a little too far


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 rocket out of the confessional, and because I’m looking back at the curtain and not watching where I’m going, I don’t see the thing in front of me until I slam into it. All the air leaves my lungs in a whoosh, and it takes me a second to get my breath back. The thing is a person or a horse. I know this because it’s warm, it moves, and it’s bigger than me. That’s all I know for sure until I turn around and see him.

“Oh! I’m sorry, Father,” I say with a bow of my head when I see the person I’ve stumbled into is wearing a black button-down cleric’s shirt and a white collar. He’s taller than Trent, so something over six feet, and though he’s slender, I can tell he’s no stranger to the gym. He’s cut and solid—which I know because he barely budged when I ran into him, and yet he left me breathless. He’s got a hint of dark stubble on his cheeks and chin, where there’s a dimple, and I’d guess he’s older than me, but not by a lot. Maybe mid-twenties. His wavy black hair is combed off his face, and, with his high cheekbones and straight, narrow nose, he looks like the half-naked guy in the Abercrombie jeans ads in my Elle magazines. Except he’s not half-naked. He’s in a priest’s collar.

And I’m staring at him.

With his dark eyes and olive skin, I’m expecting Italian to pour out of his mouth when he opens it, so when his glance flicks to the open confessional door then back to me, and he lifts an eyebrow, and says, “Greater sins have been perpetrated, I’m quite sure,” in a mild Italian accent, my knees go a little weak.



A Little Too Far was an entertaining book to read. It’s slightly taboo with a sexual relationship between stepbrother and sister (Trent and Lexie). But, it wasn’t as taboo as I thought it would be because their parents didn’t get married until they were in high school. So, the element of creepy wasn’t really there for me.

Lexie travels to Rome and a love triangle begins. There is Trent at home and then she meets a hot Italian priest. Yes, a priest!!! I don’t want to give too much information in this review, but this was a fun and it brought back memories of a vacation that I took in Rome!!

DISCLAIMER: I received a complimentary copy of A Little Too Far in exchange for an honest review.

a little too far


  1. Crystal Morton says:

    I do every day. I go over board cleaning my house. I have 7 children though so I figure my house is never clean enough. I know I drive my family insane but I can’t sit down if things are bot done. I drive my self crazy sometimes too.

  2. Yes I think I’ve gone a little too far. I think we all do! Haha.

  3. No not really, unless you count birthday parties..I can’t help it I go overboard 🙂

  4. Casey Britton says:

    I think sometimes we all go a little too far. It’s just different for everyone as far as what they consider too far and what they do to go too far. I know there are definitely things that sometimes i go too far with. I just think that’s part of being human.

  5. I always go too far!

  6. Mary Preston says:

    Most definitely. I become obsessed by different things.

  7. Yeah, I’ve definitely “gona a little too far” before, but I’m not in a big hurry to relive those moments.
