I've had a rough start with this book. I hated it, despised it and I literally wanted to throw it across my room, but I couldn't do that because it was an ebook. I burrowed this book from my online library several times. I read a few chapters, then returned it - thinking it was crap, burrowed it again because I thought it would be good, vice versa. After seeing one of my favourite bloggers talk about this book, I knew it was time to force myself to read this and see what the hype was about.
The main reason why I didn't like this book in the beginning was Noah. His POV was definitely hard to get into. I didn't like his character at all. I just thought he was a typical bad boy. Eventually, I grew to like him. His love for his brothers was the only thing attractive about him. To be totally honest with you, I cried when Noah was debating whether he should let his brothers stay with their foster parents or fight for his brothers through court. I understand the pain he went through because I, myself have foster siblings. I understood Noah's side and the foster parents' sides.
Pushing the Limits was a fantastic contemporary. Though it was sort of cliché, it was a fairly written one. I've read better love stories with emotionally/physically damaged characters. I don't see myself re-reading this book, but I will definitely check out the next book in the series.
