Publisher's Summary

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.

The Tough Stuff.

Pushing The Limits is a surprisingly beautiful tale of two teenagers who are dealt a bad hand. I loved hearing these two overcome their crappy situations and figure out how to love themselves and how to be loved.

There is quite a bit of teen angst that I feel a bit removed from (being 20 something) but overall I think its a story almost everyone can love.

Tara Sands performance is a little high pitched for my taste but MacLeod Andrews makes up for it.

I suggest you give this book a chance!

Touching teen romance with suspenseful drama

As a mother of teenagers I like to read young adult novels, and Pushing the Limits kept me riveted and I thoroughly enjoyed the entire book, couldn't put it down. The back and forth narration format allowed me to connect strongly with both Echo and Noah, and watching them help and heal each other in the context of their family issues was satisfying.

There were times I found Tara Sand's voice a bit grating at times, but her pacing and emotion would soon sink me back into the story. She sounded a lot like Kat Denning to me. MacLeod Andrews never disappoints when voicing young, male characters and his portrayal of Noah was sufficiently sexy yet vulnerable and even had me wiping away a tear at the end. The soothing, yet angsty timbre of his voice was a perfect complement to Tara Sand's Echo.

I would definitely recommend this book to both adults and young adults, as it combined a sufficiently realistic high school feel with mystery (what happened to Echo), heart wrenching drama (Noah's need for his family) and flashes of humor as the story unfolded.
