Hush Hush - Review



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.

My Thoughts


When I first read this book in 2010 I hated it. I thought it was overrated and boring. It also felt like most of the books that time, a Twilight feel. Maybe I'm the only one who feels that way. Now though, five years later when I'm missing books that have that Twilight feel, I enjoyed it. It had action and romance and a somewhat strong female lead. I didn't like how quickly Nora seemed to fall for Patch, even though she told herself to stay away she still let him be around her. He seemed so dark and yet she gave him a chance, that wasn't very smart of her. After all, he came with the intent to kill Nora. I can say that I did not connect with Nora at all and I really wanted to.

I also think the side characters could've been fleshed out more, to me they just felt flat and like they were only there to help further the plot. I like it in books when every character feels real. Like, most of Jennifer L Armentrout books. She knows how to truly make them feel real. I'd like to hope that as the series went on the side characters get there chance to grow as well. I do really miss books about Fallen Angels/Demons, there used to be a lot more now I feel they are fading away.

Now, this book isn't the best around, there are far better ones out there but it was enjoyable, I found it hard to put down even though it was very predictable and nothing really seemed original. If you haven't read this book yet and are looking for a quick read. I'd say give this a shot. 

This is a short review but I can say now that after so many years of hating this book, I'm now planning to read the rest of the series.


1) “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.” 

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

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

This was going to be a movie but I'm not sure what's going on with that, oh well.

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless. But no matter how hard he tries, he can never quite make that connection, and now his last girlfriend has moved on—she’s engaged. So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction. Book Breakdown I did not know this was coming! When I woke up on June 1st and saw an email from Amazon saying the author dropped a new book in this series... I lost it! I hones

Music Monday - Recent Plays

This fun meme is hosted over at Always Me   I listened to a lot of music over this past week because I've been on fall break. It's been pretty good minus all the tornadoes and bad weather, but today the high was only around 70! That's amazing for this part of Oklahoma.  The music I've been vibing to is darker sounding songs since it's so close to Halloween! This year my partner and I are gonna crave pumpkins that always and then I'm gonna go with a friend on a train ride. She said she's done it before and it's fun. I'm hoping she'd right!  But for now, to the songs! Sooooooo what did you think? Let me know below and have a great week! Stay safe, wear a mask, and happy reading!
