No one is like Daemon Black.
When he set out to prove his feelings for me, he wasn't fooling around. Doubting him isn't something I'll do again, and now that we've made it through the rough patches, well... There's a lot of spontaneous combustion going on.
But even he can't protect his family from the danger of trying to free those they love. After everything, I'm no longer the same Katy. I'm different... And I'm not sure what that will mean in the end. When each step we take in discovering the truth puts us in the path of the secret organization responsible for torturing and testing hybrids, the more I realize there is no end to what I'm capable of. The death of someone close still lingers, help comes from the most unlikely source, and friends will become the deadliest of enemies, but we won't turn back. Even if the outcome will shatter our worlds forever.Together we're stronger...and they know it.
The third book in Jennifer Armentrout’s Lux series is Opal. Katy and Daemon are now officially a couple, but that doesn’t mean things are perfect. Katy still doesn’t feel like she belongs with someone as gorgeous as Daemon. Maybe if Daemon would say those three little words (“I love you.) to Katy, then she wouldn’t have doubts. What ever is said or not said between them, one thing’s for certain: they’re madly in love with each other. Sadly, following the events in Onyx, Katy and Daemon struggle with trying to downplay the one thing that makes them smile.
“I tilted my head back against his shoulder, wondering how he’d gone from douchebag extraordinaire to this.. this guy who still infuriated me but also constantly surprised and amazed me. To this guy I”d fallen madly in love with.”
Daemon has come a long way. The douchebag we first meet in Obsidian has become a doting boyfriend. Daemon and Katy’s romance heats up in a big way this book, but so does all their friends’ cockblocking. That was the most frustrating thing for me while reading this book. Usually when a couple take things sloooooooooow I spend all of my time waiting for them to get to second base. Daemon and Katy did that in the first book, so I thought they would get right down to the s-e-x. Of course things end up progressing towards that direction, but all the interruptions leading up to that moment made me want to throw my kindle against the wall.
“You really shouldn’t trust a soul in this game. Not when everyone has something to gain or lose.”
“I thought the whole thing with Blake would ruin this afternoon, but I had underestimated the magnetism of Daemon and his kisses.”
“The road to hell is paved with good intentions.”
