Goodreads Synopsis:
No one knows what happened the night Echo Emerson went from popular girl with jock boyfriend to gossiped-about outsider with "freaky" scars on her arms. Even Echo can't remember the whole truth of that horrible night. All she knows is that she wants everything to go back to normal.But when Noah Hutchins, the smoking-hot, girl-using loner in the black leather jacket, explodes into her life with his tough attitude and surprising understanding, Echo's world shifts in ways she could never have imagined. They should have nothing in common. And with the secrets they both keep, being together is pretty much impossible.

Yet the crazy attraction between them refuses to go away. And Echo has to ask herself just how far they can push the limits and what she'll risk for the one guy who might teach her how to love again

My Thoughts:
This has got to be one of the most emotional reads of 2012 by far. I cannot count how many times I laughed and cried throughout the book. This is such a heartwarming tale of two unlikely people coming together and falling in love.

PTL is told from both Echo and Noah's POV which is something I really enjoy. It gives the story that much more depth and you are able to truly understand the dynamics of the character's.

The story is so realistic with the situation and settings that you will have no issue investing in the character's.

All I have to say is that every girl deserves her own Noah Hutchins. The steamy bad boy who really has a heart of gold underneath his tough exterior.

I LOVED IT LOVED IT LOVED IT!! I was so captivated by the story that I stayed up half the night until I was finished. I could not stop until I found out what happened but then I cursed myself because I should have savoured it.

There is not one bad thing I can say about this book. Even the sub character's were amazing. Wonderful plot, amazing character's and an emotional whirlwind.

I will be revisiting Pushing The Limits time and time again.

  1. I don't get myself. I haven't read any negative review about this book so far, but I still can't make myself read it. There is something about it that is putting me off and I can't explain what. But, great review and I'm happy you liked it so much!

  2. I really liked this one, too, and cannot wait for its companion novel. And I'm happy whenever I see someone's review, when they loved this book so much, too. :)
