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 Nor ...more

Tecla Yes she's still dumb. Probably dumber, more reckless and nosier than she was in the 1st book.
Ana No they are both excellent but the second one is so full of action suspense hatred... IT IS SO STRESS FULL !

EDIT: 16/9/2012
I edited this review just a bit. It's an old review but I think I could have worded some things a little better.


There were many Paranormal YA series where I couldn't possibly continue reading after the first book, but the Hush, Hush series is special. Despite the fact that yes, it is merely another abuse-glorifying panty-wetter, the unintentional hilarity just makes the books so much fun to read (in a twisted masochistic kinda way).

Crescendo is like a bright shining star of heav

Hey. Hey, Patch?

Yeah, you. Right there. Patch Cipriano? Hey there. Hi.

Listen.



Yeah.



I will not read any more of this garbage.

Spoilers are coming up, but mostly about the 'relationship' between Nora and Patch.

Also: pretend I'm reading this out loud to you, while I'm barely able to remember what they taught me in my anger management classes, and with a voice that's a few notches above normal volume. There's also some foaming at the mouth and a very, very strained and scary smile on my face.

*clears throat* Here goes...

Dear Nora,

How shall I put this... You are a stupid, stupid girl. The guy who loves you spends his time,

So I was at Borders the other day, and this book was on the shelf and underneath it read 'Patch is the bad boy Edward wishes he was'.
Of course, the idea of a forbidden-ish love story will always remind us of You-Know-What, but i'm seriously saying that this book is addictive enough for it to be a crime to compare it twilight. It has its own characters and instead of VAMPIRES, its about ANGELS and that makes me happy because angels are as cool, or even more so, than vampires. And yes I have a fet

Actually in love with this book !!!
Just read it, in a day.
I cannot describe how much i adore it though, i have to say its my favourite one i've ever read.
Got this off amazon yesterday, and i started reading and was hooked,
i had to go out that night, and slept out and all i could think about was the book, it was that capturing. I started reading it this morning and finished this afternoon.
A Billion times better than hush hush, the author did an amazing job,

Don’t ever leave me,” I told Patch, hooking a finger in the collar of his shirt and pulling him close.
You’re mine, Angel,” he murmured, brushing the words across my jawbone as I arched my neck higher, inviting him to kiss everywhere. “You have me forever.”



“Being with you never felt wrong. It's the one thing I did right. You're the one thing I did right.”


“I love you, Nora. Whatever happens, promise me you'll remember that. I don't care why you came into my life, only that you did. I

This book is a classic example of a horrible imitation of Twilight, Evermore and City of Bones .

Add some cliches, one-dimensional hot guy, annoying, whiny, suicidal, boring, petty, clingy, stalkerish, slutty, stupid female heroine Nora Grey aka The New Bella Swan , with a pinch of Anti-Feminism and damn add that gorgeou

Sometimes, if you're really lucky, a book will teach you a lesson or give you something valuable you can carry with you through your entire life. Crescendo gave me an unexpected gift although lesson might be too generous a term. It's a sort of 'I've been through this so that can't possibly be as bad.' I am no longer afraid of childbirth (or other really painful experiences but specifically childbirth) because I know that the pain of labor does not usually add up to the amount of hours I spent wi ...more
