My Review:

Aw, I really liked both of these characters. There's no denial here. They know they love each other. All their friends know they love each other. You, as the reader, know they love each other. What's in doubt is whether they can live Happily Ever After together. They tried it once and it failed spectacularly and the divorce broke both their hearts. As a result, I found this story to be incredibly sweet and sexy. They have chemisty. They have love. Now all they need is to find the faith

Being an Army brat myself I can really relate but everyone can relate to loving someone so much but not taking their bossiness either, such os the story of Samantha and Deke. Deke is in the the service and even though Samantha was an Army brat the loneliness was too much so she would fight when he had to leave and he was too stubborn to see her side,but the love they have for each other is and strong if not stronger then ever after ten years and a divorce. Now that Deke is out of active life he ...more

Fight to win

Sam and Deke were great. It took them awhile to figure out they needed to talk more. I was glad they realized they both had stuff to work on. Also glad they had a good support system.
I wish I had a Fiona in my circle.

Are there benefits in second chances or is it actually just an opportunity to see just see how fortunate you are to have dodged that proverbial bullet? In Possession: A Little Harmless Military Romance Samantha Berg has spent the past ten years asking herself that same question, continuously using a mantra to convince herself to stay away from her ex-husband Deke with little to no success. While Deke and Sam may have allowed geography and the U.S. Military to separate them, when fate manages to ...more

KcLu's review posted on Guilty Pleasures

Possession: A Little Harmless Military Romance Book 2 is my first book by Melissa Schroeder, and yet again thanks to Guilty Pleasures I have found a new author to devour. This is a wonderfully written novella. My biggest pet peeve is when a novella is rushed because of its length and Possession, is did not feel rushed.

This book is a wonderful quick and steamy read!!

Falling in love at a young age, Deke was a Navy Seal with on a Mission who wasn't prepared for the life that Sam and he were destined for. And Sam had so many feeling on failed marriages, that she never gave her own a chance. The heat that arises between the two at Kade & Shannon's wedding is nothing new, but it starts t ...more

Deke Berg has only been in love once and that was with his wife. Too bad they ended up divorced. Deke is a committed military man and unfortunately his wife couldn’t handle the never there lifestyle and when he was there they fought more than made up. Deke would give anything to feel that kind of love again. Now that he’s leaving active duty for a desk job he sure would like to have his wife beside him. How fortunate for him that he spot’s her at a Hawaiian wedding.

What’s hotter than a Navy SEAL? I think it’s a Navy SEAL in love.

Deacon Berg has been in love with his ex-wife, Samantha, since they met ten years ago. That’s never been in question. But, he knows that when they were married they couldn’t stop fighting with each other. They are older now, and when Deacon sees her at his friend’s wedding in Hawaii, he’s sure that they are now meant to be with each other. Convincing Samantha of that is not going to be as easy.

Oh, I loved this one! POSSESSION was s

There is nothing “Harmless” about this Military short by Melissa Schroeder. It contains a little BDSM, a lot of HOT sex and emotional highs and lows by both Deacon and Samantha.

They were married, but she couldn’t deal with his being gone, so when she told him to leave, he did. They both still love each other and every time they see each other, they can’t resist getting together. He hears her voice, he gets a “hard on”, she sees him in uniform and knows they’ll wind up in bed. They haven’t seen e

Everybody knows a couple that can’t stay broken up. They love each other but can’t seem to make it work. Deke and Samantha are that couple. They were married but found that while explosive passion in the bedroom is a great thing passionate explosions outside the bedroom - not so good. Older and a little wiser they meet again when Deke attends a wedding in Hawaii. Deke is a Navy Seal and being married to a military man isn’t easy (I know that from personal experience). Sam is a military brat who ...more

It seems like love isn’t done with Deacon Berg and Samantha Walters. After once being married, Deke and Sam’s hearts find their way to each other once again. As Deke attends a wedding in Hawaii, these two past lovers meet and their chemistry erupts and sparks fly!

POSSESSION was a very quick read that held a lot of heat and just the right amount of angst. After some great love scenes, Schroeder delves a little deeper and puts her characters in a situation that will test

This was in one of my goodie bags at a conference, so I gave the new-to-me author a whirl. The writing was good, so the pages turned quickly.

I admit, though, I was overwhelmed by the sheer number of characters in such a slim volume. Yes, I realize it was a Book 2, and I hadn't read Book 1, but it felt like someone new was introduced in every chapter. There were just too many characters floating around, and I got very frustrated trying to remember everyone.

Another great addition to this series. Imagine you married the perfect person, but neither of you was really mature in the beginning. You divorce, but keep bumping into each other for ten years. TEN YEARS!! And every bump causes massive fireworks. But one of the participants has been through something horrible (we still don't really know what), and he's willing to work harder for what he knows could be perfect.

This was a great story about reunited love. I liked that Deke didn't give up Samantha

This was a great read.

Quick, scorching, addictive.

Deke was a hottie. I'm a sucker for military men. The uniform, the muscles, the structure and discipline. Yummo. But Deke also had a big heart and it only beat for Samantha.

It was a rekindled love story and I could feel the connection and the emotional turmoil the entire way through it. And did I mention the sexiness? It was vera nice.

I felt like I was a part of the story with the great way it was written and I devoured it in a few hours.

Deke and Sam have played round and round for years, they married young and can't stay away from each other. This isn't their second chance, this is the umpth'd time they come together

But this time is different, because Deke is different this time, he has had enough of the merry-go-round and when he meets up with Sam this time, he recognizes it as soon as it happens

There are lots of things that make this story push forward, but Deke stays steady through it all, and that is what makes the story an

Melissa Schroeder’s Military books are a spin off of her A Little Harmless series, but focusing on Military heroes and the women who love them. This is beautifully done in this novella with the relationship between Navy Seal Deacon Berg and school teacher Samantha Walters. They’ve loved each other for ten years and won’t let a failed marriage keep them apart when they realize they can’t live without each other.

I was interested in Deke's story when I read the first book in the series. Possession felt more like a contemporary romance, than an erotic romance. After reading book 1, Infatuation, which had some smoking hot sex scenes, I was expecting Possession to be sizzling! The sex scenes were okay but not as hot as I thought it would be. And something was missing from Deke's character that made me like him in the first book. I can't quite put my finger on it. I found myself more interested in the suppor ...more

This book was supposed to be about a divorced couple dealing with the issues that lead to their divorce. Instead they just had sex, said sorry never really discussed how they were going to change and made up.

When a huge issue in their marriage comes up, the heroine is made to feel like she is being overly emotional. Even though she is not and her feelings where completely justified. But nope, he didn't hit you so he's perfect!

I love Melissa Schroeder. She's my go to author when I need new 'steamy' fix. This was a little milder than some of her stuff - which does NOT mean there aren't some great scenes. But this was a sweet story with lots of romance ribboned through it. I love her new Military series.

Now I have to decide what to read next from her collection (considering I've read about half of what she has written or more) :-D Thumbs up!

I love "harmless"-books but I was really dissapointed by how short this was, and the plot was thin. The story seemed to focus more on the story to come about Malachai Dupree. So only three stars from me this time I'm sad to say. I really do love harmless but it wasn't doing it for me.
Oh one thing, liked the twist at the end, maybe predictable but fitting :-)
