My Swoon for this week comes from:

Crash Into You
(Pushing the Limits #3)

Katie McGarry

First - The Blurb:

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.

Second - The Swoon:

"Kiss me."

Isaiah doesn't wait for my answer. Instead his lips meet mine and his arms wrap around my body. All the hesitancy I felt the first night we kissed evaporates like mist on the heels of a summer storm. Within seconds, out mouths open, and Isaiah slips his tongue against mine. I get lost, liking the way my body curves around his, liking the way my hands explore as if they have a mind of their own, and loving how Isaiah grips my hair while tracing my spine.

Tingles and shock waves and earthquakes and hurricanes. All of it takes place at the same time as our mouths move not nearly fast enough. Nothing seems fast enough. The closer I become, the closer Isaiah presses, and the more he presses, the more I want to crawl inside and live in this delicious world of warmth and fantastic hunger.

Third - My Thoughts:

I read Crash Into You for my February Jumble Your Genre Reading Challenge. You can read my thoughts here.

  7. Holy moly I loved that scene!!! I actually have read Crash Into You but it has taken a while with school and everything to get a review written. Ah Isaiah! I honestly love Crash Into You as much as Pushing the Limits!

    School here for me is good. I just had to give a speech(kill me) and now I'm basically just relaxing this next week until break. Break for me starts the 8th so this upcoming Friday and then I start on the 17th again.

    Great swoon!

  8. Oh I'm so glad you loved this Marilyn! Isaiah is so swoon-worthy!!!
