For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her...until Patch comes along.
With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn 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 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 far more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.
For Nora 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 her life.

Wow... This book was intense. I truly am in love with the book, specifically Patch. Ms. Fitzpatrick does a wonderful job at writing a angel based YA novel with a unique twist in this book. After reading an angel book that left me feeling disappointed, I was leery to start reading this book. I am definitely glad I decided to read it though! The suspence and the constant wonder of who's the bad guy was really exciting. The writing made this book flow and did not seem cliche at all. The plot was so thrilling and easily intriguing that I did not want to stop reading! I cannot wait to start the next book!

The characters were AH-MAZING! Nora was a great main character and made the story very enjoyable to read. The only criticism I have about her is that she had rapid mood changes when it came to love. One minute she was in love with Patch, then she's get freaked out about him. After a while I wanted to scream at her to just stay away from him. But that would mean less Patch... Patch, oh how I loved him. I do see where Nora was coming from with the fear and all, but he is such a funny, amazing character that I would absolutely forgive him. His dialogue made this book for me. His witty comebacks and humor made me laugh out loud. Patch kept the tone light when scary things were on the way.

The ending of Hush, Hush was pretty great too! It was a nice conclusion to this novel, yet still left some questions for the next book. I really want to read more of Nora and Patch, so I plan to read the sequel very soon. I cannot wait to find out all the secrets behind Patch and all the details of who Nora and Patch really are.  

My Favorite Part: No doubt Patch's humor! Oh my, he made my heart skip a beat and made me laugh at the same time!

Do I recommend this book? Yes, I loved it and think it's super amazing so you should go buy it RIGHT NOW!!
Will I be reading the sequel? Of course! What kind of question is that! Did you read my review? 

Thanks for reading! I'm really excited to hear what you thought of this books!
