I love reviewing books! (And I don't know what to put here yet because I am just trying the site out!)

Shadows (A Lux Novella)

Shadows - Jennifer L. Armentrout You can read all of my reviews at Alluring ReadsI have been waiting for this one! I absolutely devoured Obsidian and was smitten with Daemon (as a lot of people were). The way Jennifer Armentrout writes her romance is seething! It makes you feel lightheaded and keeps you up at night thinking about her wonderful characters. I think I went into Shadows with the wrong expectations, I went into it thinking I would come out knowing what happened to Dawson and Bethany. That did not happen, I feel like I came out of it with the same amount of knowledge that I went into it with. It actually felt like I read a shortened version of Obsidian with the other male triplet and a different human. Alien falls in love with human, alien accidentally reveals himself to said human, alien lights human up like a christmas tree, aliens fellow aliens are very unhappy about the reveal, things go awry and alien brings human back to life, alien and human have the same heartbeat. Yes, I did get the warm and fuzzies that I had expected due to the way Jennifer makes the romance seem epic and undeniable. I also enjoyed watching Daemon stew over his brothers choices while knowing that the same situation is in his future. We gained a little more insight into the life that the Luxen live here on Earth and into the bond between the triplets. But when I put this book down I found myself trying to see how it stands on its own by Obsidian and I just cant say that it does.I definitely still recommend this to anyone looking for an Alluring Read, but reader beware, you're going on a ride that's going to feel quite familiar.
