I went along with the hype over this book (although a little too late). As usual I’m very skeptical when it comes to the hype because of the books I read with so many gushing reviews, I’ve been disappointed about three (or more) times. Well, the good news is, I have no regrets about Hush Hush. It was absolutely AMAZING and I’m wondering why I waited so long to read this one. At first I did not like Patch. In fact I was with Nora in this one. He’s horribly arrogant, crude, and so unbelievably annoying. Yet you just can’t help but fall for his irresistible charm as Nora did. I absolutely LOVED the tension between Nora and Patch. It was so well done you could almost feel and see the sparks fly between them. They were so perfect for each other there’s no words to describe them when they’re together. The plot was excellent! there was so much suspense and thrill I couldn’t put this book down. The pace was even and there was no rut nothing to make this pace stray from the main plot. The terrifying encounters Nora comes up against is well described and it’s scary enough to put the reader on edge. The mystery part of the book was also well done, and I was always second guessing Patch and his motives. I’d have to say I was surprised at Elliot. I’d have to say I was blindsided by his actual personality and I was not expecting that 360 change! the change isn’t subtle but it’s still creepy to read as Elliot changes. The characters overall were great to read. The end scene was dramatic and was a great page turner. There was a lot of action and things were discovered and revealed but there’s also a lot of questions too and I’m really looking forward to reading the next one! This is one book where I am glad I listened to all the hype. I absolutely enjoyed this one. Great storyline, with the two main characters being so irresistible you just can’t stop reading until you’re finished. Strongly recommended for YA readers!
