Darkness Becomes Her by Jaime Rush

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.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Darkness Becomes Her is the sixth installment in the Offspring Series by Jaime Rush. 
     In this story we read about Lachlan McLeod,  turned 'monk' after he accidentally killed his mother while playing around with his ability to astral project, and Jessie Bellandre who as a child watched her uncle Russell kill her mother and possess her father when he was using his Darkness. After she escaped she had been running from him for 15 years. 
     While trying to kidnap Jessie, Russell badly injures Lachlan’s brother Magnus and Jessie saves him with her Darkness, which puts him in a temporary coma. Wanting Russell dead for what he did, Lachlan forces Jessie into accepting his help. Later they find out Lachlan is being assisted by the spirit of Olaf, and 18th-century kin of Lachlan and Magnus and he helps Jessie find her mother and father and put the pieces of her life together and find out what really happened those 15 years ago. 
     I loved the buildup in the relationship between Jessie and Lachlan, They didn't just jump into bed and fall in love. They struggled with their feelings and Lachlan's honor towards his brother.  It was nice to read that Lachlan had never been with a woman before.....but that didn't mean he didn't know what he as doing.  The love scenes were well written.
     This was the first book in this series by Ms. Rush that I have read.  As a series book I didn't feel lost not having read any others.  I definitely am interested in reading the rest of the Series and I cannot wait to read the next book. 
     My only complaint was the ending.  I was waiting to turn the page to see Lachlan go see Magnus when he awoke and to tell him what happened, but it just ended,   But it just makes me (not that I wasn't going to anyway) more anxious to read the next book.
     Thank you Jaime for the opportunity to read and review Darkness Becomes Her....I highly recommend this book and the Series.
