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.

My Review for A Little Too Far
A Little Too Much
ARC provided by Author for Honest Review
I highly recommend reading the previous books in the series, before reading A Little Too Hot. This book blew me away. Where I really enjoyed the first book and just liked the second, I can’t put into words how shocked and in love I am with this one. I can easily say this is the best book in the series yet and my favorite by far. A Little Too Hot was not only Too Hot but out of this world.
Lisa Desrochers outdid herself this time and I loved every minute. From the blurb alone I knew this story would be different. I was not wrong. Nothing is what you think and even though the climax occurs fairly early on in the story, there was an added element of suspense and intrigue that the other books lack.
The books don’t necessarily connect but all the past characters do make somewhat brief appearances. Again this book takes on the POV of the lead female only, which is a little saddening but Samantha is a great heroine and I respected her choices and strong role throughout.
After being kicked out of home and college, Samantha is at a loss. She can crash on a friends couch but needs some serious cash to even do that. A friend of hers suggests working at a local gentleman’s club called Benny’s. Obviously Samantha can’t fathom the idea but with a few reassurances that no clothes need to come off and she can retain some sense of propriety Sam is out of options and decides to give it a go. On her first night she captures the attention of someone who appears to be an old flame. So what’s a girl in her shoes to do? Make him suffer, obviously. Using her muse in the audience Sam gives the performance of a lifetime all just while dancing and not removing any clothes. The downside to doing so well is being called into the back to perform private dances.
Many private dances later and Sam is enamored by her muse AKA Harrison. The two continue to play off each other and when Harrison continues to return and flirt with Sam, she decides to take it to the next level never expecting her proposition to blow up in her face.
Overall I loved this book and even though some could say the book was predictable I did not find it that way. Each page was a wonderful mysterious journey and I couldn’t have been happier to experience Sam lose her cool. Trust me when I say this girl does not like being pushed in a corner and using her in any fashion will probably get you killed. Harrison has a lot to work out if he wants a chance with Sam and this is no easy romance that’s for sure. Even with the climax occurring so early on I was still interested and involved from the first page. If you loved the first two books in the series, there’s no way you won’t enjoy this one. In many ways it is completely different but flows well without seeming repetitive in any way. None of the heroines or male leads are remotely similar and I think it helps make each book its own. I can’t recommend this book more and know this will certainly become a re-read.
