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 who have fallen -- and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost Nora her life.
Shhh! Listen to more in the Hush, Hush saga.

I sadly realized this book was a little young for me. The book is similiar to Fallen, which I have listened to as well. The reader is easy to listen to and keeps you in the book. Very good book.
I have a love/hate relationship with this book for one big reason: Why does Patch have to be such a jerk!? I mean, yeah I get that he has his reasons, but still. I’m growing tired of seeing YA characters falling for assholes. I also hate the fact even with him being such a jerk, I still fell for him just like Nora. I don’t know what it is that makes him so damn attractive. Really, it was quite frustrating! Can you say STALKER? I think the police would have been called by chapter 4 if I was Nora.
My initial reaction to Hush, Hush, was that it was going to be just like Twilight. Initial bio scene anyone? I was pleasantly surprised to find that the plot was quite original. It really picked up toward the end leaving me wanting more! I was super intrigued by Patch and his past. He’s such a mysterious character. At first I hated the dynamic between Nora and Patch, but Fitzpatrick’s writing quickly changed that. She wrote some super sexy and cute moments between the two. In the end, I fell for the sexy jerk of a fallen angel.
I’ll be honest that there were one or two parts I found VERY predictable. Other than that, this was a great listen and I will definitely be continuing the series! On another note: Caitlin Greer is a great narrator.
As a recent connoisseur of young adult fiction, mainly the para romance type, this book was recommended to me. As I am a 30 something mom of two, the only way to "read" a book is to have one read to me. I found the narrator distracting, and sometimes horrible. At one point she had to demonstrate an Irish accent that was just this side off laughable. With that being said, I thought the story itself was pretty good, although I was having a hard time relating to the main character at times, I will chalk this up to the fact that I am not 15 anymore. I would recommend this book to others, but probably not the audio version.
This was one of the worst examples of YA perpetuating rape-culture crap I've seen in a while. The heroine was weak and dumb, and all of her decisions were idiotic. The surrounding characters were unsupportive, creepy and/or boundary-crossing, including the supposed best friend. The main love-interest was a wannabe rapist/murderer- but it's ok cause he's hot. How is this the message that we're sending kids in freaking 2016. It makes me want to cry.
Recommended to people who like characters who are TSTL. Annoying "heroine" and "hero." Twilight rip off with an even worse plot. How is this horsesh*t so popular???

Every word she said detracted from the book. I kept finding myself cringe each time she would talk. 8 hours of cringing. Just because the genre is young adult doesn't mean it needs to be read in an exaggerated pre-teen voice. I found myself rolling my eyes throughout the story especially during the climax which is supposed to be the best part.
I wish I could have given the performance negative stars. I think in the 90 or so books I have gotten from Audible this is the first one I couldn't stand. DRIBBLE! Performance and all!
I expect that someday I will try another book in the series. However, this book did not leave me desperately wanting more.
The ending was rather predictable, especially if you've read "Twilight."
I think she forced the male voices a little too much. I know it's hard for a female to do male voices, but she seemed to try too hard.
It did not inspire me to do anything except move on to something else.
I was curious about this book because of a little bit of hype that seems to follow it. I've seen my students (young adult, middle school) reading it and wanted to know more. In the past, this reaction has served me well. That's how I got hooked on reading "Harry Potter," and "Twilight". However, I did not have anywhere close to a similar reaction with "Hush, Hush."
Tell us about yourself!I have been reading constantly threw audio books sense a verry small age and have never lost the love of them.
Yes! This book takes the supernatural and gives it a make over. if you are tired of the same old than try this. Angels, sexy guys and thrills what more is there to ask for?
No other compares. i have read many books and while i am not saying this is the best written i am saying that is unique. it gives a new face to the angel side of things that has been getting so big the last couple of years. some did not review this kindly but i like it and can not wait to read the next one.
it was believable. she made voices easy to recognize and she brought the story to life. i love audio books!
the action and romance seens are vivid and come to life off the pages. my heart was racing and i might av even squeed once. lol!
give this a try it is a good on the edge of your seat read. is she the best author no but she is amazing at capturing a new angle and if you read a lot you can appreciate how rarely that comes along. just read it!
This author captivates you from page one. Great book for teen reads.
Patch...his mystery that surrounds him is intriging
The flow was nice
