A Harmless Little Plan (Harmless # 3)

By Meli Raine


Turns out there was a second video from that awful night four years ago. Mine wasn’t the only tape.

Too bad mine wasn’t the worst.

Drew can’t protect me no matter how hard he tries, but the roles are flipped now. I have to help him, but I’m not wired that way. Not anymore. That one night changed me more than anyone knows.

More than anyone could predict.

Three men think they’re above the law. They’re right.

But I’m willing to go beneath the law to make sure they never harm anyone else. Their threats don’t scare me. 

When you have nothing left to lose because someone took it all away, you create the most dangerous creature imaginable.


Game over.


After loving and quickly devouring the first two books in the Harmless trilogy, I’m sad to say that I found A HARMLESS LITTLE PLAN to be a little disappointing.  Why?  Because despite the happy-for-now ending, I felt there was no real closure in this story.  There are a lot of loose threads and unanswered questions, and I am not a fan of either of those things.

After finding out in the first book that Lindsay’s three friends lied to the police and media about her rape, we never heard about them again or found out why they turned against her.  What did they get out of it?  We never found out why Drew’s friends turned against him either.  Yes, they got money and fame, but what they did to Lindsay and Drew was so hateful and violent that there had to be more to it than just getting paid.  We do find out that people within the NSA, CIA and FBI all have their fingers in this scandalous pie, but we never heard about them being arrested.  Then I have to wonder, if the man pulling the strings was so well connected, why did he feel so threatened and why did he need to have Lindsay raped in the first place?  But then I guess if there’s no rape, there’s no story.  It was also mentioned that this same man may have been involved in the killing of Drew’s parents, and that someone high up (we don’t know where) targeted Drew because they think he’s a threat.  Both of these claims were never investigated and we didn’t find out if these claims were true.  These are just a handful of questions I was left with at the end of this book.  Will they be answered in another book or series, or will we be left hanging?

The first 50% of the book is where all the excitement lies.  After that, the book slows down a lot as we watch Lindsay and Drew heal from their ordeal.  I liked both Drew and Lindsay and was very glad to see them get their revenge and happy ending.  I was hoping to find just one redeeming quality in Lindsay’s mother, but by the end of this book I hated her as much as I did in the beginning of the series.  Throughout the series, I’ve alternated between liking and hating her father, and in the end I found him gutless.  He does love his daughter, but I think he loves his career more and will put it before her.

A HARMLESS LITTLE PLAN is told in dual POVs and is the final book in the Harmless trilogy, which cannot be read as stand-alones.  There is no epilogue, but it comes with a HFN ending.  Honestly, if all the loose threads had been taken care of, if nothing was left unresolved, this would have been a 5❤️ read for sure.

Please Note:  This book contains scenes that may be triggers for some people.
