Jaime's Review of Shadows by Jennifer Armentrout

From Goodreads.
The last thing Dawson Black expected was Bethany Williams. As a Luxen, an alien life form on Earth, human girls are…well, fun. But since the Luxen have to keep their true identities a secret, falling for one would be insane. Dangerous. Tempting. Undeniable.

Bethany can’t deny the immediate connection between her and Dawson. And even though boys aren’t a complication she wants, she can’t stay away from him. Still, whenever they lock eyes, she’s drawn in. Captivated. Lured. Loved.

Dawson is keeping a secret that will change her existence...and put her life in jeopardy. But even he can’t stop risking everything for one human girl. Or from a fate that is as unavoidable as love itself.

Holy crap this book was awesome!!!!!!! It also royally sucked L For those of you whom have read Obsidian ya’ll know why. I almost wish I would have read this first. I ended my night curled up in a ball crying myself to sleep after finishing this book! I dreamt of Dawson and Bethany. Daemon snuck in there too ;)

Dawson is everything that Daemon isn’t and falling for him was easy! I’d still have to say I love Daemon more but man it’s hard Dawson came close to stealing me away. This novella was fantastic and it gave us more information about the Luxen and the Arum and also the DOD people whom I really didn’t like.

I loved Bethany too I think that her and Katy would have been good friends! She wasn’t a smart ass like Katy but I think she held her own. I also grew to hate Ash and Andrew even more than I thought I could and; we got to see the bond between Dee, Daemon, and Dawson in a new light since this story was told from Dawson’s POV too and that was really cool!

Seriously guys if you’ve read Obsidian you MUST read this book and if you’re new to the series this is the perfect one to start with!!!!!!

I chose a cute scene between Dawson and Bethany because I needed some cute.

Her eyes narrowed. “Come on, with someone who looks like you, there’s probably a line of girls hoping to take you home.”

“So?” He reached out, tugging on the hem of her jeans. “I’m here with you, aren’t I?”

“Yeah, you are.” She frowned. “Sometimes I wonder why.”

Dawson stared at her for a moment then laughed. She couldn’t be serious. There was no way she didn’t know how pretty she was or how her laugh drew people to her.

Her frown deepened. “Are you laughing at me?”

“Yes,” he replied. He shot forward, moving faster than he should have, and caught her hand. “You can’t tell me you’re surprised that I’m here. I’ve been your shadow since the first day you arrived.”

  1. Sounds like an amazing book! I've been wanting to read this series since forever... So um, does Obsidian come first chronologically? I always thought it did. Or is Shadows the prequel?

    1. I think it can be read either way but honestly I wish I would have had Shadows first.

  2. I can't wait to read this. Oh my gosh your review made me want to stop reading what I'm currently reading and dive right in! Ugh, though I don't want to sob and I KNOW I will. Dawson sounds awesome but bad boy Daemon will always have my <3!

    1. IDK you may just change your mind I almost did lol ;) and it's not a whole book but it is a longer novella.

  3. Awww That's a sweet scene. I'll have to read it soon.
    Love the new blog design too!

  4. my review of this is *hopefully* going up tomorrow! Thanks for the review jaime! :)

  5. That sounds great and I loved Obsidian, so I will have to get it!
