HUSH HUSH: is a steamy full length New Adult & College Romance Novel by new to me author Lucia Franco.

5+++++ STARS!! 2019 FAVOURITE BOOK!!
This book is undeniably unputdownable and unique in every sense. This is not just your ordinary romance. It's insanely addictive and extremely intense.

This isn’t going to be everyone’s cup of tea. And that’s ok too! But as you can see I loved it!!

STOP THE BUS!! HOLY SHIT THIS WAS HOT!!🔥🔥This is going to be one of the hardest reviews I've ever had

Hush, Hush gave us a seductive, forbidden world and a taste of what’s it’s like to have everything your heart's desire and still at the same time have nothing at all. Money, power, sex, desire, betrayal, you name it…. And this story had it.

Twenty one year old Aubrey is your average College girl. She has a best friend who adores her, a grandmother who would give her the shirt off her back, and she’s working two jobs to help support herself and her grandmother. Thinking about her future and wha

Now this is the book, the kind that will blow your mind even if it at times you are perturbed with what you are reading. Believe the hype, Hush Hush was sensationally scandalous and fanbloodytastic!

"Yeah. I'm an angel with black wings born with no morals or modesty, and legs for days that spread like holy water."

I will remain vague because as a reader you will want to fully experience the magic and debauchery that Lucia Franco has managed to weave. Because if you enjoy the fo

I must say that I really enjoyed this book and the story. The sexual tension was good and the scenes were pretty hot. James is smoldering sexy and he knows how to control and command a scene without making it feel wrong or humiliating. The writing has a lot of sass and surprisingly a lot of heart. There is really good development. There are really nice secondary characters as well.

I really only have two complaints about this book. Aubrey... I actually wasn't all that fond of her, I didn

I absolutely LOVED this book. Yep, that's right. My morals actually couldn't give a damn less about some of the more over the line elements. Lucia Franco hit this one right on the head. Having a background with Manhattan and the powerful there, I was almost suspicious how she nailed the way a certain echelon of the city truly does work.

But enough about that - I'm too all consumed by James Riviera, the sexiest Silver Fox I've ever come across! I loved how commanding he was, I loved how suave he

Ok the blurb doesn’t give much and I went in anyway.
This is a HORRIBLE book.
A PORN.

The h and her friend (a big SLUT) are basically the type of girls who I absolutely hate. They take DRUGS, then like f*cking random guys in clubs, flirting and teasing guys. Definitely not my type of heroine.

So, this review took me much longer than expected. Complete, utter disappointment isn’t accurate enough to describe my thoughts or feelings on this. Hush, Hush is horrendous to read. Sex workers are shamed and criticised; drugs are abused to cope with sexual situations that border sexual assault, with the acts glamourised to somehow excuse everyone’s behaviours; everyone’s emotions are belittled over and over; constant lies and secrets infiltrate every scenario because the characters are too chi

This story was so wrong, and so good, I didn’t stop to think about it.
The female character was so strong and done so filthy things, and I loved her.
Life isn’t black and white.
It’s totally worth the reading.

Oh boy! This book completely wrecked me, and I wish I could give it more than 5 stars. It was absolutely nothing liking I was expecting, yet it was everything I never knew I needed. While I felt it was slightly slow to get going, once it did, there was no stopping. I stayed up until 2am this morning to finish it because I simply couldn’t tear my eyes away.
Aubrey and Natalie were best friend goals, and I adored them both; they bounced off each other so effortlessly.

Welp, this book had me conflicted, and won’t be for everyone...not going to sugar coat it! I had the hardest time coming up with a rating! This is my first ever dose of Lucia Franco’s words, and assuredly it won’t be my last! I went into this story completely blind, not having read anything on it. This seductive, forbidden tale was intense, and as steamy as they get! It was very well written, with prose on point, and intriguing —in a train wreck sort of way.

"Money can buy a lot of things, but it can't buy moments, and those are priceless."

Hush Hush was my first book by Lucia Franco and wow, what a pleasant surprise! This book is full of erotic encounters, some funny, some steamy hot, some you don't want to read in public. I was captured and intruiged from the first page to the last.

"Life is a collection of moments"

The story is well paced with interesting developments. However some of them were quite predictable which somehow muffled my exc

What a heart wrenching ride!

5⭐

It is true that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, but Lucia tested my limits with this book..in a good way. I must admit at first it was touch, but I pulled up my big girl panties and trusted Lucia. She did not disappoint. I love James so much! Of course I didn’t approve of things both he and Aub did, but these kinds of books are the reason I’m a reader. If I wanted something fluffy and safe then I never would have agreed to this book, but I knew any story

Lucia is such an exceptional writer! The stories she weaves blow me away. She always wow’s me with every page! Unfortunately I wasn’t a huge fan of hush hush! I feel so guilty for saying that because Lucia worked so hard on this story.( she puts her heart and soul in her writing) I like the idea of the story because of the age gap (big fan of those) but I wasn’t a fan of the h so much...I always try to relate to them and I couldn’t with her. I didn’t understand her actions or decisions. I felt l ...more

This dude is a 50 y/o billionaire in an open marriage because his wife is sexually incompatible with him. Uses a “service” of prostitutes to get his rocks off which *ding ding* pairs him up with his daughters best friend. BAHAHA. Telling me he’s hotter than David beckham, fuck offfff 🤣.

She’s a college grad, a total drug user, who works as an escort and has a boyfriend. She’s also fucking other high-falutin clients. Cheating on her honest to god lovely bf. And her “best friend” who may I remind y

Okay here we go. So I have sat and thought about this review a lot and what I wanted to say.

First let me start by saying I love Lucia Franco, I think she is an amazing author. I really enjoy her other books.

Now...I am going to be 100% honest I didn't love this one. Eek! I really REALLY hate saying that but this one just wasn't my cup of tea. The writing was top notch like always! But as a reader I went into this story completely blind not know what to expect at all. Without spoiling Hush, Hush I

“Sex is how you connect with another person. It’s where you see their vulnerabilities and insecurities, where you want to make them forget everything but remind them you’re there for them. When you’re both into each other and understand each other’s minds, it’s a deeper connection. It’s how intimacy grow’s.”

Hush, Hush by Lucia Franco is a standalone novel. A forbidden age gap romance. I’m a huge fan of the Off Balance series and couldn’t wait to get my hands on this.

Holy Mother of all Hotness!! this book pushed me out of my comfort zone since page one, but boy was it worth it!! This was my very first book from this author, but I will definitely need to keep an eye out on her books because she just pushed me and opened my mind to things that are worth reading!.

„The universe is cruel for putting us together, but I don’t feel bad because what I feel when I’m with you is what I’ve been wanting all along, I just never knew it until I met you.”


Just when you think you’ve read it all, Lucia Franco decides to prove you wrong. Hush Hush is an unique book, a outstanding story about love conquering all the obstacles. It’s the balance between the heart and the mind. It’s constant jumping between common sense and desires. This read pushes all the boundaries and ex
