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.
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!!
