REVIEW: Onyx (Lux #2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Add to Goodreads


Being connected to Daemon Black sucks…

Thanks to his alien mojo, Daemon’s determined to prove what he feels for me is more than a product of our bizarro connection. So I’ve sworn him off, even though he’s running more hot than cold these days. But we’ve got bigger problems.

Something worse than the Arum has come to town…

The Department of Defense are here. If they ever find out what Daemon can do and that we’re linked, I’m a goner. So is he. And there’s this new boy in school who’s got a secret of his own. He knows what’s happened to me and he can help, but to do so, I have to lie to Daemon and stay away from him. Like that’s possible. Against all common sense, I’m falling for Daemon. Hard.

But then everything changes…

I’ve seen someone who shouldn’t be alive. And I have to tell Daemon, even though I know he’s never going to stop searching until he gets the truth. What happened to his brother? Who betrayed him? And what does the DOD want from them—from me?

No one is who they seem. And not everyone will survive the lies…


Recently I’ve almost give up on second installments of romance series. Usually the couple that finally found each other in the end of book one has to break up in book two or they get separated and the whole of book two is spent trying to find each other. Thank goodness that was not the case with Onyx I could have kissed Ms. Armentrout for her perfectly executed book two. It was better than the first.

There was still plenty of love/hate moments which makes this still a Luxe novel. If they would have just been lovely-dovey the whole time I also would have not enjoyed it. But not the case! Daemon puts on his sexy pants and tries to prove to Katy that he’s feelings for her and not just because of some alien mojo bond.

Katy makes some classic heroine mistakes like not telling other people who are involved when stuff gets real. Secret keeping is always aggravating but the mistakes have to made for the story to progress.

Super good. Best second installment I’ve ever read. And now one of my new favorites.
