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 have read all three books from Lisa Desrochers' explosive new adult A Little Too Far series.   While I devoured each individual stand alone story, it is the second installment, A Little Too Much, that captivated me the most. 

After already having fell in love with the tall, dark, and smoking hot, Alessandro Moretti from book one, I could not wait to read his story in book two. I must admit, I was disappointed at first that the story was not told via Alessandro, but I quickly grew to love the scrappy, dysfunctional, can’t-catch-a-break, Hilary McIntyre.

After leaving Rome, Alessandro journeys back to his roots in New York in his quest to come face-to-face with his secrets which tormented him his entire life and to also right some wrongs from his past, the biggest being Hilary, whom he first met in a group home which they were both placed in as teenagers.

After trying her best to be just like everyone else and appear normal to the world and to not be defined as the broken girl who had a rotten upbringing and a dim future, the last thing she wanted was to be reminded of her past.... especially her past with Alessandro, who broke her heart when he left the group home suddenly and never heard from him again.  Her guard is way up and Alessandro has his work cut out for him to soften the hardened by life Hilary. Alessandro does not disappoint.  Ever the gentlemen, his patience and dedication to make certain Hilary is OK will make you fall in love with him all over again.

After reconnecting it is apparent these two have a true connection. Having been born and raised in New York (albeit upstate New York), I looked forward to their fun and flirty Thursday outings, which was their one day together to discover parts of the city they have never seen before. With each passing week, they are not only discovering the city they both love, they are rediscovering each other and it is one whirlwind journey.

I absolutely loved their story and the author did such a wonderful job of illustrating the little moments, the shared looks and pondering thoughts we as humans all feel but never dare to say. She is by far becoming one of my favorite authors. This is really a must read, you will not be disappointed.
