Review - DOWN ON HER KNEES by Christine Bell

**Provided ARC for Review**


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…

   The story sucks you in right from the beginning.  Courtney and Rafe have a mutual set of friends and are always around each other.  During one of their outings Courtney finds out that Rafe is a Dominant.  While she can’t deny she finds him attractive, she doesn’t want any part of a D/s relationship.  Rafe knows how Courtney feels, but he can’t ignore the sexual tension between them.  He believes she is resistant for all the wrong reasons.  He wants to show her, in four scenes, what she is missing. 
    Once Courtney finally agrees, the sparks really start to fly.  Rafe can’t believe how responsive she is and hates that they are limited to only four scenes together.

Her tongue poked out and wet her lips, and suddenly he was done thinking, opting instead just to feel.  And right now, he wanted nothing more than to feel that mouth on him.
For the first time since he’d implemented the four-scene rule five years before, it didn’t seem like enough. 
    Both Courtney and Rafe struggle with their feelings for each other.  Courtney is afraid to lose herself and Rafe is afraid to give his heart to someone.  This is a story about the struggles to overcome their past and learn to let go.   I understood why both were hesitant to let go of their past as they were both horrible; however, I wanted them to find their HEA.  They were both so good for each other and  just could not see it.
     As I don’t do spoilers, you will need to read the book to see how it ends.  However, I will say that you will not be disappointed in purchasing this read.  The steam factor is off the charts and let’s be honest, who doesn’t like a hot cop in uniform!! 

“I guess part of me was afraid if I admitted how I felt about you, I’d be vulnerable again.” ~Rafe

“…I’m in love with you, and I will do anything it takes to earn your love again in return.” ~Rafe
“You know, I’m not the expert, but I’m pretty sure if you’re going to beg, you should he on your knees” ~Courtney
