She has no idea what she’s doing. Loose cannons never hit their targets.
And they take out plenty of collateral damage.
Four years ago Lindsay experienced the unspeakable right before me, and I couldn’t stop them.
But that’s all changed now.
When her father, Senator Bosworth, contacted me to ask — demand — that I protect her, it was a second chance. A shot at redemption.
An opportunity to right an unspeakable wrong.
Controlling Lindsay as she seeks her revenge on the monsters who hurt her won’t be hard.
Containing my own out-of-control feelings for Lindsay and keeping up this ruse of cold-blooded distance will be.
Even harder than admitting to her what really happened that night four years ago.
It turns out I don’t have to, though.
Someone else did it for me.
And I’ll make sure they regret it.
A HARMLESS LITTLE RUSE continues on from A HARMLESS LITTLE GAME, however in this part of the trilogy we are seeing the story from Drew’s POV. Again, this review will be kind of vague because I can’t say anything without giving away spoilers.
At the end of book 1, Drew and Lindsay rekindled their relationship and appeared to be on the same page. But in the beginning of this book, Lindsay does something that has him questioning her feelings and intentions. While she spent most of the first book questioning whether she could trust him, now it’s his turn to question whether he can trust her. They spend this book trying to heal old wounds while Drew works on his revenge plans against those who hurt them, but they always seem to be one step ahead of him, as proven by the cliffhanger we are left with. I’m still not a fan of her parents, who seem to care more about the election than their only child, and I still don’t know who is friend or foe.
We learn more about what happened that night four years ago, and I honestly didn’t think I could hate those three monsters more, but I was wrong. Despite the new information, all the questions I had from the first book remain unanswered, and I truly hope they will be answered in the next book. This was another quick read that easily held my attention.
Please Note: This book contains scenes that may be triggers for some people.
