            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....
My Review:
            Sometimes all we want to do it get away. Get away from work, school, and sometimes even life. That is all Meg ever wanted. This story revolves around two different people with a lot of baggage who happen to fall in love. It starts off with Meg taking on a dare that almost takes her life. In the process of this dare she meets John, a police officer who happened to be at the train tracks the day Meg took on that dare. The relationship between John and Meg starts off with a bang. There is so much sexual tension between them that it appears practically on every page. Though John and Megs relationship takes off fairly quickly they both are heading in different directs with life. Meg wants to leave town and get away from her parents, where else  John wants to stay.
            This book is definitely a romance and takes the reader through a journey of self discovery and how to depend on each other. As I was reading I thought to myself how theses two characters don't have anything in common, but as I read on more about  their characters was revealed. They both show characteristics of being  strong, determined, impulsive, and stubborn which makes their relationship so interesting to the reader. They have this chemistry that ignites every time they are together and that creates a push and pull between John and Meg. It was interesting to read how they helped each other through  their past and present.
