Pushing The Limits: A Book Review

I have heard so many wonderful things about Katie McGarry and this series as a whole!  I was able to snag the first 3 books on my Kindle when they were on sale for only a couple of bucks each!  The other day, I had an extremely slow day at work, so I started Pushing the Limits.  I ended up finishing this book in a few days because I couldn’t put it down!  I highly recommend this book if you enjoy contemporary romance!

Goodreads Summary:

So wrong for each other …and yet so right.

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 quickly fell in love with all of these characters!  Our two main characters, Echo and Noah, were incredibly real and watching their relationship form was so much fun.  Echo’s character was so well developed as was Noah’s, which made each of them seem extremely realistic.  Even the side characters, such as Echo’s and Noah’s friends, were also very interesting to read about and to see how they interacted with our main characters.


This story follows Echo and Noah as their relationship develops over the course of a few months.  Echo was once a popular girl in high school, but a severe accident caused her to hide and keep to herself.  Noah also has some secrets in his past; however, he acts out in a different way, such as ditching classes and falling behind in school.  Echo’s school counselor asks her to tutor Noah for some extra cash, and their relationship develops from there.

Writing Style:

I absolutely loved the writing style of Katie McGarry!  I thought the plot and dialogue were very realistic.  Several times, I would just smile or chuckle out loud at the cuteness of this story.  Plus, there were ups and downs when learning about the background of these characters that kept me reading.  I couldn’t put this book down!

I’m assuming you have already read this book because so many people have, but if you haven’t, I highly recommend it!  I can’t wait to read about some of these other characters in the following novels!
