Second Opinion: Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols

I loved Going Too Far the first time I read it, and have been thinking of re-reading it for a while now.  (Read my original review here).  

But it wasn't until I read Jennifer Echols' new release, Love Story, that I knew I had to re-read Going Too Far right away.  As soon as I closed the cover of Love Story, I went straight to my bookshelf to pick up Going Too Far.  And I dove right back into Meg and John's story. 

I have to say that I enjoyed Going Too Far even more the second time around.  Since I already knew what was going to happen, I was able to enjoy the nuances of the book more.  I liked Meg more this time, knowing what I knew about her history and her true self.  And, of course, I loved John.  He was just...perfect.  I loved the development of their relationship.  I also liked that Echols leaves most of the romance to our imagination.  The parts she did describe were very well done---the tension between Meg and John was palpable.

In my opinion, Going Too Far is Echols' best book.  If you are new to Jennifer Echols, start with Going Too Far, then read Forget You, and if you are totally in love with her writing, read Love StoryGoing Too Far far outshines Love Story and is most definitely worth a buy.  

Second Opinion score:



  1. Great advice. I need to try her work.

  2. I'm going to be sure to read this book!

  3. I actually prefer Forget You to this one (and it's the one that I read first) but I did really like this one!

    Haven't read Love Story yet, but almost every review of it I've seen has been pretty disappointed in it.

    I'm glad that this one lived up to the reread!

  4. This book is so good! The story was just perfect to change anything from it! Meeting your truely love by the consequences of a mess up relationship is just an unforgettable experience you will truly want to enjoy.
