I really enjoyed this book! It was fun and sexy, however it also had a good story line, along with some smokin chemistry between the two main characters; Max and Anna.

Max and Anna are best friends... everyone thinks they are perfect for each other, except themselves. Anna secretly thinks Max is hot, and Max has always had the hots for Anna, but they are always seeing other people. All that changes when they both break up with their significant others at the same time. When they decided to cons...more

I have mixed feels about this one. It started out really good for me. Anna the free spirited small business owner is someone I admire. The fact that she doesn't have serious relationships totally makes sense. Given her past experience with Freddy the F-head, I can understand. Max is pretty hot. His drive and all together control is something I like too. The fact that they are best friends who fall for each other, very sweet and up my alley. The first third of the book was dead on for me. From th...more

Another solid romantica/erotica novel (although rather short) from Shiloh Walker, "A Little Harmless Sex" is a story about two best friends who become lovers.

Max knows everything about Anna. They've been friends since she broke his nose at age six. Although he's had a few hot fantasies about her, he feels uncomfortable lusting after someone he thinks he should see as a little sister. When his fiance dumps him and he only feels relief, he and Anna get together for a night of commiseration.

So much wrong with this book I don't even know where to start. If you took a shot every time the author used the word "turgid" (not sexy ever), you'd be drunk before the first third of the book was over. Breasts don't swell up unless lactation is involved. So much anatomy fail I wondered if the author had ever had sex before she wrote this. The main characters were supposedly high powered business owners, but they acted like spoiled children. Then there were the words that do not mean what the a...more

As a fledgling romantica reader I'm thinking I'm going to have to wade through a bit of mediocre smut in order to find the good stuff.

This book is more the former than the latter.

The story here is one of long-time friends finally acting on feelings that have been there for years. Normally I love this trope and there was potential here for this to be a really good read. Unfortunately, I didn't feel like the author had the chops to carry it off. Some of the characters and their purpose in the boo...more

A Lot of Hot Sex! Well written, fast read about best friends becoming lovers. Great book for $0!! Now that I've gotten sucked in, I'm going to continue the series.

Posted on http://realitybites-letsgetlost.blogs...

Wow! This book will get your motor running. The bedroom scenes are very hot and inviting as you could say! HA!

Max and Anna are best friends and have been for many years. Max is very straight laced. He likes everything in order. Anna is very outgoing and adventurous. She is a free spirit and the complete opposite of Max.

They have gone through lots of boyfriends and girlfriends, but never wi...more

This was a short sweet & very sexy read. U get alot of story for such a short amount of pages. Which is good. U get a feel for the types of people Max and Anna are and how their long standing friendship and personal beliefs & fears would make them getting together not only believable, but would have u rooting for it happen. If you are looking for a quick heartfelt, sexy read then I would recommend this one.

This was a surprisingly good read. I thought Max and Anna were genuine, likable characters. Their affection for each other and the obstacles they faced were very believable. The sex was pretty steamy and I was rooting for them to get their HEA. I'm looking forward to reading the next in the series.

Ok you finally have sex with a hottie who happens to be your best friend and you have been lusting after since forever and he tells you:
“I should have known you’d be shaved.”

What the hell you had imagined it would be like???The Amazon??...

That's the 2 stars for.





Sir
I like the way Melissa writes, but there isn't a lot to this story. It's a nice romantic tale of love and sex, but there isn't anything that really makes it stand out.
Jenn
This was a great little contemporary with lots of hot sex. it started off with a bang and just kept delivering. The characters were believable and endearing, Max stuck to his guns and to his heart where Anna was concerned, allowing her to work through issues but not run away from them. He was a strong hero with good values when it came to women and business and that truly made him a believable and worthy hero for this romance.

Anna also stuck to her character, she didn't waffle and get all wishy...more

What can I say but thank goodness for Amazon Kindle free reads that allow me the genuine pleasure of finding a fast, fun, sexy book to devour in a day's reading!

I love the premise of two people who have been friends since very early childhood, been confidantes since early adulthood and at a certain point in their lives discover that those feeling have become something so much deeper and richer than mere friendship for one another!

Anna is a very liberated forthright 28 year old woman living in a...more

Max and Anna have been friends their whole lives and each have been harboring a crush on the other since a harmless little kiss while Anna was still in high school. However, their whole relationship changes after they have a little too much to drink while commiserating over their recent break ups.

Okay...the title lies. There is no way you can describe the amount of sex in this book as "little". *snort* From the book description I expected a one night encounter to take them on a journey of connecting.

Well they had their one night...and then banged like bunnies for most of the book. I'd say we got 50% plot and 50% smex. I enjoyed it, and the sexy scenes were really hot. The author still did a couple of fade to black scenes. Damn these two had a lot of sexual frustration to work out.

How was the Sexy? The sexy sizzled! It was HOT HOT HOT. It did not feel cheap or forced. In fact it held all those qualities that made it sweet and sweaty at the same exact time. The chemistry between Anna and Max was off the charts and kept you wanting them to get together more.

How was the Story? The story is what I really loved about this book. It was a full-fledged love story of the best kind! They were two people made for each other and I liked that the guy is the one who figured it out firs...more

Soooooo good!!! I would have given 4.5 stars if I could have. It was very sensual and sexy.

Maxwell is a slightly uptight business man who just got dumped by his fiancé. He celebrates his freedom by going to his best friend, Anna's house. She is freespirited and a little bit promiscuous. After a dinner of mexican food and margaritas, they unleash the passion they've always had for each other. Max decides he wants her for keeps and has to convince her they are meant to be. The plan mostly works u...more

I felt like a little more time spent with the characters outside of the bedroom (or office, kitchen, living room - wherever they were having sex) would have allowed me to relate to them a bit more.

There were parts of the story that didn't just flow, it felt like it was inorganic to the characters, and I would have liked to seen more so I could connect with them.

There were a couple of times I wanted to smack the characters upside the head for their assumptions, but I was pleased that they fairly...more
Amanda
This book was fine. There wasn't much to the story and the characters, Max's ex-fiance specifically, were written extremely unevenly. The finance never read like a real person to me. Her entire personality seemed driven by her being the device that moved the plot forward. When the plot needed conflict she was suddenly a fairly aggressive character, but when things needed to be resolved the author suddenly would make this character extremely passive to resolve the conflict quickly. Her personalit...more

About 2/3 of the way through this book I realized I didn't care anything for these characters. I read a Harmless Obsession several months back and really liked it, but this one just couldn't keep my attention. There just didn't seem to be much passion and emotion with these characters.
SassySami
This is a story of best friends who get drunk and slide around between the sheets, something they've both wanted to do for ten years. Max wants more, but knows that telling Anna will scare her off, so he sets out to woo her. There's lots of hot sex and Max and Anna are a great couple.
Christina
VERY hot, but I wish we could've gotten to enjoy their HEA a little while. It happened, and then....that was it. No savoring the moment, it just ended. I do wish their was more dialogue, too. But, that's just my personal need...I'm a dialogue junkie.

This was a quick read. The characters were likeable (Max moreso than Anna), but I wish they had been fleshed out more. I wanted to know more about their background and such. Will delve into book 2 to see about Chris. :)

I really liked this book. Being as how it's the first in a series, I'm happy to know I have more to look forward to!

This was a kindle freebie. Very well written you fall in love with Max and Anna.

The first time i read this story i really enjoyed it; mainly because i really connected with the heroine and i really liked the hero. A second read though, made me feel different about the heroine and even the hero at the end.

While i can still understand why the characters felt the need to not express their feelings, or were afraid to open themselves up to a relationship. This time i found them to be emotionally weak, instead of sympathizing with them. Maybe it's because i have grown as a perso...more
