Review: Oblivion by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Oblivion (Lux #1.5) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Experience the epic love story of OBSIDIAN as told by its hero, Daemon Black…
I knew the moment Katy Swartz moved in next door, there was going to be trouble. Lots of it.
And trouble’s the last thing I need, since I’m not exactly from around here. My people arrived on Earth from Lux, a planet thirteen billion light years away. Plus, if there’s one thing I know, it’s that humans can’t be trusted. We scare them. We can do things they only dream about, and honestly, we make them look weak as hell. ‘Cuz they are.
But Kat is getting to me in ways no one else has, and I can't stop myself from wanting her—or wanting to use my powers to protect her. She makes me weak, and I’m the strongest of our kind, tasked with protecting us all. So this one simple girl…she can mean the end for us. Because the Luxen have an even bigger enemy—the Arum, and I need to stay on my game.
Falling for Katy—a human—won't just place her in danger. It could get us all killed, and that’s one thing I’ll never let happen...

    I wanted to read Oblivion because I love Jennifer Armentrout and I have adored this series, so of course I would jump at a chance to read from the perspective of the hero, sexy, charming, frustrating Daemon. 

    I really enjoyed getting inside Damon's head it was interesting to see what his first impressions of Kat really were. and learning about his motivations and his complete back and forth and see the obvious attraction between the two to begin with that physical chemistry they had.

    I also like that it wasn't scene to scene repeat of the first book. there were some of the most important ones and the ones that were like oh we need to know what he's thinking in that moment. but there's also some other scenes that weren't in the first book and we also get to see more of his relationship with Dee behind closed doors and the sense of responsibility that really he really had on his shoulders and the guilt about his brother and the worry that further interactions with Kat could endanger his family and he never really wanted her hurt either.

    I enjoyed it, and there is bonus content of more from Daemon's point of view, and I will def check it out when I have time. Enjoyable, hot, and I loved their banter as with the first book from Kat's point of view.

Bottom Line: Enjoyable to get into his head and get some new scenes.

My question to you, my lovely readers:
Do you read books rewritten in a different point of view? What book would you like to read from another POV, even if it doesn't actually exist?
