Product Description

In the second installment of Shelly Bell's four-part serialized erotic thriller, law student Kate Martin enters a world of dark secrets and seductive fantasies at the exclusive sex club Benediction.

Restrained by duty
Reeling from a threatening phone call and frightened that her past will be revealed, Kate turns to the one man she can still trust: Nick. She can't deny her attraction to him, yet she craves the passionate connection she has with Jaxon.

Bound by passion …
Undercover at Benediction, Jaxon introduces Kate to the sensual pleasures found in exhibitionism and voyeurism. While they mingle with the club's patrons, Jaxon and Kate unearth clues about his wife Alyssa's last days that could lead them to her killer. But as she investigates further, Kate is shocked to learn of a cold case that is eerily similar to Alyssa's murder … and when the evidence ties Jaxon to yet another death, Kate begins to question everything she knows about her enigmatic lover.

~this review contains spoilers from book one-Mercy~

In only a couple of days, this case had become important to her. It wasn't solely a way to prove her worth to Nick and the firm. Regardless of how she felt about Jaxson personally, she believed in his innocence, and she wanted the system to work the way it was intended.

It's official, I am completely obsessed with this author and totally addicted to this series. Seriously, this woman takes my breath away- this series is proving to be one helluva wild ride with no end in sight. It's not even just the sex, though that is hella sexy, it's the characters...and the story... and the secrets... and the mystery... and the constant presence of danger lurking around every corner. Your constantly kept on edge for one reason or another and I love every damn minute of it. These are the kinds of books I thrive on, they make you think, they make you feel, they completely steal your attention and refuse to let go.

Her head hurt from all the romantic complications of the last few days. She'd gone from having a crush on Nick to kissing him, having sex with Jaxon, and then platonically sleeping with Nick. If the phone hadn't interrupted them, they would've kissed and lord knows what else.
She was so going to hell.

Greed picks up right on the tail of Mercy- You could say Kate is kinda having a bad day...with a few highlights. After walking in on her boyfriend nailing one of her best friends, Jaxon gives her a ride home and they spend some time 'getting to know each other' before he freaks and hightails it out of her apt. then to top off her night, she gets a disturbing phone call.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shelly Bell Amps the Thriller and Heat Factor in the Second Part to the White Collared Story! 10 June 2014
By BJ's Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
**Please note that this is the second part of a story that is divided into four parts, each comprising its own book. White Collared Part One: Mercy needs to be read before this book in order to fully appreciate the plot, and this review contains spoilers for this prior installment.**

Shelly Bell amps the thriller and heat factor in White Collared Part Two: Greed. Wow, is this a scorcher! I enjoyed this second part of the White Collared series even more than the first, and it's not just the highly titillating nature of this novel. My mystery solving senses were also highly aroused. I can't wait to read the remaining two parts to find out how Shelly Bell is going to tie it all together!

The attention on Jaxon Deveroux is heating up. As he prepares to defend charges that he killed his ex-wife, who he engaged in the BDSM lifestyle with, Kate Martin's allure becomes even more irresistible. Kate is a legal intern who is second chairing his case under the supervision of Nicholas Trenton, his best friend and senior partner at the law firm of Joseph and Long. Nicholas also has taken notice of Kate's charms, both in and out of the court room, and starts to find ways to clue her in to his desires.

In this second installment, Kate and Jaxon have just commenced their undercover mission at the private BDSM club where Jaxon used to take his wife. While they may be "pretending" to be in a Dom/Sub relationship to garner information, let's just say that there is relatively nothing about the BDSM world that Kate is not willing to explore. As their physical relationship takes it up a notch, Jaxon's protective Dom nature begins to surface more to the forefront and he also starts to verbally stake his claim that he doesn't share. Causing Kate's twisted emotions to surface as she attempts to sort out her feelings between Nicholas, her long-time crush and mentor, and Jaxon, who she can't seem to get enough of.

Amidst this steamy background, we also get more clarity as to the state of mind of the yet to be revealed killer; and it's clear that he now has his sadist sights on Kate. Will Jaxon and Nicholas natural protective inclinations be enough to save Kate? Is it possible that one of them is actually the killer? Who will Kate ultimately fall in love with: Nicholas or Jaxon?

I love how Shelly Bell has created both a strong heroine in Kate and yet one that takes great pleasure in giving up control. She does a marvelous job of describing her physical reaction to Jaxon's domination which is almost like a drug in its powerful and calming effect. Moreover, both Jaxon and Nicholas exemplify the protective qualities of an alpha hero without being completely overbearing. A fine line that every author must draw when writing stories with alpha heroes, and Ms. Bell has done a perfect job thus far.

I can't wait for the next installment, White Collared Part Three: Revenge! How will it all end? I'm sitting on the edge of my seat to find out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Intense & Sexy! 13 June 2014
By Shayna Renee's Spicy Reads - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
These serialized erotic romances are taking the Romance World by storm! Every time I log in to Facebook or other social media, I see more and more coming out! Ever since then, I have been devouring these like crazy! I LOVE them! If you want a sexy, suspenseful, quick read, a serial series is the way to go. The WHITE COLLARED Series by Shelly Bell had me gagged, bound, and held hostage from Part One and on. I was lucky to receive all four parts all at once, and let me tell you, THANK GOD! I’m not sure if I could have waited a single day in between parts. Luckily for fans, you do not have to wait too long to have the next part available to you.

❝We all carry scars. Some are just more visible than others.❞

Ms. Bell had me hooked by the end of Chapter One. Holy ****! My heart was racing and I immediately wanted to know who, what, when, where, and why?! We get a great sense of each character and what their background is. Kate, Nicholas, and Jaxon are AMAZING characters, and they each bring such complexity and raw emotion to the table. You instantly crave more and more of their story. With each part of this series unfolding, the more intense it gets. Erotic isn’t enough to cover what this series was for me. Don’t get me wrong, White Collared is a SCORCHING read, but along with that came the thrilling suspense, and the emotional downfall of certain events. With every page and every chapter came new ideas, new questions, and new plot twists. I couldn’t turn away from these words that left me speechless at the conclusion of each part. This was a VERY WELL DONE serial, and it has created another Super Fan for this incredibly talented author. I’m keeping this series close to me, because when I’m feeling in a funk, and I need a pick me up, I believe re-reading the White Collared Series will be my DRUG OF CHOICE!

She was so going to hell.

Greed picks up right on the tail of Mercy- You could say Kate is kinda having a bad day...with a few highlights. After walking in on her boyfriend nailing one of her best friends, Jaxon gives her a ride home and they spend some time 'getting to know each other' before he freaks and hightails it out of her apt. then to top off her night, she gets a disturbing phone call. She calls the only person she can think of-Nick, he shows up in her time of need and that is where we pick up in this book. Both Nick & Jaxon are concerned and think it best that she be removed from the case for her own safety, but Kate will not be deterred. She knows deep down that Jaxon is innocent and wants nothing more than to prove it, which all leads to her first venture into the underground sex club- Benediction. The whole reason Kate went into this was to help Jax find some answers and to prove his innocence, what she wasn't prepared for were the feelings submission would evoke in her. She has to learn how to deal with the feelings she is developing for Jax and try to understand where she goes from here where Nick is concerned, threats are still coming at her from unexpected places, Jax is hiding things from her while she has secrets of her own she is desperately trying to keep hidden, all while the mystery of who killed Alyssa is spiraling out of control. No one is safe, trust is almost nonexistent, and time is not on her side.

“I can't stay away. Since you walked into the interrogation room at the police station, I've wanted to make you mine. My wife's blood was still on my hands, and I was fantasizing about cuffing you to the g**damn table and f****** you then and there. Is that the kind of monster you want?”

This series really is a rollarcoaster of emotions. Kate is unlike any woman you will read, she is just so real- she has real flaws and insecurities, fears, desires and uncertainties. #TeamNick is proving to be just the sweetest and sexiest thing-being there when she needs him, taking care of her, protecting her, yet barely hiding his desire for her. #TeamJaxon is as smokin' hott and confusing as ever. He makes is clear that he is laying claim to Kate, even though the current circumstances are forcing them to keep what they are getting up to a secret, and no matter how much Kate believes in his innocence-evidence comes to light that are causing her to question weather or not he really is. I personally bought my ticket for the #TeamJaxon train during book one and I am sticking to that decision, the man is just so damn hott and there is just this draw that simply cannot be denied. With so much sexual tension you could choke on it, and the danger lurking on every page, deception hiding in the wings with secrets dying too burst open-it's hard to sit still and savor the read, all I want to do is tear through the pages to see what is coming next....it's exhilarating! I never want this series to end, yet I am climbing the walls to see what happens next. Shelly Bell has permanently landed herself on my 'One-Click Addiction' list and I don't see her ever leaving.

Jax needed her.
By offering her submission, she could provide him with some semblance of control. She kneeled on the plush, carpeted floor, spreading her legs wide open.....
“Jax?”
As if she'd taken him by surprise, he spun around with murder in his eyes. His gaze raked over her, from her head to her open thighs, lust replacing the rage on his face.

2.0 out of 5 stars White Collared Part 1 11 July 2014
By Sarah (Feeling Fictional) - Published on Amazon.com
Mercy is the first instalment of Shelly Bell's new White Collared serialised novel. Now, I've said before that I'm not a fan of this new trend of splitting one story into several parts for no apparent reason and that's still the case here. If this first part is anything to go by each section (apart from the final one I hope!) is going to end on a horrendous cliffhanger and none of them are going to work as a stand alone story. Basically, you're signing up to read all four parts, considering it's around 100 pages per section it's really only the equivalent of a normal book so why it couldn't have been released as one full length novel I'll never know. Anyway, on principle I'm no longer reading serials until all of the instalments are available - I'm just not good at having to wait weeks to find out what happens next, usually by the time part 2 is published I've lost interest in continuing the series!

Kate is a third year law student and an unpaid intern at a prestigious law firm working for her idol, and secret crush, Nick. She is hiding a tragic past that could effect her chances of becoming a lawyer but she has worked hard to get where she is and is determined to make it. When billionaire Jaxon is accused of murdering his submissive wife he turns to his best friend Nick for help. The way Alyssa's body was found points to a murderer from the BDSM community and since Jaxon and Alyssa were in a D/s relationship of course he is the prime suspect. It is up to Kate and Nick to prove his innocence.

White Collared is an erotic thriller series but be warned that you will be required to suspend all belief while you're reading it. There were so many times when I was raising my eyes and shaking my head and I'm not an expert when it comes to the law or police investigation procedures so if you read a lot of this kind of story then you'll probably have even more problems than I did. To save me time I'm just going to bullet point some of the issues I had:

- Kate is a law STUDENT specialising in civil law yet she is asked to play a major part in a criminal law trial. Don't they have qualified lawyers for that? Surely when you're a billionaire and money is no object you're going to pay for the best?

- She has absolutely no hands on experience of BDSM, she has read a popular romance series (Anyone else assuming Fifty Shades?) and done some research online but that is the extent of her knowledge so how does she expect to go undercover at a BDSM club as Jaxon's new submissive? She's planning on tracking down a murderer but surely anyone is going to take one look at her and know she's new to the lifestyle and suspect something is up.

- She takes one look at the crime scene photos and identifies the type of knife used to cut into Alyssa's body. She recognises the shape of the cuts because her father used the same kind of knife when they were fishing. So this young student is suddenly more knowledgeable than CSI experts and spotting things that the police have missed the very first time she glances at the photos? Don't you think she might be a little too disturbed that she's looking at photos of a DEAD BODY to concentrate on the shape of the cuts? I can't believe that she'd have been subjected to a lot of crime scene photos as part of her studies when she is focusing on civil cases rather than criminal ones but perhaps I'm wrong about that.

- She is an UNPAID intern working all hours of the day and night, presumably she's got studying to do on top of that since she's not completed her law degree yet and she has no family support or income that we know about. So how does she afford her own apartment and a Harley? Admittedly the apartment is run down and in a bad area but where does her rent money come from? How is she even affording to feed herself?

Don't even get me started on the whole situation with her boyfriend or the fact that she only has to look at either Nick or Jaxon to go weak at the knees. Kate hasn't made the best first impression on me that's for sure, I was irritated by the way she swoons over both men and I found her skills unbelievable. I am kind of curious to find out more about her past though, we haven't been given much information but what we do have is intriguing. Nick comes across as a possessive stalker and frankly more often than not he acts like an ass, perhaps he'll grow on me but at the moment I'm not seeing the appeal. Jaxon is probably the character I like the most so far but even he hasn't sucked me in completely.

I know I've had a lot of negative things to say but Mercy isn't all bad. It's actually well written (if you ignore the fact that the whole situation is implausible) and it's definitely intriguing. The once sex scene we get is pretty hot and I'll be interested to see if things spice up further as the series continues. Since I already have all four instalments for review I'll probably read at least one more section before I make up my mind on the series as a whole. I'm hoping that I have to suspend belief less in the next part though or I probably won't be carrying on beyond that.
4.0 out of 5 stars Didn't disappoint either! 29 June 2014

I reviewed this at my link text with my friend Shelley!

Shel: One thing I neglected to note in my thoughts about part one was that chapter one in each book in this series come from a different perspective..a mystery man...a killer. In this installment we immediately see that his thirst for control did not end with Alyssa, his main target is out there. Court: Creeeeeeepy!

Shel: In part two Kate and Nick and Jaxon are trying to prove his innocence in their very unorthodox plan (Kate playing Jaxon's submissive in a sex club). They are also gathering details and trying to hunt down clues as to who is behind all of this. There's trouble with Alyssa's family, the press is making the murder and the sex lives of Alyssa and Jaxon into a circus, an election is adding more pressure..and if all of that's not enough, Kate is receiving threats and keeping secrets.

Court: All of these things brought a lot of layers into this unorthodox story (like Shel said) so that you root for and feel for every single character that you meet. Not joking. I had a better understanding of motivations by every single piece of dialogue that we were given, even if it was a creepy killer to a best friend, a boyfriend, or a co-worker. The plot definitely thickened!

Shel: ..and let's not forget the sexual undercurrents between Nick and Kate or the burgeoning relationship between Jaxon and Kate. Does anyone else see the cluster-eff that I do? Because I see one coming. Yikes. Court: Majorly! I was seeing that as a set up for some major fireworks of all three of them together, or some blood shed when jealousy hit the mother effing fan! What will happen? I HAVE TO KNOW!

Shel: As I noted last week, there are times when I get a little reader whiplash. Things happen unexpectedly fast or without much background or build up. There's just too much, I think, being left out as far as motivation/intent/development. Court: It definitely made me wish that each part were longer. Way longer. But, the steam is ultra steamy so I didn't mind it as much as I had thought I would!
