Infatuation: A Little Military Harmless Romance
Francis McKade is a man in lust. He's had a crush on his best friend's little sister for years but he has never acted on it. Besides that fact that she's Malachi's sister, he's a Seal and he learned his lesson with his ex-fiancé. Women do not like being left alone for long months at a time. Still, at a wedding in Hawaii anything can happen—and does. Unfortunately, after the best night of his life, he and Mal are called away to one of their most dangerous missions.
Shannon is blown over by Kade. She's always had a crush on him and after their night together, it starts to feel a little like love. But, after the mission, Kade never calls or writes and she starts to wonder if it was all a dream. Until one night, her brother Mal drags him into her bar and grill and Shannon gets the shock of her life.
Kade isn't the man Shannon knew in Hawaii, or even the last few years. Twelve hours of torture changes a man, especially one who had never felt so vulnerable. He still can't shake the terror that keeps him up at night. Worse, he is realizing that the career he loves just might be over.
Shannon is still mad, but she can't help but hurt for the man she loves. He is darker, a bit more dangerous, but beneath that, he is the Kade she's known for so many years. When he pushes her to her limits in the bedroom, Shannon refuses to back down. One way or another, this military man is going to learn there is no walking away from love—not while she still has breath in her body.
Warning: This book contains two infatuated lovers, some drunken dancing, a hard-headed military man, a determined woman, some old friends, and a little taste of New Orleans. As always, ice water is suggested while reading. It might be the first military Harmless book, but the only thing that has changed is how hot our hero looks in his uniform—not to mention out of it.

INFATUATION, the first book in the new spin off from the Harmless series was absolutely fantastic! With a smokin' hot Navy SEAL hero, a strong and sassy heroine, some very inventive sex, and a super sweet love story, INFATUATION is sure to be loved by the Little Harmless Addicts and newbies to the series alike.
Shannon Dupree has been lusting after her brother Malachi's best friend Kade for a long time, but he's been hands off. So, when the opportunity came for her to make her move on him arises at her sister's wedding in Hawaii, she takes the bull by the horns. Their one night of exquisite passion is interrupted by his duty however, and Shannon loses track of him for four months.
Francis McKade can't believe that his buddy's sister is coming on to him, making his many naughty dreams of her come true. But after he leaves on a mission that goes terribly wrong, he comes back a changed man.
No longer the man that Shannon knew previously, Kade is sure that he can't be the man for her. But Shannon sees the man that he was lurking beneath the surface. And she's going to prove that she's just the woman that he needs.
I'm going to start right off the bat by saying that I LOVE the Harmless series, so of course I could not wait for INFATUATION: A Little Harmless Military Romance to come out. I am happy to say that the type of story that I've come to expect with Melissa Schroeder's writing is in full force here.
Kade is such a great hero. Hot, dominant, and patriotic: how can you get any better than that? He goes through some trauma in the book, and it was hard to see his personality change after his time away. But the hard times were worth it in the end, and it was wonderful to see the return of his sexy side.
Shannon was the epitome of my favorite kind of heroine. She's strong, sassy, confident, and not afraid to go after what she wanted. Being the youngest sister in the Dupree family could not have been easy for her, but she was able to hold her own.
Besides the great characters, INFATUATION has a great story with some true to life situations, extremely steamy love scenes, and we are treated to visits from quite a few members of the Harmless gang. The best part was that there are even more new characters that are going to be a part of this new series. I absolutely devoured this book, and was sad to see it end.
I think that INFATUATION is the beginning of something great, and I can't wait to see what's going to happen next!
