A Little Too Far by Lisa Desrochers
Genre: NA Contemporary
Release Date: Sept 17 / 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 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 don't really root for the couple in this book and I think that's why I didn't really enjoy it that much. Honestly, the ending was pretty horrifying. The two love interests were Trent (her step brother) and Alessandro (the Italian priest-in-training). I didn't like who she chose in the end and I disagree with it strongly. I didn't like the guy she chose because I honestly don't see where the attraction came from. All the times she was agonizing over Trent and Alessandro were ridiculous! That just totally ruined the whole book for me. Other than that I really enjoyed how the author portrayed various places in Italy and France.
