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?

"My life would not be complete if I didn't hear this story."
 
You're so right, Lore. So right! "Obsession" is such a great addition to the whole Lux series. It gives you the chance to understand the "bad" boys of the series so much better. And let me tell you, they are super interesting - I never saw them as "thinking" ... aliens. They always seemed to be pure evil, always wanting to kill but Hunter, Dex, Lore and probably a lot more proved it wrong.

I freaking loved Hunter! He's cocky, funny, very arrogant and extremely goodlooking ... handsome, sexy and obviously a sex god. Oh, and he's an Arum! His point of view was interesting to read and all the information he gave Serena about his kind were amazing! I don't want to give too much away but I loved the way he changed throughout the book. And well, his scenes with Serena were always either hilarious, super cute or extremely hot ... yes, there were also serious parts but damn, I loved all their bickering! And a big YES to Serena! She seemed a bit shy at first but once all that shit happened and she met Hunter she became really badass! I just loved her a lot!

"His commanding attitude sparked a rebellious nature I never knew I had."
 
It's really impressive how JLA managed to make me completely dislike the Luxen in this book ... because I really did. They were UGH and I wanted to punch them all because of what they planned and everything else. I'm kind of torn now who to like more - Arum or Luxen? Hunter made me understand the Arum a lot more but then there are also the "good" Luxen like Daemon .... oh god, i don't really know.

All I know is that I really, really enjoyed this book and that I love Hunter, yes. I hope we will see him and Serena in Opposition again! I really need to! Maybe even with Daemon and the rest as a team against the evil ... Arum and Luxen. Together with Luc and some badass origin kiddies. Gooooood, I'm so excited for Opposition now, ahhh!
