Will love conquer all?
Nora and Patch thought their troubles were behind them. Hank is gone and they should be able to put his ugly vendetta to rest. But in Hank’s absence, Nora has become the unwitting head of the Nephilim and must finish what Hank began. Which ultimately means destroying the fallen angels - destroying Patch.
Nora will never let that happen, so she and Patch make a plan: lead everyone to believe they have broken up, and work the system from the inside. Nora will convince the Nephilim that they are making a mistake in fighting the fallen angels, and Patch will find out everything he can from the opposing side. They will end this war before it can even begin.
But the best-laid plans often go awry. Nora is put through the paces in her new role and finds herself drawn to an addictive power she never anticipated.
As the battle lines are drawn, Nora and Patch must confront the differences that have always been between them and either choose to ignore them or let them destroy the love they have always fought for.

Release Date: October 23, 2012
Nora is more certain than ever that she is in love with Patch. Fallen angel or no, he is the one for her. Her heritage and destiny may mean that they will always be enemies, but there is no turning her back on him. But now they face their biggest challenge. Can their love survive a seemingly insurmountable divide. And in the end, will there be enough trust left to rebuild what has been broken? The lines are drawn - but which sides are they on?
Check out my review of Hush Hush and Crescendo.
Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick
Nora Grey’s life is still far from perfect. Surviving an attempt on her life wasn’t pleasant, but at least she got a guardian angel out of it: a mysterious, magnetic, gorgeous guardian angel. But, despite his role in her life, Patch has been acting anything but angelic. He’s more elusive than ever and even worse, he’s started spending time with Nora’s arch-enemy, Marcie Millar.
Nora would have hardly noticed Scott Parnell, an old family friend who has moved back to town, if Patch hadnt been acting so distant. Even with Scott’s totally infuriating attitude Nora finds herself drawn to him - despite her lingering feeling that he’s hiding something.
Haunted by images of her murdered father, and questioning whether her nephilim bloodline has anything to do with his death, Nora puts herself increasingly in dangerous situations as she desperately searches for answers. But maybe some things are better left buried, because the truth could destroy everything - and everyone - she trusts.
Review: This book is an emotional roller coaster, and more on depressing stuff, I might add. I guess I was just so deeply attracted to this series that I feel every emotion thrown to me deeper than the usual.
At the first five chapters of this book, I had to stop and have a break in every chapter because it was so depressing. I even had an emotional breakdown after reading the first chapter! This book is major tears developer.
Patch is such a bitch, plus the true bitch Marcie Millar was just, everytime they’re together, I just wanna rip the book apart but obviously I didn’t. It was kind of slow at some parts but at the end of every chapter it’ll be kind of driving that it’ll make you reach for more. Patch can still definitely make you reach for more even though you’re already super bored.
This story is much more detailed than the first book, more secrets are revealed so you will kind of understand the whole story behind everything and match the puzzle pieces together. Plus the facts are super interesting. Read it if you haven’t yet!
Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She’s never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her…until Patch comes along.
With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment, but after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora’s not sure whom to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can’t decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is far more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.
For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life.
Review: So, what can I say about this book? Its amazing! My friends keep on recommending this series to me before but I hesitated because a lot of new books are coming out. And then, one day, I have nothing to read and decided to try it. And it was beautiful. It was so beautiful, it hurts.
Even if the story involves the same kind of species from other books, it was totally different. I loved Patch the first time I read about him. The way he talks and get under Nora’s skin effortlessly is just super sexy. He’s undeniably sexy and alluring and can seduce you any time of the day. He’s exactly what girls are looking for in a guy, he is trouble. Don’t deny the fact that girls often likes what’s not good for them. So you can’t really blame Nora.
Anyway, back to the story. Every page is exciting, there was no dull part. I finished this book in one day because I couldn’t stop reading. I love how it combines romance and action at the same time. Those kind of plots is much more exciting than just romance alone.
So if you kind of lost your enthusiasm in reading, I recommend this book for you to read and you will surely be back in business in no time.
