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?
So this is a spin off book from the lux series. You don't have to read the lux series but I do recommend it.
What is the story about.
The story starts with Serena's friend freaking out about something. Talking about some weird glow in the dark persons that supposedly are the senators son's. So what could go wrong right. Well serena is finding out that allot can go wrong when the senator wants you dead. The senator thinks serena's friend told her something, something very important. But serena doesn't know, what she supposedly knows.
Hunter isn't a guy who you should take home to your momma, he is a cold hard handsome pale eyed, dark haired, hot son of a bitch, oh yeah he is also an alien. There are two kind of aliens on earth. The luxen, who are light and there are the arum, who are darkness, shadow. Hunter is one of those arum. And he is assigned to protect Serena from harm . He didn't think Serena would be so gorgeous, spunky and kind of a fighter. He also didn't think aurum could develop any kind of feelings other than lust and hunger. And there is chemistry and lots of lust in their story.
What did I love about this book
I really really really loved this book. Hunter, omg that man is so freaking hot. And the intensity between him and serena, hot danm.
I also liked to read about the aurum more. It made me think about good and bad, because no race is either good or bad. That's also the case with the arum and the luxen. Both race's have good and bad people.
I really liked serena, she really handled herself well.
God I loved Hunter he was so snappy and sarcastic and just hilarious. I really love him, and he was hot.
OMG those scenes with serina, I feel my head getting red already thinking about it.
