Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick

53
This is the 2nd book in the Hush, Hush series.  I thought there was too much of the "romance" in this one and not enough action.  It was also petty at times about the rivalry between the main character and her arch enemy.  It bordered on cheesy.  But, the third book is starting out strong.  There is a solid story line here if the author will just not get too side tracked with the "boy girl" relationship.  Of course, that is probably what keeps the teenagers reading! LOL!

Summary from goodreads.com:
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.
