I had the opportunity to meet Lisa Desrochers and attend a New Adult panel on which she spoke at RT this year. She was thoughtful and funny and made me want to pick up all her books. I settled for A Little Too Far (because I already had no idea how I was going to get all my other books home from New Orleans). This year's RT haul was by far, the best yet. A Little Too Far is definitely one of my favorite reads (so far) this year.
A Little Too Far is a stunning study in forbidden desire. There are so many elements to Lexie and Trent's story, not just the forbidden step-brother angle, he's also her best friend and confidante. But the taboo is just too much, so Lexie goes to Rome determined to move on. While Trent throws himself into his wrestling.
Upon getting to Rome, Lexie meets Alessandro, a beautiful enigma preparing for the priesthood. The two become close working on a project together and Lexie is faced with even more forbidden fruit. But can she move on from Trent, by luring Alessandro from the priesthood?
Given a set up like sleeping with your step-brother then falling into the arms of the clergyman, you would think Trent would be a bad boy and the would-be priest the forever boy, but Trent is definitely the forever boy here. Alessandro has far more elements of the bad boy with his wicked past and drive for redemption. Desrochers expertly mixes it up and keeps us on our toes. You can feel the longing and heat on the pages. If you are going to read a New Adult, I definitely recommend A Little Too Far.
