A Little Harmless Fascination -- Harmless Series Book 7
Wanting her isn't smart, seducing her is inevitable, but falling in love with her could be downright deadly for both of them.
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, 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.

A LITTLE HARMLESS FASCINATION is the latest installment of the Harmless series by Melissa Schroeder, and it's aptly named because I am completely fascinated with this series.
This book is about Conner Dillon. He's the ex-FBI agent from A Little Harmless Lie who was supposed to protect Dee when she ran away. Well, he is forced into vacation by his sister, and he happens to land in Hawaii (imagine that). The plan is for him to relax for a month and rent a room from his sister's old college roommate Jillian, who just happens to really turn Conner's crank!
Jillian Sawyer has always had a crush on her good friend's older brother, Conner, but seeing him out of his usual suit and tie apparel and demeanor really makes him sexier. She has issues with her family, so she's not really into relationships, but a fling with Conner may just be what she needs.
Then they sleep together. It's explosive and addictive, and neither one of them are satisfied with a one time thing. But the more they are together, the harder they fall for each other. Soon, the real fun begins because it becomes apparent that someone is out to get Jillian.
A LITTLE HARMLESS FASCINATION had it all: romance, snark, suspense, and total hotness between the sheets, on the table, on the floor, or wherever else Conner Dillon could think of! I completely devoured the pages of this book from beginning to end.
Conner and Jillian on the surface didn't seem like they would be right for each other: he appears conservative and all about the job, and Jillian was more of a carefree, bohemian personality. But beneath that surface, the two appealed to each other on a much deeper level--even more than they could have realized.
The plot has a great amount of mystery and suspense. I didn't figure out who was after Jillian until the end. The author definitely got me that time. I'm usually better at that!
One of my favorite things about this series is that I get to catch up with the Harmless gang. Characters from past books always make an appearance, and we get to see how their HEA's are going. This book was no different and I was happy to see some of my favorite couples. And I think we got some hints about some future books!
A LITTLE HARMLESS FASCINATION is another hit in this fantastic series. I loved everything about it, and I'm looking forward to future installments. This book is book seven in the series, and while it could be read as a standalone, I think you would be missing out on a great series if you don't start from book one.
