Summary: (from goodreads) 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?
Hush Hush is based on a world where Fallen Angels and their half human children (Nephilim) are in a constant battle.
Nora is your average teen girl in high school. She goes through all of the normal high school drama and then some. The book starts out in the past, and I mean way past, as in 1565 France. We get a small taste of why the immortal Nephilim are so resentful of the fallen angels. Then we jump right into a present day classroom where Nora, her best friend Vee and the rest of the class are made to switch seats so that they are no longer lab partners and instead are forced to sit next to people that they don't know so well. Nora's new lab partner is Patch, Hotness incarnate. Can I just say that if I was not very happily married and Patch was real, not a fictional character, I’d totally stalk him! Oh, yeah, back to my review. Anyways, Patch is Dark and mysterious and not so nice at first.
Against her better judgment, Nora finds herself wanting to be with Patch but there are so many strange, and borderline scary, if not downright dangerous things happening to Nora. How is it that so much can possibly be going on with one normal teenage girl? She is normal right? (well, I’m not going to spoil it for you). Even weirder, how is it that Patch is always around, coincidence? You’ll have to read it to find out. WARNING: This book and so far the series in general, is very addictive and may cause wonderful dreams of dark and sexy angels. Did I just say that? Thank you Becca for making want to read about more than just Vampires and werewolves.
