Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch came along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment. But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure who to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and 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 Nora 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 her life.

I finished this book incredibly fast. I think it took me a total of 3 or so hours to read.
In a way, this book reminded me faintly of Twilight. The characters have similar characteristics. Nora was like Bella because she was the human girl who falls in love with a "cute and dreamy guy". Patch was the dangerous non-human "dreamy guy".
He was a slight stalker, but he was practically irresistible to the girls in his school.
I'm not trying to compare this book to Twilight, because, in my opinion, it is much better.
The characters were strong, the plot was amazing, and Becca Fitzpatrick is a wonderful author that you won't want to miss!

* I received this book from Simon and Schuster Publishing
