Crash Into You by Katie McGarry
Release Date: November 26 2013
Isaiah, Isaiah, Isaiah. If you've read Pushing the Limits (see our full review) or Dare You To (see our full review) you know that our man Isaiah is a piece of work. He's a foster kid who has been depending only on himself for far too long. After being the smallest kid in group homes he's made sure that, now that he's 17, he's as tough and intimidating to look at as possible. No one touches him and that's just how he likes it.
Rachel Young, on the other hand, is the type of girl who has always had a crowd around to protect her. She's the youngest in a family with a lot of brothers and a lot to lose. But all the safety nets in the world can't keep the panic attacks away. However, letting her family know that she's suffering the attacks would only increase their scrutiny, so Rachel's drowning in plain sight.
Isaiah and Rachel are two people who would not make sense to the outside world, but a shared passion for cars (especially Mustangs) and their immediate crazy chemistry means that for the first time they each have someone who really sees who they are. But, when the dangers of Isaiah's world start to bleed into Rachel's, will their bond be strong enough to keep them both safe?
This series is big and romantic, there are lots of high stakes situations and intense relationships. This one read the most EPIC to me, with cars, gangs and street racing in the background of Isaiah and Rachel's romance. Isaiah did not have an easy time of it, romantically in the first two books of this series, so it's nice to see him fall for a girl who actually loves him back just as much. This is one for fans of love at first sight and love battling against the world.
There is going to be at least one more book in this series (keep an eye out for West while you're reading this one) and I will definitely be anxious to see what is in store for Katie McGarry's cast of characters.
