A Harmless Little Game by Meli Raine Book Summary

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.


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.

So many questions. Really got into this story; I keep trying to figure out what’s coming up next; love the characters and will continue the series

Good story line. I found this story by an ad on Facebook and it intrigued me. I like the passion between Lindsay and Drew. I don’t understand the shadiness of her candidate father but I’m hoping the next book in the series can help clear some of That up.

Must Read. This is definitely a great read. I read the entire book in 3 days. It keeps you on the edge of your seat and wanting more. A page turner for sure. Looking forward to reading book 2.

Great. I could not put it down!

You have to buy the next book in series to find out the ending!. This is a novella in a series, which was not clear from the description. I was frustrated to see I have to pay for the next book in the series to actually see how the story ends. I won't be doing that. Interesting plot, mediocre writing, ridiculous romance. Great premise, could have been a great book.

Great series. I highly recommend all 3 books. Very good read!

Great free read. Right from the beginning this book had me hooked! On the edge of my seat the entire time, I couldn’t put it down! I found myself reading every single chance I got, and that’s not like me.

AMAZING. this is such a good book i downloaded earlier tonight and just finished it, highly recommend to read this!

Intriguing. Fast paced storyline that will keep you turning pages. Twists that keep you hanging. Not a stand-alone.

A Harmless Little Game. Excellent read!!

Wonderful read. Enjoyed this book very much. Can’t wait to continue the series.

This book is awesome!!!. Loved it

Sooooo dumb. It made absolutely no sense from the first page to the last. The main character Lindsey was dry, corny, naive and basically an adult with a five year old brain. Drew was a mix of many main characters from other famous books. Nice try but very bad storyline

WOW. This book will keep you on your toes until the end!! Lindsey and Drew are so real and you feel every emotion with them!! Can’t wait to read the next one!!

SO GOOD. Could not put down!

Read all 3 in a month!. I loved this series so much! After reading the first one had to get the other two to see how it ended..definitely couldn’t put it down! I recommend them all !!

A harmless little game. I hate a book that doesn’t have an ending and you have to buy he next book! I’m so glad I skipped to the end to see. Will not get another of her books.

Excellent Quick Read. I downloaded this book for free from and as in Facebook and was not disappointed. I would recommend this author and series to any reader that enjoys suspense plots and women's romance novels. Read this book in a day and it was worth it. The character and plot development forces you to keep reading because each chapter reveals a little bit more to help get you to the understand the extent of what happened that fateful night that started the plot in motion. The characters are extremely likable and the plot is completely relevant to today, speaking to sexual assault and how it affects people differently and the way people process. Granted not everyone has the luxury of being secluded from the world for 4 years after bit nevertheless it's an interesting plot twist that is relatable.

Excellent. A sadly twisted story. I found myself shocked and engaged with the awful direction as this tale progressed. It ends with the reader snapping up the next book to find out what happens next. And the hope that some type of justice is served. Excellent read, not for the faint of heart.

Trigger warning but very good. This book... just wow. Let’s start off with I couldn’t put it down! And if it wasn’t going on midnight I would definitely be opening book 2 immediately. Though this book may be a trigger for some people... I has an amazing story line and great flow to it. I can not wait to see where this story goes. Bravo

Harmless Little Game. Sorry ending. Left us hanging.

A Harmless Little Game. Ok, I’m a bit fed up with the whiny 1 ⭐️ reviewers on here. They aren’t reviewing based on the book’s story or the author’s writing capabilities, but rather that this TRILOGY ends in a cliffhanger (HELLO! TRILOGY! 🤦‍♀️) and that the entire series isn’t free so if they wish to finish the storyline they will have to purchase the other 2 books. Cry me a freaking river folks! Meli has several of her first in series books free, which she doesn’t HAVE to do! Just looking at the contents of her books on iBooks it’s obvious that all her books come in trilogies, so yes, you’ll have to fork over some cash for books 2 & 3. She is making a living after all! If YOU were the author would you be releasing nothing but free books? I don’t think so! I’ve read way to many “reviews” where people said they liked the book and the writing BUT were put off by the book being a cliffhanger and rated it 1 ⭐️ because of it. That’s not an authentic review when trilogies are the known style of an author. The people saying “I won’t be coming back to this author again! 😒” You got it for free in the first place! What did you risk? 🤣 Stop being a whiny little cheapskate and do a proper review about the BOOK. Not about a price you DIDN’T pay. I myself enjoyed the book, there have been many twists and turns in the plot. Every chapter brings new information and my theories on the endgame are constantly changing. I cannot wait to purchase the rest of the series and contribute to the author’s wages. 😉 I look forward to the other series starters I have downloaded by this talented writer. I’m sure I will be making additional purchases. Quality hard work should be rewarded.

A Harmless Little Game. A rousing story of love and betrayal. Funny how both come together. Looking forward to Book 2 since 1 is definitely a hanger.

A beautifully twisted, emotion-packed story. I think with any book an author has to really be connected to her characters in order to make you feel their every thought and emotion. This was just the beginning for Lindsay and Drew, there is so much more to their stories that will leave you twisted up and racking your brain to figure out what's next. Beware, it's emotional but definitely worth the read, I bought the other 2 books before I finished reading this one.

Can't put down!!. I loved this book. Such a terrific story. Very well written. I could not put it down. Can't wait to read the next one!!!!!

On the edge. I love a great romantic mystery book. This is a great read. thank you

Cliff hanger. I HATE endings like this one. The writer has alienated me forever from reading any more of her works. All to sell the next book in a series, really? Meli has good writing ability but poor judgment about endings.

Omg !. I loved this book!! I read it all within days ! I don’t like how I have to purchase the next one but I definitely will because this one was amazing !

Absolutely love it. Great book just bought the series. I can't wait to start the second one 😍

Not worth buying second book in series. Weird story with too much foul language and sex scenes to fill up pages that add nothing to the story. Does not end because you are expected to buy the next book to have any kind of ending. Cannot recommend this book.

Cliffhanger. Not a bad book if you like being left hanging with no ends tied up at all.

Great series!. Loved all of the books. They definitely keep you interested.

So intense!. This book is fantastic! It covers every emotion and is as suspenseful as a Hitchcock movie! I know I'll be reading the next in the series very soon.

Amazing!. I read this in one night because I couldn’t put it down. It’s so great and I can’t wait to read the next one! I’m definitely hooked on this series!

Harmless little game. I was kept in suspense throughout this book, and can't wait to read the remaining books in this series.

Suspense definitely. I couldn't put this down. When I finished, I waited as long as possible so I could get some things done... waited one day, nothing done... to start the next. Great book.

Sad. This is well written and a painful but must read.

Could not put down!. This storyline kept me wanting to turn the pages, read in one night, when I should have went to sleep. The twist and turns were awesome, have the rest of the series!

Love it. This book kept me interested until I finished.

Another cliffhanger........ The story is interesting but not enthralling. I almost abandoned the read midway, but stuck it out, only to find it's not a standalone. Arrrr!

Harmless little ruse. Good read!!!

WOW!!!. So many twist. And this is a only part 1.

Harmless little game series. Absolutely loved this book!! Loved the whole series I read them all in a weekend!

LOVED IT. I downloaded this and the rest of the books in the series and read them all in one day. Definitely one of my favorites now. I will be reading them again soon.

A HARMLESS LITTLE GAME. Loved the book. Sorted of far fetched urging read. Bring on book2!

Harmless Little Game. Totally loved it!!

My new favorite!. I could not put this down! I loved it and would love this as a movie! I look forward to reading the next 2 👍

The Three Part Book, Part One. There's no doubt Meli Raine can write and keep a reader's attention, unfortunately, she's part of the new author trend, the serial novel. These are often short romantic suspense stories that aren't resolved in the first book, or the second for that matter, forcing the reader who wants to know the outcome to buy the successive books. And, that alone is the reason for the 3 star rating; the writing deserves much more. The plot is original, the heroine is likable, the villains are truly villainous, the hero is handsome and heroic and the action moves swiftly. If you give in and buy all three they are good beach or rainy day books. I binge read all of them in a day!

A 5 star read!!!!. I read A LOT of books. I don't usually give 5 star ratings unless it's something I would consider reading again. It's hard to find books that I can't put down from the first to last sentence of the book. This is one of them and deserves more reviews. This book was well written, has a great flow and a great story line. I know it sounds awful about a girl getting gang raped, and it is awful, but it's how she is dealing with it, with reality and sticking up for herself which isn't always easy, especially when her father is running for president. You will not regret reading this and I can't wait to read the next two books.

It deserves more than 5. This book is just amazing! Deserves more recognition! It had me feeling all emotions at once, can’t wait to start the next one!

The harmless series. I really loved this book series, I haven’t quite felt the same since reading it and find my self struggling to connect with any other book. At the same time I’m refraining from reading the next 3 books following Janes story as I am considered it won’t feel the same and well I just wish I could have my mind wiped so I could read this trilogy again.

A harmless little game. A can’t put down book once you’ve started reading

Great story. Brilliant

Fantastic story. Had me hooked from the start. Fantastic read

Stupid click bait. Don't read

A thirst for knowledge. Lindsay has suffered. She suffered 4 years ago and is still suffering now. Her wounds may have healed but her need for revenge, for the people who did unspeakable acts to her remain strong. She doesn't know everything that happened that night and people are still keeping things from her. The world thinks she's guilty, only she's not. She was betrayed by her boyfriend, he just let everything happen, or did he? Her love for him remains strong even though it shouldn't, that's what she keeps telling herself. I really love the two main characters in this book. It intrigues you and draws you in until you are thirsty for more. Oh believe me I want more.

AMAZING !!!!!!. Perfect story line, Always keeps you guessing. Read all 3 books in 2 days.

Thank you.. Read in just over an hour. Love it.

Amazing. I’m not one for reading, but I was gripped by this book and had to read the other two. Absolutely amazing a must read

A Harmless Little Game. Absolute rubbish

Awesome. Best series..

Wow. Awesome book. I’m going to have to read book two ❤️

Waste of time dribble. This book gripped me for the first few paragraphs, then it started showing inconsistencies and illogical concepts and I was getting angry at the unbelievable behaviour of the characters. I persisted to the end, expecting some clever twist, but sadly it just got worse. I started reading it without realising it is part of a series, and getting to the last page without any resolution was frustrating. There is not even an explanation of what the "Harmless little game" is. Maybe that refers to the game the author is playing with her readers. Waste of time. Needless to say I won't buy the remaining instalments.

Brilliant book. A page turner!

A Harmless little game. Fantastic read. Could not put it down.

Couldn't put it down. Great read. Couldn't put the book down. Felt I was second guessing everything I was reading to see if there was more to it. Love Lindsay and how feisty she is! Can't wait to read book 2, I'm hooked!

Amazing book. Wow - great book, couldn't put it down as its such a page turner. Love the characters, author did a great job keeping me engaged throughout.

Awesome series! Could not put it down!. Worth it! I'd buy/read all three!

Don’t get duped. Don’t like that it’s not a complete book, they try to get you to buy the rest of the story, don’t bother.

Must read. This is a fab series, read all 3 in 3 days, brilliant

Loved it. This book is one you just cant put down! Read all 3 in 3 days!

A harmless little Game. What an intriguing book, read it in less than 24 hours... couldn't put it down, just a bit miffed we have to pay for the next one, keep us hooked and draw us in hey?! A 'must' read 👍🤓

Absolutely amazing.. Hands down the best book I have ever read on my phone. I wish I could carry on reading and have it never end!!! I couldn’t put the book down and I read it all within a few hours. Well done!

Absolutely amazing!. Brutal, honest, and downright fantastic. I couldn’t put it down! It’s one of those books that transports you into another world, and a one which dominates your day until you’re finished. Would DEFINITELY recommend!

A Harmless Little Game. Wow, wow, wow!!! This book is a real page turner. The emotion is so believable, you can put yourself in Lindsay’s shoes. Can’t wait to read the next instalment.

Brilliant. OMG. This book is absolutely brilliant. I couldn't put it down. The characters are great and the plot is superb. I can't wait to read the next one. Absolutely loved it.

A harmless little game. Really enjoyed this book. Looking forward to next in the series. 👍👍👍👍👍😁

Loved it!. Very good book. I was captivated the whole way through. Severely excited for the rest of the series!

3 stars. 3 stars

A Harmless Little Game. Wonderful book 👍🏻👍🏻

Not for the feint of heart. Meli Raine is a new author to me and I will certainly be looking into her other books as soon as time allows. There is a cliff hanger at the end, so be warned. Well where do I start? Firstly there is NOTHING harmless about this game. You feel as though you are on a roller coaster which is out of control and you have no idea where you are going to end up. Lindsay Bosworth is a broken and shattered woman, the result of a traumatic and horrific attack 4 years ago. She has been kept secluded from the public eye since the attack occurred and was plastered all over social media. Even worse than the 3 men who attacked her, her boyfriend sat by and let it all occur, or did he? When she is finally allowed to return to her family, her father sends her bodyguard to escort her home, only problem is that it is Andrew “Drew” Foster, her ex boyfriend. Thrust back into her life, Lindsay has to battle not only her demons but her feelings for the man she believes betrayed her. Not knowing who she can trust she second guesses almost everyone in her life. This was a raw, gritty read that was at time emotional and certainly not for the feint of heart. Well written, the suspense and political intrigue got me from the start and I once I finished I immediately had to one click the remaining two books so that I could find out what happened.

No Harm..... This is a first book for me by this author and absolutely loved it!! Had intrigue, suspense and smouldered at the same time. Can’t wait for Book 2.

I couldn’t put this done!!. Omg!! Love! Love! Love! Urghhh I can’t even explain!

So good. Read in one day , so good

What a rush. Wow is all I can say. You know those books you can’t put down till you know the whole truth this is it. I got this book for free, never heard of the author, never read any of their books but wow I’m a fan. I’m off to get more what an a amazing storyline. I love/hate the characters they are written so well. The emotional journey that the author has taken you on made me cry, hurt and angry at what happened and happens to Lindsay. What an amazing courageous woman she is. If you have the opportunity to get a book then certainly try this one.

Couldn’t put in down. I couldn’t put it down! Such a great book and I’ve just started the second book ❤️

Harmless little game. Good read. Lots going on, complicated story line but interesting.

History is written by the best spin doctors. To me, this book is mostly about setting the stage: introducing us to the major players, giving us the history of the situation, and explaining why Lindsay is at the point she is. I’ve heard it said that “history is written by the victors”, and with today’s media-machine history is written by the best spin doctors. I’m hooked now to see who’s pulling the strings behind the scenes and how Lindsay and Drew will get their justice.

I hate cliffhangers!. You wont find out who did it unless you buy the next book or two. I detest when authors do this with no warning.

"A Harmless Little Game" by Meli Raines. The book begins describing a horrific event which immediately captures your attention. It's very raw, disturbing, emotional and painful to read. The author describes brilliantly how Lindsay understands and "plays" the psychiatric institution in order to "escape". One can't help but feel mortified and ashamed at how Lindsay was treated by her family and supposed friends who should have been there to support her. Instead, she was just an agenda item. In addition, Lindsay is both mortified to still desire Drew and hate him at the same time. There is so much intrigue going on, you have no idea who to trust. Superb book!

5 Stars. Such a great book! Kept me on my toes and the cliffhangers got me wanting more! Great read.

A tease. The author has a way of spinning a story that catches the imagination, the only problem is that the whole story is a tease to get readers to purchase the other books in the series at an inflated price. I have no patience for this type of marketing as usually the follow up books lack the quality of the first.

Heartbreaking, suspense filled..... Wow amazing, I was given this free advanced readers copy for an honest review.... What to say, Lindsay at the age of 18 goes through the most traumatic thing a young girl could every go through. After 4 years she has to now defend herself once again... And to top it all off her ex friend / boy friend is going to protect her. Heartbreaking to learn things that Lindsay would have never guessed in a million years. But will she fight her demons or let them walk all over her once again. Loved this book lots of suspense and can't wait to read more.

Wonderful story. Loved it!

Do do that. Don't give me part of a story. I can guarantee I will NEVER purchase one of your books.

Good story. What happens next, I want to know.
