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.
I can't believe I never wrote a review for this! A Little Too Far was one of my favorite fall reads of last year!
The story follows Lexi who has just been dumped and is on her way to Rome to do some volunteer work. She also happens to be super close to her hot step brother who she grew up with. I mean, they're like besties fo lyfe with their gaming nights and his writing songs for her. Anyway that kinda just blows up in her face after they sleep with each other which I know is super weird but is probably one of the hottest scenes in this series. While in Rome she ends up working with the gorgeous Alessandro who knows how to be a complete understanding gentleman.
Honestly, I felt bad for Lexi. Things just were not going her way at all through out this book but she tried her best to keep her head high and look on the bright side. Alessandro really throws you in for a loop cause while you're rooting for Trent to get his shit together and quit being a jerk there's Alessandro. Wonderful wonderful Italian Alessandro! Even though you know, considering his situation you don't know if you should be rooting for him but you are! Then there's her best friend Samantha who was okay and then suddenly I couldn't stand her.
There is so freakin much I love about this book. The intensity between Lexi and Trent. The way Alessandro makes you swoon. The idea of being in Rome and getting away from it all and the fact that this book got me completely obsessed with the song All in by Lifehouse.
I seriously can not recommend this book and this series enough. Hands down one of my top 3 favorite New Adult titles!
