Editorial Reviews


"Shelly Bell is a fresh new voice in erotic romance. She brings the heat!" ~ Lexi Blake, NYT and USA Today Bestselling Author
"White Collared takes you on a thrill ride of danger, murder and lust, leaving you hungry for the next installment." ~ Stacey Kennedy, USA Today Bestselling Author of BARED
"A rollercoaster ride of jaw-dropping sex, heated anticipation, and a perfect dash of suspense, all tied together with flawless writing. When I wasn't clenching my thighs, I was frantically flipping pages to find out what would happen next! I can't recommend this series enough. Buy it. Devour it." ~ Alessandra Torre, USA Today Bestselling Author of BLINDFOLDED INNOCENCE

"If you love romantic suspense novels and like your stories with a little edge to them on the passion side, you will want to check out WHITE COLLARED PART ONE: MERCY. Think of it as a cross between a thriller like Gone Girl and one of the hugely popular BDSM billionaire stories like the Fifty Shades of Gray or the Crossfire Trilogies." ~ The Romance Reviews

I love serialized novellas, so was anxious to start the White Collared series. Guys, it just didn't work for me. This was due to my lack of being able to suspend disbelief. First we have a law intern being assigned to represent a high-powered millionaire who's accused of murdering his wife. Okay, I didn't go to law school, but really? Could that really happen? I have a couple of attorneys in the family, but was afraid they would laugh at me if I asked them about this. Another thing is, the heroine, the aforementioned intern attorney, also goes undercover with the defendant to his BDSM club to uncover the true murderer. Sounds like solid logic. To be fair, she has apparently read FSoG multiple times so she's boned-up on all aspects of BDSM. Then there's the whole chemistry she shares with both her boss and the defendant. It was just a clusterf*** in my (apparently crabby) opinion. And lastly, the guilty party. I guessed whom that person was at the beginning, but that "Nah, that's too obvious." I finished the first installment, not super excited, but willing to give part two a try. Then I continued to be annoyed, skipped to the end of the series to see if I was right. I was. That just burned me up so I dnf'd the series.

I don't know. If I was into BDSM, I would be severely annoyed by a lot of the fictionalized representations of the community.

On the plus side, the writing was really good. So there's that.

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 makes.

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..

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!!!!!!
