Name/Book:Daemon Black from Lux Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout
"Heavy footsteps came from the other side, and then the door was
swinging open and I was staring at a very broad, tan, well-muscled chest. A
naked chest. My gaze dropped and my breath sort of... stalled. Jeans hung low
on his hips, revealing a thin line of dark hair that formed below his navel and
disappeared under the band of the jeans. His stomach was ripped. Perfect.
Totally touchable. Not the kind of stomach I expected on a seventeen year-old
boy, which is how old I suspected he was, but yeah, I wasn't complaining. I
also wasn't talking. And I was staring. My gaze finally traveling north
again, I noted thick, sooty lashes fanning the tips of his high cheeks and
hiding the color of his eyes as he looked down at me. I needed to know what
color his eyes were.
“Can I help you?” Full, kissable lips turned down in annoyance. His voice

“It’s better than calling someone a douchebag, isn’t it?” He pushed out the

You have books!” I laughed as several people waiting in line looked over their shoulders. “Hand them over.” He clutched them to his chest, making moony eyes. “My life is now complete.” “My life would be complete if I could actually post a review on something other than the school library computers.” I did that about twice a week since my latest laptop went to the big computer heaven in the sky."
“I love you, Katy. Always have. Always will.“Daemon snatched the yellow packages from my hands. “Oh! Books! You have books!” I laughed as several people waiting in line looked over their shoulders. “Hand them over.” He clutched them to his chest, making moony eyes. “My life is now complete.” “My life would be complete if I could actually post a review on something other than the school library computers.” I did that about twice a week since my latest laptop went to the big computer heaven in the sky.”
