In the follow-up to Lisa Desrochers’ explosive New Adult novel A Little Too Far, Alessandro Moretti must face the life he escaped and the girl he loved and left behind.

Twenty-two year old Hilary McIntyre would like nothing more than to forget her past. As a teenager abandoned to the system, she faced some pretty dark times. But now that’s all behind her. Hilary has her life on track, and there’s no way she’ll head back down that road again.

Until Alessandro Moretti—the one person who can make her remember—shows up on her doorstep. He’s even more devastatingly gorgeous than before, and he’s much too close for comfort. Worse, he sees right through the walls she’s built over these last eight years, right into her heart and the secrets she’s guarding.

As Hilary finds herself falling back into love with the man who, as a boy both saved and destroyed her, she must decide. Past or future? Truth or lies?

Snippets!!

★ A snippet from Cassandra Clare’s tumblr for City of Heavenly Fire!

A parabatai. Like he was. And Jace knew, too, what that faded rune meant: a parabatai whose other half was dead. He felt his sympathy leap toward Brother Zachariah, as he imagined himself without Alec, with only that faded rune to remind him where once he had been bonded to someone who knew all the best and worst parts of his soul.

You can read another teaser here.

★ A teaser from Samantha Young’s blog from Castle Hill

Braden shook against me, his tone rumbling with laughter as he asked, “Am I not allowed out of bed this morning?”

“Nope,” I mumbled against his skin. “If you move, I’ll have to move. If I have to move it means facing the fact that we’re no longer in Hawaii. I don’t know if I’m ready to deal with that.”

He rolled me onto my back, laughing at the fact that I refused to open my eyes. “So is the plan to stay here forever?”

“Yes.”

“That might become a problem.”

I shook my head against the pillows. “I don’t foresee any problems. It’s a sound plan.”

“Well,” Braden sighed, “We will eventually start to smell. And needing the toilet might become a problem. And with your issues with flatulence—”

I punched him on the arm, opening my eyes so I didn’t miss. My husband fought me off, laughing as though he was the funniest man on earth.

“One year,” I growled at him, “All I’m asking for is one year without you bringing that up!”

★ J. Sterling put up on her Facebook a snippet of The Sweetest Game!

When I glanced down at the field, the sight of Jack warming up forced my heart to squeeze with pride. His gray sliding pants hugged against the muscles as he lifted his leg into the air before each pitch. The black shirt-style jersey waved in the breeze he created as his arm flew down to release the ball.

I watched as Jack grabbed his hat and tipped it twice, and I couldn’t hide my smile. That was his sign to me. He had started doing it when I couldn’t travel with him on his road trips, which had become more and more frequent with my work. Whenever he pitched, he’d tip his hat twice and his face would light up with a soft smile. He never knew if the cameras were on him or not, but he tipped his hat regardless.

Eventually it became a habit, because he started doing it at the home games as well. Sometimes his eyes would flash to the stands and meet mine. When they did, I swear my heart would stop beating, causing my breath to catch. Every. Single. Time. If anyone noticed, I would have been embarrassed, but no one ever seemed to.

I more than loved this man.
My husband.
My ball player.
My Jack Fucking Carter.

Even his name still gets me all hot and bothered.

-Cassie Carter, The Sweetest Game, Coming CHRISTMAS DAY!

Other News!!

★ Are you excited for Lucas’s POV? Read all about Breakable on Tammara Webber’s blog here!

Breakable by Tammara Webber

He was lost and alone. Then he found her.
And the future seemed more fragile than ever.

As a child, Landon Lucas Maxfield believed his life was perfect and looked forward to a future filled with promise — until tragedy tore his family apart and made him doubt everything he ever believed.

All he wanted was to leave the past behind. When he met Jacqueline Wallace, his desire to be everything she needed came so easy…

As easy as it could be for a man who learned that the soul is breakable and that everything you hoped for could be ripped away in a heartbeat.

Note: “Breakable is not a sequel. It’s a prequel story from Landon and the Easy story from Lucas. …Breakable is Lucas’s story – for those of you who wanted inside his head. It can be read as a stand-alone of its own, or as a companion to Easy.”

★ OH MY GOSH!! Seth (from the Covenant series by Jennifer L. Armentrout) is getting not only his own book, but his own SERIES!! The Titan series begins with The Return.

The Return by Jennifer L. Arementrout
(Not the final cover)

1. The Return will be in dual POV (Seth and our main protagonist)
2. You have NOT met the female lead yet.
3. The female lead has absolutely no knowledge of gods and any of that
4. Since it’s a Titan novel, you can expect… the Titans.
5. Apollo will be all up in the book, because well, it’s Apollo and I sort of like him.
6. Deacon and Luke will make appearances, but other main characters will not be featured in this series. (Not giving details to avoid as much spoilers as possible)
7. The biggest difference is that the Titan series will be New Adult paranormal. And here’s the reason why. I never gave Seth’s birthday, but he’s always been well over the age of 18 years old, and I really have no real reason bringing him into a high school environment without making him look like a creeper. And he already has enough creeper tendencies as is, so he really is too old for YA. Does that mean the book will be inappropriate for younger readers? Absolutely not.  Will it have more adult content? Probably. I mean, Seth was always borderline inappropriate, but my YA books have that, so….
8. And it will be releasing in early 2015, tentatively February 2015 in both print and digital.

Five years since she found out she was adopted by Lynette and Brian Jensen.For five years, Abby has gone to sleep wondering about the family she never knew and waiting for her eighteenth birthday.

When Abby and Tate show up on the doorstep of Chris and Claire Knight, they are overjoyed to see the little girl they lost almost eighteen years ago. But the news of Abby’s rebellion leaves Chris and Claire conflicted. After speaking with the Jensens, Chris and Claire agree to let Abby and Tate stay with them for a few weeks during the summer, to catch up on all the years they’ve missed.

Early Review: A Little Too Much by Lisa Desrochers

A Little Too Much by Lisa Desrochers

A Little Too Much by Lisa Desrochers
Series: A Little Too Far #2 (full reading order below)
Publication Date: November 12th 2013
Purchase: Ebook • Paperback
Source: I received an ARC from the publisher (William Morrow Impulse) in exchange for an honest review

In the follow-up to Lisa Desrochers’ explosive New Adult novel A Little too Far, Alessandro Moretti must face the life he escaped and the girl he loved and left behind.

Twenty-two year old Hilary McIntyre would like nothing more than to forget her past. As a teenager abandoned to the system, she faced some pretty dark times. But now that’s all behind her. Hilary has her life on track, and there’s no way she’ll head back down that road again.

Until Alessandro Moretti—the one person who can make her remember—shows up on her doorstep. He’s even more devastatingly gorgeous than before, and he’s much too close for comfort. Worse, he sees right through the walls she’s built over these last eight years, right into her heart and the secrets she’s guarding.

As Hilary finds herself falling back into love with the man who, as a boy both saved and destroyed her, she must decide. Past or future? Truth or lies?

If you’ve read A Little Too Far (which you should have before reading A Little Too Much! Grrr if you haven’t.) then you know that poor Alessandro gets left behind back in Italy. Lexie gets her HEA, but what happens with Alessandro? I so wanted him to have his own happily ever after, and I was SO happy that I got an early copy of his book! I could not wait to jump into his book, because I really liked him in A Little Too Far. He was sweet and kind and maybe a little misguided, but he definitely still deserved to have a happy ending.

The heroine was actually really surprising to me. I had expected someone new that Alessandro would fall in love with, but she was a girl from his past. She’s actually the girl who took Alessandro’s virginity, back when they were teenagers and living in the group home. Hilary McIntyre lives in New York City, and aspires to become an actress. She’s a bit hard to like, as she’s very closed off, and doesn’t let anyone truly in. She has her demons, and a past that has something to do with Alessandro. She’d thought that she left all her troubles behind years ago after Alessandro left the group home and her, but Alessandro comes back sweeping into her life, and she doesn’t know what to do.

Hilary and Alessandro have an intense attraction, but neither wants to act on it. Hilary because of her resentment of Alessandro’s abandonment, oh and her–casual–boyfriend too of course (can’t forget about him!), and Alessandro because he’s just come out of almost becoming a priest, and his own past ghosts, which include Hilary. Nonetheless, the two do still get to know each other a little, and warm up to each other eventually, enough to become friends.

We know from A Little Too Far that Alessandro is burdened with an insane amount of guilt–about his brother, his past, the hurt he’s caused, and Hilary. He tried to atone for his sins by becoming a priest, but that didn’t work out too well for him. So he moves to NYC to see Hilary, to see how she’s doing. He feels guilty for taking advantage of her when they were younger, but the truth is, both of them were just very young and hurting, and found solace with each other.

Despite her attraction to Alessandro, Hilary still harbors anger against Alessandro. She was hurt when he left, and because of circumstances that occurred after he left as well. To me, it was pretty obvious what happened to Hilary after Alessandro left, but other than that, I really enjoyed A Little Too Far. I wasn’t completely IN LOVE with it, but I highly enjoyed reading it. Hilary and Alessandro both have to face their pasts if they ever want a chance at finding love and having their happily ever after, and I was hooked onto their journey of romance and self-discovery.

Like Italy in A Little Too Far, NYC has a huge presence in A Little Too Much, and I loved it! Hilary and Alessandro both dedicate one day a week to discover the city that never sleeps, and their trips are so sweet, heartwarming, and meaningful. These trips are what bring them closer, and they get to know and understand each other so much better. NYC felt alive, and Lisa Desrochers has such great skill in making the city seem like another character.

I was so excited for Alessandro’s story, and it didn’t disappoint! It was fun to read, there were sweet and sexy moments, some angst, and overall, just a great read. Now I can’t wait for the third book!

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.

Okay. Have you read that blurb? Have you? Because wow, what a blurb. It makes you want to read the book doesn’t it? Maybe juuust a little? Well, it certainly made me want to read the book A LOT. The heroine sleeps with her stepbrother, then goes off to Rome only meet a smokin’ hot soon-to-be priest? It’s intriguing and sounds hilarious and you know something terrible is bound to happen. How could the heroine possibly end up in this situation, torn between two off-limit guys? Well, you have to read it! A Little Too Far was so. good. I didn’t LOVE love it, but I had a hell of a time reading it. I still can’t get this book out of my mind, and I finished a couple days ago!

Alright, let’s start from the beginning. So the heroine is Lexie, and she has a step-brother named Trent, with whom she has a very close relationship. Not close as in intimate (yet… lol), but close as in they are best friends. Ever since their parents got married, they’ve been able to tell each other anything and everything. They have no secrets between them, and they always rely on each other. I loved the friendship aspect of their relationship, because I could feel their friendship and their closeness. They knew each other inside and out, and then one day… all their sexual tension builds until it explodes and they finally sleep with each other. It’s hot and it’s wild, but I never felt that ick-factor that came with them being step-siblings. They seemed right and perfect for each other. But afterwards, Lexie comes back to reality, and no matter how much she enjoyed being with Trent, she still felt guilty. She doesn’t want to break apart her family, which she figures will happen if their parents ever find out their children slept together. Lexie knows what she did was wrong, even when it felt right.

I just had totally mind-blowing sex with my step brother. And I’m leaving for Rome in two days. Which is a good thing because I just had totally mind-blowing sex with my step brother.

I loved Lexie. She’s hilarious! She’s cute, quirky, and so relatable, and the way she narrated had me laughing in stitches. She’s a great heroine, albeit very indecisive, but that just made the story all the more fun. Because what do you know when after she sleeps with her brother and then leaves for Rome, she starts falling a little for a reverend on his way toward becoming a priest. Like, how messed up can a girl’s life get?

Yep. The tingle in my groin is unmistakable. I’ve got the hots for the good reverend. I thought I was going to hell before, but this pretty much cements it.

Lexie has such a wild, crazy life in Rome. She realizes how much she loves Trent, but then there’s Alessandro, the to-be priest. I started falling more for Alessandro than for Trent, to be honest, mostly because Trent doesn’t get as many appearances. He’s all the way across the ocean, and while Trent’s always in Lexie’s thoughts, it’s Alessandro who’s there for Lexie in Rome. He shows her beautiful places in Rome, and they have an incredible time together. Lexie becomes so torn between the two-impossible-to-have men in her life. She just could not make a decision! Usually, I’d get pretty frustrated with a heroine like her, but in this case, I had to give her a little slack. If I were in her position, I’d have NO CLUE who to choose!

I never really felt that connected with either Trent or Alessandro. I didn’t know who Lexie should choose, because I honestly had no idea who’d be a better choice. I started liking Alessandro more, but I still wasn’t quite sure if he’d be the better choice. This was one of the few times where I loved the heroine a lot more than the main male characters! But rest assured, Lexie eventually does choose someone, and I’m actually really happy with who she chose.

But, the best part of the book was ROME! Rome has such a huge presence in the book, and I loved it. I’ve never been, but I SO want to, and this book only made me want to visit Rome even more! Lisa Desrochers does such an incredible job describing Rome and the different places Lexie visits. I wholeheartedly loved everything the author did to make me feel like I was there alongside Lexie, getting to see and discover the city.

Despite not really being into Trent or Alessandro, A Little Too Far was so much fun to read! It has a fantastic, hilarious heroine, and it’s set in a beautiful city. There’s never a dull moment, and you honestly have no idea what’s going to happen next. Lisa Desrochers wrote a great novel, and I’m so going to read more of her books. I’ve started already reading book 2 in the A Little Too Far series, A Little Too Much, and I’m loving it!

4 hearts!
