Erotic romance – m/m/f
Disclaimer – I am a Melissa Schroeder fan girl and when offered the opportunity to review an ARC of A Little Harmless Fantasy I squeed and said yes please. That being said I tried to step back and write a fair and honest review.

I think this may be the very best thing I've read by this author. When I received the ARC I was in the middle of reading another book. I was good, I finished it and wrote my review, cooked and ate dinner and then sat down and read this book in one

I have been waiting for this one since Maura and Zeke first turned up in the series and was more intrigued by them when in the last book we were introduced to Rory and his place in Zeke's life.

When the trio first got to Hawaii I loved how they were, their chemistry was off the charts and each of their kinks played into the others, so that was a bonus. I really liked that Zeke and Maura knew they loved each other, that Rory and Zeke loved each other, the only wild card was going to be how Maura

Ha Cha-cha. Give me a fan and let me cool down. This book was just plain hot. This was my first Melissa Schroeder read and let me tell you it will not be my last.
You would think that being ordered by your boss and brother to spend a week or so in Hawaii with your super-hot, dark skin, Irish coworkers, would be the shit. Well Maura Dillon has a slight issue with that. Maura has had more than one fantasy about her coworkers, Zeke (Maura's ex and hot guy number one) and Rory (hot guy number two

OMG.......emotional roller coaster anyone? The Harmless world just gets better and better! This is my new favorite Harmless story...sorry Evan....I loved the intensity and getting to visit with some Harmless favorites!!

Menage is a favorite fantasy and having a strong woman find her fantasy is the ultimate! Maura is my favorite Harmless female and she is brilliant, tough and strong! Nothing better!!

Unfortunately this was my least favorite read this year. Not only does it have major editing errors, but the story is choppy, annoying, and the characters make me want to strangle them. The story didn't feel well developed making it difficult to read. Suffice to say, I had many issues with this book and it was nearly a DNF.

Awesome menage story with suspense and BDSM dominance/spanking. I finally got this story to the top of my TBR pile when I signed up for Melissa's ARC reading group. She's re-issuing these stories now that he has the rights back and the newest ones, Ride & Secret, are being expanded.

Maura Dillon is the computer expert for her brother's security company. She is incredibly intelligent and went to college as a young teen. That causes personal and relationship issues, she's always known she was

If you don't enjoy M/M/F romances, don't read! The book is as HAWT as the cover portrays!
Loving a man who can't fully love you will be a problem for many women... But when you are Maura Dillon and you have 2 ALPHA males loving you, you can't ask for more...

Maura couldn't understand what happened to her relationship with Zeke. They had more passion that most, but things ended. She couldn't understand why... But then she saw Zeke with Rory. The attraction and affection that

Holy hotness! This book about made my Kindle burst into flames! All of the Harmless books are very steamy to be sure, but this one - a menage - takes the steam to a whole different level! Maura's had a crush on Zeke for a while, and their one night together did nothing to get him out of her system. But she knows he can't be the Dom that she really needs. Zeke has a bigger problem - he loves Maura, but he also loves his boyfriend, Rory, with whom he's been involved for a decade. Their solution? ...more

I have read all of the ALH series and absolutely love it. This is no might actually be one of my favorites...the more the merrier...haha. I'm not big on putting spoilers into my reviews, so you won't get too many details here, just a heads up. I absolutely love Maya, she has to be one of the most kick ass heroines. I love a heroine who is a little nerdy and super creepy smart. I have wanted her book since Conner's book, so am glad to have read this. As for her love interests, you ...more

You don’t want to miss this steamy love story about three people who start with just a week of fun, but find so much more. To complicate their budding D/s relationship, Maura has to deal with an attack from a stalker, a fight for survival, and heartache when she believes the men she loves do not love her enough. It’s quite a bumpy ride with twists and turns and plenty of HOT passion.

This is an intriguing romance with strong, interesting characters, and fast paced action. Once you begin this

Maura and Zeke love each other but they couldn’t give each other what they needed so they ended their relationship. Although she misses him this was meant to be as he has reunited with his ex-boyfriend Rory.

When Rory realized what happened between Maura and Zeke he decides that the trip to Hawaii is the perfect time to explore a relationship between the three of them. What was supposed to be a holiday fling escalates into much more when the sparks between them ignite but will they be able to

This is a love story in two parts that becomes whole. Zeke and Maura have loved each other, but neither can be totally what the other desires. Their friendship remains strong but fraught with yearning. Rory and Zeke have been with each other through thick and thin as friend and lovers. When desires are addressed what should have been an erotic moment or two or three, flames out of control. With passions and emotions enflamed there is no turning back for any of the triad. Insecurities, unspoken ...more

Disclaimer: I was offered this book for free for an honest review.

In true Melissa Schroeder fashion, the heroes are alpha but flawed and the heroine is just as alpha but with her own set of flaws. Rory and Zeke seem an unlikely pair and an even more unlikely couple, but they work. With Maura added to the mix you have a bundle of angst, emotion, and off the charts sex. Some suspense in the middle of it all makes this book perfect!

The book flowed at just the right pace, the characters were well

Another great read in the "A Little Harmless" series! What started as a week of fun for Zeke, Rory, and Maura can become something much more, if they let it. Maura is one of my favorite heroines. She's tough and smart and cares deeply. Zeke and Rory are a great match for her and each other. I've been waiting to read this since Maura appeared in Connor's story. A Little Harmless Fantasy is not just a sexy story, but shows great character development and the effort those characters put in to a ...more

This book is hot, hot, hot! Maura being the smart girl with an over protective big brother is always taking on everything. She has been in love with Zeke for awhile now and then in comes Rory who is love with Zeke. This three have some massive chemistry. I really enjoyed this book and the Little Harmless series. I love the BDSM aspect as well as the true feelings that really show in Melissa's words. A fabulous book!

Great series

I love this series.
This is the story of Maura who is from a previous book and Conners sister. She is coming to Hawaii with two of her other co-workers and 1 is an ex-boyfriend. Someone is watching Maura and the guys are trying to keep her safe. Except that things happen and Maura gets to live out a fantasy with Zeke her ex and Rory who is Zeke's boyfriend. Things get hot in Hawaii.
Love this series. Love these characters. Lots of old characters making appearances.

"...Zee likes to watch.”

He teased her earlobe with his teeth as her brain shut down. God that felt good. She hadn’t had a man since Zee and it had been so long.

“He what?" She asked closing her eyes enjoying the way his teeth grazed her ear.

He took his sweet time answering her. Of course, she didn’t really care because what he was doing to her ear lobe had her entire soul humming.

“He likes to watch me tie a woman up and dominate her.”

The image he was creating was a little too much for her to

In the latest installment in the Harmless series I'm left with the impression that the only thing more satisfyingly sexy than one Irishman is two Irishmen. Zeke and Rory both ooze sex appeal and brought me more happiness than my morning bowl of Lucky Charms and its leprechaun! They've both led dangerous lives which leads to a number of enemies wanting to harm them. Beneath their bad boy exteriors though lies two men who've been hurt in the past and thus saying those three little words is very ...more

A Little Harmless Fantasy is the eighth book in the Harmless series. Although is part of an established series it can be read as a stand alone and as a series freak I am eager to read the previous books after reading this little gem of a story.

Zeke and Rory have had an on and off relationship for years, but have recently made it permanent. However, while apart Zeke and Maura had a relationship that ended when Zeke could not give Maura what she needed - to be dominated. Rory finds Maura

I’m the first to admit that I absolutely love the Harmless Series by Melissa Schroeder, and the newest addition, A Little Harmless Fantasy, does not disappoint. From the first word I was drawn in, there was just something about Rory, Zeke and Maura that just worked. I love bisexual men, much like Maura does, and these two Irishmen are drool worthy.

This is a MMF ménage, which means the men play with one another alone and with Maura and

Ok, I have to start this off with a wow is it hot! You have two people hopelessly in love with one man who end up finding that maybe three is better than two.

Mel gives us a strong heroine with a lot of issues to work through but at her core she is deeply in love with her ex-Zeke. They love each other but Maura knows she needs to have a Dom to be completely happy and Zeke is just not that person. Love for one another makes them split up as they both know the fundamental need she has would not be

I have been a fan of Melissa Schroeder's erotic romances for years, and her Harmless series is one of my favorite series out there! When I was asked to review A Little Harmless Fantasy I said yes, and started it right away! It did not disappoint and ALHF is a new favorite and a hot m/m/f romance!

Maura is Conner's little sister, who we first met in A Little Harmless Fascination. She used to go out with Zeke, who is now with Rory. When the three of them go to Hawaii they decide to spend the week

A Little Harmless Fantasy by Melissa Schroeder is an excellent hot romance read.

Maura Dillon has always lived her life on her own terms and did what she wanted. She never imagined herself torn between two very sexy men. Zeke and Rory have been friends for years and have had an on and off relationship through those years. Rory had a near death experience epiphany that made him realize he loved and needed Zeke in his life forever. Their casual relationship lead them to living together. Once they

Let me start by saying that I have been following Melissa Schroeder for years. I have read every book she has written. I have been waiting sometimes impatiently for a new Harmless book because this is one of my all-time favorite series. I am happy that she has written another MMF book. This is not your ordinary MMF book because both of the men are real men. There is nothing feminine about Zeke or Rory. I read a lot of MM and MMF books, and this one stands out for me. The characters are both ...more

I am a huge fan of the Harmless series and I'm pleased that ALH Fantasy had a lot of the elements that you would expect from this sexy series.

Although it was focusing on Maura, Zeke and Rory's story in Miami, they do go over to Hawaii to see Maura's brother, Conner. Of course this means that some of the favourite characters get involved as Maura is a newly formed submissive and although has the hots for big Dom Rory and his lover Zeke, there is no way she could miss up an opportunity to visit

I am a huge fan of the Harmless series and I am always excited when a new release date rolls around. I really enjoyed this book. One of my favorite things about this series is that we get to see characters from the previous books in the series. We also usually have met at least one or possibly two of the new main characters in the previous books so we already have a bit of background on them so it makes it that much easier to connect with the

Let us all admit it...we have fantasied about a three-some once in our life. However, it may not be the way Maura Dillon did.

If you are familiar with the "A Little Harmless" series (if you are not, start reading them NOW), the series has followed the lives of Maura Dillon, a security tech specialist and her relationship with individuals she has met in Hawaii. She is in Miami running the security company owned by her brother Connor and his best friend Zeke. Also working in Miami, is Zeke's lover

A very sexy, steamy love story with Zeke, Maura, and Rory.

There was a bit of suspense, a little action, and some additional angsty moments. I kept waiting for someone to listen to Maura and believe her, but I was sorely disappointed. Her situation helped to explain why she struggled with the way she was treated.

I liked how Maura and Rory worked around to changing their minds about each other. It was also nice to revisit some of the characters from earlier books. It made me want to re-read them.
