From Goodreads:

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 Review:

*I received a copy of this book for review. This in no way affected my opinion or influenced my review*

Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry blew me away. Mrs. McGarry’s writing kept my rapt attention from the start to finish. And don’t even get me started on that ending! I finished reading this book at the park and I was reduced to a blubbering mess of hot, fat tears. Few authors manage to move me the way Katie McGarry did with PTL!

Both Noah and Echo and their friends felt so real I swear I went to school with Echo. Their struggles, their triumphs became my struggles, my triumphs.

I can’t say enough good about this incredible book. Pushing the Limits is a new favorite and it won’t soon be usurped. Not only will I be purchasing a copy for my personal library, but I would recommend this book to friends and family.

Recommendation: Older Teens and up

Content: Slightly Mature Themes, Grief, Loss

Challenges: N/A read this last year, just now posting review

    1. I just read her recent novella Red at Night and remembered how much I love this author. I need to play catch up this summer and read the other books in this series!

  1. I loved this book too! The start was a bit dull but the rest of the book got really good, really fast. The second book is even better, in my opinion! 🙂

    1. Yeah, I would definitely agree the second half-ish was much stronger than the first. And once it got good it just kept getting better and better 🙂

      I need to read Dare You To and Crash Into You, but maybe not back to back haha I feel like it’ll be FEELS overload
