Product Description

A woman who refuses to be tied down...

Investigative reporter Rachel Dawson is always looking for her next big story. While working on a feature about BDSM, she lands a one-night, no-holds-barred pass into the exclusive sex club, Benediction. Rachel doesn't have a deviant bone in her body—or so she thought—until the infuriating, ex-soldier Logan Bradford convinces her to try rope bondage under his capable hands. But a steamy night turns deadly when Rachel and Logan witness a gruesome murder.

A Dom who's determined to bind her to him...

Framed for a crime they didn't commit and hunted by corrupt FBI agents, they flee. As Rachel and Logan search for evidence to clear their names, the attraction they've been fighting ignites into fiery passion. Love is the last thing Rachel wants, but night by night, as Logan binds her body, he unravels the knots around her heart. And when they uncover a shocking political conspiracy, Rachel will stop at nothing to reveal the truth…and it just might kill her.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic steamy read 17 November 2015
By Shirley Quinones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
After spending the good part of a week feeding my series OCD and reading the previous books in the series, I found myself having mixed feelings about starting Blue Blooded.

You see, Rachel had not made a huge impression on me and I was hesitant about reading her story. Thankfully, Logan was one of the previous characters that had caught my eye so I decided to give the book a try before letting myself be led by my feelings towards Rachel.

And I am glad that I decided to go ahead with this read. Although the beginning felt a bit awkward with that first scene between Logan and Rachel, as the story progressed and the plot started evolving, I found myself immerse in the story and enjoying both the romance and the intrigue brought the author brought to the page.

Of course, it helped that Logan and Rachel had great chemistry and that the author didn't miss a beat in bringing it to the page. Those two were hot together and the sexual tension whenever they were together jumped off the page.

Although not an overly emotional story, Shelly Bell did infuse some rather intense emotions--especially in regards to Logan and Rachel's hesitancy in coming together. They both had issues they needed to deal with and these brought about a nice range of emotions that helped to round up the story well.

Keep in mind that although this is the third book in the Benediction series it can be read as a stand alone. I enjoyed visiting with some of the past characters and getting to know some new ones along the way. There was action, some mystery and a hell of a lot of steamy scenes to keep me interested throughout.

All in all, a fantastic steamy read with the right kind of elements blended in to make it worthwhile.

How can you deal with the possibility of their kink being a reason for being framed for murder?

Suspense, drama and the incredible dominant willing to use BDSM on his submissive. Please excuse me while I fan myself, grab a glass of water and wonder why I never knew Shelly Bell wrote novels until Blue Blooded. Trust me, she absolutely grabs your attention once the action begins - but you do have to be patient until the basics of the novel are placed and the characters backgrounds are explained. I must admit however that the preparation of the characters until the action began, or rather until the novel grabbed my attention, was long and I almost decided not to finish, yet, deciding to keep going was a saving grace. Considering the enjoyment I had reading this novel it is certain that Shelly Bell will be on my to watched list.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVED THIS BOOK SO MUCH!!!! 22 October 2015
By Cara Ross - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
To say that I am super excited to read another book from the phenomenal Shelly Bell might just be an understatement! I have been addicted to her work from the White Collar trilogy and now we are back at the benediction club with her latest installment called Blue Blooded.
We start our story with corruption, death, intrigue and of corse hot BDSM sex! We met Rachel Dawson, the hard nosed journalists in the previous Benediction book, but now we find out so much more about her. We start in dungeon, where Lisa and Kate are showing her around, that is until she runs into Logan Bradford; Kate’s law partner and as normal, he taunts her into being tired up, but just before she orgasms, Anthony Rinaldi (murderer, kidnapper and all around disgusting pig) shows up. Despite being forbidden by Logan to go out and witness Rinaldi getting kicked off the property (yeah! Like we know Rachel is going to do that), she sneaked outside to watch what happens…only Logan finds her and then; talk about being in the wrong place at the wrong time! Rinaldi gets assassinated by two crooked FBI agents
So now Logan and Rachel are on the run, their reputations and lives on the line but they are both determined to not only clear their own names but to expose the villains and put a stop to this after all! But will they survive? And will Rachel and Logan ever realize that that spark between them straddles the fine line between love and hate!
Okay, so I am just going to put it out there! I am truly obsessed with this book, the characters and the whole Benediction crew! Add to the the new Las Vegas crew (especially Hunter and Oz) and really, I could honestly been in love with this crew for years to come!
Like all Shelly Bell books, Blue Blooded suck you in and it makes you fill like you are truly watching a big budget Hollywood movie, not sitting on your sofa in the middle of the day. The writing, plot and characters are simply perfect and I truly loved every second of this book!
I give Blue Blooded a very well deserved 10 out of 10!! And now I am left panting for the next book!
5.0 out of 5 stars *****5 Stars for Logan and Rachel***** 30 October 2015

*I received an ARC of this title in exchange for an honest review*

​This was my first book by Shelly Bell and it won't be my last! I hadn't read book 1 in the Benediction Novel, so I am going to go back to that now. But on to the book at hand....

In Blue Blooded we follow Rachel and Logan. Rachel is a news reporter looking to do her next expose on a Southern Michigan BDSM club and how the lifestyle is happening around her.

​At the club she follows her best friend around while waiting to speak with the owner and runs into Logan. A very attractive Dom who she has known for about a year an a half, but they have always had a bit of hatred toward each other.

One steamy moment, in a very exhibitionist way, the two come together for what will become one thrilling affair! During their time at Benediction something happens with a Mobster from the past they all thought was in prison and as witness to a crime, this sends the two on the run, seeking the truth and trying to prove their innocence. Along the way they grow closer and their time together opens her eyes more to what she is missing in her life; the act of giving up control to someone in the bedroom.

This was such a great story & I can't wait to go back & read what happens before this & what happens next!
5.0 out of 5 stars Blue Blooded is HOT Blooded! 19 October 2015
By Cat's Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
In "Blue Blooded" by Shelly Bell, we hear the story of Logan and Rachel. Can you say HOT?!?! I had to break out the fan for this one - Ms. Bell writes scenes that are so steamy yet very tastefully done. Logan, a DOM, introduces Rachel, a reporter, to the world of bondage as part of her "research" for a story on the lifestyle. Logan is sexy and tough but, boy oh boy, he's also sweet and tender. Rachel is one lucky woman. Rachel took a while to warm up. When a heroine fights love and tenderness as much as she does - when they want to be "tough", it doesn't always sit well with me. However, as Ms. Bell develops the characters, I grew to really love Rachel. The story contains some darkness as well - just a note - it's not all happy and fluff. This only adds to the story and is relevant but be warned. There is action and suspense and love and ooh-la-la sex scenes that kept me glued to the pages (well, my Kindle!!). If you enjoy romantic suspense with a touch of BDSM, this is the one for you. Oh, and despite being part of a series, it can easily be read as a stand alone - as I read it. But now that I did, I'm hooked and can't wait to read the previous works by Ms. Bell. (received copy from Edelweiss for honest review)
