Crash into You (Pushing the Limits #3) by Katie McGarry
Publication Date: November 26th, 2013
Genre: Young Adult Contemporary Romance
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.

My review:
I have to admit, after reading about Noah and Echo, Beth and Ryan, I sincerely doubted that Isaiah's story could come anywhere close to the level of adoration I had for those stories. Never have I been more happy to be proven absolutely wrong.

Isaiah and Rachel's story was exhilarating and so different from the other books of the series. An action packed world of street racing coupled with some off the charts chemistry kept me glued at every turn. The interactions between Isaiah and not only Rachel but all the other players in this novel showed me all the depths of his character and of his heart that I was only able to glimpse in prior novels. Isaiah is now my favorite character of this entire series. He has so much strength and depth and, yes, flaws, but he just seems so overwhelmingly real that I feel (and wish) that he could just step right off the page.

That being said...I liked Rachel as a match for him, but I didn't love her as much as I loved Isaiah. I found it hard to sympathize with her at the beginning, but she definitely grew on me as the novel progressed.

Crash Into You is a series novel that can be read on its own. Isaiah captures your heart on each and every page with kindness and palpable sexiness with every beat. Katie McGarry has given us another fabulously written and wonderfully entertaining novel.
