Recovered + Giveaway: A Little Too Far by Lisa Desrochers

So, remember about a month ago when Books Over Boys helped reveal the cover to Lisa Desrochers' upcoming New Adult, A Little Too Far? Well, the old cover has been scrapped and today, we're doing it all again -- new cover, new giveaway, plus an excerpt of the first two chapters and a countdown widget! SAY WHAT! I know, lots of awesome today so stick around and don't get lost! ;p

Now, without further ado, here's the cover to the highly anticipated, A Little Too Far!

Title: A Little Too Far (A Little Too Far, #1)
Author: Lisa Desrochers
Release date: September 17, 2013

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 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 right into Alessandro Moretti, a young and very easy on the eyes deacon… only eight months away from becoming a priest. As 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.

A few words from Lisa Desrochers' publicist: If you’re wondering why we made some changes, Lisa’s editor Amanda Bergeron put it perfectly: “When I first read this book, I was completely blown away. Then I was just plain giddy and couldn’t wait to share it with everyone I know. It’s the ultimate new adult read: sexy, compulsive, and entirely unique, which is why we wanted the cover to be equally unique. When I saw this image I told Lisa that it reminds me of a particularly tension-filled scene early on. Once you read, I am certain you’ll agree.”

We may not want to judge a book by the cover, but if there’s one thing readers love, it’s a beautiful cover that reflects the amazing story between the pages—and A LITTLE TOO FAR really is amazing; Lisa Desrochers herself says of it: ““A LITTLE TOO FAR explores a dynamic I was absolutely fascinated by. My main character Lexie Banks is undeniably drawn to two men, neither of whom she can have. I am thrilled that this new cover image conveys the heat and the push and pull of the story so completely.”

"More than a ridiculously sexy, HOT read, Desrochers takes you on a wild ride of self-discovery and bittersweet romance." —Jennifer L. Armentrout (J. Lynn), New York Times bestselling author of Wait for You.

  1. Hmm, there was this once when I was around 14 years old I was celebrating some festival with my neighbors and the adults were just pouring alcohol into this huge ass wine glass and they handed it to me. After drinking for a bit they kept on refilling my glass and I think I had a total of 9 big glasses of red wine. Haha but I was only a little drunk.

    I'm not thaaat wild so I've never really gone too far many times!


Thanks so much for stopping by Books Over Boys! You're a fun little lollipop triple dipped in awesomesauce. ;p
