A Miss Cellaneous Endeavor
"Do you think I didn't enjoy kissing you? That I haven't thought about it every second since then? And I know you have. Just admit it." - Daemon Black in Onyx
Book Boyfriend for
I Would Boil His Boxers To Make Tea
September brings us the start of crisp weather, changing leaves, football and a new book boyfriend. Jennifer Armentrout provides us with the perfect one in her Lux series - Daemon Black. Daemon gives my feels the feels. He is sexy, swoon-worthy, scrumptious and downright out of this world - literally. So ladies, if the end of summer has you cooled off, this guy can stoke your fire. This month, I think I'll drink my coffee Black.
Who Is He?
Daemon Black is a Luxen who has been living on Earth for years. He has two siblings that also came to Earth, Dee Black and Dawson Black, as well as close friends that made the journey - triplets Ashley, Adam, and Andrew. Daemon is dreamy with his dark hair, emerald green eyes and dark eyelashes topped off with a naturally perfect tan. He walks around without a shirt on most of the time, even in the winter, showing off his well-muscled and defined chest.
Why We Love Him?
At first glance, Daemon comes off as arrogant. But as we get to know him better, the conceit and sarcasm turns out to be a mask to hide who he really is. He is protective, possessive and would do anything and everything to protect those he loves. In comes Katy, who initially thinks of Daemon as 'arrogant and annoying.' But what gal could ignore the swoon-inducing force of magnetism that is Daemon Black.... Not Katy (and certainly not me - 'the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak' and all that).
The thing about Daemon that gets my kicks my feels into high gear is how fiercely he loves. At this time I would like to admit People's Exhibits A, B and C, into evidence.
"I broke every rule of my kind to heal you and keep you with me. I married you and burned down an entire city to keep you safe. I've killed for you. Did you think I'd forget what you mean to me? That anything in this world-in any world-would be stronger than my love for you?" - Daemon to Katy in Opposition
"Did you think you could stop me? I'll burn the world down to save her." - Daemon to Dawson in Origin
“So I was thinking, there're eighty-six thousand, four hundred seconds in a day, right? There're one thousand, four hundred and forty minutes in a day...There're one hundred and sixty-eight hours in a week. Around eighty-seven hundred and then some hours in a year, and you know what?...I want to spend every second, every minute, every hour with you...I want a year's worth of seconds and minutes with you. I want a decade's worth of hours, so many that I can't add them up." - Daemon to Katy in Origin
I rest my case.
