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 EVERYONE 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
