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 Thoughts: Katie McGarry just keeps getting better and better with each story she writes. I thought I was in love with the last book, Dare You To, but after reading Crash Into You I can honestly say this one has to be my favorite!
Isaiah and Rachel just have this amazing, mind-blowing chemistry that keeps you turning the pages and ignoring the fact that you have to be up for work/ school in three hours. You get sucked in completely, and nothing else matters but finishing their story. Where as her previous two books have been an emotional roller-coaster, Crash Into You is an action packed, high-stakes romance that you absolutely cannot put down!
Of course, we get to see some of the old characters which I love. Noah and Echo are back in the scene, and we also get to see some of Logan from the previous book and a little of Beth and Ryan as well. The world Mrs.McGarry has set up is realistic and fantastic and I will now read anything the woman ever writes. She's definitely made a life long fan out of me!
Bottom line? I would highly recommend this book, along with all of the others in the series, to anyone who loves a good YA novel.
