With a suspenseful storyline and a cliffhanger ending, Push is one of those stories that will not only hook readers but also leave them hanging with lots of unanswered questions. Wallis’s first New Adult title reads more like a psychological thriller along the lines of a Gillian Flynn novel with New Adult elements thrown in. Sure, it has the requisite hot bad boy and loads of steamy scenes, but there are also extraordinary twists and missing pieces revealed, guaranteed to surprise readers. Those looking for a riveting late night story and a rollercoaster ride, look no further than Push. Definitely one of the most unique NA books out there!
