Overview

This is a 83,000 word novel.

What starts out as simple fantasy among friends, becomes an overwhelming need that none of them can deny.

Maura Dillon has always been someone who lived life on her own terms. From the time she in college she knew she had different needs than most of her friends. But she never thought she would find herself torn between two very sexy men, or that they would want to add her to their relationship.

Zeke and Rory have known each other for years. Their casual relationship has spanned a decade, but now that they are living together things are on a whole other level. Add in their mutual attraction for Maura and things are just getting out of hand.

Rory understands their desires and suggests a week in Hawaii. No rules, no limits, no regrets. But as their nights are filled with unimaginable erotic pleasure, there is someone lurking in the shadows. Someone who wants revenge, and will stop at nothing to succeed.

Warning the book contains the following: Two sexy men who are hot for each other and the heroine, more Hawaiian scenery, a Dom who thinks he can control everything, two lovers who know he can't, and scenes that push even Harmless Addicts over the edge.

Meet the Author

From an early age, Melissa loved to read. First, it was the books her mother read to her including her two favorites, Winnie the Pooh and the Beatrix Potter books. She cut her preteen teeth on Trixie Belden and read and reviewed To Kill a Mockingbird in middle school. It wasn’t until she was in college that she tried to write her first stories, which were full of angst and pain, and really not that fun to read or write. After trying several different genres, she found romance in a Linda Howard book.
Since the publication of her first book in 2004, Melissa has had close to fifty romances published. She writes in genres from historical suspense to modern day erotic romance to futuristics and paranormals. Included in those releases is the bestselling Harmless series. In 2011, Melissa branched out into self-publishing with A Little Harmless Submission and the popular military spinoff, Infatuation: A Little Harmless Military Romance. Along the way she has garnered an epic nomination, a multitude of reviewer’s recommended reads, over five Capa nods from TRS, over twelve nominations for AAD Bookies and regularly tops the bestseller lists on Amazon, All Romance Ebooks and Barnes & Noble.
Since she spent her childhood as a military brat, Melissa swore never to marry military. But, as we all know, Fate has her way with mortals. She is married to an AF major and is raising her own brats, both human and canine. She spends her days giving in to her addiction to Twitter, counting down the days until her hubby retires, and cursing the military for always sticking them in a location that is filled with bugs big enough to eat her children.

    I think this may be the very best thing I've read by this author

    I think this may be the very best thing I've read by this author.  Erotic romance – m/m/f  I 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

    Hot, but poorly written

    I liked the other books in this series, but was disappointed with this one.

    The editing step seems to have been skipped. It is often difficult to tell which character is speaking. In some scenes, continuity is lacking. For example, one of the characters notes that Maura has smudges under her eyes while her head is down on the table at the police station.

    In spite of all of its flaws, this book is still worth reading.

Now here is where the fun starts Zeke and Rory are lovers who also like women. They want Maura to join them for a no holes bared week while they are in Hawaii. But is a week enough? Oh did I mention that Rory is a Dom and Maura is a Sub, Zeke likes to watch.

    Read this a buy the other 7

    This is the 8th in a series. I never read the rest of the series and while I wasn't lost, I think reading the other seven would make up for the some of the lack of certain aspects of character development. The hot scenes were very hot and give this book a full 2 stars of the review. The story was good and it moved fast, but not too fast.

    Story is fine; desperately needs editing

    This book doesn't really offer anything new in the Harmless series, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. It's hot, unless you don't want to read about a relationship between bisexual men. However, I do usually expect Schroeder's books to be well written and better edited. This one seems to need at least two more drafts before anyone should be paying for it.

    Numerous Steamy Encounters & 2 Sexy Heroes Make For a Great Read...

    In the latest installment in the Harmless series I'm left with the impression that the only thing more satisfyingly sexy than one Irishman is two Irishmen. 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.

    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. We also usually have met at least one or possibly two of the new main characters in the previous books so we already have a bit of background on them so it makes it that much easier to connect with the characters. 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 me start by saying that I have been following Melissa Schroe

    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. 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.

    I was looking forward to read this book, especially after reading "Prelude to a Fantasy" a short story which is giving a little background on how the main characters in this full-length novel meet.

    I inhaled this book, it was that good. A story of three people who come to terms with their feelings for each other, despite the obstacles they are faced with. It is a MMF relationship and the sex scenes are hot and steamy, I give it 5/5 flames.

    It has action, it has drama, it has suspense and it has love! If you are not a Harmless Addict, you will be after this one.

    I recommend all books from this author!
