A Harmless Little Game by Meli Raine



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.

My Review:
A Harmless Little Game (Harmless, #1)A Harmless Little Game by Meli Raine

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I'm giving this book 5 stars mostly because of how fast it gripped my attention and of how well it kept it.

Four years ago, Lindsay brutally lost her virginity on camera. The video went viral and
saw her torment. The kicker? Her boyfriend, Drew, the love of her life, sat there and watched it all. Didn't lift a damn finger to help her. During the four years, Lindsay was isolated at an institute for "recovery" (cute name for a mental institution), but now she's free and has come home. Except home isn't the same. Nothing is as it seems and her new "babysitter" is none other than deadbeat Drew. Some of the shocking truth is revealed but in no way is the story complete. In fact, it's just getting started.

The three boys were never charged for the rape and have gone on to become very successful in the time that Lindsay was away. I smell a revenge plot a mile away. Who can she trust? When will all of the secrets be revealed? Book 2 cannot come soon enough!!

Despite the sensitive nature of this story, the author did an incredible job of handling it delicately and respectfully. I love that Lindsay was no victim. She was a survivor and a fighter and the reader can't help but root for her. I'm glad she found an ally in the most unlikely person. I can't wait to see what these two come up with. There's drama, betrayals, lies and secrets, politics, friendships, and what seems to be the re-discovery of love. Leaving us with an intense cliffhanger, the author has me definitely eager for MORE!!

Recommended to those who like some romance with their suspense! xo
