Hush Hush Series

Guys, I am back. This review has been long overdue. So let’s get right into it.

Synopsis

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 Take

I absolutely hated the first book. I seriously couldn’t accept the character of Patch. We do not have any background into him and we are supposed to believe that he is head over heels in love with Nora. Some of the things that he does seriously borders on a stalker. And I really don’t understand how Nora can fall for such a guy. I know I wouldn’t. Some of the scenes with both of them doesn’t even make sense. And Nora’s mother is conveniently absent throughout.

If you can get past the first book, then you may start enjoying the series. The second book was a lot better. By the end of first book, I just started accepting Patch and Nora’s relationship. Once this happens, then the books start making a lot more sense. Their relationship is beautifully told in the later books.

The way Patch accepts Nora with all her flaws is very endearing. Nora, on the other hand, has big trust issues which I found a bit annoying at times. She justifies everything that she does but when someone else does the same thing she just cannot accept it. I loved the third book where Nora loses her memory. I was rooting for her to remember about Patch. Their love starts making a lot more sense by this time. And we want them to get together no matter what happens.

The fourth book was again kind of ok. The book was kind of stretched out I think. If it was Patch’s character that I hated in the first book, then it is Nora’s character that I hated in the last book. By the last book I started loving Patch’s character. If we had more insight into Patch, even the first book might have turned out good. Come to think of it, I really think Patch could have had a better nickname than that. Jev sounds so much better.

Anyways, over all the series was good. If you can get past the first book, I would definitely recommend them for a one time read. But I don’t think I will be rereading these.

My Rating

My Rating for the whole series is 3.5⭐. If the first book was written like the others, then I might have them a 4⭐.
