Oh, and Vivian. Man, that chick is crazy. I seriously couldn't stand her from the beginning and all I wanted was for Archer to get Viv out of his life. I know the girl has issues but you should only be willing to take so much. I mean, seriously Archer, Evan is the better choice!!!
Something else that this story does incredibly well is portray an LGBT relationship without turning into an issue book. The book is not about being LGBT or coming out--it is a thriller that just happens to feature a male-male romance. And it's a heart-breakingly beautiful romance. It's the kind of romance that I think we all can appreciate and hope to have someday (if we haven't already found it). It was wonderful. I wish there were more books like this and I honestly hope to read more like this in the future. Oh, and this book also had something else I want more of: college-age MCs! I love reading about college-age MCs and I bet a lot of high schoolers do/would as well!
Overall, I don't think that I can recommend Hushed enough! I loved it so much that I read it in one sitting--and hours later couldn't stop myself from going back to reread certain parts. I definitely think that it's a story that I would like to read in its entirety again sometime soon. It's a quick-paced read that will keep readers on the edge of their seat.
