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.


My first after Obsidian ended was: I need more from Daemon and them I found this prequel, it’s not a full book but it’s bigger than just a novella. There’s not much of Daemon and it’s before Katy moved to town.
This is the romance between Dawson and Bethany. When Obsidian started we discovered they were death in a confrontation with the Arum, but this book is more about their romance and how Dawson fought the family to be with the person he loved.
There’s also a moment when Bethany almost died and he Dawson had to bring her back to life, but they after this so we don’t know much about it. But I have some ideas of what may have happened.
I liked the little I saw from Bethany and Dawson sounds way better than Daemon at first sight. He’s fun and young and carefree.
I liked this little book, but I need to know more about Dawson, because I have a feeling he’s coming back.
