Publisher: HarperCollins

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.

My Review
First of all I have to say that this book was great. I'll admit I was nervous about the love triangle part. I am not a fan of love triangles. This one however was done right! It was great, I really liked both guys. Early on Lexie realizes she has feelings for her stepbrother, Trent. After a pretty nasty break up he comforts her and well one thing leads to another and bam! Mind blowing sex...with her stepbrother. Yup, lots of hot moments in this book! This freaks them out at first. Lexie is confused and doesn't know if being with Trent is the right thing for her. Lucky for her she has a semester in Rome for college. While she is in Rome she goes to confession at church and confesses her sins. The priest gives her a project to do to keep her buys. This is where she meets Alessandro. Alessandro is a super hot soon to be priest. He might be just what she needs to get her mind off Trent. Will Lexie find love in Rome? Will she be able to get over Trent?

I really liked Lexie. She was a strong independent woman who cared a lot about her education. She is just getting over a messy break up with an idiot who cheated on her numerous times. I't's great that she gets to go to Rome to study art. Where is better then Rome? Seriously! She loves it there. She sees herself living there. It is beautiful and rich with culture. After she gets her assignment from the priest she meets Alessandro. He is a soon to be priest with a rough past. He is very nice to Lexie and tries to help her. Her assignment involves art and to Lexies surprise she loves it. She starts to her feelings for Alessandro but, is obviously conflicted with his priest status. She meets his family, he cooks for her, and comforts her. Perfect right? Will Alessandro break his vows for Lexie?

 Lexie and Trent are best friends. Trent was there for her to comfort her and help her get through it. He has always been there for Lexie. That is what makes it hard for them. Lexie doesn't want to ruin their relationship and after the sleep together things are different. They don't tell each other everything anymore. When she leaves for Rome things between them are awkward. They text some while she is there. When she is home for break she is surprised to see Trent with her best friend. She is hurt by this. She still loves Trent and doesn't want him with someone else. These two are so cute together. The stepbrother thing didn't bother me at all. They both need each other. Who will Lexie choose?

This was such a fun read. Both love interests were awesome and the love triangle was perfectly written. I am so glad Lisa Desrochers decided to write a New Adult Romance! A Little Too Far was perfect! I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a love triangle done right. The end was perfect! I loved it! It was hard because I liked both guys. Perfect ending! Go get your copy!
