Review: A Harmless Little Ruse by Meli Raine

aharmlesslittleruseAbout A HARMLESS LITTLE RUSE (Harmless #2)

She has no idea what she’s doing. Loose cannons never hit their targets.

And they take out plenty of collateral damage.

Four years ago Lindsay experienced the unspeakable right before me, and I couldn’t stop them.

But that’s all changed now.

When her father, Senator Bosworth, contacted me to ask — demand — that I protect her, it was a second chance. A shot at redemption.

An opportunity to right an unspeakable wrong.

Controlling Lindsay as she seeks her revenge on the monsters who hurt her won’t be hard.

Containing my own out-of-control feelings for Lindsay and keeping up this ruse of cold-blooded distance will be.

Even harder than admitting to her what really happened that night four years ago.

It turns out I don’t have to, though.

Someone else did it for me.

And I’ll make sure they regret it.

REVIEW

This is book two of a three part series and while I don’t quite know the who and what of it, I’m enjoying the journey to finding out. Book two is told from Drew’s point of view. What our heroine went through was traumatic in book one, but our hero has not gone unsuffered (Goodreads is trying to tell me that’s not an actual word, but I like it). There are some revelations as to what Drew went through, but not many details.
The story doesn’t move along very fast at first but then it starts to change the plot’s direction. So much so, that it builds anticipation. There’s not a whole lot of romance between the MCs, which I would’ve liked but there is the consistent theme of second chance love. I have some ideas as to who might be involved but I am looking forward to unraveling the mystery in the third book.

Safety: It is confirmed that Drew slept with OW during their separation. Big time yes to rape and abuse.

FINAL RATING: 5 STARS

About A HARMLESS LITTLE GAME (Harmless #1)

Four years ago I lost my virginity on live, streaming television.

Too bad I wasn’t awake for it.

The video went viral. Of course it would. A Senator’s daughter on camera? Wouldn’t you click “share”? Besides, that’s what three of the four guys in the video did.

Share.

They shared me.

But that fourth guy? The nondescript one in the background in the upper left corner of the screen, just sitting on the couch? The only one who did nothing?

Not one single thing.

That was my boyfriend, Drew.

And that was the last time I saw him.

Until today, when my father—now on a path to the White House—hired him as head of security for my new team as I return home after four years of “recovering” in an undisclosed location that involved white lab coats, needles, pills and damage control.

You see, the other three guys never went to jail. Never had charges pressed.

Never faced consequences.

Until today.

Game on.
