Today I am taking part in the Blog Tour for A Little Too Far by Lisa Desrochers.
What it’s about
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 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 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 must admit when I first read the blurb for this book I was worried. I thought for part it sounded too much like another very popular book even with a similar name and wondered was it going to play out along the same lines. Answer, No.
A Little Too Far is an emotional read. It is a sexy read. The book is hot. Not only that though it has stuff going on beneath the surface. It has its dark elements which gives the story a bit of grit to keep you hooked.
I actually saw it described as a cross between Thornbirds and Flowers in the Attic and I am a big fan of both.
Looking at the blurb of this book you might not feel the pull but take my word for it, pick it up and give it a whirl. I doubt you will be disappointed.
A Little Too Far is a great read that will certainly warm you up on these cold wintery nights.

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.
