How did I get the book? Netgalley, thank you Harlequin
Synopsis: The girl with straight A’s, 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.
200words (or less) review: I preferred Crash Into You to the previous book in the series (Dare You To), partly because it’s Isiah’s story and I already loved him from the previous installments but also because I really connected to Rachel.
The attraction between both is there from the beginning of the story and it doesn’t take long for the sparks to fly. What I liked about this was that Rachel and Isiah have a relationship (granted a very rollercoaster one) for most of the story. As the reader I felt much more invested in them, consequently I’d be saying thing like: “no don’t! just listen! arghs!” out loud. Thankfully not in public. 😉
Who I also liked was Abby. Characters from previous books also make an appearance, which fans will love, but Abby really rocks. I hope she gets her own story. My only complaint is that at 450+ pages Crash Into You is a long book and at times you feel it. I wasn’t bored but occasionally I thought the story could have been tighter.
If you haven’t been pulled into Katie McGarry’s world yet then don’t hold out any longer. She’s going to be around for a long time.
