Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Fallen Angels, Nephilim, and high school girls!
The following ratings are out of 5:
World building: 🌎🌍🌏🌎🌏
Character development: ☺️😟😍😁🥰
The heroine: Nora Grey – a sophomore in high school, her father died about a year ago and she lives at a farmhouse with her mother. Nora works for the schools eZine (online magazine). Her best friend is named Vee and they share some kind of connection and have ever since they were kids.
The Hero(s): Patch Cipriano – a new student. He is dark and broody and seems extremely dangerous. He also seems to show up wherever Nora is. He has secrets and is loathe to give up any information about himself.
The Story: Nora thinks Patch is dangerous but can’t seem to stop thinking about him. She finds herself chosen to be his partner in their biology class and he seems to know just about everything about her but won’t tell her anything about himself.
This was an odd one. So many crazy things happened. One or more people seemed to be out to get Nora and she doesn’t know if one of them is Patch. Also Nora experienced certain things that happened that she wasn’t sure were real or not, like when she ran into an animal or possibly a person with her car, then all the sudden everything was ok and noting was wrong with her car.
This was obviously a young adult book, and wasn’t too steamy, but I liked the romance between Patch and Nora. Though I though Nora was too naïve and her friend Vee was a bit crazy. I wasn’t quite sure why Nora didn’t push back on Vee a few times when she was talking crazy. Overall I liked the story and plan to listen to the rest of the series.
As for the narration, it was fine and Caitlin Greer did a good job. However, I tend to dislike romance audiobooks without dual narration so I will not give this 5 points for narration. Also, just as an added FYI, I see on IMDB.com that Hush, Hush is in Pre-production as a movie starring Wolfgang Novogratz and Liana Liberato (see picture below).
