The Lux series - Jennifer L. Armentrout

Lux series:
Obsidian - 2011

Ok guys so I finally FINALLY read the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout.
Its been on my list for a little while but I just didn't get around to it until now, and boy am I glad I did! I read all 5 of them in about a week, and that was between studying for Uni and travelling around England. I found that every spare moment I had went into reading these books, it also helped that I had them on my phone so they were accessible to me where ever I went.

So they centre around Katy who's the typical protagonist in a YA fantasy novel. She's funny, attractive, (even though she doesn't know it) and seems vulnerable but actually has good instincts when shit goes down. Katy moved to West Virginia and of course ends up living next to two alien twins, Daemon and Dee. Dee is really friendly and her a Katy become friends straight away and Daemon is incredibly hot. At first he seems like a total douche bag, but I think he is one of the best male figures i've read about in a long long time. He's super whitty, hot, big headed, hot, funny, hot, sarcastic, hot, romantic, oh and did I say Hot? Daemon makes this series as good as it is and having Katy retaliate his comments ends up putting me in a fit of giggles and weird alien fantasies...

Anyway throughout the series you learn a lot more about Demon and Dee and where they came from. Katy ends up being in the middle of a war between humans and Luxen's (which is what Daemon and Dee are) and she almost dies multiple times, with Daemon always coming to the rescue.

There some pretty intense sexual tension going on between Katy and Daemon, which is always interesting to read about, and unlike most YA novels they actually act like normal Horney teenagers, especially Daemon who always has sex on his mind.

More stuff happens in the series obviously but I don't want to ruin too much of it. Some things are pretty predictable, but there is also moment where you're just like "WTF how did that happen", and "I knew he was a scumbag". However, Daemon and Katy's relationship always manages to melt your heart and raise your expectations of males even higher (sorry guys). They get betrayed by a lot of people and every man and their dog practically tries to kill them, but Katy and Daemon are always together, without any of that breaking up for no real reason, thing that seems to happen in a lot of books.

All around I really enjoyed reading this series. I didn't have much hope for them as I've heard pretty shit reviews about other books from Jennifer L. Armentrout but am super glad I gave these ones a go.
If your looking for a series with an awesome man in it then these are definitely the ones for you! They are intense but also funny and really keep you on your toes.

If you end up reading this series let me know what you think!
