TOUCHING DARKNESS by Jaime Rush (Review & Giveaway!)

TOUCHING DARKNESS
Author: Jaime Rush
Source: Author/Publisher
*I received this book free of charge in exchange for an honest review*
  • Mass Market Paperback: 400 pages
  • Publisher: Avon; Original edition (April 27, 2010)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 0061690376
  • ISBN-13: 978-0061690372
SYNOPSIS:

They live ordinary lives, but they are extraordinary. They are the Offspring, children of a mysterious experiment gone awry—and they are in terrible danger. 

Nicholas Braden has an uncanny psychic talent for finding things—which is why he's been recruited for a covert government program designed to hunt down terrorists. While his work for a shady controller named Darkwell is leading him down some very questionable alleyways, it's also bringing him closer to Olivia, Darkwell's stunning young assistant. A "good girl" with a wild, secret side, Olivia tempts Nicholas in ways he never believed possible—and in his business, a loss of control could prove fatal.
But there is something not right about the operation. And as Nicholas and Olivia's passion reaches a white-hot intensity, chilling reversals of good and evil, of right and wrong, suddenly threaten their very survival. 

MY THOUGHTS:
Nicholas is the Offspring from parents that were experimented on. The Offspring have special powers. He falls for the assistant Olivia, who works for Darkwell.  This book had the true paranormal feel to it with some passionate romance that brings the term Paranormal Romance to life. This book was my first novel I have read by this author except for a short story. I truly loved this story and can't wait to get my hands on the others in this series! It had suspense, drama and romance all rolled into one. I would love to get inside the authors head and see what is store in the future!

MY RATING: 

Outstanding Book That Will Stay On My Bookshelf

For Rereading!
