"I won't tell anyone, Echo. I promise." Noah tucked a curl behind my ear. It had been so long since someone touched me like he did. Why did it have to be Noah Hutchins? His dark brown eyes shifted to my covered arms. "You didn't do that-did you? It was done to you?" No one ever asked that question. They stared. They whispered. They laughed. But they never asked.
"An edgy romance that pulls you in and never lets go. I was hooked!"-Gena Showalter, New York Times bestselling author of the Intertwined series
So wrong for each other...and yet so right.
No one knows what happened the night Echo Emerson went from popular girl with jock boyfriend to gossiped-about outsider with "freaky" scars on her arms. Even Echo can't remember the whole truth of that horrible night. All she knows is that she wants everything to go back to normal. But when Noah Hutchins, the smoking-hot, girl-using loner in the black leather jacket, explodes into her life with his tough attitude and surprising understanding, Echo's world shifts in ways she could never have imagined. They should have nothing in common. And with the secrets they both keep, being together is pretty much impossible. Yet the crazy attraction between them refuses to go away. And Echo has to ask herself just how far they can push the limits and what she'll risk for the one guy who might teach her how to love again
I took a chance and requested this book to review and I am so luck that I got the opportunity to do so as this book was FANTASTIC!!!! I loved it. From the characters to the story.
Echo and Noah break your heart for what they had to endure in life. Mrs.Collins the clinical social worker is fabulous you wish there were more care givers in the system to make it an easier place to live in when things get tough.
Echo's friends for the most part are typical douches who think popularity is more important then the actual person you want to be friends with well except Lila who is great and is a true friend.
Noah's friends are atypical but great while being a little hard on the edges but have Noah's back.
Echo's family life and history is so so shocking and fascinating at the same time. I think the chemistry between Echo and Noah is fantastic and love that they have found what they need in each other.
I have been thinking about this book non stop since I put it down which to me is always a measure of a great book when it seeps into your soul.
I recommend this book to ALL and can NOT wait for the companion novel Dare you to.
This book is available for pre-order now at Amazon: Pushing the Limits (Harlequin Teen)
I give this book a definite 5 thumbs up for sure!
