Author: Becca Fitzpatrick
Series: Hush Hush, Book Three of Four
Published By: Simon and Schuster Children's Publishing (Oct. 4, 2011)
Genre: YA Paranormal
My Rating: 3.5-4 Stars
The noise between Patch and Nora is gone. They've overcome the secrets riddled in Patch's dark past...bridged two irreconcilable worlds...faced heart-wrenching tests of betrayal, loyalty and trust...and all for a love that will transcend the boundary between heaven and earth. Armed with nothing but their absolute faith in one another, Patch and Nora enter a desperate fight to stop a villain who holds the power to shatter everything they've worked for—and their love—forever.
I am going to admit that I have had a hard time deciding on a rating for this book. I keep wavering between and 3 and a 4.
Why you ask?
I did really like this book, bad boy Patch is as great as ever, in fact he might have even been better in this book, we finally get to see a softer side of him and there are some pretty swoon worthy quotes in this book,
“Angel... I don't think you understand the lengths I would go to if it means keeping you here with me." Patch to Nora
“I missed you, Angel. Not one day went by that I didn't feel you missing from my life." Patch to Nora
“You're mine, Angel. And I'm yours. Nothing can change that.” Patch to Nora
“If I lose you, I lose everything” Patch to Nora
*sigh* Pretty fabulous right? Right? I mean this is Patch at his best. Those quotes are the reason I love him so much, yet, I just couldn't help but feel a little let down by this book.
I can't even name exactly what it was. Maybe it was the crazy amnesia thing going on at the beginning or maybe it was how Vee, (who I adore by the way, best friend ever) wasn't honest with Nora, or maybe it was her mom that just, I don't know, just seemed off in this book.
I don't know, like I said, something just didn't feel complete with this book. Of course, the crazy ending didn't help. Thank goodness there is another book coming out or I would have been seriously disappointed in the ending of this series. I felt like there was so much left unsaid and unexplained.
I am glad that we will get another book with Patch and Vee and Nora, they are great characters and I do love them, I just really really hope it is a great book. Something that will blow me away because to be honest, this one just didn't do it for me.
I wanted a swoon worthy ending that would have me thinking about it long after I was done reading it and this just wasn't it.
Come on Fitzpatrick, I know you can do better and I am looking forward to reading it in the next and final book in the series.
