Last May I was introduced to a new to me author Shelly Bell with her four part serial – White Collared. I enjoyed that story so when I saw this author with a new story that featured the same BDSM club, well, I just had to check it out. I am so glad I did. Red Handed was just as good. Don’t worry, Red Handed was a definite stand-alone story. Jaxon and Kate from White Collared made cameos but only as secondary characters.

When I started reading the first chapter I was rather concerned that I had chosen to start this book at bed time. I know better, but bad habit. The heroine is awaked in the middle of the night by a masked man and threatened with her step mother’s death if she doesn’t do what she is told. OMG! Instant suspense. Although it was difficult, once Danielle made it to Benediction, I was able to settle down and get a few hours of sleep before I finished the rest of the book.

There are couple things that made it very difficult for Danielle to complete the task of infiltrating Benediction and stealing from its owner, Cole. One – Danielle is a painfully shy wallflower with no self-esteem. She may fanaticize, but actually doing . . . Second – although she has had a crush on Cole since she was seventeen years old, she also believes he is responsible for her father’s death.

Benediction is an interesting club. Like many of them – Club Sin, Shadowlands, and Masters at Arms Club – the place was a residence and the owners also live in them, not to mention that the club is almost another character to the story. Cole DeMarco is the owner of Benediction as well as the acknowledged Master. He not only owns the club, but he runs a stable of trainees who also live there.

Not only had I never read a book by Shelly Bell before Red Handed, I had never read anything from Avon's Red Impulse imprint. I went into this one a bit blind, but hoping for a good solid, sexy read. That's exactly what I got. (Oh, and it was a good bit dirtier than I expected... and I am more than ok with that.) Shelly definitely brought the heat. :)

I loved having Shelly's dreamcast for Cole and Danielle when I began this book. Cole was a tough guy to get a read on at first, but picturing Jason Mamoa as I read definitely didn't hurt. (Rawr.) Danielle was a little easier to relate to in a lot of ways. I felt I better understood her motivations and what was driving her. Cole was mysterious. Sexy as hell, obviously interested in Danielle, but guarded and full of secrets. Which, given his line of work, made sense.

This book is as much about Danielle's growth as it is the abduction of her stepmother and the relationship between her and Cole. In the midst of everything else, Danielle is given the opportunity to discover who she really is and embrace some of her darker desires during her time at Benediction. There's a certain freedom to being able to fully explore your sexuality without judgement or recourse. Danielle definitely found that here. She also found a real connection with Cole, a man she's had a crush on since she was a teen.

I already mentioned Red Handed brought the heat, but it also brought the suspense. A little dark at times, it kept me guessing at what would happen next and who was ultimately behind everything. There are some unexpected twists that I enjoyed too. I'd not read the White Collared serial before beginning this book, but I didn't feel that was a problem. The Benediction books stand on their own. I do think I'll go back and read it though, just because I enjoy Shelly's style and her characters.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher, via Edelweiss, in exchange for an honest review.

Holy smokes Red Handed is definitely a panty melting hot read.

First off I love me some interracial love so that was amazing and definitely a plus in regards to this book. Go interracial love!!

Danielle wakes up in the middle of the night one night to a man in her bed and a gun to her head. Now her stepmother has been taken and she’s heading into enemy territory. Having always been a sexual deviant Danielle takes this opportunity at Cole DeMarco’s sex club to help get her stepmother out of danger and to explore her sexual side. Except everything is harder than she thought. Danielle is falling in love with Cole her long time crush and Danielle fits in more than she ever expected.

I loved this book. Seriously it was the bomb.

Danielle has some self-esteem issues but she grows into an amazingly strong character. She starts off as a shy scared woman, but she turns into such an awesome woman who will fight for what she believes in.

Cole is a foxy foxy who has some issues. Cole is a super hot alpha male who has a major hot spot for Danielle. He is running the sex club to help others find what they need in a safe space. He has also done everything in the last couple years he’s been taking care of Danielle from afar.

The casts of characters in this story were absolutely amazing. Gracie and Logan were all absolutely hilarious. I loved how all the characters were important to every part of this story. I am definitely on board to reading the rest of this amazing series.

The entire story and mystery surrounding both Cole and Danielle’s life is so insane I couldn’t believe it. The real evil person in this story was so not who I thought it was. This whole story was just not what I expected at all.
