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.

“A riveting and emotional ride!”New York Times bestselling author Simone Elkeles
“McGarry details the sexy highs, the devastating lows and the real work it takes to build true love.” Jennifer Echols, author of Such a Rush
 “An edgy romance that pulls you in and never lets go. I was hooked!”Gena Showalter, New York Times bestselling author of Alice in Zombieland.   

My POV :-

 “It doesn't get better," I said. "The pain. The wounds scab over and you don't always feel like a knife is slashing through you. But when you least expect it, the pain flashes to remind you you'll never be the same.” 

WOW, Perfect title for the story, And don't get me started on the book cover =D!!! What a fabulous read, total page turner.
. . I have been dying for this one to come out soon after reading amazing 5star reviews by almost everybody, I had huge exceptions with this one and oh boy did I love it!!! Katie McGarry’s debut was just as stunning as my instincts told me it would be.

Echo and Noah, both have family issues, both are dealing with it, both belongs to the opposite sides of the world but their personal  issues brought them together, it was destiny. Both are trying to set things right of  their tormenting past, eventually finding solace in each other.

“I've already lost a piece of my mind. I can't trust you with what's left.” 

 The narration was split between Echo and Noah which helps reader in understand both of them better. And it has a power to evoke emotions that you will be surprised yourselves (I shed more den few tears and my heart ached with pain and love both). Both the characters touched me deeply. 

“It's like I have this large black hole in my brain and it's sucking the life out of me. The answers are in there so I sit for hours and stare. No matter how hard and long I look, I only see darkness.”

  Almost every character in the story is deep set, I even liked Aires although he never appeared physically in the story, And Mrs. Collins, Echo's and Noah's social worker, she is one of those few human beings who live for others. The romance between Echo and Noah developed sweetly which left a lingering smile on my face.It doesn't have a fairly tale ending but It holds the promise or new beginning.
 4 Coffee cups.
Happy Read.

I cannot wait to read the next one ,'Dare you to', story about Beth, I am surprised to see that their is going to be another guy 'Ryan' not Isaiah, thought they are going to end up together, well that means there is going to be another one of Isaiah as well which is a good thing. I know I am going to love 'Dare you to' as well, as much as I loved Pushing the limits.
