Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

Goodreads Summary: "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: Ok... what's the deal with Nora and Patch? He humiliates her, goes out of his way to make her life difficult (hey, Patch? just because you're not mortal and don't need to get good grades and go to college, doesn't mean other people don't. Stop interfering with Nora's bio grade. kthxbai), and is rude and cryptic whenever he talks to her, which is all the time. BUT WAIT! For reasons she can't explain, she's drawn to him!!!

There's "then he looked at me twice" drama, and then there's ridiculous drama. And this was definitely the latter. Besides which... I liked Elliot a lot better. You know, before he started being all creepy. Prior to that point, he definitely counted as one of my Likeable Bad Guys (because I had heard enough about it to know that she was going to end up with Patch, thus making Elliot a bad guy).

And yet... I still liked it. It was pretty good. It didn't, thank goodness, have Twilight Pacing, which is Relationship Drama for the first two-thirds/three-fourths of the book... and then an inexplicable dangerous situation that Has To Be Resolved for the last third/fourth. It was one book the whole time, which actually had a fairly coherent storyline, so... props for that.

Probably going to read Crescendo.
