Book Review: Hush, hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

Goodreads Blurb:

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."

It was good.  I've read so many other books that involve angels and Heaven and Hell and that whole shebang.  So I suppose it took me a while to separate them in my mind.  Also, because as you've probably noticed, I'm in a bit of a review slump.  None of the books on my currently reading shelf in GR I actually am reading.  I finished all of those weeks ago.  Oops?

So anyway...  I thought the writer did an excellent job of separating Hush, hush from the rest of the angel books.  It has the same general idea (they all have to because it's such a well known concept) but she put a different spin on it.

The only thing I didn't like was the whole explanation part.  You know when a character becomes aware of the whole new world living alongside their own world?  I was really confused when it got to that part and didn't pick up on much at all which made the ending of the book particularly confusing.

Otherwise, I loved Nora and Patch's relationship.  It was so... real.  There wasn't really any insta-love (if there was, it was offset by Nora's suspicion of Patch).  I really don't have anything else.  We'll have to see how the series plays out before I can decide if I really love it or not!

“You smell good, too,” said Patch
"It’s called a shower.” I was staring straight ahead. When he didn’t answer, I turned sideways. “Soap. Shampoo. Hot water.”
"Naked. I know the drill.” 

“Say 'provoking' again. Your mouth looks provocative when you do.” 

“Keep in mind that people change, but the past doesn't.” 

“I don't go out with strangers," I said.
"Good thing I do. I'll pick you up at five.” 

“Hang on, did you just call me Angel?" I asked.
"If I did?"
"I don't like it."
He grinned. "It stays, Angel.” 

“All this time I've hated myself for it. I thought I'd given it up for nothing. But if I hadn't fallen, I wouldn't have met you.” 

“Call me Patch. I mean it. Call me.” 

“If you can't feel, why did you kiss me?"Patch traced a finger along my collarbone, then headed south stopping at my heart. I felt it pounding through my skin. "Because I feel it here, in my heart," he said quietly.”
