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’m typically not a fan of the contemporary romance genre, but Pushing the Limits really had me captivated!
A new take on the typical two outcasts falling in love, Pushing the Limits had a very unique flare to it. Maybe it was how both of the main characters really grew significantly through their relationship, or how they started to really take control of their lives. It could have been a number of things that made this such a fantastic novel. I loved how both Noah and Echo were still learning about themselves and their pasts. It added another layer to their very complex relationship that was already truly captivating.
I also loved the characters personalities in general. Noah, seeming to be the typical bad boy, even trying to be one, and Echo appearing to be literally insane, yet neither of them were what their peers perceived them to be.
I give Pushing the Limits 4 out of 5 stars.
