Review: Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols

Released: March 17, 2009
Publisher: MTV
Rated: YA
Buy Going Too Far

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....

What I thought:

Young love is such a weakness for me, when it comes to YA. I really did enjoy this. John seemed a bit young for a cop, even if they did let them sign up at 19. The role of cop made it a little harder to imagine him as still a teen and not as an older cop. It was the only thing that bugged me about this book and not even that much. It was just the moments when Meg described him as a boy that it kept throwing me for a loop.

The set up of the book was good. It had me on the verge of tears in different spots. Even though Meg seemed to be on the edge for most of the book, you can tell she is hiding her vulnerable parts and it made me eager to learn why she was the way she was. Meg was definitely a character that you can't help but want to like and love.

I had read another book by Jennifer Echols and I have found that I love the way she can tell a story. Her narrative is almost flawless. She doesn't overwhelm the reader with too many details nor with too much inner dialogue. She also has a way with projecting emotion so that the reader can experience everything the character does. I highly recommend not only this book, but anything by Jennifer Echols.

This is labeled YA, but it does have some strong sexual content in here, while you don't have the actual sex in the book, it does have some pretty strong description of what is going on first.

My Rating:

I was super excited to get this book. I am in Love with Ms. Echol's writing. She always finds a way to grab my heart and thrust me into a good story. As I began reading this book, what got me hooked is the unique plot line of it. As the reader, we are thrown into this world like no other. Filled with farms, horses, and a stable boy that caught my heart.
