BookWhisperer Rating: 

The girl with straight A's and the perfect life—that's who people expect Rachel Young to be. So the private school junior keeps secrets from her wealthy family…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 after the foster kid with the tattoos and intense gray eyes comes to her rescue, she can't get him out of her mind. 

The last thing Isaiah needs is to get tangled up with a rich girl who wants to slum it on the south side for kicks. But when their shared love of street racing puts their lives in jeopardy, Isaiah and Rachel will have six weeks to come up with a way out. Six weeks to discover just how far they'll go to save each other.
From the start of the Pushing the Limits series I have felt a very distant attachment to Isaiah, but he always seemed just out of my reach. While we of course know of him from his steady presence in the first two installments he is private, dark, and mysterious leaving his character shrouded in the shadows at every turn. Crash Into You will shed all of those shadows, and truly give us the ability to learn his character in vivid detail. I felt a strange bond with his character, and feel as though I know him deeper than anyone else in the series. Pushing the Limits has been about survival, and the ability to prevail in the tragic lives these characters have been given. Noah, Beth, and Isaiah are a pack they have protected and harbored together through thick and thin. PTL as a whole has been THEIR story, and the conclusion of Isaiah's journey really left me wondering where we would go from here. This installment is a marker for this series, because the next story will definitely turn a page. Rest assured there were several new developments here that open possibilities for futures stories. While we are definitely not seeing the end of PTL series as a whole this does put this mismatched family of unfortunate kids to rest. I hope to see more of there futures through the next installments, but it was an encouraging ride thus far.
