From acclaimed author Katie McGarry comes an explosive new tale of a good girl with a reckless streak, a street-smart guy with nothing to lose, and a romance forged in the fast lane

The girl with straight As, designer clothes and the perfect life-that’s who people expect Rachel Young to be. So the private-school junior keeps secrets from her wealthy parents and overbearing brothers…and she’s just added two more to the list. One involves racing strangers down dark country roads in her Mustang GT. The other? Seventeen-year-old Isaiah Walker-a guy she has no business even talking to. But when the foster kid with the tattoos and intense gray eyes comes to her rescue, she can’t get him out of her mind.

Isaiah has secrets, too. About where he lives, and how he really feels about Rachel. The last thing he needs is to get tangled up with a rich girl who wants to slum it on the south side for kicks-no matter how angelic she might look.

But when their shared love of street racing puts both their lives in jeopardy, they have six weeks to come up with a way out. Six weeks to discover just how far they’ll go to save each other

*Warning – Contains spoilers from Dare You To*

 

I have been impatiently waiting to get my hands on this book ever since I read Dare You To. I couldn’t wait to read Isaiah’s story and see how everything would work out since he didn’t end up with Beth. I’m happy to say that Crash Into You exceeded my very high expectations, Katie McGarry just keeps getting better, this book is by far my favorite book in this series and that’s saying a lot since I LOVED Pushing the Limits and Dare You To.
I must admit that I didn’t really know what to expect from this book because we didn’t really get to know Isaiah that good in the previous books. We get to know Isaiah a lot better in this story. I knew in the previous that he had been through a lot more than any seventeen year old should, but I didn’t know exactly what had weighed him down until I read this book.
Isaiah is such a strong character, he lets the world see his tough side but behind that exterior, he is actually incredibly caring and loyal. Rachel also puts on a front for her family because she feels like she needs to be someone else and hide who she truly is in order to make her family happy.
I know some people were sad that Isaiah and Beth didn’t end up together but I was glad that they didn’t. And after reading this book I’m even happier, because Isaiah and Rachel are absolutely perfect for each other and Rachel is such a sweetheart. They were exactly what the other person needed.
McGarry is a genius, she knows exactly how to hook you from the very first page and never let you go. I can guarantee that I will read anything she writes, and I’m pretty sure that I will fall in love with it, just as she has made me fall in love with these characters.

  1. I definitely agree that this was one magnificent book! At first I was a bit apprehensive about it not being Isaiah and Beth, but Rachel and Isaiah certainly work much better 🙂
