Book Review: Crash Into You

CRASH INTO YOU BY KATIE MCGARRY


Crash into You (Pushing the Limits, #3) 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.

Hardcover, 474 pages

Expected publication: November 26th 2013 by Harlequin Teen 
I've been dying for the book! But of course I never expected so many declines, as usual I go on Netgallery and I find books to read just a wee bit early before its release however for Crash Into You it didn't come easy. 
I was declined through numerous publishers from different country, now what was odd was being decline for this particular book because I've read Dare You To from one of the publishers on Netgallery. 
But I'll went on Edelweiss, a newbie on this site I found the book and submitted my request and gritted my teeth and nerves for weeks waiting on a response. When I got the email as usual, I was half thinking "I'm not going to get it" but that email on that day light me up, I was approved to read Crash Into You!!!!! 
Okay time for the review and my Meow . . . Meow . . . Meow talk,

Review
From the start we knew Isiaiah just barely expect we knew two things, one he was Noah's best friend and two he was undeniably in love with Beth. But after Beth found her happy ending, Isaiah thought he was meant to be alone and no one would ever be good for him or the other way around until . . . Rachel came along. 
Rachel is idolize by her parents, living in a constant spotlight and someone's shadow Rachel just wanted to be herself. Rachel's most favorite thing to do was drive endlessly and be around cars, but a little thrill of danger she is lead to the middle of an drag race and gambling she is out of her league. 
The only person that is on her side is Isaiah who clearly see her being a person in the wrong place and the time . . . Rachel might as well be the deer in the headlights. 
What will this bring for Isaiah and Rachel, when they own money?
This is a bundle of Kittens for this one! I've been dying to know if Isaiah would ever find someone or was Katie going to leave him behind but Isaiah is too well known so there's has to be a story. It's a story that we see the softer side of Isaiah and a deeper side of him along with learning about Rachel just as he's learning about her.

Sighs and swoon! We finally really meet Isaiah for the first time, behind the earrings and tattoos he's kind and deep. After the poor heartbreak he gets from Beth although Beth knew that they weren't right for each other but Isaiah had hoped. But now there's a new girl coming into his life and her name is Rachel.

We never met Rachel before and I think we never expected what her story is, living by someone's shadow and being in the spotlight. However Rachel is no ordinary girl, she loves CARS! How many girls actually like Cars? Well she does and beside living under a shadow and spotlight, being around Cars is hers and hers only. 

Drag racing and gambling never mixed, but that was the life out on the street with cars. However sweet Rachel got herself in a deep pile of litter that Isaiah had the means to drag her out of it but that was the easy part, the hard part was obtaining money Rachel under no means wants to pay back her loss from the race because she never really bet. Isaiah has the urge to help her out and begun to care for her. 

However Isaiah was still battling his own problems, being under 18 and under the system the one thing he never wanted to deal with was his mom. Being left behind as a child and beaten up by fosters, Isaiah believes that he couldn't trust anyone. 

Rachel for sure led two different lives, one being the girl that is clearly being shadowed by someone who isn't here and chasing the endless highways. But will she be able to keep both lives apart or will someone let the cat out of the bag? 

Isaiah and Rachel are having to rely on each other and work together to pay off the debt thus cutting off all ties with drag racing. But still have each other in the end, and I'm not going to say what happens in the end but its a real shocker!
