More About the Author

Born to an Air Force family at an Army hospital, USA TODAY Bestselling author Melissa Schroeder has always been a little bit screwy. She was further warped by her years of watching Monty Python and her strange family. Her love of romance novels developed after accidentally picking up a Linda Howard book. From then on, she was hooked. She read close to 300 novels in one year and decided romance was her true calling instead of the literary short stories and suspense stories she had been writing. After many attempts, she realized that romantic comedy, or at least romance with a comedic edge, was where she was destined to be.

Influences in her writing come from Nora Roberts, Jenny Crusie, Susan Andersen, Amanda Quick, Jayne Anne Krentz, Julia Quinn, Christina Dodd, and Lori Foster. Since her first release in 2004, Melissa has written close to thirty short stories, novellas and novels released with seven different publishers in a variety of genres and time periods. Those releases included a 2005 Eppie Finalist, Two Capa finalists, and an International ebook best seller in June of 2005. Surrender was named top Category Romance by Authors After Dark, and she was named Author of the Year and Most Accessible Author.

Since she was a military brat, she vowed never to marry military. Alas, fate always has her way with mortals. Her husband is an Air Force major, and together they have their own military brats, two girls, and an adopted dog-daughter. They live wherever the military sticks them, which, she is sure, will always involve heat and bugs only seen on the Animal Discovery Channel. In her spare time, she reads, complains about bugs, travels, cooks, reads some more, watches her DVD collections of Arrested Development and Seinfeld, and tries to convince her family that she truly is a delicate genius. She has yet to achieve her last goal.

She has always believed that romance and humor go hand in hand. Love can conquer all and as Mark Twain said, "Against the assault of laughter, nothing can stand." Combining the two, she hopes she gives her readers a thrilling love story, filled with chuckles along the way, and a happily ever after.

I've been really enjoy the Harmless series and was excited to get an advanced eARC to review. This book follows Jocelyn, who happens to be Chris's sister (hero of book 2) and Kai, the brother of May (heroine of book 3). Both Jocelyn and Kai are on the mend and end up turning to each other, first as friends but the attraction between them is just too much to ignore.

After all the last 3 books in the series were exploring the world of BDSM, it was a little refreshing to leave it behind for a book. Don't get me wrong, we still get some steamy sex scenes, just without the "kinkier" side. And what I've loved about this series all along is how intertwined all the characters are, and how their stories aren't finished with the last page of their respective books, but they continue to grow as the series goes on.

So, back to Jocelyn and Kai. I enjoyed these characters, both are strong with major issues they need to work through before they can commit to each other. I suppose my one "complaint" is that Kai's broken heart seems to be equated with the same level of recovery as Jocelyn's dealing with her stalker (for lack of a better word). But overall, I very much enjoyed this book and can't wait to see who gets starring roles in the next book.

This is the story of Kai (May's brother) and Jocelyn (Chris' sister). Jocey comes to the island in search of healing from a break up and a stalker ex-boss. Her first night there she meets sexy tattooed Hawaiian Kai. The emotions each character showed and each battle they struggled through was described very well and we are able to see how strong they are together. This book did not had any BDSM, which is fine. It did not need it for the story was steamy all by itself.

The biggest thing I can say about this book is *sigh*.

It is another awesome installment by Melissa Schroeder in this beautiful Haiwaiian themed series. Unlike the previous books in series this isn't BDSM at all, but it's just as good!

Kai and Jocelyn are just two people who have issues and are trying to find themselves again. We have all had drama, pain, and loss and that helps us connect to these two strong characters.

Amazingly, Melissa keeps every characters unique flavor in every single book, and yet adds another dimension to them at the same time.

You can start with this book, but if you do you'll only end up going back to the beginning so do yourself a favor and just start with the first book and don't forget the shorts posted on the authors webpage.

After being attacked by her boss, pastry chef Jocelyn Dupree has moved to Hawaii to be near her brother and to start a new life. While she finds new friend Kai Aiona sexy, the skittish Jocelyn doesn't think she's ready for a romance. But the more she begins to trust Kai, the more she reconsiders her initial thoughts to keep him at arm's length.

Kai's heart is also on the mend after a bad relationship and the last thing he needs is a woman so laden with baggage. But every time Jocelyn smiles he about comes undone. Soon he's finding any excuse to be with her and she's opening her heart and sharing the details of her past. Kai wants her to share her past with him, but he's not ready to reciprocate. Jocelyn refuses to accept this one-sided aspect of their relationship, but Kai won't budge. Jocelyn has come to the realization that she loves this man more than anyone in her life, but will love be enough to keep them together?

I've become addicted to Melissa Schroeder's Harmless series and this fifth story is no exception. Jocelyn is a heroine that a reader can really respect. Although brutally attacked by her horrid boss, she's unwilling to allow that experience to wreck her life. She may still have some fear issues but her tenacity for overcoming her fears is to be applauded. Kai, for all his anger at his past relationship, is still a caring, honorable man. I felt he held back a little too long but when Jocelyn made it clear she wanted to get back in the saddle again, so to speak, Kai's inner Alpha reared its head and showed Jocelyn he was more than man enough for the job. Kai and Jocelyn made a wonderfully believable, sexy couple and the storyline kept the pace brisk for a thoroughly deliciously and highly entertaining read. I look forward to the next installment of this thrilling series.

Jocelyn Dupree has had a rough year; a year that included sexual harassment, stalking and a bad breakup. Jocelyn has finally gathered up the pieces of her life and she's ready to move on. First stop Hawaii to see her brother Chris and his wife. Hawaii seems like the perfect place to build something new for herself.

Kai Aiona has always been the guy to pick up the pieces of a woman's broken heart. However, since his last breakup he has no interest in dealing with another woman's problems and he's definitely not looking for a relationship. Sometimes when you're not looking things find you.

Jocelyn and Kai can't seem to avoid each other on this tiny island. Sparks fly between these two but both are hesitant to enter a new relationship especially one with baggage. Nevertheless, some things you start you just can't stop.

I have A Little Harmless Addiction and it's this marvelous story! I cannot believe that this is the fifth book in the series and it's taken me this long to discover it! It is not necessary to read the books in order to follow this series. I'm hooked on Melissa Schroeder's fabulous, sensual storytelling! Jocelyn and Kai are two wonderfully developed characters with deep cuts to their hearts. Neither is eager to begin something but it's inevitable once they meet. You can absolutely feel the fire between them when they meet. I love this relationship! Jocelyn and Kai have sensational chemistry and a sweet story that will make you fall for them. I love the setting; Hawaii makes a beautiful backdrop to this love story! The secondary characters are lovable and funny! You won't be sorry you acquired A Little Harmless Addiction! It's got heart, passion, family and much more! A Little Harmless Addiction is a lively sultry story that will leave you wanting more!
