Julienne Wulf has always played the good girl.

You know the type. The one who never got in trouble, unlike both of her brothers. But after a very public break-up, she’s ready to walk on the wild side and have her first one night stand. And she finds the perfect candidate. A man she never plans on seeing again.

Until they come face to face a few days later at her new job site.

But that’s okay, she can handle it, and handle the sexy former Army Ranger. No, wait, she isn’t going to handle him. She will deal with the situation like an adult.

Alek Johnson left Hawaii with a broken heart.

Fifteen years ago, the woman he loved dumped him when he signed up to serve in the military. Now, though, his family needs him. When Julienne shows up in Hawaii, they agree to work together and forget about their night together.

Problem is, they can’t keep their hands off each other. So they agree to a short fling, but they never expected their hearts to get involved.

Soon, tongues are wagging about their affair, and when someone from Julienne’s past threatens their future, Alek is determined to protect her at all costs.

Warning: This story includes a good woman with naughty thoughts, a hero who wants to help her live out those fantasies, a meddling family–on both sides, and a trip back to the islands. This is another Harmless story, so you know the drill. Ice water is recommended and the author takes no responsibility for overheating readers

 

 4.5 Stars

Nothing like the paparazzi to shake things up when there is nothing to be shaken up. Julienne is a low key girl with a low key life. Ending a relationship with a not so great ex has him dragging her reputation through the mud. Julienne is off to the beautiful paradise that is Hawaii for a little work and to put all the madness behind her. A layover in San Francisco finds Julienne stepping out her norm and wanting something just for fun, just for her. Walking into a hotel bar normally wouldn’t change a person’s life, but for Julienne it’s the beginning of something. Alek Johnson is a former Army Ranger who’s returning home to help his family. A honorable and loyal man who finds a new side to himself when he lays his eye on a woman who spins his world all around. One night. One fantastic night leaves a last impression that lingers on both their minds. Days later when they come face to face, even in their work environment, sparks ignite and heat takes over. Will they find their happiness in paradise?

I loved Alek and Julienne! What a couple. Their attraction may have been fast but it felt so natural. Their chemistry was beautiful and intense. Alek knew Julienne was his one and I loved how in everything they did, he did what he could to show her. They may have started from a one night stand, the more time they spent together the more you know they belong with each other.

A Little Harmless Taboo is classic Melissa Schroeder writing that I love so much. Great characters, a paradise setting and a love story you can feel through the pages. Humor and heart. We even get a visit from some beloved characters that always put a smile on my face. A trip to Ms. Schroeder’s Hawaii is never a bad thing.
