Review of book 1, A Harmless Little Game
Review of book 2, A Harmless Little Ruse

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.


Game over.

The BEST book of the series! Virtually every question I had since book 1, A Harmless Little Game, was answered!

This book picked up where the last one left off. Lindsay has been kidnapped by someone impersonating Mark Paulson (Drew’s friend). Through Drew, we realize that the a-holes who assaulted them have her. Drew needs to save her but he’s been locked up on suspicion of stalking/terrorizing Lindsay (set up!) On top of that, he isn’t sure who to trust. Even members from his own team fall under his suspicion in this conspiracy.

I appreciated the way the author used the dual character POV. From one to the next, the story grew more intense and suspenseful. Each POV gave great insight as to what Drew and Lindsay were seeing, thinking and feeling and their perspectives ran almost parallel to each other. I didn’t notice any gaps to the plot or have to question what was going on with each character.

I wasn’t so much impressed with the reason for the attacks on Drew and Lindsay four years ago and at present. I think I pretty much figured it out already. However, I was impressed with how far these evil people were willing to go to further their agendas. I was quite satisfied with how Drew and Lindsay were able to extract justice.

I loved the time the author dedicated to dealing with the aftermath of everything that happened. Drew and Lindsay’s trauma and recovery seemed authentic and it wasn’t rushed or downplayed. My only real disappointment was with the way this series ended. While there was a very sweet HFN, I wanted a real epilogue. I believe that this couple truly deserved one.

Overall, this series was incredible. Be prepared to feel moments anxiety, stress, shock, confusion, joy and good cheer!
