A Harmless Little Ruse

A Harmless Little Ruse by Meli Raine Book Summary

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.

- Continued from the 1st book.4 star

If you want to finish book 1 you can't. You have to continued book 2, literally. An unfortunately the same goes for book 2... have to read book three. I guess it's how they make any money. Great book,but I'd rather the 3 books be 1, which is what it is.

- Edge of your seat5 star

I happened on the first book by chance. Loved it, couldn’t put it down! Had to buy the second right away and just finished it. These books have kept me on the edge of my seat turning page after page waiting breathless to see who the mole is!!!!! Guess I will head to the bookstore for the last. Can’t wait !

- Unbelievable. Fabulous. Amazing.5 star

Meli Raine writes the best fiction. Let’s just mention that the intrigue of this series is beyond top notch. I have read Clancy, Ludlum, Johansen, DeMille, Cornwell, Flynn, Martini and Thor - to mention just a few of the authors who excel at great novels. This author is in their league. Not only are the intricacies of the plot amazing, but she has believable characters and love woven into the story. READ this series. I can’t wait to get into the next book.

- Awesome read!!!5 star

Yeah, great book!!! So ready to read the final book in the trilogy!

- Totally addicting!5 star

I loved the first one!! I was a lil disappointed that this one was through Drew, especially not backing up to the day he picked Lindsey up from the Island but it still is AWESOME!! I have read all through 4 times now and I've only owned them for a few weeks!! A must have series!! (I hope they make a movie too!)

Excellent read!!

- Wow, Wow, WOW!!!!5 star

Can't wait for this puzzle to straighten out.

- Round 24 star

The second book of this collection has a lot more humor and don't leave me hanging, unlike the first. The storyline was not elongated or frustrated me getting to the point. Now, I'm excited to began the final book in this collection and can't wait to read if everything comes to light...meaning my suspicions were right!!!

- Must read!!!!5 star

I am loving this series!! Love the story. I seriously cannot put these book down. I'm on to the last. I hope there is more from this author!

- A Harmless Little Game5 star

Drew and Lindsay fight against family, friends, enemies and political foes. Excited to confirm if or not, those that I suspect are guilty in book three.

- a fantastically breathtaking epic level thriller5 star

A Harmless Little Ruse is a fantastically breathtaking epic level thriller that will wrap its dangerous fingers around your heart until you are caught in a web much too tangled and slippery to ever free yourself. The only solution is to ride out this lethal mystery until its deadly end. Along the way, you will learn more then you ever wanted about the dark side of humanity through the eyes of a man who refuses to admit defeat in his desperate attempt to both protect and love the one woman who holds his heart and soul captive. This is one romantic thriller that will literally have you on the edge of your seat the entire time. You will get no time outs as you navigate the twisted and manipulative world of politics where anything goes for a price and anyone’s loyalty can easily be bought and sold. Drew has lived a non-stop nightmare for the past 4 years. He couldn’t protect the woman he loved, so all he has left is revenge. When he was requested to protect Lindsay, he knows he has been given a second chance. The last thing he wants to do is waste this precious gift, and yet how can he protect her and get close to her again? With stubborn determination, he sets out to both protect Lindsay and set his own plan in motion. What he doesn’t anticipate is Lindsay. She isn’t the same girl he fell in love with. She’s changed and is so much more than he ever imagined. Can he pull her close while keeping his secrets locked up, or will she prove to be the wildcard he never counted on and send his plan in a tail spin of death? If I thought that Chase, Allie, Mark, and Carrie got under my skin, I was in no way prepared for Drew and Lindsay. How could anyone be? These two have suffered and endured the unspeakable, and yet they still are made to suffer for something they can’t even comprehend. When you have no allies on your side and trusting anyone could bring death, how can you move ahead without shattering and becoming completely undone by fear and despair? Instead, these two extraordinary characters have chosen to hold onto each other and fight for all they are worth. When the world is against you, you keep a strangle hold onto the only love and hope that you can find. They have come so far, and I absolutely love how they have made themselves so vulnerable to the other for the sake of a glimpse of hope and love that they can’t afford to hold onto. What a beautiful testament to the human spirit we see in Drew and Lindsay. Meli Raine is one outstanding author who continues to shine and brighten my world. Without her extraordinary gift, I would feel a definite void in my heart. Her writing it something not to be missed! If you are looking for perfection in the literary world, then she is as close as you will ever get.

- Awesome!!!!5 star

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!

- Absolutely Riveting!!!5 star

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.

- Leaves You Panting for the Next5 star

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!!!!

2nd great instalment in the trilogy of love, intrigue and suspense.

- Harmless little ruse5 star

Omg! So many twists and turns, I feel like I am upside down. Certainly hope Lindsay suprises them all! Next book.. stat!! 👍👍👍👍👍😁

- Another great read5 star

What an amazing series. This is such a beautifully written story that I cannot wait to read more. I haven’t been able to put this down. The author has written a beautiful sensitive story about issues that I pray never happen to anyone.

- A harmless little ruse1 star

Quite frankly, one of the worst books I’ve read in a while. The rape is glorified as though from a perverts POV. I skipped entire paragraphs at a time praying it would improve to justify the “ taking New York by storm” accolade. Definitely give this one a skip.

- Drew is the man5 star

Drew has spent 4 years training and honing his skills with one goal in mind. To protect Lindsay and to be there for her when he couldn't. Drew is a determined and fierce character. He loves Lindsay, the only woman he has ever loved. He wants to be her everything but can she trust him. She has spent 4 years believing he did nothing to help her hen in fact he couldn't. In her heart she knows the truth. This is part 2 of a 3 part story. It has you gripped and wanting to know more. I really enjoyed this book and the characters. Bring on part 3

- Must read5 star

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

- Brilliant!5 star

I loved this book! Once I started I could not put it down, was a definite page turner. Would definitely recommend this book for people to read!
