Title: A LITTLE TOO FAR (A Little Too Far #1)
Pub. Date: September 17, 2013/October 1, 2013
Publisher: William Morrow
Pages: 336

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
Pages: 416
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?

Series: A Little Too Far #3
Publication Date: January 21, 2014
Publisher: William Morrow Impulse
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.


Every page is deliciously breathtaking, wickedly sexy and sensational. A LITTLE TOO HOT is wonderfully unique and a LOT HOT! I am a HUGE Lisa Desrochers fan.

“Lisa Desrochers’ best yet! A LITTLE TOO HOT is hotter than hot with all the emotional punch to back it up!”
   — Sophie Jordan, New York Times bestselling author


1.       If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
There is no way to answer that without giving you a list. I’ve been to some amazing places, and I shared one of my favorites with you in A LITTLE TOO FAR, but there are so many more I’m dying to see. I’d like to spend more time in Australia and New Zealand; travel Africa, South America, Russia, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales; see Mount Everest for myself in Nepal; cruise up the Fjords; and loll around in Paris for a month or two. Then move to Corniglia Italy.
2.      How did the idea for the A LITTLE TOO FAR series come about?
It was all Lexie. She popped into my head one day and told me she was in love with her stepbrother. The rest (including Alessandro) just sort of happened.
3.      If you were stuck on a deserted island, would you rather have with you a book, a banjo, a pineapple or a cinnamon scented candle with you? How would you use it?
Book, definitely. It’s entertainment, plus, I could use it to knock whatever fruits or nuts there might be out of the trees, and, in a pinch, it could double as a weapon…or a very small raft.
4.      What character that you’ve brought to life is most relatable to you?
Sam, my heroine in A LITTLE TOO HOT. Don’t tell my daughters, but I was a hellion in high school and college. I partied a lot, and, though I never got cut off by my parents (mostly because they never knew the extent of my shenanigans) I certainly skipped my share of college classes and got in my share of trouble. Sam is a lot like me, and she isn’t going to apologize for it. But in the end, she and I both learned that, at some point, you have to grow up.
5.      How has music impacted your writing and who’s your favorite artist/ song?
The first book I ever got published, my YA PERSONAL DEMONS, had 20 musical references written right into the manuscript. My editor made me pare that down significantly before publication, but being a newbie, I felt the music so strongly connected me to the story that I didn’t think I could write the book without including the inspiration. I often say that my playlists become books. A LITTLE TOO FAR is Lifehouse’s “All In” and “Falling In” written into book form. A LITTLE TOO MUCH is “Demons” by Imagine Dragons. A LITTLE TOO HOT is “One Thing” by Finger Eleven. Each of my main characters has a song that embodies them as well. As far as favorites, that’s sort of like the where would you like to go question. There are so many and it changes depending on my mood. At the moment, my favorite band is probably Imagine Dragons.
