Release Date: October 13, 2009
Age Level: Young Adult
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I was gripped from the first couple of pages, and that is so rare for me... I did not want to put this book down! I can't believe I didn't read this sooner... I'm not sure why I was so hesitant to pick this up. I'm not usually excited about books about angels... I can't pin point why exactly, I guess they just don't do it for me. Until NOW! I enjoyed every minute of this book.
Hush, Hush is well written with great pacing and characterization. I really liked Nora, and Patch is just yummy! Their characters immediately drew me in and I was hooked. I have to say that I wanted to smack Vee (Nora's BFF) at times, she drove me nuts. I may have a little crush on Patch. Let's see... he's hot, a bad boy, mysterious, and cocky. What's not to love? The plot was great as well, but Nora and Patch made the book for me. Here's some quotes that give you an idea of what I'm talking about:
"You smell good, too,” said Patch
It’s called a shower.” I was staring straight ahead. When he didn’t answer, I turned sideways.
“Soap. Shampoo. Hot water.”
"Naked. I know the drill."
"Say 'provoking' again. Your mouth looks provocative when you do."
"I don't go out with strangers," I said.I can't wait to read the next book of the series, Crescendo, and Silence when it comes out this fall! Oh, and I LOVE all the covers, I think they're gorgeous...
"Good thing I do. I'll pick you up at five."
I'm definitely a fan of this series!
