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...
I can't believe it took me this long to pick up a Jennifer Echols book! Seriously, where was this book hiding on my many trips to the bookstore??? I absolutely am in love with this book!
In this book, Meg has a lot of problems. Drinking, picking the wrong guys, not being able to be committed to plans, friends, or a boyfriend. She just wants to live, no matter the consequences. John also has a few problems. He is obsessed with the bridge in town and has given up his whole life just to stay with the bridge. Together, Meg and John uncover what caused each other problems and in doing so, heal each other.
There is so much chemistry going on between Meg and John! From the first time they meet, until the very end of the book, it sizzles between them! Their banter with each other makes for a good time and brings them even closer. I found John to be one of my favorite heros in YA. There are so many layers to him! He can be serious, funny, hot and sexy. Also, did I mention that he has a bit of a temper? I think i'm now in love with John after this book!
Jennifer Echols is an amazing writer and if you don't have this book, run out and get it now! You won't regret it!
