Review: Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

Title: Hush, Hush
Author: Becca Fitzpatrick
Summary: Goodreads Synopsis Here
Source: Library
Buy: Amazon ~*~ Barnes & Noble



My Thoughts:

At first, I had trouble getting into this story. I found myself highly irritated at the start of Patch and Nora. Then during Teaser Tuesday I write out the line in the scene that was the turning point for me. It started to get better and better. I love a good love story and watch it develop over time. The many circumstances Patch and Nora are put in, or more like she’s in and then he shows up, slowly unfold the reasons why he’s there and what he is. When it is discovered as to what he is, the connections different people have come to the fore. Then the pace picks up quite a bit with action and fight scenes.

I have to make a comparison to Twilight when it comes to the rollercoaster incident. And can I say holy sexual tension batman! That scene when the two are alone in the kitchen. I think it’s one of the best I’ve read. I love it when authors write them well, and Becca Fitzpatrick delivers it like no other.

The mysteriousness of Patch, his obsession with Nora, the sexual tension (oh boy), the action… it all adds up to a pretty good read.



My Rating:

Very Good... Stay up late!

  1. I wasn't sure about reading this book because guardian angels and me don't go well together. I mean, they can see you ALL the time, but your review turned me around. Will have to bump this up my TBR list.

    BTW: I just realised your avatar/icon thingy is Ed Westwick! Too cool :)

  3. Oh man, your making it very hard for me to wait to read this one. I am anxiously waiting until I can get my hands on all three cause I have a feeling I am going to blow through these and not be able to stop!

  4. I agree that the sexual tension was the best part of the book - Becca Fitzpatrick did this very well and kitchen scene just sizzled.

  5. Sorry Angie! We both keep doing this to each other.

    TG: Yep, it's quite sizzling... I think I had to re-read that scene a couple times, I loved it so much.

  6. I liked this well enough but didn't love it. But I know tons of people adored it. I definitely thought the pace picked up at the end. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. I liked Patch once he stopped acting like a jerk.

  7. This book was a roller coaster, I agree with your comparison. I actually am not a fan of this book because I had a hard time understanding the intense connection and finding any real basis for it. I did however find a few things about this book that were entertaining but I didn't fall in love with it. I wanted to because I heard so much about it.
    Thank you for another honest review!
