Book Review: "Going Too Far" - Jennifer Echols

Title: Going Too Far
Author: Jennifer Echols
Release Date: 17th March 2009

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... [GoodReads]

My Thoughts:
Something that struck me as I read the beginning page is that it goes straight into the action. You are thrown into the character of Meg, rebellious and so called bad girl. There isn't some long description which becomes boring before starting the book properly. However details are definitely there later in the story but links in well and is put in at the right moments.

Throughout the book there is a connection between the characters John and Meg. They seem to constantly challenge each other without knowing, pushing themselves further and further until they reach consequence which I cannot tell you . . . *cough* read the book *cough* Also the fact that John is a policeman give this book more of an edge of difference especially because of his age, but that maybe because I live in the UK, and the reasoning behind it all is definitely unexpected. Yet the age of them both come through, both some what lost in life. Meg's voice throughout the book is just great.

Covering topics about what drives us to be where we are, trust and also friendship. It does have some strong language and some content about sex so I would recommend this book to ages 15 plus.

Recommend or Not? Yep. I don't see why you wouldn't unless you are below the age of 15...A truly romantic roller coaster story

What did you think of the book?
Happy Reading
