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…
After reading Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles I was hungry for more love stories like it. The teen first love but a bit more grown up. I found it with Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols. From the very first page you know that this isn’t your typical fluffy love story. No, Meg is definitely a troublemaker and proud of it. What she really needs to get her life straightened out is a little fear. At least that is what Office After thinks. But neither Meg or After’s past is exactly as it seems.
The writing was spot on. Exactly what I needed at the time. I don’t remember the last time I laughed out loud this much while reading. I really could not put this book down. I finished it in one day. I’m still thinking about Meg and John days later.
Meg and John After were perfect. I think I might have fallen in love with John just a little. He was so swoon worthy. Their banter with each other during the week they were stuck together is priceless. I love that their secrets were revealed slowly throughout the book. It made it so much more exciting.
Going Too Far was an incredible love story with a twist. I highly recommend it. Especially if you are getting a bit tired of those fluffy romances. 5 Stars!
