Hush, hush

Hush, HushHush, hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
borrowed from library
Summary from Goodreads:
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
 
My take:
I have mixed feelings on this one.  I really really like the premise of Hush, Hush --- but I just didn't feel like the execution was all that it could have been. I liked Patch, but he was just slightly too creepy - I get that he is a fallen angel and so not such a good guy. But I felt that it was just slightly off from what he should have been to be the male lead.   Nora was a bit more problematic because I had a hard time believing her reactions sometimes. As the heroine, I felt that she should be a little more believable. I don't want to give too many specifics for those who haven't read the book yet.  I think this book had so much promise, I'm just not quite sure it met that promise. Having said that, I will most likely read the next book because I am interested in where the story is going.

Comments

  1. The relationship between Nora and Patch really creeped me out -- probably a good indication that I should start the Twilight series (not that I had many plans to do so).

    Try Shiver for an alternate slant in the same genre...
