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?

I don't even know where to begin with this one. So many emotions ran through me after I finished the last page. This one is my favorite book in the series and I look forward to the next book.
Alessandro Moretti was 'The Other Guy' in A Little Too Far. He was on his way to becoming a priest when Lexie Banks appeared in his life and made him question whether or not he was cut out to be one. He's done quite a bit of soul searching and now he's gone back to find out what happened to the first girl he fell in love with.
Hilary McIntyre's life is going okay even though her dream of being on Broadway hasn't worked out yet. She's on good terms with her sister, loves her sister's kids, and is in a physical relationship with a guy who is totally okay with it.
Hilary has tried to forget the past until it comes back in the oh so handsome form of Alessandro Moretti. Alessandro doesn't mean to have Hilary find out that he's in the city. A few coffee dates, some major feelings of confusion and secrets that need forgiveness from both parties make this a compelling read. I couldn't put it down. The Black Moment made me ugly cry so hard. Lisa Desrochers has another keeper shelf read on her hands.
There's so much I want to say about this book but I don't want to spoil it. You don't have to read the first book in the series to understand what's happening. Desrochers touches a bit on the history between Alessandro and Lexie but this story is pretty much stand-alone.
If you're looking for a story that will make you laugh, cry, pull your heart out and stomp on it then put it back together in the whole run towards you in a crowded airport terminal and end up making out while the music crescendoes as the end credits roll, grab this book and don't let go.
We've got priests and prostitutes and a gay girl from Biloxi. Yep, just your average Christmas morning.
