Crescendo (Hush, Hush #2) by Becca Fitzpatrick

 Book Description:

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?

Christina's BookReview
“Being with you never felt wrong. It's the one thing I did right. You're the one thing I did right.” 

“You're mine, Angel," he murmured, brushing the words across my jawbone as I arched my neck higher, inviting him to kiss everywhere. "You have me forever.”  

OMG! I finished this book last night and I have to say that I LOVED this book so much better then the first! Nora, was so much stronger in this one and I still loved that she didn't let people push her around. I liked that she questioned it all. I'm also glad that we got to learn more about Patch. And i have to say that i finally Love him! :-) We had a rough start to our relationship but its all good now as long as he doesn't pull back again! lol..I wanted to kick him a few times in this book but getting to know more about him evened it out.

Many people thought that Nora was being hardheaded and annoying about the way she was treating him but I thought that she did the right thing. He was keeping things from her and
SPOILER--->spending time with her arch enemy  so of course I thought she did the right thing.

Which leads me to "Scottie the Hottie" :-) I love that name! I thought Scout was a great addition and I just wished that he were more present in the book. I fought hard to like him but he kept messing it up. I thought he could have presented Patch with a little competition but from the beginning you know that its not possible. With that said, I hope to see more of him, not as competition to Patch(because I love him now) but as a friend to Nora.

Vee is still my favorite character aside from the main characters. She was there for Nora when she need it the most and I love her more for that. I just hoped that Nora would let her into the "secret" because I think she would handle it okay. It would be nice for Nora to talk to her friend about all of it.

The End was like Wow! SPOILER---> I so wished it wasn't Rixon! I was beginning to like him!Now I'm on to read Silence.

With all that said, I would recommend this book to anyone that wants to read a book about fallen angels. :-)
