YA Review: Pushing The Limits by Katie McGarry

Pushing the Limits (Pushing The Limits #1)
by Katie McGarry
"I won't tell anyone, Echo. I promise." Noah tucked a curl behind my ear. It had been so long since someone touched me like he did. Why did it have to be Noah Hutchins? His dark brown eyes shifted to my covered arms. "You didn't do that-did you? It was done to you?" No one ever asked that question. They stared. They whispered. They laughed. But they never asked.

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 was looking for a ansty-emotional, well written YA and Katie McGarry delivered. The best part of reading Pushing The Limits was going into it blind. The layers were nicely peeled away with Echo's past in remembering how she got her scars.  How she got her scars broke my heart.  
For me Noah was the star in Pushing The Limits. He is a swoon-worthy, tattoo-sporting hero who will do what ever it takes to protect his loved ones. I loved that he never assumed anything about Echo and her scars. I get why Echo fell in love with Noah. Because of Katie McGarry beautiful writing voice I also fell in love with him. Loved watching Echo little by little forget about her scars around Noah.
The school counselor was a hoot and loved that her time helped break up the emotional aspect in Pushing The Limits.
Pushing The Limits was a page turner for me. Read it in 2 days. If real life did not interfere I would of read in one sitting. I could not swipe my kindle fast enough to see how Noah and Echo story played out. I especially wanted to know their secrets. I do look forward to continue Pushing The Limits series. Especially when in the mood for ansty-emotional YA read.
