Character Interview: Noah & Echo (Pushing the Limits) + US Only Giveaway

Ya'll remember when I said Pushing the Limits put my heart through the wringer and I couldn't pull away? That's still true, BUT my love of this book pushed me to yank out some courage and contact the MAGNIFICENT author behind this awesomesauce book. With us today, because of the fabulous Katie McGarry, is Noah and Echo, the two (BEST!) main characters in Pushing the Limits. CHECK IT:
Your first kiss was…
N: Hot.

Echo blushes as Noah smiles when he notices her red cheeks.

E: Yeah, it was definitely hot…and sweet.

Noah takes Echo’s hand.

N: It was the first time in years I felt like I was home.
Your favorite person is…
N: My brothers—no question.

E: My brother as well—Aires.
Your favorite fantasy is…
N: What is the rating level of this interview?

Echo slaps Noah’s arm.

E: G. We’re doing a G rated interview.

N: Let’s see…G rated…holding Echo as she sleeps and seeing that smile on her face when she wakes.

E: That sounds like an awesome fantasy to me.
Your first impression of each other was…
E: I hated him. He made fun of my name.

N: That she was stuck up, but damn if she wasn’t fun to mess with.
When you kiss him/her…
N: As I said before, kissing Echo is like coming home. It can be hot and crazy, but always deep down inside I know I’m with the person made for me.

E: When I kiss Noah, I forget everything. Sometimes my own name. He has this way of making all the wrongs in the world go away.
Your side of the bed is…
N: Left.

E: Right.
You hate when he/she…
N: Focuses on her scars. She’s beautiful and I wish she could always see that.

E: Sometimes Noah’s too blunt. It can take a bit to get used to.
You love when he/she…
N: Easy—smiles. Echo has a gorgeous smile.

E: Holds me. Noah always makes me feel protected.
When you’re not in school…
N: I work. I’m currently flipping burgers.

E: I paint and draw. It’s sort of my obsession.
What was the most momentous occasion in your relationship together?
N: Definitely that day in the hospital. That whole twenty-four hours was messed up.

E: Yes, it was, but it brought us together.
You want to visit…
E: Colorado! I want to see snow capped mountains!

N: Wherever Echo is or wherever my brothers are. They are everything to me.
When you picture yourselves five or ten years from now…
N: In five years? Graduated from college. Maybe I’ll be an architect like my dad.

E: I’d love to be established selling my paintings in five years.

N: And in ten?

Noah glances at Echo.

E: What? Do you have ten year plans?

Noah shrugs and smiles.

N: I’ve got plans.

So wrong for each other...and yet so right.

No one knows what happened the night Echo Emerson went from popular girl with jock boyfriend to gossiped-about outsider with "freaky" scars on her arms. Even Echo can't remember the whole truth of that horrible night. All she knows is that she wants everything to go back to normal. But when Noah Hutchins, the smoking-hot, girl-using loner in the black leather jacket, explodes into her life with his tough attitude and surprising understanding, Echo's world shifts in ways she could never have imagined. They should have nothing in common. And with the secrets they both keep, being together is pretty much impossible. Yet the crazy attraction between them refuses to go away. And Echo has to ask herself just how far they can push the limits and what she'll risk for the one guy who might teach her how to love again.

Danny Bookworm said...

Bailey said...

That interview was amazing!! I loved this book so much and this interview totally makes me want to reread Pushing The Limits. Thanks for the giveaway! :D

Ahhh I LOVE them! This was a great interview! They are definitely my favorite couple right now! I absolutely loved their story! 

Jennifer Bielman said...

I always thought I was into nice guys. But even today I was watching this actor purposly acting smug, forward, and an overall asshat and I was totally into him. So I guess I like the bad boys. As long as the bad boy is funny, even in inappropriate ways, then I am all good.

Bookish Things said...

Definitely bad boys! ;) 

Lili said...

I like bad boys. Nice guys are great, but bad boys seem to have more depth and a whirlwind of hidden emotions that immediately draw you to them and captivate you.

Sam @ Realm of Fiction said...

I just finished Pushing the Limits and loved it so much! Plus it made me cry my heart out, which typically doesn't happen with me and books. Perfect timing for this character interview! :D Aren't Noah and Echo just the best? I love that neither of them picked each other for their favourite person - that they both love their siblings so much. Man... I'm about to get all emotional again. ;)

Tayte Hunter said...

Hmm.....bad boys. Sometimes good boys are too good to be true.

Also, accidently did both new and old follower. I'm an old follower. sorry!

Ashley Evans said...
