For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch came along.

With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment.

But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure who to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.

For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life.

From what I had heard, this book was just another “insta-love” Twilight rip-off just with angels, which is why I immediately started to feel kinda “meh” about reading Hush, Hush, because as you will soon learn, I really dislike Twlight. (Disclaimer: I read it when it was a huge hit and didn’t like it then...not because it was “cool” to hate on it. Okay, I’m glad we got that cleared up.) I will admit that there are definitely similar aspect to both novels, but Hush, Hush is definitely able to stand on it’s own. I don’t even want to compare the two.

I feel like the way Nora feels about Patch throughout the book was extremely realistic. She found herself disliking him and thinking he was nothing short from an ass, but she also couldn’t help but feeling an attraction to him because of his good looks. As a girl, I know I for one have definitely been in a similar situation. As the story progressed she started to develop real feelings for him and by the end it was clear that they loved each other. Even Patch didn’t immediately fall in love with Nora, considering his whole plan from the beginning was to get close enough to kill her.

I also loved her best friend, Vee. I thought she was hilarious and found myself laughing out loud numerous times because of what she would say or do. Then there was the part of the book that dealt with Elliot, Jules and the mystery person who kept tormenting Nora. I was extremely skeptical of Elliot and Jules from the moment they were introduced, but what ended up happening with them was not at all what I had initially suspected. Becca Fitzpatrick had me second guessing myself and questioning things up until the ending, so for that she gets a thumbs up!

Basically, I absolutely loved this book! Once I started to read it all of my preconceptions started to dissolve and I just become 100% immersed into the entire story. I loved the entire backstory involving Patch and I definitely want to know so much more about that, so hopefully I’ll get that in the next three books.
