HOW FAR WOULD YOU GO?

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....

Synopsis:

From an award-winning author comes a touching and romantic story about a troubled teenager and a rookie cop who just might be able to save each other--if they can save themselves first.

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
First of all, I just want to praise Jennifer Echols's chracters because I love them all,
she always make her two characters have this connection with each other...it's so raw, explicit and dangerous.
So with that, this book really sent me over the edge.
It was a really enjoyable, page turning book and most of the time it was because of Meg and John.
I loved how she pushed and pushed him and how he was able to get through to her.
They both are definitely meant for each other.
This book was def my book of 2012 and I even bought it at Powells to show my love♥

Going too far is such a sweet book. On the surface it’s a love story but that’s not all it is.

Meg is a 17 year old girl with blue hair and an attitude that has put her in trouble many times. John is a cop. Because of an incident at the unsafe town bridge, Meg is an unsafe bridge in the town, Meg and her friends are arrested and she has to spend a week patrolling with John as a substitute to being put in jail.

The week they spend together is an eye-opener for both John and Meg. As they struggle to cope with the situation and as the blurb says ‘drive each other over the edge’, they realize that they both have some growing up to do. And it’s not sudden or magical.

John and Meg are such likable characters. And the best part is you can sympathize and understand both even if they are on different sides of the fence. If I did have my doubts about how 2 people so different could fall in love convincingly, they were baseless. It was fantastic to see them falling for each other.

As I said before, this book is much more than a teenage love story. It’s also about coming to terms with your fear and insecurities. It’s about broadening your horizons and cutting ties with things and emotions that pull you down.

But…it’s still a light read. It’s fun and hot and exciting. Jennifer Echols has done a wonderful job with Going too Far.

Obviously recommended. Read it if you like light hearted stories or just want to have some good time. Don’t get me wrong, this story is complex, but fun anyway. I have to read other books Jennifer Echols has written.
