Crescendo (#2 in Hush, Hush Series) by Becca Fitzpatrick

Yes!! I have had this one sitting on my shelf for over a year now! I read the first in Becca Fitzpatrick's Hush, Hush Series back in December of 2011, and I ended up buying the second book Crescendo almost immediately thereafter.  And believe me, when I say I've been wanting to read this book, since buying it!! However, due to requests, blog tours, and other obligations I either haven't had the time or forgot every time I did have the chance!

But now I finally have!! :)

And it was awesome!

From Goodreads:

Crescendo (Hush, Hush, #2)
Nora Grey's life is still far from perfect. Surviving an attempt on her life wasn't pleasant, but at least she got a guardian angel out of it. A mysterious, magnetic, gorgeous guardian angel. But despite his role in her life, Patch has been acting anything but angelic. He's more elusive than ever (if that's possible) and what's worse, he seems to be spending time with Nora's archenemy, Marcie Millar.

Nora would have hardly noticed Scott Parnell, an old family friend who has moved back to town, if Patch hadn't been acting so distant. Even with Scott's totally infuriating attitude, Nora finds herself drawn to him - despite her lingering feelings that he is hiding something.

If that weren't enough, Nora is haunted by images of her murdered father, and comes to question whether her Nephilim bloodline has anything to do with his death. Desperate to figure out what happened, she puts herself in increasingly dangerous situations to get the answer. But maybe some things are better left buried, because the truth could destroy everything - and everyone - she trusts.

My Thoughts:

Wow! This book was so unbelievably gripping!! It's over 400 pages, and I read in less than two days! That rarely happens!! A book has to be really good for me to do that!

I was sad that Nora and Patch had a rough patch (ha-ha) in this one, but overall I found this story so intriguing!  It has me hooked because I want to keep finding out more and more!

I was a bit scared there for a moment, because Patch came off as a total jack-ass in this one!  There were moments where I was like "NO!!!!!!!! It can't be!!!!", but luckily, because I've heard about somewhat what the next two in the series are like, I wasn't too worried!! :)

Overall rating:
Becca Fitzpatrick has created a world I don't want to leave! While dark and dangerous, her characters are so unbelievably intriguing!  While, I will admit, Patch, is an awful name for a hot character, you can't help but fall for this guy! I mean, seriously, tall, dark, AND dangerous...that just screams "Ooh-La-La" to me!! ;)

I highly recommend this one to paranormal young adult readers! This is one series you don't want to miss!

If you haven't read the first in the series Hush, Hush (Barnes and Noble), then do it!!! :)

Thanks everyone! And talk to you next time! :)
