"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.  

 

"An edgy romance that pulls you in and never lets go. I was hooked!"-Gena Showalter,  New York Times bestselling author of the Intertwined series 

 

Katie McGarry was a teenager during the age of grunge and boy bands and remembers those years as the best and worst of her life. She is a lover of music, happy endings and reality television, and is a secret University of Kentucky basketball fan.

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 themrefuses 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.

Review:

"In a novel brimming with dark memories, veiled secrets, and steamy moments, first-time author McGarry introduces two teenagers struggling to regain normalcy after their lives have been shattered by separate tragedies. When high school social worker Mrs. Collins asks Echo, a senior, to tutor Noah, she agrees, even though Noah has the reputation of being a 'girl-using stoner boy.' Though the students initially clash, they discover they have something in common: both are desperate to look at their personal files, housed in Mrs. Collins's office. Noah wants to locate his younger brothers, who were placed in a separate foster home, and Echo needs to know the truth about an incident — wiped from her memory — that left her arms badly scarred and led to a restraining order against her mother. As the teens hatch their plan, they begin to fall in love. This somewhat sensationalized 'opposites attract' romance may dwell a little too long on Noah's infatuation with Echo's red hair and large breasts, but its suspenseful plot, dramatic conflicts, and tragic characters will keep readers engrossed. Ages 14 — up. Agent: Kevan Lyon, Marsal Lyon Literary Agency." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Pushing the Limits is absolutely amazing.

For one, the cover is awesome. Not only does it draw in readers, it also makes sense with the content of the book. (So yes, there is plenty of kissing.)

Katie McGarry did a phenomenal job not only on creating good, realistic characters, but also in making the readers care about them. I cried at least three times while reading this, and I'm pretty sure all of them were during Noah's POV.

Noah was a pretty awesome guy. He made some mistakes, and people often misjudged him, but he was a good guy. He cared about his brothers more than anything in the world, and he would do anything to keep them safe. And it was so sweet how he called Echo his siren/nymph/goddess.

Echo (I love her name!) was an outsider, and she'd been through a lot. Ever since the incident, people treated her like a freak, and she had a huge hole in her memory. She received a lot of crappy treatment from lots of different people (like her "friends," Luke, her mom, and sometimes even her dad).

I think that Noah and Echo are perfect for each other. And it's kind of funny how each of them don't think that they deserve the other.

When it came to Echo's memories, there were lots of things that really shocked me, as well as horrify me.

The ending was full of hope. It was lovely. It may have been an ending for the readers, but it was a whole new beginning for Noah and Echo :)
