Blog Tour: 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. Share. 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. * * * A Harmless Little Game is the first in this political thriller/romantic suspense trilogy by USA Today bestselling author Meli Raine.


Get your hands on A HARMLESS LITTLE GAME now:


WOW! A Little Harmless Game is anything but dull or harmless.  This is book one in a series about an event that happens to Lindsay and the fallout from it.  The story is written in the present, but gives us flashbacks and insights into the past surrounding the incident. 

Diving straight in, we start the book present day, when Lindsay is being released from an institution where she's been recovering from the trauma she suffered, but also unknown to many, she's been there to protect the truth of what happened that night.  Lindsay isn't all that keen to keep things a secret though, she wants revenge and she wants the truth known. 

Lindsay is shocked and upset when she discovers her father hired her ex, Drew to be in charge of her security. She hates true and can never forgive him for what she believes he did, his betrayal. But Lindsay doesn't know all of the details and she doesn't understand what has happened since she was sent away to heal. 

Drew seems to be a decent guy during most of this book, but there are bits and pieces where I have to question his sincerity and how truthful he's being, so I'm withholding judgement until I read more of the series and get a true handle on his character.  He definitely cares about Lindsay and feels remorse, he doesn't want her to be hurt by decisions that were made in her stead.  

This book has a touch of suspense to it as well, keeping us guessing and curious about things to come.  It builds up to quite a climax, leaving me heart pounding and breathless about what is going to come out next. What other truths are buried, what other secrets have been kept, what lies have been propagated. 

Meli Raine has created a world of  political intrigue, revenge, and questioning loyalties and stirred up in this angsty dramatic story. That she leaves us hanging, full of questions and theories means I'm hooked and hanging on the ledge for book two.
