Book review: Crash Into You by Katie McGarry

Crash into you
Author: Katie McGarry
Series: Pushing the limits
Pages: 474
Pre-order: Amazon/ B&N/ TBD
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.


There are no words to describe how addictive Katie McGarry’s writing is! Crash into you is not the exception. This is the story of Isaiah, the boy with the tattoos and earrings that we came to love when we read Pushing the limits and Dare you to. And though we had to wait until the 3rd book to read about him. I swear to you it worth the wait!

While you’re reading Crash into you, there’s no time to breath, no time to eat, no time to blink because the plot, the characters, the writing… everything is so perfect and stunningly beautiful that you just have the choice to love it. I wasn’t the biggest fan of Isaiah in the previous books, but again, the author did an excellent job creating a story so deep and real and I fell for him badly. 
On the other side, Rachel, the female main character was strong in a way some girls aren’t. Yes, she was hurt and she seemed weak, but Katie McGarry explained it so rightly and made us see how strong a broken girl can be without being a kick-ass, but being sweet and trying to make everyone happy. 
The secondary characters –Rachel’s family, Abby, Logan, Noah, Echo, Beth, Ryan. They were right where they belonged. And they were a very important part of the plot.
The love story… oh, the love story. It was sweet and hot, and deep and cute. For God’s sake! Katie McGarry is the best writer of contemporary romance ever. 
Sadly, this time the love was almost-too-fast. It's not insta-love, but this time was faster than PTL and DYT. It doesn't bother me, though, the relationship between Isaiah and Rachel has all the brillance from Katie's previous books.
I can’t say anything else because all is the same. I loved Crash into you. Every little line of this book was perfect, and adrenaline rush, a swoon-worthy romance, incredible characters and the best writing style ever!

You know , I still think Dare you to is the best book of this year. I loved it to pieces, but Crash into you didn't disappoint. If it's not the best of this year, it's one of the best of this genre. This is a must read and I'm sure you'll love it.



  1. This is a series I think I really need to add to the TBR list, I've read some really great reviews for all the books, so maybe it'll one of those contemporaries I love!

  2. I absolutely loved DYT. I did enjoy this one though. But you're right. It's not my favorite. EIther way, I adore this series and cannot wait for the next installment!

  3. I have to say I really wasn't an Isaiah fan either! Especially from Dare You To, I don't know, I just didn't particularly like him that much. But this book showed things from his POV, and he's definitely won me over! (I must say I like Ryan better though haha)

    I hadn't really considered it before, but now that I think about it, the romance was quite fast. Definitely not instalove, but close to. Oh well. I still liked it.

  4. I preferred DYT because Ryan is very much my kind of guy but the writing for this book did make it nearly impossible to put down-I kept trying to take breaks to do other tasks but swiftly returning until I finished it.
