Crash Into You by Katie McGarry

Release Date: Out now!

Publisher: Harlequin Teen

Pages: 464pgs

The Story

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.

The Review

A big thanks to the publisher on netGalley for providing me with a review copy of this book!

From the very first book in the Pushing the Limits series I have loved the author's writing not to mention all of her characters - main or supporting ones, and while I still don't know how she manages to write these amazing stories, but I know one thing is for sure: Katie McGarry is definitely one of my favourite contemporary writers by far! She just nails each and every book of hers!

CRASH INTO YOU was such a thrill ride for me and while I wouldn't necessarily say that it was my favourite, favourite book in the series (really it's hard to decide because all of the books are written so brilliantly), but boy it was pretty close and SO GOOD too! Now initially it took me some time to warm up to our new leading lady, Rachel, and be immersed with her story this time round (even though she definitely turns into such a lovely, bad-ass girl later in the book), but when her perspective is switched and paired up with Isaiah's perspective . . . then everything else in the book soon becomes perfection within itself and honestly Isaiah was what I loved most out of everyone else. He was the driving force of the entire book I thought!

Oh Isaiah! I have loved him from the get-go of this series and while I wasn't entirely sure what he could be capable of with his own book (especially since his heart was broken in the previous sequel), but now I think out of all of the guys I have met in this series so far, he's definitely in my top lists of favourite boy characters of all time. Just boy . . .  I love him and that's probably because he reminds me so much of Alex from Simone Elkeles's Perfect Chemistry which is bonus for us fangirls if I do say so myself. Isaiah just has so much compassionate and protective hotness in this book (much more than I ever expected from him too), so just you wait until you get to know him some more and see the flaming hot chemistry he shares with Rachel . . . just you wait girls . . . you're going to love him a hundred times more than you do already!

Overall, CRASH INTO YOU contains a lot of frustrating and over-the-edge type of characters (especially with Rachel's family), but with the driving force of Isaiah and Rachel's newfound love . . . everything in this book is totally worth the wait!

The Rating
5/5 stars

  1. I think this was recommended on Simone Elkeles' blog and oh was it great! Rich, sick girl loves to race cars ---meets bad, tattoo foster kid and against all odds they fall in love. I know girls and reluctant readers will love this book. I am looking forward to the next one!
