A Little Too Far (Book Review + Giveaway)

Hello and Welcome to A Little Too Far's stop on my blog. If you're looking for a book that's so twisted you wouldn't be able to put it down, then this is the book for you.

          Title: A Little too Far
        Author: Lisa Desrochers
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. 

Oh my god. This book is so not cookie-cutter material. But you know? Reading books like this one is great because it broadens your horizons, it makes you think, and it will make you question your views about the world and all that stuff.

Yep, we all know falling for a stepbrother is wrong. But, come to think of it, if you're not blood-related, then you'd probably really feel a connection--especially if you're in the same wavelength, if the person is hot, etcetera, etcetera.

Well, Lexie suffered the consequences of falling for her stepbrother and so she was thrown into Rome--and then she meets someone who again will challenge her beliefs, and will make her fall...the catch is, he's a priest.

It's such a complicated, crazy plot--but that's why it'll get you hooked. Read this book now and feel the hotness and the craziness.


Lisa Desrochers lives in northern California with her husband, two very busy daughters, and Shini the tarantula. If you'd told her five years ago she'd write a book, she'd have laughed in your face. As it turns out, she'd owe you an apology. Writing has become an addiction for Lisa and A Little Too Far, courtesy of HarperCollins, is her first novel for adults. She is also the author of the young adult Personal Demons trilogy from Macmillan. When she's not writing, she's reading, and she adores stories that take her to new places, and then take her by surprise.
