When Maxwell “Max” Chandler’s fiancée breaks off their engagement, he feels guilty for being so incredibly relieved. He knows his best friend, Anna Dewinter, will understand and undoubtedly be pleased as she had always told him that his fiancée simply wasn’t right for him. When he tells Anna, and she in turn tells him that she has broken things off with her most recent fling, the two decide to celebrate. When one simple kiss turns into a night of incredibly heated passion, Max immediately wants more than just sex with Anna. Several years worth of being her best friend and pseudo big brother have flown out the window and Max wants more, much more. Max fears that Anna will be frightened by his desire for something lasting, but he is determined to be more than her best friend.
Anna Dewinter has never taken any man seriously, typically nixing her relationships before they have a chance to really get started. She can’t believe that Max’s fiancée has called off their engagement, having always thought that Max was the most perfect man, and harboring a secret desire for him for several years. When she and Max spend the night together, it is the most magical night of her life. After that one night turns into several more nights, Anna begins to panic and, fearful of losing control, she feels that she has to end the relationship before it had a chance to reach full bloom.
Max suspects that Anna’s reluctance to enter into any relationship goes much deeper than the simple need to be in charge, and his stubborn determination to reach her is heartening. Anna and Max are both well-written as successful business owners, and their reasons for wanting different things out of their relationship are completely understandable. With A LITTLE HARMLESS SEX, Ms. Schroeder gives her readers just that, and so much more. This is a passionate love story that is very satisfying and I give it a very high recommendation.
