Book Boyfriend: Daemon Black from the Lux series

We decided that Thursday needed a little pizazz and stumbled on this meme while hanging out at one of our favorite blogs, A Book and a Cupcake. So we took ourselves over to The Unread Reader to see what it was all about and join the fun. The Unread Reader features this meme on Wednesdays, but we figured moving our participation to Thursday wouldn't hurt anything. We'd love it if you'd leave a comment if you participate in this so we can check out your book boyfriends as well.

My Book Boyfriend is
Daemon Black

from the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout
My ideal Daemon is Pepe Toth. No matter what my thoughts were before, after having seen the book trailer for Onyx and all the photos Armentrout has been posting on Facebook and Twitter, Pepe will always be Daemon to me!

Facts about Daemon: 
*He is not human. His human form, however, is HOT.
*He has a brother and a sister.
*He's not known for being a nice guy. In fact, "asshat" is one of Kat's favorite descriptors for him.
*He's fiercely protective of the people he loves.
*He's capable of tremendous speed and power.

Appearance:  *wavy dark hair
*brilliant green eyes with thick, sooty lashes
*full lips, high cheek bones,  and mocking eyebrows
*tall and sleek
*Daemon has a very broad, tan, well-muscled chest. His stomach is ripped. He often goes shirtless.
*In his true form, he is a blinding form of light.

 Daemon quotes: 
"I'd always avoided confrontation in the past, but this guy was flipping my bitch switch like nothing else." ~ Katy, page 8

"My throat felt dry. Beautiful face. Beautiful body. Horrible attitude. It was the holy trinity of hot boys."  ~Katy, page 20

" 'I'd rather eat glass than spend time with you.' He laughed. 'That sounds drastic.'" ~ Katy and Daemon, page 32

"I've always found that the most beautiful people, truly beautiful inside and out, are the ones who are quietly unaware of their effect." ~ Daemon, page 53  

"He doesn't hate you. I think he wants to, to be honest. But he doesn't. That's why he acts like that." ~ Daemon's sister Dee, page 93

Why Daemon is my Book Boyfriend: Daemon has grown on me. I was put off by his attitude at first, but he has since won me over with his loyalty and protectiveness. As he has given himself over to his feelings for Katy, so have I found it impossible to deny my love for him. 

There is more of Daemon to come!  Onyx, the second book in the series, is due out Tuesday! Be sure to read Obsidian soon so you can get in on all the fun of anticipating its sequel!


  1. He sounds like someone I want to get to know! ;)

    1. He's a button pusher, that's for sure! But sometimes he pushes just the right buttons. ;)

  2. I really need to read Obsidian! I hear so many great things about Daemon...can't wait to meet him. Great quotes!

    1. Thanks, Jennifer! Don't keep Daemon waiting too long. ;)

    2. With Onyx coming out...I might read them together! Isn't there a Daimon in the Covenant series?! Or am I totally confused??

  3. You're right, Michele. Daemon here is the hottie boy. Daimons in the Covenant series, however, are bad guys- kinda like Hematoi zombies.

  4. I love this guy already! Can't wait to read this!

  5. I'll be checking out both series eventually, Paula! Just because you are such a fan...I have to see what you love so much as we have similar tastes!!

  6. He sounds like my kinda guy! I cant wait to read these books, Ive heard so many awesome things about them!

  7. Yeah, the hot alien next door definitely works for me, arrogant or not:p

  8. Ooh boy. The last thing I need is to be attracted to another fictional character. THANKS FOR THAT. ;)

  9. I WANT THIS BOOK NOW!!! I just saw the trailer for the first book and I am speechless. I so need to get mt hands on this book ASAP :D

  10. I would love to lose myself in those gorgeous green eyes of his. Sigh...

  11. He sounds dreamy, love a guy with attitude :)
