Obsession (Arum, #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

 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?
I was really excited to read this book as i m a big fan of Jennifer and love everything by her, and also loved the world she created in the lux series. However i was a bit disappointed as it didn't live up to to my expectations.

Hunter was very much like Daemon but i didnt end up loving him like i do daemon. He was a bit too much of an asshole and too bossy which annoyed me. Serena was alright too and i liked her. They bantered a lot which made them fun to read about and i enjoyed reading about them.

We get a totally different perspective of this world this time round. In the lux series, arums were portrayed as being completely evil but in this we get to see that its not completely black and white. You find out that there are some good arums too. I found it really interesting reading about luxens portrayed as being evil.

Overall i liked this book and the plot was pretty good. There were some things that werent developed enough like the project eagle which i would have liked to find out more about. If you're a fan of jennifer's books, i would recommend it to you
