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?

I have totally fallen in love with Jennifer L. Armentrout's books.
Her Lux series in particular. So when I saw there was an adult spin off series centred around the 'bad guys' of the Lux series, The Arum- I couldn't wait to delve into it.
I loved this! It was fascinating to read from the 'other side' of it.
Hunter was such a fantasitc hero or anti-hero. Dark, arrogant and extremely sexy. He's always so honest about his nature- he's a killer. He has to feed off of energy to survive- either Luxen or humans. And yet- you love him anyway.
Serena was a likeable heroine. She wants justice for her murdered friend, and is unwavering in her fight for it. She makes some incredibly face-palm inducing, stupid decisions- but at the same time, you understand them.
Their chemistry, like with all Jennifer Armentrout'd love interests- was smoking. I thought I was going to combust...several times.
Seeing finally give into and admit his feeling for Serena was hot as hell. Not going to lie- I loved him going all protective and caveman. But Serena was no pushover when it came to him either.
Over all- I freaking loved this book. It was a great spin off and I would love to see more from Serena and Hunter andmore Arum in the future.
5/5 stars.
