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:
Isn't that some Greek thing? Listen to me. They were arguing about this. Elijah was pissed because their father was going to ruin things with the Daedalus and that this Eagle thing was a bad idea, but Phillip didn't care or whatever. He told Elijah to mind his own business and to let it go. That it wasn't their place. He said something about Pennsylvania and where the kids were kept and if the Daedalus ever discovered what they planned, it would all be over.
And at this point, I'm like, wow, what's going on? Two grown men fighting like that? I thought one of them was going to push the other over the railing. But then,,,then it happened. Her normally tanned skin was pale. His clothes, body, everything just faded out like he'd vanished. And then he was there, but he wasn't human, Serena. He was encased in light. Head to toe, Serena. I got the hell out there, but,,," She cursed, lowering her hand to the table.
They heard me. I looked back and they were at the balcony door, both of them glowing,,," Mell trailed off, lower lip trembling. I mean, obviously, since I ran out of the building like it was on fire. I don't know what to do.
I haven't even gone home. I've been driving around waiting for you to get off, which took forever, by the way. I wrote it all down while I was in my car just in case,,,. I just felt like I needed to write it down before I forgot things, and I know I already have.
Mell was obviously worked up, so something had to have happened. Probably not what she thought, but something, and I felt for her. Phillip knows where I live. This morning? Then it hit me. How could I go to work after that? Dear God, what if something was really wrong with Mel?
Not just an overactive imagination, but something more serious? My training kicked in, spewing out possible aliments like I was doing a mental grocery list: The possibilities were endless. Phillip isn't human. Neither is his brother. I don't know what he is-maybe a government experiment or, hell, an alien.
I don't know. It was time to definitely get out of the bar. You're cool with that? I know you probably think I'm bat-shit crazy and all. This is a crisis situation and I know how to help.

I have ice cream and leftover lasagna. We can stuff our faces and try to figure this out. I've been too nervous. I really mean it. I quickly took care of the balance-a thing I was accustomed to. Mell had expensive tastes and rarely stayed at one job long enough to make a decent salary. Made no sense to me, because Mell was smart and had the education, but she just didn't apply herself.
Mell was only twenty-three, the same age as me, so I figured there was more than enough time for Mell to settle down a little, stay away from crazy rich guys, and use the degree in education she'd worked so hard for. I reclaimed Mell by threading my arm through hers. We passed a group of men coming in, their jackets off, ties loosened.
One of them, a tall blond, whistled under his breath, doing a "Hey girl, hey" that fell on deaf ears. And if everything else wasn't an indication of how wigged out Mell was, her ignoring a man looking in her direction sure was. Concerned about her, I steered her toward the parking garage. If Mell didn't change her tune by the time she was stuffed with lasagna and ice cream, I was going to have to convince her to talk to someone-anyone other than me.
Our friendship wouldn't allow for an unbiased diagnosis and I had never really diagnosed anyone before. Being the high school guidance counselor sort of limited the kinds of disorders I was exposed to on a daily basis. It was cooler and darker in the parking garage. Most of the entire back row, where I had to park, was completely in the shadows. Luckily Mell was parked in the first row, near the exit. We stopped by Mel's red Audi. As she dug out her car keys, she turned to me.
Of course not," I answered immediately. Doubt crossed Mel's face. I mean it. I really don't want to be alone right now. Like I've said, we'll figure this out together. I always hated parking garages. There was nothing creepier. Well, talk of glowing senator's sons was pretty creepy, too. My chest tightened. D 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! Hunter is the baddest and hottest bad boy.!! He is not your typical hero But as you read the book, you can't help but fell in love with him.. There is so much more Buddy reading with Mona: There is so much more to him..
So much more. I love that she never back down from Hunter's insults and words. She fights with him all the time and I honestly enjoyed every minute of it: D I liked seeing how the Arum see the world. They are not all bad just as the Luxen are not all good. I always enjoy Jennifer Armentrout's writing style and character development.
I loved getting both Serena and Hunter's Points of Views!! Jennifer made me love an Arum!! There was sarcastic humor and romantic suspense. I hope she adds more books to this series. Hunter has a couple of brothers that I would love to read more about!!!
Hunter and Serena View all 83 comments. Oct 10, Monisha rated it really liked it Shelves: Hello Hunter! In case you're wondering, yes, the Queen of Everything Jennifer L. Armentrout has done it again. Hunter is definitely the baddest hot male character JLA has ever written. Hotness incarnated!!! Has an ego the size of the planet.
But I had to say my part, right?! Arrogance that will put Daemon to shame. It's that simple. Dominant hottie. Did I mentioned that before?! Hunter was the badass of all badasses. I mean he was seriously like a super alien. He kicked some major Luxen ass. And I'm not sure I should be so happy about that. Hunter doesn't have "feelings". Especially not for humans or so he says. It's really too bad he's That kinds of sucks since I'm only eighteen, I'm lucky Daemon isn't that old, otherwise But those characteristics together with his sarcasm, cockiness, sexiness, funny side and ability to build up banter made me melt onto the floor, burn into ashes and rise above the ground.
And just when he go over protective and alpha to Serena — Yay! So, you can sense my dilemna, right?! Hunter was definitely the break out star of this book. I loved his one liners! He never failed to say something that sent me into lol mode.
Some of my favorite quotes from Hunter What in the fuckadeefuck had I meant by that? I stamped a claim on her after coming within seconds of killing her last night? Or do you need a couple more moments to return to sanity? But, let's start it, shall we? So, when Hunter is asked to watch over a human, and protect Serena from the Luxen who are after her, he is clearly not happy with the task.
Hunter is all hard edges, and attitude. She just happened to be in the wrong place, at the wrong time and saw something that has put her life in danger.
After her friend Mel was killed for the knowledge she possessed, Serena is on borrowed time. She knows that either the Luxen or the DOD are coming for her, she just isn't sure which, or when. And Thirdly, I thought we were supposed to hate the Arum?? I guess not I mean, wow talk about a switcheroo, now I'm kinda hating the Luxen In the Lux series, the Arum are evul aliens intent on eating and killing the innocent Luxen… But in this, the Luxen came across as the bad guys and the Arum just seemed like misunderstood underdogs.
It was actually kind of fun seeing things from the supposed bad guys perspective. I like it rough and raw, but your pleasure will always come first. Every single time. Alien sex is mad hot. This book is more descriptive and mature than the ones in the Lux series.
JLA definitely delivers on the hotness in Obsession. It was minuscule, so tiny, but it was enough to make me grin like the Chesire cat in Alice in Wonderland. It's sadistic but I clearly don't care.: I liked Obsession I really did, but I didn't lurve it. Maybe it's just because I was in a sort of reading funk or something but I did not love it as much as the other JLA books. I am very partial to male book leads with a badboy streak.
Daemon Black, for instance, thank you very much. Sadly, Hunter, this man I had some issues with. I liked him, yes, but he did not make my "book boyfriend list". Shouldn't she be depressed??? And then, I felt like at the end of every fight, she put up a great front, but backed down in the end Now, where's the fun in that? Maybe its just the feminist in me talking! OK, it is obvious that I do know who they are but I have a hollow feeling regarding their characters.
You see, Serena and Hunter? They were exactly like Katy and Daemon - but I seriously felt like Hunter was just moments away from calling Serena 'Kitten'. And now, the question of the year: Daemon Black or Hunter…whose real name we actually do not know because it is unpronounceable?
This one is easy for me. I will stick to Daemon! They say there are two sides to every story and this book gives you a taste of that.
Take your preconceived notions and toss them out the window. This books makes you root for who you thought were the bad guys and makes you think there's a lot more to the story then you thought. I have a whole new outlook on both the Luxen and the Arum. I don't know who or what to believe?!?! What does all of this mean for Origin?? Will we see more of Hunter? Sorry if you feel like the review is written by two different people, but I promise its just me and my insanity inner self talking.
View all 55 comments. Oct 29, Boyanna rated it did not like it Shelves: On Jennifer L. Armentrout 's blog: What can I tell you about Obsession? An Arum. You read that right. Obsession does take place in the same world that Katy and Daemon inhabit, Obsession is more mature, definitely targeted toward the older crowd.
It's an adult romance, so you know what that means. Obsession will change what you think you know about the Luxens and Arums. There will be some crossover with certain characters from the Lux Series. Obsession takes place in-between Opal and the 4th Lux novel, which is called Origin. Hunter and Serena are the lead characters in Obsession.
Update Teaser 1 Teaser 2 -- on blog Update Teaser 3: Tens of thousands are here, but there are hundreds of thousands out there. They will come eventually.
Teaser 4: Worry about yourself. Teaser 5: Things are kind of… messed up. And you knocked me out. Flushing all over again, I wanted to dart behind something, but I folded my arms.
What were you doing in my room anyway? Not that I need to explain myself, I was checking to make sure everything was secure outside. Where am I? The tip of my tongue literally burned to lay into him. What are you trying to do in here? I searched desperately for my jeans, but came up empty.
Hunter returned, hands on his hips. Too late. You probably knocked them on the floor. He did undress me while I was unconsciousness for crying out loud. My entire body felt red-hot. So I can add inconsiderate to your glowing list of attributes. Put that right next to: His voice low enough to send warning shivers down my spine.
Teaser 7: The main characters are Hunter and Selena. This book is not a Lux novel, but it does take place in the same "world" as the Lux series. It is a companion novel. Characters from the Lux series will crossover into this novel. The events in this book take place between Opal and Origin to give you an idea of timeline 5. Hunter is probably my second favorite guy I've ever written 7. This is a digital release only. Some lines from Obsession: Patience was a virtue I found pointless.
And u actually feel kind of good under me, so take your time. View all 18 comments. Feb 11, Stacia the club rated it it was ok Shelves: I am so sorry. I am SO sorry. I am sooooo sorry. It's not often when I write a review and worry about having a difference of opinion from my friends - because if I had to worry, I'd have to do it for every single book review with the varied group of friends I have.
Thankfully, I have awesome friends who don't mind me most of the time. Just a little. Because my opinion is probably going to be extremely unpopular. I honestly think Armentrout doe I am so sorry. I honestly think Armentrout doesn't translate to adult writing with the same fluidity in which she writes YA.
This is the second adult book of hers Serena's one year too old for my definition of NA that I've read and had issues with. Her brand of sexual tension in YA is a great build which keeps the reader invested.
Unfortunately, the way that the sexual detail transfers over to older characters reads so much like a copy of every single bad adult contemporary romance term which has already been over-used in thousands of other books. This is a case where I wish the author take a break from reading romance in order to completely forget the "Romance " generic terms so they can start over with their own personal descriptions.
The sex scenes were not only cringe-worthy, but I failed to find them arousing on any level. Wombs were tightening. Bundles of nerves were tingling. Male parts were twitching. Sensations were felt down to the core. Even worse, words were used to describe Hunter's male part as a "thick and demanding proud length that jutted between us.
The obligatory "like a drug" reference was present this time it was the taste of her skin. But that's not what made me upset. I was appalled by a scene in which going to need to probably tag this as a spoiler view spoiler [the guy was feeling up Serena while she was sleeping.
I put part of the scene in the spoiler tag below. There wasn't a flicker of hesitation when it came to what I did next. I wasn't fooling myself or anyone. I wanted to touch her and so I did. I know that Lux book 4 is about to come out, but I might need to put a few weeks of distance between this book and the next, just so I can pick up the Lux book and enjoy it for what it is.

They really weren't the good guys at all, but if I discovered anything, there was no such thing as white and black. There was a lot of gray in the middle. The second part after these two visit Luc, I think it has a slower pace and it did not grab my attention that much. And Luc steals their thunder. You're too testy. How many times have I've told you that you need to chill out, take a vacay.
Disney World is really fun this time of the year. Luxen are not always good, although they are light. The most important reality is that one can counterattack the other.
I read it after I finished the Lux series and I think it is the best way to enjoy the book. The above comments are in terms of the general story.
Now, about Hunter and Selena I loved the possessiveness and protectiveness of Hunter. He tries so hard to protect her from everyone who wants to hurt her. He does not hesitate to fight Luxen, Humans - even other Arum. Of course it will take him some time to realise that he loves her and that although he is alien, he can still react as a human and have human feelings. Fuck me. She is certainly cute in her attempts to show some backbone against the more dangerous and stronger predators.
It may remind you Daemon and Katy's initial dynamics. Her arms went around me and she held on just as tightly as I held her. It was then when I realized I was still in my true form. She was light against my darkness. Serena hadn't backed away or hesitated. She accepted me, all of me.
She always had. And frequently. Sometimes I think that this book tries too hard to have a New Adult feel and be a book for grown ups — not successfully always. View all 12 comments. Apr 24, Jennifer Kyle rated it it was amazing Shelves: Good vs.
Evil Light vs. Darkness Luxen vs. 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! Anyhow, she finds herself under the protection of an Arum named Hunter in his Virginian home. These two had tons of hysterical banter and loads of chemistry. I completely inhaled this book and I still want more…Hint Hint.
Side Notes: Luc what the hell is he? The missing link or is there another species involved here? Did you really have any doubts? View all 59 comments. Aliens everywhere, actually, which is why we have to leave. All the clues are pointing to aliens but can she really believe it? And more important will she manage to stay alive to find out the truth, uncover a conspiracy and maybe, hopefully avenge her friend's death?
Jennifer L. Armentrout
Hunter , an Arum on DOD's leash, a ruthless killer and merciless alien, is used to hunting down and exterminating Luxen. When charged with keeping Serena alive, he will have to fight her battles, his own prejudices and his deepest instincts to claim what he knows it's his, Serena.
Serena haven't backed away or hesitated. Funny, sexy, adorable, delicious and hilarious, this book is a non-stop adventure, a witty, adult fantasy read that will keep you glued on the pages and leave you daydreaming of men that are more dark shadows, than you could ever imagine.
This is the first book I read by Jennifer L. It will definitely not be the last. But let me state that, I am and I will always be Hunter's And he will be MINE!!! I have heard some whispers , that Arums were the bad guys, there is another male lead that is also hot, yada yada yada Oh come, on There is a new alpha male in town and he will kill you after messing with you and beating you within an inch of your life.
Because, bad-ass is the new Black! I want more Love you! You can check out their awesome reviews, here: View all 74 comments. Some Spoilers Predictable, cheesy and rather offensive. The story, the characters and the romance were pretty much exactly the same as all other PNR books except with aliens. I have to admit that I did find it somewhat entertaining up until the 'hero' got all rapey.
Obsession by Jennifer L. Armentrout
She wasn't a totally bad character, it was just that she was the same old bland-typical-boring-modest-do-goody-heroine. Basically the standard placeholder heroine. Instead of grieving for her friend, all she did was think about how hot the hero Hunter was, and how lusty he made her. She was a grown woman for fuck's sake yet she still blushed like a tween girl over every lame innuendo or cheesy look.
It was sickening how he thought it was okay to feel up girls in their sleep. What's with all these authors writing rape as if it's something sexy and hot. Serena kept banging on about Hunter's looks, and Hunter kept banging on about how feisty Serena was and how she had great hair.
They had no deeper connection or further development than that. In the Lux series, the Arum are evul aliens intent on eating and killing the innocent Luxen… But in this, the Luxen or Lux or whatever came across as the bad guys and the Arum just seemed like misunderstood underdogs.
Because vaginas are so lame. I don't. All in all, rubbish. It might have been okay if Hunter wasn't a rapey fuck, and if the characters had some depth. View all 44 comments. 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 Lux series, which I found super cool! View all 4 comments.

Tamika Alleyne pinned post 12 Aug The Syfy Channel hasn't had a really good rep in recent memory. Yeah, they were responsible for gems such as Battlestar Galactica and all those Stargate spin-offs, but they were also responsible for films like Sharknado. Expand text… Look, I'm not trying to hate on you if you like Sharknado — I know there are a lot of people out there that enjoy B-movies and how ridiculous they are, but if you're looking for to a return to the quality of Battlestar or Stargate, well, 12 Monkeys is your answer.
Developed by Terry Matalas and Travis Ficket, 12 Monkeys follows scavenger-turned-chrononaut James Cole Aaron Stanford as he travels from to present-day to kill a man named Leland Goines, who is allegedly responsible for an apocalyptic virus outbreak. In fact, in its early stages, it had no ties to the film.
But this isn't a comparison — I'm here to tell you why you should be watching 12 Monkeys. Season two's finale aired a couple weeks ago and I'm going to try really hard to restrain myself from geeking out too hard on you, because I'm of the opinion that it's currently one of the best shows on television.
If you're also a fan of the show, welcome! You definitely know what I'm talking about. To the newcomers: Oh, you're in for a ride. Admittedly, when you first dive into season one it takes one or two episodes to gain some traction. The actors are just settling into their chemistry with each other and the story is just ramping up, but it doesn't take long for you to invest yourself in these people.
We meet Cole as a bitter man — he's experienced nothing but a post-apocalyptic world while having to do terrible things to survive with his best friend Jose Ramse Kirk Acevedo.
They have decided to stop a scavenger lifestyle that resulted in killing innocent people which Cole is a lot more willing to do , and have hunkered down in an old warehouse where they protect a team of scientists lead by a physicist named Katarina Jones Barbara Sukowa.
The story of 12 Monkeys is so much more than a re-telling of the original. It simply uses the story and characters of the original as the foundation of something much bigger and infinitely more intriguing. Matalas and Ficket are very clever in their use of time-travel as a plot device, and they aren't shy about using it either.
We're rarely stuck in one time period at any given time, with characters constantly spread between at least two different time periods. This adds a certain pacing to the show that helps it rarely, if ever, slump into boredom or redundancy.
The directors of the series also make use of varying colors and tones as we visit different time periods which gives a nice reprieve from the bleak and darkened landscape of the future where our characters make home base. We're treated to story beats from Gilliam's film that mostly occur in the first half of season one, especially the introduction to the delightfully mad Jennifer Goines, played excellently by Emily Hampshire we'll get to her a little later.
Every character is on an epic journey, and because Matalas and Ficket have the entire scope of time and space to play with, it creates endless possibilities in terms of story i. It always keeps you guessing, and almost feels like it gets better episode by episode, never showing you its entire hand but still giving you just enough to piece the picture together. By the time you think you have it all figured out, however, think again. Matalas and Ficket are doing great work in keeping 12 Monkeys constantly fresh and intriguing, and executing misdirection with creativity.
Each of the first two seasons clocks in at a thirteen episode count which causes it to feel more like a Netflix binge series. Its pacing is arguably better than Daredevil's first two seasons — maybe even Jessica Jones for that matter. It's easy for you to settle in and want to blast through thirteen episodes in a row, although I wouldn't recommend spending thirteen hours in a row sitting on a couch due to health reasons and stuff like that.
I'm not judging, though. I watched Season five of 24 in its entirety leading up to a disappointing season six Let's move on, shall we? Perhaps the best aspect of 12 Monkeys is its characters, their journeys, and how they develop with the story. Matalas and Ficket have crafted a slew of memorable characters that, like the story, will keep you on your toes with their well-crafted, fun, and sometimes harrowing journeys. There's a warmth and familiarity with each of the characters because their backstories are thought out and used in ways to organically evolve them within the world that Matalas and Ficket have created.
Stanford plays James Cole with a guarded and hardened mentality. He's never had the chance to live in the world in which we know and take for granted every single day, but only remembers fragments of his childhood before it went upside-down. Behind his badassery — and he is a badass — Cole is a big ol' softy. He just wants to live a normal life, and that shines through during his stays in different time periods.
He finds solace in ordering whiskey sours every time he splinters back into time, and he enjoys music and dancing.
