CRASH INTO YOU

Crash into You (Pushing the Limits, #3)Book Review:  Crash Into You

Author:  Katie McGarry
Published:  November 2013
Series:  Pushing the Limits #3
Genre:  YA Contemporary

The Setting - Taken from Goodreads
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.



My Two Cents
So a girl needs a little mindless, carefree, romantic reading once in a while (aka my guilty pleasure).  Katie McGarry never disappoints when I'm in this mood.  This is the 3rd book in her Pushing the Limits series but you don't have to read the previous 2 to enjoy this one.  Or a lot of thinking.  I fell in love with Isaiah through the last 2 books so even when my blogger friends snubbed their noses at him, I knew I still  needed to read it.  And Isaiah didn't let me down.  He is very much the sweet- bad arse character I was hoping he'd be (if that's even remotely possible in real life).  But while Isaiah and Rachel were a sweet couple, they still don't hold a candle to Echo and Noah in Pushing the Limits.  Sigh...I might have to read that one again.  Still, Crash Into You was exactly what I needed in my reading schedule, something light, and fluffy, and...intricate plot - optional.  I'm giving Crash Into You 3 out of 5 stars.  While not the most original storyline, Crash Into You still manages to entertain.
