Read from the Book
1 That''s the worst idea I ever heard," I told Eric. Then I took another sip of beer and swallowed. "Let''s do it." "Meg," Tiffany called after me. But I was already out the door of Eric''s Beamer. My beer sloshed onto the gravel as I led the way across the dark clearing to the railroad bridge. Eric caught up with me. His hand circled the back of my neck, stopping me at the end of the bridge. We shared a hungry look. He''d been mad when I told him Tiffany and Brian were coming along tonight. And I knew why he was angry. If we weren''t alone, we couldn''t do it. If we couldn''t do it, what were we hanging out together for? Now, without sharing a word, he and I understood we would do it after all. The four of us were drunk past the point of needing privacy. In the light of the full moon I searched his handsome face a moment longer, marveled at his carefully mussed black hair. He was hot. We turned each other on. We were about to screw on a railroad bridge. It was a shame we didn''t like each other very much. I gazed to the far end of the bridge. "It''s not long enough for those kids to have gotten killed on it. Seems like they could have run to one end or the other when they heard the train coming." "You don''t believe that story," he said. "Party pooper. Why do you want to cross the bridge if you don''t believe the story? It''s not a daring deed unless you think it''s dangerous." "The girl got her shoe caught in the tracks," Brian said behind us. "That''s what I always heard.
From the Publisher
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....
"Naughty in all the best ways...the perfect blend of romance, wit,
and rebelliousness. I loved it!" -- Niki Burnham, author of
Royally Jacked and Sticky Fingers
