A Little Too Far by Lisa Desrochers Book Spotlight

Title: A Little Too Far (A Little Too Far #1)
Genre: New Adult
Release date: September 17th 2013 by HarperCollins


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.


Lisa Desrochers lives in central California with her husband and two very busy daughters. There is never a time that she can be found without a book in her hand, and she adores stories that take her to new places, and then take her by surprise.

Look for her New Adult novel, A LITTLE TOO FAR , courtesy of HarperCollins Sept 17, 2013, and companions, A LITTLE TOO MUCH (Nov 12, 2013), and A LITTLE TOO HOT (Jan 21, 2014). Also in stores is her YA PERSONAL DEMONS trilogy (Macmillan).

ALTF playlist

I wrote A LITTLE TOO FAR in thirteen days in January, and revised for another week, so the playlist is pretty short. But because my muse is a wannabe rockstar, there is always a musical inspiration for each of my books.

For Lexie, everything changes in one moment of weakness. She’s left to sort through what she truly wants out of life, and then to figure out how to let go of the things she can’t have. The song that most embodies her is Ross Copperman’s “Holding On and Letting Go.”

Alessandro’s song relates to his struggle to decide what his path is as he faces down his demons, and his desire to help Lexie face down her own. It’s Staind “Believe”

And Trent, who’s been Lexie’s best friend and confidant, but sees that slipping away, is most embodied by Rob Thomas’ “Ever the Same.”

This whole book is basically a tribute to Jason Wade, the mastermind behind Lifehouse, whose songs beg to be written into books. “All In” and “Falling In” are the two main songs that played on repeat while I was writing.
