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…

SWEET BABY JESUS. Daemon just made me swooning, gushing, drooling and melting over him! He is so much better in this book! I love it! I don't even know what to say. I would just swoon over him and gushing it all out or whatever. This is seriously good! Crap. I'm babbling.

There's this new character named BLAKE. And Daemon was always saying his name wrong just to annoy him and Katy. So I tallied it and list the names he called Blake. It's as follows (respectively. :P): Ben, Brad, Bob, Biff, Bart, Bo, Benny, Bobby, Boris, Bryon, Flake, Hank, Butler, Bilbo, Bobo (I laughed at this one, cause in my language, bobo means stupid/idiot), Bartholomew, Butter-face, Bradley and lastly Bill. 19 different names. Hah! Isn't Daemon adorable and such an ass? :P

Though Katy... Katy... Katy... I guess making wrong decisions in a book were required. >_< Well, I didn't think that I'll be tearing up with their confessions and whatnot by the end of 80% or so. Anyway, this book is so action-packed that it wouldn't bore you and maybe just smack Katy for keeping things from Daemon and for being such a stupid girl. But overall, love the way it was written. I seriously couldn't wipe my stupid grin off my face when I was reading the book. :)

I have my favorite scene! It's the scene where Katy made the vlog for her In My Mailbox Meme. :) Awww. That's too cute and I wish it's really real. :)

And oh boy, that's the ending? Well, it is a cliffhanger, in some ways. But still, it's not a strong cliffhanger, in my opinion. So yes, you could still read this one. You'll love it! :)
