Book Review:: Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols

Title: Going Too Far
Author: Jennifer Echols
Publisher: Simon and Schuster UK
Pages: 245
Format: Paperback
Disclosure: Sent from publisher for review

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....
This is my first Jennifer Echols. I don't even know how that is possible but here I am. Let me tell you...I loved it. It's just a fun book. The only problem is I want more. I want a second book and I want it now. I just need to know more. I need more Jennifer Echols. 

The book is only 245 pages. Pretty short if you ask me. But, perfect at the same time. It didn't take me long to get into it and I even brought the book to church and read in the corner. I know, I'm going to hell. I just couldn't put it down! I love a shorter book that I can easily get into and finish in a short amount of time. Win/win in my book!

Meg has gotten herself into some trouble and she needs to do a ride-a-long with Officer After--during Spring Break. I was picturing him with his 14 kids and wondering what kind of story this was going to be. Would it go there. I mean, would it actually go to the whole corrupt a minor thing? I was so pleased with what actually happened ;)

I liked how the character's both had things they needed to overcome. It wasn't a one sided story. There was progress on both parties. Isn't that the most important part in a book like this? I liked seeing them fall in love and flirt. 

The ending was perfect. It really was. I just want more now. Oh so more! This might have been my first Echols, but it won't be my last.

  1. I LOVED THIS BOOK. I read it fairly recently, and it was just the right length for me! I enjoyed reading about Meg and meeting John After (what a hottie). And it was just plain GOOD.


I love to hear what you think.
