Quickie Review: A Little Harmless Sex (Harmless #1) by Melissa Schroeder

Synopsis (Goodreads):
Is it love, or just a little harmless sex?
Max has always been Anna's knight in shining armor. But Max has always seen her as a charming, and very sexy, little sister.

Until Max's cold fiance dumps him, Anna unloads another of her many conquests and she invites him over for margaritas and Mexican food. Too much tequila, too much flirting, and too many years of fighting the attraction -- Max loses control and has mind-blowing sex with Anna on her couch. And in her shower. And in her bed.

When the sun rises the next morning, both of them must face that their night together is just the first of many. For Max, he knows he wants Anna forever, but convincing a commitment-phobe like Anna is no easy task. For Anna, she can't believe she has finally slipped beneath Max's steely self-control. He is every woman's dark, wet fantasy come true. But what happens when the Max pushes Anna for more than just A Little Harmless Sex?

Warning, this title contains the following, explicit sex, graphic terms for body parts, torture via silk stockings, a little spanking, and shower and office sex.
My Thoughts:  Fast and sweetly naughty, this book was a fun little read.  I loved the dynamic between Max and Anna, especially Anna's total aversion to committing herself to a man.  The silly girl just couldn't see what was right in front of her.

Anna and Max were pretty darn explosive together.  He knows it.  She knows it.  She just doesn't want to admit that he's managing to worm his way into her heart.  His dominance in the bedroom coupled with her unwillingness to label them as a couple gave this book a little extra oomph.

While there's nothing earth shattering in this book it was fun and just naughty enough to make me smile.  I've been impressed with the non-paranormal contemporary romances I've picked up lately.  This one keeps the streak alive.
