A Little Too Far by Lisa Desrochers: Review and Giveaway

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.

Clare's Review:
I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!!!! I'm feeling so much Catholic guilt. And I'm not even Catholic!!!
The whole story hurts my fucking heart. Alessandro, Trent...I LOVE THEM BOTH!!! I also love Lexie! She's so funny and we would definitely be friends. Actually we are.
So Lexie has this amazing stepbrother, and please please don't let this throw you!! You will understand their relationship as you read and you will love them. But, you can imagine the obstacles. Lexie goes to a year abroad in Italy (I felt like I was in Italy, and I really wished I was), and tries to move on from her feelings and ends up meeting the hot, almost priest, Alessandro.
Usually in a love triangle, there's a person you really don't like and it's easy to pick a favorite. Not here! I had NO idea where it was going, but I was sort of okay with that because either choice was...sigh...wonderful. And the choice that IS made....sigh.....it's perfect.
I even teared up in this, and it takes A LOT!!!
This book will take you on an emotional ride. So well written and fun to read. You'll devour in a day!! ....while ignoring your family...more Catholic guilt...
5 stars!!!!
