Genre: Young Adult Fantasy, Paranormal Romance
Series: Hush, Hush, book 1
Rating: 3 out of 5
Recommend to Others?: No


Summary (via Goodreads):

Romance was not part of Nora Grey’s plan. She’s never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how hard her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch comes along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Patch draws Nora to him against her better judgment.

But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora’s not sure whom to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is and seems 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 she 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 Nora her life.


My Review:
Hush, Hush was an okay story. I was expecting more because I love stories involving fallen angels and such. It was an odd reading experience to be sure. I was completely engrossed in the story and read through it fairly quickly, but I didn’t enjoy what was happening.

Patch was frustrating and confusing. I get why he acted the way he did but I just don’t understand Nora’s attraction to him. His role in the mystery of the plot just didn’t add up.

Vee, Nora’s best friend, is not a really good friend in hindsight. I get for part of the story her actions are explained but overall she seem like a bad influence. For example (no spoiler, promise), Vee persuades Nora to go find out something and offers to make a distraction. What Vee decides to do as a distraction was in incredibly poor taste. I lost any respect for her.

Nora was the saving grace of this story. I like her character, her drive, her ingenuity. There’s a hidden strength inside her that blossoms in this story.

I don’t think I will continue this series.
