Peek Inside Obsession

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?


"A drum-tight sense of suspense and sexual tension." --Publishers Weekly

"The chemistry sizzles off the page!" -- Katee Robert, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author 

"A laugh out-loud, sizzling romance with sassy, stubborn leads. Prepare to read in a sitting!" -- Natalie Anderson, USA TODAY bestselling author 

"This series is a MUST for fans of the Lux Series." --Jennifer Kyle, Goodreads

"Loved it! Another alien masterpiece by Jennifer Armentrout!!!! Now before you start this book, it would be very helpful if you read her Luxen series first. This book is a take-off on that series, showing us readers the other side of the coin, from the eyes of the enemy. And what a delicious glimpse it is into the mind and the life of the Arum." --Karen, Goodreads

"Jennifer has again completely blown away my mind and expectations with another story. So everyone seriously buy Obsession and devour it. Although I can guarantee that once you start you won't be able to stop until you've read the last juicy, incredible page." --Crazed Bookie, Goodreads

It’s official! I hate all the book heroines!!
Because all of them have the luck either to live next to the hottest male ever or meet one of them.

Let’s say I’m at Barnes and Noble. There’s only one copy of this book left.

And a lady, who looks old enough to have known Moses personally, is holding it and is wheelchairing it over the check-out line in a way that would make NASCAR proud.

So, is it a shadow? Total darkness? Or a black hole?

Or is it an Arum.

Well, it’s....

This book was amazing!!!
I don't know anymore who are the bad guys Luxen or Arum..

In my mind from the Lux series I thought Arum are the bad guys in the story!I never thought I'll like them and fall in love with one of them!

I loved the first part of the book when Serena meets Hunter and we learn many things about Arum together with her. It was interesting to realise that you need always to look at situations from a different prospective and judge only after you see w ...more

Good vs. Evil

Light vs. Darkness

Luxen vs. Arum

Well, I thought I had it all figured out…Boy was I wrong!

Jennifer L. Armentrout is a genius! She took what fans of the Lux Series know to be the truth from the view point of Daemon Black and his siblings and blew it to smithereens!

Ok, this book officially proved that the Arum can be just as gorgeous, awesome, and selfless as the Luxen. I'm still in a state of shock after this book, wow.
Even though I thought this book was really short, it still went into details about the Luxen and Arum that I didn't even read about in the Lu ...more

i have only one word to say and that is


I would also like to say that if you are reading LUX series I would advise you not to read it if you haven't read OPAL.

'No one could move that fast. No one human.
He's not human.'

'If I hadn't shown up when I had, the Luxen would've easily killed her.
Humans were so fragile.'

'It felt right. Like not taking the shit back kind of right. Weird. I knew I needed to stay away from her, but I didn't want to.

Initially I didn’t want to read this book because, let’s be real: The main male is an Arum. After being completely in love with the Lux Series, it felt like I was betraying Daemon Black.
Well, now I’m glad I got over it, as this is a really good book.


So, this book takes place in the world of the Lu ...more

So going into this book I wasn't quite sure how I would feel because I wasn't crazy about the Arum's from the Luxen series to begin with but I thought, "why not give it a try."

My reaction was.....

I'm in love with an Arum......WTF.....I seriously like them just as much as the Luxen now. How did this ...more

Before I started reading Obsession, I didn't think there was any way I was going to end up liking an Arum. The Lux books teach us that the Arums are basically the exact opposite of the Luxen. Arums are dark, evil, and devoid of emotion where the L ...more

I really enjoyed this one.. and it was great getting to see a different side to the Arum than we get to see in the Lux novels..there are obviously good and bad Arum along with good and bad Luxen.
