I liked this segment better than the last one, not the least because


THEY MADE IT TO THE FIREWORKS FACTORY!!!!! WHOO-HOO!!!!

Yes, this is the book where the sex goes from "French Vanilla" to "Chipotle Triple-Chocolate Chunk With Habanero Mix-Ins". I have to say, Ms. Bell can write a kinky sex scene quite nicely, thank you....

The concerns I had with Ms. Bell's writing of legal/media/political issues in WC1: MERCY are still there, but they're far more backgrounded as the story becomes less about tha

You guys, this series is really good to be a short story series. Normally, short stories make everything seem unrealistic and rushed. I guess because this is one of those new mini series type things, it doesn't feel rushed at all. However, it makes me wonder, why do they do those and not just combine them all and make one long book. Whatever, either way, I'm actually quiet impressed with this series so far and I think it's the perfect inbetween series to read. Plenty of suspense, and hot hot sex ...more

Greed: book 2 in the White collared series, was just as the first book: fast paced and enticing. The author keeps the momentum and draws you into the plot as the drama unfolds. Kate's resilience and strong character comes through more and more, keeping her independent will even if Nick and Jaxon demands her obedience.
Going deeper into the world of BDSM, she learns about her own strengths and desires, and allows Jaxon to own her completely, but the lawyer within does show her face often to the s

This story is wonderfully written with plenty of suspense to keep you guessing. I really enjoyed the intimate moments between Kate and Jaxon! They're hot, to say the least. I'm curious to see how the relationship between the two will work out. Will it work out? Jaxon wants all of Kate and while she seems to willingly submit to him, she definitely still has feelings for her Nick. Nicholas Trenton is Kate's boss and a very hot complication that I think most women would love to have. Yes, please. I ...more

3.5 - 4 stars

I'm not really sure how I feel about this installment. I liked a lot and some not so much. There were a few twists and turns with some new characters thrown it. At the moment my brain keeps asking questions like "What's going on? "Who done it?"

One thing I do know for sure is that this series is suspenseful and I can't wait to see what unfolds. Next please...

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.

You cannot read each book in the White Collard series individually. The ending of one book bleeds right into the next book. I am not rating each book individually but the entire story. What happens to Nick is heart wrenching. I like the chemistry with Kate and Jaxon.

If you read my reviews with any regularity or follow me on Twitter, you’ve already heard how I’ve soured on most serial romance novels, especially when some seem to go on forever, with a total cost well beyond the price of a comparable full-length novel. But as with so many other romance trends I claim to dislike, there is always another writer out there who can prove me wrong and make me love the thi

**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.**

If you read my review for the first instalment in this serialised novel you'll probably already know I had a lot of problems with it. Since I had already been given review copies of all four sections I decided to give the story another chance though and I have to admit that I did enjoy this part slightly more than the first.

I really don't have a lot to say about Greed that I didn't already say about Mercy. All the things that irritated and confused me the first time around are still here and we

Greed – White Collared Part Two by Shelly Bell is a 2014 Avon Red Impulse publication. I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher and Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.

The first book in this steamy e-series ended on a disturbing and ominous note. Kate pulls herself together despite her boss being very worried, and continues on with her plans with Jaxon. She and Jaxon go “undercover” to the BDSM club Jaxon and his wife once frequented looking for answers about his wife's murder.

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!

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.

When last we saw Kate and Jaxon (that name ... I just can't), they were "connecting" through his legal case and through their sexual attraction. Part I of the series introduced us to the twosome, along with Kate's boss Nick, to whom she also feels an attraction. Jaxon (THAT NAME!) is fighting off a murder charge, and he has enlisted Nick and Kate's (especially Kate's) help.
In Part II, we learn a little more about Kate and Jaxon. She has what you'd call A Troubled Past, and it seems like it's com

OMG! And the plot thickens. I'm so glad I had all four loaded...on to REVENGE. I couldn't stop reading.

We venture deeper into the world of BDSM with Kate and Jaxon while truths are exposed from all directions, and we continue to stumble over clues pertaining to Alyssa’s murder and Jaxon’s involvement. It’s getting complicated as Kate begins to succumb to the new world she’s exploring at night while trying to do her job during the day, and keep her distance from Jaxon.

White Collared started with an intriguing start that only builds with each installment to the story. While I was intrigued from the start, I wasn't completely satisfied with what I found, wanting more from both the characters and the storyline.

Mercy really served as an intro to the lives of Kate, Jax, and Nick, and served to set up the situation that will soon unravel.

The secondary characters were the ones who really rang true for me with this e-serial. I loved Logan, Camille, and se

*I received an ARC in exchange for my honest review

In this second part of the serial, more information related to Alyssa's death comes to the surface and more suspects get added to my long list.

I really enjoyed this installment since we find out just a little more about, well, everything. For starters, more details of Kate's past resurface making me think that the killer might be someone from her past and Kate is his next victim.

We also take a closer look at Jaxon's BDSM club. When they stepped

This story continues with us still trying to determine who the killer is. As we watch Kate come into herself as a submissive, Jaxon is just the one to show her how much pleasure giving up control can be. Their relationship continues to be steamy and hot.

Kate is falling fast for Jaxon. She doesn’t want to have her heart broken when they finally locate the killer and Jaxon moves on from her. But she is willing to play along so that she can be close to him. As they continue to look for the

Woo hoo! The second installment of the White Collared Series has arrived and I am now more addicted than I was after Mercy, if that's even possible.

So, when continue the story from the second we left off (thank god!). Someone is scaring Kate and it is working. She is not afraid of Jax, he is not who scares her, it is the person or persons who seem to know everything about her and the life that she has tried to put behind her and they are not afraid to use it against Kate, to meet their end goal.

This is a series that is definitely meant to be read in order to get the full effect of the story.

This book picks up right where book 1 leaves off.

This Kate in danger after a suspicious phone call. Both Nick and Jaxon has been assigned to protect her from any threat that may be imposed on her.

Kate still fights a constant battle of lust, wanting both Nick and Jaxon. She fights to not be attracted to either, Jaxon because he's her client, and Nick...her boss.
