I felt like reading something random last week so I just opened a copy of this on my iPod. Having been published in the 70s, you'd think this holds some piece of vital information. It might have given something to some people, but not to me. I felt like I was back in the year 2003. Back when I was naive and annoying.
I don't think I've ever been this disappointed. Some writers can write simply and pull it off. But this just failed miserably. It was like the author felt like writing a book about her younger years and had it printed as is. No climax, no depth, nothing here folks.
Maybe I'm just being mean. Maybe it just really sucked. Maybe it's because I'm a realist. Maybe because I'm not a hopeless romantic. Maybe this just really failed. Or maybe I'm just too old to be reading something like this. Maybe, maybe, maybe.(less)

Meg is stuck in the past. She doesn't figure that out at first, but realizes eventually that the unusual color of her hair sells the very obvious about her. An experienced past. Meg thinks she has it all figured out. She hates to plan but unknowingly does it all the time. She predicts the reactions of people well. She knows how to read people.. until Officer After.
Officer After is calm, well-mannered, prepared, young and handsome. John After (inside) is warm, possessive, decided and self-destructing. They both try to help the other in their own ways. Instead, they end up hurt. "What have we done to each other?"
I'm giving 4 stars to Jennifer Echols' Going Too Far. This is my first book by J. Echols and it's a good read. John/Meg will certainly be added up to my list of OTPs. They deny their love for each other at first because it just seems wrong. A cop falling for a blue-haired delinquent; a rebellious girl falling for a cop.
This is a love story. And like typical love stories, their individual lives are dull and incomplete without the other. It always takes a while for them to realize the simplicity of the fact.(less)
