What rock have I been living under that I'm only discovering this series and this author now? I'm kicking my own ass at the moment for not finding it sooner.
Of course I'd much rather have Rafe spank me for being such a naughty girl, but that's what my fantastic imagination is for. I happen to have a type. And the kinky dirty talkers do it for me every single time. I was a little hesitant to read this when I s 5 Spank me, cuff me, kinky stars Tell me you're in, Court. I was a little hesitant to read this when I saw that Rafe has a kinky dominant side since my last couple of Brazen reads that had attempted to write this genre, failed quite badly in my eyes.
I'm so happy that Christine Bell not only met my high hopes for this book, she blew them completely out of the water, all the while doing the BDSM genre right. I devoured this book! Set aside a few hours, because this is a book you'll want to read in one sitting.
Down on Her Knees
Once you get the utter deliciousness that is Rafe, you will not want to put it down and never want it to end. The last thing Courtney DeLollis is to lose herself in another man. She's not looking for a relationship and she certainly doesn't want anything to do with the super sexy Detective that she can't seem to stop thinking about lately.
Every since she found out his "preferences", Courtney can't seem to get Rafe off of her mind. They're last conversation is not one she'd soon forget. Rafe knows what he wants, and he's not shy about making it know. He's not looking for any entanglements and he's certainly not looking for anything as complicated as a relationship. Not with his past. And even though Courtney is extremely vocal about wanting nothing to do with him, he senses her true nature. Maybe it was because his nature wouldn't allow him to leave a gauntlet unretrieved on the ground between them.
Maybe it was because he knew he had the key to unlocking something that had clearly bee trapped in her for so long. Hell, maybe it was because she was so fucking beautiful and the thought of her on her knees in front of him, begging for more of whatever he had to give, made his cock hard enough to cut glass. Whatever the case, he sure as hell couldn't bring himself to walk away. And ladies, let me tell you, when Rafe sets his mind on seduction The man does not disappoint. Courtney may not want to get wrapped up in another domineering man, but she knows her attraction to Rafe is just too strong to walk away from.
So when he offers her a way to slake their lust without any entanglements, how can she say no? No more, no less. No feelings, no complications. And oh my god! When the scenes start? This book had by far one of the hottest cop fantasies I have ever read. Underwear change required scene. So hot it might melt you on the spot scene. Prepare yourself to meet your ultimate Brazen dirty talking Dom. Rafe won my pervy little heart over from the very first chapter. I just couldn't get enough of him. Courtney was a great heroine as well. I appreciated that Christine Bell wrote a heroine that was hurt in the past, but didn't let it color her future for long.
Rafe's past also broke my heart. I completely understood his hesitancy in falling in love again. He fought it as long as he could, but when he finally fell? Nothing hotter than a man that knows how to give a good grovel. So if you enjoy dirty talking Dom heroes, sassy heroines that give as good as they get, hot as hell sex, a great story, and some kink in your books?
This is a must read! Christine Bell is an auto buy author for me as of this book, and I can't wait for more from her. I also plan to rectify my stupidity and going back to read the rest of the books in this series. If they were anywhere near as hot as this one, I have been really missing out. View all 56 comments. Feb 06, Lisa Jayne rated it really liked it Shelves: Christine Bell has done it again. I'm telling you straight readers, every novel that this author touches you can expect sizzling hot. If you're in need of a hot, sexy fix with a detective thats got the killer combination of broken and gorgeous then this will be hitting all the right brazen spots.
Hot-to-the-touch I won't be forgetting this story for some time to come Courtney DeLollis is a singleton and happy to stay that way after surviving a past relationship that was controlling and abusive. Courtney has a great group of friends and is desperate to continue to live a carefree, stable life. One thing that makes her feel uncomfortable is her dangerously, seductive detective friend, Rafe Davenport. Rafe has certain tastes in the bedroom, tastes that Courtney has just found out about and much to her disbelief he is eager to try out the sexual chemistry that has been building between them.
But with uncertainty and fascination waging a war inside Courtney gives into the offer of a no-strings arrangement between them. But once they start to experience a connection that goes beyond the bedroom they have to find a way to make a forever plan or walk away from love. What did I love? Every book in this series has grabbed my whole attention and so it goes without saying that I was looking forward to this release and i'm happy to say that this author once again delivered a sexy, flirty and erotic tale that met my expectations.
Rafe and Courtney were a really enjoyable couple to read about, he's the bossy, dominant detective, who is just the right side of broken and insatiable and she's the feisty, likeable heroine who is struggling to resist the charms of our hero inside and out of the bed. The story is well written and is perfectly paced for a short novel, once again the sexy banter is apparent in this story much like her previous books and there is never a dull or boring moment between the characters.
The verbal fore-play was almost as erotic as the deliciously written chemistry and I admit I was impressed with the authors extended kinky imagination. There is really nothing not to like about Rafe and Courtney's story, once again I have been thoroughly entertained by Christine Bell and her naughty story of love. Hands down this book delivered on the sexy, I'm assured that readers of this series are already well aware that Christine Bell is a genius at creating lasciviously, sexy scenes that make your toes curl and heart thump, that all being said I found I missed out on the romance side of the story telling with this novel.
There was plenty of kink and frolicking but I needed my heart to be invested in their relationship as well as my lusty, ogling thoughts. Christine Bell is an author not to miss out on, she has a wickedly delicious talent at writing the most tempting heroes and her stories are almost edible. If you like some kink with your romance then don't wait around go grab this book on release day View all 64 comments.

Rafe is controlled, confident and restrained in his feelings …. He had his love taken… it changed everything and he is unapologetic. He has figured out what works for him because he wanted no relationships… no ties. He has learned… 4 scenes with the same partner… then cut them loose. This way everything stays light, easy, hot and then over. Rafe is part of a group of friends which have bonded and do a lot of things together.
We connect with them at Lacey and Galen's wedding… and Courtney, the newest member of this tight group, is there. She is a recent addiction and has developed a careful ease with all of them. Her history with an ex boyfriend destroyed her confidence; he isolated her… manipulated and caused her to end up without friends, family or even a cell phone of her own.
It took a while for her to put it all together as to what was happening but once she did… she got out and moved to a new home. Courtney vowed never to be in that position again and while being self supporting as a nurse, she still is feeling her way and getting over all she experienced with Wes. It seems there was a conversation at a dinner before the wedding event and somehow Rafe and what he is came up. Courtney immediately took the stance of how she could never understand that type of behavior not being abusive… how it must be demeaning to a woman.
Rafe not being one to back down… discussed it briefly but left it open on the table for Courtney to think about… and he offered in a sexy teasing way… hey if you are interested I can show you and you will be satisfied. The wedding traditions take place… Courtney catches the bouquet and it is now time for the garter… and Rafe makes sure he is the one to travel her silky long legs and place it there… no one else.
Tingles happen, both are aware… Courtney is flustered and leaves as soon as she can. He is concerned; her car is in a bad place; she could be hit. He turns on the flashing lights startling her. They talk, she gets out of the car, he is in her face and then nothing can keep them apart… his presence is too much for her… she is so wanting, he senses it all and they let their guards down with all the passion in the moment.
It is stopped by the tow truck… but the damage is done… both felt it… both want it… and Rafe presents a concept for Courtney to consider: We do 4 specific experiences and then we will stay friends… no worries and continue that friendship with the group after. Courtney is beside herself… she felt things with Rafe she never was willing to feel before… he was strong, sure of himself… full of control and she responded deep in her soul.
She decides to go for it. It was perfect for the story and I felt it really worked. The chemistry, texting and action was perfect for these characters… each finding their way with each other… not only sexually but on another level at the same time. There was the understanding of trust and how that is the cornerstone to this type of relationship at all times. How each person is really in control, no one losing their importance… because really in order for these things to work… each must be willing and equal… The dialogue between Courtney and Rafe….
Bell is creative in the scenes Rafe does with our Courtney…. These are scenarios which were perfect for a newbie… meant to bring confidence to her willingness and both were richly rewarded. We got more than tie me up, tie me down, etc. We got people vulnerable; growing stronger because of risking their minds and hearts. It worked for me and I think it might work for you, too.
I shall keep an eye out for more releases from Christine Bell… she promises the goods and she delivers nicely.

But he's let it slip that he's into the whole Dom scene But there's something about him, a draw that makes Court question her decision to avoid "those types. He too has been very hurt from a tragedy in the past and refuses to endure that pain again. So he offers up a contract to Court. Teach her about the submissive she is deep down and instill that trust in her that she lost from her douchey ex-boyfriend. Let me tell ya Although the plot is overused and simple, the scenes are what kept me turning the pages!
Not just sex scenes but role play in it's finest! So if you're in the market for a quickie read with a fair amount of steam, very little angst, this one delivers.

Feb 06, Claire Robinson rated it really liked it Shelves: Down On Her Knees is book 3 in the Dare Me Series, and although it can be read as a standalone, I highly recommend that you read the previous books and novella from this series as each one is better or just as good as its predecessor.
It also brings you into the group of people that the books are written about. We are given a glimpse of the chemistry between Rafe Davenport and Courney Delollis in Down The Aisle, after a throwaway revelation from Cat, makes Courtney look at Rafe in a whole new light. In his police blues, he was pure fantasy. In his tux, he gave James Bond a run for his money. What more can I say, Christine Bell has inspired me to use my first image in a review, but the sexyness above is exactly how I pictured Rafe from her first description of him, this book was like my very own dream come true.

After their first "sexual tension" encounter in the 2. Let's say these scenes start being smokin' HOT and they finish being sweet. Obviously, our two characters fall in love but it is quite difficult for Rafe to get it because of his past. But, at the end, of course, we have a beautiful HEA and an epilogue!!! Girls you will fall in lust with Rafe, he is some HOT cop!! And a dirty dirty talker ; A warm summer breeze kicked up as he clamped his fingers tight around her wrists and pinned her to the hood with his hips, hard enough to make her gasp.
February 24, Rating: While her instincts whisper, Touch him, her mind says, Run. 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'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! Would I Recommend It: Any of Christine Bell's Brazen novels are worth the money. Christine Bell has yet to disappoint me! This Dare Me series is so good. Quick, steamy, and filled with really likable, realistic characters! Feb 24, Victoria rated it liked it Shelves: I like reading about kink sometimes and I love to read a dominating hero but romance that centers around "scenes" and contracts has been played out for me. That being said, I had purchased this a while ago and thought I'd give it a go. Overall, it was a quick, sexy read and I enjoyed it.
It's been a while since I've read anything from the Brazen collection and this one seemed just a bit more sexy than I remember although it's definitely BDSM-lite. Courtney finds Rafe incredibly enticing, however she's reluctant to get involved because of her last bad relationship Super-denial lockdown mode engaged.
