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.

Ope’s Opinion:   As always Katie McGarry knows how to write a book that captures you on page one and keeps your attention through to the end.  

The story made progress by seeing things from alternating point of view of Rachel and Isaiah.  Beth, Ryan, Logan and others make an appearance in this book.  It is good to see some of their relationships move along.

This book has similar angst as her other books.  There seems to be a common thread in her books of one person coming from a family of privilege and another from a difficult family.   They meet and fall in love.  The other common link in her books is the constant use of the “f” word.  I understand that it is part of the vocabulary for some people, but it is over used in her books.

Rating:  Four Chairs – I like this book so much I know several friends to share it with.
