Series: Pushing the Limits, #3
Publication: November 26th 2013 by Harlequin Teen
From acclaimed author Katie McGarry comes an explosive new tale of a romance forged in the fast lane
The girl with straight A's and the perfect life—that's who people expect Rachel Young to be. So the private school junior keeps secrets from her wealthy family…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 after the foster kid with the tattoos and intense gray eyes comes to her rescue, she can't get him out of her mind.
The last thing Isaiah needs is to get tangled up with a rich girl who wants to slum it on the south side for kicks. But when their shared love of street racing puts their lives in jeopardy, Isaiah and Rachel will have six weeks to come up with a way out. Six weeks to discover just how far they'll go to save each other.
I can't decide if I liked Crash Int You more than Dare You To or not because I really really liked both of them for different reasons! Crash Into You is definitely a contender for the favourite spot in the series.
The main character, Rachel, was so relatable and easy to like. She suffers from panic attacks which I hardly ever come across in my reading so it was cool to see that and I'm sure those with anxiety will appreciate it. I loved how how quiet and awkward she was, it was nice to read something different than all the loud outspoken sassy snarky girls I usually read about these days in fantasy books. She felt very real and because of that I couldn't help but enjoy reading about her.
Of course I still loved Isaiah. He was one of my favourite characters in the previous books so it was great to have in him the spotlight for once and learn more about his backstory and what he's going through.
We do get to see Noah and Echo in Crash Into You, more than we saw them in Dare You To but I felt like Noah was acting out of character a bit. We also get to see Beth but I wanted more of her.
The plot of this one was more more dramatic than the other books. There was some super cute moments here and there and couldn't help but smile while reading but the stakes were a lot higher in this one compared to the others which I liked. It made for a more engaging read and I wanted to find out what was going to happen.
I was happy with the ending but I wouldn't say no to more about Rachel and Isaiah in the future. They have a very interesting dynamic because they are so different but at the same time they are very similar.
I had a lot of fun reading, like I also do with Katie McGarry books, and I can't wait to pick up the next one!
Thanks for reading,
