CRASH INTO YOU by Katie McGarry
I outline the tattoo, enjoying its beauty. “I love this one.”
In the beams of street light scattered into the dark bedroom by the slatted blinds, I watch as Isaiah’s eyes melt into silver. “It’s my favorite,” he says. “One day I’ll get a tattoo for you.”
Warmth explodes in my chest, in awe that he would mark himself for me. “You don’t have to.”
“I will.” His fingers trace my cheek and chills of pleasure run down my spine. “It’s what I do. Each tattoo represents the only happy memories I’ve had. And you, Rachel, you’re the happiest.”
Why is this quote fantastic?
Swoon worthy, that’s why! ^_^ It shows how deep in these two are already, with each other. The words that Isaiah says, they melt my heart. For a boy who’s been in the foster system since he was a kid, happy memories do not come often. Isaiah is just one of those people who just can’t seem to catch a break…from disappointments and heartaches…from the bad that life has to offer. And so for him to consider Rachel as his happiest memory, well, that ought to tell you something, right? Something good? ^__^
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.
