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.
I thought Hush, Hush was a great quick read. I mean, the story isn't anything ground-breaking...Handsome and mysterious male attracts unsure, yet curious female and love ensues. But I must admit, I am a sucker for those stories. Parts of it were pretty predictable, but there were still a few surprises thrown in that were of redeemable quality. It has suspense that kept you wondering who, what, and why.
I wouldn't necessarily say that this book was WOW! material. But it was definitely intruguing and entertaining. What strikes me as odd though, it apparently there is a sequel, Crescendo. Normally when I start reading a series, I can't stop until I have read them all. However, I'm quite content with how this one ended and I wasn't left with any gnawing questions that will drive me to read the next one. So I don't think I will right now. I may pick it up a little later on just to see how Patch and Nora are doing. But I'm okay with not knowing for now. I'm not quite sure how I feel about that...
I am rating "Hush, Hush":
