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.
Maria is a FBI agent, an Alpha female, determined to find The DOM, a serial killer, to prove she earned her spot on the FBI, not just given it because her father was a big time FBI agent. Even if it means “pretending” to be a sub to Rome. Rome is a DOM and the HPD Police Officer in charge of the cases involving the serial killer. There is an instant attraction and chemistry between Rome and Maria, it is hot and emotional.
The smexin’ is hot and showed a softer side of BDSM, which I enjoyed. Rome was take charge in the bedroom, but he also had a lot of inner dialogue making sure he didn’t rush Maria. His inner dialogue also allowed me to “see” his thoughts and the process in his brain of falling in love with her. Maria was strong, yet vulnerable. MS wrote Maria’s thoughts and feelings so well, that I could envision how Maria saw Rome so clearly it was like I was watching a movie. I really liked the fact that Rome was a sexy DOM but at the same time so he was so emotionally in tune with Maria that he knew exactly how to work her. I FELL IN LOVE with him in one of the early scenes when Maria was looking down and he told her that looking down was a form of deference and he wasn’t into that. I feel like their D/s was a beautiful exchange of power between an Alpha Woman and an Alpha man without delving into the practices of heavy/intense pain. Everything was sensual and oh so sexxxy!! The ending has to be one of the most confrontational declarations of “I Love You” I’ve read, but I LOVED it and how it all played out
A special treat was getting to see Dee, May, Evan and Micah. I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED the way Evan, Micah and Rome interact. Dee and May’s interactions with each other and Maria had me laughing. Ms. Schroeder also teases with a glimpse of Chris’ sexy Navy Seal brother Malachi…oh how swoon worthy he is! There is another DOM I am intrigued by, but I can’t mention his name, it could be a spoiler.
A Little Harmless Submission is another winner in the A Little Harmless Series. I have enjoyed everyone of the ALH series, even the short stories that can be found on MS’s website. A Little Harmless Submission one is one of my favorites and can be read as a stand alone. I can’t wait to see what MS has in store for us addicts next!
