Publisher Comments:

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. 

Review:

"From the outside, Rachel Young seems perfect, but she feels like a mess — prone to panic attacks and sure she's a poor replacement for her older sister, who died of leukemia. Rachel tries to 'feign sunshine and rainbows' so no one looks too closely, not even her twin brother. Isaiah is her total opposite, a poor kid from the foster care system who looks fiercely unapproachable: he's all tattoos, piercings, and glares. When their shared loved of fast cars brings them together and puts them at risk, they find the one person who might understand their secrets and love them anyway. Rachel and Isaiah tell their story in alternating chapters, and while there's plenty of family drama and car talk, what's really effective is the sweet and sexy romance between them (the author's fans will recognize some familiar faces, too). McGarry (Dare You To) loads the book with emotional and physical dangers, but her final plot twist veers into melodrama, distracting from the main story of two 17-year-olds trying to find a way to be together. Ages 14 — up. Agent: Kevan Lyon, Marsal Lyon Literary Agency." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Noah had his happy ending (in Pushing the Limits), Beth had her happy ending (in Dare You To) I very much wanted Isaiah to have a happy ending of his own.


Isaiah has had a rough background, he has been through a lot.
Rachel has a great life or so it would seem...


Everything looks perfect on the outside of Rachel's life but it's anything but.
Her mother sees her only as a replacement for her older sister Colleen, who passed away from cancer and has Rachel speak on Colleen's behalf at the charity events that their mother holds for Colleen. Everyone is supposed to love and miss Colleen but Rachel don't in fact Rachel hates her older sister or more to the point she hates cancer that has taken her sister from them and tore up the once happy family apart.
Rachel's older brothers only add to her growing problems she has by being overly protective.
On top of all that the anxiety attacks that her family thought has gone away with the therapy has started up again but to cover them up she acts like nothing is wrong.
To cope with the stress she takes an interest in cars and motors, and becomes addicted to driving fast in cars. Speed isn't the only thing that she becomes addicted to, she also can't seem to stay away from Isaiah. With piercings and tattoos she knows her family won't accept him. But what brings them together will cost them everything.


All the characters were great.
I couldn't help but feel for Isaiah after how Dare You To left off.
Rachel was not only a pretty girl she was also smart.
Abby was another one that I really liked.
Crash Into You switches from Isaiah's point of view to Rachel's.
I love all of their background stories. This series could go on and on and I wouldn't mind!


Katie McGarry has a way of writing that sucks me into the stories and l love that about a book. Bring on Take Me On!
