Steele Brothers series, #3

DARE ME Synopsis:

As a military leader back from the war, and the youngest of his two dominant older brothers, Rafe Steele struggles with a secret. He craves surrender in the bedroom under the controlled hands of a Dominatrix. When his brothers offer him an experience through the exclusive agency, FANTA-C, he jumps at the chance to experience one perfect night. After one experiment, he’s sure he’ll be able to move on. But he never counted on Summer Preston to strip down his walls and make him want more so much more...

An elementary school teacher with a girl next door, fresh face, Summer is constantly barraged by men who want to take care of her, but she longs to meet a strong man who can handle her dominant ways in the bedroom. Trapped in her own storybook life, she books a one-night stand to finally experience her fantasy. But she never counted on Rafe Steele to push her boundaries in both the bedroom...and her heart.


DARE ME (Steele Brothers series, #3) 

My Review

Here in Dare Me we get the opposite of what you normally would see (or at least what I've seen as the usual) for a D/s pairing, with the woman being Dominant.  This is the first time I've read a story with a male submissive character, and I have to say--it's a hell of an interesting perspective.  Seeing things from Rafe's point of view and experiencing the pleasure from his frame of reference is actually refreshing and quite stimulating.

Love, love, love Rafe's character.  He truly shines in this story, with his conflicted thoughts that cause him so much of an internal struggle.  Summer doesn't have the same issue--she's already overcome her personal conflicts with her choice of lifestyle.  The chemistry and intensity between the two of them is extraordinary, and makes for some damn hot intimate scenes.

For me, the circumstance of the female Dominant and male submissive was unique compared to what I've read previously, and that kept me engrossed in the story.  The play between Rafe and Summer also felt more intense than what I saw in the first two books.

Final verdict...4.5 stars for Dare Me, with a huge chunk of the credit going to Rafe and his personal struggle and journey.  Again, this is recommended to fans of erotic/BDSM romance who are 18+ only due to language and explicit erotic sexual content.  At the rate these stories are going, I'm going to need a vacation in Antarctica by the time I'm done to cool back down.

BEG ME (Steele Brothers series, #4) 
SNEAK PEEK-My Review of Beg Me!

Jennifer Probst has saved the kinkiest for last with Beg Me, along with giving us a second chance romance to boot.  It does follow mostly the same formula as the first three stories in terms of the meet, one night, try for more with complications and then the resolution, but Beg Me kicks things up a notch with the most intense erotic scenes of this series.

You can't not like Remington, even when he's being stubborn and afraid of getting hurt again (yes, let's be honest-afraid).  He exudes alpha power and strength, and like his brothers before him, you'll be adding him to your permanent book boyfriends list (the extra kinky ones).  

Cara is an obvious submissive, and the way she and Remington interact clearly shows a natural match of personalities.  While we don't get a ton of background on their previous relationship with each other when they were in college, it is made up for with their story this second time around as they learn about each other again.

Highly intense and explicit, Beg Me was a 4-star read for me and another fantastic addition to the Steele Brothers series.  Recommended only for 18+ due to adult language and explicit erotic/BDSM scenes.  Have your fire extinguishers handy for this one folks, you're going to need them!
