Hush, Hush #1 By Becca Fitzpatrick | Book REVIEW

3.45/5 stars

Becca Fitzpatrick’s first installment to the ‘Hush, Hush’ series, follows sixteen-year-old Nora Grey trying to go on with her everyday life.

Keyword ‘trying’. The arrival of mysterious Patch Cipriano leaves Nora intrigued. After numerous life-threatening encounters, Nora cannot be sure of whom she should trust.On her mission to seek the truth towards these encounters, Nora questions if knowing the answers is better left untouched.

The ancient battle between angels and the fallen had finally come to reach human knowledge. With Nora in the middle of it all, she’ll have to make a choice that’ll either break or make one’s future.

Followed by: Crescendo (#2 Hush, Hush series)

Main Characters:

  • Nora Grey, tall brunette female lead
  • Patch Cipriano, bus boy, Nora’s bio partner…
  • Vee Sky, curvy blonde BFF of Nora

Side Characters:

  • Miss Greene (AKA Dabria), Nora’s psychologist
  • Chauncey de Langeais (AKA Jules), ‘friend’ of Patch (*spoiler* Patch’s Nephilim Vassal)
  • Elliot Saunders, friend of Jules, transfer student Coldwater High (Nora and Vee’s school)
  • Rixon, closest thing to a brother of Patch (and Irish 😉 Fallen Angel)
  • Marcie Millar, stereotypical cheerleading mean-girl

Our Review:


Let’s start with the dark, debonair Patch who entered our fangirl souls. The quick-witted banter between Nora and Patch are on-point.

“I don’t go out with strangers, I said.
Good thing I do. I’ll pick you up at five.”

Patch is a Fallen Angel. Falling for Nora is the last thing he wants. It’s the last thing his best mate, Jules wants. Both have different motives.
Now you should know that Patch and Jules don’t exactly have a ‘normal’ friendship. In fact Patch forces this ‘relationship’ on Jules…over hundred years ago. Back then Jules was known as Chauncey de Langeais – still a playboy and to inherit some big cash. It was around that time did he become Patch’s Nephilim Vassal, where Jules was forced (and still is) to give up his body and free will for 2 weeks every year during Cheshvan (Hebrew month on the 8th month – Autumn).

While Jules hangs out with Vee (Nora’s BFF), Elliot (Jules friend) hangs out with Nora. And that’s only because her reckless of a BFF directed him to her. Why is it reckless? Other than he is a stranger? That would be a major spoiler but let us just say he and Jules are not sane.

Overall, for all who love fallen angels and witty characters – this is the book for you!!! There are moments where you get second-hand embarrassment from, making you want to hide under a rock (of course in a good way). A particular scene being- what we conveniently named- the “bathroom scene”. For some, this book may not be your cup of tea – but if you want a quick, funny read then you should give this book a try!

Read this book before? Loved Patch 😍 just like we did? Or read Becca’s other works? Comment down below 👇🏻 !! We don’t bite!

  1. I love how you did your review on this book. I loved this whole series even though Nora could be a little naive at times, but I think she fit the story. I have also read Dangerous Lies by Becca Fitzpatrick and even though it is different from Hush Hush it is still really good. I actually did a review of Hush Hush on my blog and am going to do one for Dangerous Lies if you would like to check it out at

    1. Aw thanks!!😊❤

      We totally agree – Nora could be a little dense and naive!! But overall it worked well!!

      We unfortunately did not get around to reading Becca’s other works…. and it may be a while before we can…our TBR is far too big!😅

      Sure thing! Perhaps your review might may convince us to put the book higher up…if that does happen we still would need to find the time though😅😅


  2. This book series is probably one of few that I won’t end up finishing, unless I suddenly have a whim. I just found it to be a bit problematic, and it didn’t help that i didn’t really like Patch?? I’m not even sure why, but something about him creeped me out. I did like the whole take on the fallen angels trope, though! Lovely review! 🙂

    1. Ahh it’s alright to not finish a book and to be fair we read this series when we were young and it stuck with us…perhaps if you were younger? But then again we all have different tastes.
      The fallen angel trope – is a trope we absolutely love!! We highly recommend you read Angelfall by Susan Ee, that may be more your tastes perhaps?
      Thank you, it means a lot 😊❤

      1. I have read Angelfall actually – though I haven’t been able to find the other books in the series yet! I really liked it – the dystopian world was really cool and I hope we get to see more of the angels in the rest of the series.
        And you’re welcome, you totally deserve it!

      2. It’s a shame yoy can’t find the other 2 books. The series is absolutely AMAZING! And we cannot tell you how much times we’ve reread it! (Especially when our TBR just seems to grow lol😅).
        The series gets soo much better and now it feels like one book (fairly easy to read) and there’s so much angels involved!! Aw thank you 😊😊
