Crash into You (Pushing the Limits #3)
by Katie McGarry
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.
Rachel is expected to be perfect. She must give straight A's, dress correctly and wear perfect clothes and never get into trouble. No one really knows what she feels underneath. Not her rich parents, her friends, or her brothers. She loves to work on cars and her passion is her Mustang GT. One night she decides to race it and ends up in a whole new world. A world she never expected. She has six weeks to figure things out as her life is in jeopardy along with Isaiah the boy she met the night of her street race. Isaiah and Rachel are worlds apart but are growing closer. Each has secrets to hide from the other but they are falling for each other. They may never get the chance to see if they have a future if all the people trying to keep them apart succeed.
I have to say I love Rachel. A girl who would rather work on cars and race than anything else. Yeah we have that in common so much. It is nice to see a female character who steps out of the normal. She may seem like a goody goody bit there is so much more to her. She will dig down and work to figure things out. She isn't afraid to get dirty and she doesn't look down on people. She is brave but at times she holds a lot in. Isaiah is the tattooed bad boy who will steal your heart. He has his own secrets but he so much wants to stand on his own. He is very protective and at times very stubborn. While they don't look like they have much in common they are wonderful together.
I really enjoyed the first book in this series. I haven't got to read the second one yet but plan to. I have to say out of the two I have read this is my favorite. I connected with the characters so much in this book. I really didn't want to put this down as I read it. From street racing, race tracks, the street and so much more there is always something going on and the story flows so well. I like Rachel when she finally opens up about what she feels and what she thinks. She may seem quiet but she finally finds her voice. It as also nice seeing Isaiah realize he cares for someone not like him. He has always had people look down on him but he in some ways did the same to people not in his lifestyle. He learns to look beneath the surface. Both of these characters along with the rest make you wish you could read their whole life story. I will say my heart stopped towards the end and I was worried. This is a fantastic book and I would recommend to anyone. If i had anything bad to say it would be that they like Fords lol.
