Book Description

"Sinfully sexy, but utterly unique. My favorite New Adult book of the year!" --CORA CARMACK, New York Times bestselling author of LOSING IT

"More than a ridiculously sexy, HOT read, Desrochers takes you on a wild ride of self-discovery and bittersweet romance." --JENNIFER L. ARMENTROUT (J. Lynn), New York Times bestselling author of WAIT FOR YOU 

"This is forbidden love and longing done absolutely right! Complicated and sexy doesn't even begin to cover Lexie's journey." --JAY CROWNOVER, New York Times bestselling author of RULE

Have you ever gone just a little too far?

Lexie Banks has.

Yep. She just had mind-blowing sex with her stepbrother. In her defense, she was on the rebound, and it's more of a my-dad-happened-to-marry-a-woman-with-a-super-hot-son situation. But still, he's been her best friend and confidant for the better part of the last few years ... and is so off limits. It's a good thing she's leaving in two days for a year abroad in Rome.

But even thousands of miles away, Lexie can't seem to escape trouble. Raised Catholic, she goes to confession in hopes of alleviating some of her guilt ... and maybe not burning in hell. Instead, she stumbles out of the confessional and right into Alessandro Moretti, a young and very easy-on-the-eyes deacon ... only eight months away from becoming a priest. Lexie and Alessandro grow closer, and when Alessandro's signals start changing despite his vow of celibacy, she doesn't know what to think. She's torn between falling in love with the man she shouldn't want and the man she can't have. And she isn't sure how she can live with herself either way.

"Desrochers' NA debut is what a good New Adult should be: sexy, fun and completely cracktastic." --RT Book Reviews

" heart felt like it was going to explode out of my chest at times, and the butterflies in my stomach were whirling full-force...and considering how I had a light case of the tremors when I finished it...I L-O-V-E-D it to the very last word."--Maryse, Maryse's Book Blog

From the Author

Rome has a life of its own, which I tried to bring to the page in a way that would allow my readers to experience it even if you've never been. I hope you enjoy reading about Lexie's journey as much as I enjoyed writing it.

"How do I love thee? Let me count the ways"

That is what popped immediately into my head when I sat down to write the review for A LITTLE TOO FAR by Lisa Desrochers, an--until recently--unknown author to me. What's really funny about this one, is I participated in the first cover reveal and I wasn't blown over by it. In fact, I'd seen the old cover on several other books. The second cover--this one--not so much either. If I'm going to be honest neither cover does this book justice. The book is simply that good.

When I initially read the blurb, I thought, oh dear, sounds like a love triangle, which I'm not particularly fond of. And an almost priest? I'm Catholic so that's bordering on sacrilegious, n'est ce pas? Anyway, I relegated this book to one I doubted I'd be picking up to read, despite the fact that I was hunting for another new adult romance to read. Okay, truth is I'm always on the hunt.

Then Avon put the first couple chapters up as a sneak peek. I was curious and since I'd promoted it on the blog, decided to check it out. I read everything posted and wanted more--hell, I wanted the rest. Lucky for me the egalley came up and I snatched it up. I read it in one day. One day. The only thing I did get done that day was my word count and I managed to get my son off to school, back home, fed but barely got him into bed that night.

I'm going to assume you read the blurb so I won't rehash the plot, I'll just get right down to why I loved this book so much without giving away any major spoilers.

Lexie is a fantastic and completely believable heroine. She acts and reacts in ways I thought were typical and consistent with her circumstances and character.

5.0 out of 5 stars Transfixed on this book from beginning to end September 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Wow, just wow. I was completely transfixed on this book from beginning to end. It is one of those instances where I was just drawn in. Whether it was the writing style, or the story, or just a captivating premise I was hooked. It's a modern day Thorn Birds of sorts. I do know that I absolutely loved it.

Lexie was fifteen when her father married and brought a woman with a sixteen year old son into their family. A bond formed and grew into a fierce friendship. They have shared everything from heartaches to tattoos. One night, however, it all culminates into territory that siblings aren't supposed to go into. Well, at least not in their Catholic upbringing anyway. Lexie soon heads off to a year of study in Rome leaving her relationship with Trent an awkward, miserable mess.

Seeking to understand and handle the guilt she feels, Lexie tries to find absolution in the church and meets Alessandro - just six months shy of the priesthood and too sexy for words. A friendship forms through a mission Lexie has been given by a priest to help Alessandro with some of the youth. Being an art major, Lexie tours the Vatican, museums, and galleries forming a friendship that confuses our sweet priest wannabe. All the while Lexi still can't forget or get over Trent. But can she with Alessandro? Is it fair to either of them if she does?

I loved Lexie's character. She is struggling to come to terms with her feelings, and wanting to learn from her surroundings and understand the people she affects and their actions in turn. It is a story of self discovery and realization. We get a lesson in art, and having been to the Vatican myself I felt transported back. It's great writing with funny witty characters. So high praise to the author, Lisa Desrochers, for a wonderful read!

2.0 out of 5 stars Ugh just UGH October 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
My head gets light-headed just thinking about this book and I really don't want to get into ALL the problems I had with this one. Needless to say I should've known better. Dysfunction isn't sexy and while I could reconcile Lexie and Trent and actually enjoyed their relationship despite the massive info dump at the beginning to get us on board with the relationship.
Seriously we're reading the book, we've bought the premise, we don't need to know how amazing and sweet and kind Trent is, we're on board now give us the sexy times, the relationship with Alessandro was just A Little Too Far for me. I loved him as a character but the way Lexie treated him was despicable and that moment in her apartment near the end sickened me. She wasn't a character I could find anything likeable about and the two men were definitely the(few) high points of the book. The ending was rushed too and call me Pollyanna but I don't understand this need in NA to write the most controversial plot possible. It's not needed. Needless to say I've learned my lesson and will be selecting my next New Adult reads with more care and won't be listening to the hype.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Hot! September 17, 2013
By Farrah
Format:Kindle Edition
Hot, intense, sexy, and sweet. A Little Too Far was one HOT book! Emotionally intense and featuring two hot men and some seriously scorching scenes. What's not to like?

Love triangles are shaky for me. Sometimes, an author manages to pull it off and it makes the book even better. And, most of the time, it doesn't work and it mostly serves as an annoyance at best. So, I was a little wary going into this book. The premise of the story is a love triangle. But, I have to say that the author not only pulled it off but made it spectacular.

Lexie was a great heroine. I worried that her, shall we say impulsive, actions might be a problem. But they actually made her easy to relate to. She's a very likable character, one that is realistic and wonderful in her flaws. And her indecision between Trent and Alessandro was believable because I was in the same place, unable to decide which totally amazing guy was better. I really liked her, even though I sometimes wanted to shake her for being oblivious. I thought she was an awesome, likable character.

The two love interests...
I think I almost hot a hot guy overload with these two guys. Wow, are they super sexy and hot and sweet and just wonderful! I completely understand why Lexie was torn between these two because I totally adored them both.

Trent was the step-brother. Their parents (his mother and her father) got married when they were in high school, if I remember correctly. They became best friends and confidantes and, yet, there was always an undercurrent of sexual tension. I don't know if some people might be weirded out by the whole step-brother/sister thing, but it didn't bother me. They weren't related and they didn't even meet until they were teenagers.
