(Description source: Back of book cover)



Romance was not part of Nora Grey's plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how hard her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch comes along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Patch draws Nora 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 seems 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 way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.

For she 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 Nora her life.


Hush, Hush is a hilariously captivating read full of sly innuendos delivered by an incredibly sexy guy, and full of mystery that will leave you guessing as to what will happen next. 

Nora is a nice girl just trying to get through school with good grades and spend time with her best friend Vee, but when Patch comes along, he's intent on stirring up Nora's life. He's sexy, arrogant and laced with danger, and in Nora's words: Patch wasn't the kind of guy mothers smiled on. He was the kind of guy they changed the house locks for.” Patch is beyond mysterious and Nora would love to find out whatever his hidden agenda is.

Vee is so, so, so funny, some of the lines she delivers with have you almost in hysterics and her relation with Nora is so realistic and so well depicted, they are exactly what best friends should be.

Hush, Hush is incredibly original in both story line and character motives. There are plenty of dark, terrifying scenes that will leave you wide-eyed. the darkness and intrigue in this novel is perfectly balanced by moments that sexy as hell, damn funny or full of amazing dialogue that just never feels forced what-so-ever.

This book had me addicted from the get-go! With compelling banter and twisting plots that are forever thickening, this book contains edge-of-your-seat material and will have you remembering what happens for a long while after you've turned the last page and definitely wanting to relive so many of the different moments all throughout!

“Before I forget, here's your homework. Where do you want me to put it?"

She pointed at the trash can. "Right there would be fine.” 

I rate Hush Hush Five out of Five!
