Book Review: KNEEL DOWN by Eden Butler and Chelle Bliss

Kneel Down
Authors: Chelle Bliss and Eden Butler
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Series: Nailed Down #3

My job as a SEAL has always been to go in and save the day.
But even heroes fall. Even heroes make mistakes.

My only saving grace was Gin Sullivan.
My knock out best friend who wasn’t afraid to tell me the truth even when it hurt.
She’d pick me up when I was wallowing in my own stupidity.

It wasn’t hard for me to fall for her.
Any man would.
She was beautiful.
She was smart.
She was everything I’d ever wanted.

I had plans to tell her that, squash the pinning we’d both done for two years.
But a bullet to the gut silenced me and Gin got tired of waiting.

Now I have a new mission, one that I can’t fail:
Do whatever it takes to make Gin mine forever.

4 stars  Kneel Down is an entertaining read with wonderful characters and a great storyline.  I will admit that I have not read the previous two books in this series, but I had absolutely no trouble following along.  In fact, I loved the secondary characters (Kiel, Kit, Cara, Kane) so much that I downloaded the other 2 books so that I could have their stories!

What is not to love about Dale as he is a sexy Navy SEAL, loyal, loving,  and protective of those he loves.  He was burned pretty bad by his horrible ex-wife and his best friend, Gin, was there to support him and pick up the pieces.  Gin is a caring friend but she wants more.  The two of them have great chemistry, but they really needed to pull their heads out of their behinds!  I wanted to shake both of them at times - basically lock them in a room together and tell them to stop being so stubborn. Gin and Dale start off as best friends and I do love a good friends-to-lovers books, but Kneel Down is also about second chances. I love that this book illustrates how lack of communication or misconstrued conversations can greatly affect a relationship.  It also shows that actions can be louder than words, but sometimes those words do need to be spoken.  Overall, I enjoyed Kneel Down as it had a great storyline that moved at a good pace as well as likable and well-developed characters.  I am definitely looking forward to the next book in the series.  I received this book for free.
