"Crescendo" - Book Review

Nora Grey's life is still far from perfect. Surviving an attempt on her life wasn't pleasant, but at least she got a guardian angel out of it. A mysterious, magnetic, gorgeous guardian angel. But despite his role in her life, Patch has been acting anything but angelic. He's more elusive than ever (if that's possible) and what's worse, he seems to be spending time with Nora's archenemy, Marcie Millar.

Nora would have hardly noticed Scott Parnell, an old family friend who has moved back to town, if Patch hadn't been acting so distant. Even with Scott's totally infuriating attitude, Nora finds herself drawn to him - despite her lingering feelings that he is hiding something.

If that weren't enough, Nora is haunted by images of her murdered father, and comes to question whether her Nephilim bloodline has anything to do with his death. Desperate to figure out what happened, she puts herself in increasingly dangerous situations to get the answer. But maybe some things are better left buried, because the truth could destroy everything - and everyone - she trusts.

My Review:
To be completely and utterly honest this book was ...alright to me. I'm not a die-hard fan of this book series but don't get me wrong it's not terrible. This book was a lot better than the first, in my opinion, but there were some parts near the beginning that just dragged on and the momentum of the story seemed lost.
However, near the third-quarter point of the book things picked up and there was some action to keep my interest piqued. Fitzpatrick did a good job with the intense action scenes and had me freaking out alongside Nora, which was pretty cool.
Fitzpatrick definitely sprinkled a lot of jaw-dropping moments in this book, and made my eyes widen in shock several times.
The newest addition to the Hush Hush character line-up, Scott Parnell, isn't half-bad. I liked his seemingly-obnoxious attitude and his sarcastic debonair. I really liked the relationship between Scott and Nora, for the most part, because he brought out Nora's tough side and she could remain cool and in control when she was around him. Now after reading Crescendo I might be swaying a bit towards team Scott, before you throw your tomatoes remember I said might. Maybe after I read the next two books I might change my mind...maybe. We'll just have to see what happens.
