Crescendo [book review]

Author: Becca Fitzpatrick

Synopsis: Nora should have known her life was far from perfect. Despite starting a relationship with her guardian angel, Patch (who, title aside, can be described as anything but angelic), and surviving an attempt on her life, things are not looking up. Patch is starting to pull away, and Nora can't figure out if it's for her best interest or if his interest has shifted to her arch-enemy Marcie Millar. Not to mention that Nora is haunted by images of her father and she becomes obsessed with finding out what really happened to him that night he left for Portland and never came home.

The farther Nora delves into the mystery of her father's death, the more she comes to question if her Nephilim blood line has something to do with it as well as why she seems to be in danger more than the average girl. Since Patch isn's answering her questions and seems to be standing in her way, she has to start finding the answers on her own. Relying too heavily on the fact that she has a guardian angel puts Nora again and again. But she can't really count on Patch, or is he hiding secrets darker than she can imagine? (via goodreads)

Rating: ★★★★★

For some reason I always have a story behind buying a book. This time I was at Books-A-Million looking around and I was getting ready to leave when I saw Crescendo. I blinked twice to make sure I wasn't just imagining (since it was days before it was suppose to be released.) Since it wasn't a figment of my imagination, I picked up the book and went straight to the cashier. The cashier tried to convince me to go to a football game. Uhmm... HELL to the no! I had better things to do. Can anyone guess what that was? Anywho Crescendo was beyond amazing! I loved everything about it, especially all the drama. I also didn't know it was possible to love Patch more; He's just perfect. Thank you Becca for another great book. Bring on Tempest, I'm ready for the thunderstorm (:

P.S. I seriously want the Hush, Hush series to be made into movies.

you know you love me

Crescendo... OH MY PATCH! Another work of genius by Becca Fitzpatrick. She is definately my new favorite author. I adore all the twists and turns and suspense and drama and spy work! AHH. And Patch, oh sweet, dark and sexy Patch. *sigh* Crescendo was a brilliant piece of work. I felt every emotion. I cried, laughed (especially at Vee's funny comments), I got angry, sad, happy. EVERYTHING. So this is something everyone in the world, well every female, should read. And then we can all fight over who gets Patch(: Now lets talk about the ending. What a cliffhanger! I am the type of person who always reads the ending when I get a book but with this one I've heard that there was a major cliffhanger so I tried really hard not to sneak a peek. Good thing I didn't! I reccommend you don't either. I can go on praising and praising and praising this book but you probably have better things to do (like go and read it!)
sealed with love
