Security expert Conner Dillon isn’t a man who often takes a vacation. So when he is ordered to take a month off and his sister insists on a trip to
Hawaii, he isn’t very happy. But, after seeing his landlady Jillian Sawyer again, he might just find something—or someone—to occupy his time.
For years, Jillian has always had a crush on Conner. Now an erotic romance author with a thing for Doms, she finds herself beyond intrigued by the man. He is good to the core, but there is something else darker in him that calls to her.
After one night in bed, they both find themselves addicted. In Jillian, Conner has found the perfect sub…and in him she finds someone she can trust. Falling in love isn’t what they expected, but walking away is impossible—especially when they realize someone wants Jillian dead.
WARNING this book contains the following: An uptight security expert who prefers schedules, a romance writer who does not, tattoos, a trip to the Aloha Swap Meet, two hunky neighbors who irritate our hero, Hawaiian scenes, and of course this would not be a Harmless book without a trip to Rough 'n Ready. Ice is recommended as any Harmless Addict will tell you, but the author takes no responsibility if a reader should become overheated. Read at your own risk.
Conner, after being in the hospital suffering from chest pains goes to
after his younger sister forces him to take time off of work and relax. Former
FBI agent turned security expert is a workaholic, so the last thing that he
wants to do is relax. In Hawaii
he stays with Jillian, his sisters best friend. Jillian comes from a screwed up
family and is the complete opposite of Conner. Jillian always wanted to me a
sub, but it is hard for her to trust a man enough to open herself up like that.
Knowing Conner for over 10 years and knowing the kind of guy he is, she knows
that she can trust him 100%, thus begins their Dom/sub relationship, which
leads to something neither of them were expecting.
I loved Conner! For those of you who are familiar with the Harmless series, I never thought a guy could come close to Evan, but Conner is definitely high up there! Jillian describes him as "quiet, domineering and gorgeous". What girl wouldn't be attracted that? I also really liked Jillian's character. I felt bad for her because of all of her family drama, but she was a good person who deserved so much happiness.
A Little Harmless Fascination is just as hot and sexy as the other books in the series! It isn't as heavy in the BDSM as some of the other books, but it was still a very entertaining and enjoyable read!
