for this particular series doesn't seem to fit quite right.
I read this after the first book in the series because some other reviewers recommended that, but I think it would have been better to read this first. (I've read the whole series now.)
This book talks mainly about the relationship between Dawson and Bethany. Dawson is the brother of the main character of the rest of the series. I didn't like getting engaged in the story of Daemon and Katie in the first book, then going back to a previous point in time to hear this story about his brother. I still enjoyed the book and it provided helpful context, but I would have rather read this one first to go chronologically. I think it would have made some of Daemon's actions in the first book make more sense to me too. It's also recommended by the author to read this one first.
Hope that helps someone when deciding the reading order!
Say something about yourself!
Yes, I would recommend audiobook. Narrator nailed it.
The Black siblings would always be there for each other regardless of any predicament they may encounter.
Kiss scene between Dawson and Bethany in which he unintentionally begins glowing like a star.
Yes, I listened to it in one sitting. Enjoyed narrator Justine Eyre.
I read and listened to Shadows after I had read the whole series.
