Review

"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

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

"...my 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.

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!

I guess I should have expected to not like A Little Too Far based in the synopsis, but since I saw a lot of great reviews I thought the author might write it in such a way that it is good. Unfortunately it wasn't really. I really disliked the ending, but not for the same reasons I think a lot of people did. Oh well.

The book starts off with Lexie having a run in with her ex who cheated on her, who she was with for 3.5 years. She is still upset by this, but yet she still lets him make out with her on her way to the restroom. She has no backbone apparently and cannot stick up for herself. Starting off great, but really I had hoped that she would grow throughout the book and it would be okay.

So she goes home from this awkward encounter more confused than ever. Should she take the ex back? I mean he says he still loves her....then when she has a break down her step brother finds her and offers comfort. He is her bff and they tell each other everything. While discussing whether to get back with the ex or not suddenly they are making out and have sexy time. I didn't really mind this as...well since it just starts right off with it I don't have the mindset that they are brother/sister. He just seems like a good friend and whatever. Of course this results in lots of awkwardness and she leaves for Rome pretty quick.

I was hoping once in Rome she would use that time to be by herself and figure out what she wants, what she likes, how to just be alone. Of course that is not what happens. On day one in Rome she meets the dreamy deacon Moretti and is swept up in him. So it is just jump from one guy to the next, even though she thinks she is in love with Trent her step-brother. She also thinks since Alessandro Moretti is going to be a priest it is fine to be whatever with him.
