Review- Pushing The Limits by Katie McGarry


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.


Pushing The Limits was a fabulous read for me. I thoroughly enjoyed all the emotions which coursed through me while I was lost in Echo and Noah's world. There was love, pain , laughter, sadness, anger and so many more things. Its like all of them came together in perfect harmony in this book. Some concepts were ones which I had read in previous books but the way they were delivered made it enjoyable all over again.

Echo Emerson went from being a popular girl to a freak after an incident happened one horrible night. No one knows how she got the scars on her arms and she can't remember it. Echo was a really sweet girl. She has already lost her brother Aires and is going through a hell lot of issues. She just wanted to be loved for who she was without all the baggage looming above her head.

Noah Hutchins is a girl using loner. He prefers to be by himself or with his best friends Beth and Isaiah. On the outside Noah came off as a total jerk. But when you actually got to know him all I could feel was heart breaking sadness for him. Life is so not easy for Noah and he doesn't have the time to look out for anyone but himself.

Echo and Noah are both carrying secrets. When they are thrown together in a number of incidents they finally begin understanding each other. Somehow they get each other through all their pain and worries. I loved Echo and Noah's chemistry. It was dark and sultry and seductive. It was addictive. Some lines may have been a little corny for high school students but there was passion behind them. Noah and Echo were characters with a lot of depth.

Pushing The Limits is a book in dual point of view so we know exactly what is going on in Echo and Noah's head. This makes it an all the more rich experience to read. The writing style was swift and easy and precise. Though the book was around 400 pages long I flew through it. It was that engaging. If you're a fan of contemporary reads with romance in it you should definitely give Pushing The Limits a chance.
