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….
Where do I begin with this story???? GAG ME!
This horrible story starts out with a girl who decides that because of something that happened to her in the past that she needs to “live life?” uh no… “not be wasted?” that’s better… “be used?” yes, that’s it. She pretty much is a bit of a sleazy and sleeps with some guy that is horrible to her just to have sex so she can be “used” and is her body is used but it’s not even sex it’s a wam-bam-thank-you-mam type of a relationship that ends up with them and two other acquaintances on a deadly bridge with a train coming hoping to do it on the tracks before the train comes and an officer catches them before anything can really begin and pretty much saves them.
Then this stupid Meg person faints…A LOT over something that may be considered traumatic but not to the point that it would cause such a reaction. stupid.
I didn’t care for Meg I really hated how she portrayed herself and felt “justified” in her “healing” process. Nope, nobody should be allowed to act the way she did and treat her parents the way she did.
Entered Popo John with the weirdest last name. Who for some strange reason finds her interesting and attractive and who has to stay with her for the whole week as part of her penance. She as part of her “punishment” has to go on a ride-a-long with an officer to see what it’s like and see where her road will lead if she continues down the path she is. Somehow they strike a friendship that quickly turns to attraction that somehow turns to lust which is portrayed as love and somehow things work out and he’s the good guy who helps her see the light and she helps him with his problems because what’s a story without both people having ridiculous issues?
Overall I didn’t care for the book, the problems were portrayed not well.
