Revue de presse
“Sinfully sexy, but utterly unique. My favorite New Adult book of the year!” (Cora Carmack, New York Times bestselling author )
“This is forbidden love and longing done absolutely right! Complicated and sexy doesn’t even begin to cover Lexi’s journey… a unique and sultry voice in the New Adult genre.” (Jay Crownover, New York Times bestselling author)
Présentation de l'éditeur
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.

Son demi-frère Trent -- (je vous rassure, ils n’ont aucun lien du sang, sa mère a juste épousé le père de Lexie) -- a toujours été là pour elle depuis le mariage de leurs parents. Il est son roc, son confident, son meilleur ami. Il la protège et la soutient. Même s’il est un peu plus âgé qu’elle, ils sont très proches et n’ont aucun secret l’un pour l’autre. Jusqu’au soir où, deux jours avant son départ pour l’Italie, Lexie et Trent couchent ensemble.
Incapable d’assumer ou de vouloir comprendre ce qui les a poussé à faire une telle chose, ils vont s’éviter et ignorer le sujet jusqu’à son départ.
Dès son arrivée en Italie, Lexie – qui a été élevée dans la religion catholique – se rend dans une église pour confesser ses péchés. Le prêtre va alors l’envoyer auprès du jeune et séduisant Révérend Alessandro Morretti, qui va lui proposer de l’aider dans un projet culturel avec de jeunes enfants afinde racheter ses fautes.
Un triangle amoureux avec un demi-frère et un révérend… Dit comme ça, j’avoue que cela peut faire peur. Mais j’ai tout bonnement adoré cette histoire !
Malgré la fonction d’Alessandro, la religion n’est pas un thème majeur du livre. C’est un passionné d’arts et lui et Lexie vont naturellement se rapprocher durant leurs expéditions culturelles à travers Rome. Alessandro n’est pas encore prêtre. Il ne le sera que dans quelques mois mais a déjà fait vœu de célibat. Son passé l’a poussé dans cette voie et il n’a aucun doute sur ses motivations... jusqu’à ce qu’il rencontre Lexie.
J’ai aimé Lexie malgré sa confusion extrême, sa naïveté et ses quelques erreurs. Elle est jeune, un peu perdue et parfois simplement terrifiée de reconnaître ses propres émotions. Trent lui manque énormément. Ils peinent à retrouver leur amitié d’avant et cela lui brise le cœur. L’aime-t-elle vraiment, ou bien juste comme un frère ? Était-ce une véritable erreur ou bien ses sentiments envers lui sont-ils réels ?
A Little Too Far est une belle romance – très intense, sensuelle et avec un petit goût d’interdit. C’est un roman que j’ai lu d’une traite en quelques heures tellement je souhaitais connaître le dénouement de cette histoire ! Pas de cliffhanger, mais vous aurez sans doute un peu de mal si vous n’aimez pas les triangles amoureux. Le style de l’auteur m’a plu. L’histoire est entièrement racontée du point de vue de Lexie, et on ressent parfaitement ses émotions. J’ai souffert et ris avec elle jusqu’à la dernière page.

Lexie Banks has.

I recommend reading .. hit that one click
**SPOILERS** (Sorry, but I don't think there is any way I can write what I have to say without them)
Note: I know a lot of reviewers wrote about problems they had with the stepbrother/stepdaughter relationship. I didn't have a problem with this and isn't a reason I disliked the ending. Not to be a person who "of course, has a story" but I actually have friends that were step-siblings and got married, so it isn't that taboo to me.
#1. The majority of this story (75%-80%) follows Lexie and her time with Alessandro. In that time it shows them healing one another and feelings being developed (on both sides). Alessandro helps Lexie find herself (working with children), experiences her passion with her in the heart of the art district, and helps her find a home in Rome.
#2. A big part of this story is the Catholic religion. So I thought it was a "Aww-ha" moment when Lexie prays for a sign from God to help her make a decision and Alessandro shows up at her door a minute later. Why was this in the book? To confuse readers? Because that's how I feel. The author was putting breadcrumbs in front of me the entire story, leading me down a certain path, only to have her choose Trent in the end (the person she's been avoiding and running away from the majority of this story).
#3. Lastly, I lost all respect for Lexie when she treated Alessandro, her good friend, like a piece of unwanted trash. Can she change her mind? Absolutely. But she handled the situation so poorly that she lost all redeeming qualities. This is why, days later, I am still so upset. There was never any closure with her feelings towards Alessandro. I spent the majority of the book reading about her growing feelings for him and then "BOOM!" they no longer exist. Alessandro who? There's never been anyone but Trent. Really, because I just read 7 months of time with you connecting and wanting another man. If there would've been more closure between her and Alessandro, maybe I wouldn't feel so robbed (and that email is NOT closure), but as it is I am wondering why the majority of the scenes even happened.
Aside from that though, I found Lexie a really hard narrator to connect with. I didn't like how she always said that she didn't want to hurt her relationship with Trent, her parents, or Sam and the first second she gets, she goes and messes it all up. Her parents for example, if she really is scared to tell them and wants to find the perfect timing, then why is she sneaking into Trent's room while they are both sleeping downstairs? Isn't that kind of disrespecting her parents right there?
Also, Alessandro-what was the point of him being in the story? I felt so bad for him! Lexie totally used him, and got all freaked out when he started to have feelings for her. Out of all the characters in this novel, I felt like he was the most well developed and he actually had a back story to him-then he got the boot. I don't believe for a second that Lexie didn't feel anything for him, and it was really sad how she said she cared for him then kicked him to the curb and hop right into bed with Trent. He treated her so well, and it seemed as if she could care less for him once she got who she really wanted. The majority of the story was based on their friendship-how they help heal one another-and for her to just let it all go, felt kind of rushed and out of character for her, at least I think so.
I don't know if I am supposed to root for her? But towards the end, I didn't really Lexie at all. I don't feel any empathy or connection with her.
It seems like only she got her happily ever after with Trent-like towards the end she's like "Oh maybe Sam will hate me but maybe she won't" and "Alessandro has his family, he'll be okay." It's like she doesn't even care about them?
This books was really good at first, like really good-then half way through it kind of just fell apart for me. The ending was short, abrupt, choppy, and unsatisfying and did not leave me wanting more-at least not of Lexie's story.
