That being said I tried to step back and write a fair and honest review. I think this may be the very best thing I've read by this author. When I received the ARC I was in the middle of reading another book. I was good, I finished it and wrote my review, cooked and ate dinner and then sat down and read this book in one sitting. I could not put it down. Maura Dillion is Conner’s baby sister and the light of his life. She is also a genius geek and all grown up although you wouldn't know it from the way he treats her. Maura is frustrated as she hasn't been in a relationship since she and Zeke (Conner’s best friend and business partner and Maura’s co-worker) stopped seeing each other. She still loves him but he can’t give her what she needs sexually and now he is back with his first love Rory. Rory had a near death experience epiphany that made him realize he loved and needed Zeke in his life forever. Rory realizes Zeke is still somewhat in love with Maura and his confidence is shaky, a new feeling for him. Zeke should be happy. Rory is back and says he is staying. If he leaves again it will tear him up beyond repair. He still loves Maura and has never felt as bad as he did when he realized he couldn't be all that she needed. When Rory finds out why Zeke and Maura broke up he gets an awful wonderful idea. Conner has them all going to Hawaii for a week to get them out of town while the FBI handles a case that Conner & Zeke's company helped them build against a cartel. Maura needs a Dom and Rory is a Dom but only with women, Zeke likes to watch he knows this as they've shared before. Maybe they can have it all for a week and get it out of Zeke and Maura’s system and have a little fun in the process. But when it actually happens he is surprised to find himself being drawn to Maura as well. Can they take a fantasy and make it work for a lifetime? Warning this book puts out more steam than a Hawaiian volcano. In most ménage stories I have a problem with seeing how the personalities would mesh long term. Not so here. It is like they are the missing parts of each other. I loved the characters in this story but was especially impressed with how strong Maura was. If you want a truly smoking ménage read this book.

    I have been waiting for this one since Maura and Zeke first turned up in the series and was more intrigued by them when in the last book we were introduced to Rory and his place in Zeke's life. When the trio first got to Hawaii I loved how they were, their chemistry was off the charts and each of their kinks played into the others, so that was a bonus.

I really liked that Zeke and Maura knew they loved each other, that Rory and Zeke loved each other, the only wild card was going to be how Maura and Rory interacted. I loved seeing both of them fall for the other, especially Rory because he kept giving excuses. I wondered how that would resolve itself, too bad it took most of the rest of the book. I hated how Zeke, Rory, and even Connor couldn't/wouldn't listen to what Maura said about being attacked. This is what started the first cracks in the new relationship that was so fragile, the loss of trust. Things only went downhill from there with trust being at the center of things. I hated how Maura seemed to spiral inside herself, hiding away, but really why wouldn't she, no one would listen to her. I loved it when finally Maura was proven right, but hated how things unfolded from there. It was great that instead of waiting to be rescued, Maura rescued herself. I was very disappointed Zeke and Rory when they let Maura go. Turns out that Zeke had a plan, he had to get Rory to admit his feelings for Maura or things wouldn't work. I loved how Zeke did this and then how the men went after their girl. As glad I was to see the boys go after Maura, I liked that she made them work for her affections again, that she didn't rollover let them walk all over her. The ending was great and I can't wait to see more of them in other books.

    Ha Cha-cha. Give me a fan and let me cool down. This book was just plain hot. This was my first Melissa Schroeder read and let me tell you it will not be my last. You would think that being ordered by your boss and brother to spend a week or so in Hawaii with your super-hot, dark skin, Irish coworkers, would be the shit. Well Maura Dillon has a slight issue with that. Maura has had more than one fantasy about her coworkers, Zeke (Maura's ex and hot guy number one) and Rory (hot guy number two an Ha Cha-cha.

Well Maura Dillon has a slight issue with that. Maura has had more than one fantasy about her coworkers, Zeke (Maura's ex and hot guy number one) and Rory (hot guy number two and Zeke's current and longtime love.) Her past with Zeke, makes her think is not a good idea. Rory seductively propositions Maura to spend the time in Hawaii playing with them. Zeke could not be the Dom the she needed but lets her in on Zekes secret. He liked to watch and the rumors about him were true. Yes, Rory was a Dom! Maura tries to come up with a good reason this not to do this. She gives into her desires and hops on this wild and emotional ride that pushes the trio to each of their limits to hold on. I went looking for a hot read. I got that and more in A Little Harmless Fantasy. A great story filled with a wealth of emotion, passion and naughtiness. Characters with alluring personalities, that make you want to like, feel for them and even yell at a time or two! Real life issues add flair and the right bit of drama! OMG, those dirty talking Irishmen, I could hear those accents in mind!!! Hands down this was a great book. A 5 Star read! I will be going back to the beginning of the series and read more!!!

    Unfortunately this was my least favorite read this year. Not only does it have major editing errors, but the story is choppy, annoying, and the characters make me want to strangle them. The story didn't feel well developed making it difficult to read. Suffice to say, I had many issues with this book and it was nearly a DNF.

She's re-issuing these stories now that he has the rights back and the newest ones, Ride & Secret, are being expanded. Maura Dillon is the computer expert for her brother's security company. She is incredibly intelligent and went to college as a young teen. That causes personal and relationship issues, she's always known she was different. She was pretty much raised by her much older brother Conner when their parents were killed and she has a very close relationship with him. Her best friend from college is now married to Conner. Conner's best friend and business partner is Zeke has a past relationship with Maura and they still love each other. It didn't work out because Maura knows she's a sub and Zeke can't give that to her. The book starts a few years after Zeke and Maura's break-up. Zeke is now living with his lover Rory whom he's known since his teens. They grew up in Ireland and worked undercover for the government. Now Rory works in Connor & Zeke's security company. They've had an on again, off again relationship. Rory is committed to stay and he knows Zeke and Maura still love each other. His solution is to try a threesome on a vacation week in Hawaii as he and Zeke have a history of sharing women. Rory hopes Zeke works Maura out of his system. Instead it becomes more for all of them. Rory is a Dom and Maura feeds his needs. What starts as short term fun becomes more very quickly. To complicate matters it seems someone is out to kill or hurt Maura. Danger always amps up the emotions and Rory falls hard for Maura. This is a fabulous story of finding you can open your heart and trust someone else to love you through the difficult times in life. That you must trust and see with your heart, have faith. Thank you Melissa for adding me to your review team.

Lucky for Maura, Rory is just the Dom for the both of them. Underlying all the delicious sexy action is an untraditional love story of three people who need each other in all the traditional ways. This story really works because the author takes the reader inside the hearts and minds of the characters so we can see how deep and true their love for each other is. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

Love and relationships are heard work and this shows that. The characters are so relatable even though it is a menage that you can feel what they are feeling. That is such a beautiful thing about Melissa's writing.

    This book is hot, hot, hot! Maura being the smart girl with an over protective big brother is always taking on everything. She has been in love with Zeke for awhile now and then in comes Rory who is love with Zeke. This three have some massive chemistry. I really enjoyed this book and the Little Harmless series. I love the BDSM aspect as well as the true feelings that really show in Melissa's words. A fabulous book!

    Great series I love this series. This is the story of Maura who is from a previous book and Conners sister. She is coming to Hawaii with two of her other co-workers and 1 is an ex-boyfriend. Someone is watching Maura and the guys are trying to keep her safe. Except that things happen and Maura gets to live out a fantasy with Zeke her ex and Rory who is Zeke's boyfriend. Things get hot in Hawaii. Love this series. Love these characters. Lots of old characters making appearances.

    "...Zee likes to watch.” He teased her earlobe with his teeth as her brain shut down. God that felt good. She hadn’t had a man since Zee and it had been so long. “He what?" She asked closing her eyes enjoying the way his teeth grazed her ear. He took his sweet time answering her. Of course, she didn’t really care because what he was doing to her ear lobe had her entire soul humming. “He likes to watch me tie a woman up and dominate her.” The image he was creating was a little too much for her to "...Zee likes to watch.” He teased her earlobe with his teeth as her brain shut down. God that felt good. She hadn’t had a man since Zee and it had been so long. “He what?" She asked closing her eyes enjoying the way his teeth grazed her ear. He took his sweet time answering her. Of course, she didn’t really care because what he was doing to her ear lobe had her entire soul humming. “He likes to watch me tie a woman up and dominate her.” The image he was creating was a little too much for her to deal with, but it was there now and there was a good chance she would dream about it tonight. “R-really?” she asked. “Yeah, and then, we fuck her until she can’t walk.” She shivered again and tried to swallow. “Umm.” “Or...we drive her crazy by making her watch us. Zee really does like a cock up his ass.” Her brain was melting. And her body. That was melting too. Her panties were beyond damp and every sane thought she had evaporated. He tickled her lobe with his tongue. He smelled like sin and that is all she wanted to do. Sin. With him. And Zeke. “Do you think you would like that, love?” I picked up A Little Harmless Fantasy, the 8th book in the Harmless series by Melissa Schroeder, several months ago when it was on sale but just got around to reading it. This was a better than average MMF menage story, with a dash of BDSM (very lite) and a thread of suspense. The story basically starts with an indecent (but totally hot) offer for Maura to become a third in the established relationship between Rory and Zeke for a week, while they are all going to be in Hawaii together. What sounds like a tantalizing offer really has the potentially to become quite complex with the different dynamics between the three characters...is inviting Maura a mistake? What if a week isn't enough? The characters were well developed and the story was well written. There were a few words spelled incorrectly here and there (a letter left off, etc) but really very minor and easy to overlook. I liked all the characters and enjoyed the interaction between all three. I especially liked that Maura had two very different relationships with the main characters, Zeke and Rory. I have to admit, I have come to expect my menage books to be very steamy. I remember when just the idea of reading a menage book would have been shocking...boy have I crossed over to the other side =) While I wouldn't say it was blazing hot, it was a very steamy read! I thought all the descriptions and interactions between all characters were well done and tasteful. “God, you smell good. Just soap, I like that in a woman. I also like that you are such a fuck toy. You like that don’t you, Maura? You liked being fucked so hard you can’t walk.” “Yes, Sir.” There was no hesitation when she gave him the name this time. It was an intimacy he enjoyed before with subs, but this was different. He felt like he had been punched in the heart. “I am getting my cock up that ass of yours and you’re going to love it, aren’t you?” She shivered again and sighed. “Yes, Sir.” I didn't realize until I finished A Little Harmless Fantasy that it was part of a well established series. I was even more surprised to see that the author, Melissa Schroeder, was the same author that wrote the Santinis series. I read one of the Santinis books and even though I have the whole set on my kindle, I hadn't planned to read more. I didn't find the Santinis book to be a bad read, but for me it was just okay. I just mentioned that because this book is definitely more erotic then the book from the Santinis was. With so many books to choose from, I'm looking forward to checking out more in the Harmless series. I'm hoping I'll find another solid read. I love finding a series I really like that has as many books to choose from as this does.

Zeke and Rory both ooze sex appeal and brought me more happiness than my morning bowl of Lucky Charms and its leprechaun! They've both led dangerous lives which leads to a number of enemies wanting to harm them. Beneath their bad boy exteriors though lies two men who've been hurt in the past and thus saying those three little words is very difficult for them. Afters years of fear they finally had the courage to commit to each other but Rory can't help but notice Zeke's continuing attraction to Maura and suggests something radical that culminates in an unexpected way for all of them. Maura used to have it bad for Zeke until he broke things off in fear of her ending up unsatisfied due to his not being a Dom. Her attraction towards him never stopped even after she saw him and Rory become a couple and after being asked to join the two of them for a week of sexual play that she doesn't see becoming permanent jealousy, fear, and Fate intervene to make for an unconventional HEA. Many outside factors work against this coupling. First and foremost is her older brother Conner who treats her more like a daughter than a sister. He doesn't find her capable of making good decisions which has her constantly second guessing her feeling towards her men. There's also bits of jealousy that the men experience when they're out in public and fears of how society would deal with their triad. Maura also keeps personal secrets from them which make them question their importance to her and is just one more hiccup to their happiness. The biggest roadblock is when a criminal from Zeke and Rory's past comes out of nowhere to target Maura. This part of the story came out of nowhere and was resolved quickly but was a big catalyst to finally reaching a HEA. The bulk of the story though is all about sex. These recurring scenes almost overwhelmed the story to the point of leaving everything else by the wayside. There's various couplings in various places in varying intensities. After wiping my brow after yet another steamy encounter I must give kudos once again to Ms. Schroeder's ability to keep these scenes creative and intense on every level. This triad felt cohesive with no one ever being left out and it's clear that theirs is a true relationship. A Little Harmless Fantasy is another satisfying installment in the Harmless series. From its visually enticing scenery to two very sexy Irishmen who I wished would jump off the page into my home, this story kept me fully immersed and looking forward to the next book in this scorchingly written series.

    A Little Harmless Fantasy is the eighth book in the Harmless series. Although is part of an established series it can be read as a stand alone and as a series freak I am eager to read the previous books after reading this little gem of a story.

Although is part of an established series it can be read as a stand alone and as a series freak I am eager to read the previous books after reading this little gem of a story. Zeke and Rory have had an on and off relationship for years, but have recently made it permanent. However, while apart Zeke and Maura had a relationship that ended when Zeke could not give Maura what she needed - to be dominated. Rory finds Maura attractive and is aware that Zeke still looks at Maura with longing, so he devices a plan for both of them to get together with her so Zeke can get her out of his system and move on. He failed to take into account how Maura's submission would affect him and how he would feel about the situation after the week in Hawaii was done. I adored Zeke. From his strength to his loving ways, getting to know Zeke was a joy. He knew what he wanted, but he wasn't willing for hurt anyone in the process even if it was him who was suffering. He thought he had what he wanted, but he also felt that something was missing in his life - Maura. Having said that I have to admit that it was Rory who I loved. He was stubborn and dominant, but underneath all that armor he had a vulnerability that won my heart. He wanted, he needed and he denied. His confession when it came was as overdue as it was beautiful. He went into this to give Zeke closure, but in the end he wanted it forever. Maura was a good character to get to know although she had some personality traits that got under my skin. She was smart, strong and submissive with a challenging streak that made for some entertaining moments. I enjoyed how she submitted to Rory and how she loved Zeke unconditionally. I was pleased in the way the story flowed throughout the book. The characters were developed and their connection was fully explored. The emotions displayed by the characters were real and helped me connect to them fully. I also enjoyed the secondary characters and appreciated what they added to the story. Melissa Schroeder brings to the page an erotic story of unfulfilled desires and new beginnings where passion runs rampant and the price to pay for it is love. I would like to thank Melissa Schroeder and Brandy Walker for giving me the opportunity to read and review this title in exchange of my honest opinion.

I’m the first to admit that I absolutely love the Harmless Series by Melissa Schroeder, and the newest addition, A Little Harmless Fantasy, does not disappoint. From the first word I was drawn in, there was just something about Rory, Zeke and Maura that just worked. I love bisexual men, much like Maura does, and these two Irishmen are drool worthy. This is a MMF ménage, which means the men play with one another alone and with Maura and every scene was explosively hot. The three of them are believable as a trio, Zeke loves them both and Rory and Maura love Zeke and watching Rory and Maura fall in love was very enjoyable. Most of Ms. Schroeder’s Harmless books catch up with past characters and this one is no different. The relationship between Maura and her brother is portrayed in such a way that I wanted a protective older brother who loves me that much. No Harmless book is complete without a trip to the Hawaiian BDSM club known as Rough N Ready, and while there was no play at the club, it was great to catch up on old characters. The BDSM aspects of this book just add to the spicy sex scenes. There were times when I wanted to smack the characters and yell at them to talk to each other, but I see that as a plus to the story, since I cared enough to want to help them. The characters are strong, the story is well fleshed out and the descriptions make me want to book a trip to Hawaii immediately to visit all the places that are described. This is the eighth installment of the Harmlessseries, the first ménage in the series, and while I did enjoy catching up on the other characters, I would say that this book could be read as a stand alone. I do thoroughly recommend this whole series. Bisexual men and BDSM made this book a must read, so don’t hesitate to try this book.

    Ok, I have to start this off with a wow is it hot! You have two people hopelessly in love with one man who end up finding that maybe three is better than two. Mel gives us a strong heroine with a lot of issues to work through but at her core she is deeply in love with her ex-Zeke.

You have two people hopelessly in love with one man who end up finding that maybe three is better than two. Mel gives us a strong heroine with a lot of issues to work through but at her core she is deeply in love with her ex-Zeke. They love each other but Maura knows she needs to have a Dom to be completely happy and Zeke is just not that person. Love for one another makes them split up as they both know the fundamental need she has would not be fulfilled and neither would be happy as they kept hurting each other. Zeke has one of the loves of his life back in Rory but he knows something is missing. You can see the love the two men have for one another and watching Rory with Zeke was beautiful. Even though there is a lot of pain and angst in their past there is a huge amount of love between these two that shines through the hurt. Rory proposes a way to get Maura out of Zeke's system by having them spend the week in Hawaii together as a triad but ends up finding what it was that Zeke fell in love with. I loved seeing the three of them work through their issues and especially seeing Rory deal with realizing what he is capable of. This is a very hot read but a huge amount of heart, pain and love behind all the main players actions. This is a ménage a trois that will work long-term and fulfill each partners basic dreams and needs to an extent most people never find. I have to thank Melissa Schroeder and Brandy Walker for giving me the chance to read this in exchange for my honest review. You want this one… you truly do. All three partners have their private moments together and as a part of the triad which is a rare thing to see.

Maura is Conner's little sister, who we first met in A Little Harmless Fascination. She used to go out with Zeke, who is now with Rory. When the three of them go to Hawaii they decide to spend the week as a threesome, a threesome participating in BDSM. The sex scenes were hot! Rory and Zeke are both strong men, who also have an amazing way with the ladies. I really loved the three of them together. Rory had some childhood demons to get through before he can really be in "love", but I think Schroeder did a good job with it. I love that all of her character's have childhood issues to work out. It makes them seem more real. My favorite in this story was Zeke. He was just so sweet and lovable! As with all of Schroeder's female characters, Maura was strong and independent, who just happened to be submissive. Rory was the Dom in the threesome, and he really wanted to make sure everyone enjoyed themselves in the bedroom. All three of them play a part in their relationship, and that's why this threesome works so well together! I loved A Little Harmless Fantasy and can not wait for the next Harmless story! Schroeder wrote a prequel to Fantasy, called Prelude to a Fantasy, about Maura's and Zeke's first sexual encounter! Pick it up now for free!

She never imagined herself torn between two very sexy men. Zeke and Rory have been friends for years and have had an on and off relationship through those years. Rory had a near death experience epiphany that made him realize he loved and needed Zeke in his life forever. Their casual relationship lead them to living together. Once they meet Maura, their attraction to her started to spin out of control. Rory wants to act on their desires and suggests a week in Hawaii. With no rules and no limits. What starts out as simple fantasy among friends becomes an overwhelming need that none of them can deny. Can they take a fantasy and make it work for a lifetime? Maura, Zeke and Rory’s nights are filled with unimaginable erotic pleasure. This book is hot. A great book with lots of passion and naughtiness. The book has drama and some OMG moments. As they explore their passions in Hawaii there is someone lurking in the shadows. Someone who wants revenge and will stop at nothing to succeed. As I started this I found out that it is the eighth book in the Harmless Series. Although it is part of a series, I feel that it can be read as a standalone. After reading this book I now want to go back and start with book one. -Reviewed by Barbara

    Let me start by saying that I have been following Melissa Schroeder for years. I have read every book she has written. I have been waiting sometimes impatiently for a new Harmless book because this is one of my all-time favorite series. I am happy that she has written another MMF book. This is not your ordinary MMF book because both of the men are real men. There is nothing feminine about Zeke or Rory. I read a lot of MM and MMF books, and this one stands out for me.

I have been waiting sometimes impatiently for a new Harmless book because this is one of my all-time favorite series. I am happy that she has written another MMF book. This is not your ordinary MMF book because both of the men are real men. There is nothing feminine about Zeke or Rory. I read a lot of MM and MMF books, and this one stands out for me. The characters are both strong and yet when they are with Maura, they are men in love. Maura brings out the soft side of both men and yet, she is no pushover when they get dominant outside the bedroom. She knows what she wants, and she wants both men. As always, several of my favorite characters make an appearance. I love being able to catch up on what has been happening in Hawaii since the last time we visited. The story is once again something that draws you in from the first word and has you hooked till the end. There is always just the right amount of conflict to show the characters the path to true love and that it is worth fighting for. If you are looking for a book that is going to engross you from the first page to the last page, this is the book for you. .

But when you are Maura Dillon and you have 2 ALPHA males loving you, you can't ask for more... Maura couldn't understand what happened to her relationship with Zeke.

They had more passion that most, but things ended. She couldn't understand why... But then she saw Zeke with Rory. The attraction and affection that the two men shared for each other gave Maura the idea that she couldn't compete with that. But little did she know... The attraction Zeke & Rory had for each other was also for her as well! Now Maura had to deal with two men who had a lot of love to give... Waiting to give it to her! They didn't know if it would work, but they were willing to try it out and Maura secretly wanted to know what all that love felt like! ALH Fantasy has all the STEAMINESS that you can handle. You have 3 people trying to balance work & pleasure... And when danger arises, you have two Alpha males trying to protect what matters most to them... Maura! This is definitely a well played threesome...

    I am a huge fan of the Harmless series and I'm pleased that ALH Fantasy had a lot of the elements that you would expect from this sexy series. Although it was focusing on Maura, Zeke and Rory's story in Miami, they do go over to Hawaii to see Maura's brother, Conner. Of course this means that some of the favourite characters get involved as Maura is a newly formed submissive and although has the hots for big Dom Rory and his lover Zeke, there is no way she could miss up an opportunity to visit Ro I am a huge fan of the Harmless series and I'm pleased that ALH Fantasy had a lot of the elements that you would expect from this sexy series.

Of course this means that some of the favourite characters get involved as Maura is a newly formed submissive and although has the hots for big Dom Rory and his lover Zeke, there is no way she could miss up an opportunity to visit Rough n' Ready. Even if it is just to catch up with some of the girls and not to play. This is a super hot and sexy ménage a trois story that is about rekindling love, over coming fears of love and admitting that some people you just can't live without. Ms. Schroeder easily brings characters to life and makes Hawaii feel like home as she brings old characters into the mix and of course that means the banter and free loving spirit of the Harmless series. This is a book that was enjoyable and fun to read and at times unputdownable. It's great to see eight books in, this series is still hot and sexy and each new character fits into the Harmless mould.

    As posted on The Smutty Kitty 4 out of 5 Licks I am a huge fan of the Harmless series and I am always excited when a new release date rolls around. I really enjoyed this book. One of my favorite things about this series is that we get to see characters from the previous books in the series.

I absolutely love Irish men and they are even better when they start touching each other. ;) When they bring Maura into the fun it just gets better from there. The sex scenes were plentiful and hot. I was reading an ARC and noticed a time or two where there were continuity issues but it didn't distract too much from the overall story and it is quite possible they have been corrected in the final version. This is definitely a nice addition to the Harmless series and I can't wait to read more in the future.

    Let us all admit it...we have fantasied about a three-some once in our life. However, it may not be the way Maura Dillon did. If you are familiar with the "A Little Harmless" series (if you are not, start reading them NOW), the series has followed the lives of Maura Dillon, a security tech specialist and her relationship with individuals she has met in Hawaii. She is in Miami running the security company owned by her brother Connor and his best friend Zeke.

She is in Miami running the security company owned by her brother Connor and his best friend Zeke. Also working in Miami, is Zeke's lover Rory, who met in their youth in Ireland. Working that closely together, can get a girl's imagination going, adding to that is that Maura and Zeke had a brief relationship and she finds bi-sexual males hot!!! I don't want to give away too much about the book, however, if you enjoy hot men, sexy woman and a little adventure, this is the book for you.

    A very sexy, steamy love story with Zeke, Maura, and Rory. There was a bit of suspense, a little action, and some additional angsty moments. I kept waiting for someone to listen to Maura and believe her, but I was sorely disappointed. Her situation helped to explain why she struggled with the way she was treated. I liked how Maura and Rory worked around to changing their minds about each other. It was also nice to revisit some of the characters from earlier books. It made me want to re-read them.
