Turns out there was a second video from that awful night four years ago. Mine wasn’t the only tape.
Too bad mine wasn’t the worst.
Drew can’t protect me no matter how hard he tries, but the roles are flipped now. I have to help him, but I’m not wired that way. Not anymore. That one night changed me more than anyone knows.
More than anyone could predict.
Three men think they’re above the law. They’re right.
But I’m willing to go beneath the law to make sure they never harm anyone else. Their threats don’t scare me.
When you have nothing left to lose because someone took it all away, you create the most dangerous creature imaginable.
A Harmless Little Plan is the final book in this political thriller/romantic suspense trilogy by USA Today bestselling author Meli Raine.
This series kept me on tenterhook for nearly its entirety. I was just hoping for a little more resolution in this final book.
A Harmless Little Plan, especially the first 75% or so was everything I could have hoped for. It was the ending that left me unfulfilled. It just didn’t give me all of the answers I was looking for. Yes, there were reasons we didn’t get some of the answers I wanted and I mostly accept that but there were other things that seemed glossed over. Lines that were partially answered then left unresolved. For me, it just didn’t fit with the rest of the series.
Up until that last 25% percent of the final book of this trilogy I was completely in awe of Meli Raine. She seemed uninfluenced by what the romance community has come to expect from a romance novel. It was only in that last small fraction that she seemed to cave to those whimsies. I wish I could have got that same quality of storytelling to end the series.
Think about Drew, I tell myself. Remember his arms, how he smells. Look around the bathroom. There’s a can of shaving cream. A bar of used soap. A toothbrush holder with a crooked toothbrush hanging from it. The sink is messy, with small speckles on it. An electric razor is next to the shaving cream.
Huh. Wonder why he shaves both ways.
As I breathe my way to a relaxed state, I let myself indulge in imagining what it would have been like to become domestic with Drew. To come here and hang out. Spend the night. Slowly work our way toward a long-term relationship. Mom and Daddy would never put up with my living with him, but eventually, we’d get married.
My ring finger on my left-hand tingles at the thought.
Mrs. Andrew Foster.
Years ago, I had these fantasies. I lived a life before the attacks where I could be like any other woman, dreaming about the future. We even talked, tentatively, about what life would be like after Drew graduated from West Point.
We were just about there.
And then it was all taken from us.
