Review: Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

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?.


Nora is a good girl, trusted by her mother to be home alone a lot, gets good grades. Overall, she's every parent's dream. Her best friend, Vee, seemed to be the exact opposite. Obsessed with boys, a liar, seemed to humiliate/anger Nora often, and definitely had a flair for the dramatic. Vee was not exactly the kind of friend I'd want to have. When Nora forced to work with Patch, the mysterious new kid in school, she is weary of him and doesn't trust him at all. Patch was, at first, made to seem stalkerish... creepy. He knew exactly how to push all of Nora's buttons. I'll admit, he grew on me after a while. Even when he started to seem like a decent guy (to me), Nora still didn't trust him and even accused him of some rather horrible thing. While she knew there was something off about Patch, and she continued to think he was capable of these horrible things, she was trying hard to fight her strengthening attraction to him. I didn't quite get how she could seem to not like him so much, think he is capable of horrible things, and not trust him, all while starting to fall for him. Admittedly, though, I fell for Patch too! Even before Nora did. :) He started to seem less creepy and more hot and edgey. By the end, I was in love! There were some surprise twists in the story and there were parts that definitely had me laughing out loud.

Overall, I rate this book with 4 stars. I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone!
