Lisa Desrochers delivered another exciting, thrilling and incredibly sexy novel that kept me on my toes to the last page. A Little Too Hot is intense, passionate and unbelievably HOT, yet as much as I did enjoy it, it was certainly not my favorite book in a A Little Too Far series. Still, it’s definitely worth stellar r

Suddenly, this doesn't feel like a game anymore. It feels deeper. And scarier.

How is it possible that I am only now discovering this amazing author? I should be kicking myself. Or be spanked...preferably by Harrison...if he was into that sort of thing. What?

As in my usual fashion, I did things a whole lot backwards and read this book without reading 1 and 2. And while I plan on rectifying this immediately, it's also safe to say this is easily read as a standalone. The author does such a fant

This is my first book by Lisa Desrochers but I can see why she has such a large fan base. She has a writing style that immediately sucks you in. This is the third book in the series, but you don’t need to read the first two to enjoy the story. You do get glimpses of the past characters in A Little Too Hot and I found out quickly how Samantha fit into the mix.

Lisa Desrochers has done it again!! She’s delivered an incredibly sexy, thrilling, and heart-racing third installment to this series, one that I’d recommend to any reader who’s a fan of the NA genre and/or looking for books with plot twists you’ll never see coming! Though it’s not my favorite in the series (as Lexi and Trent have a special place in my heart), it most definitely is worth the read.

Samantha is fresh out of ideas. She’s flunked out of college, lost her boyfriend to her best

This one has to be my favourite of the series!!

I think this comment when I first finished the book says it all. This is the third book in the A little too far series by Lisa Desrochers, although it can be read as a standalone novel as it doesn't link to book 1 and 2.

The story is about Sam, Lexie's best friend from book 1. Sam has fallen on hard times after being kicked out college, out of her home and also lost her job. Sam turns to her best friend Jonathan to help her out. Jonathan help Sam to

A Little Too Hot (A Little Too Far #3) by Lisa Desrochers

A Little Too Hot is the 3rd book in A Little Too Far series by Lisa Desrochers, this book can be read as a standalone and you won’t feel like you’re missing out on anything. The only thing is I will say once you read this story you will really want to go back and read book 1 & 2 if you haven’t read them already. Lisa Desrochers has written an extremely well written novel, lots of romance, so very funny moments and of course a hot alpha mal

Enjoyed this book, although not quite as much as book 1 with Trent and Lex. I didn't read book 2, cause wasn't very interested in preacher boy, but I like how each of these are standalones so you don't have to read what you don't want too.

I didn't really like Sam in the 1st book, but she grew on me right away in this book. I felt bad for her and some crazy bad circumstances that she had to deal with. I wasn't really sure where the story was going to go, because the hot stripper/hot bad boy angle

I didn't think I could love another book in this series as much as I did the first one, A Little Too Far, but it turns out, I was wrong! I absolutely loved A Little Too Hot just as much, and maybe even a little more.

To be honest, I had completely forgotten who Samantha was when I was going in to this book. I know she was mentioned in the first book, I just couldn't for the life of me remember where she was placed in the story. Luckily, it didn't even matter. I'd say you could easily r

A Little Too Hot is so very HOT!!!

I can not tell you how hot it is. From the very first I was hooked and it kept getting better and Better.

I never thought I would love it so much, but oh man, I do! If you have read the previous two books in this Hot series you know it can get really steamy in here quick. And in this latest, Gosh it was steamy from the first I read about that stranger Harrison!

Quick & Dirty: A hot new adult romance with surprising plot twists, sexual tension, and great characters. All new adult contemporary fans should pick this one up.

Opening Sentence: A cool April drizzle pricks my face as I stand in the poorly lit parking lot of the Fremont Pharmacy with my roll-away suitcase.

A Little Too Hot by Lisa Desrochers is a 2014 Avon publication. I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher and edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.

The last time we checked in on Sam, she was finding out the guy she was in love with was in love with someone else. If that weren't shocking enough, when she finds out who he is in love with, Sam is devastated. Since then, Sam has been having a few problems. She is still brokenhearted, she partied more than studied and has flunked out

First Impression...I've been meaning to get to this series but haven't had time. Since this one is stand along, I was excited to jump in. Plus, that cover is smokin' hot.

The Story...This story captured my interest from the first page. I was totally drawn into Sam's mess. And she really has one. Failed out of college and given some tough love by her parents, she finds herself desperate enough to take a job dancing to make the rent. But what really surpri

A Little Too Hot is the third novel in Lisa Rocher’s sexy new adult romance series, A Little Too Far, and this story centers around Samantha West, or Sam, who is introduced in the first book, A Little Too Far as one of Lexie’s best friends. Although this book can stand alone without having read the previous two installments, I would encourage you to read A Little Too Far first because Sam plays a significant role in Lexie and Trent’s story, and you will have greater insight into her situation an ...more

I really had no idea how this story would play out. The blurb definitely doesn't give much away so to avoid any spoilers I won't be disclosing much in regards to the plot. Let me put it this way. At around 27% I think my mouth literally dropped open in shock. And I may or may not have used an expletive. Or two. With that being said, I definitely enjoyed the premise and direction of this book even if some aspects reminded me of another book I had read not too long ago. Desrochers made this plot h ...more

If you have NOT read A Little Too Far & A Little Too Much, please read with caution. There are some spoilers that were unavoidable. Proceed with caution . . .

While this technically can be read as a standalone, I don't recommend it. Not because you'll be completely lost, because you won't, but because you'll be missing out on a lot. Seriously, the first book, A Little Too Far, was absolutely amazing while A Little Too Much wasn't as g

There is no one more surprised and in awe of Lisa Desrochers writing right now more than me.

I'll be honest, I was really scared to read this, almost dreading it. I had such high expectations for the first book and I didn't end up enjoying as much as I wanted to and I was scared this would be a repetition of the same problem. Plus, I never really liked Samantha much in the first book so I wasn't really starting this one good foot. But I told myself to read this with an open mind and not

I've been waiting for this book ever since I finished A Little Too Much, and I have to say this is my favourite by far! There's so much more to it than what's in the blurb, and it's definitely going to be hard to avoid spoilers. A Little Too Hot definitely isn't a fluffy romantic NA. It's got action and suspense and some huge twists that I never saw coming!

I remember Sam from A Little Too Far - Lexie's best friend, the one who dated Trent when Lexie was in Rome.

I absolutely loved the first two books in this series, A Little Too Far and A Little Too Much, so I new I had to get the next book in the series!

Samantha has been kicked out by her mum, so she moves in with her rocker friend Jonathan. She needs to find a job so Jonathan introduces her to his friend Ben, a bar owner. Ben’s bar, Benny’s, usually hires exotic dancers and since Samantha has the look and the moves, she gets the gig. On her very first night, she sees a guy from across the room… Later

First things first. Yes, this book is considered #3 in a series, but it DOES read as a standalone. You don’t have to read the first two books to follow along with this one. (Even though you totally should, they’re really, really good.)


Once again, Lisa Desrochers has made me one happy little bookworm. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect going into this read. I didn’t love Sam in A Little Too Far, and then I have the blurb talking about people getting killed, and I’m all, “Whoa! This is not

LISA, I LOVE YOU!!!! This amazing author can create a story that even the most straight laced readers can envision and sympathize with the taboo and forbidden storylines. Then she can yank the rug from under your feet leaving you absorbed by a storyline that will test your patience and limits with every turn of the page.

This is the first time I've ever read a book with a typo in the title. I assume the title is supposed to be "A Little Too... NOT." Right?

This is the 3rd book in a series and the heroine was a character who was extremely annoying in the first book. I don't know why I thought reading an entire book dedicated to her would be a good plan. It felt nothing like the other books in the series did. Very oddly different.

Also, I'm not going to get all judgmental on a character who gets fired from her job a

Please forgive me if this review doesn't make any sense. Blame Lisa, the author of this book. I tried my best to finish this book last night. I just couldn't stop reading it. I wanted to know that everything worked out in the end. When the synopsis says that Harrison spins Sam's life into a spiral of chaos she isn't kidding. I definitely never saw the events coming.

The sexual tension between the two was palpable. How they were able to spend so much time in the same room together without giving

Here is one of my favorite things about Lisa Desrocher's A Little Too Far series. Each book can be read as a standalone but they each are in some way connected.

In "A Little Too Hot," Samantha West is at a crossroads in her life. If you remember Samantha, she is one of Lexi's best friends and had a huge crush on Trent (our "A Little Too Far" main characters). With the heartache of losing Trent, her partying and reckless behavior takes on a whole new spin by being kicked out of her parents house,

Loved reading Sam's story. This was my favorite in the series. Would love to talk a LOT more about it, how the characters and plot kept me riveted, how HOT it was. But the entire novel is one giant spoiler. Writing a review without revealing anything shall be interesting.

Fantastic addition to the series. Can be read as a standalone but I do love reading things in the order in which they've been written.
