Okay, so let me recap on how I came to be so incredibly and irreversibly obsessed with Patch Cipriano. I bought Hush Hush at Wal-Mart about a year ago after the cover caught my eye from the 'discount' bin. It was just after Crescendo was released and they were snuggled up together. I had never read a fallen angel story so was intrigued. The rest, as they say, is history. I was totally team Patch, hook, line, and sinker!

Becca Fitzpatrick left Crescendo with a major cliff-hanger so my fellow Hush Hush fans and I were all left on the edge of seats with a barely concealed scream of frustration...What happened?!?!!? A year later and Silence comes to the rescue.

Silence opens with a prologue that I read during my 'lunch hour' at the day job that was so awesome I was watching the clock for the rest of the day so I could read on in the privacy of my home. When I finally got down and dirty with some reading I could not put it down. Well, not entirely true since I did have to go to work the next day. As much as I would like, reading does not pay the bills.

The story immediately pulls you in by the nose and you are horror-struck with the sickening realization...Nora does not remember Patch! WTH! Her memory of the past five months is gone! Kaput! Nada! Zilch! Nothing!

Nora, being the endearingly yet infuriating trouble magnet, begins her mission to find out what happened the last several weeks of her life and what she was forced to forget. Was it due to trauma or something more sinister? And why is it whenever she is around the mysteriously irresistible Jev does the blackness seem to caress her? Oi!

Silence is a roller coaster of powerful emotion and non-stop tooth gnashing trying to follow Nora on her quest of info. Becca's use of words was phenomenal and the way she brings you into Nora's head is wonderful. Nora is terribly conflicted yet driven. Patch is still dangerously seductive, and believe me ladies, you will not be able to keep from fanning yourself. He is such a volatile character you cannot help but go to puddy when he slinks near.

The stakes are getting high in Silence and Nora has a huge job in front of her. Thankfully, Patch is there for her every step of the way. Of course, Miss Becca leaves us chopping at the bit yet again, but I would gladly endure another year of rereading the delish words from Miss Becca.

So do yourself a favor, READ IT NOW! If you have not picked up the Hush Hush saga I daresay you have been doing yourself a terrible disservice. There is a reason this series has hit the coveted NYT Best Sellers list, it is a fantastic read of mystery, suspense, romance, and steamy, sauna-like one liners from the one and only Patch Cipriano.

Did Silence rock my world? Beyond YES! 9.8 on the Richter scale y'all!
Good Points
Great pace. Fast read (2 days for me). Characters are awesome and totally HAWT!
