After reading the YA series Lux, I had no idea the author was writing a more adult spin-off book set in the same timeline/world as Lux. I never cared for the Arum in that series but I did enjoy Hunter. And Holy Alien Hotness Ms. Armentrout gave him his own book. He was so cocky, ruthless and deadly but he had a soft side and it was smoking hot.
If you liked the Lux series, chances are you will like this one too. However, it’s a stand alone listen so you don’t have to read the Lux books to understand Obsession. My only complaint was with the narration, it should have been read by a male for the dual POV. I had a hard time distinguishing who was speaking at times (the narrator did a poor job with it). Otherwise, the story and writing were outstanding!

Who could have thought aliens could be this intense! Jennifer Armentrout has my vote with this book!
The basic of the book is Earth has more than just human inhabitants, the government knows this but the people don't! Serena (lead female) discovers the existence of these other races when she happens to watch her best friend murdered in an unnatural way. When she runs to the cops to report this, like any normal human would, she finds herself placed in the safety of one of these aliens. In comes in Hunter (lead hero), of the Arum race. The best words I have to describe him is cold, scary & sexy .
As the two are forced to stick by each other, a bond is formed. This is despite the fact that Hunter almost lost control of himself and 'ate' Serena not once but TWICE! There is a lot of story telling in this book, both Serena & Hunter piece together what is happening in the world as Hunter does what he does best and protects Serena and on the other hand Serena does what she can as a human and wiggles her way into Hunter's soul. She becomes his light when all he has ever known is darkness.
The book has very interesting characters... I will give away this wee bit of info: Hunter has brothers! who, well, I look forward to seeing how much trouble they can cause....
I like Alexandra's narration but I think they book would have been a lot more entertaining with a dual narration.
Overall I think this is book worth a credit, even better if there is a sale!
