series: Hush hush #2

rating: 4/5

publisher: Simon & Schuster

summary:   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. 


To plenty of people this was there least favorite book of the series but I really enjoyed it. Both Patch and Nora where having relationship problems and dealing with jealousy. I liked how real it was since everyone one goes through that even fallen angels. Again this there is New Moon references however i don’t believe Scott is supposed to be the next Jacob Black since Nora really didn’t know what to think.  

There is more drama in this book with Patch hanging out with Marie and then Nora finding there is a connection between the Grey’s and Millar’s. Another attempt on Nora’s life that wasn’t that foreseeing as in the first book and that was a huge beytral in the end. Talking about ends this one left off on a cliffhanger that was decent and did make me want to read the next book sooner than later. 

I still enjoyed this book and probably say one of my favorite of the series so far. Crescendo shows what can happen in a beginning relationship and enjoyed reading about the ups and downs. There seems to be more drama and more about secrets come out. 

Until next time Happy Reading.
