Audiobook Review: Hush, Hush (Hush, Hush, #1). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Nora Grey is responsible and smart and not inclined to be reckless. Her first mistake was falling for Patch. Patch has made countless mistakes and has a past that could be called anything but harmless. The best thing he ever did was fall for Nora. After getting paired together in biology, all Nora wants to do is stay away from Patch, but he always seems to be two steps ahead of her. She can feel his eyes on her even when he is nowhere around. She feels him nearby even when she is alone in her bedroom. And when her attraction can be denied no longer, she learns the secret about who Patch is and what led him to her, as well as the dark path he is about to lead her down. Despite all the questions she has about his past, in the end, there may be only one question they can ask each other: How far are you willing to fall?

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 that Hush, Hush is in Pre-production as a movie starring Wolfgang Novogratz and Liana Liberato (see picture below).
