Shadows by Jennifer L. Armentrout

From Entangled Teen:

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.

The Bad:
This is supposed to be a prequel novella.  There is nothing novella about it!  I would caution you that you will probably not be able to finish this in an hour before bed, so do not start it when you have to get up super early.  Also, I hate the ending to this book.  Not because it is not well written or does not flow or any of the other critical reasons, but because it is so sad and I NEED to know what happened!   

The Good:
I really enjoyed Shadows.  The contrast between Dawson in Shadows and Daemon in Obsidian is startling.  Dawson is so sweet and nice and a bit bumbling with Bethany.  It's really cute and so heartbreaking.  I definitely recommend Shadows and the entire Lux Series.  Aliens usually aren't my thing, but I will make an exception here.  :-)
