Falling for her might be easy, seducing her may be damned hard, but keeping her alive might just be deadly.
Harmless, Book 4
Coming from nothing, Micah Ross now has more than he knows what to do with. His Hawaii BDSM club is flourishing, and he has his pick of women. Except one. Dee Sumners is cute, sexy, feisty…and, since she’s on his payroll, off-limits. Plus, she insists she isn’t into the life. Until one heated kiss hints that his head bartender secretly hungers to be his sub.
Life on the run doesn’t allow Dee to indulge in long-term relationships. Still, Micah manages to work his way through her tough armor and under her skin. Yet even as she succumbs to his skilled seduction, her survival instinct forms a plan to leave the island she has grown to love—and the man she’s in danger of loving.
When Dee disappears, Micah’s anger turns to fear when he realizes she didn’t leave willingly. Calling on his skills as a former bounty hunter, he tracks her to the mainland only to discover she is entangled in a web of lies and deceit that not only threatens their love, but her life.
Ever since she was a teen, Dee has been on the run and hiding from her father and his cohorts. After years of this she has found a reason to stop and his name is Micah. Yet life has a funny way of taking things full circle. As Dee is working out her feelings for Micah she is found by not only her brother but also an ex-agent who was on her case those many years ago. Only Dee can decide if she is done hiding or if she will continue to run.
This book was full of wonderful characters. I truly enjoyed Dee and her assertiveness and ability to take care of herself. Micah is a wonderful man as well as a good Dom. He cares deeply for those that he considers friends. The two are a great couple. Dee does and will always push Micah, just as he will push her boundaries. The two go through an emotional roller coaster ride in this book.
This story starts with a bang and keeps you riveted all the way to the end. I never lost interest and in the end it had a few surprise twists that I did not see coming. I enjoyed reading Micah’s story and visiting with May and Evan once again. Watching Micah and Dee figure out their feelings for each other was a wonderful read. Melissa Schroeder writes an intriguing story full of great characters. I love coming to the club and cannot wait to see who will be next to have their story told.
