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 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.
