Pushed is definitely one of those books in which I’m wondering why I didn’t read it sooner. It was an amazing sequel and I loved how an old character was put in a whole new light! 

I loved Touched, but I was still hesitant to pick up Pushed. I wasn’t sure if it would enjoy it as much as the first, which was definitely somewhat intimidating. However, I had absolutely no reason to worry. Pushed was even better than the first in my opinion, mainly because of both the character development that took place and the romance.

In the last book, I found Asher to be amazing. I still liked him in this book, but not quite as much. I just felt like he and Rory weren’t a great couple. They were cute, but not amazing. I think one of the reasons for it was an old character that became a love interest in this book. I don’t want to mention who it is, but he was one of the best guys! I liked him so much more than Asher, mainly because I feel that he really helped push Rory to be stronger. This guy is so different than what I expected him to be based on his personality in the last book.

Rory is determined to find out more about her past in this book and stays with her grandpa along the way, someone who can’t stand protectors-which definitely made things interesting as Rory tried to keep her own secrets ;) She grew so much stronger in this book, and I loved her journey to becoming an independent, self reliant person. I think her character growth also contributed to me thinking that Asher wasn’t quite the right guy for her anymore. Her family is just as awesome as ever, though, and I liked how you got to see a realistic side to her relationship with her dad. 

The plot is even more exciting than the last book and you find out a little more about Rory’s ancestry. I’m still extremely curious to see exactly how everything will tie up in the final book. This book definitely has it’s hilarious moments as well, especially concerning some events that result from the bonding. 

Pushed was an awesome sequel! I’d highly recommend that anyone who hasn’t yet read this series start it. I’ve read some teasers for the final book which gives me hope for the guy I want Rory to end up with, too ;) I’m already counting down the days until Ignited releases. I’d give Pushed 5 out of 5 flowers.


  1. The other guy you won't mention has me curious. I'm wondering if Asher is a temporary thing? I hope for your sake it's definitely the case. :)

  2. Oh gosh, I think I need to try this series now, I had no idea it was so good! Great review.

  3. I don't know these books, but that's great you loved the sequel!!

  4. Oh, it makes me want to read the first book even more knowing that it has an awesome sequel!

  5. Oh, this looks really interesting. I have read only one her novel and it was contemporary, but I'd have to check this one out too.

  6. I haven't read the first one so I skimmed your review, but this makes me very excited! I love when the sequels are just as exciting and you love it as much. Great sequels always tell me a lot about a series and the author! Great review :)
