5 stars - I love Dawson!
The last thing Dawson Black expected was Bethany Williams. As a Luxen, an alien life form on Earth, human girls are…well, fun. But since the Luxen have to keep their true identities a secret, falling for one would be insane.
Dangerous. Tempting. Undeniable.
Bethany can’t deny the immediate connection between her and Dawson. And even though boys aren’t a complication she wants, she can’t stay away from him. Still, whenever they lock eyes, she’s drawn in.
Captivated. Lured. Loved.
Dawson is keeping a secret that will change her existence...and put her life in jeopardy. But even he can’t stop risking everything for one human girl. Or from a fate that is as unavoidable as love itself.
I LOVE the Lux series and I LOVE Jennifer L. Armentrout and, yes, I LOVED this novella. I had already read the first two books in the Lux series before I read this, so I knew of Dawson. But I didn't really know him. This novella gives us more insight into who Dawson really was and his relationship with Bethany.
It was so entertaining and interesting to read about the relationship between Dawson, Daemon and Dee. Dawson was definitely a fun and charming guy and just really sweet. Nothing like Daemon in Obisidian. His relationship with Bethany was heartwarming and awesome. But I just really loved learning more about the Luxens and Bethany and her family. We get to see things from Dawson's perspective and Bethany's perspective which really let's the reader form a relationship with both characters. This novella anwsered some questions and gave some clues for future Lux books. It was a fast and entertaining read and one I would recommend. If you want to know more about Dawson, this is the book. So check it out!!
