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.
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?
Having read the Lux series (and loving it!), reading Obsession really gave me a whole new insight on the Arum. Like, I never thought I would like an Arum and Hunter was awesome. JLA really know how to create a bad boy character, even though Hunter is far from a boy. I must say that I really enjoyed the story. It was fast paced and action packed. JLA's writing is always amazing. I really enjoyed learning about the characters and looking at things from another view point. And we also got a couple of glimpses of some things to come in Origin which was really exciting! If you've read the Lux series, I definitely suggest you check this out. Even if you haven't read the Lux series, you could still read this book and not be confused considering it's a stand alone.

When it comes to the characters, of course, I loved Hunter! He was the complete bad ass package. From start to finished, nothing changed about him but his feelings and it was greatly appreciated. I know some get tire of the bad boys and their attitudes, but I loved every moment of it. His attitude, cockiness, and sarcasm was phenomenal and really made for some entertaining moments. Serena was a pretty interesting character as well. Sometimes, she could pick at my nerves, but overall I thought she was a pretty good character. I also liked how we ran into characters from the Lux series! Those green eyes :D The best thing ever!

As I stated before, I would definitely recommend this to you if you've read the Lux series :) I think you would definitely enjoy it. It was fun, but also intense. It definitely took you on a ride. You will definitely enjoy being back into the world again! I wish there was more once the book ended. It makes me want to read Origin even more :)


  1. I'm planing to read this one before I start Origin, not that right now I have time for either, but well. Anyhow it's hardly to imagine that I could like Arum but this is JLA she knows how to create swoon boys. I'm glad you enjoyed it. Great review :)
