Or maybe had a little bedroom play with a uniform? Or even just thought it was sexy as hell?! Then Down on Her Knees is the book for you!
Detective Rafe Davenport and Courtney DeLollis may seem like they can't stand the company of each other. But underneath all that antagonism is a sizzling attraction that cannot be denied. Though Courtney tries...oh does she try. She knows from experience what it is like to be with a man that tries to control every aspect of herself. Ever since she found out about Rafe's dominant side though, instead of scaring her off further, she can't stop thinking about giving him that hard won control. And Rafe is not making it any easier for her to deny him. He has been intrigued by the feisty woman with a fetish for killer heels since the moment he met her. So Rafe offers her a deal and dares her to take it. Four scenes, his choice, her submission...and her pleasure.
Christine Bell is one of my must-read authors, especially in the steamy contemporary romance genre. Down on Her Knees is the third book in the Dare Me series, and these ladies can't say no to a dare. A little kink, a lot of romance, this was a hot and exciting enemies to lovers story. Between Rafe and Courtney's sexy banter and toe-curling sex scenes, there was a depth and a history to each of these characters that was masterfully peeled away as the story unfolded. Their friends and past series characters also play big roles in the story, so it was a joy to revisit with them. There were times though that I wanted to smack Rafe around...but maybe he'd like that too much. ;) All in all, Down on Her Knees was a fun and sexy story that I really enjoyed! (less)

There were some serious undertones concerning side characters but the book is aptly titled, as it is all about 'Loving Cara.' Looking forward to Zack's story! (less)

Quinn and Elise share a broken past of teenage love, demanding fathers, world travels, and music. But when Quinn chose to walk away from that, and Elise, he not only broke her heart, but left her alone. Now, ten years later, her career as a concert pianist has been destroyed and her life turned upside down. Hearing that Elise has been hospitalized after a tragic accident in his home town, Quinn can't stay away. Even while his own career and band, Shaken Dirty, seems to be falling apart around him. Always protective of her, Quinn insists on taking care of Elise after her injury. Even going so far as to kidnap her and bring her to his house to recover for the week. Together again, their teenager rivalry of one upmanship quickly returns and soon their childish pranks turn seductive. But when past fears are brought to the present, will a second chance at love be enough to fight off the demons?
Okay, if you haven't started the Shaken Dirty series yet, do it. Now! Grab book one, Crash Into Me, because this is a series that you don't want to miss! The band members themselves are not only sexy and captivating, but they each have all these little facets that are revealed with each book...you can't help but fall in love with them for their own unique reasons. The dynamics of the band itself is intense and filled with drama right now, their future up in the air. Addictions, betrayals, all this angst and inner demons. There is just so much story there to fall into and I can't wait to see how their future unfolds in upcoming books.
Quinn and Elise was such a fun couple to read about. Hilarious pranks and sizzling attraction flows from the pages, I couldn't turn them fast enough. These two have a past, which helps the timing of this new relationship that they are developing together, but despite that it all progressed at such a natural pace I was there right along with them. It's not all fun and games though for these two. Though some might say they have lived privileged lives, it wasn't all sunshine and rainbows. And when the past comes back to haunt them, neither Quinn or Elise handle the situation perfectly. They balance each other out well in that way. Good thing Quinn knows how to grovel. ;)
The only thing that was nagging me by the end was Quinn's mention of Elise's broken engagement. I thought that it was odd that Elise never brought this up, internally or externally. Especially since she was portrayed as being a lonely character. It was mentioned and then forgotten.
All in all though, a wonderfully written story that delighted me. I can't get enough of this series and will be impatiently waiting for book three! (less)

This is one of those books that everyone else seems to love but I just can't get into. I had to put it down after only a few chapters because the protagonist just rubbed me the wrong way. She acted like a fourteen year old girl trapped in a twenty year old's body and frankly, it just got to be annoying. Not to mention her instant dislike and then attraction to Colby after the exchange of only two words. I may pick this one back up later to give it another chance but as for right now, I just can't read anymore of it. (less)
