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.

Our customer reviews

A Little Too Far has been one of my most highly anticipated books of the year. I put a lot of pressure on this book, perhaps a little too much.... But rest assured, because A Little Too Far delivered in a huge way. It was FAB-U-LOUS. I think stories are best left to be read, not summarized in a review. And trust me, even a world-class summarization could do justice to the characters (OMG Trent!), or just how beautifully Desrochers depicted this story of love and guilt and duty and fate. Lexie's story, that of a young woman drawn to two seemingly out-of-reach men, Trent and Alessandro, was about so much more than physical attraction and the allure of forbidden love. It was a tender and thoughtful look at love and the choices it sometimes leads you to. Of finally finding your forever love and deciding if that leap of faith is worth the risk. (The answer is always YES.) A Little Too Far is the first of Desrochers books I've had the joy of reading, though I do own her Personal Demons series. I have to say, I'm a new fan. Through her words, I experienced the beautiful city of Rome, and the historical works of art that fill it. I also experience the wonders of Corsica, and the natural beauty that makes it a treasure. I also experienced the high of realizing joy and the fulfillment that can only be found in the arms of love. I experienced angst, not the kind of angst that makes you ill with fury at the characters, but the sort of angst that has you flying through the pages, leading me to breeze through A Little Too Far in record time. A Little Too Far is more than a story of sex and temptation. It is a beautiful love story, and without a doubt, one of my favorite books of 2013. And I can also say the second book in the series, A Little Too Much, is now my newest most highly anticipated book of 2013.show more

Wow does this book cross so many lines, and take me on the adventure every second of it. I thought that I might have issues with the step-brother and especially the priest, but the build up really made me see it in a new light. The forbidden romances are something that seems to find Lexie. Like a magnet. And they are hot, and sweet, and a little too far. Trent wormed himself into my heart because of their open and trusting relationship. How much they were to each other, and if it is step, how wrong is it exactly, that is what I explored with Lexie as it happened. Trent has this whole troubled musician vibe going for him, and he is a good listener and supporter of Lexie. So, I totally didn't know. Because really, how could this work for them? They could never be together in public. Then to further confused Lexie's heart (and mine) as she went to Rome and found herself doing confession and penance with a priest in training. But as they share experiences, art, attractions, dinner, and then confidences, I can def see the attraction. There is chemistry and tension with both guys and I couldn't decide how I wanted it to end. Alessandro (wanna be priest) has such a dark past, and I never would have guessed. The things that he wants to change and his reason for answering the calling is so powerful that you can't help but pull for him. But then I am also pulling for him and Lexie, which wouldn't work out if he were a priest, and I didn't know if I wanted him to give that up, no matter the feelings. So, like I said. Complicated, messy, emotional. Perfect. I had so many feelings in this one, but mostly I just related with and liked Lexie. She knows she's not perfect, but you can tell she is a good person. I know absolutely nothing about art and I don't know if Lisa (author) does either, but if she doesn't it is really well researched. Her passion shines through and makes me care about what she does. She is funny and complicated, so being in her head kept me interested through the whole book. And oh the setting. It's so much fun to be in another country surrounded by history and culture! A heart pounder, where I didn't know exactly what I wanted the end to be for Lexie, and exactly how far is too far. Bottom Line: Great book about what lines you can cross and should you?show more
