Style: Erotic Romance
Story: FAIRLY GOOD
Intimacy level: Sex-citingly ENJOYABLE / GOOD
Series: (Dare Me book#3)
Nice story, good physical chemistry . With this story, I felt it was nice, but I personally think the love scenes where hot and probably surpass the storyline. When I started reading, I was interested and Courtney and Rafe's spat back forth made you want to read more, but somewhere along the way, sometimes the story became ok to good. I have to commend the author on the creative ways on using Courtney and Rafe sexually together and their role play, it brought the book up a notch for me. I didn't read the other books in the series but was still able to follow this story.
As I said prior the story wasn't bad it was ok and likable. I really love Rafe, but he was more of a softy Dom. That's not bad, but would have liked to see him be more aggressive, after all, his agreement with Courtney gave us something to look forward to.
Overall, very hot sexual attraction and action with a likable story.
The quality I love about this series from Christine Bell is that every book is funny, with genuine laugh-out-loud dialog and moments that make the insta-chemistry totally believable. No angsty, whiny tone romance heroines here. Christine Bell's girls are grown up, feisty, go-getters who have genuine moments of self-doubt and then put on their big girl pants and pull it together. She gets five stars from me just for that.
This is a light read. No hard-core BDSM. BDSM themes and role play are highlighted, but mostly this is sizzle at a higher heat level. As usual, there is a super-hot alpha-male who knows how to use the dirty talk to ramp up anticipation. This book has all the right stuff, and even though it's light and a quick read, the story feels complete.
You don't have to read the prior books, as this can definitely stand alone, but knowing the back stories of the other characters mentioned will add to the humor and enjoyment of the book.

Summary (from Goodreads):
Four lessons, no strings…
Detective Rafe Davenport has always made Courtney DeLollis uneasy. While her instincts whisper, Touch him, her mind says, Run. But since she learned that he’s dominant in the bedroom, she hasn’t been able to forget about it. She should be appalled—she knows all too well what happens when a man has too much control—but a deeper, darker part of her is fascinated...
And so is Rafe. The sexual tension between them is thick enough to touch, and damn, does he want to touch. So he suggests something that will benefit them both. Four scenes—because anything more is a relationship, and Rafe won’t go there ever again. Each scenario is designed to tease and torment. To show Courtney that with every submission comes the reward of scintillating pleasure. But once he has Courtney down on her knees, Rafe realizes that she might be the one woman capable of bringing him to his…
What I Liked:
I loved Down for the Count, book one of the Dare Me series, so when I saw that Down on Her Knees was on sale for $0.99, I knew I had to buy it! I've read other Christine Bell books and she has not disappointed me! Her Brazen romances are always so steamy and so romantic.
Courtney has always been secretly intrigued by Rafe, although she says she isn't interested in him or his adventurous bedroom activities. Rafe has always been attracted to Courtney, and he finally has her where he wants her - fascinated, and too interested to turn him down. Four scenes is all they'll do - because neither want a relationship - but will four scenes be enough?
I adored Courtney and Rafe! From the first scene, their chemistry is off the charts. Christine Bell writes sexual tension so well! In all of her books, the hot tension precluding the sexy times is almost always just as hot as the sexy times themselves.
Courtney is a likable heroine, and Rafe is a charming and wicked hero. He's domineering but so caring and considerate. And he's a man in uniform! I have a soft spot for those types. Courtney is nervous of trying Rafe's style, but she's always very adventurous herself. I love her bravery!
Suffice it to say, I really liked the characters and their character development. I think they're a great pair together, and I enjoyed watching them grow together. They worked for their happy ending, which made me happy!
Like I said, the steamy scenes are so steamy! Christine Bell is a master when it comes to all the good stuff. No need to worry, Rafe's activities aren't terribly risque, nothing like hardcore erotica material. I really enjoyed the chemistry and tension between these two characters, and all the steamy interactions they shared!
Overall another solid (and hot) book from Christine Bell! I adore her books and will definitely be looking out for more from her in the future.
What I Did Not Like:
I hope this isn't TOO spoilery, but I really wish these two had done more scenes together! I felt like my Kindle was going to catch fire, just from reading this book. More is always better, in romance novels! (In my opinion.)
Would I Recommend It:
I highly recommend this particular Brazen novel, especially for the $0.99 I paid! I believe it's usually $2.99 but still! Any of Christine Bell's Brazen novels are worth the money.
4 stars. Christine Bell has yet to disappoint me! This Dare Me series is so good. Quick, steamy, and filled with really likable, realistic characters!
The biggest issue I had with this book was the feeling that I was missing something because it’s clear a few pages in that there are at least a couple of books in this series before this one, and that Rafe and Courtney met each other previously in one and that they have had a standing attraction that Courtney doesn’t know how to handle. She’s just getting out of an abusive/controlling relationship and she equates Rafe’s Dom reputation to it. She feels as if she’d be going from the frying pan into the fire by getting involved with him. Rafe also has his insecurities, since he lost his fiance and therefore must never love again.
The story’s straightforward, there is chemistry between the characters and the sex is good. I think I didn’t connect with Courtney because she was a bit judgy about the BDSM, or Rafe since he was all “I only do four scenes so the women don’t get attached.” There wasn’t anything between them that really stood out from the myriad of romance novels I’ve read. I just wish I had known about the earlier books because I might have tried to read them first and it might have changed my perception of this book.
