WHEN SILENCE IS ALL THAT’S LEFT, CAN THE TRUTH FINALLY BE HEARD?
Nora Grey can’t remember the past five months of her life. After the initial shock of waking up in a cemetery and being told that she has been missing for weeks – with no one knowing where she was or who she was with – she tried to get her life back on track. Go to school, hang out with her best friend, Vee, and dodge mom’s creepy new boyfriend.
But there is this voice in the back of her head, an idea that she can almost reach out and touch. Visions of angel wings and unearthly creatures that have nothing to do with the life she knows.
And this unshakable feeling that a part of her is missing.
Then Nora crosses paths with a sexy stranger, whom she feels a mesmerizing connection to. He seems to hold all the answers…and her heart. Every minute she spends with him grows more and more intense until she realizes she could be falling in love. Again.
Oh my goodness Nora has amnesia and can’t remember her hunky fallen angel boyfriend, Patch. Or anything else from the past five months or so. Whatever will she do?
Yep, that’s about it. I’m telling you, this series is not meant to spark intellectual discussion and debate. It is purely about the entertainment value and it delivers.
Keep in mind that it is Young Adult so while there is sexual tension, there is no sex. Although, there is one more book in the series so we can only hope… and pretend that the main characters are of legal age because if we don’t… ew.
I was going to save this for the last review, but I guess I can go ahead and mention it now. Dear Young Adult Girls, please don’t forget that this is fiction. No matter who you are, that boy who has other than noble intentions is NOT an angel, fallen angel, nephilim, sparkly vampire, totally hot werewolf, king of France or yummy alien. In the interest of protecting your oh so fragile feelings, maybe you should keep your expectations on the more realistic side or you may never get a second date, ever. And if a boy offers to show you his wings, dump him, call a cab and go home. That’s all.
The Hush, Hush series is a quick and entertaining read. As I have pointed out before, it’s fun to relive the drama of high school without actually having to relive the drama of high school. All the hot angels- an added bonus.
