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.
5 of 5 A Little Too Far
Where to start on this review....... Oh man I have to say that after reading this story I was such an emotional ball because so much happened and when it happened it felt like I was right there alongside the characters. I have never ever read a book that had me all over the place with my emotions. I loved every character even the ones that got on me nerves and let me tell you there was one girl that I wanted to jump in the book and slap her so bad. She knew from the beginning that the guy she liked loved someone else and he was up front and honest but yet she still pursued him and when things started to work out with the other girl the one he loved she got all pissy when he said they had to stay friends. I just wanted to slap her and tell her listen girl he told you the truth up front but you wanted more and he did not so get the F^&% over it!!!!!!!!!!
Okay enough ranting about her because I could go on all day about her and what pissed me off about her but I will spare you the details. So anyways we have Lexi who I love and adore. She is off at college and her boyfriend is at another college. When she goes home on spring break she finds out that her boyfriend Rick is a complete douche and has been cheating on her and when she finds out and dumps him she is devastated. She gave him almost four years of her life and he gave her a promise ring and everything but yet he chose to cheat.
As she is getting over him she decides she will study abroad for a year in Rome, Italy. She knows this is her clean break and she can't wait to start a new life and get over everything that has happened. Her best friend who is her step brother Trent talks to her about leaving but Lexi has decided she needs the change in her life. So two days before she is to leave for Rome she and Trent have mind blowing sex and Lexi realizes she may have some deep rooted feelings for her step brother that is forbidden but she can't stop thinking about him. Trent on the other hand knows he loves Lexi and always has so when she still decides to leave for Rome he is scared she will not come back.
Off Lexi goes to Rome and when she gets there she decides she is going to go to church and confess her sins. She knows the guilt she carries about sleeping with Trent will not go away unless she admits to herself how much she loves Trent and wants him. So off to the church she goes and when she is done confessing she comes out of the confessional smack dab into a gorgeous Deacon Alessandro Moretti. Lord he is hot sex on a platter but also off limits because he will soon be a priest.
Alessandro and Lexi form a friendship and begin spending time together as she completes her studies. Lexi realizes that she misses home and she misses her dad but she is really having fun out in Rome with Alessandro. Lexi also misses Trent. Then things get a little out of control for her and her life takes a huge change and she knows what she wants and where she wants to be. But can she have what is so forbidden? Will she be able to be free to love who she wants to love and will he love her back?
This is a story of love, lust, and what happens when you open your heart to the one you love. BEST BOOK OF 2013!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
