Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The first time Isaiah lays eyes on Rachel, she is climbing out of her white Mustang GT, ready to race. “Angel,” he thinks, looking at her glowing blonde hair, fine features, and expensive clothes. But why would a girl like her be out in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by a rough, swindling crowd of guys? Isaiah wants to protect her, even though she is obviously out of his league. For her part, Rachel has stepped far from her comfort zone. The only girl in a family with four older boys, Rachel generally shies away from the world, suffering debilitating panic attacks. But she loves the dangerous thrill of racing her car, and this is the first time she has driven out to distant, dark roads just to get in a good race. It seems like a bad idea, but Isaiah has her back. Fans of the Romeo and Juliet style of romance, where the power of love overrides all obstacles, will love this entry into the Pushing the Limits series. In this fourth book, characters from earlier stories brush against the central drama, and although new readers might feel moments of confusion, the novel still stands alone. Highly recommended for readers who enjoy the books of Simone Elkeles and Abbi Glines. Grades 9-12. --Diane Colson

I loved Pushing the Limits it is one of the few contemporary books on my favorite shelf and I was eagerly awaiting Crash Into You because it combines a lot of my favorite things; cars, racing, and swoony boys with problems. Let me tell you this book did not disappoint!

I have a small confession I still haven’t read Dare You To, the book is on my shelf it just keeps getting pushed to the backburner. I don’t think having not read Dare You To took away from Crash Into You though. Each of the books in this series can be read as stand alones.

At the beginning of Crash Into You Isaiah is still hurting over how Beth treated him in Dare You To. He is living with Noah and barely getting by, to make rent Isaiah decides to race for a rather shady character. It is at the race that Isaiah meets Rachel.

Rachel is a rich girl who, from the outside, has a perfect life. Gorgeous car, perfect family, it’s a wonderful lie. Rachel suffers from panic attacks, has 5 very protective brothers, and is the replacement for a daughter who died of cancer. I honestly thought Rachel was worse off then Isaiah and that is saying something!

Rachel + Isaiah = Perfection. Their relationship shouldn’t work, they are from two very different worlds but their shared passion for cars and racing binds them together and I felt like despite their opposite upbringings the two felt natural.

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention Abby in this review. As perfect as Isaiah and Rachel were it was Abby that became a scene stealer. That girl has some serious s*** going on and I respected that she didn’t make any apologies about her job or her quirkiness. I really want Abby to get her own book although solving her problems is definitely going to challenge McGarry!

Now to the cars.

Katie McGarry, I love you. I really, really do. Have you ever read a book where you find yourself copying what they're doing in the book? Like when they smirk, you smirk; when they nod their heads you do as well? Yeah, this was totally happening to me while reading Crash Into You...while I was on a bus to New York. Needless to say, I'm glad it wasn't a full bus because that could've been embarrassing. This is one of those series that keep getting better with each book and it makes me want them to never ever ever ever end. She is a fantastic story teller with some of the best, most addicting characters, ever. I'm in love with them all but I agree with her, Isaiah's story is probably my favorite.

Who knew he would find love again after Beth shattered his heart but have no fear, it happens and it's even better than I could've imagined. You know that saying opposites attract? Yeah, on the outside, this saying totally fits Isaiah and Rachel. He's covered in tattoos, has piercings and dresses like 'thug' while Rachel is from a rich area, whose dressed in nice clothes, expensive jewelry and didn't have to buy her car. But as for them, on the inside, they are more alike than you would've ever thought. He, who is very experienced with the opposite sex (not relationships though) and she, who has yet to be kissed by a boy. What a strange pairing, right? But oh my gosh, they are meant to be together and it will have you fanning yourself while reading. I am not even kidding you.

Rachel gets in trouble, lots of trouble actually, but while she could've let Isaiah get himself arrested, she saved him. She didn't have to especially for a guy she didn't even know, one who looked like trouble but she couldn't help herself. That was the start of something special.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By A Reading Nurse on July 23, 2014
Format: Hardcover
A lot of people believe the Pushing the Limits series is one of the best YA contemporary series out there. I wouldn't say it was one of my favorites, but one that I enjoy and will continue picking up as they are released. Things these last few weeks have been pretty hectic for me. I started my first nursing job and after a week was offered an administrative role as well. After coming home from training and being mentally drained, I needed a book that I would enjoy and that I could get lost in easily. And Crash Into You was exactly that book.

I had been a big fan of Isaiah in the last 2 books and really wanted him to have a happy ending. So I was excited to find out that this book was about him. I enjoyed finding out more about Isaiah and to read about his story. There is just something about a young man with depth and a troubled past that I like rooting for.

Rachel is a new character to this series and one that I was torn on. I just couldn't get invested to her story As a medical professional I could not condone her keeping her anxiety attacks secret. I understood why she was doing it in relation to the story, but I just found myself shaking my head every time it was mentioned instead of sympathizing with her. However I did really enjoy her stepping out of her box and doing something crazy like drag racing.

The story as a whole was very enjoyable. Predictable - but enjoyable. I look forward to picking up the next book!

Crash Into You by Katie McGarry:
Book Three of the Pushing the Limits series
Publisher: Harlequin TEEN
Publication Date: November 26, 2013
Rating: 3 stars
Source: ARC sent by the publisher

Summary (from Goodreads):

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.

What I Liked:

This book was easily one of my most anticipated contemporary reads of 2013. Of course, Dare You To was as well, but both of these books are 2013 releases (craziness! Katie McGarry is a machine!). I knew that I just HAD to read Isaiah's story.
