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.

Katie McGarry is such an amazing author that I know anything she writes is going to be nothing less than amazing.  I completely fell in love with This series after reading Dare You To.  I never read Pushing The Limits, but I think I will go back and read it just so I can head more about these amazing characters.  One thing I totally feel in love with is the cover.  I mean, just look at Isaiah!  He is so HOT!  I think we were all super excited when we found out that he was going to get his own story and possibly a HEA.  I know he totally deserves it.  
I fell in love with all the characters in Crash Into You.  You already know how I feel about Isaiah and how perfect he is. LOL  Rachel was perfect for him.  Even though they came from different worlds, they both shared a love for cars and anything fast.  So what better way of meeting each other than at a street race!  The only problem is that Rachel has never street raced before and coming from a family that treats her like fine china and has been sheltered her whole life, people take advantage of her and Isaiah, like the hero that he is, feels like he has to come to her rescue.  Rachel is super sweet and cute, but there were times where I wished she would stand up for herself more.  The whole issue with her family really annoyed me and at times I wanted to slap her brothers and her dad.  
Overall, Crash Into You was amazing and I strongly recommend this series to EVERYONE.

I've been waiting for Crash Into You for quite some time. I was so blown away by Dare You To that my expectations might have been a little higher than expected. I did enjoy Crash Into You a lot and I love that McGarry decided to incorporate Isaiah's love of cars and find him a girl that was just as car crazy as he is. Rachel was really his perfect match. You can see how easily they fit together and the chemistry just flowed. My only downfall was that Rachel was such a weak character. Yes, I understand that she's going through a lot and that her family is putting a lot of pressure on her (which let me say her family is a whole different issue), but why are they trying to push someone to be something they're not just to please one person. It is essential to the story and I understand the reasons behind it, I just wish she would have realized it sooner. Oh Isaiah, my tortured soul, how I love thee.  He's been a favorite of mine since Pushing The Limit and I'm so glad we finally got a chance to get inside his head. He truly found his other half with Rachel.

Katie Mcgarry never disappoints me with her work. I absolutely love and adore this book and its characters. After Dare You To, I think half of the female population was heartbroken for Isaiah. I just wanted to hold him and mend his shattered heart. So, when I heard about Crash Into You, I felt relieved and ecstatic, I did a happy dance and everything (no shame there) because maybe at the end, he was going to get his happily ever after.
McGarry’s writing is simply amazing. She creates such good stories that had me as a reader fully invested. The love, the problems, the family and friends are so realistic that you will find yourself emerged in the book. The book is full of surprises, with twists and turns that will have you at the edge of your seat.
I think Rachel and Isaiah’s relationship is my favorite out of the three books in the series. It’s full of romance and sweet moments. Katie McGarry really knows how to create lovable characters that will connect with you immediately. I can’t wait to read more of McGarry's work.
