Going too Far by: Jennifer Echols

Going Too Far
by: Jennifer Echols

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....

From Me:

Okay. This book was amazing. Bottom line AMAZING!
I expected it to be good, but not to this degree. The story goes so much deeper then I ever thought it would. From the very first page I was hooked, and I couldn't stop reading.
Not one character in this book was un-important. Each one felt real, and each one reminded me of someone I knew and could relate to. Especially Meg and John. The relationship between these two felt unbelieveably real. I forgot they weren't real, I was so engrossed in their story and what would happen to them.

Their relationship evolved so naturally. It wasn't a sudden occurence which I hate, but rather seemed completely natural - and the ride to get there was one that was so entertaining. Both of their personalities meshed well.

Meg was so original - but then so not. The things she deals with and the way she deals with them kind of made me quirk my head a bit, but then I totally get it, and I understand why. She was such a complex character. Her depth kept building throughout the entire book, and John was no different.

John is without a doubt in my top 5 favorite Fictional boys (along with Rhett Butler, Mr. Darcy, and Edward Cullen guys) but then I dont like thinking of him as fictional - it breaks my heart a little. haha.

I give this book a 20. Yes a 20/10. How is that possible? It just is for a book that was this amazing.

There is nothing I wished was different. Not even in the slightest degree.

I think this sounds good. I used to love to read when I was younger and had the time. Now I read very short books! :)

Thanks for your prayers for Summer! She is doing great right now.
