“Stop avoiding this conversation.”
“What conversation are we having, McKenna?” He sucked the skin at the base of my neck, pressing sweet kisses against my collarbone.
“Sex,” I murmured.
“You’re not ready yet,” he said.  I pulled back and gave him a quizzical look. Was he serious right now? “I’ll know when you’re ready,” he continued.  “You need to trust me.” His hands cupped my cheeks and he pressed a kiss to my forehead. I didn’t want to be treated like a china doll. I’d waited long enough for this moment in my life and I was sure.
“And you need to trust me.” I might be damaged, but I was stronger than he was giving me credit for. I could handle this. Couldn’t I?
He watched me with hooded eyes, taking stock of everything he saw – every emotion and stray thought racing through my brain. My entire body was alive and humming. It was as though he could see straight into me and read all my inner thoughts. It was the oddest sensation.
“Tell me what you want to know,” he said, brushing the hair back from my face. 
My stomach was coiled tight and nervous energy shot thru my veins. Something was about to happen. I’d pushed him and now I needed to be sure I really was ready. “You seem so sure. And I don’t know what I’m doing. I just need to know that’s okay with you.”
“That’s a turn on, trust me. I can be a little dominating in the bedroom.”
Finally, we were discussing the elephant in the room. “A dominant? Like…you want a submissive?” My entire body was tingling. I had to know what I was signing up for.
“Mmm, not exactly.” His large palm curled around the back of my neck, his thumb stroking the skin there. “I just like taking charge. Nothing extreme, I promise.”
My belly tightened. “I’m not into pain, Knox.”
“That’s not my thing at all, angel. You’d never have to worry about me hurting you.” His voice was sincere, and his warm honey eyes were loving and kind, but that didn’t stop the uncertainty raging inside me.
“What do you want, then?”
“Control. To show you pleasure.”
His words sent a jab of lust straight between my thighs and I let out a whimper. Something about this man, his desire to bring me pleasure, lit me up from the inside out. If he had a trace of dominance, perhaps I had a trace of submissiveness.
“You like that, don’t you, angel?” he asked. I nodded slowly, biting my lip as I gazed up at him. “Soon,” he promised. “My self-control is almost non-existent where you’re concerned.”
Just when I thought everything will fall in place for McKenna and Knox, BAM, here comes the obstacle. I am sitting here trying to figure out if she will let this slide or if she will let him explain. I love every single minute of “When I Surrender.” I love Knox, him and his imperfections, I love McKenna, her and her imperfections, they both have an issue of letting go and just seeing how things will play out in their lives. Even though McKenna wants to believe that she trusts Knox, deep down she doesn’t because of his past. I know she would like to move past it all and love him but I don’t think she will be able to. Knox, Knox, Knox, I think Kendall have an awesome way of letting her readers fall in love with her alpha male characters, because let me tell you, I love Knox. He is so sweet the way how he looks out for his brothers, even though he thinks that he is not a loyal man and there’s no good in him, he is everything and much more. The love scenes we fan-freaking-tastic, I loved every single one of them, the details were don’t with finesse precision and made me fall deeper in love with Knox. I cannot wait to find what Kendall have in story for Knox and McKenna’s journey.
