Publisher's Summary

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.

Romantic tension keeps you at the edge

There is nothing better than a novel that keeps the romantic tension throughout. In this love triangle, you can not help but have empathy for everyone involved. At points, you'll be screaming, "no," then later "text him/her," "don't." I liked very much the main character, she was funny as well as kept you involved as she changes and considered.

This was my first novel by Desrochers, and as an incurable romantic -- I give it a thumbs up.

- G. House Sr. "I am an avid listener. I listen between 75-100 hours per month on my iPhone: 60% fiction to 40% non-fiction."


Right from Chapter 1 this well-written, easy flowing, emotional, romantic and tender love story had me hooked on all the drama, mental turmoil and decisions that Lexie went through in her journey of self-discovery to finally find her heart's desire. Told entirely from her own POV which was humorous and had some vivid descriptions of her life and her awakening passions for art, teaching, Rome..... and love.

As the Summary states, Lexie found her boyfriend cheating on her with her best friend (which was bad) but then she cried on the shoulder of her step-brother Trent who she shares a very special bond with. Then things get out of hand and they have intense and mind blowing sex (which was very very bad... but very very good?) and, from then on, she can't get Trent out of her mind not even when she goes to Rome two days later to study. However, there she is slowly tempted by the handsome, charming, reformed bad boy, but soon to be ordained, Deacon Alessandro and things go from bad to worse as she's losing the special bond she's always had with Trent whilst fighting her ever growing admiration and attraction for Alessandro.

This is such a sweet, tender, sexy and romantic story of forbidden love and all the heartache that inevitably goes with it as the three main characters all question and fight their desires but Lexie has to eventually decide and, at times, I just wasn't sure who she should or would ultimately turn to, but she made the right and brave choice in the end but I felt so bad for the loser. Friendly messed-up young Heroine, two drool-worthy sexy yet forbidden Heroes, an enjoyable entertaining plot that has other likeable characters in it and a bitter-sweet HEA ending.

Worth a credit? This is book 1 of a trilogy (or series), and I'm eagerly off to listen to book 2 A Little Too Much which shows that YES I thought this New Adult listen very creditworthy.
