"A gripping chiller... Fitzpatrick regularly tweaks the tension, resulting in a fast-paced, exhilarating read. Nora's tempestuous relationship with prototypical bad boy Patch is genuinely, even unsettling seductive- fans of paranormal romance should be rapt." - Publishers Weekly
"A thrilling debut." --Kirkus Reviews
"Horror and romance fans who are weary of the werewolf (and vampire) next door will welcome this new take on the heart of darkness." --Booklist
""Hush, Hush" has great atmosphere, and had me wondering where in the world -- or out of the world -- this story could go. If the guys had been this dangerous and delicious when I was in high school, I would never have wanted to graduate! I see more fallen angel stories coming from this talented writer." -- Sandra Brown, bestselling author of "White Hot" and "Smoke Screen"

I enjoyed it. I was surprised to find it's pretty long page wise because I flew through it so quickly. It's definitely not perfect, but it's really entertaining for what it is, meaning it's heavily centered on the budding romance. If you're looking for really intensive and detailed world building and mythology, this series isn't going to have it. I really liked Patch's character because he doesn't become a different guy just because of Nora, he's not suddenly a sappy, diluted version of his former sarcastic bad boy self. Nora is the character I had a few issues with. Overall, I like her. She has a good heart and she's likable enough. But her naivete gets annoying, and she makes a few really stupid decisions. What 16 year old has a curfew of 10 pm in the summer? Nora's mother is annoying and rude (if my mother had asked my friend what his GPA was the first time she met him when I was 16, I would have flipped out). Her best friend is really funny, so she makes up for the mom, and she appears way more in the story. There is a lot of set up, therefore it takes a while for the plot to get moving, so I get the complaints about not enough happening, but I actually appreciate the author's attempt to not rush things, too. The romance along with the mystery that is Patch are the central focuses of the story. There's no love triangle (yet anyways). So if that's not your thing, but you like YA romance with a paranormal twist, this may be for you.
I will be reading the second book in this series, I'm intrigued by this one and want to see where everything goes.
Patch is dark, mysterious, and attractive. Nora has had to deal with her father being murdered, so she is very susceptible to unrealistic thoughts and believes she might be crazy. Read other, longer, 5 star reviews for more details or spoilers, but do not pass on this one if you like kind of bad boy that falls for good girl books where you enjoy the chase. This book is all cat and mouse and it's hard to pick the players. Go ahead and get the next one as well, but you'll be on Nora's end throughout parts wondering what the heck is going on and why.
I've mostly heard awful reviews for this book and because of that I almost never read it. Personally, I thought it was a pretty good book! I didn't think it was cheesy, or poorly written. It was a little slow moving for probably half of the book, but it still held my attention and I was totally hooked the entire time. Some stuff was a little predictable, but some stuff I totally didn't see coming and was pleasantly surprised by some of the events revealed near the end.
I had been reading a lot of romance novels lately and was so over books where the entire story-line is the love story between the two characters. Where the whole book is how they are thinking of each other, wanting to be with each other, and nothing else in between. I needed a story that was about more than just that. I loved how this book had a very slow, believable build-up to a romantic relationship and even then, it still isn't the fore-front of the entire story. It was a nice change.
I was not impressed with the audiobook, though. The lady's voice is beautiful and has real potential. Unfortunately, she just puts emphasis on the wrong words in the wrong places of sentences and I found myself trying to re-do the tone in my mind over and over again. I also hated how much of an air head she made Vee out to be and how Patch's voice always sounded bored. It made it hard to fall for him in the story. If she can get the tone of her characters under control and put the correct emphasis on words in the right places in sentences, then I think she'll be an amazing narrator! I didn't have a lot of time to read this myself and since I didn't like the narrator, I listened to other books in between trying to find time to read this one myself. While listening to other books, I was wishing I could be reading this one. My point being, that it was good enough that when I wasn't reading it, I was thinking about it and really wanting to read it to find out what was going on.
