Losing her father, her only family she had left at the tender age of five, Amy only depends on herself living through her sexy dreams of a sexy stranger every night. Until one night she awakes to find a stranger whom pretty much tells her she has a gift and people are after her! Amy at the start of the book is a shy, living her life out hiding away from the world. Through her need to find out the truth Amy really comes into herself becoming a strong woman willing to risk her life in order to save the love of her life Lucas.
Lucas is one hottie period. With his sexy Mona Lisa smile that hides more then he lets on, Lucas as always held a special connection to Amy since they were children. Lucas loves Amy deeply, but fears for her and feeling his gift may put her in danger. There was still a few loose ends left about Lucas and his gifts that will no doubt be talked about in later books. The love scenes between Amy and Lucas were slow and hot, with nothing on the rough and tumble side, but was sweet and slow and had me reaching to turn on my fan on high.
While most of them took place in the dreams their were still very hot and really showed the connection and love between Amy and Lucas. The villain seem at times a little OTT, but fit the bill as he goes after the Offspring I loved this story to bits, but the only two problems I had overall with this book was the lack of interaction between Lucas and Amy, they only really talked in the dreams and most of the time their to busy making love to really talk. When they finally get down to some face to face time it already toward the end of the book.
I would have liked it better with the loose ends left for the next books and more on a HEA between Lucas and Amy then a sudden rescue filler. View all 18 comments. May 18, Julie jjmachshev rated it really liked it Shelves: reads.
I freely admit that I picked up "A Perfect Darkness" mostly because of the way cool cover. Once I began reading though, it didn't take long for author Jamie Rush to envelope me in her tale of modern urban fantasy with a strong bent toward romance. Amy is a computer nerd or is that nerdette?
She savors her nights when she dreams of a handsome lover whose face is always hidden. Amy has always had the ability to discern intent from what she calls the 'glow' that surrounds other people. Her life changes the night a man breaks into her apartment, warns her that her life is in danger, and is then shot by three other men who break down her down and cart him off. They try to tell her they're with the FBI and that they just saved her from a serial killer So she ventures out from her apartment to hunt down the truth for herself; who was the man who broke in; why choose her; who are the Offspring; and why did the time spent with her 'serial killer' feel more right than wrong?
A strong and neatly plotted tale from new author Jamie Rush. How could I pass that up? Especially for a debut novel, I was impressed with the weave of the plot, the pace of the action, and the flow of the story. The heat level is NC at the least and even the sex scenes were well-written and well placed.
Sure there were a couple of weak spots for me, but I enjoyed this story enough to make me put her next book, "Out of the Darkness", on my to-buy list for September View all 4 comments.
A Perfect Darkness
May 18, Summer rated it did not like it Shelves: paranormal , paranormal-romance , did-not-finish. A Perfect Darkness starts out by introducing Amy Shane and her very isolated life. She works from home fixing computers and retrieving lost data. She can also see people's 'glow' or aura. Every emotion has a corresponding color that shows up in the person's aura. She's also been having dreams about a certain mysterious man who seems to care for her.
That night however her dreams are invaded by a real man named Lucas.
He awakens her from her dreams but claims to know Amy already and warns her of A Perfect Darkness starts out by introducing Amy Shane and her very isolated life. He awakens her from her dreams but claims to know Amy already and warns her of danger. Shortly after the man comes he is shot and taken away by equally mysterious men claiming Lucas was a serial killer.
Shaken and unsure who to believe, she calls her uncle to help her find information on the mysterious Lucas. Later she's surprised again, this time by being kidnapped from people who claim to be friends with Lucas. They worry when Amy tells them what happened to Lucas and warn her she may be the mysterious men's next victim. This was about as far as I got into the book before I gave up. I think my problem with it is that to me sometimes the characters feel too flat and the story too rushed in PNR. I thought the concept of this book and it's ideas really interesting.
I just didn't feel connected to the characters and the story didn't feel built up enough for me. I know these books are popular and I'm glad for the people who've enjoyed it. I just think it had too many of the PNR issues for me to really get into it myself.

I found the whole concept of the Offspring very intriguing, and as the book went on we learned more and more about them and how they were defined. The Offspring are just that the children of people that had physic abilities that were experimented on, but had bad side effects.
As the children grew up they were watched from a far to see if they would manifest any of the abilities their parents had. As they stared to show these powers the powers that be th This one sucked me in right from the start. As they stared to show these powers the powers that be that ran the first experiments wanted to bring them back to start new ones, causing an us against them reaction. Some of the Offspring become teacher's pets in the new regime while others are the rouge outcasts. The fight between the 2 factions really heats up centering on a group of 5 kids that were friends as children.
Two of them have this unexplained connection along with their abilities. As the battle wears on people are hurt and sacrifced and more of their powers are discovered. Can't wait for the next book to see what happens next!! View all 12 comments. May 31, Carolyn F. Amy is a recluse that sees Lucas in her dreams.
