Rating: 4.5 Stars
This was my favorite book in this series so far! I’ve been dying for Eric’s story for a while and not only did Jaime deliver it, she also blew me away with the revelations she made in this novel.
Eric has been the bad boy among the heroes of this series since book one. He is always the bloodthirsty one, the one ready to get physical and solve things the most violent way possible or even simply set his ...more
Totally Captivating and HOT!
Wow, I was totally swept away just after reading the first chapter. What an exciting fast paced and fast action - kicking ass throughout the whole book that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Fonda is one tough little chick and the romance between her and Eric is out of this world. I totally fell in love with Eric Aruda, I mean “What a Man, What a Man, What a Mighty Good Man!” TOTALLY HOT!
If you like the thought of ot ...more
Eric Aruda and Fonda Raine are both Offspring, children of a mysterious experiment gone awry. All of the Offspring have psychic powers; Eric has pyrokenesis and Fonda is able to astral project. Of all of the characters in the series, Eric is by far my favorite and I couldn't wait to FINALLY read his story. Hell who wouldn't love a guy who when asked what his power is said "I set people on fire"? HEE HEE

Fonda Raine is out to kill Eric Aruda, who'd torched her boyfriend. However, she didn't account for her attraction to him, and when a common enemy shows up, they must team up as they fight for their lives and that of their friends...
My first foray into this series and I wasn't disappointed! Though the start was rocky, both the writing and the story flowed from the time Fonda had Eric i ...more
Finally Eric is getting his chance for love. I have always liked Eric and we finally see a totally different side of him from the Hard ass tough guy he has been through out the series. Fonda defiantly isn't who we thought she was and I enjoyed watching her and Eric bring each others true selves out. There is plenty of action, romance and twists to keep you turning the pages. I liked learning all the new info given about the offspring's and how ...more

One aspect of this book I had a hard time buying into with this book was the change in Fonda. She went from hating Eric, to the point that it is her mission to kill him, to falling in love with him, in a matter of days. While I ...more
I didn't like Eric at the beginning of this series, he was so impulsive and dangerous. You could never really tell if he was a good guy or not. But we slowly saw the softer side of him, painting his sisters nails and the lighter humour he shares with his friends.
Throughout the series he made it very clear to all of them what he thought about them all falling in ...more
This novel is a page-turner thriller that perfectly incorporates superhuman abilities, with a science fiction oriented government conspiracy and a dash of steamy romance. From the onset I was hooked on the world created by Rush as well as the characters and first rate story telling.
'Burning Darkness' is the fourth novel in Jaime Rush’s Offspring series and what intrigued me most about this novel when I began reading was the premise. While superhuman abilit ...more
BURNING DARKNESS was sooooo super hot and emotionally engaging on all levels.
The brilliance of the offspring books pertains to how expertly Jaime weaves their “ability” as something they must accept and learn before it becomes their strength. This really gives me a chance to connect and root for her characters!
…and what an amazing read! As a fan of the Offspring series, I couldn’t wait to see how Jaime Rush finds Eric a match for his fiery disposition. Imagine m ...more

I love reading paranormal romances and this series is right up my alley. Fonda's need for revenge against Eric - coupled with their immediate attraction provided an unbelievable roller-coaster of intense emotions and sexual chemistry. Once I started reading it I couldn't stop.
There are so many ...more

I'm torn between this novel. On one hand I found it enjoyable, the romance and the interaction between the main characters were entertaining and managed to distract from the plot holes and illogical behaviors, but by the end of the novel the badly constructed plot became horribly evident. While I was still sucked in by the h/h it really did detract from the overall impact of the novel.
Eric being the hard ass & always looking out for everyone in the group. Never fully understanding why his 'people' would risk falling in love given their situation until he meets Fonda; a female version of him.
From the get go; this book is fast paced from one scene to the next with sarcasm in the right spots.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book ...more
I was really happy to see how the story of Eric and Fonda played out. It was interesting to me that the rest of the Offspring were relegated to major secondary (maybe even terciary) characters. So much of the background informtion on the Offspring is revealed in this story. As a reader I appreciate it when an author doesn't string me along forever just because they can. Obviously what is revealed isn't enough to end the series and there are additional books.
I'm, looking forward ...more
