Finale (Hush, Hush #4) by Becca Fitzpatrick

Finale (Hush, Hush #4) by Becca Fitzpatrick
This is a young adult paranormal romance novel (Rated PG-13)
Book Summary
Will love conquer all?

Nora and Patch thought their troubles were behind them. Hank is gone and they should be able to put his ugly vendetta to rest. But in Hank's absence, Nora has become the unwitting head of the Nephilim and must finish what Hank began. Which ultimately means destroying the fallen angels - destroying Patch.

Nora will never let that happen, so she and Patch make a plan: lead everyone to believe they have broken up, and work the system from the inside. Nora will convince the Nephilim that they are making a mistake in fighting the fallen angels, and Patch will find out everything he can from the opposing side. They will end this war before it can even begin.

But the best-laid plans often go awry. Nora is put through the paces in her new role and finds herself drawn to an addictive power she never anticipated.

As the battle lines are drawn, Nora and Patch must confront the differences that have always been between them and either choose to ignore them or let them destroy the love they have always fought for.
My Review
Well, we are at an end.  Thank the heavens.  This book was far better than the last.  However, it wasn’t without it faults. Seeing that I am not the target audience for the book, I rounded up my rating from 3.5 to 4 stars.
However, that only covers the ending or epilogue that lacked all the heat and intensity that was built up in tiny doses throughout the series.
My problems with this book were three things. The first and major one was the act at the near the end of the book.  What bothered me about it was that after the senseless act, Nora pulls it together just after to defeat the guy.  I mean really. Really, she couldn’t act before???
My second problem was with V, her best friend. Was that really necessary? Sorry if you haven’t read. I’m trying not to do a spoiler review. So if you’ve read, I mean, out of the blue, now V is in the know.  And she doesn’t mention it to Nora until now. And what about Scott.  He seems to follow what Nora wants and dates someone just because Nora wanted it. Well, that’s what it felt like.
Third, Patch. I don’t know. The feather thing and the break out all seemed so contrived. *rolls my eyes* Yet, this book was far better than the last. I’m glad it’s over. It wasn’t a total waste of time, but I could have done without reading this series.
Audio Review
Catlin Greer narrated and it was okay. Her Nora was pretty good, but her other voices blended a lot in terms of sounding a lot alike. However, the book didn’t have complicated dialogue that involved a lot of people most of the time, therefore it wasn’t a big problem that she didn’t vary her voice a whole lot.
My book boyfriend Patch. (using the cover model, why not)
