The sequel was much looked forward too for a reason and didn't disappoint. It has a good story line that Nora unraveled as I read it. I did not guess who the bad guy was so it was a good plot if I could be surprised at the end.

Patch and Nora are in a rough patch in their relationship so of course the best friend comes in big. I did not want Nora and Patch fighting all the time but I really enjoy Vee’s dialogue with her pick me ups for Nora. The mean girl, Marcie, always makes fun of Vee for being fat but Vee just really enjoys food and as she says she is just ‘big boned.’

Patch sets up Vee with his best friend Rixon, a very hot fallen angel who is a great kisser. So Nora is naturally a little jealous because she isn’t having that with Patch. So much is so going on in her life and now someone wants her to find out who killed her father. I liked the way the book started 14 months before with her father murder so it starts the story off with a literal bang.

I need the next book to come out now because the ending was such a major cliffhanger it made me mad I have to wait. The next book probably will pick up right from the ending scene or something close to it.

The sequel to the New York Times Best selling phenomenon, Hush, Hush!

Nora should have know her life was far from perfect. Despite starting a relationship with her guardian angel, Patch (who, title aside, can be described 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't 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 at risk again and again. But can she really count on Patch or is he hiding secrets darker than she can even imagine?

Favorite Quote:
“I’m going to grab a cheeseburger,” I told Patch. “Want anything?”
“Nothing on the menu.”
I smiled. “Why, Patch, are you flirting with me?”
