A Harmless Little Plan (Harmless #3) by Meli Raine
This book is not a standalone and contains dark triggers that is not for the light hearted. You can read my review for both book 1 A Harmless Little Game (Harmless #1) and book 2
A Harmless Little Ruse (Harmless #2) by clicking on the links respectively.
Unlike both book 1 and 2, where the author wrote each book in first person perspective, book 3 is written in dual point of view which is good in this book because readers get to feel the suspense and eagerness to find and help each other. Book 3 also picks up right where book 2 ends and a lot happens through out the book where the author tries to wrap up the storyline.
The hero is still in jail at the beginning and some time had passed since the heroine had been kidnapped. Feeling helpless, the hero doesn’t know who he can trust to go search for her but with connections in high places he was finally out; ready to do whatever it took to find her.
Within this book, readers get to experience the lengths the hero was willing to go to find and protect the heroine not matter the cost, even if that cost is his life. We also get to find out why what happened 4 years ago happened and experience more betrayal from the people surrounding the heroine’s life who she thought could be trusted.
I think at this point in the storyline when the heroine was kidnapped, her father realizes his mistakes and did a 180 on the way he treats the heroine. Her mother on the other hand, needs a reality check and unlike the father she didn’t redeem herself as a good parent. She was one of those typical uptight people who cared more of what society thought of her than the happiness of her only daughter.
The ending of the book was kind of unbelievable and through me off. When reading it, I expected more out of the author than the ending of the book she gave us and how she resolved finding and saving the heroine was stupid.
