**BT** A Little Too Far ~ Lisa Desrochers

A Little Too Far 

Lisa Desrochers

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.

Amy's Thoughts~

Lexi Banks is getting ready to head to Rome for  ayear abroad. Great timing for her as she has just done the unthinkable. She's slept with her step-brother, Trent. Trent has always been there for her, ever since their parent married. Anytime she needs a friend or a shoulder, it's Trent she turns to. They grew closer and closer. It was only a matter of time regardless of how it happened. 

Thankfully, Lexi is able to escape to Rome. Overcome with guilt, she heads to confession for the first time in years. As a part of her penance, she's to work with Reverand Moretti (Alessandro). Alessandro is only 8 months from being ordained. During this time of working on their project, they develop a friendship neither had counted on. Something else they didn't count on was Alessandro's  feelings changing & becoming romantic. Lexi is torn between the man she knows she is in love with and the man who has become a great friend. 

A bonus in this book is that you will get an education on Rome & it's amazing meusums. I wanted to jump a plane and go see it for myself. It was definitely a learning experience for me. Touching upon such subjects as Lisa does in this book, she explores subjects that tend to happen, but yet are so taboo that they are often buried and ignored. Props to you Lisa for this.
