Review: Obsession: An Arum Novel by Jennifer L. Armentrout


Synopsis: Hunter is a ruthless killer, working for the Department of Defense. Most of the time he enjoys his job...but now he's been saddled with keeping a human from danger, and it's chafing pretty badly. 

When Serena Cross witnesses her friend's murder, she's thrust into a world where her enemies would kill to protect their otherworldly secret. Everything's topsy-turvy, and the Arum who's been sent protect her is totally arrogant. 

Hunter and Serena ignite each other's tempers even as they flee from danger - and yet, despite their differences, it seems they might be igniting one another's passion, too...

Holy hot alien sex, this book is sexy.

Set in the same world as Jennifer L. Armentrout's Lux series, this spin-off features a Beauty and the Beast type romance between a human and an alien. Hunter is an Arum, a big bad alien that hunts and kills other aliens - and enjoys it. Serena is your typical romance novel heroine - tough as well as vulnerable, mostly kind-hearted but with a bit of an attitude. 

Of course, Hunter and Serena rub each other the wrong way as soon as they meet - until they start rubbing each other the right way. (HAHAHAHAHA) It isn't long until they're having scorching hot extraterrestrial sex - and I thought the Lux series was titillating. You'll have to take several cold showers after reading Obsession.

As for the plot? Who cares? It was interesting enough, I suppose, but I was tempted to just skip to the naughty parts (and they are naughty.) Think Fifty Shades of Grey but with aliens. And more likeable characters. And sex that is actually erotic.

Honestly, this book is pure, sexy fun. Well, maybe pure isn't the right word. But if you read and loved the Lux series and are looking for something with more of an adult flair, you have to read Obsession.
