Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Going Too Far (Paperback)
I saw this book by chance as an Amazon recomendation and decided that the reviews were all really good so i bought it for my Kindle. I loved every minute of reading the book and just couldn't put it down.
The story is written through the narrative of Meg who we see as having a bit of a 'give a damn' attitude but really underneath it is a bit of a show for a much more vulnerable person. After meg is caught, by Oficer John After, drunk on the dangerous and off-limits railway bridge she has to miss out on her spring break to spend her nights driving around in After's squad car; something she is inicially not to pleased about. The two characters of Meg and John are very diiferent, Meg is a bit of a rebel who thinks rules are there to be broken, while John is more of an abiding by the rules type. This initially causes some friction between the two characters but Meg soon realises she's in trouble when she starts falling for him...
I really thought that all the characters in the book, not just the two main ones, were really really well written. Even characters such as Tiffany and Will were characterised incredibly well. I thought that although Meg made some silly decision of what to do with her life she never became really annoying or unbelivable at any point in the whole book. Both Meg and John have secrets which produce some really raw emotions during the book.
Just as the book starts to settle down after the first few chapters and you start to think maybe it will be a bit predictable suddenly the book will have you going 'omg, i was not expecting that!' and pow! the story sets off again. The pace of the book is really good because although there are many twists to the book there are also emotional levels to the story as well.
This was the first book by Echols that I have read and I look forward to reading some of her others. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good romantic story that you will want to read again and again.
