Pushing the Limits (Pushing the Limits 1) - Katie McGarry

The Book
Release Date: 3 August 2012
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 Opinion  5 STARS
**Provided by Netgalley and Random House Publishing Group for an honest review**

So i finally got head out of my arse and read this book, and boy, am i glad i did.

I FINALLY know what all the fuss was about.

The story is about two troubled teens who find themselves drawn together and find acceptance where they thought they wouldn't find it. They are both fighting their own demons and help each other realise what it is that they both want.

they both have a very strong core strength, yet both feel powerless by themselves, weak. 

The author gave the characters enough credibility to make the story feel believable and real. I mean lets face it, how hasn't had a friend like Grace who only wants to be your friend on her on terms. Who hasn't struggled at times for acceptance of who we now, rather than who we were.

There is enough soul put into this book that you wont be able to stop yourself from crying at various points in the book, i certainly couldn't. The writing was excellent and the emotions felt by the characters were tangible. 

The tension and romance between Noah and Echo was lovely, it was a joy to watch them both grow.

The is a book that will stay with you, one you can't stop thinking about and will just HAVE to read again.

I look forward to reading the next in the series.

An astonishingly good book.
