HOW FAR WOULD YOU GO?
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….(Source: Goodreads)
Meg is the “girl gone wild” in town. She sports blue hair and an attitude. She drinks, smokes pot and messes around with older guys. Despite it, you still like her. She is smart, bold and a hard worker at her parent’s diner. But one night on the railroad tracks brings her face to face with John. John a committed and driven police officer ready to scare the pants off of anyone messing around on those tracks. He gets the judge to order all the guilty parties to do night shift ride-alongs with emergency vehicles during their Spring Break.
John makes Meg his personal project. He wants her to be scared straight and quit with all her antics. Over the week, we really get to know both of them and they get to know each other. You can trace it. It starts with a mind recognition that they vaguely know each other and it moves to like to maybe something more. In the end they both want the other to deal with their demons, not realizing as they push each has one more they hadn’t revealed. Can they move on?
When going too far is what it takes to deal and heal.
