Review: Lisa Desrochers "A Little too Much (A Little Too Far # 2)."

Review: Lisa Desrochers "A Little too Much (A Little Too Far # 2)."

~ 4 Hearts Review ~

Amazon UK:


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?


Review: Kirsty Lander

We were introduced to Alessandro in the first book in this series, A Little Too Far, and I loved his character. I hated the situation that he eventually ended up in (view spoiler). When I realised book 2 was his I was a little apprehensive, but I am pleased to say that this book didn't disappoint in the slightest.

From book one we know that Alessandro had an ex who he shared an interesting history with. The ex, is Hilary, and this book is told solely from her POV. I enjoyed getting to know her character and meeting the girl who had previously meant so much to Alessandro. His past has haunted him and this book and journey was his way of righting the wrongs he has made.

"You have to me in."
"You are so far inside me, sometimes I'm not sure where I stop and you start."
"Then let me help you. You can show me your pain. I promise it won't break me."

I missed the setting of the first book being in Europe, but it was also good to see Alessandro being back in New York, facing up to his troubles and discovering a new life. The story was really interesting for me, and although I read it at the busiest time of the year (Christmas) I still found myself thinking of the story and being in a hurry to get back to it whenever I could.

There was a big *secret* throughout the book, hints to something that had happened in the past between Alessandro and Hilary. I had guessed the secret pretty early on, but when it was finally relieved I still loved every second of finding it out. Lisa Desrochers is a brilliant story teller and I love the journey that she takes us on.

"All I can offer you are painful memories and my broken soul, 
but I love you, and if you'll allow it, I promise to always love you."
