Review: A Little Too Far by 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 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.
I honestly don’t even know what to say about this book because I was left simply speechless. Lexie, Lexie, Lexie. I don’t even know what to do with you sweetie. Lexie is the definition of a hot mess, she was seriously all over the damn place. There were times, okay there were numerous times when I was yelling at Lexie through my Kindle to stop being dumb, selfish, silly, crazy. This girl took me on an emotional rollercoaster, there were moments when I had to walk away because I was too frustrated with Lexie.
Then there are the beautiful Alessandro and the sexy Trent. Trent, dear God, I was totally in love with Trent. Trent is just as troubled as Lexie. I like that they both have problems and issues. Alessandro, he is equally as wonderful and I don’t want to ruin anything because there is a second novel coming out and I can’t wait to get my hands on it.
Any author that can make me frustrated enough to stop reading means they can write one hell of a relate-able book. You could feel with the characters, I felt their pain, their conflict, their troubles, and most of all their love. This was an emotional rollercoaster, really I went through the ringer and I honestly had whiplash after reading this book. I had to take a break before starting another book just to process everything. So get out there and get this book, you won’t regret it!
Pretending to be dead is a lot easier than living with what I’ve done.
It’s easy to be confident when there’s nothing to lose. When the stakes are everything…you…it’s a little harder.
