Review: Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry

Title: Pushing the Limits
Author: Katie McGarry
Publisher: Mira Ink
Rating:  4/5 stars


 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.

 My thoughts: 

This is a book that I own myself in both physical and e-book formats.
I was super excited about starting this book, as all I had heard about it was great things, and I was in the mood for a good romance. 
The main base of the story was revolved around the two characters: Echo and Noah.
They both tell the story from their own point of view.  This is interesting, as we get to see their thoughts and feelings. 
Both characters had problems in their lives. Neither of them are perfect. 
When Echo was younger, she had a traumatic event with her mother. 
Noah lost his parents, and then got separated from his younger brothers. 
As soon as these characters got together, sparks flew, and you could tell they were perfect for each other. 
They brought out the good in each other, and that's what I loved. 
Noah didn't care Echo had scars on her body, and Echo could see Noah wasn't as much of a bad boy as he seemed.
Towards the end of the book, Noah turned into a better person, and Echo got more confident in herself. 
The beginning of the story left me wanting more, and the ending was sweet and happy. 
I like how the cover relates to both characters. Both different colours symbolising how opposites attract. 
There were some parts I felt didn't need to necessarily be there, but overall was a great read, and that's why I gave it four stars.
If you really like romance stories, then definitely give this a go.
