Wren is one of "the gifted"-a college sophomore with the power to compel others' feelings and desires. He uses his power as a game of sexual consent until Cameron, a naïve freshman, enters his life. As Cameron begins to understand his sexuality and gain confidence under Wren's tutelage, Wren grows to recognize new and unexpected things about himself. Will Cameron's growing confidence finally break down Wren's emotional walls, or will Wren walk away from his best chance for love?

ThreeandHalfStars The beginning of this story was hard for me to get into as it drivels on and on about pointless things that only made the story dull to me. I understand that we had to know what Cam has gone through to get to where he was, but it was really long winded. However once him and Wren start their escapes, it was wildly interesting. However, there were many times were I couldn't figure out what was going on with them. There was no keeping track of how much time had passed between gaps in the story so it was hard to keep up. Some scenes were only half a page long and felt awkward. While underneath I really loved the story and the two men trying to figure out how to make what they had work, I really felt like there could've been additional edits as there are errors littered through out the story as well as things like 'picking and picking' and other repetitious words and phrases that really slowed and detracted from the story. There also appeared to be missing words. However, that being said, I liked the story and the characters and the development that happened throughout so I would read work from this author again. I was given this in return for an honest review by Inked Rainbow Reads. Renee
Hush is a magical book that completely took me by surprise. I knew I would like it (I’ve long been a fan of Jude’s fan work), but I had no idea how much it would draw me in and not let me go, to the tune of me reading it cover-to-cover in less than four hours. It had a hold on me much the way Wren had a hold on Cam, and, just like Cam, I was more than happy with that arrangement. One thing that surprised me about the book was that, despite Wren saying that he was going to make Cam want to do things he never knew he wanted, the things he ends up compelling Cam to do are, in the grand scheme of things, relatively tame. (Though it’s possible I just read too much of a certain brand of fanfiction and what is tame to me maybe isn’t so tame to general audiences.) I love that there are hints throughout the book about certain people (Peyton in particular, and Cam himself for another), but they’re never really flushed out, leaving the reader satisfied but still wanting to know more – which I sincerely hope is a hint that there’s a sequel planned.
