I’m going to say a few things before I start my review:
A long while I go I stopped reading. Not completely but, I was reading a book a week instead of one a day, and there were some books that took me three weeks even. I was blaming it all on school and thought that my blog and club where the one consuming my time. I just realized that I was just missing the right book. I started the firsts chapters of this book and then went to doing other stuff, and I just couldn’t keep my mind off from the story, it was all I could think of; but I really was busy that day so I leaved it at that. Yesterday I went back to the book and yesterday I finished it. It had been so long, since I felt that hunger for a book. So long since I had connected so deeply with a character even though we shared nothing in common ^^. So a Big Thank to everyone who insisted that I needed to read Going Too Far and for marking it as their favorites, If it weren’t for all those high ratings and recommendation I would have never discovered Going Too Far, and would have never re-discovered my huge Love for Reading. Thank You :)
Now I’ll start my review:
Going Too Far is a story that circles around the relationship between Meg and John. John is a cop that follows the law strictly and never goes out of line, he takes care of everything and watched closely a haunted bridge. A bridge that holds all his inner demons, to a point where he becomes one himself. And Meg, whom is determined to cross all the lines and break every boundary, if only to prove that she’s living and that she has lived; and also someone who runs and runs. She just wants to get away from everything.
At the beginning of the book Meg breaks some big rules and so Officer John takes control of the situations, punishing Meg by taking away her spring break and forcing her to spend it with him while he’s on duty. Naturally, she hates him. But through the course of her punishment Meg and John start to develop something. Something maybe close to Friendship? Or is it something more…?
And so with this thing going on, they start to push each other, further, further. John wanting Meg inside the lines and Meg wanting to push John outside them. Who wins…?
Going Too Far is one of the most amazing books I’ve ever read. What I most Love about it is that it’s not just the girl that has issues. That the guys isn’t 100% fine and it’s going to help her with everything. No, they both help each other out and I just think this is a wonderful book and a must read.
DON’T borrow it! BUY IT! Just BUY IT! I’m already re-reading it :)
