A Little Too Far Review...


A Little Too Far
By: Lisa Desrochers
William Morrow
Releasing Sept 17th, 2013


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 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 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.

I absolutely loved this book.  Lexie goes to school abroad and struggles with her feelings and emotions towards her step brother.  She meets a Deacon abroad and he helps her figure out what she wants and who she wants in life.

This is a great story about figuring out what you want in life and going for it.  Once again it reminded me of me and my best friend.  I love the ending but I want more about Trent and Lexie, I want to read what happens next.  I am glad there will be a second book about the Deacon, because I want to learn more about him as well.

Congratulations on a great book Lisa.  It is well written and easy to follow.  It definitely left me wanting more.
