Review: Crash into You 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 (GoodReads).

Crash into You (Pushing the Limits, #3)PEOPLE this companion novel to Pushing the Limits is just as fab as Dare You To. These books are fun and brimming with sexy dudes. What more could you ask for? Oh, thats right, a good story. Luckily, that exists in Crash Into You by Katie McGarry as well.

Originality: 4. This is basically "Uptown Girl" by Billy Joel, plus street racing.
Absurdity: 2/10. This score reflects whether or not you get behind this almost insta-love, wrong side of the tracks story. I support it, but if you don't buy it, this book is going to be hard to swallow.
Level of Paranormal Romance: 9. ISAIAH! He is swoon- worthy. Get on board.
Level of Harry Potterness: 5. These books are saved from being pure guilty pleasures by the nuanced  way McGarry deals with the foster care system and teenagers in need of counseling. Snaps!!

This book comes out tomorrow- treat yo' self!

  1. I loved this one and I'm so freaking excited for West's story next. But I also want MORE LOGAN and some Abby.

  2. How do they make lying in the backseat of a car look so comfy?


Comments? Heck ya!
