Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols - HOW FAR WOULD YOU GO? All Meg has ever wanted is to get away. Away from high school. Away from her backwater town.
Despite her attraction to him, she also noticed his unhealthy obsession with the bridge she and her partners in crime were trespassing on.
In other words: She wasn't totally blinded by love. Thank god! It would've been very implausible taking her previous wariness into consideration. I kept this observant streak of hers in mind and was disappointed that she didn't find out sooner what John's obsession was all about.
Made no sense to me. A huge, HUGE plus? The interaction between Meg and John. True to their characters, funny, If I had to pick the one thing that I liked best about this book this would be it. Nonetheless, I had a really hard time deciding on a rating for this book.
At page 95 I put it away I liked it well enough, but it didn't blow me away. Character development? Oh yes! Also, I loved the ending. It's true that it takes hurting each other to let go of all the baggage and get a chance at a happy future together more often than one might think. In the end, it just wasn't enough. While reading, I often lost interest.
The beginning was great; the ending was great, but the in-between - not the best young adult romance I've read. I think you should give it a try. But don't be disappointed if it isn't your cup of tea after all.
It was a shame we didn't like each other very much. I admire him from afar, but I knew I didn't have a chance with him.
Suddenly I wished my hair was not blue. Right before Spring Break, she and her friends are found trespassing on a dangerous railroad bridge, under the influence. They almost lose their lives. As punishment, they must forgo their trip to Miami Beach and instead each spend a week riding with a trauma unit in an effort to teach them a lesson.
Meg must spend the week riding in a police car with the officer who brought her in. She's unnerved to find that not only is he a few years older than she is and that they once had class together - but also that she's falling for him.
For Meg, the girl who doesn't plan anything and who runs away from any emotional ties, this week could spell out her downfall. I had kept staring at that beautiful cover a few times and asking myself what could have been behind it that so many readers were falling in love with it.
Now I understand, now I don't regret myself for having bought and read it. Actually, I had a copy of Going Too Far since April, and I admit that at that time I wasn't in the mood to read a romance or something, so I just left it on the bookshelf. Until one day and a few hours ago, when I was supposed to read another story, a Fantasy one. I was in the mood to read a good and light and complete romance, so I run into my room and I picked up Going Too Far-not knowing what to expect from this.
It was already 11pm, but I could read at least 50 pages until I fell asleep. I still wasn't so into the story when I stopped, but then in the following day, I picked up again from my bedside table and laid on my sofa. Then I was reading, flipping pages, being sucked by Echols' writing-even though I had felt kinda lost in the beginning, not because of the development of the story, but because of my own English knowledge, and in only a few pages I was already acquainted.
I ended up reading Going Too Far all day long, carrying it with me all day long, thinking about how was it going to end all day long. I could not put it down. I read this pages book in a little less than 24 hours, which I had never ever did in my whole life. I could find myself into that story, with Meg and John everywhere.
Each of them had passed through a lot in their lives and maybe that's why they connected so well, so deeply. In front of my eyes, they argued with each other, they learned lessons from each other, they fell in love with each other. But fuck it because that sounds hot.
And I didn't care if their age gap was big enough for statutory rape. Which it wasn't, lame I read this book in two very excruciating hours. I skimmed through so much. Oh god, so much skimming.
Because the writing is so bad. Not typo ridden bad but written-for-idiots-bad. But if there's one thing that annoyed me to no end in this book, was how many times the author felt the need to tell us that John has dark eyes.
Did you guys get that? He has dark eyes. In case you didn't get it from the last twenty thousand fucking times she mentioned it. She said it so many times, that I took this e-book and I did a search for the word "dark" and "eyes" to count how many times it happened.
I don't care enough to do the math. But the number for dark was 80 the number for eyes was It didn't help that the first time she introduced the fucking eyes she felt the need to describe it as "They were a strangely dark brown in his light face.
Okay so, let's not keep talking about the eyes like Echols did. Because, my god, does she like eyes. Let's talk about the actual story. Let's talk a little about the writing. Let's talk about how my IQ dropped. 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 Paperback, ; e-book, download now!

Find out with Meg and John! LOVED this romance! Meg's voice will stay in your head long after the intense conclusion. I loved it!
You are guaranteed to love it. Going Too Far is a book you will still be thinking about days after you have read it. Echols does an amazing job I loved this story. The past haunts us all, and this book addresses wonderfully the hold that it has over us. This novel was completely amazing!
This book also had an amazing plot and lots of twist and turns.
I will definitely have to check out some more books by Jennifer Echols, since this was my first. Although it is labeled young adult, I definitely would say that older readers will enjoy it as well. It has some powerful lessons we all could hope to learn and at a young age as well. Wonderfully scripted characters and plenty of energy and drama to hold the reader until the very end A definite shelf-keeper.
This coming-of-age tale is both heartwarming and uplifting. All in all, this is an excellent read, one that I can easily recommend. Well done! A torrent of different emotions, this book, yes oh yes.
