Starting over sucks.
When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, outhouses, 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 marked me.
You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and the mark he left on me has me lit up like Las Vegas strip to the bad guys. 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.
And then things got really bad… (from Goodreads)
How amazing does this book sound? Frustrating and swoon-worthy alien guy, time freezing, marking, enemies, alien mojo... I want it.

So, what do you think? I'm in love with both the cover and blurb. I'm desperate to read this now! It's definitely my kind of book - sounds like the perfect mix of comedy, sci-fi, romance and action! Let me know your thoughts! :)
