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?
Today is the character dream cast blitz post for the A Little Too Far series by Lisa Desrochers. Three groups of bloggers will be posting dream casts from one of the books in the series. Be sure to check out each group to see how each story is connected and which characters can be found in one of the other books.
This blog is featuring the dream cast from A Little Too Much.
We first meet Alessandro Moretti in A Little Too Far. He is a transitional deacon studying in Rome, only months away from becoming a Catholic priest…until Lexie Banks stumbles into his life. She shakes him to the core and makes him question the path he’s on. He had a rough upbringing, and did some things he believes are unforgivable. He feels his only road to redemption is to give himself to the Church and devote his life to helping others. Lexie makes him see the flaws in his logic.
Eduardo Verastegui is my perfect Alessandro.
He returns to New York to try to make amends for some of the wrong he’s done, and Hilary McIntyre is one of those things. He hurt Hilary in ways he can’t even admit to himself, and now he want to help her…but from a distance. But Alessandro finds that history catches up with him and he can’t stay objective when it comes to Hilary. Despite his best intentions, he’s falling in love with her all over again.
Hilary is hard to cast because she’s the product of an Irish redhead and a Jamaican. Picture Paula Patton with faint freckles and a reddish tint to her black hair.
Seeing Alessandro again rocks Hilary’s world. She’s finally got her life on track and there’s no way she’s going to let a ghost from her past derail it. And he can never know the true devastation he left behind. But as she finds herself falling for the man who, as a boy, both saved her and destroyed her, she has a decision to make. Risk everything for love, or walk away from her only chance at happiness.
We see these two again in a pivotal scene neat the end of A Little Too Hot (book 3 in the A Little Too series).
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.
This book is a stand-alone A LITTLE TOO FAR novel.
If you play with fire…

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.
