"I won't tell anyone, Echo. I promise." Noah tucked a curl behind my ear. It had been so long since someone touched me like he did. Why did it have to be Noah Hutchins? His dark brown eyes shifted to my covered arms. "You didn't do that-did you? It was done to you?" No one ever asked that question. They stared. They whispered. They laughed. But they never asked.

So wrong for each other...and yet so right.

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.

I had high expectation for Pushing the Limits after hearing and reading lots of 4 to 5 stars review on the blogosphere when it first came out. Pushing the Limits started out great. I love Echo and Noah immediately. Echo was the nice girl with good grades and friends. But her life changed after a terrible tragedy that she can’t seem to remember. And Noah was the bad boy who wasn’t all that bad. His parents died and he was now fighting for custody of his two younger brothers. 

The book was written in both Echo’s and Noah’s perspective. I really love Echo and Noah and how their relationship was built. I loved their chemistry. Noah and Echo were perfect for each other. I love how Echo’s and Noah’s relationship was built and I enjoyed watching Echo’s and Noah’s relationship with other characters around them.What I didn’t really like was how at earlier in the book, Noah and Luke looked at Echo and all they would always think about sex. Echo was hot. I got it.

I didn't enjoy this as much as the others, but I do think that Pushing the Limits was quite a good read. I think that fans of Contemporary YA would enjoy this book.  


  1. Have you heard people raving about Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry? I'm sure you have. I'm pretty sure that everyone that's read it so far has loved it. All those glowing things readers are saying are 100% true. I can confirm this because I absolutely loved this book.

  2. Too bad you didn't like it like everybody else! This is one of those rare cases in which I found the hype to be true, because I did end up loving the book and giving it 5 stars.
    About the sex part... You have to take into account the fact that they're boys, and that at the time they didn't really know her, and that boys DO think of those things a lot.
    I hope you'll give the rest of the series a shot - maybe you'll like them better! ;)

    1. I am going to give the other book a chance. I heard that they are other books are much better :)
