My first Jennifer Echols' book and it didn't disappoint, not at all!

I had a great time reading and getting to know about Meg, the blue-hair bad girl who cannot stay out of trouble and is dying to go to college and get the hell out of her small town and about John, the nineteen-years old cop , the really good guy who lives by the rules and never did a bad thing his whole life. For once, the tables were turned: the bad headstrong girl falls for the good guy.

There was a lot of depth to their characters, they had strong reasons behind their behaviors and it was heartbreaking and so very sweet to see them unraveling (pun intended) each other and falling in love. Needless to say the build-up and the tension between these two were intense and felt genuine.

How I pictured them:
Megan as Ellen Page

and John After as gorgeous Igor Stepanov (minus the tattoos), though if there was a movie Channing Tatum (in his early days) would have fit perfectly.

Going Too Far was a strange book. I didn't like it at all. The main character, Meg, was okay and I liked the love interest, John, but found, many times, that I was completely lost. Meg would go on some rant or start talking about something completely out of context and I was like "Huh?, Did I miss something? Anything?"



What irritated me most was Meg's back and forth between adult thinking and stupid, childlike, self centered thoughts. I didn't get it at all and thought the plot was kind of silly because it was obviously forced. I mean, c'mon, now.



I just did not enjoy this book at all. But, I did finish it!

I wasn't going to review this book because I read it this afternoon, yup, in one sitting. It engaged me initially. I liked the character. I didn't know what her problem was, why she decided that she need to dye her hair blue. I know kids who dye their hair blue and it isn't an issue.

I didn't wonder why her folks were pissed. She was obviously a rebel.

I didn't wonder why she was trying to find love through sex, or maybe just trying to find feeling through sex. Despite what some people might think, this again is not new.

However, everything together, all of it, swept me in. I wanted to know what was going to happen.

Meg isn't average. She's obviously smart. She runs. Why does she do that? She is introspective and observant. It quickly becomes obvious that she has been doing herself a huge disservice.

There is more, lots more. I think that this is the gift that Jennifer Echols is giving. The story is not obvious. The characters are not obvious. They are well-written and they grow; all of them grow. Nothing is static.

Kudos. ( )

It ended up being an okay book. There were a few things that were implausible (like a 19 year old cop) and sometimes I didn't know what the characters were saying (the dialogue would get really hinky). But the idea of the story was good and it was hard to put down (after you got past the first five chapters). I probably would not recommend this book to anyone, unless I knew they were a sap for these kind of stories. ( )
