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.
Let me first start by saying I feel so blessed to have received an advanced copy of this book! Thank YOUUUUU LORD! 🙂
What I really love about Katie McGarry’s books is the fact that her characters have characters. And they are real. Everything is real. Pushing the Limits left me raw and emotional and Noah and Echo will forever be remembered by me. Dare You To with Ryan and Beth as the MCs gave me lots of feels (even if I was not much of a fan of Beth per se).,BUT Crash Into You gave me lots of swoon and a car crash course! Haha. I always wanted to know more about cars but no matter what I do it seems like I have my limits stuck to just knowing how to drive and gassing up and when to have my oil changed.
Back to the main point, Crash Into You is a really good read. It’s the kind of read that made me crave to read it back whenever I had to stop. Sort of addicting. 🙂 It was nice to get inside the head of one of the most cliche’d characters, the punk/drug user blah. Isaiah looks like one but he really isn’t. I kind of liked the part that all of it was just a front…that he really isn’t an addict…and that inside, he really is a good guy. And there’s Rachel. Her family situation is really different from a normal one. But if you ask me, it was not nonfixable..Anyway, I liked her character, especially when she starts to reveal who she really is, and she starts to have real friends… Then whenever she and Isaiah are together, it’s all twinkle and sparks! The ending was not what you expected things to end, well it certainly was what I didn’t expect..but it was a real good ending! Perfect actually.
So I won’t spoil anything to you guys, the only things you should know is this book’s is worth your time and it’s really really good. Isaiah will take you on a ride! 🙂
