Character Interview + Contest: Noah and Echo from Pushing the Limits

Today, I'm very excited to share with you an interview with Noah and Echo, the main characters in Katie McGarry's absolutely stunning debut Pushing the Limits. This is a book that had me completely gripped and gutted me more than once, yet also had some seriously hot romance and kisses in it. If it isn't already, make sure this one is on your list.

And to entice you to wanting it, I not only am giving you an all access pass to Noah and Echo, but also have the chance for you to win an ARC of the book so you can get to reading!

Kari: Welcome, Echo and Noah. Let's start this off easy. Tell my readers about yourselves in 3 words.

Echo: Hi Kari! We are so excited to be here!

Noah: S'up.

Echo: Three words? I would have to say I'm an artist, a sister, and a friend.

Noah: And she's a wicked pool player.

Echo: Whatever. Your turn, Noah.

Noah: I'm loyal, a brother, and a risk-taker.

Kari: Your first real introduction with each other doesn't go so well, though I admit, it made me laugh a little. No offense. So with that, what was your second impression of each other?

Noah laughs. Echo's cheeks turn red.

Echo: You were such a jerk in that office.

Noah shrugs: You were too easy to mess with.

Noah turns serious: Second impression? That she was hiding something. Something big.

Echo: That he had the power to ruin what was left of my life.

Kari: Let's get to the really good stuff now. First, what's it like to kiss the other?

Echo chokes.

Noah lips slide into a mischievous grin and leans forward: I'll answer this one.

Echo slaps Noah's arm. Echo: You will not.

Noah: What? She asked. I'm just doing the polite thing by answering. Anyway, kissing's like my body melts into hers. There's no world. No disruptions. No chaos. Everything becomes silent--still and all of the problems that never made sense suddenly become clear. Kissing Echo? It's like coming home.

Echo weaves her fingers with his.

Echo: That's exactly what it's like.

Noah: And unbelievably hot.

Echo chokes again yet nods in agreement.

Kari laughs.

Kari: Yep, reading it was pretty dang hot too. If you two hadn't met in the circumstances you did, do you think you still would have ended up together?

Noah and Echo warily glance at each other.

Echo: I would like to think so. I can't imagine being with anyone else.

Noah: Yes. Definitely. Echo was made for me and I was made for her. No doubt we would have ended up together.

 Kari: I think you might be right, and I think it's time to wrap this up since the rest of my burning questions are totally spoilers. So one last question, without spoilers of course: Which scene was the most intense for each of you?

 Echo: Watching Noah bolt from the school and run to Isaiah's car. I felt like I couldn't breathe as I questioned if he would make it in time.

Noah: Holding her hand in the hospital while wondering if she was going to be okay. That was pure hell.

Thank you, Noah and Echo, for taking the time talk with me.
