Release Blitz, Review and Giveaway! A Harmless Little Game – Meli Raine
The video went viral. Of course it would. A Senator’s daughter on camera? Wouldn’t you click “share”? Besides, that’s what three of the four guys in the video did.
They shared me.
But that fourth guy? The nondescript one in the background in the upper left corner of the screen, just sitting on the couch? The only one who did nothing?
Not one single thing.
That was my boyfriend, Drew.
And that was the last time I saw him.
Until today, when my father—now on a path to the White House—hired him as head of security for my new team as I return home after four years of “recovering” in an undisclosed location that involved white lab coats, needles, pills and damage control.
You see, the other three guys never went to jail. Never had charges pressed.
Never faced consequences.

This book was pretty amazing, all the right stuff in it. Sadness, mystery, love, danger, lust..all of it. I’m so excited to read the rest of the series and find out what happens to everyone.
My heart completely breaks for Lindsay and all the pain she’s endured. And four years later, she still has to deal with the backlash from the media. Throughout the book we learn more about what happened to her and it is devastating. When she is finally released from the mental retreat, she finds that her ex-boyfriend Drew is the head of her security, and it puts a dent in her plan for revenge. It’s very easy to see the remorse coming from Drew as you read along, as well as how protective he is of her. Side note: Let me just tell you how much I HATE her parents, completely loathe them. I can only see a sliver of them ever being descent parents to her, but currently all they care about is her dad running for president and their perfect image. They were perfectly written for this story line.
There are some twists and I’m hanging on the edge of my seat, waiting for the next book. Don’t miss out on this amazing series, it is so great!
“You should be sorry,” I snap, marching toward my destination, fighting the soft ground. I don’t want to talk to him. I don’t want to do this. Not now. Definitely not right now. I haven’t seen him for four years. Four long, painful, horrible years. More than 1,400 days of waking every morning knowing I wasn’t with him. Knowing he sat there that night and did nothing while three men raped me. Degraded me. Used and abused me and enjoyed it.
My body goes into a full-blown supernova, skin on fire at the thought. My rage cannot be contained by a mere mortal body.
I turn around. He’s right there, following me.
“Go the fuck away, Drew. I told you. I hate your guts. Leave me alone.”
At least, I think that’s what I say. My mind can’t process words and thoughts right now. I am fixated on the red door at the back entrance of the house, the sprawling mansion that is the only home I’ve ever known, aside from Daddy’s townhome in Washington D.C. If I can make it to that red door without Drew touching me, if I can make it to my bedroom and to my medications where I can take enough to fall asleep, maybe I can get my brain to work again.
