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…
"I found this book well written. The main and secondary characters were realistic and interesting. While I enjoyed reading this book, I would have loved to see a more softer romantic side to Rafe. At times, it is hard to tell he loves her and not just wants her. Overall, this was a great book. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series." - Cocktails and Books

I'm really liking Christine Bell's writing style. It's funny and --wowza--steamy. I wasn't too sure how much I would like this considering I'm sort of BDSMed out lately. Not to go on a rant or anything but floggers and orgasms-on-command are starting to wear on my nerves. But this is Christine Be... ...more

ARC Review.Ooh Honey. Rafe and Courtney are on fire! They have an agreement- four scenes and then walk away and no one gets hurt.
