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.
We meet most of the key characters for the A LITTLE TOO series in book one, A LITTLE TOO FAR. Lexie Banks and her stepbrother, Trent Sorenson, are two of three main characters. They are super close—more best friends than siblings—but things go a little too far one night and they take their relationship to a whole new (and very forbidden) level.
I see Keira Knightly as Lexie.
Lexie points out that Trent looks a lot like Channing Tatum, so I think I’ll stick with her pick.
Lexie is terrified she’s traded her best friend for one night of mind-blowing passion, and she and Trent don’t really have a chance to clear the air, because she leaves two days later for a year abroad in Rome.
While there, she is racked by guilt over what happened with Trent, and raised a good Catholic, decides to go to church to confess. There, she literally runs into Alessando Moretti, a transitional deacon only a few months away from becoming a priest, who has already taken his vow of celibacy.
Eduardo Verastegui is my perfect Alessandro.
As part of her penance, she’s required to help Alessandro with his mission teaching school children about art. Over her months in Rome they grow closer, and Lexie tries to deny her attraction to Alessandro. But then she discovers Trent has started dating her best friend from home, Samantha West.
Amber Sky Noyes could definitely pull off Sam.
Sam has always had a thing for Trent, and Lexie wants to be happy for them, but she is also miserable, because she comes to the realization she’s in love with her stepbrother. And when Alessandro’s signals start to change Lexie finds herself undeniably draw to him.
So Lexie has a choice to make: tell Trent how she feels knowing it could destroy their family, or give into her feelings for Alessandro and ruin his life.
You can guess that both men don’t get their happy ending. In A LITTLE TOO MUCH, the get to see what happens to the boy who doesn’t end up with Lexie. And Lexie, Trent, and Alessandro all make an appearance again in Sam’s story, A LITTLE TOO HOT (book 3 in the A LITTLE TOO series).
