All Meg has ever wanted is to get away. Away from high school. Away from her backwater town. Away from her parents who seem determined to keep her imprisoned in their dead-end lives. But one crazy evening involving a dare and forbidden railroad tracks, she goes way too far... and almost doesn't make it back.
John made a choice to stay. To enforce the rules. To serve and protect. He has nothing but contempt for what he sees as childish rebellion, and he wants to teach Meg a lesson she won't soon forget. But Meg pushes him to the limit by questioning everything he learned at the police academy. And when he pushes back, demanding to know why she won't be tied down, they will drive each other to the edge - and over...
Are you tired of vampires and other paranormal young adult books? Then give Going Too Far a try right away! This book really touched my heart and will remain one of my favorite YA books. The cover was perfect and the first couple line hooked me right away.
Going Too Far is told from Meg’s first person POV. She was an amazing character that was strong, and knew what she wanted, but was also hiding so much pain on the inside. Used to using her attitude or sexuality to get her way, she’s in over her head when dealing with the small town cop that goes strictly by the rules.
This book was laced with a lot of humor, but also touching moments. Jennifer Echols has mastered the mind of young adults. The characters just come alive.
You have to love John. He has rugged good looks and a body to die for, but isn’t like other boys his age. He’s responsible and mature to a fault. Our two love interests are like oil and water, which makes this a really fun book.
This is a romance story you must read at some point. There is suspense throughout this story because our main characters have built walls around themselves to hide from so many truths. I definitely had tears in my eyes at the ending.
Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols is a love story that will stay with you long after you read it.
