#YACrushTourney Round 2 ~ Vote for Daemon Black

 Hey guys!  It's Valerie from StuckInBooks here again to give you reasons to vote for Daemon Black, from the Lux series, in the YA Crush Tourney!

One of the things Daemon is known for PEN POKES in math class.  He does it to get Katy's attention.  Thought I'd use his approach!

 I've got some pen pokes for your to point out the reasons to VOTE DAEMON!
*PEN POKE* ---------------> Daemon is HOTT! 

"broad, tan well-muscled chest", thick sooty lashes fanning the tips of his high cheeks", "full, kissable lips", and eyes "so green and brilliant they couldn't be real". (Obsidian)

"Beautiful face.
Beautiful body.
Horrible attitude.
It was the holy trinity of hot boys". (Obsidian)

*PEN POKE* ---------------> Daemon loves the verbal battles with Katy.  And he brings out the best in Katy when they spar!

"I was two seconds away from kissing that pissed off look right off her face.  I wondered what she'd do.  Hit me? Kiss me back? (Obsidian - Uh-oh speghetti-o's)

Really, Daemon is protecting not only his family but Katy too when he tries to push her away but it is so fun to watch those two together and you can't help but see the chemistry between them.

*PEN POKE* ---------------> Daemon has the POWER

"Daemon threw up his hands and a great roar started under the car, shaking the road, and the trees thrashed outside. A loud crack sounded, like a blast of thunder, quickly followed by several more in succession. The earth seemed to shake and rumble....Trees were being ripped from out of the ground, their thick and gnarled roots dripping clumps of moist dirt...Oh my God, Daemon was uprooting trees." (Obsidian)

While all Lux are powerful, Daemon is the strongest of them all.  

*PEN POKE* ---------------> Daemon has a sweet side

"'I've always found that the most beautiful people, truly beautiful inside and out, are the ones who are quietly unaware of their effect.' His eyes searched mine intently, and for a moment we stood there toe to toe." Obsidian

There's even more sweetness from Daemon in Onyx!!

*PEN POKE* ---------------> Daemon has the chemistry with Katy

"Daemon kissed me.  There wasn't a moment of hesitation.  His mouth was on mine, and I stopped breathing.  He shuddered and there was a sound from the back of his throat, half growl, half moan.  Little shivers of pleasure and panic shot through me as he deepened the kiss, parting my lips." Obsidian

Oh yeah, these two have it bad!!
*PEN POKE* ---------------> Daemon is determined to protect those he loves

"There was no doubt in my mind that Daemon loved and cherished his sister.  He'd gladly give his life for her.  The way he was always looking out for her was more than admirable.  There wasn't a good enough word for it." Obsidian

Of course, Daemon's sister isn't the only one he feels this way about.  Thinking that includes our girl Katy! 

Check out this very sexy scene from Obsidian! The yummy cookie scene!


VOTE for Daemon Black! He is the complete package. 
Not that you need an incentive to vote for this amount of hotness but I'd appreciate you spreading the word so I have some incentives to spread the word.
First from Jennifer:

So for the sake of not going insane tomorrow and trying to keep up with two different matches, I'm combining the incentives. What that means is that each guy has to reach the set votes for the incentive. It's the easiest way for me to do this. But their winning incentive will be based on their own, individual win.
