Obsidian (Lux seies) by Jennifer Armentrout

Can I just say for a book YA book about aliens this is freaking fantastic. Her is the summary from goodreads.
Starting over sucks.
When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I'd pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring.... until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.
And then he opened his mouth.
Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something...unexpected happens.
The hot alien living next door marks me.
You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon's touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I'm getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.
If I don't kill him first, that is.

This book actually makes me want to gush. Not only is there a hot male lead, but he's a jerk for about 3/4th the book. You can pratically fell the tension between Katy and Daemon as the try to to not like each other. I firmly believe a good author will pull you into the story and Jennifer did a remarkable job of doing it.
So to break down the story more.
Damsel in distress/ Heroine- Katy is a new favorite for heorines, yeah she can be whiny, but she's stubborn and downright funny. She also has admirable morals. This heroine was very relatable and made you want to root for her.
Dark knight-Daemon shows so much loyalty to his sister, and is secretly such a good guy. The book would be half a good though without his major personality flips. The fights between Daemon and Katy are extermly enteraining.
Best friend-Dee, Daemon's twin, is a very loyally friend who brings and intresting spark to the book. It is because of Dee that Katy gets drawn into the aliens world.

Finally below is the link to the steamy trailer for the book.

Finally I'm looking forward to Onyx the second book in the series is coming out August, 2012. funny gifs
