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.
A Harmless Little Ruse is the second book in this political thriller/romantic suspense trilogy by USA Today bestselling author Meli Raine, and is entirely from Drew’s perspective.
JESUS CHRIST! I can not even comprehend the level of insanity that was A Harmless Little Ruse. I can’t. I have theories. So many theories; some of the crackpot variety, some that may hold more of an educated viewpoint. And I trust no one. NO ONE. Not even Lindsay and Drew.
I am so impressed with both books, I’ve read, in this trilogy. Meli Raine has done an amazing job of weaving hundred of lines of suspicion, thousands of details that lead in a million directions, and lending credence to each of them. Just when I think I’m sure I’ve figured out what is going on there is some sort of roadblock to that theory, but not a big enough to make that path impassable. It’s an amazing piece of artistry that she has woven. I imagine, if the books of this series were a tapestry, it would be enormous and vivid, primarily composed of red, blue, and purple, but with threads of the darkest black leading the eye away from the true focal point. It is also a picture that will never be seen without having the perfect perspective and a high enough vantage point.
I have been left on tenterhooks, flailing for some sort of solid ground on which to plant my feet. My mind is swirling, my heart racing, and my body aching from the intensity and stress this book put me through. And left me in. If i had access to A Harmless Little Game yesterday, it would not be soon enough. I need resolution. I need to know who and what and why and how and all of the things about the torture Lindsay and Drew were and are being subjected to. I’m dying, in the best way possible, to find all the answers that will end this series.
