Becca Fitzpatrick: Hush, Hush

I was intrigued by the cover art for Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick, so I entered a contest to win it. I was beyond excited to win! The novel was just as intriguing as its cover.

Nora Grey has a new Biology partner, and she's not too thrilled about it. Patch is your typical dark, sexy, bad boy--the last person in the world that Nora thought she would be attracted to. But she can't get him out of her head. Literally.

Their first assignment is simply to get to know each other, but Nora soon finds that Patch knows A LOT about her and isn't willing to offer up a lot of details about himself.

To make matters worse, Patch's appearance in her life seems to coincide with the appearance of a ski-mask-wearing stalker that Nora can't shake, an attack on her best friend Vee, hallucinations, and voices in her head.

Nora decides to put her journalistic skills--she works for the school's eZine--to work in an effort to learn more about the mysterious Patch.

It isn't long before she discovers Patch's secret--he's a fallen angel who wants to be human. And it may cost Nora her life.

I loved everything about this book and Becca Fitzpatrick's writing style.

Patch, despite the fact that he will garner far too many comparisons to Twilight's Edward for being somewhat manipulative and stalker-like, is a likable character; a true hero. He's perfectly content to let Nora be Nora--strong-willed and independent; a smart, realistic heroine.

Hush, Hush captured my attention from the first page and wouldn't let me go until the climactic conclusion.
