Have you heard of A LITTLE TOO FAR? It's been flying around Twitter and the bloggosphere since it released just a week ago. I bought it and devoured it fast. I think I read it in less than 20 hours. Yum.
A LITTLE TOO FAR is a NA Contemp Romance and it's Lisa's first book for adults. She's famous for her YA Personal Demons series. She's pretty active on twitter so you should totally follower her here.
The cover sorta sucks. No. It actually totally blows. When I saw the cover on Amazon I was shocked to see something so basic and plain. I thought the book was going to be trashy lit-porn because the cover was so blah.
Luckily, the first few pages grabbed me tight and I couldn't put it down. The book is, in fact, not trashy lit-porn. It is, instead, a hot steamy love story that pushes A LOT of boundaries. Here's the blurb:
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
Yep, that's right: it's a book about a woman who falls in love with her step brother AND a soon-to-be priest. What the?!
But it's not raunchy or weird. It's sweet and both love stories are believable.
I give A LITTLE TOO FAR four fluffy kitties. I really enjoyed this story.
