Format: Taschenbuch
Meg is rebellious. She has dyed her hair blue and has to work in her parents' restaurant without getting paid which annoys her. After a stupid dare on a railroad bridge nearly goes wrong she is arrested by the police officer John After. He's a good cop to whom it is the most important thing to obey the rules. He contempts such rebellious teenager like Meg. Because of his correct behaviour and his intimidating appearance it seems to Meg that he has to be quite old. That's why she's very surprised when it turns out that After is just 19 years old.
As a punishment for the dare Meg is forced to do the night shift with John After. So they have to drive around in the police car during the night. The punishment is set up for one week. Because of the circumstance that they have to spend so much time together it doesn't take long and Meg falls in love with John After. The love is mutual but it's built on shaky ground: John wants to teach Meg a lesson she won't forget but Meg is a very wayward person and she's questioning the rules After holds on to...
The book is extremely compelling and you never know what happens next because there are so many ways the story is spreading out.
There's just left to say that it's a real page-turner and it's worth reading it!

Meg pushes limits.

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.

Jennifer Echols deals with the limits of life and shocking everyone in GOING TOO FAR, a novel readers won't want to put down.

A Must-Buy 19. Mai 2009
Von Reader Rabbit - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
All Meg has ever wanted is to escape from her backwater hometown. Away from certain memories, away from her parents who seem to want to suffocate her in their dull lives...away from everything. And it looks like she's getting her wish, it's almost spring break and she's going on a trip to Miami and see the beach.

But then, Meg and a few friends end up on a bridge where, a few years ago, some kids died. They're caught by a cop, John After, who's only 19 years old and was one of the top students of his year...Meg can't imagine why he would choose to remain tied down in the tiny town and work as a cop. But John is connected, strangely, to the bridge and Meg and her friends' stunt provokes him to want to teach them a memorable lesson.

Meg is assigned to join John After during his night shifts for a week, to learn about the law and the importance of it.

Only, Meg isn't one to be complacent and she pushes to find out exactly what promoted John to remain bound to the small town that she's so determined to escape from. And he fights back, and stretches her boundaries in an attempt to figure out exactly why Meg refuses to remain in the small Alabama town that has shaped both of their lives so much.

So, this was my second Jennifer Echols novel. I'd always intended to read The Boys Next Door, but for some reason, I never got around to it. I *did* read Major Crush which was a pretty cute ro-com read. But then I read Going Too Far. It blew Major Crush away.

I'd expected Going Too Far to be good. To be great, even. I was sure that when I reviewed it, I'd tackle it like most of the other books I've reviewed. Normal and level-headed. Except this time, I have no CHOICE but to let loose and write a completely fan-girly review of Going Too Far. You've been warned.

Okay. So this book has depth. And I'm not talking the shallow pool that some YA novels are. Going Too Far is a freaking ocean. And I mean it in the best way possible.

The relationships and characters in this novel are so complex and layered. The main characters and secondary characters all seem so real. They all have their dreams, their hobbies and their insecurities. John and Meg's pasts both haunt them, every decision in the now is a reflection of certain events from before. Both have secrets that are hinted at, throughout the novel. But, it is only further in the novel that the secrets are fully revealed to the reader and the other characters. (And, of course, this fuels further conflict and further revelations and conclusions.)

The story is told in Meg's POV, and it couldn't be told any other way. Meg's voice is realistic; everything about her makes sense and stays true to her character.

Along with that, Meg's easy to relate with and feel for, despite her not being like the average teenager. When she hurts, you cringe. When she's happy, you smile. In that aspect, reading Going Too Far is like a (fun) roller coaster.

Similarly, John is well-rounded as well. His secret, his driving motivation in life and everything..really, are questioned by Meg in this novel. The way he handles his life, his job and the way he is, makes it easy to feel for him as well.

And when you put the two characters together? It's completely believable to have them get each other. To have them fall in love, even. There are so many books where relationships are handled shabbily; the girl and the guy meet, think the other is hot and decide, at the end of the book, that they should go out. It's not like this at all in Going Too Far. In the span of the week that the book takes place over, it's easy to see their relationship build as you read page after page.

Overall, Going Too Far is an intense, touching and believable story of love, loss and friendship that will resonate with you for a long time after you've closed the book.

Honestly, this is one that deserves a spot on your bookshelf. Make sure you pick up a copy!

Troubled Teens With Angst Collide 16. März 2009
Von Tiffany - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
In Jennifer Echols' Going Too Far, two teens full of their own personal demons meet one night under volatile circumstances and end up pushing each other to his/her limit while falling in love.

The characters are real and interesting, showing great development from the first page. Meg feels like a real troubled teen, who is not without humor or sarcasm, though she is not happy with her lot. John also has his own issues to work out, and is nothing like normal from the beginning. The side characters are engaging and realistic, as well.

Told in first person perspective, Meg describes what is happening in her life, and is honest enough about herself the reader can mostly trust what she sees and feels. The writing is easy to follow and flows rather nicely.

While there are no big surprises in the story, I was still impressed by all the little details the author tied into the plot. No strings were left untied, and everything that happened or was said had some meaning and was important in some way. The novel was tight and concise, making the story and reading experience even better.

I would recommend this teen novel to anyone who wants some drama, heartache, and growth in their teen romance. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and will not hesitate to pick up the next book by this author.

Beyond Words! Brilliant! 15. März 2009
Von Mint910 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book was HOT! The chemistry and banter between Meg and John (Officer After) could keep me reading for probably a 1,000 pages. It was an absolute pleasure to read I couldn't get enough of it.

Echols writing style is just perfect to me, it's humorous and detailed and random, everything I love. She created a very likable character in Meg, someone who intentionally creates a somewhat shocking appearance (blue hair) and attitude to protect herself but little by little we learn more about Meg and the reason she is the way she is and you can't help being on her side and wanting to be her friend. And John, man, I loved reading about this boy. I don't even know what to say.

I loved reading about John and Meg on night patrol and watching Meg realize she's falling in love with him. It's pretty cute to see this punk haired bad-a%* girl get kind of self conscious around John. There is a great push and pull between them that keeps you on edge, needing to know where this is going to go.

I'm at a loss for words of how to express how much I loved this book! It has so very many things going for it, GREAT characters (main and secondary) a great premise, humor, pain.... just please, do yourself a favor and read this book! I'll definitely be reading the rest of the author's books!

And seriously, when can I see the movie version? :P

Great, until the end. 23. August 2012
Von Kala - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I really liked this book... until the end. When I got to the end I kind of sat there and went WTF?

Most of the book centers around Meg and John. Meg is a wild child who gets caught drunk and high on a bridge in a small Alabama town. John is a police officer who catches her. As part of her plea deal, she has to ride along with him for a week (the week that would have been her spring break). During that week, Meg and John start to develop feelings that come to a head a few days after the week is over.

Meg was compelling. I loved her attitude and found her backstory to be compelling. There were times I thought she went a little overboard on the hate for her parents, but she is 17 and has gone through a lot with them so I kind of understand.

***SPOILERS BELOW!!***

John was great, until the end where I felt like the author rushed things and kind of ruined his character. He became a police officer very young (at 19) because he was very driven and that was what he wanted to do with his life. At the end he basically decides to go back to college and give all of that up because of Meg, who he has known for one week. Becoming a police officer is a long process and from how he acted throughout the book, it sounded like it was something he was very passionate about. Getting a job as a cop takes a long time, and the training takes a long time, and while sometimes people quit, for the most part it's not a job where people come and go like they would at a McDonalds or a restaurant. It's a career, not a job. And John seemed so in to the whole job (not just the bridge), so it bothered me that he was just going to give it all up at the end because of one week with Meg. Sorry, I guess that was a bit of a rant. :)

On that same note, I also have a hard time believing that Meg is "cured" of her issues after only one week with John. While I really liked their interactions, it really just comes across as insta-love. This girl was so flawed, and I LOVED that, but at the end she changes from a blue-haired, sassy, wild girl with a bad attitude who doesn't make plans and doesn't call people into a brown-haired wannabe track star at college who is making long term plans for with John after just a week. I just don't buy it.

The writing was pretty good and I managed to read this entire book in about 2 hours without stopping. I didn't want to put it down, which is always a wonderful feeling. I may check out more books by this author because I did like this one.

I do want to complain about the e-book having so much extra crap in it that the actual book ends at 77%! Also, e-book being priced higher than the paperback is a huge turnoff! While I plan on reading more by this author at some point, I won't buy more until the e-book price is dropped!

Angieville: GOING TOO FAR 17. August 2009
Von Angela Thompson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
It was my birthday eve and I was feeling like being incredibly cozy and wanted something sweet and absorbing. Jennifer Echols' GOING TOO FAR is both. I read it in one sitting and pretty much had to know what happened before I could sleep. The funny thing was my dreams had an interesting musical score behind them that night. Full of songs about love and loss. Particularly "Re: Stacks" by Bon Iver. Over and over again in my head, this one seemed to fit Meg and John so well.

Stuck in Nowhere, Alabama, Meg MacPherson is counting down the hours until she can move away to college. And it doesn't even matter that she's only going just a few miles down the road to Birmingham. She'll still be away from her hometown, away from her parents, and away from her thankless (and payless) job at their 24-hour breakfast greasy spoon--Eggstra! Eggstra! *snort* For the last few years Meg has comfortably occupied the position of town Bad Girl, complete with rapidly changing hair color (currently blue) and revolving door of lousy boyfriends (seriously, her latest makes Charlie Sheen look like a real catch). One night up on the railroad bridge, Meg and three compatriots have the misfortune to be caught, drunk and disorderly, by the local cops. For their punishment, they each have to spend a week riding with one of the emergency personnel that had to come out after them that night. Meg pulls the cop who chewed her out that night--Officer After--a 19-year-old hometown boy whose only ambition in life appears to be busting the butts of errant high schoolers and who never dreams of leaving. Over the course of the next five days, Meg and Officer After learn a few things about each other that complicate both of their long-term plans.

At first these two seem like fairly straightforward stereotypes. Bad Girl meets Straight Shooter. Sparring and romance ensue. In that order. But then, just as you're prepared to get bored, things get interesting. Meg shows herself to be quite a bit more layered than initially expected. She's clearly got several hideous incidents in her past which make it, among other things, difficult to be in confined spaces. Handcuffs or prison bars, for example, assume nightmarish proportions for Meg. And she has a charming habit of voicing her thoughts and emotions. Every time she blurted out, "I am full of fear," I laughed and loved her more. Except when she really was. And had good reason to be. Then I was full of fear for her and I couldn't stop turning the pages. John is as layered as Meg, only it comes out more slowly as Meg herself discovers it. And it doesn't all come out in the right order, which is frustrating for all concerned. But they're both so likable, you'll go along for the ride. My favorite bit about this story is that in the end, when the inevitable unforgivable act occurs, Meg squares her shoulders and fixes things. She doesn't dissolve in her despair but rather has a good cry and then goes about making reparation and salvaging what she can. I always liked her, but that's when I admired her. Recommended for fans of Simone Elkeles' Perfect Chemistry, Laura Wiess' Such a Pretty Girl, and for when you're looking for a light, swallow-in-a-single-gulp read.
