Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick, Review and Trailer

I've talked about Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick a lot - I know - and realized I hadn't posted my review. So here it is, with a wonderful trailer to whet your appetite. Maybe I'll start it again this evening... and how long do I now have to wait for the sequel? Really?

Nora Grey, a straight A student, is disconcerted one day when her teacher rearranges the class and she ends up paired with a new student – a dark, brooding, dangerous looking but very good looking new student. Not usually interested in boys she’s alarmed at her attraction and doesn’t know whether to draw closer or to run. Nora is not a reckless girl and she knows she should keep away but Patch is always there, uncompromising, disturbing, and very, very alluring.

Nora thinks she’s being followed. Then her room is ransacked. Leading her to think about Patch, about whether he is who he claims to be. Why does he seem to be everywhere she is? Why does he know so much about her? And should she trust Elliot? And it turns out the answers are incredibly disturbing and difficult to deal with, especially if you’ve begun to fall in love. Nora finds herself in the middle of an age-old fight between fallen angels and the Nephilim (half-human, half angel). And the question becomes: what are they willing to do for love?

I was given this book and told to put down everything else for it. It had no cover, no blurb and I was enjoying the book I was reading. But I picked up Hush, Hush one evening and sat late into the night to finish it. It was that good. It’s an intoxicating, seductive, compulsive, and dangerous story that encompasses forbidden love, humor, mystery, romance, and a plot twist at every turn. Don’t miss it.

This book is an absolute page-turner. Angela handed it over to me and I consumed it in half-a-day. Exciting, romantic, and a bit thrilling. The best thing is that you have NO IDEA what is going on until the end!

P.S. Angela I left my first comment! You know who this is : )

Can't believe you finally left me a message. Thank you! And isn't the cover spectacular?

This sounds creepy/intense. Definitely a different spin on the paranormal romance. I can't wait to read it.
