Book 2, Harmless
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
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.

Leaves You Panting for the Next
I received this ARC for an honest review. Mel Raine has done it again! When I read the first book, I was left wanting the next one, and wondering how I could wait for the next book. Now, I am wild to find out just how things end! Lindsay and Drew come together but trust is definitely lacking on both their parts. Is she using him? Is he using her? They each learn more about each other, but questions remain. What really happened four years ago? What is Drew’s secret, and will it come out? So many questions left unanswered—including just WHO is the puppet master who keeps just a step or two ahead of Drew and his team? I can’t hardly wait!!!!
Wow! What a 90 mile an hour thrill ride this book was! I was so close to the edge of my seat, a couple of times, I almost wound up in the floor. I was at a little bit of a disadvantage never having read the first book, but it didn't hamper my enjoyment of this book one bit. These characters are so real and raw and honest, and the chemistry between Drew and Lindsay is just off the charts. You're drawn right into the story from the get go, and you remain riveted to the very last page. This is a story full of intrigue and heartbreak and lost innocence and guilt and shame and mistrust and redemption and most of all, love. Throughout it all, there is always love. I adored this book! I would highly recommend it and I can't wait for the next book in the series, A Harmless Little Plan.
* I received an ARC of this book from the author and voluntarily chose to review. All opinions are my own.
I couldn't put it down!!!!! I loved seeing Drew's POV. It was very enlightening. It was great to see them grow closer together. The mystery heightens while the story line continues to unfold. A story filled with passion, love, hidden truths, enemies in plain site, misguided trust, and mystery! Can't wait for book three!
