HUSH, HUSH
YYYY1/2


A Sacred Oath, A Fall from Grace, A forbidden love....


Since her father's murder Nora Grey has always felt that someone was watching over her. Little did she know....

Nora and Vee are friends practically attached at the hip, so it was no surprise that they were biology partners in school. Until one day when Coach Mcconaughy decides to "shake things up" and create a new seating chart thus placing Nora next to the transfer student, Patch. Nora cannot seem to feel comfortable around Patch, maybe it is the obsidian depths of his eyes or his oddly shaped tattoo, or even the fact that he seems to know everything about her? She knows that she should stay away from him, her attraction uncharacteristic of her but much to Nora's dismay she is inexorably drawn to him and the feeling is mutual.


Soon, events transpire and she finds herself in perilous situations, making her question her sanity and safety. Then a frightening incident hits too close to home and it is up to Nora to make sense of the mystery and trickery. But will her bravery be enough to save herself as she learns the truth about Patch and his dark past? Can she love someone who is so terrifyingly unpredictable or will it lead to her demise? Falling in love was never easy...


With HUSH, HUSH Becca Fitzpatrick went down an uncharted path to which she took chances, playing upon our fears and our desires with unexpected fervor. This story is unlike anything you have ever read before, dark and sexy, full of danger, excitement and suspense. Every word to be savored for it elicits the most wicked of emotions. I had to read it with all the lights on and yet begged for more when I was finished. I was held captive within it's pages, unwilling to let go.


HUSH, HUSH is a brilliantly crafted nail-biting suspense story, rich in romance that will enrapture audiences, teens and adults alike. A must read for 2009.

Really, you liked it? I thought the plot and suspense was good, but Nora bothered me - as a character she's just kind of lame...

Great review! I really enjoyed it too although Nora did get on my nerves at times. I love the cover and I look forward to the sequel!

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
