I am at an utter loss for words. I'm completely mind-blown. I thought the other books in the Pushing the Limits series were great; I had no freaking clue.

We all know Isaiah; tattooed badass, unrequited lover of Beth, and druggie extraordinaire. Do we actually know him, though? I thought I knew him from the other books but I really didn't. He is a tattooed badass. He did do drugs, but not as much as we were led to believe. He loves control yet he lets loose with his love of cars and speeding. He is so sweet and caring when it comes to Rachel I want to cry at his tenderness. He is without a doubt my favorite guy from the series so far.

Rachel has a lot of crap going on in her life. She's only alive because her mother wanted a replacement for her other daughter who died of leukemia. And Rachel pretends to be her sister to keep her family happy. She pretends to like dresses, the mall, spa days, even the color purple. She pretends she doesn't have panic attacks. But she hates all of that. She hates dresses and speeches and the mall and the color purple. She loves cars. More than anyone except maybe Isaiah.

The are the most perfect couple. They both love cars like nobody's business. They both wear images to keep others at bay. For Rachel, she wants to keep her family happy, especially her mom. For Isaiah, he just wants to keep trouble away. So he acts like trouble, even though he's really not that bad of a guy.

My thoughts on this book? I loved it. Freaking loved it. It's my favorite book so far in this series. Everything was so amazing. And oddly enough, I liked Abby. She was cool in a weird way. Rachel's brothers were a little overprotective, but they were good too. And I actually didn't mind not having Noah and Echo in the book that much. I liked the story being about Isaiah and Rachel.

I suppose the only problems I had were that they didn't go all the way. I liked Rachel and Isaiah a lot so I would've loved for them to go all the way. It's not the end of the world, but it would've been nice. I also didn't like how my emotions were dragged all over the place. That was cruel. Though I suppose that means the author is doing a really good job at writing.

I really can't wait for West's story that's coming next. And I hope Ethan has a story too. I didn't get to learn enough about Jack and Gavin to really care if they have stories, but Ethan and West are musts. You can count on me reading those!

Overall, a great book, it was a fabulous read that I have no doubt that I'll be re-reading as soon as I'm done writing my review. I will definitely recommend this. So why don't you guys have at it?

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.
