Sang Sorenson struggles with her growing feelings when the Academy boys take her in and draw her closer into their world. They work together to uncover the true secrets happening at Ashley Waters High School, where Principal Hendricks will stop at nothing to take them all down.
Adding to their complications, Nathan’s father shows up, and he’s just as ruthless and violent as ever, beating up on Nathan. Sang offers Nathan refuge in her home, but Marie is fed up with the boys. She wants them out--all of them—and wants them to take Sang with them. Where will Sang go? What will happen to Nathan? And what about Mr. Hendrick’s spies, watching all of them?
Kota, Victor, Silas, Nathan, Gabriel, Luke and North will have to focus to get out of this mess, but with Sang assisting them, they’re struggling to keep control. They all promised not to make a move on Sang unless she initiates, but the tension is driving them all to distraction. With the help of Dr. Green and Mr. Blackbourne, they will have to stay strong and engaged. But A first kiss is imminent, and will cost them all more than they could ever have imagined.

I had been looking forward to getting this far into the series because it was released that something major would happen in this book—Sang’s first kiss!
Push and Shove had a nice balance of things—action, suspense, mystery, and romance. Yes—we actually get some romance! The boys and Sang are still working towards some mysteries that are plaguing Ashley Waters—the Vice Principal is still missing, the Principal is still hovering, Mr. Blackbourne is still the target of an unidentified bomber, and Sang and the boys are still trying to figure out the identify of the masked man who warned her against the boys. Add in the fact that Nathan’s abusive father makes and appearance and Sang is starting to cave into the boys’ affections, and you’ve got yourself and extremely engaging book. I literally could not put it down if I wanted to—there was so much at stake in this book it wasn’t even funny.
As I mentioned, Sang gets her first kiss in this book! I’m not going to say who, but it was just as deliciously awesome as I was expecting. It literally made me giddy. I am really interested to see which of her first kisses will be my favorite, and I definitely think that this one will give the others a run for their money! Moreover with the boys, we see more of Dr. Green and Mr. Blackbourne. I thought that this was especially great because they seem to have been in the background as compared to the other guys, and I loved seeing more of their characters in this installment.
Push and Shove was definitely my favorite installment thus far romance-wise. It opened some new doors, both romantically and with regards to plot and action, and I can’t wait to see what happens next.
