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.
I have read and enjoyed Katie McGarry’s Pushing the Limits series so I was really excited to continue the story with Isaiah and Rachel’s story. I was looking forward to a wild ride.
I loved the opposites attract romance in the story with Rachel being this good girl with a love for racing fast cars and Isaiah being this tough street wise guy with this soft, selfless side to him. The interaction between the two of them was engaging, learning their secrets and even though they both came from different backgrounds they had this underlining connection for fast cars and racing that ultimately opened up their relationship to so much more.
Isaiah and Rachel had to deal with more situations then their growing connection, more trying dangerous situations that brought up the stakes within the story which I liked. There wasn’t a easy obvious solution to the trouble they found themselves in. Both of them had to give something of themselves and in that learning even more about the other and growing the reluctant bond that formed between them.
Rachel’s family, wow what a family with their blinding sense and convictions. They were defiantly a huge obstacle for Rachel and I wished she stood up more for herself with them. Isaiah had his obstacles to face as well putting himself on the line for someone else as well as opening his feelings and sharing those feelings. Being the guarded person that he was, it was the ultimate struggle for him. Their struggles were totally relatable for me. I feel we all go through struggles opening ourselves to others and family with the fear of not being accepted.
I did enjoy reading Crash Into You by Katie McGarry. Isaiah and Rachel’s story had a steamy romance filled with dire situations, struggles and growth. I look forward to continue with the series.
