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.

Please forgive me if this review doesn't make any sense. Blame Lisa, the author. 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 into each other I'll never know. It would have taken a lot of self control. Then again, the situation would be enough to help my control. This is just another amazing book by Lisa Desrocher. If you haven't read any of her other books, you should. This is the third I have read and I have found them all to be equally amazing.

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! Oh my Harrison! I’m not trying to swear but Oh My Gosh! He’s so hot and I thought Alessandro from A Little Too Much was hot, Harrison is to die for~ Okay so we have Samantha whom we met in book one, A Little Too Far who was Trent’s girlfriend and bestie to his step-sister, Lexie. If you’ve read the book you know what all came down. We also got a mixed feeling for Sam in that book, but now she has her own story. So Sam has been kicked out of her home by her mother and has no job or a place to stay. Therefore she asked her friend Jonathan to stay with him and his roommate. He agrees but hooked her up at a gentlemen’s bar (not to mistake it for a strip club) to pay for her share of the rent. Sam obliges and gets the job dancing for the customers and so on. But sparks starts to fly when she spots a Mysterious gentleman and once she got a called to dance privately for the Mysterious gentleman, she couldn’t help herself but want to get under him and throw the rules over her head of no touching, close contact, and all those no nos with the customers. So there are more private VIPs with Mr. Harrison Yates and some super sweaty hot scenes which, trust me, they were worth it! But of course things aren’t always what they seems and once Sam crossed that road of client and something more with Harrison, she threw herself into unknown territory with him. Harrison as you may know has secrets and well, they are hug depending how you want to see it. They change the story dramatically which I love because it made the story even better! It’s really hard not to love him. I really love how Lisa once again got my mind and heart pounding! I couldn’t put the book down and was on the edge of my seat throughout the whole read! And I also read it in One Whole Seating! Should I even say there was some suspense? I know I got that from the previous book but it really worked in this one! And the twists and turns!!! Oh man. I had to take a breather just to let everything settled in. Shall I say this was both before and after the turns of events?! Every time I turned the pages I just get thrown in and out of feeling really tighten up with nervousness or holding my breath in….some kind of swooning senselessness! Harrison is just a God!! My goodness! It actually got me thinking about working at a gentlemen’s bar if I can find a man that Hot and Sexy! Wow! And even though it was in the POV of Sam like all the other previous books with only the heroine’s view, I didn’t mind it but gosh how I would love to get into Harrison’s head! I also really loved the chemistry between Sam and Harrison. They have a really hot and great chemistry. Not just because they have a very different background but because their sex drive and hunger for each other was so strong and out of the world that I couldn’t ignore it. Even from the very beginning it was there and not just because Sam was dressed skimpy in barely nothing or getting it down on the pole but man, I swear I could feel their sexiness oozing out of my Kindle! I just got to say I didn’t think Lisa can pull any thing up against Alessandro but man I was wrong. Harrison is my sexy Hunk for this year’s ‘Gotta have that Hunky Hot Sex Abs’! I might even have to start that Meme after him. Wow, I’m getting hot and giddy and you just have to pick this baby up when it releases! Thank you Lisa and the people at Harper Collins for giving me this opportunity to read this book!!! Phew. This eARC was provided by the Publishers via Edelweiss. Rate: 5 / 5

5 stars - Scorching hot with some surprises 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 surprised me was the fact that I didn't find myself judging her.  Yeah, she's made some poor choices but she's growing up and that happens.  Her mess is fixable...well at least at first.  I was a little put out by her parents.  I get why they cut her off but even if you stop throwing money at it they could have at least continued to call her.  That kinda had my mama bear claws out.   The Characters...Okay, Sam spends 90 minutes alone with Harrison and she's fallen for him.  I know, you're crying NO insta-love.  No worries.  The falling is chemistry.  Some smokin' hot chemistry.  And I think you have to count some of the time Sam was dancing and Harrison was watching her.  His attention has a very strong affect on her.  I never felt it was contrived.  Instead, I loved Sam and her willingness to work hard to figure things out.  When the mess becomes worse, I love that she grows up enough to realize she really hasn't made the best choices.  Made me love the girl and I, so, have her back.  No bad mouthing the dancer on my watch.  As for Harrison, I will admit to figuring something out just before it went down.  And, while I should be mad at the boy, I just can't be.  His situation is tough.  And he makes up for it in the end - I think.  Love them both. The Writing...I completely loved the writing.  There's been some books lately that I've struggled with and I was so in need of a good one.  When time went by in the story,  I never felt like I'd missed a bunch and story flowed well.  There was just the right amount of action and summary.  Very enjoyable to read. Could I put it down? Did I want to? NO. Did I have to? Yes. Read it over a couple of nights but I could have easily read it straight through if I had the time.  I certainly didn't want the breaks.  I found myself thinking about it at work and wondering about things.  In The End...Just what I needed after some less than great reads lately.  I really enjoyed this story and would recommend it to anyone who loves a very HOT romance with a few surprises.

This book was not what I was expecting. The story starts out hot and then had an interesting plot twist, but there's a large chunk in the middle that's really boring. The relationship between the main characters is much more innocent than the description would have you to believe. I wouldn't say the book is bad per se, it just wasn't my cup of tea

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 male. The plot and characters were well written this entire novel flows really well and it is one of those book that is very hard to put down until you reach the end. We meet Sam whose parents have just kicked her out of the house and cut her off financially because her lifestyle has just gotten her kicked out of college. Now she is in need of a job to survive and pay her rent once she finds a place to live at this point she is pretty much homeless. Thank god for her friend Jonathan he lets Sam stay at his place (short term) and even helps her secure a job as a dancer in a night club. One of the first evening Sam has to dance we meet Harrison, Sam is instantly attracted to him and seems to almost dance better when he is around. Harrison makes an appearance a few times at the club and even pays for a few private dances and you can feel the heat level rise. Sam cannot help herself and breaks a few of the rules the night club has for all their dancer and lets Harrison touch her. Once night things go a bit too far! But all is not what it seems and Sam is shocked when she finds out Harrisons has a big secret. I cannot say anymore at this point without having to include spoiler alerts. I will say that this novel is worth the read and if you like strong characters, hot alpha males filled with action, suspense, romance then this is the novel for you. I have rated A Little Too Hot a 4.5 and Lisa Desrochers has become an author I will defiantly be following to see what she comes up with next. I highly recommend A Little Too Hot!

Despite not reading the other books in this series, I was blown away. I mean, the beginning, with Sam meeting Harrison in the club and thinking he was her ex was explained well enough that I wasn't in any way lost. And holy smokes, was their chemistry hot. But just when I thought I knew where the story was going, BAM! The author threw in the mother of all plot twists and all I could do was hold on for the ride after that. It was pretty amazing that this author had me stumped right up until the end. I would recommend A LITTLE TOO HOT to anyone who loves their books smokin' hot and unpredictable. I'm going back to the other books now to see if they're as good as this one. If they are, this author will soon be on my auto-buy list.

    I wanted to read this one because I have enjoyed the others in the A Little Too Far series, and even Lisa's first series Personal Demons. Of course, I wanted to find out what she had in store for me in this one.           I could def relate with Sam, the main character. Life has dealt her a hard hand, and she feels like a disappointment to her parents. She's dropped (read failed) out of college, and she is semi-couch surfing. She is strong though, and she is open to accepting help from the people that are in her life.      Although I can't dance, I could still root for her as she went to Benny's untrained and a ball of nerves. But its not a strip club persay, she just dances and while she isn't wearing a ton of clothes, they all stay in place. This has to be such a hard situation, because you have to know that most of those girls are doing it for the money, and may feel like they don't have a choice. I do like though, that they get immersed into the culture and some of them discover they like it. Or at least aspects of it.      I liked Harrison at first, but the twist, oh the twist. It was hard to keep liking him. Although through many tv shows, I know the other side of it, but in this situation, I was pulling for Sam so it was a shock and slap in the face. The direction the story took after that was pretty unique, but I skimmed a bit. Until the karate scene. That is when my heart started really getting back into it. It was a hot scene, and the showing of a somewhat forbidden relationship. But then they were interrupted, which became quite the theme for their relation-whatever you wanna call it.           While this one was good, I enjoyed Lisa's other books better. I think once trust was broken with Harrison I couldn't get as fully into the romance.  Bottom Line:  While this one was good, I enjoyed Lisa's other books better. I think once trust was broken with Harrison I couldn't get as fully into the romance.

I really liked this author's, LD writing style. Great read with all the components you need to hold the reader's attention. Mystery, suspense and hot characters: Blake and Sam. Not your typical run of the mill romance, but roller coaster thrills and hot chemistry.... Good job well done. Will read books 1&2. LOVETOREAD

Some good twists and turns. Didn't quite do it for me though. Needed more heat, like in the beginning. S.A.K.

A Little Too Hot is the third book in the A Little Too Far series but can be read without reading the previous books, it´s considered a stand-alone. This book tells Samantha´s story, her life is a mess at the moment, she was expelled from college, her parents kicked her out and she just lost her job, so she ask her best friend Jonathan for help, who suggests her a work in a gentleman's club as a dancer. And once she realizes that it isn´t an actual strip club, but a place where she must dance with scantily-clad clothes (but she doesn´t have to strip) so she decides to take a chance on this new job and ends up loving it because she starts earning enough to solve her immediate problems. There she meets Harrison, an attractive man on her first day one, and he shows interest in her and no one can deny the strong attraction between them, but they can´t break the rules of the club, he cannot touch her and he must stay at a distance from her. But don´t worry because it is not instant-love, because the first time she dances for Harrison, she mistakes him with her ex-boyfriend, so she dances for him while trying to seduce him, but once she realizes her error, they just flirt and then in the private dances they get to talk and sort of know each other, and after several private dances, things get out of control and from then her life changes forever. The book is told from Sam´s POV, she´s very honest, strong, sexy but she hasn't got over her ex boyfriend. While Harrison is a confident man, who feels a great attraction for Sam, but he has a secret that threatens will complicate Sam´s life. Overall, I loved it! This book is fast-paced, with a plot full of action, suspense, danger and of course romance (which initially was sexual tension) and must say I really did not expect the twist that takes the story. I highly recommended this book and I will definitely read the other books in the series.

Samantha West was desperate. She needed to find a job to afford rent. Life was a little harsh when she flunked out of college, was dropped by her parents and now, she just lost a job. Her rocker best friend, Jonathan (whom I really like despite the naughtiness) hooks her up with a dancing job at a gentleman’s job. Again, she was desperate, she needed CASH, ASAP. Beggars can’t be choosers. After all, there were set of rules: she gets to keep her clothes, there was no touching involve and there was a distance of three feet that needed to be maintained. BUT on her first client – she realized that she MIGHT want to break all these rules. Harrison Yates is dangerous. He was sexy, attractive and he could seriously cloud her judgment. When he’s at the club, everyone would just simply vanish, and it was like she was dancing just for him. But he just got out of heartbreak after his fiancée left him at the altar. She was determined to make him forget. The attraction was strong, but Sam was afraid to act on it: she was afraid to lose her job, afraid she might be the rebound girl, and afraid that he might reject her. When she finally decided to act on it – all hell broke loose. Harrison Yates was not the person she thought he is… THIS ONE IS HOTTER, SEXIER and MORE DANGEROUS. A little warning though – this book may have you transfixed from the first page, down to the last. I love the characters, the twists and the surprises in between. Just as when you thought you have the idea of who might be the dangerous guy, you are once again proven wrong. It had kept me guessing, kept me wondering, I need to fight the temptation to skip and get to the final page to see how it all ends. The sexual tension was smoking through the pages, indeed, we always long for something we couldn’t have. It was slowly building, slowly rising – until it exploded into their faces, and they couldn’t hold it much longer. Lisa Desrochers had done it again. She already had me hooked from the first book in this series, and now on the third installment – I am still mesmerized on how good it turned out. I was not disappointed.  ¿ARC Copy was given in exchange for an honest review.¿

It first I was upset in parts of the book. Sam in parts of the book was stupid. Like you go in the VIP and the men asked do you no were I can get some drugs. Hello dumb..... I know that was a cop. Then he ask are you asking me for sex Hello..... she was dumb. But she did have a back bone. This book would have sucked. There was No Hot to this book. At the end have sex. I was mad it took the end of this book for them to have sex. AND I DO MEAN THE END. I almost stoped reading this book.
