A decadent dare to be different
between a man who can’t admit he wants to submit and a woman whose dominant tendencies are hidden behind wholesome image.
Rafe Steele is a decorated war hero who has lead men into hostile territory and brought them back because of his ability to take charge. His strong dominant show just about every aspect of his life except one. He desires to yield control in the bedroom, but it’s something he can’t bring himself to admit to his brothers. Unknowingly they convince him to set up a perfect night through a private matchmaking agency. He thought one night of experimentation would be enough. But when he meets a vixen under angel’s clothing who makes him want more, can he get past his worries and take her dare for more?
Summer’s daytime job as an elementary school teach fulfills her need to nurture young minds. But her need for a man who’s secure and brave to appreciate and connect with her regardless of her dominatrix tendencies isn’t quite so easy to find. Unable to form bonds with the men she’s seen, she looks to Fanta-C to set her up. She never expect a blind one night stand would lead her to Rafe Steele, a man who fulfilled her in every way she craved. But can she convince him to go for more?
The role reversal is not typical and I found it to be a nice change of pace. I loved how Rafe and Summer fought for control in the bedroom and found Rafe’s turmoil between his manly man demeanor and his desire to submit interesting. So the reason for my rating is that for some reason I couldn’t fully connect with either main characters and also felt it could have been steamier.
I’ve read several of Jennifer Probst’s books and I always enjoy how she writes very likeable characters and an interesting story with a good amount of sexiness and romance. Dare Me is no exception.
Dare Me is novella #3 in Steele Brothers series by Jennifer Probst. Told from both point of view and a happy ending. It can be read as a standalone.
