From USA Today bestselling author Lisa Desrochers, comes the third book in her sizzling New Adult series.
If you play with fire…
Tossed out of college and cut off by her parents, Samantha West is in pretty dire straits. So when her rocker best friend hooks her up with a job dancing at a gentlemen’s club, who is she to turn it down? Plus, there are rules to dancing at Benny’s: No touching, keep your clothes on at all times, and never get closer than three feet. Unfortunately for Sam, her first private client makes her want to break every single one of them.
Harrison Yates is scorching hot, but he’s got a past that involves being left at the altar not too long ago. Sam is determined to make him forget about his ex, but when she makes her move, it flings her life into a spiral of chaos she never saw coming.
Because Harrison Yates isn’t who he seems to be. And his secret will probably get her killed.
Samantha or Sam is 21 years old. After partying too much while in college, and failing to go to class, she is kicked out of school as well as her parents’ home. After being on her own for some while and being fired from her mediocre job after a misunderstanding, her friend, Johnathan, suggests working for Benny’s (a Gentleman’s Club) as an exotic dancer. On her first day, she meets a sexy tattooed HOTTIE, who is nursing a broken heart after his fiancé left him at the altar. After talking to the hottie in VIP a few times, lines are crossed between the two and Sam is placed in a situation that requires some serious protection.
Harrison Yates, the sexy tattooed hottie, has a BIG secret and when he meets Sam for the first time it was an instant attraction. When Sam is placed in a situation that requires some protection, Harrison steps up and tries not to blur the lines between protector and protectee.
What I liked about the book:
- Serious sexual tension between the hero and heroine.
- About 25% into the book, there is a big twist to the story that I didn’t see coming. It actually was pretty awesome.
What I didn’t like:
- The way it ended. It just ended so abruptly that there was no follow up. No epilogue. Nothing.
Overall, I enjoyed this book for what it is, a simple romance quick read. I would recommend this book if you have read the others in this series (A Little Too Far & A Little Too Much) and/or you like this author.
Other Books in the Series
Title: A LITTLE TOO FAR (A Little Too Far #1)
Pub. Date: September 17, 2013/October 1, 2013
Publisher: William Morrow
Formats: Paperback, eBook
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.

Title: A LITTLE TOO MUCH (A Little Too Far #2)
Pub. Date: November 12, 2013/December 10, 2013
Publisher: William Morrow
Formats: Paperback, eBook
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?
