Review: 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....

Once again, Jennifer Echols has amazed me with her ability to write real characters, with real issues. She dangles that infamous missing piece of the story from the start and then masterfully unfolds it as the book progresses. Though I felt the romance was a bit rushed, I loved the forbidden rebelliousness associated with John and Megs relationship. They push each other to the edge, but catch each other just before they fall. The entire book is perfectly imperfect and thats real life.
