For a tough as nails Dom hunting a sadistic serial killer is nothing compared to losing his heart.
Rome Carino is hunting a predator. One who likes to hurt submissives and the most popular BDSM club’s patrons are being targeted. With each fresh kill, he gets more brazen. Rome knows he just needs one little break, but before he can make headway, the FBI shows up. Worse, the uptight, buttoned-down Special Agent Maria Callahan suggests a plan that is dangerous, but worth it because it might just catch the killer. If Rome can keep his mind on the case and off the beautiful FBI agent, he'll be just fine.
Maria is still trying to step out of her legendary father's shadow and knows just how to do it. Luring the killer by posing as Rome's new sub seems like a good idea. That is, until undercover becomes real life and she finds herself tangled up with a man who amazes and scares her at the same time. Her growing attraction to the Honolulu Police Detective is a little too much to handle. Even knowing that, she can't help falling in love with the tough Dom and losing herself in the games they play in the bedroom.
Rome is overwhelmed by his need for Maria. He has never had a sub respond to him the way she does and no matter what he does, he feels himself slipping off that cliff into love. As their relationship starts to unfold, he realizes that he will do anything to win her heart, to convince her to become his sub for a lifetime. But before he can do anything, the killer turns his attention on Rome and the one thing he holds dear: Maria.
WARNING: The following book contains: A Dom who thinks he can do no wrong, a new sub who is about to teach him he can, palm trees, a trip or two to Rough ‘n Ready, a flirty Aussie Dom with questionable motives, old friends, and a new enemy. Yeah, it might be called Harmless, but you Addicts know it’s anything but.
This is number six in the Harmless series and it just keeps getting better. Not many authors can keep a series going and keep it fresh but I can say that I have found one who knows how to satisfy me as well as having me eager for the next story. In this book we get Rome and Maria’s story. They must team together to find a serial killer. Maria has worked her way up in the FBI and sees this case as a way to prove that she earned her spot not got it because of whom her father was. Rome is determined to find the killer and is more than willing to work with Maria.
I love that this story has a strong woman who can stand up for herself. Maria is great, she can be the strongest woman or even man on the job but alone and with Rome she begins to find herself in the bedroom. Rome is a wonderful man and I love the way he looses his control with Maria. The fireworks start right from the beginning between these two and watching them turn into something more was a great read. The two burn up the pages as their relationship blooms.
The author does a wonderful job of intertwining the romance with the undercover operation that the Rome and Maria are doing. I was glued to my seat and couldn’t stop turning the pages. You never loose interest in either part of the story and neither one takes over the book. We also get to see characters from past books. I just loved May and Dee. Their interactions with Maria were great especially when they helped her find clothes for her first night at the club.
A Little Harmless submission is a great addition to the Harmless series as well as my library and I cannot wait to see what happens in the next book.
