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....

Going Too Far's back cover summary offered a promising story. Unfortunately it was not for me.
The characters and their relationship did not work for me. At first I thought there might be something there but it did not really offer a certain factor that will make me love them. I like Meg, her rebellious nature and the way she talked, I think John's character is quite underdeveloped and not as lively. They are just too different to be linked together. I understood the physical attraction but it stops there. Maybe in the future I'll reread it again to see if I can give it a higher rating.
