Review & Giveaway: A Little Too Far by Lisa Desrochers

A Little Too Far by Lisa Desrochers
Published Date: September 2013
Publisher: William Morrow
Genre: New Adult

The Story:
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.

My Review:  HOLY CRAP.  This book is fabolous!  I wasn't sure about the whole Step-Brother thing, but wow!  I loved this book.  There is so much going on, and Lisa Desrochers has put so much into this book!!  If you get offended easily, you might not want to pick it up.  But if you can appreciate the possibility of the things that happen to Lexie, you're gonna love this book!!!  Can't wait to see Alessandro's story - gotta wait til November, but it'll be totally worth it!

About Lisa Desrochers

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. Connect with her online at, on her blog at, on Twitter at @LisaDez, and on Facebook at

  1. Absolutely. I think all of us have gone a little too far at one time or another, for the good and bad.

  2. I have a time or two! I agree with Tammy that we all have at one point in time!

  3. Well this wasn't what I expected - but with the title, I guess I should have. It sure sounds hot! On another point, Amanda Hocking's animated promo for Tidal et al on your sidebar is FANTASTIC! :-)
