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.

Everyone who's talked with me about books knows I love to read about the twisted side of romance. Anything forbidden-I'm in! It doesn't take much to make the blood flow faster in my veins. When I saw Lisa was writing a new adult novel and it was about a girl getting it on with her stepbrother and a soon-to-be-priest I was like Whaaat?  She was writing young adult novels! I wasn't the huge fan of her Personal Demons trilogy. Sorry. But she can write for an older audience! Especially bedroom scenes. 

A Little Too Far is more on the adult side of new adult with detailed parts with sex. I can't stop grinning while I'm writing this. I'm truly surprised Desrochers made the switch to the blooming NA market. 

Book starts of with Lexie complaining about her cheating ex to her hot stepbrother, Trent. They end up having sex so my perverse mind was enjoying the hell out of if. After the act they're not sure how to proceed with their relationship. Lexie leaves for Rome shortly after and meets Alessandro after her confession in the church. Alessandro is a deacon and has a soft spot for Lexie. 

I was rooting for Trent from the start cause in my opinion they were the better match and my sick brain ships it so hard. Alessandro was a small distraction. I'm sure Desrochers can find him someone else to be with. After getting a glimpse in the end of the book I'm happy with the choice she made. 

It wouldn't hurt to have more diverse sex scenes. Sure the book was ridiculous, but which NA book doesn't have a couple of mishaps? It was still far better than most. So, if you're in the mood for some sexy times, pick this book up. It will be a fun ride!
