Opal (Lux #3) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Opal (Lux, #3)

From goodreads: 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.

Oh how I love the Lux Series!!!  Is this her best book in the series, probably not because I thought the beginning was a bit slow but I still loved the story!  What’s not to love about Daemon and Katy??  What’s not to love about an alien romance??? I think I hear the song by Katy Perry, E.T. in the background…

Whenever I read this series I forget that they’re in high school because it’s definitely on the alien sexy side!!!  Their relationship is going strong and they finally understand each other or at least, they’ve made progress in that area.  I mean, it only took three books to get there and I’m not complaining. I think I love Daemon more in this book because he shows his softer side and he listens more without being a total brute.  Of course he’s still Daemon and he teases Katy non-stop.

“I have the feeling we just made a deal with the devil, and he’s going to come back and want our first-born child or something.”
Daemon waggled his brows. “You want kids? Because you know, practice makes–”
“Shut up.” I shook my head and started walking.”

There is so much alien drama and with Dawson re-emerging it made things all sorts of interesting.  Dawson is so damn loveable but Jennifer L. Armentrout keeps you guessing and you wonder…will he go postal after the ordeal he just went through?  Also, Katy is much more conflicted in this book and it made her seem very real because of some of the questionable things she has to do.

Between the DOD and the alien intrigue, I didn’t know if I was coming or going.   And the cliff-hanger left me so angry and worked-up but left me totally looking forward to the next book in the series, Origin.  I can’t wait!!

“A slow, wry smile teased Daemon’s lips. “Simmer down, Kitten, before I have to get you a ball of yarn to play with.” Annoyance flared deep inside me. “Don’t start with me, jerk-face.”

My final two cents:  I totally loved it even if it has the mother of all cliff-hangers!  ;)
