Product Description

The first sexy installment in Shelly Bell's four-part serialized erotic thriller about a young law student who must go undercover at a sex club to prove her client is not guilty of murder.

Driven by ambition …
Third-year law student Kate Martin outran her tragic past to become an intern for her idol and secret crush, the powerful attorney Nicholas Trenton. She is thrilled when Nick assigns her to represent his best friend and client, millionaire Jaxon Deveroux … the prime suspect in his submissive wife Alyssa's murder.

Seduced by desire …
Kate knows they have only a few days to find the real killer, and since signs point to a member of the BDSM community, she volunteers to go undercover as Jaxon's submissive at Benediction—the private sex club where he is a member—to covertly investigate Alyssa's last few months. For years, Kate has kept her dark fantasies a secret … but a chance to explore them with sexy, dominant Jaxon is just too tempting to pass up.

*****5- something wicked this way comes -Stars*****
~this review may contain minor spoilers~

“Mr. Deveroux and I have been friends for many years, and he requested me personally. Jaxon's a very private man, but those who are in his circle are aware of certain... proclivities that may come up in the police's line of questioning.”

After only one book into this series (for which there will be four), this already promises to be a wicked, suspenseful, mysterious, sexy as all hell and emotional ride. This grabs your attention right from page one and doesn't let go, not even after the last page. All I can think about, even as I write this, is getting my hands on the next installment-luckily for everyone, the wait is so short the wall climbing will be kept at a minimum.

“I admit I haven't been to a sex club. I may have read some romantic fiction about sexy billionaire men with emotional issues who call themselves Doms, but I've also done quite a bit of research online about BDSM.”
“I don't care if you've written an entire dissertation on BDSM. I'm not jeopardizing your safety.”
“Even for your best friend?”

Kate Martin is a third-year law student interning at the law firm of her dreams. For years she has been harboring a secret crush on her now boss- Nicholas Trenton and not even the events of her tragic past that she is hiding from everyone was going to be enough to keep her from getting where she is today. When Nick's best friend, Jaxon Deveroux, becomes the main suspect for the murder of his wife, Kate's internship takes an unexpected turn. Time is not on their side and when it becomes clear that the murderer is a member of the BDSM lifestyle, Kate volunteers to go undercover as Jax's submissive.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must buy Love/Mystery book! 9 June 2014
By Rebecca Brown - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
If you are looking for a very well written book that includes mystery, undeclared passion, cheating, and scandals just to click the purchase button. Without any spoilers and references to any other Authors, I can honestly say Shelly Bell knows how to write!
This book contains the forbidden world of BDSM and how one legal intern is getting into something that she might not be able to handle. Our heroine, Kate, is a legal intern to a very prestigious law firm in Detroit. Her goal is to make a name for herself and forget her past. She enjoys her Harley, talking with her friends,and loves her boyfriend Tom, but her world is about to rocked when her boss ,Nick, calls Katie in to be the second chair in a criminal investigation/trial of his best friend Jaxon Deveroux. Jaxon is accused of killing his wife with the "Kink."
Without spoiling any more of this book. I will tell you a lot of good reason why I really liked this book.
1) Shelly Bell gets you going from page one. She starts off with the death of the beloved wife of Jaxon Deveroux. The scene is a perfect mental description of her death. Her work is very detailed.
2) Shelly knows how to write a book with a PLOT LINE! It's not just sex, sex, and more sex. This book provides depths and details.
3) The ending of this book left me hungry to devour her next in the series. In fact I just purchased the entire series to have the rest from day one.
4) If I had to compare the characters in this book to another. I would say this book is a cross of FSOG, with an actual plot line and story!) And any of the.J.D. Robb books. Why? FSOG because of the BDSM involved and J.D. Robb because of the investigating that is taking place to solve a crime.
5) The book takes place in Michigan. I have family there so it easy for me to picture and relate to certain aspects of the book.
6) My only complaint about this book is that it has a cliff hanger. No worries folks as Shelly Bell's next in the White Collard series is Greed, and there will be no doubt that at 12:01A.M. on 6/10/2014 I will be reading greed.
I purchased this book because I wanted a change up from Contemporary Romances. I'm thrilled I.took a chance on White Collared Mercy as I fell in love with the book as Shelly's characters revealed their depth.
This is a 5 star review not because I am trying to impress the Author with my review. It's a well deserved 5 star rating. Read it for yourself and feel free to review. I know Shelly takes her work seriously and it will not disappoint you.
Bravo Shelly! I'm eagerly awaiting book 2!

4.5 stars

I picked this book up thinking it would fit a challenge I was doing. The negative, it didn't. The positive, the story was fantastic and I discovered a new author.

This is an erotic thriller, so there are a number of things going on, namely sex and murder. A perfect blend of my favourite genres.

At the end of the story I was questioning the ethics/relationship between Jaxon and Kate, but am assured I should be. I can't wait to see what unfolds in the next installments.

Bring it on!!
4.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous start! 21 November 2015

A very intriguing start to this erotic serial. I'm definitely moving on to book #2 to see where this story leads us.

Kate is not your average law student, and I really what to know more about her background. We've gotten little snippets, but not enough to whet my appetite yet. I found her 'lie to me once and you're dead to me' attitude a bit two-faced given her plans to go undercover as a submissive without telling her boyfriend. Sorry - but 'it's work and confidential' doesn't cut it for me when her motivation was not purely work but driven partly by her curiosity of the lifestyle.

I can tell there is also more to Jackson's background, and I'm looking forward to reading more. But what I really want to know is whether or not Kate is going to get to live out her fantasy with Jackson and Nick.

We are treated to quite a bit of steam in this first installment, so if you can't handle the heat, do not pick this one up.

5.0 out of 5 stars A hot, sexy and amazing thriller!!! 28 July 2014
By Moon Reviews - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This review will be for the whole series (four books)!
I discovered Shelly Bell by beta reading for one of her books, and since i am addicted! But White Collared is now one of my favorite!!! Well written with a story that is deep, interesting and well put together, full of plots and twists, it will blow your mind! The characters are broken and strong, interesting but mysterious, sexy and hot without lacking brain cells! I loved most of them and hated a few! The writting style is so amazing that you will feel all the emotions that Kate goes through and you will think that you unraveled the whole plot at every twist just to have another one pop up to point you in another direction! The thrilling factor will make you addicted, the deep and emotional (sometimes a little taboo) subjects will make you sad, shocked, compassionate and even angry! The whole series is an amazing roller coster ride!!!!! I did't want it to end!!!! I loved every minute of it and am putting my two thumbs up high in the air!!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars series you don't want to miss.. 31 July 2014
By Fite11 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
i really enjoyed this series, I read them in a matter of just two days.. they were definitely very HOT, /SEXY steamy sex scenes with going to 'kinky clubs' as they put it in the book....
Kate is a a third year law student and working for a very prestigious law firm and is asked by one of the partners, her love interest and Hottie... Nicholas to help her solve a murder case (his best friends, Jaxon's wife, Alyssa.)
Kate is taken back at this request due to the fact she does not do criminal work and that she is a third year.. and she didn't even know Nicholas even noticed her.. She jumped on it immediately.
Once they met with Jaxon and she had already gone over the case, she knew Jaxon and his deceased wife were part of the 'BDSM community, which Kate had read up on and was familiar with (and intrigued) When she met Jaxon she was drawn to him and he was to her..
This book get's better and better each book... it has of course, HOT, Steamy sex, mysteries, love triangle, lies, thriller..
