This novel is the first installation of my favourite series. Fitzpatrick has an amazingly unique writing style and really captures the moment of what she wants a person to see while reading. I absolutely love the characters themselves, like Nora; she’s smart, witty, funny and seems like someone I could know in real life. I love reading about the change of relationship between the characters of Nora and Patch and learning more about where they both come from. I would definitely recommend reading this novel to anyone that has an interest in romantic supernatural novels.

Nora wakes up in a cemetery not knowing how or why she ended up there, so also with no memory of the last five months. She learns that she's been missing for months with no leads on who took her. As she struggles to get back to normal she notices the people around her are lying to "protect" her. But when she meets a stranger who Nora feels isn't really a stranger things start to click and she slowly gets her memory back and she realizes that there's so much more happening than she thought.
This is the third novel in the hush hush series and like the first two, Nora finds herself in dangerous situations. With what's brewing and secrets being kept from her, Nora doesn't know who to trust anymore. She's determined to make her kidnapper pay no matter who he is. As she struggles to keep a normal life she learns that not everyone is who they say they are, even the people closest to her. Rating 5 out of 5 stars.

This book is definitely not as good as the first one. Or maybe that is just my opinion as I am a person who just really likes introductions to series and the starting ideas. I am actually quite excited for my English class as we have to do a culminating project on a book trailer, and this book is one of the options! But I guess this author's books are overall, okay. I just finished one of her newer ones called "Black Ice" and it is pretty good! I also seem to like books more if the female protagonist(s) are super stubborn. For some reason, Nora seems a little less appealing here. But I guess the overall rating I would give to this series would be a good, maximum of a great! 4/5 stars

So frustrating having her memory gone. I mean, it was almost like reading the first book again except with the full and complete potential for more. I did like how Scott is more likable now that he doesn't have to hide from her, and I'm not sure how Marcie is going to develop in the next book (will she even be there? Will she be an influential character?). And what about Vee and Nora's mom? Will they be brought to light on the dark happenings surrounding them? I'm kind of excited and maybe a little relieved to have the next book be the last. Not sure how much more of this I can take

The twists and turns are remarkable. This series is #1 on my list! MUST READ!!!

I'm impressed by the number of twists that I hadn't anticipated in this book. Definitely kept me guessing and in anticipation. Stayed up too late because I was compelled to finish it before sleeping, but it was worth the extra fatigue the next day! Looking forward to the finale.

loved it, this book and Crescendo, Hush, Hush, they are really good books that you cannot keep away from you, or put it down. I really enjoy it, I recommended. But the Finale I really did quite like it, I mean the author loose it a lot in this book. she did not put the excitement that the others books have or the mystery of what will happen next.

Patch is HOT. Patch is funny. They are funny as a couple. So, pick up this book....................................................................AND READ THE DAMN THING. Thank you :) My friend I just talked about this the whole day and I am very picky about books.

People I finished the last book and cried because I hate Becca for ending the series.

In a series that is narrated in the first person, giving your narrator amnesia can be a tricky proposition. The readers obviously know everything that Nora can't remember so much of the mysteries that Nora attempts to unravel in the first part of the book are things the reader already knows. However, Fitzpatrick manages to pull it off and I didn't find myself getting exceedingly irritated. The relationship between Nora and Patch is still riveting, although I found the comic relief didn't occur as frequently as might be desired. However, the biggest thing for me was coming into this novel thinking it was the final book in a trilogy, wondering how all of the various plot points could possibly be resolved, and then realizing that there's at least one more novel to come in the series. While there are plot threads left hanging, there is no evil cliffhanger, so while I'm eager to read the next book, I'm not weeping and gnashing my teeth. Definitely only fare for fans of YA paranormal fiction, but it'll hit the spot for readers of the series.

Very enjoyable book. It will be hard to wait in line for the "Finale". I am very interested to see what happens next.
