Review: Crash Into You By Katie McGarry

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.

She's done it again. I honestly don't know how with every single book, the stories get better, but they do! Oh boy do they get better.

Crash Into You has got to be one of my favorite reads this year. It was emotionally raw and like all of Katie's books, deals with real live issues. 

This is Isaiah's story. If you remember him from the first two books, you already know that he is Noah and Beth's best friend. Oh and he just so happened to have his heart broken by Beth as well. 

 We also get to meet Rachel, a beautiful and wealthy girl who suffers from extreme panic attacks. Rachel struggles with being herself and trying to make everyone in her family happy, even it it means her own happiness is on the line. She has a love for cars and its through her curiosity with street racing, that she meets Isaiah. 

Isaiah and Rachel get themselves in a big pickle when the aftermath of the street racing turns sour. 

Will they be able to go through the necessary means to save themselves? Or will they succumb to being owned by a sadistic street thug?

Crash Into You will leave you begging for more. Such a beautiful story that I know won't leave me anytime soon. 

Thank you to NetGalley and Harlequin Teen for providing me with a review copy for an honest review!
