A Little Too Far - Blog Tour

A Little Too Far (A Little Too Far, #1)
Publisher: HarperCollins
Release Date: September 17th, 2013 (eBook), October 1st, 2013 (Print)

Synopsis: 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.

Review :

As soon as I read the blurb for this book I knew I was going to enjoy it, there is always something about sinful read that gets me hooked especially if it is written well and let me tell you - this book was most certainly written well. A double Taboo : Stepbrother and priest oh holy hell - or should I say oh holy HOTTNESS?

Have you ever gone just a little too far?

So your boyfriend cheats on you - what do you do? Well for Lexi the answer is have mind blowing hot hot hot sex with none other than her step brother! Trent and Lexi have always been close and if you where to look closely there has been a sexual undercurrent between them just waiting to sizzle away. Although not blood related their parents have been married for some years.

“Never during any of it, even once we’re both naked on my bed, does any part of me feel like we shouldn’t be doing this. All of a sudden, he isn’t my stepbrother. He’s everything I’ve ever needed.”

Oh My Gosh

A Few days later Lexi is all packed and ready to head to Italy - she is going to be studying abroad. It is the perfect time for her to have some alone time and think about the situation back home - she even goes as far as to have a confessional in a church. Enter her next taboo the incredibly sexy Reverend Moretti; even his name is sexy. Can you say Love Triangle? Yes I know I HATE love triangles but for some reason that I cannot work out I loved the love triangle in this book, I adored it, I wanted more and I could not finish the book fast enough - then of course I kicked myself for reading to fast once it was over.

Reverend Moretti or Alessandro and he is informally known (it just gets better, I can most certainly imagine whispering his name). Is asked to work with Lexi on a project and soon a friendship blossoms but with friendship often comes sexual attraction. 

"I needed the perfect missionary for this job, and the Lord sent you." 

"Actually, it was Father Reynolds who sent me, on account of the fact that there weren't enough Hail Marys I could possibly say to cover my ass."

I really did love Lexi, okay so she made mistakes and often thought with her Vagina but I understood her and most probably would have made the same decisions - taboo and all after all this is a fantasy book world full of smutty sinful sex and humour.

I cannot tell you enough how much I loves this books it was refreshing and not what I was used to reading, the ending was amazing and I cannot wait to see what else she gives us in the future.

5/5 stars!
