This is a stand alone novel that is an adult spin-off of the Lux Series. You do not need to read a Lux book to read Obsession and vice versa. Although it’s extremely beneficial. :)

He’s arrogant, domineering, and… To. Die. For.

Hunter is a ruthless killer. 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: protect a human from his mortal enemy.

Serena Cross didn’t believe her best friend when she claimed to have seen the son of a powerful senator turn into something… unnatural. Who would? But then she witnesses her friend’s murder at the hands of what can only be an alien, thrusting her into a world that will kill to protect their secret.

Hunter stirs Serena’s temper and her lust despite their differences. Soon he’s doing the unthinkable—breaking the rules he’s lived by, going against the government to keep Serena safe. But are the aliens and the government the biggest threats to Serena’s life… or is it Hunter?


“Obsession” was an amazing, entertaining, and action-packed spin-off novel of the Lux Series by the ever so talented, Jennifer L. Armentrout. She most certainly knows how to write a captivating and thrilling book, and she definitely hit a home run with this one.

      It was so strange to read about the Arum when I was used to them being portrayed as the bad guys in the Lux Series, but I actually really enjoyed reading about them and being able to see how they felt about everything: the Luxen, DOD, etc. It definitely gave me a new perspective of their kind. The storyline was awesome and intriguing, and there was never a dull moment. Some events and places tied in with the Lux Series, which was great, but you wouldn’t necessarily have to read that series in order to read “Obsession.” Although it certainly wouldn’t hurt and would definitely be worthwhile.

     I instantly fell in love with Serena and Hunter, and thought they were amazing main characters. I loved how the book was told from both of their POV’s. It was awesome to see what they were thinking and feeling, and it definitely made it easier to connect with them. They were extremely entertaining and could definitely give each other a run for their money. They were both strong-willed, independent, head-strong, humorous, sarcastic, snarky, feisty, kind, caring, and considerate. And even though Hunter didn’t always display his affections openly, he more than made up for it towards the end. They both balanced each other out well and I honestly thought they were a perfect match. I loved their chemistry together and how their relationship progressed throughout. The ending was perfect and better than I could have ever expected. Although I really wish there was more to their story. Fingers crossed! :)

     This paranormal romance novel was absolutely phenomenal, and I loved everything about it. The storyline and characters were extraordinary and they had me completely addicted from beginning to end. You will sooo not be disappointed with this book, and I seriously urge you to give “Obsession” a chance. I promise you won’t regret it!

Rating: 5 STARS
