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 alon...

    Since I wrote it, I kind of think it deserves 5 stars. =)

    Aliens, hot aliens? DAEMON BLACK???? YES PLEASE!

    Loved this book, read it in 2012 but decided to come back and write a review for it. This is actually the book that made me start book blogging!

  • Blacky *Romance Addict*

    Katy and her mom move to Vest Virginia after her father's death, and she meets her gorgeous, irritatingly rude neighbor Daemon.

    The tension between them is incredible, but with Daemon acting like a jerk, they end up fighting most of the time, and the other times are just swoony as hell!!!!

    Since Daemon behaves terribly toward Katy, and his sister Dee forces him to be nicer to her, which leads to some very very nice scenes like car-washing, swimming in the lake, the swing scene (*sigh*), the kitchen scene and well basically every scene where Daemon and Katy are together (and there are a LOT of those)

    One night Daemon saves Katy from a terrible accident and she realises he's not what he seems, he is in fact - an alien!

    The laptop scene... No comment to that, you just have to read it ;)

    The ending was awesome, action packed, but also emotional and sweet. And funny. Well it was everything!!!

    *sigh*

    Well, first thing you need to know is that with Daemon, hearing something romantic come out of his mouth is practically impossible, even though he had his wonderful moments which I treasured because they were rare :D

    But it was all still there, even though he behaves like a jerk to her, he's still protective, and man, that made some amazingly swoony scenes in here <3

    And even though I've said it before, every scene with those two was amazing, it was full of tension and butterflies <3

    Can't wait to see how their relationship moves forward with each book :)

    He's the overprotective brother, trying to prevent Dee (the sister) from forming a friendship with Katy, the new neighbor.

    He's kind of hot and cold toward her, one moment flirting, the next insulting, probably because he's intrigued by her, but at the same time, he knows what humans can do to him and his family :(

    As he reveals himself to Katy, he knows he has to keep her safe from his enemies, and they have to spend a lot of time together (ehehehehe).

    Well, for me, Daemon was insta-love. I loved every scene with him, when he was a jerk, when he was swoony and protective, and yeah, even him being so incredibly full of himself :DDD

    My favorite scene with him was when they were at the lake and she hugged him <3 I don't know why, but he just seemed so vulnerable there, maybe because he's so tough throughout the book, I don't know.

    Anyway, love love love him!!!

    She's a book review blogger, pretty much an ordinary girl, whose life changes completely once her dad dies and she moves to West Virginia with her mom.

    She becomes friends with her neighbor Dee, but frenemies with Dee's brother Daemon, who tries to push her away from his family, but at the same time flirts like hell with her :D

    As time goes by, it gets tough for her to fight the attraction, especially because Daemon feels it too, and on top of all that, he has too look after Katy in case his enemies target her.

    For a heroine, she's pretty great :) She gives as good as she gets, and it was so fun to watch the bickering and fighting all the time :)

    She is brave, and I have to say, I am very very happy with how she deals with the enemies! It surprised me, and I guess that's why I love that fact even more :)

    The end fight was awesome even though I can't say I understand everything that happened, but I think I'm not supposed to (aka it will probably be explained in the next book).

    The pic says it all :DD

    I devoured this book! I loved every single scene between the MCs, and the good thing is, the book is full of those!!! Honestly, I just can't think of anything that bothered me here or that I didn't like. Anything!

    Maybe this is just the new fangirl me talking, but I don't know, this book definitely deserves 5 stars from me, and it's going into my bestest of the best shelf :))))

    V... I love you woman! I would've never picked this up if it weren't for you. Yes you told me so, but I just have to say THANK YOU!!! <3

    This should be made into a movie.

    3.5/5

    This book was such a quick, fun read! I haven't read an alien book before, and I found these aliens to be so interesting. Katy was a great main character and I LOVED that she had a book blog. It was a little repetitive at times and the constant bickering between Katy and Daemon, although funny and filled with sexual tension, was almost too much sometimes. However, I'm invested in this story now I will be picking up the next book sometime in the future!

    Not long ago, someone I know got into a really bad relationship. It was the kind of relationship where the guy was a pretty-faced douchebag who would tell her he loved her one minute and the next he would be making snide remarks about her weight and about her career, or standing her up when they were supposed to be going somewhere. But the worst part of this relationship wasn't him, it was my friend.

    Everyone she knew, including me, warned her away from him, told her he was bad and that she dese

    Not long ago, someone I know got into a really bad relationship. It was the kind of relationship where the guy was a pretty-faced douchebag who would tell her he loved her one minute and the next he would be making snide remarks about her weight and about her career, or standing her up when they were supposed to be going somewhere. But the worst part of this relationship wasn't him, it was my friend.

    Everyone she knew, including me, warned her away from him, told her he was bad and that she deserved better... you know, the usual. And she knew exactly who he was, knew that he was playing constant mind games.

    . And she honestly believed she could change him. She would say "he's just an immature guy" as we sat with her while she cried because he'd made her feel like shit again. We subtly tried to remind her that there was such a thing as self respect and she was rapidly losing grip on it.

    I sat there and wondered how someone so pretty, smart and full of fiery personality could truly believe this was something normal that she had to accept and get through. But it's when I read books like

    that I receive a painful reminder that this kind of psychology is not only way too frequent, but also constantly reinforced by books selling such relationships as romantic and passionate. Do I need to point out the obvious example?

    Some people said this book was another

    - complete with sappy heroine, paranormal love interest and a shit ton of angst. Honestly, they insulted

    with that one.

    . I'm pretty sure Edward was actually kinda nice to Bella in his weird archaic "I won't shag you before marriage but I will sneak into your room and watch you sleep because that is totally acceptable and normal" way.

    Daemon, on the other hand, is an arrogant and downright RUDE dickwad. I'm not even going to pretend to understand the attraction because I don't see it. 'kay, he's beautiful, whatever. He also talks to the MC like she's crap he just stepped in, whilst interspersing the abuse with heated kisses and whatnot. There is nothing,

    attractive to me about making out with a guy who insults me and acts like I'm worth less than nothing. I don't get it.

    The heroine - Katy - isn't terrible. She has high points where she pulls out some well-placed snark AND she's a book blogger - woohoo! But she has plenty of eye roll-worthy Mary Sue moments where she frets about her obvious beauty. In the first chapter (I think) she describes herself in a way that is supposed to imply she is somehow plain - with "curvy hips, puffy lips and huge eyes". So... she has big eyes, full lips and curves. Yeah, we really feel your pain, Katy.

    I realise I just basically trashed a book that tops a lot of people's favourite lists - sorry. I am currently working my way through some popular YA that I always meant to read but never did, so that's how I crossed paths with this book after avoiding it for so long. But yeah, guess you figured out this one wasn't for me :)
