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....
After reading the eye reeling blurb on the back cover of Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols, I was like, "O-goodie, goodie- an Echol's fudge treat! Don't let me down!" If you are familiar with my reviews, it's no secret that I adore this author.
Let me down? As if! I worship the tiara on Jennifer Echols head. I consider her the queen of contemporary romance novels to please every reader. Her stories are always charming and superb and she always builds an amazing introduction to her characters and leads them into bliss.
Instead of a bad boy, we have a small town bad girl (ooooh yeah!!) counting down the days 'til she graduates high school and moves on to the big city. Meg is daring, seductive, sarcastic, and a misfit. She also has a bout with claustrophobia. After ending up in a cop car, are her wild days over or has this pursued into something unexpected? So much for spring break.

The thoughts Meg had about the mysterious Officer After had me tumbling through the pages like I was on the Olympics gym team. She made me want to kiss the officer's dimples... and squeeze his butt cheeks. The anticipation at discovering the familiarity of Officer After had my stomach in double tied knots.
John After stood for his responsibilities as a police officer. He is stern, intense, but soft in the heart. I would be okay with him giving me a full body search. I mean, I'd totally streak down a public street just to get arrested by him.
I loved the way Meg made Officer John After second guess his motives and I loved the way he made her test her fear. I loved the discoveries they made together and how they broke the façade of the other. I loved their understandable hard resistance. I loved this book.
And, I love Jennifer Echols!!!
