    Absolutely Riveting!!!

    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.

    Gripping and suspenseful!

    A Harmless Little Ruse is the second part of the Harmless Trilogy by Meli Raine. [If you have not read A Harmless Little Game, you should stop reading this review now, and go and read the book!] This book had me gripped from start to finish. I could not put it down and read it in one sitting! The story is told from Drew's perspective and begins with him waking to find Lindsay and his gun missing, prompting panic and fury on Drew's part. As the story develops, we learn more about Drew and the secret that he is hiding from Lindsay. I loved the way the passion between Drew and Lindsay developed, the hope and resolve that it gave to their relationship and the enhanced desire for revenge. I was left heartbroken by Drew's secret, that I figured out quite early on, and how he didn't want Lindsay to find out. There were moments where I was enraged and desperate for revenge to be delivered to the rapists, and those involved. The hints of a puppeteer had me intrigued, and creating many conspiracy theories and needing to know what happens next! The ending of the book was most intense, and I was left screaming NO! A Harmless Little Ruse will have readers on the edge of their seats, experiencing an emotional roller-coaster. Meli Raine delivered a excellently executed suspenseful story, and I am desperate to read the final part to the story. I really hope that heads roll and that Drew and Lindsay kick some ass and have a happy ending.

    a fantastically breathtaking epic level thriller

    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.

    A Must Read! I was completely enthralled!!

    Wow! I was completely captivated! Couldn't put it down! This is the 2nd book in the series. This book is thrilling and full of every emotion. It constantly keeps you guessing at what is coming next and who you can/cannot trust. Drew & Lindsay find their trust for each other again & love. If you like thrilling books with romance & intrigue, you'll love this one (and the whole series)! I received an ARC copy for an honest review. LOVED IT!! Can’t wait for the next one!
