The much awaited sequel to Hush, Hush had a lot of twists and turns, so much happens it was unbelievably crazy.

Even though the events of the previous book ended with Nora gaining Patch as her own personal and seriously hot guardian angel, she still feels guilty that she cost Patch his only chance at being human. Jealously also rears it's ugly head as Nora witnesses Patch in the company of Marcie, Queen Bee & enemy #1 since childhood, more often than she would like and in suspect situations.

Throwing a spanner into the works is Scott, a old childhood friend who moves back into the neighborhood. No longer "Scotty-the-Potty" (yes, I kid you not) but "Scotty-the-Hottie", he seems to be the solution to Nora's present boy problems but Scott is quite a bit more than he seems with dark secrets of his own and may cause more problems than he solves.

If that wasn't enough Nora also receives a mysterious parcel with a clue linking her father's murder the year before to a hidden Nephil Blood Society and a long buried family secret that could change everything Nora thought she knew about herself. As the evidence is stacking up against a person Nora thought she could trust, she must find a way to find out the truth for herself before it's too late.

Once again Nora Grey is in peril and throughout this book, in one way or another, she is always in trouble. I often caught myself wishing someone would just kill Nora and be done with it, as her immaturity and stupid decisions that she makes in result of her pride more often than not land her in danger but then there would definitely be no story to read...

Surprisingly though, because of the pace of the book, I became quite taken with the story and I found myself turning page after page to see what would happen next. I didn't find this book predictable, which was great but then I was disappointed when it turned out the main plot wasn't that much different from the first book. The fact that it had new entertaining twists and tantalizing details popping up throughout the book as well as a shock ending is probably what saved it.

Looking forward to the third book in the series.
