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.

Crash into You is part of Pushing the Limit series. Although the first book is still my favorite because it has the most angst, I have to say reading this third book was fairly enjoyable. I do have to mention that I did find it a bit predictable.

In Crash into You, we get our story of our hardcore Isaiah. He is hard on the edge but a sweetheart from the inside, my type of guy J He is daring and caring. We learn that not only is he street smart but he is truthfully a loyal friend. Seeing that his friends are moving on in life, he is trying to make it on his own. On the path of finding his way, Isaiah finds getting himself drag into an illegal car racing. There he meets a girl that may just make his life a bit more complicated. But not everything in life is easy, right?

Rachel is the girl Isaiah meets at one of the car racing event. There he learns that her family is just awful which made her into this insecure little thing. The only thing that she is able to enjoy is racing her car. For the most part of the book, I felt sad for her. Rachel used to have an older sister who died from Leukemia. And now, Rachel is pretty much her replacement. Her “job” is to try to live up to her sister’s standard to make her mother happy. Unfortunately, she suffers from anxiety and she is completely different from her sister. The poor thing has to suffer hearing it from everyone of her family. I just love how she finally learns to stand up on her own with Isaiah’s help. I love how these two are able to share the love of cars and yet learn from each other.

One of the reasons why I love McGarry’s characters is because we can always learn from them. They always grow into wonderful people. As a fan of the series, I am glad we finally are able to learn more of Isaiah and his journey to become this man he always thought out to be. Although this is part of a series, this can be read as a standalone. So if you are looking for some car actions and romance, this is the book for you!
