Hideous by Devon McCormack
Hideous is a rather dark book that I actually enjoyed greatly. scarred and cursed after a demon possesses his father and kills his family Luke is put into a low paying job and monitored closely, for those who have been marked by a demon are more susceptible too demonic possession. In the attack that killed his family Luke lost an arm and an eye leading to some major self worth issues therefor he has problems believing anyone could possibly be interested in someone as "hideous" as him. Then comes Zack who is really an awesome guy, really. Zack is part of a little club that help cursed people like Luke and is who Luke turns to when his worst nightmare comes true and the demon who once possessed his father comes back for him. Though the book is rather gritty it is also a lovely love story.
